Eric Church Continues His Fight Against Ticket Scalpers



We previously reported that country megastar Eric Church was taking matters into his own hands when it comes to combating ticket scalpers. Well, Church has taken a huge leap in his fight, reportedly canceling more than 25,000 tickets that were purchased and placed back online for resale by scalpers for his upcoming tour.

Church explained his thoughts on the widespread issue to The Associated Press.

They buy thousands of tickets across the U.S., not just mine, and they end up making a fortune. They use fake credit cards, fake IDs. All of this is fraud. We’re getting better at identifying who the scalpers are. Every artist can do this, but some of them don’t. Some of them don’t feel the way I feel or are as passionate. Our fans know that as long as we tour, we’re going to do everything we can to make sure they pay face value for the ticket

The tickets that Church canceled will be released back to the public at noon today in the time zone that the respective venue is located.
