ANY other ticket at ANY other price is from SCALPERS.”
A fan named Chris shared his thoughts about the tickets and said, “$125 isn’t high, not for @RATM and @runjewels together. That is a solid line up. Blame @Ticketmaster for allowing people to resell tickets over face value. They are ENABLING scalpers and make it easier for them to sell them. There has to be a better way.” After his thoughts, a fan named KZ replied and said:
“Exactly. You’re basically paying a little over $60/act. People need to chill. This is the most I’ve ever spent for a show and I have to fly for it! Some things are just worth being broke for.”
