This is one of the dumbest things I have ever read. Every time a band prices tickets at (for example) $100 then people buy and resell them for $600, you know who's making money off the band? The resellers. They're making five times the amount of money per ticket than the band is. Supply and demand. No one is forcing you to buy those tickets, but there are certainly people out there who are willing to pay that.
Ticket prices don't go down if people buy them. If fall out boy does an arena tour and tickets are $250...is that ok?
And the "pit" at the UC show is $1500 a ticket face price. It's absolutely absurd. Do I actually think people will boycott? No, it was an exaggerated statement. But to say its the dumbest thing you've ever read? Come on. I'd say reading face value of tickets at $600-$1500 certainly rivals it
