Recently, Kip Moore has taken a stand against ticket scalpers…You know, those horrible human beings who snatch-up the best seats at our favorite shows then turn around and sell them for double or triple the price… Kip feels so strongly he even invited a scalper to one of his shows to talk things over man to man. Unfortunately, the fight between artists/fans and scalpers is gonna take more than just one or two angry people to make a difference.
“It’s probably a pointless fight, to be honest,” Kip said at a recent event in Nashville. “I just can’t sit back and watch people get taken advantage of. When you fight so hard to build a fan base, and they’ve stuck with you through the trenches. All of a sudden when you gain success you’re just supposed to just clip their legs out from underneath them, and I can’t do that. So I’m still trying to make it affordable, and then these scalpers they have means and access to get tickets so much faster than other people, and then they’re just using me and using the system.”
“I understand that it’s legal, but that doesn’t mean that it’s right.”
We couldn’t agree more. If only more artists took a stand like Kip Moore and Eric Church to make sure their fans go the best seats in the house for the best price.
