Fans are clearly upset with Zach Bryan’s presale concert tickets being even more expensive than Taylor Swift’s latest Eras Tour tickets. Earlier this year, Zach Bryan took aim against Ticketmaster by dropping a surprise live album, All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster, in an effort to shine a light on the platform’s increasing ticket prices.
The presale tickets will be up for sale from 7 September and are priced between $75 to $325.
Zach Bryan has decided to temporarily conclude his campaign against Ticketmaster. Despite avoiding the ticketing platform entirely for his 2023 North American tour, the country music sensation has announced that he will once again utilize Ticketmaster for his upcoming “The Quittin Time Tour” in the next year.
In a social media statement, Bryan addressed the switch, acknowledging the complaints about AXS from the previous year. He made a nod to the title of his 2022 live album, “All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster,” stating, “All my homies still do hate Ticketmaster, but it’s hard to realize that one person can’t change the entire system. It’s intentionally broken, and I will continue to feel deeply concerned about the high cost of tickets in an unfair market.”
Bryan’s extensive stadium tour is set to kick off in March of the following year in Chicago, with subsequent stops in cities like Brooklyn, Toronto, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and more. The Ticketmaster pre-sale is scheduled to commence on Thursday, September 7th (using the code STUDIO), followed by the general on-sale on Friday, September 8th via Ticketmaster.
Bryan began selling tickets for his current tour through Fair AXS earlier this year in an effort to keep costs down and steer clear of the problems that beset Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” pre-sale. Similar to Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan programme, ticket buyers were chosen at random from among those who registered for the pre-sale. Service charges were limited to $10 to $20 each ticket, while prices ranged from $40 to $130.
Earlier this year, Robert Smith of The Cure took on Ticketmaster for the band’s own North American tour, forcing the company to make partial refunds for “unduly high” ticket prices after revealing their plan to guarantee that fans could purchase “affordable” tickets. Smith later admitted there were problems with the Ticketmaster Verified Fan Sale.
