When Eric Church hits the road on his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour, he has no plans to go easy on ticket scalpers. The tour begins on Friday, but this week he’s cancelled thousands of tickets.
The “Record Year” singer has been open on social media about his frustration surrounding scalpers, revealing in a Twitter post on Thursday (Jan. 5) that almost 2,000 scalped tickets in tour stops (including Philadelphia and Green Bay) have been cancelled. He made a similar announcement in a Tweet posted in late 2016 that roughly 1,000 tickets had been purchased by scalpers in Brooklyn, Boston and Sioux Falls, which have since been re-released at their standard rate.
