Eric Church to ticket scalpers: 'We're coming for you'

Eric Church to ticket scalpers: 'We're coming for you'

In a news release, Fielding Logan, one of Church's managers at Q Prime South, said it's both time-consuming and labor-intensive to comb through the 1 million tickets sold.

"They buy thousands of tickets across the US, not just mine, and they end up making a fortune", he told the Associated Press.

The "Mr. Misunderstood" singer says, "scalpers use fake credit cards, fake id's".

Country artist Eric Church has taken a fan-friendly stand against ticket speculators canceling more than 25,000 tickets for his spring tour.

They are killers in the box. "I'd like to play in the Premier League again, preferably at City because the fans already know me". The adventurer in him admires their willingness to commit plenty of players forward. "They attack with a lot of people".

Fielding Logan, one of Church's managers, said in a statement the process of identifying the scalped tickets, canceling orders and putting them back up for sale wasn't easy: "It's time consuming and labor intensive to comb through almost one million tickets".

The seats salvaged by Church and his team for his Holdin' My Own Tour will be available for fans to purchase beginning now for his Canadian dates, with others released on February 27. Then, the tickets are resold on third-party sites at ridiculous markups.

However, Church remains adamant in ensuring his fans won't have to pay inflated scalper prices to see him perform. Each show features two full sets of music with an intermission in between.

Last year Congress passed legislation that would make the computerized software used by ticket brokers an "unfair and deceptive practice" under the Federal Trade Commission Act, but Church argues that this law isn't being enforced. He doesn't want to set prices at $500 for the closest seats because "that's not the people who have gotten me here". "All of this is fraud", he said about scalping bots (via Billboard).
