Ticketmaster is facing more accusations of price gouging on concert tickets, and this time it comes on behalf of Drake fans.
The Canadian superstar rapper and singer is going on tour this summer for the first time since his European tour in 2019. And fans are already doing everything they can to secure their seat for the much-anticipated show.
After the Grammy winner announced the “It’s All a Blur” tour – featuring fellow rapper 21 Savage – on Instagram, fans immediately took to the Ticketmaster site to snag their seats. While some fans were happy with their huge purchase, some fans noticed something was a little off.
One Montreal man claimed that Ticketmaster intentionally misled “consumers for their own financial gain” after he purchased tickets to Drake and 21 Savage’s upcoming tour.
Ticket prices for the tour were reportedly advertised at $69 on Ticketmaster, but some fans reported seeing tickets starting at $400 and third-party ticket sites like SeatGeek have tickets on sale for up to $16,999 in certain cities.
