Drake Fans Are Pissed Over The Ticket Prices For His Tour With 21 Savage
Add another group of angry fans to the list of people who are shocked that late-stage capitalism has led to a monopoly over ticket sales and thus an ability to over-charge for concert tickets. But Taylor Swift‘s ticket snafu already led to Senate hearings, so the Drake fans will just have to be mad about it with no major political recompense. Fans are pissed that ticket prices for Drake’s new tour with 21 Savage are as much as $1000 a pop. I mean, this makes sense to me even outside of monopolistic corruption because Drake didn’t pay for that hideous multi-million-dollar mansion of his by charging two dollars for tickets and merchandise!
Just like the Swifties and the Beyhive before them, Drake fans (who call themselves Team Drizzy) are furious. Uproxx says that fans took to Twitter after the tickets for the It’s All A Blur Tour came on sale, which starts in June, and is promoting their joint album from last year, Her Loss. It should be called “Money Loss” because these tickets will drain a wallet faster than a good strip club on a Saturday:
However, upon seeing the prices–which some fans are reporting to be as high as $1,000–fans are balancing their “wants and needs” to decide if this particular “rich flex” is worth the cost…
Of course, most of those tweeting seem to be reporting much more reasonable prices–around $400 or so–but that’s still a stretch if you consider the 20-something target demo and… well, everything going on in the world right now.
Here are some of the reactions:

I think that Drake will probably do something about this because I think he knows his favorite demographic will have a hard time coming up with such a large amount of money for concert tickets. I mean, do teenagers really have that much disposable income?
