We all shouted joyfully when Blink 182 announced they were heading on tour, then we all screamed at our computers when we couldn’t get tickets.
Sky high prices and being edged out of the system merely add to the frustration of being a regular joe trying to see their favourite band.
Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus experienced that frustration firsthand when he couldn’t get tickets to his own concert.
In a post, the bassist wrote:
“I understand that the ticketing can be frustrating. I bought tickets for two of our shows myself just to see what the experience was like. I had tickets yoinked from my cart and the whole thing crash out. Dynamic pricing. I’m not in charge of it. It’s meant to discourage scalpers. We’re trying to bring you the best possible show for the best price.”
Dynamic pricing is when the prices increase as demand rises.
Everyone wants to see Blink 182, hence, the insane ticket cost.
One Twitter user posted this relatable statement
What’s my age again? The age where I have to decide between rent and Blink 182 tickets— abrielle (@justaskabbyyy) October 12, 2022
They’ll be in Toronto on May 11 & May 15. Good Luck! .
