NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) – The number of people in the music industry talking about their disdain for concert ticket pricing is growing, and adding to that pack is Country music star Zach Bryan and his “homies.” Bryan has made it known that he hates Ticketmaster (TM) in interviews, concert footage, social media, and the press – making it clear to anyone who will listen that he will continue to fight TM’s fees and pricing.
Most recently, Bryan dropped a surprise live album titled (you guessed it), All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live from Red Rocks), and with it, a social media post in which he addressed a “massive issue with fair ticket prices to live shows lately.” The 24-track live album was recorded in November 2021 at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and came as the next move in an assault against TM that began in October and doesn’t end there.
In the next move to “fight the power,” the 26-year-old Navy veteran has announced the Burn, Burn, Burn Summer Tour for 2023 and will not be utilizing the services of TM for those wanting tickets – instead he’s using the ticketing platform, AXS.
In a video tour announcement, Bryan has comedian Theo Von explain how the ticketing process will work. Tickets will cost between $40–$130, with service fees between $10–$20 per ticket. Tickets purchased via Fair AXS can only be resold for face value via the platform’s fan-to-fan marketplace, while tickets for shows in London, Ontario; Philadelphia, PA; Nampa, ID; and Wichita, KS that do not use AXS cannot be resold. The video states, “Any listings on scalper/broker sites are fake. Don’t buy those. Stay lit.” Also appearing in the video is The Office favorite, Kevin – actor Brian Baumgartner.
Fans can register for the chance to buy tickets via AXS through January 29. Those selected will begin receiving emails on February 13 with on-sale information. See below for a full list of tour dates.
