Kid Rock Blasts the Price of Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake Concert Tickets
A quick search on Ticketmaster for their July 19 date at Yankee Stadium in New York reveals nosebleed seats as cheap as $49 and on-field seating as costly as $293, with varying prices between. But that’s still too much for some people.
“It’s garbage,” Kid Rock told Piers Morgan during an interview. “It’s highway robbery. I don’t care who you are. I would consider both of them in the circle of friends in the business, but I don’t agree with it.”
Rock is embarking on his own tour this summer, and is keeping tickets as cheap as $20. He’ll reportedly lose out on an extra $50-100k in revenue as a result.
“It’s gotten out of hand,” Rock explained. “The price of concerts, the price of entertainment period. Whether it’s a sporting event, going to the movies, buy a soda there, whatever…I’ve always tried to keep prices [to] what I think are fair. And I’ve always said I’m proud that I can walk around with my head held high and look someone in the eye knowing that I haven’t taken an unhonest dollar from a working man.”
