If you were able to score tickets for Zach Bryan’s Burn Burn Burn tour, consider yourself lucky.
He kept his word and found a way to evade going the traditional Ticketmaster route, as he has been very publicly outspoken about his disdain for the company, opting to use private vendor AXS instead.
And with sales officially starting today, according to his Instagram, Zach says they sold out in 30 minutes…
So yeah, they certainly weren’t easy to come by, to say the least, with fans being randomly selected to purchase after signing up for a raffle, essentially, to get a chance at purchasing.
Though, his goal was certainly accomplished, with no major website crash and the highest price paid for any ticket, with fees and fees included, was $156.
If you look at any other major tour, even just in the country genre, that’s pretty dang incredible.
It seems like it’s hard to even get a nosebleed seat for any concert for less than $100 these days at a lot of venues, by the time you calculate all the aforementioned, insanely overpriced taxes and fees
And because tickets went so fast (which isn’t all that surprising, really), Zach confirmed they’re adding more shows in Philadelphia, Tulsa, New York City and Duluth:
“Who knew you could sell tickets at a reasonable price, to real fans, in a fair way. With no arrogance attached and a lot of people pissed at me, we did it. Due to overwhelming demand, I’m going to add a few shows to the ‘Burn, Burn, Burn’ tour.
If you registered for Philly, Tulsa, New York City or Duluth, we will be sending out emails for the additional shows today so be on the look out. I wish I could play more to meet the demand but the boys & I only have so much to give.
Thank you all so much for your patience during this process, no one has ever done this before at this scale and that’s something I’m extremely proud of. Not one ticket was sold for more than $156, at their abolsute highest including taxes and fees. There will continue to be no tickets for sale on scalping sites.
Fair ticketing for all, for an almost sold out tour.”
In the caption, Zach explained how much he and his team went through to pull this off, and though there are certainly people who are unhappy with the way the ticketing process worked for this run, he seemed pretty happy and content being able to keep prices extremely reasonable for what is arguably the hottest ticket around this summer:
“Didn’t care about selling out the tour in thirty seconds, I cared about people getting reasonably priced tickets.
We sold all the tickets in 3 waves to actual fans, we hired teams to limit bots, and we sacrificed a lot of personal things to give real people, real seats. Thank you guys so, so much.”
These rules don’t apply to any festival or rodeo dates, so if you aren’t able to be at a solo, headlining show, maybe check out his other festival options and see if he’ll be anywhere near you for something like that.
