Tickets to Drake’s “It’s All a Blur” tour with 21 Savage which is set to being in June were initially advertised to begin at $69, but fans freaked out to see the price tags on the tickets when sales went online on Wednesday—with tickets touching the $500 mark and some even the $1,000 mark.
Concert ticket prices have become a hotly-contested subject since fans lashed at Ticketmaster for unfair business practices earlier this year in the wake of Beyonce’s Renaissance tour. The fans’ reaction to Drake’s tour has been pretty much the same.
“Drake, Cashapp, and Ticketmaster all solidified their place in hell today. Cuz wtf are these prices? $400 for a seat in section 200and Why are bots STILL securing all the tickets?! Idk what cash app even did but I don’t like them cuz their name was involved in this nonsense,” one Twitter user Patrona said.
Fans also called out CashApp, official ticket distributor for the tour, for lying about the listed $69 price tag. “LMAO cash app is a damn lie…. drake tickets starting at $69.50 where???” Lexi Lucas tweeted.
“So Ticketmaster really turned concerts into luxury experiences with these high ass prices huh? Why is this Drake & 21 concert $500/ticket? We are being bamboozled!” user Certified Daydreamer tweeted.
The four-time Grammy award-winning Canadian rapper made the announcement on Instagram with a montage-style video. “IT’S ALL A BLUR TOUR with @21savage… Dates now live on DrakeRelated.com click the link in bio for more information and details for your location,” he wrote.
This will be Drake’s first tour since the onset of the pandemic. He is also scheduled to co-headline the Dreamville Festival later this year along with J. Cole.
The Tour which comprises 29 dates, is being sponsored by Sprite, Visa, and Cash App. Tickets will go on pre-sale from Wednesday and general sale from Friday on Cash App and Sprite Presales.
