Country Singer Cancels 25K Concert Tickets

Eric Church had already delivered a fair warning to those who purchase tickets to his Holdin’ My Own Tour through the secondary market.

According to CNT, he’s now followed through on that promise by canceling 25,000 tickets purchased by scalpers. More than 2,000 of those scalped tickets were for his two-night stand in Nashville starting May 26.

All shows that remain on his tour, with the exception of the April 22 stop at Cincinnati’s US Bank Arena, have been affected.

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets directly from his official website so all purchases are made at face value. In addition to ensuring that fans aren’t paying inflated prices, Church urges avoiding the secondary market because it’s likely that tickets sold by secondary brokers will be invalid by the time the show happens.

When the tour was announced in August 2016, Church revealed he commissioned a proprietary technology that scrubs ticket purchases using up to 10 different data points and automatically flags orders made by scalpers. Orders may be cancelled at any time and without warning.
