Blink-182 fans have been experiencing a bit of sticker shock when attempting to buy tickets for the trio's reunion tour.
Billboard reports that the trek is using dynamic pricing and the base level for most tickets have been $200, with some markets seeing prices as high as $600.
The wave of complaints about the pricing led to Mark Hoppus trying to purchase tickets for a couple of shows, and he wrote on his Discord, “I understand that the ticketing can be frustrating. I bought tickets for two of our shows myself just to see what the experience was like. I had tickets yoinked from my cart and the whole thing crash out."
As for using dynamic pricing, Hoppus wrote, “I’m not in charge of it. It’s meant to discourage scalpers. We’re trying to bring you the best possible show for the best price. This is a tour celebrating new music and the band getting back together. Thank you for your enthusiasm and I hope to see all of you at the shows."
