Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx unloaded on scalpers who are selling tickets for the band’s stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett for thousands of dollars. A Vince Neil plastic surgery claim just leaked.
One fan said on Twitter, “Hell I might just travel to a show. Tried buying Houston tixs thought it was presales today. They have bought them up and want 1,000- 2,000 for a good ticket. So if I’m spending that I might as well go out of the country. Ready to travel.”
Sixx responded, “Scalpers suck.”
Another fan told Sixx, “I choosed to go Miami show of the stadium tour , because it will be opening day of the tour . But it is not opening day already 😅. I feel something about it 😶.”
Nikki shot back, “We have to be fluid since the demand is so high. I am sorry it won’t be opening night but honestly the show will be even better by then.”
Jmnesq posted on Reddit, “Obviously, there are about 10 different meet and greets / VIP packs out there – – the Crue, Def Lep, Poison, Joey Allen, Joe Elliott, and others. On Stubhub and other resale sites, and even Ticketmaster’s resale site, there does not appear to be a way to differentiate which comes with which. Anyone have any thoughts?”
Heyitsthephoneguy commented, “Best I could tell they all had some sort of themed title. Don’t quote me on this, but Crue’s were the Feelgood package, the Kickstart package, etc. Most folks went with the Kickstart package which averaged around $2,000 and included VIP seats, and a meet and greet with the band. That might help in your search. Check out Motley.com to see the actual title.
Also, one thing I noticed about stubhub was that resale pricing was significantly higher than website pricing. People bought them up, raised prices, and are reselling them that way. Which I guess is fine, if you don’t mind spending the money for something you see value in and want, but I would look for what’s available through Motley and/or Ticketmaster first.” Sammy Hagar recently dropped a ‘real’ Van Halen singer bombshell.
