Travis Scott’s Low Demand ‘Sold Out’ Tour Tickets Are Causing Resellers To Lose Money
Travis Scott’s upcoming tour is creating a frenzy amongst ticket resellers.
Jacques Bermon Webster II, known professionally as Travis Scott, may perform for a smaller-than-usual crowd during his upcoming tour. In August (2023) Travis Scott publicly announced his “Utopia – Circus Maximus” tour. It would be Travis Scott’s first headlining tour since the Astroworld tragedy in November of 2021, where a crowd surge fatally crushed ten concertgoers.
While questions regarding the future of Travis’s career lingered due to the unfortunate incident, presumptuous ticket resellers appeared confident that the “Antidote” rapper would still draw in his usual large crowds. Unfortunately, the demand hadn’t been that high, causing some resellers to basically give their tickets away, pricing them for as low as $14.
That said, things have gone as planned for some scalpers. In Canada, tickets were sold for double the face value. However, many upcoming dates in the U.S. have a shockingly lower-than-expected demand to see the ambient artist. Reportedly, resell groups like the PFS Buyers Club stand to lose over a million dollars, causing a liquidity crisis that could ultimately put them out of business.
Undoubtedly, the Billboard Music Awards winner will still put on a one-of-a-kind show no matter how many fans actually attend because, thanks to ticket resellers, Travis’s “Utopia” tour almost instantly sold out.
