Rob Lucas In The Morning

Kid Rock Rails JT and Jay-Z For Ticket Prices

Even though I'm not the biggest fan of his music, here's another reason why Kid Rock will always have the Rob Lucas Seal Of Approval:  His take on concert tickets.  Makes me wanna buy a ticket for his show at Darien Lake even if I can't go...

Kid Rock tells CNN that Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are robbing people by charging $225 for concert tickets. "It's garbage. It's highway robbery. I don't care who you are... I would consider both of them in a circle of friends in the business but I don't agree with it. It's gotten out of hand. The price of concerts, the price of entertainment period. You know, whether it's a sporting event, going to the movies, buying a soda there, whatever... I've always tried to keep prices what I think are fair. And I've always said I'm proud that I could walk around with my head held high and look someone in the eye, knowing that I haven't taken an un-honest dollar from a working man... I make a lot of money. I can take a pay cut."

He adds, "I'm going to tell people, a lot of artists already do it. I think I've been guilty of it in the past, too. We take some of our tickets, we put them on StubHub, overcharge with what the market determines they're worth... I'm taking 1,000 of them and I'm scalping them. People are going to be pleasantly surprised when they come in there and they see, you know, four hot dogs and two Cokes for $20... We're going to give free coffee at the end."
