Kid Rock Disagrees with Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake On Ticket Prices
Kid Rock appeared on Piers Morgan Interview last night to touch upon everything from legalizing marijuana to sharing his business strategies on his upcoming summer tour.
At a time when most artists have high ticket prices, the Michigan-born rocker is putting together a bill that will offer seats for $20. It is meant to be an affordable option when he plans on promoting his 10th studio album, Rebel Soul.
“I’m a musician. I play concerts. I’ve been very fortunate. I’ve always tried to keep prices what I think are fair,” he said. “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.”
Rock also spoke about his contemporaries such as Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z. Recently, the pair announced their Legends of the Summer concert series, where Morgan pointed out tickets “are going for about $225 each.”
“It’s garbage. It’s garbage. It’s highway robbery. I don’t care who you are, you know?,” Rock said of artists charging for tickets. “I would consider both of them, you know – in a circle of friends in the business, but I don’t agree with it.”
