Colorado Fans Upset as Luke Combs Ticket Prices Spike over $500
If you’re trying to hear Luke Combs sing “Beer Never Broke My Heart” in person, what I have to say might break your heart.
Last year, Luke Combs announced a tour stop in Colorado Springs at the Broadmoor World Arena on April 19. When tickets went on sale in September, they were selling for $25.
According to my friend Jeff (who barely got his tickets), the show was sold out in 4 minutes.
Now, on the ticket exchange site AXS, the cheap seats are $150 and the good seats are over $500.
One fan used a meme from a popular tv show to show his frustration:

Another fan called the prices “Kenny Chesney Prices.”
I’m confused why Luke Combs tickets are extremely expensive? Who is paying $350 + for ONE ticket?? That’s Kenny Chesney prices…. Luke’s not even that big yet

In 2018 a fan tweeted at Luke Combs about extremely high concert ticket prices, not knowing that she was purchasing from a resale website.
Combs fired back sarcastically, eventually apologizing and leaving the woman two free tickets at will call:
Well, there’s two reasons. 1. You’re getting two tickets, so 356 + 356 equals 712. 2. That show is sold out, so let’s dive into that. It means that you’re looking at what we call a “Resale Ticket” or a “Scalper Ticket” I charged 50 bucks for my tickets, so next time don’t @ me. https://t.co/9fAvKfneeI
