Drake is a veteran musician who is well-known for being a gentleman when it comes to money. However, 21 Savage's It's All a Blur Tour recently made numerous headlines for their outrageous ticket price. Despite this, a class-action lawsuit has recently been filed against Ticketmaster.
A Montreal man claims to have purchased two "Official Platinum" seats for Drake's July 14 performance at Canada's Bell Centre for $789.54 each, but the price for the same seats fell to $350 the following day after the announcement of a second show.
Ticketmaster is accused of "intentionally misleads customers for their own financial gain," according to a lawsuit filed by LPC Advocat Inc. Ticketmaster claims that the company knew Drake would perform twice in Montreal, but deliberately "hid this information" in order to "squeeze" money from fans.
The Quebec Superior Court must grant the lawsuit its approval. If approved, the lawsuit will demand $300 in punitive damages for each attendee who joins the lawsuit, as well as compensatory damages.
Due to an increasing demand for tickets, Drake decided to add 14 additional dates to his summer tour with 21 Savage. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News for the latest information.
