Justin Bieber Scalping His Own Tickets?

shady


According to Justin Bieber’s PR team, tickets to his Madison Square Garden concert sold out in 30 seconds, while his entire American ‘Believe’ tour sold out in just an hour. However, ticketing documents obtained by News Channel 5 Investigates reveal shocking new details, via Huffington Post.

‘Bieber’s fans were not told that there were really not that many seats left by the time tickets went on sale to the general public. Ticket instructions obtained from Bieber’s Nashville concert show that out of almost 14,000 available seats the number actually set aside for that public on sale: just 1,001

..In Bieber’s case, the biggest chunk of tickets, almost 6,000, went to American Express customers through an AmEx presale. Another 3,000 went to paying members of Bieber’s fan club.’

News Channel 5 says that it found 14 tickets on TicketsNow (a resale site with a huge markup) in row G, listed for $246 each. Ticketing documents show that this entire row consisted of house seats that were not made available to the general public.

Insider: ‘A lot of artists do this. Their perspective is they would rather make the money than give it to scalpers. It’s not unusual to hold back the best seats and sell them at marked-up prices calling them ‘VIP’ tickets.’

News Channel 5 claims that three years ago, less than 1,600 seats out of 15,000 seats at Taylor Swift’s tour went on sale for the general public, adding that Ticketmaster has no say in what tickets artists make available for sale. Bieber’s publicist did not return calls for comment.

    I really doubt this is completely true. I go to a school of about 3500 kids and about 500 of the girls are all going to his Toronto concert in which they all banded together and got their tix off Ticketmaster like the moment they came out. I HIGHLY doubt that half of the 1001 concert tickets that apparently go on sale are going to just girls from my school. I don’t even like the kid, but this is once again just some shady news story trying to make him seem like a bad person and cause people to dislike him. Ridiculous.

    LOL, I love how everyone is just realizing this now! While I know that Justin could very well sell out all these arenas in seconds, every artist has to do this.

    I mean, how do you think Disney artists who Disney sends on tour make their money/ sell places out? Selena Gomez is PERFECT example of this. Sure, she’s famous..but she can’t sing. So how did her tours sell-out? This is your answer haha.

    Hmmm, makes me wonder about how accurate all those statistics Miley stans keep touting at all the haters are. She probably didn’t do even a quarter of sales everyone says she did.

    If every artist does it apparently, then why is it SUCH big deal that Justin’s management does it..? And anyways, Justin has zero control over this..his tour management team would be the one doing this, not him.

    A lot of manufactured artists do that, that is why I am never impressed when I hear of artists “selling out” in minutes. It is for publicity and more money, but remember.. they just love their fans. ;)

    But its not necessarily the artist..its the record label and management. I doubt Justin thought of ever doing this. Knowing him he would probably just tweet shirtless pics of his self. Record companies are going bankrupt and their not really needed anymore because digital albums/singles are taking over CD’s and its easy to become an artist without them..thats what i think

    the whole x factor ratings tweet and him being SO cocky, the fake laptop/camera being stolen and then revealed today it was for his new music video, his outburst during the directioners and beliebers MTV VMA voting and his tweets about it ‘being obvious’ as well as the stupid cry about not performing too. he is such a baby. his fans are stupid too for believing his dumb ass.
    the more and more he does this stupid shit, the more he looks stupid and people are laughing at him more and the more this happens, the more his fans leave to one direction.—————-uhm thats’s how u c that,allw e c is love/1rst of all stop fucking judging,it’s jis company NOT him.He’s good =lol u mentionig fucking 1d when they probly do that shit so stfu.it was original the way he released baab.

    No duh! Why do you think people say the music business is the worst business ever? He probably learned it from nicki who learned it from lil wayne. lil waynes album got leaked 4 days before the release date and 80% of the listeners said it was garbage so how did he sell a million in a week? he bought them. lol
