Drake – Ticketmaster Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Rapper’s Expensive Ticket Prices For Collab Tour With 21 Savage
The controversy behind the ticket price of attending Drake’s “It’s All A Blur Tour” continues.
According to new reports, Drake’s upcoming tour adds onto the numerous lawsuits Ticketmaster has been facing recently. A class action lawsuit has been filed against Ticketmaster after allegedly increasing the price for tickets to Drake’s “It’s All A Blur Tour” in support of his collaboration album with 21 Savage, “Her Loss.” As previously reported, on Mar. 13, Drake, born Aubrey Drake Graham, took to Instagram to announce the summer tour and when fans got wind of how much they’d be spending on tickets, they felt robbed.
A Canadian law film, LPC Avocat Inc., alleged that the ticket distribution website was aware about the tour before Drake announced it, but withheld information from the public that would’ve benefited them. Reportedly, the complaint reads that a fan from Montreal, Canada purchased two seats, costing up to $790 each, to Drake’s July 14 concert at the Bell Centre. The next day, a new show was added to the tour (on July 15) with Ticketmaster listing the same seats up to $350 less. LPC Avocat Inc. alleged the website “intentionally misleads consumers for [its] own financial gain.” The Montreal based film also claims that the “Official Platinum” seats were normal seats sold “at an artificially inflated premium in bad faith.”
To make matters worse, fans who paid the big bucks for the Canadian shows won’t be seeing 21 Savage, real name Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, hit the stage with the Toronto rapper. A source confirmed that the United Kingdom native won’t be present amid the tour shows in Canada due to his reported immigration and legal issues that could stop him from crossing the border. This story comes after 21 Savage, 30, was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in 2019 after traveling with a H-4 visa that expired in 2006. He was also charged with gun and drug possession, and turned himself into law enforcement for the charges two years later.
