Mark Hoppus Tries to Buy Blink-182 Tickets, Fails
Blink-182 fans were on cloud nine when they learned that Tom DeLonge was back with the group, not only for a major tour on the way but also with the promise of a new album.
When it comes to that worldwide tour, though, some fans are frustrated over the high cost and complicated process of purchasing tickets. As it turns out, Mark Hoppus is frustrated, too.
In a message posted to his Discord server, Hoppus wrote, “Yes I understand that the ticketing can be frustrating. I bought tickets for two of our shows myself just to see what the experience was like. I had tickets yoinked from my cart and the whole thing crash out. Dynamic pricing.”
He added, “I’m not in charge of it. It’s meant to discourage scalpers. We’re trying to bring you the best possible show for the best price. This is a tour celebrating new music and the band getting back together. Thank you for your enthusiasm and I hope to see all of you at the shows.”
