My Chemical Romance’s North American Tour Sold Out Within Hours, New Dates Added As Fans Outraged By Ticket Price Hikes


My Chemical Romance‘s North American reunion tour has proven to be a hot ticket with the band managing to sell out all dates for the tour (an estimated 228,000 tickets) in under seven hours. However, the trek has been met with early controversy in the way ticket sales were handled by Ticketmaster.

The ticketing company employ a ‘dynamic pricing’ practice that allows the price of tickets to increase dramatically based on their demand. Thus, many fans who were left waiting in queue for tickets from the time they went on-sale yesterday (January 31st) were presented with ticket prices hundreds of dollars above the original face value with extreme cases displaying less than desirable seating going for over $1,000.

The outrage was swift, with enough angry fans venting enough about the company yesterday that #ticketmaster went trending on Twitter. My Chemical Romance themselves attempted to help ease the demand by limiting ticket transfer options and announcing additional stops in Newark, NJ and several more dates in Inglewood, CA. Still, numerous fans were left empty handed or incensed by exorbitant prices.

As such, many have been left to resort to the the secondary market, you can see try your hand at that below. However, should you be feeling lucky, tickets for the October 15th show in Inglewood, CA will be going on sale today, February 01st, at 12pm PST at this location.
