Drake’s ticket prices for his upcoming It’s All a Blur Tour with 21 Savage have sparked a class-action lawsuit against Ticketmaster.
A man from Montreal, Canada has accused the ticketing platform of price gouging, claiming that after purchasing two “Official Platinum” seats for $789.54 each for the tour stop on July 14 at Canada’s Bell Centre, the same seats were dropped to $350 each the next day after Drizzy’s announcement of a second show.
The lawsuit, filed by the law firm LPC Advocat Inc., claims that Ticketmaster “intentionally misleads customers for their own financial gain.” The suit also covers that the company was aware of the second show prior to Drake’s announcement and intentionally “concealed this information” to get more money out of their fans.
However, LPC Advocat needs the lawsuit to be approved by the Quebec Superior Court if it is to become a class-action complaint. If the lawsuit is approved, the suit will seek $300 in punitive damages for each customer who joins the lawsuit, as well as compensatory damages to cover “the difference between prices charged for ‘Official Platinum’ tickets and what their regular prices ought to have been.”
