Ticket sales for Travis Scott’s Utopia-Circus Maximus Tour are in the dumps, leaving concert promoters scrambling to figure out how to make their money back. In some places, fans can buy tickets for the concerts for as low as $7 on some sites.
As previously mentioned on AllHipHop.com, Scott’s concerts did extremely well overseas. In one stop in Italy, where he performed in the country’s historic Circus Maximus constructed more than 2,000 years ago, locals complained because the audience was partying so hard they were afraid the national treasure might crumble. That night, Scott brought out Kanye West, announced UTOPIA and laid the framework for his domestic tour.
Popular ticket-selling platforms such as SeatGeek, StubHub, TickPick and Vivid Seats are hocking admission passes for the show with prices ranging from $10 to $18, and one person was able to find a pair going for about $110 on Ticketmaster, according to WREG.
It could mean bad news for the tour’s first date in Charlotte, North Carolina on Wednesday (October 12). It might not bring in as much money as promoters had hoped.
People might not have paid a lot for the tickets, but that’ss not a reflection of the quality of the show or to suggest the seats are empty. A multitude of fans can be seen rocking out to La Flame. The cheap ticket sales didn’t bother the recording artist, either. He’s still getting paid and gets to perform for his fans. He tweeted before the concert, “Lettttsssssss gooooo I woke up doing back flipppppsssssssss Charlottte I’m readdddy to goooo more up than up f##kkkk.”

The tour started in Charlotte and will end on December 29 in Toronto, Ontario. While promoters are looking for the prices to go up, fans are just fine getting to see their favorite artist on the cheap.
