I don’t know why celebrities feel the need to speak on matters involving other celebrities, especially when it’s regarding money; but Kid Rock did.
Seems like the Michigan rocker isn’t a fan of Justin Timberlake’s and Jay Z’s Legends of Summer Tour.
Kid Rock’s beef isn’t with the two artist however, as he explained on Piers Morgan Tonight:
“It’s garbage. It’s garbage. It’s highway robbery. I don’t care who you are, you know… I would consider both of them, you know – in a circle of friends in the business, but I don’t agree with it.”
“I’m a musician. I play concerts. I’ve been very fortunate. I’ve always tried to keep prices what I think are fair…”
I understand where Rock is coming from and I can’t be mad. Ticket prices for The Legends of Summer Tour begin around $90; with the highest being around $250 or so.
The average guy isn’t going to be able to afford that ticket price. Not to mention the second or third ticket (unless you’re a loser and you’re going alone), food, drinks, parking…
AND hair, outfit, shoes, and accessories for the night, because you have to look fly (just saying).
I’m pretty sure if Kid Rock could get away with stadium tours and charge people $90 a ticket to get in, he would do that shit.
In a heartbeat.
Besides, if fans want to see an artist, show, or performance, they’ll find a way to come up with the money, regardless of price.
So if people are willing to pay large amounts of money to be entertained and they’re not complaining about, fuck it.
