Kip Moore's Open Letter to Ticket Scalpers

 
Posted June 24th, 2014 @ 10:10am

Kip Moore recently posted a hand-written open letter discussing all the things that irritate him as of late: Congress, high gas prices, too many selfies online...but the thing that seems to bother him the most are ticket scalpers.

Kip says he watched his dad work long hours with little pay in order to raise six kids. Kip also lived paycheck-to-paycheck from age 18 to 31 to make ends meet, and understands that many people aren't able to spend money on things like concert tickets, which is why it's important to him to keep his ticket prices low. So when scalpers snap them all up and resell them at a markup, it's not fair to the fans.

Check out Kip's open letter HERE. Warning, there's some adult language.

“I watched my dad bust his ass for not a lot of money while supporting 6 kids until we were able to take care of ourselves,” he begins. “From 18 to 31 I lived paycheck to paycheck working a lot of long hour jobs for very little pay. I know what it’s like to live on a strict budget and wish you had funds to take your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, friend, daughter, son etc. to a show or a game but you just can’t afford to.”

The 34-year-old goes on to share that his own humble beginnings are the reason he keeps his ticket prices so low.
