Expensive Blink-182 Ticket Prices Left Fans Is Disbelief, So Mark Hoppus Acknowledged The ‘Frustration’

It is truly a joyous time to be a Blink-182 fan: Tom DeLonge recently rejoined the group, they just dropped a new video for “Edging,” they have a new album on the way, and they’re going on a world tour starting next year. When it comes to that tour, though, it’s giving some fans headaches due to the frustrating (and expensive) process of buying tickets. It’s been such an issue, in fact, that Mark Hoppus himself addressed it.

In a message shared on his Discord server yesterday (October 13), Hoppus wrote, “Yes I understand that the ticketing can be frustrating. I bought tickets for two of our shows myself just to see what the experience was like. I had tickets yoinked from my cart and the whole thing crash out. Dynamic pricing. I’m not in charge of it. It’s meant to discourage scalpers. We’re trying to bring you the best possible show for the best price. This is a tour celebrating new music and the band getting back together. Thank you for your enthusiasm and I hope to see all of you at the shows.”
