Eric Church’s Manager Explains How They Were able to Cancel 25k Purchased by Scalpers

This is a big question that people have been asking since Eric Church announced he was cancelling 25k tickets that were purchased by scalpers to put them back on the makret for fans. How exactly does a country superstar like Eric Church invalidate 25,000 tickets he believes are being resold on secondary market sites? By going through hundreds of pages of sales reports and weeding out scalpers, one ticket at a time.

Church will kick off a 63-date tour across North America on Thursday (Feb. 23) at Bankers Life Arena in Indianapolis and has released 25,000 tickets to fans that allegedly had been bought by scalpers.

“We’ve been doing this for a while, but not quite on this scale,” Church’s manager Fielding Logan with Q Prime South tell Billboard. Working with a team of employees and interns, Logan looked for purchase patterns that matched scalper buying habits. That included multiple purchases on the same credit card or out-of-state ticket buys—like a purchase for a show in Lincoln. Neb., from a credit card tied to a buyer in New York, Las Vegas or Southern California.

“Occasionally we catch someone who we thought was a scalper, but turned out to be a dedicated fan,” Logan said. When that happens, Logan instructed the buyer to show up in person and pick up their tickets at will-call with a valid ID.

“When most of the big brokers heard about those in-person requirements, they just walked away,” he said.

It’s unclear how the cancelations will impact secondary ticket sales on sites like StubHub — company officials wouldn’t tell Billboard how many Eric Church tickets had already been sold on the e-Bay owned platform.

“In the rare occurrence a buyer runs into an issue, StubHub will find replacement tickets or offer a full refund,” StubHub spokesman Glenn Lehrman told Billboard.  “We are confident in our ability to get people who bought tickets on StubHub into his shows.”

Church isn’t waiting for federal authorities to fight resellers and has invested in proprietary software to flag suspicious sales.

“This is the most resources I’ve ever seen dedicated to fighting scalpers,” explained tour promoter Louis Messina with The Messina Group, who is promoting Church’s “Holdin’ My Own Tour”

“They manually have to go through each transaction to scrub the list,” he said. “It’s a ton of manpower and money that Eric won’t recoup, but he’s doing it because he believes it’s the right thing to do.”

While the sheer volume of ticket cancelations is sure to disrupt small-scale scalpers, some in the secondary ticket community are doubtful Church’s efforts will significantly impact major brokers.

“It’s short-sighted because it drives prices up on the tickets that weren’t canceled,” explained Patrick Ryan with Eventellect, a large-scale brokerage outfit that buys and sales tickets in bulk. He also told Billboard he’s doubtful that major brokers will actually be impacted.

“The most nefarious brokers are that ones who are most able to look like a fan,” Ryan said.

Logan said the entire experience has Church and others looking at how to correctly price their tickets going forward. He said he was shocked when he discovered that even Church’s platinum tickets, which start at $260, were being marked up two to three times face value on the secondary market.

“We need to do a better job pricing all of our tickets,” Logan said.

Zac Brown Accepts Humanitarian Award From Keith Urban in Nashville

There was some big wigs in Nashville for day one of the Country Radio Seminar 2017. This is where Keith Urban presented this year’s Country Radio Broadcasters’ Artist Humanitarian Award. He presented the award to Zac Brown in honor of the latter’s numerous philanthropic achievements. He spoke to a room full of people about how he felt about Zac Brown and his efforts. “The first time that I really properly met Zac, he was going to sing on a song with me at this awards show, and I had to pick him up from his studio and drive him over to where we were rehearsing,” Urban recalled from stage. “So Zac and I are in my truck, and we’re driving over, getting a lot of time to talk. The one thing he really wanted to ask me about was about balancing family and touring — how do you do it, how do you go about it? The whole conversation over there was talking about that. That really touched me, from another artist.” The Urban continued to talk about the stuff that Zac Brown has done over the last year that really made him feel he deserved this Humanitarian Award. “When the fires went through Gatlinburg [last year], Zac was the first guy to reach out to me and ask for support.He was there rallying everybody to help others. And to me, that speaks volumes about Zac.” Brown said during his acceptance, “We named our second album You Get What You Give, and that’s kind of my mantra that I live by every day.”

FGL’s Tyler Hubbard Thought His Wife Was Also Pregnant In Africa

Tyler Hubbard and Thomas Rhett are current best friends, but they almost had matching little future best friends.

During the same trip to Africa that Thomas Rhett and his wife went on (where they found out they were pregnant), Thomas decided to hit up the gym while wife Lauren stayed back in the room to hang out with Hayley Hubbard, Tylers wife. And this was a special moment he sure should have stuck around for.

“We were in Tanzania on a seven-day safari with Tyler and his wife, Hayley. And I was literally the last person to find out in our group!” Thomas Rhett, 26, tells PEOPLE.

“We were in the middle of the Serengeti and Lauren was feeling sick, and I was like, ‘Maybe you should get a pregnancy test?’ And she was like, ‘Where am I going to find a pregnancy test in the middle of the wilderness?’ ”

“I was 100 percent sure I was not pregnant – because we were well into the adoption process at this point and we were both like, ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we’ll continue our family,” Lauren adds. “So I was convinced it was food poisoning.”

Seems that something must have been in the water in Africa because Hayley also thought that she may have been pregnant. So both wives decided to take the test.

“Both of our wives actually took a pregnancy test and I yelled to Lauren that we were pregnant, joking because we weren’t pregnant, and she said, ‘Yes, we are, too!’ ” the “May We All” singer, 30, says about the joke that made Lauren instantaneously reveal the results.

“I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, Lauren, I was just kidding,’ so we all celebrated — Lauren, Hayley and I really quickly — and then we ran to the gym to tell Thomas Rhett,” he adds.

“It was an awesome way to find out and we couldn’t be more happy for them,” says Hubbard. “Also, we got the time to get to celebrate together, but then having to come back home and not tell anybody was challenging, but kind of fun. Definitely a cool moment we’ll never forget.”

Get a Sneak Peak Inside Jason Aldean’s Every Day Rituals

JASON ALDEAN and his wife Brittany did a video chat and answered a bunch of fan questions. Even though Jason Aldean didn’t seem as in to it as his wife did, at least we get to hear some inside stuff. One of the first questions was about kids and he said, quote, “We’re working on it.” I believe him.

Asked if they’d do a reality show, she seemed interested, but the last thing he wants after coming home from the road is a bunch of cameras in his house.

Their number one argument is about hunting. She’d like him to stop, which he never will. Not only is it one of his biggest passions, he’s also one of the Buck Commander owners. He’s allergic to cats and called them the devil’s pet. She thinks they’re angels.

Her favorite guilty pleasure is gangster rap and the show “Marriage Boot Camp”. His guilty pleasure is five cups of coffee a day, power bars, and a bowl of popcorn every night.
