Singer Oliver Anthony Cancels Tennessee Concert Due to High Ticket Prices
Knoxville, TN – Renowned singer Oliver Anthony has announced the cancellation of his highly anticipated concert at the Cotton Eyed Joe venue in Knoxville, Tennessee. The decision comes as a result of the exorbitant ticket prices, which left fans frustrated and disappointed. Tickets for the event were listed at a staggering $99, with an option for a meet-and-greet priced at $199.
Taking to social media to address the issue, Anthony expressed his deep regret for the high ticket prices and explained the circumstances surrounding the cancellation. He emphasized his strong desire for affordable shows, ideally pricing tickets at no more than $40 and meet-and-greet opportunities at $25, making them accessible to a wider range of fans.
Although no new concert date has been scheduled for September 27, Anthony has a series of shows booked for October. The mishap regarding ticket prices stemmed from Anthony delegating the task of booking his shows to someone else. This miscommunication resulted in the unfortunate pricing dilemmas that caused disappointment among eager concert-goers.
To rectify the situation, Anthony is actively searching for an alternative venue in Knoxville that can offer tickets at a reasonable price – $25 per ticket – along with a complimentary meet-and-greet opportunity. In addition, Anthony has made it clear that he is committed to issuing refunds if necessary and is taking full responsibility for the ticket pricing mishap.
Anthony shot to fame with his viral sensation song, “Rich Men North of Richmond,” which secured the number one spot on multiple music charts and made history on Billboard. The politically charged track captivated audiences, but unfortunately fell out of the Top 10 in its fourth week on the charts.
Hailing from rural Virginia, Anthony is not your typical Hollywood icon. He is a farmer and former factory worker, using his powerful lyrics to critique and challenge the actions of wealthy individuals. This artistic approach has garnered him attention and admiration from fans worldwide.
Fans eagerly await news of the rescheduled concert and remain hopeful that Oliver Anthony’s commitment to affordability will prevail.
