Fans of ‘Pick Up Your Feelings’ diva Jazmine Sullivan had to pick up their jaws after discovering tickets to her hotly-anticipated, North American ‘Heaux Tales Tour’ sold out in a matter of minutes after going on sale.
Once the news got to Sullivan’s desk, she took to social media to apologize and even vowed to expand the tour to accommodate more attendees.
Believing the quick ticket sell-out is due to resellers purchasing in bulk to price gouge later, Sullivan addressed the matter via a statement on Instagram (as seen above).
“I want to address what’s happening with my tour tickets. The reality is these are regular people who purchased tickets and are reselling them for a profit,” she wrote on her IG story. “It’s not right but that’s what happening.”
Later, she said:
“I just felt like I needed to say something because I hate to see my true fans upset and unable to purchase tickets that they’ve been waiting for.”
To remedy the infraction, Jazmine is not only adding more shows to her itinerary but also playing bigger venues in previously scheduled locations.
I put this on IG but FYI tickets go on sale to all tomorrow @ 10am local time. I know many places sold out, so we are moving to bigger venues. 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/ttMAL4W7o8
