Free Meet And Greet For Fans
Anthony Oliver did not approve or even like the fact that his fans were going to have to pay for the meet and greet. He wanted it to be free. “It’s also horses**t that they’re charging extra for the VIP meet and greet,” Anthony commented on his Facebook post. “Those are supposed to be free.”
Oliver Anthony doesn’t want his fans to have to pay in order to see him in person. From his Facebook post, he is working hard to make sure no one pays for the meet and greet at Cotton Eyed Joe’s. From what he said, he is taking care of this as quickly as possible.
Rescheduling Is Possible
Oliver Anthony is working on this issue. He went as far as to say “if we have to reschedule this event somewhere else we will.” He is currently “working out the details.”
At the time of publication, it was unknown exactly how Anthony was going to work out those details. He is adamant about his fans not paying any more money than absolutely necessary.
How Much Were Fans Paying?
According to the Cotton Eyed Joe website, the cost of one ticket was $90. The price for the meet and greet, which Oliver wants to be free, was set at $199. Obviously, this didn’t set well with Oliver Anthony. He does not want his fans paying that much per ticket.
“These are supposed to be affordable shows,” Oliver Anthony said in his Facebook post. “Please don’t pay $90 for a ticket.”
Oliver Anthony’s Ideal Price For Concerts
Oliver Anthony told his friend setting up the concerts he wouldn’t want his fans to pay for tickets “more than $40 a ticket.” He would actually prefer the cost of concert tickets to only be $25. Whether his fans pay $25 per ticket or $40 per ticket, it is still an excellent price to see such a country music star.
Oliver Anthony appears to be a rarity in today’s music industry. He has told his fans not to buy tickets to his concerts. Who does that? Do you think he is looking out for his fans?
