People are furious about ticket prices for Drake's upcoming Toronto shows
Ticketmaster presales launched for a pair of hotly-anticipated Drake shows coming to Toronto later this year, but not everyone seems happy to fork over the asking price for tickets to the final stop on the rapper's It's All A Blur Tour.
Fans queued online Thursday morning, awaiting the chance to score a ticket to the October 5 and 7 shows at Scotiabank Arena, and it was apparent early on that demand was high.

Amid the long queues, Ticketmaster announced, "due to high demand for today's sale, ticket availability is extremely limited."
But when fans were finally presented with an option to select a seat and purchase a ticket, many expressed dismay upon learning that they'd have to pay exorbitant amounts of cash to sit anywhere even remotely close to the stage.

Lower bowl prices were running into the $500+ range, with some even crossing the $1,000-per-seat threshold. Even a seat in the nosebleeds will cost you a few hundo.
#drake Toronto tickets. Sprite presale gone. This is for Thursday. All that remains for general sale I’m assuming is the blue tickets. Good luck 😭 nosebleeds about $300-700. Lower bowl $1000+. pic.twitter.com/9ORAZC2blN— stonkgoat (@stonkgoat1) April 27, 2023
Several people have balked at the price of catching Drizzy live this October, with one commenter even pleading with Ticketmaster to sell standing-room-only tickets at more accessible prices.
@Drake @TicketmasterCA Hey! Can we get some standing room only tickets for the Toronto show? I love Drake but I'm not paying 900$ for nosebleeds man #itwasallablur #DrakePresale— Trae Young Updates (@TraeYoung13) April 27, 2023
"I managed to get through the Ticketmaster line and seeing Drake concert ticket pricing, gave me blurred vision," said one Twitter user, adding, "No mercy for the Toronto show."
But the high cost — reportedly $280 for the cheapest seats — didn't hinder the Sprite-sponsored presale from selling out almost immediately.
