NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Country star Eric Church cancelled more than 25,000 tickets to his spring tour that were purchased by scalpers and is making those seats available to fans for purchase.

Although Church has cancelled purchases from scalpers on previous shows, this is the largest group of tickets he’s tried to keep off the secondary market, where they often go for double or triple their original price.

The “Springsteen” singer told The Associated Press he’s going to do everything he can do to stop what he calls a criminal organization that’s making millions. The tickets will be released on Tuesday at noon local time for the remaining stops of the Holdin’ My Own Tour.

Pollstar says the 60-city tour is among the top 10 global tours with ticket prices averaging $60.67.

Church’s tour will make a stop at Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Arena on Thursday. There’s no opening act. He will start promptly at 8 p.m.
