Zach Bryan is committed to making sure scalpers can’t rip off his fans.
The “Something In The Orange” singer announced dates for his Burn, Burn, Burn American Tour 2023 and will be selling tickets using the platform, AXS. Bryan announced his tour as well as his plan to keep ticket prices fair with a little help from comedian, Theo Von.
Von appeared in a social media clip inspired by The Office to explain exactly what fans of the Navy veteran turned country singer could expect.
“What’s up, you little orange-loving, happy and sad at the same time Zach Bryan, cult-worshipping good people of America? It’s your boy himself, the Lord’s oyster,” Von said as the clip began.
“I’m here to tell you exactly how this sh-t’s gonna go down. Tickets will start at $40 and won’t be higher than $130. Service fees will be as low as $10 and no higher than $20 per ticket, plus credit card fees and state taxes, that Zach and his sound homies have no control over.”
“There will be absolutely no bullshit at all, no hidden fees or ninja pricing,” Von continued.
The comedian then directed fans to the AXS website where they could sign up to register for tickets through Jan. 29.
“These registrations will be scrubbed to remove scalpers, bots, and low road lizards,” the comedian noted.
Tickets purchased through the AXS platform will be non-transferable, according to the video. With the exception of Bryan’s Red Rocks stop, fans will be limited to purchasing four tickets. (For Bryan’s Red Rocks show, fans will be limited to two tickets). Fans will then be selected to purchase tickets for the Burn, Burn, Burn Tour beginning on Feb. 13.
The stipulations around ticket purchasing outlined in the video apply only to Bryan’s headlining shows and not his festival and rodeo dates. Festival and rodeo dates, which will be announced at a later time, are out of his control, the same video indicated.
Following his tour announcement, Bryan took to Twitter to remind fans that he’s “fighting the good fight” against companies such as Ticketmaster who utilize less-than-fair practices such as dynamic pricing.
“We’re out here fighting the good fight with these human snakes at ticketing companies and dark art bots on the internet. Good luck, and here’s to fair pricing for all. Touch nut homies, and God Speed,” Bryan wrote.
Bryan has been very vocal about his dislike for Ticketmaster. Back in November, he re-posted a tweet from the organization, A More Perfect Union, asserting that Ticketmaster is run by “SUITS [WHO ARE] RUINING LIVE MUSIC.”
More recently, he released a 24-track live album of his Nov. 3 performance at Red Rocks called All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster. The album quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on Apple Music, according to The Tennessean.

Ticketmaster came under fire back in November after botching the pre-sale for country-pop superstar Taylor Swift’s upcoming Eras Tour. Ticketmaster’s servers crashed during the pre-sale, leaving fans of the “Anti-Hero” singer waiting in the virtual line for hours. After insufficient ticket inventory remained, Swift canceled the general sale for her Eras Tour, calling out Ticketmaster for the fiasco.
The ordeal has prompted a Jan. 24 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing led by Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, Variety reported.
Bryan’s 28-date Burn, Burn, Burn Tour kicks off Apr. 15 in Georgetown, Texas and concludes on Aug. 30 in Kansas City, Missouri. Fans who are interested in registering for tickets via the AXS platform can click HERE.
