Luke Combs On Why He Won’t Raise Ticket Prices: “I Didn’t Get Into It To Be Jeff Bezos”

Luke Combs’ new album, Growin Up, is at the top of the charts but the country singer assures fans that one thing that won’t be going up is the cost to attend his concerts.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Luke says despite the rising costs of touring including fuel prices, he won’t raise ticket prices on his shows this fall.

“It’s going to cost me a lot, but all I wanted to do is make a living doing music. And I make enough money to not have to worry about anything and be really comfortable, so I don’t ever want to get greedy,” he shared.

“It’s more competitive out there than it’s ever been, so it’s two-fold for me: I get to go, ‘Hey fans, I love you. I’m not going to gouge you,’ and it’s about a full room, it’s not about making money,” he continued.”I didn’t get into it to be Jeff Bezos and be the richest guy in the world.”

Luke is currently at home with his newborn son, Tex, and he says it will be a while before he takes his son on the road.

“I think you need at least a year before the road thing,” Combs told Lon Helton on Country Countdown USA. “We don’t even take our dog on the road because we feel it affects his quality of life. We want to be sure we have this parenting thing down before we take it on the road. I don’t want [my wife] Nicole to feel trapped on the bus with the baby.  We’re going to give it some time,” he explained.
