MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Eric Church has resold tickets to his Minneapolis show so the right people get them.

Church’s management has identified 902 tickets to his Minneapolis show in September as being held by scalpers. That’s a violation of the sales limits for the show, so the tickets were canceled and put back on sale Friday.

Church says in a statement a lot of acts just want to sell as many tickets as they can and they don’t care who buys them.

Church says he can’t stop scalpers completely, but he can definitely make it harder for them.
