Country singer Kip Moore has taken aim at ticket scalpers trying to profit from his upcoming Dirt Road tour.

The “Faith When I Fall” hitmaker, who is set to head out on the road in the autumn, recently expressed his anger over stories suggesting people are trying to re-sell his tickets at high prices, despite his best efforts to keep tickets between $25 and $35.

He writes on Facebook.com, “We scaled back production across the board to make low ticket prices possible. There are things in this world that p**s me off that I know I’ll never be able to change… but above all, the thing that pisses me off the most is scalpers.

“I could sit back and ignore it, because I know it’s a losing battle, but I just can’t do that. People are trying everyday to fix this problem, but it’s a difficult task…”

Moore is not the only country musician to lash out at ticket scalpers this year – in April, Eric Church canceled 1,000 tickets to his concert in Minneapolis when he found out they had been purchased by those looking to resell them.
