Bad Bunny’s “Most Wanted Tour” tickets were available for presale Wednesday morning, but many fans are complaining about both outrageous ticket prices, and a buggy process gaining access in the first place due to Ticketmaster’s infamous “registration” verification process.

Ahead of the presale, fans were asked to “register” on Ticketmaster and were entered into a random drawing. On Tuesday night, some fans received a special code, inviting them to the presale. Already, fans were complaining of confusion as many received emails that they were invited to the presale, bit did not receive a code. Others received error messages from Ticketmaster, including that their “session has been suspended.”

Then, when the presale began at 11 a.m., fans were thrown into the typical chaos: hour-long queues with thousands of people in front of them.

Yet, those lucky enough to actually make it to the checkout page were met with exorbitant prices. Fans shared screenshots online that showed ticket prices ranging from $280 in the back sections of the venue to upwards $1,200 on the floor — without including fees.

It seems that even with Bad Bunny’s worldwide recognition and numerous No. 1 hits, his fans still aren’t willing to shell out this kind of money. Even though thousands of people were in the queue, tickets were still available across arenas, showcasing just how unattainable these prices are.

We’ve seen this same cycle time and time again, with big-name acts like Olivia Rodrigo, Noah Kahan, and Morgan Wallen. No matter the genre or artist, the process is the same: fans are forced to “register” for a tour on Ticketmaster, more than half are “waitlisted,” everyone is sent into a frenzy during the presale, and then fans aren’t even able to attain tickets once they catch wind of the insanely expensive ticket prices.

Artists continue to stand by the ticketing giant, claiming that the registration process is in place to prevent “scalpers” and “bots” from scooping-up all the tickets, but then enable Ticketmaster’s “dynamic” and “platinum” pricing policy, allowing ticket prices to rise based on demand. Artists like Mitski faced backlash for enabling the pricing, while Zach Bryan — who famously lashed-out on Ticketmaster — backed-down and used the ticketer for his tour.

Ticketmaster claims the registration process is in place to limit resale, yet they’re allowing verified resale on their own site — just on their terms. The company, along with its parent Live Nation, has faced widespread backlash from fans, the industry, and legislators alike; the debacle with Taylor Swift’s onsale even sparked an investigation into the pair’s merger by the Department of Justice.

It’s an ongoing trend in the industry — ticket prices are becoming more and more unattainable. An analysis from Bank of America predicted that live music will continue to drive consumer spending and the “funflation” will remain in place, with live events prevalent now more than ever. Yet, at some point, these prices have to fall. Industry insiders are predicting that ticket prices are currently in a bubble — and it’s only a matter of time before it pops, causing an entire reset.

Bad Bunny’s Most Wanted Tour kicks-off at Salt Lake City’s Delta Center on February 21 and runs through May 26 in Miami, making stops in cities like Los Angeles, Toronto, New York City, Dallas, Nashville, and Orlando. The tour is in support of Bad Bunny’s fifth studio album, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana, which just dropped on October 13.
