The comedian is keeping ticket prices low, including fees within the ticket price, and paying sales tax for fans.
Tickets for the tour, which is scheduled from October through February, will be available exclusively through Louis C.K.’s website.
“I’ve cut the ticket charges way down and absorbed them into the ticket prices,” Louis says. “To buy a ticket, you join NOTHING. Just use your credit card and buy the damn thing. Opt in to the email list if you want, and you’ll only get emails from me.”
All of the tickets are $45 and include sales tax, which Louis says he’s paying for you. The benefit for him? He won’t have to get angry emails from fans who’ve had to shell out a bunch of cash to see him on tour due to circumstances out of his control.
“Ticketholders are admitted subject to the following stipulations,” the website reads. “By clicking the buy link and purchasing a ticket to this event, you agree to the following:
“This is a revocable license for admittance.
“We reserve the right to change the method of delivery to Will Call (pick-up at the box office) at any time after purchase. If we make this change the ticket(s) may be picked up within 2 hours of the show’s start time and a photo ID and the charge card used for the purchase will be required to claim the ticket.
“Tickets may not be resold for any amount above face value.
“If the ticket is found to be offered for resale above face value we may invalidate the barcode and refund the ticket price.”
Louis notes that he’ll be playing some very new places because it was a challenge to find venues that could work with his exclusive ticketing service.
He’ll be making less money that if he did a standard tour and in some cities he’ll have to play smaller venues and play more gigs. He’s says he’s OK with this because he likes doing more shows and, “I still make a whole lot more than my grandfather who taught math and raised chickens in Michigan.”
