If you know anything about Kip Moore besides the fact that he’s a talented singer and songwriter, it’s that he’s as honest as the day is long. And his tolerance for things that are unjust or unfair, especially when it comes to his fans, is pretty limited.

OK . . . that tolerance is actually nonexistent. Kip loves his fans.

The other thing he has zero tolerance for is ticket scalpers. In a handwritten letter he shared on his Facebook page, Kip shows off that dedication to his fans’ well-being and his opposition to the shady business of reselling tickets to his shows.

Kip writes, “I know what it’s like to live on a strict budget and wish you had funds to take your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, friend, daughter, son, etc. to a show or game, but you just can’t afford to.”

He then lists several things that “piss him off” including “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.”

 

Kip points out that the scalpers are purchasing tickets for his upcoming CMT Up in Smoke Tour during pre-sales, then selling them on other sites at super-inflated prices.

He also informs fans that his tickets, with the exception of VIP packages, sell for between $25 and $35.

The country star has some pretty harsh words for the offenders, which you can see for yourself at right.

Have we mentioned how much we love Kip Moore?
