LouisCK Selling Tour Tickets Directly From His Website

Cutting out the middle-man and going fan direct for his next tour. He says they will be actively looking for and straight-up deactivating scalped tickets.

The scalping idea is interesting, but it seems like the potential for a big PR disaster is there. Unless they plan on investigating every suspected scalped ticket, anyway.

A Statement From Louis C.K.

His direct-download, no-DRM, concert video has sold over 100,000 copies. Louis:

I really hope people keep buying it a lot, so I can have shitloads of money, but at this point I think we can safely say that the experiment really worked. If anybody stole it, it wasn’t many of you. Pretty much everybody bought it. And so now we all get to know that about people and stuff. I’m really glad I put this out here this way and I’ll certainly do it again. If the trend continues with sales on this video, my goal is that i can reach the point where when I sell anything, be it videos, CDs or tickets to my tours, I’ll do it here and I’ll continue to follow the model of keeping my price as far down as possible, not overmarketing to you, keeping as few people between you and me as possible in the transaction.

This is news that I am very happy about.
