Online entrepreneurs are scalping free tickets to rapper Kanye West’s Nov. 17 “Sunday Service” at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church for hundreds of dollars as faithful and fans struggle to find a space in the sold-out 17,000-seat church.
As a typical example, one online ticket-seller identified as @takingpayment is offering four tickets to the West & Osteen Sunday Service for $300 each or $1000 for all four.
A spokesperson for the event said that general admission tickets became available from TicketMaster as of 10:00am Saturday morning.
A FREE general admission mobile e-ticket can be obtained through TicketMaster.com or the TicketMaster App beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16,” the spokesperson said.
Earlier this week West brought his Sunday Service to inmates in a Houston, Texas, jail.
