Bikini Kill reuniting for select shows

After announcing their reunion, Bikini Kill tickets sold out in literally one second. However, it looks like most of the buyers weren’t really Bikini Kill fans. In fact, a good majority of the tickets are being resold on ticket resale sites for triple, quadruple or even nonuple (that’s nine times) their face value.

According to AXS, the tickets were originally priced between 40 and 45 dollars. However, StubHub prices reveal that the cheapest Bikini Kill ticket is now selling at 104 dollars for Hollywood, 179 dollars for New York City and 225 dollars for Brooklyn. The most expensive Bikini Kill ticket is selling for 775 dollars at the time of press.

Of course, this has infuriated lots of Bikini Kill fans. Many are citing the irony of ticket scalpers selling out a riot grrrl band’s show. Recognizably anti-capitalist, it’s pretty safe to say that Kathleen Hanna would not approve of this. However, many fans are criticizing the band of not taking the proper precautions against ticket bots and scalpers.  

Additionally, some scalpers are asking for an extra 50 dollars to even ship the tickets.

Bikini Kill has yet to comment on the inflated ticket prices.

The band recently announced that they are adding another Los Angeles show. However, that date has sold out as well.

Bikini Kill will be reuniting for four select shows in New York and Los Angeles. The lineup includes Kathleen Hanna on vocals, Tobi Vail on drums, Kathi Wilcox on bass and Erica Dawn Lyle on guitar.
