Few things irk an artist more than seeing their fans being taken advantage of in the name of profit. Ticket scalping for financial gain is an easy way to ruffle some feathers, and Kaskade decided April 30 in Boston that he would make an example of one such profiteer. Don’t miss the video at the bottom.

Kaskade, aka Ryan Raddon, came across an individual named David selling a ticket to his Redux Tour show at Bijou Nightclub in Boston for a bit above the normal asking price.
…here in Boston. I just hit up a kid who is selling a redux ticket on Craigslist. He wanted 200 bucks...— Kaskade (@kaskade) April 30, 2014
So Raddon sets up a little sting operation under a fake name.
I had him meet me here in my hotel lobby (under an alias(duh)) so I could purchase the ticket/confront him…— Kaskade (@kaskade) April 30, 2014
ohhhhhh man that was awkward… hahahahahaha…— Kaskade (@kaskade) April 30, 2014
We can imagine.
The moral of the story? If you’re going to scalp tickets, be careful. Kaskade is watching you. Check out the video of the meetup below, and find tickets and dates of the Redux Tour here.
