Joel Osteen Ministries Working to Limit Ticket Scalping for “Night of Hope” Event

Joel Osteen-YS

As Joel and Victoria Osteen get ready to launch their “America’s Night of Hope” tour, ticket scalpers are in high gear.

The tour by Lakewood Church’s pastoral couple starts Saturday at Yankee Stadium. It will be the second time the Osteens have spoken at the baseball team’s new home, which opened in 2009.

On Thursday morning, two seats in the first row of the stadium’s Delta Suite B were for sale on eBay and StubHub for $850 each.

“We’ve had this issue since we started doing tours about 10 years ago,” said Andrea David, spokeswoman for Lakewood Church and Joel Osteen Ministries. “We encourage people to get their tickets from the official venues or our website or ticketmaster.”

In an effort to minimize ticket scalping, the Joel Osteen organization does not sell tickets in large blocks, Davis said.
