James Charles just announced that he will embark on his first ever Sister Tour across America! If you're a fan, this means you get to see him and all his bubbly, makeup-loving antics live in the flesh. Per his announcement, this tour will feature lots of different activities and, of course, plenty of merch. Unfortunately, fans are a bit appalled by the price of his VIP tickets. They're especially concerned about the age range of his fanbase and what it may say about him that he's charging such prices for supposed children to meet their favorite beauty influencer.
But are these beauty fans simply overreacting? We gathered the full tea on the ticket prices so you can be the judge!
To be fair, some fans are just going to have to realize they don't HAVE to pay the expensive VIP ticket prices to meet James Charles.
Charles will have affordable tickets available, even if they aren't the specific ones you want. The Sisters Tour tickets for his Charlotte, NC, appearance will be as low as $53, give or take tax, insurance, and additional venue fees. Since he's appearing in seated venues, the prices will range from $53 to $500 for the best VIP pass, and you can just pick whichever seat works for you. You don't have to meet James Charles. If you want to go, you can pay the price you're comfortable with and enjoy the event in its entirety, as opposed to gunning for that one-on-one time.
Spending $500 on a VIP pass or any money at all on Charles is up to YOU. As a public figure appearing at an event, it's actually his right to charge whatever he chooses. He determines his own value. We don't get to determine that for him despite what this celebrity-driven society tells us. We can only decide whether or not it's what we want to pay.
