Huntley Canceled His Latest Show Because of High Ticket Prices: What Happened?

Huntley isn't just in this business for the money, and certainly isn't looking to take advantage of his fans.

By Josh Weiss

After winning Season 24 of NBC's The Voice, Huntley hit the tour circuit to capitalize on his newfound fame, but the Virginia native isn't just in this business for the money, and said he recently pulled the plug on a planned concert partially due to the fact the ticket prices for fans were creeping too high.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Sharing a video message on his Instagram account this week, the singer announced that he decided to cancel an appearance at the Virginia Credit Union Stadium in Fredericksburg, Virgina (originally scheduled to take place this Friday) because tickets were just too expensive.

"I’d rather play for free than charge people $160 a ticket for a show. Didn’t sit well with my heart and I have to go with my gut and cancel this weekend's show," Huntley wrote, promising that anyone who had already purchased a ticket would receive a refund. And the man is good as his word: he will play for free at the Billiken's Smokehouse BBQ restaurant instead. All proceeds from the event, which kicks off at 7:45 p.m. EST and requires a cash donation upon entry, will benefit Loisann's Hope House, a non-profit dedicated to fighting homelessness. Huntley also said he plans to pay his band out of his own pocket for the event.

Will Huntley Make an Appearance On Season 25 of The Voice?

It's definitely possible! After winning Season 13 under the tutelage of Blake Shelton, Chloe Kohanski returned a season later to perform her debut single — "Come This Far" — during Lives. We could see Huntley doing the same thing, although his Coach, Niall Horan, decided to step away from the competition after winning two seasons in a row. He's only the third person to accomplish the consecutive feat after Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.

The current roster of Coaches includes three returning faces — John Legend, Reba McEntire, and Chance the Rapper — and two newcomers, Dan + Shay, who serve as the show's first-ever Coaching duo.

New episodes of The Voice air Mondays at 8/7c and Tuesdays at 9/8c. Click here to watch all of Season 24 to relive Huntley's journey!
