After realizing the kids were working hard to buy their tickets, Combs immediately offered to reimburse the birthday boy and his friends for their tickets.
“Okay, I have a question for you all, what’s up mate? How much did it cost you… How much were your tickets? $100? $200? You all paid $200, one hundred dollars each. Oh my God, I think I only got $140 here. Y’all want that, get your money back. I’ll get you some more,” he told them as he sat on the edge of the road. stage.
He had a member of his team get a pen to sign some of the young fans’ things, including their cowboy hats, Luke Combs merchandise and more.
