Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke (pictured) slammed venues who take a cut of a band’s merchandise sales following a 12/8 show at the Armory in Minneapolis.

Radke took to social media to state that the venue’s business practices were so upsetting that he “refused to sell . . .  merch” there.

“(They) demanded I pay 25% of gross sales to them so I told @ArmoryMn to go fuck themselves,” Radke wrote in a post. “(For) your information these venues taking a merch cut is criminal, there is no reason or excuse for venues to take bands merch % they do it because we let them get away with it, it’s literally stealing.”

“Ticket sales, food, alcohol is ALL PROFIT 100%,” a supporter replied. “It’s fucking highway robbery 2 demand 25% of YOUR merchandise also. It already costs you money just make the merch & transport & sell it.”

No date has been set for the next Falling In Reverse concert at the Armory.
