Ed Sheeran beats the touts

17 Juillet, 2017, 22:51 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Up to 10,000 tickets for Ed Sheeran's 2018 United Kingdom stadium tour which were sold on the secondary market have now been cancelled, according to the tour promoters.

The flame-haired star added seven new dates to the high-in-demand stadium run, two dates in London, Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle and Manchester for May and June 2018. Even though more tickets were added a few hours later, it quickly became clear that numerous tickets had been bought by touts, who were then trying to sell on the tickets for vastly overinflated prices, such as £174,000 for one pair, on resale sites.

According to the promoters, more than 90% of tickets were bought at face value by Ed Sheeran fans, with just 10% finding their way into the hands of touts.

Sheeran is a vocal opponent of for-profit secondary ticketing, and his manager, Stuart Camp, has given evidence to a parliamentary hearing on "ticket abuse".

"The process of analysing sales and cancelling tickets purchased for purposes for resale will continue until the tour takes place".

However, he is putting them back up for sale on his own reselling site, Twickets, for face value opposed to the extortionate amount they were up for. They are now warning that there is an increasing number of customers who have paid over the odds for tickets that could yet be cancelled.

All ticket resales that have been identified as breaking the newly updated Consumer Rights Act have been reported to the Competition and Markets Authority.

Any customers who are concerned they may have been "defrauded" by Viagogo have been directed to Claire Turnham's "self-help guide" for obtaining a refund, hosted on the FanFair Alliance website.

Sheeran's next ÷ tour show is at the Videotron Centre (20,396-cap.) in Quebec tomorrow.
