    Rip-off touts selling Ed Sheeran tickets at 8 times face value.

    Rip-off touts are selling Ed Sheeran tickets for EIGHT TIMES face value 

    Within minutes of tickets for the singer-songwriter's Wembley gigs going on sale today, hundreds were on re-sale websites with staggering asking prices.

    But Ed himself has warned about the “fraud and hideous overpricing” and urged fans to steer clear of the scalpers who are speculating on a massive demand for the shows.

    His promoters have introduced strict terms and conditions and will turn away those without valid tickets where face value is between £49 and £88 for next June’s concerts. Among these rules are that only the original paper tickets with the credit card uswed yo buy them will be allowed admittance.

    Ed has also asked fans who sell on tickets to go through Twickets, which sells at face value.

    Find the full report on this from The Mirror HERE




    I don't know why Sheeran cannot stop ANY tickets being resold as if he ordered his ticketing company to do this the problem would be solved at a stroke.

    It appears that Ed Sheeran is just about the only concert star that is trying hard to stop the touts.

    I would hope that all of the others would do this too.

    Because Ed Sheeran is getting such good press because of how he is trying to beat the ticket touts we may find that more concert venues in the future will also now cut the numbers of tickets that are sold in bulk to the ticket touts.

    That, can only be a good thing.
