Ed Sheeran has stepped up his war on ticket touts by cancelling 10,000 tickets that were snapped up for his tour by resellers.
Promoters of Ed's tour had previously stressed that anyone who turns up to the shows and can not provide the original booking information, valid ID and the credit card they used to book the tickets, will be refused entry.
Tickets purchased from official sellers cost as little as €55, but are now on re-selling sites for as much as €450. But now they have taken things one step further, with Shape of You star Ed's spokesperson stating on Monday (17Jul17) that the majority of tickets purchased at inflated prices have now been cancelled.
The promoters are reporting that this has resulted in 90% of tickets being delivered directly into fans' hands at the face value.
Despite this warning, reads a joint statement from Kili, DHP and AEG, "it has has become clear that one such company, Viagogo, have ignored the promoters' requests, and there is an increasing number of customers who are realising they have been duped by Viagogo's false advertising and have unfortunately become victims of massive hidden overcharging for tickets".
The process of analysing sales transactions and cancelling tickets known to have been purchased for resale purposes will continue until the tour takes place in May/June 2018.
