Ed Sheeran Fans Blast 'Immoral' Ticket Touts Re-Selling Tickets For Profit

Tickets for Sheeran’s two shows at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena sold out in 40 minutes today - and some seats are on sale online for over £900.

Alongside singers like Adele, Sheeran has teamed up with face value ticket platform 'Twickets' for his April and May concerts.

The site allows users to re-sell tickets at face value or less, however dozens of listings appeared on secondary ticketing and auction sites offering the passes at inflated prices - minutes after they went on sale.

Disappointed fans vented their disgust on social media after failing to get hold of tickets to the 14-date UK and Ireland tour which were released on general sale on Thursday morning.

On secondary ticketing site StubHub, four tickets to his gig at The O2 Arena on May 1st, originally priced at £77, were being offered at £999 each plus booking fees. A spokesman for eBay confirmed tickets had been removed from the auction website. 

The dates on Friday and Saturday, April 28th and 29th, are part of a 42-date world tour to promote the star’s third album
