Superstar Ed Sheeran BANS tickets from VIAGOGO as war on ticket touts finally gets real

Those attending Sheeran’s concerts this week in Manchester have been asked to buy new face-value tickets upon arrival if theirs were purchased through secondary site Viagogo, as those would be deemed invalid.

Viagogo offers users the opportunity to resell tickets for more than their face value.

Sheeran’s tour promoters Kilimanjaro Live, DHP Family and AEG Presents warned fans in July last year that those who had purchased “unauthorised” Viagogo tickets would not be allowed entry to the concerts.
