Viagogo: MPs warn music fans not to buy from ticketing site

Music fans should stay away from secondary ticketing site, Viagogo – that’s the warning from a group of British politicians.

Members of Parliament (MPs) from the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee criticised Viagogo for “misleading” customers into thinking they’re buying official tickets for events.

Lots of music acts have stopped people who have bought tickets from Viagogo from entering their concerts. This is because the site sells some tickets, which are much higher than the original price.

Viagogo says it’s disappointed it has been singled out and says that hundreds of thousands of British citizens use its service without ever experiencing any problems.
