Still looking for tickets?
As I write this blogpost Ticketmaster, SeeTickets, Ticketline and TicketWeb appear to be sold-out (although it’s worth constantly checking these sites daily/hourly in case any get returned in the days leading up to the concert)
The other option – if you are prepared to pay more than the face value of £47.50 (which worked out at £52.25 each inc. booking fee) – is to buy from a third-party seller:
The current prices when I just checked earlier (Fri 25th June) were:
- viagogo from £66.00 (save extra 5% discount using code
GetMeIn is a service from Ticketmaster, whilst Seatwave and Viagogo are also reputable companies – in case you need reassuring just Google how well customers were treated last year when Michael Jackson sadly passed away – these companies offered hassle-free refunds. Personally I would not use any other third party companies (other than these three) to buy tickets. There are so many scam ticket sites that you need to be very wary of before parting with your hard-earned cash.
