Beyoncé and Jay Z handed out FREE tickets to fill seats

Well, this is awkward.

A few months back, music-lovers everywhere lost their shit.

Why? Because Beyoncé and Jay Z announced that they would be touring Europe again.

They actually LEFT OUT a Dublin date… and I’m a tad bitter.

Anyway, I digress.

The couple’s original sell-out On The Run tour was a major success, but this time around, Beyoncé and Jay Z just can’t sell tickets.

Probably because they cost a small fortune.

A number of fans in Glasgow this weekend were gifted some free tickets to the gig, while other concert goers were upgraded to better seats.

Pretty generous of the pair, tbh!

One fan who was at the gig  tweeted that the concert was empty and that curtains had been pulled in the audience to cover the empty sections.

I’m honestly cringing at the thought.

A number of other lucky fans tweeted about getting free entry into the concert, and we’re mad jealous.

“If you are near Hampden Park go to the main parking lot they are giving out free tickets for the Beyonce & Jay Z concert because of empty seats.”

“Met Beyonce’s security in work and he’s offered me free tickets for tonight.”

Prices for the UK based gigs ranged from £51 to an obnoxious £475 for VIP standing tickets.

No wonder the gigs aren’t sold out.

Bey and Jay still have another 46 European gigs, with just nine of them being sell-out shows.

Also, the couple are playing in Manchester tonight btw.

If you’re in the area, it might be worth lurking around to get a free ticket.
