Very good idea.
This morning Ed Sheeran announced a string of Irish dates as part of his European Tour next year. He’ll be playing in Galway, Cork, Dublin and Belfast next May.
For the concerts, he’s changed one major thing. He will not be permitting anyone to resell tickets. This includes touts and the general public.
He has decided to clamp down on people making a profit from his ticket sales and ripping off other people.
The person who buys the ticket will only be allowed to enter the concert and must provide the ticket along with booking confirmation, credit card and a valid form of ID.
They released this statement:
“Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit. On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off.
On all the stadium dates you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation and credit card, plus a valid form of ID or you will not be granted entry to the show.”
Tickets for the shows go on sale on Saturday 8 July at 9am.
