Ed Sheeran fans warned of fake expensive tickets and backstage passes
 Add to favorites

Ed Sheeran fans have been warned about fake tour tickets and backstage passes being sold at extortionate prices.

Sheeran is set to kick off his UK and Ireland stadium tour in May – where he’ll be joined by support act Anne-Marie.

However, recent months have seen a spike in the rise of counterfeit and touted tickets.

“It’s been brought to our attention that ‘backstage’ or ‘promoter’ passes for Ed Sheeran in Manchester have been appearing on social media for resale at massively inflated prices,” said a SeeTickets spokesman. “While these tickets appear to have come from SEE Tickets we can confirm that See has no affiliation with these tickets and that they are fake.”

They continued: “We would like to take this opportunity to clarify that these tickets are not legitimate and we urge the public to not purchase any tickets that have not come from either a reputable, primary ticket agent, or through Ed’s chosen ticket resale platform.

“See is proud to have no affiliation with secondary ticketing and we will continue to do our best to protect fans and consumers from ticket touting, through our work with the FanFair Alliance and our ethical resale platform Fan-to-Fan.”

After the government introduced new legislation to prevent secondary ticketing sites from buying tickets in bulk using automated ‘bots’, many have welcomed the new rules from the internet search giant – however some believe that more needs to be done, calling for tout sites to be lowered in their search ranking.

Among the critics were Ed Sheeran’s promoter Stuart Galbraith, who hit out at the search engine for allowing Viagogo to appear so highly in search results – and being listed as an “official source” of tickets. Research by the Fanfair Alliance shows that 77% of searches for tickets by popular artists show a secondary ticket website that has paid to rank highly on Google searches.

Speaking to You & Yours, Galbraith said: “Google needs to bow to pressure and stop taking money for tickets which are sold on the secondary market.”

Sheeran’s upcoming tour dates are below. Tickets are available here.
