It's disgusting really. I tried in the pre-sales and this morning and didn't get any tickets. In fact, Ticketmaster had sold out on one of the gigs 1 minute before they were due to go up for sale!
Many of these tickets are clearly being put directly on reseller sites and it amazes me that nothing is being done about it. Reselling tickets at a premium is bad enough. Having the reseller themselves buy tickets and resell is disgusting. But for resellers to actually be given an allocation which they can sell at any price they like is horrendous!
Looking at the Plymouth Pavilions gig, over 10% of the venue's capacity was on reseller websites this morning 30 minutes after they went on sale! It's awful.
