Ed Sheeran Fans Warned Over 'Invalid & Fraudulent Tickets' On Sale For Irish Dates

Fans of Ed Sheeran hoping to catch the singer at one of his seven Irish concerts next summer are warned not to buy tickets from any unofficial source.

The Galway Girl chart-topper will play in Dublin, Cork and Galway between May 4th and May 18th in 2018, with tickets for each show rapidly selling out.

Touts have begun to try to re-sell tickets already, with some tickets online advertised for as much as €1,750 per ticket.

Aiken Promotions however, who are in charge of Ed's Irish tour, have warned that any of these tickets are fake.

Due to new rules to target touts, all gig-goers will need to have ID, and a photocopy of the credit card which paid for the ticket.

Aiken Promotions said in a statement: 

"Aiken Promotions caution fans to beware of fraudulent and invalid tickets and websites. Fans are strongly advised NOT to purchase tickets via ANY secondary sellers or ANY unofficial source.

"Some websites are offering E Tickets/Print at home Tickets. These tickets do not exist for ANY of the sold-out Ed Sheeran Irish tour dates. In addition seated tickets are on offer for seats that do not exist. The tickets are not legitimate and must be avoided."

Consider yourself warned.
