Irish Fans Have Been Issued A Warning About Purchasing Ed Sheeran Tickets
Are you one of the many people who missed out?
Tickets to see Ed Sheeran play the 3Arena on the 12th and 13th April went on sale at 10am this morning, and appear to have sold out in a matter of minutes, leaving countless fans severely disappointed.

When you’ve been on Ticketmaster since half 8 ready to go and you still don’t get tickets #EdSheeran

Infuriatingly, tickets are already selling for up to €400 elsewhere online, but if you’re one of the many fans who missed out on a ticket, you might want to reconsider nabbing yourself one on a secondary resale site.
Aiken Promotions have issued a press release warning fans against doing just that.
“Tickets on ANY secondary sites CANNOT be confirmed as valid tickets,” Peter Aiken has warned.
“Purchasing from these sites / secondary sellers can result in huge financial loss and disappointment for fans who could potentially arrive at the venue having been sold counterfeit tickets, only to be refused entry without recourse.”
The only light in this whole sorry affair, is that ahead of this morning’s sale there was speculation Ed would add a further two dates at the 3Arena.
Here’s hoping that thanks to the phenomenal demand he takes heed and does just that.
