DISAPPOINTED Beyonce fans were left fuming this morning after tickets to her UK tour sold out in just TWELVE MINUTES – only to appear on auction sites for hundreds of pound over their face value just moments later.
Bitter complaints flooded Twitter after fans missed out on their chance to see the diva on her eight-date arena jaunt that begins in Birmingham on April 26.
Many of those who missed out on the 80,000 tickets for it blasted those who were quick to re-sell theirs on sites such as ebay.
Chris Lloyd-Jones wrote: “I can’t get Beyonce tickets on @Ticketmaster yet people have put them on eBay for hundreds of pounds!! WRONG!! About time something was done.”
Another fan Alz vented her anger and wrote: “Tickets are gone because people buy them and sell them on eBay. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GO DON’T BL***Y BUY THEM.”
Tickets went on sale at 9.30am this morning and at 9.42am, Ticketmaster UK posted on Twitter to tell fans tickets had sold out.
Some fans were a little more dramatic and claimed to feel suicidal at the injustice.
Another fan, Stategy, wrote: “Missus made me get up early to try and buy Beyonce tickets for her and her mates. Tickets went on sale at 9.30am and sold out by 9.34am.”
Elsewhere on Twitter, one joker set up a spoof account for former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland and wrote: “If y’all couldn’t get tickets for Beyonce, don’t worry – there are still plenty of tickets left for my tour. Good seats still available…”
