Springsteen fans "furious" at sold-out gig

No primary category set

Bruce Springsteen fans today become the latest group to register “fury” at coveted tickets being sold on eBay. Springsteen’s Belfast concert on December 15th became the fastest selling gig ever as the 10,000 tickets were sold out in eight minutes. Those who tried to buy via the Ticketmaster website have said that at 9am, when the tickets were supposed to have gone on sale, they were immediately greeted with a message that they had sold out. Disappointed fans were angered to see the tickets available on eBay within minutes, and selling for up to three times their face value. With one fan reportedly asking “how many tickets were actually made available online by Ticketmaster”, for once the blame for the fans’ ticketless state seems to be on Ticketmaster themselves rather than eBay.
