Arctic Monkey tickets being resold for £600 - 11 times their normal price - ahead of Manchester gigs

General release tickets went up for sale for between £52 and £99 this morning.

Arctic Monkey tickets are already being re-sold for £600 each - up to 11 times their face value - despite still being on sale at some venues.

General release tickets went up for sale for between £52 and £99 this morning.

At its height, 80,000 were in the virtual queue for tickets for the Manchester gig, and 67,000 in the same line up for tickets to the Sheffield show.

Ticketmaster tweeted desperate queueing fans to encourage them to “be patient and don’t refresh or you’ll lose your place.”

Fans scrambled but many were left disappointed - with people rushing to Twitter to jump on any spare tickets being re-sold.

On Twitter, one user said: “Selling standing Arctic Monkeys Tickets for Swansea, £300 each.”

Another said: “Selling four standing Arctic Monkeys tickets for Manchester, £500 each.”

A third said: “Selling two Arctic Monkeys tickets for Swansea arena. £600, ono.”

Another tweeted: “Selling two Arctic Monkeys Sheffield standing tickets, £400 each.”

Ticketmaster’s regulations state re-sales should be for no more than what you originally paid, and using an official re-sale partner.

But with re-sellers popping up for excessive prices, peoples frustration is growing.

One user complained: “Scumbags selling out Arctic Monkeys tickets no less than 20 mins after the release then reselling them for nearly 400 straight after.”

Another agreed: “If you’re reselling Arctic Monkeys tickets already just know I hate you.”
