Ed Sheeran fans warned by Ticketmaster not to buy concert tickets as gifts
Ticketmaster has warned Ed Sheeran fans they shouldn't buy tickets to his upcoming gigs as gifts unless they will also be attending the concert.
Tickets for Ed's shows in Belfast, Dublin, Cork and Galway go on sale from Saturday, July 8 at 9am.
In a bid to ensure ticket touts won't profit from the massive concerts, fans will only be granted access to the venues if they present their ticket, a valid ID, and the credit card the tickets were purchased on.
Ticketmaster have also confirmed that any tickets bought as gifts won’t be valid unless the person who purchased them attends the gig.
A spokesperson said: “Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit.
“On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off."
The Thinking Out Loud singer will perform at the Boucher Road Playing Fields in Belfast on May 9 as part of his new UK and Europe stadium tour.
The star will also perform dates at Pairc ui Chaoimh in Cork on May 4-5 and Galway's Pearse Stadium on May 12-13.
He will also perform two nights Phoenix Park in Dublin on May 16 & 18.
