Harry Styles fans devastated as tickets for Brixton show sell for £1500 by ticket scalpers after selling out in minutes
Harry Styles fans were left devastated as tickets for his one off show in Brixton sold out in four minutes - and now ticket scalpers are selling them on for up to £1500. The award-winning singer recently announced a 'One Night Only' show at O2 Academy Brixton ahead of his highly anticipated third album 'Harry's House'.
However, many fans were left disappointed at missing out on the coveted tickets as they sold out in record time on Ticketmaster following the O2 Priority Presale at 10am on May 10 yesterday, with the main batch released today (May 11). Resell site Viagogo are now offering tickets from £400 all the way up to £1500 when checked by MyLondon on May 11.
Many took to Twitter to express their sadness at losing out on the May 24 gig, with one commenting 'How do people even get tickets for Harry Styles? Like I swear it’s impossible lol, sold out in 5 mins.' Another added: "Why did I even try to get Harry styles tickets they sold out legit 30 seconds before I got in." A third also said: "All tickets are sold out now :( under 3 minutes… tbh madness, I was 38,000 in the queue again."
Keen fans can still pick up tickets through resellers, however, they should expect to pay a much higher price, with some tickets currently listed on Viagogo for as high as £1,503. Another Tweet said: "Impossible to get tickets for Harry Styles and they’re already on viagogo for 4x the price."
The quick sell-out time and inflated price was also lamented as unfair by further fans. One wrote on Twitter: "That is so unfair!! especially when you go on @viagogo and people are selling them for £500+ for one tickets… when selling price was £50, it’s actually not fair."
Grammy award-winning musician Styles will also be returning to London to perform on his 'Love On Tour' concerts in June 2022. He is known for solo hits such as 'Watermelon Sugar' as well as songs from his time in the band One Direction including 'What Makes You Beautiful'.
