One Direction fans face ticket "nightmare"

Tickets went on sale for One Direction’s 2013 arena tour this morning and fans up across the UK and Ireland will no doubt be ecstatic to be seeing the boys perform live at some massive venues.

Many will be disappointed though as, according to Channel 4 documentary Dispatches, promoters give allowances to agencies such as Seatwave and Viagogo who sell the tickets at hugely inflated prices.

o2 Priority tickets were being sold yesterday on Seatwave for £1,200, which fan Gemma calls a “nightmare” and states is “ridiculous considering the age of the fans.”

She added: “It's all legal (shockingly) but so, so, so frustrating for fans who genuinely want to see the band perform.

“We expect sites to crash with the demand and some fans may be forced to turn to Viagogo and Seatwave and pay extortionate prices to see the boys... It’s such a shame that fans will miss out.”

Have you had a problem with being able to find tickets you can afford? Is no price too high to see 1D, or do you think agencies should be more considerate about the young fans who don’t have a great deal of cash to spend on concert tickets?

Oh look at us getting all serious and journo like.

We’d love to know your thoughts and experiences on the matter.
