Tickets for the 56-year-old's comeback 22-show run at the Hammersmith Apollo sold out in less than 15 minutes, but demand far outweighed the number available.

On one auction site, one seller offering two tickets for £2,000 wrote: "Two good friends were going to fly in to see this but they've had to cancel their trip and we are looking to recoup their expenses for them."

Others for later dates were slightly cheaper with prices ranging from around £150 to £800.

"Spare ticket due to a series of unfortunate events! Seating, great view," another user wrote.

However, the original buyer’s name will appear on passes and photo ID will be required on the door. Some of the sellers offered to walk in with the buyers.

Original tickets went on sale in March priced at £49, £59, £75, £95 and £135 plus booking fees, depending on where fans wanted to sit.
