Ed Sheeran fans have been warned that fake tickets for the singer’s forthcoming tour, which includes Belfast and Dublin, are being offered for sale.

The singer/songwriter is due to play Belfast’s Boucher Playing Fields, Dublin’s Phoenix Park, Pearse Stadium in Galway, and Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork in May 2018.

Fans queued or even camped out overnight in order to get their hands on coveted tickets.

However, Aiken Promotions has warned of the dangers of turning to secondary sellers.

While tickets from unofficial sources can also prove even more costly, some fans may end up rueing their purchase when they find out the tickets on offer do not even exist.

“Anyone can list something for sale on these sites and there is no guarantee that the seller actually has tickets,” a spokesperson for Aiken Promotions said.

“Some websites are offering e-tickets/print-at-home tickets. E-tickets/print-at-home tickets do not exist for ANY of the sold-out Ed Sheeran Irish tour dates.

“The tickets are not legitimate and must be avoided.”

Aiken Promotions added: “We once again caution fans to beware of fraudulent and invalid tickets and websites.

“We cannot guarantee that tickets listed on these sites or on sale from secondary sellers are valid or actually exist.”
