The Arcade Fire’s Ebay tout warning

The Arcade Fire have told fans not to buy tickets from touts on eBay for their highly anticipated upcoming gigs taking place in London next month.

Tickets for the band’s previously reported five night residency in London sold out within minutes of going on sale on Friday, leading to a number of tickets being offered with a considerable mark up via the auction website. But the band have told fans not to buy from the online touts, adding that they will make more tickets available from official sources closer to the five dates and, if necessary, stage another gig to meet demand. Moreover, the band say they will cancel any tickets they know have been sold in that way.
In a statement issued over the weekend, the band said: “Due to the overwhelming demand for The Arcade Fire London shows, we would like to advise fans that we will be releasing some tickets for sale prior to doors opening for each London show. There will also be extra shows announced soon giving more people the opportunity to see the band perform. Please don’t encourage the touts. Wherever we have email addresses and ticket numbers for sellers we will cancel the tickets and put them back up for sale on show day. Please don’t buy from them and risk your tickets being cancelled.”
