'Are you serious?' Paul McCartney fans fume at £600 tickets as queue

Friday, June 21, 2024

This morning, tickets for Paul McCartney's hotly anticipated Manchester and London shows went on sale.

The Beatles legend is bringing his acclaimed Got Back tour to the city's Co-op Live later this year on Saturday, December 14 and Sunday , December 15. He will also perform at The O2 in London on Wednesday, December 18 and Thursday, December 19, as part of the only four UK dates announced.

The tour - the first time he will play in Manchester in 13 years - follows his Glastonbury headline set back in 2022. He also last performed in London six years ago.

Announced last week, a number of fans were lucky enough to get Co-op member or O2 Priority codes for access to Wednesday's pre-sale (June 19). But the pre-sale was met with concerns from fans who struggled to get through the online booking system in time to get tickets.

Today's general sale has also been met with high demand with fans expressing disappointment and shock at the price of tickets, with some options costing up to £600 for the UK shows. Fans have also reported getting 'stuck' in the online queues for tickets.
