Having initially being listed between £45-£80 via respected ticket sellers, touts have now listed the same tickets at £100-800 for gigs in Manchester, Dublin and Newcastle. Astonishingly, a level one ticket for London’s O2 Arena in September would set fans back £4,840.
One fan tweeted: “F****** infuriates me that I haven’t been able to get hold of Arctic Monkeys tickets yet there’s selfish c**** who’ve got them selling them for £500+ touts are the worst people on the planet.”
Another wrote: “So #ArcticMonkeys that Tout ban hasn’t really worked has it”.
The huge demand for tickets and the boys’ expensive tastes means that the addition of new dates was a no-brainer, the added dates will make many fans very, very happy indeed. New dates are in London, Birmingham, Dublin and Newcastle.
