Over 200 Fans Cheated With Fake Tickets At Ed Sheeran

Posted at November 20th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, News

Ed Sheeran just hosted a massive concert in Mumbai this past Sunday and while a lot of people had an amazing experience, some unlucky fans were left stranded outside as they’d purchased fake tickets. Over 200 people were denied entry as they’d paid upto INR 10,000 to a third party. Someone called Vishnu Poddar had apparently collected money from a lot of individuals and is now absconding.

 

On speaking on how the events unfolded, one person told Republic TV,

“We were issued e-tickets and told to exchange the e-ticket at the counter either on the day of the concert or on the day before. We have been following up with them for the last week but since yesterday we have been unable to reach them.”

Issues like this have arisen at many large scale concerts, and the only way to avoid being scammed is to go through official ticketing channels or very trusted sources only.

Another fan said,

“I bought five tickets in the month of August and paid Rs 8,000 per ticket.”

There probably won’t be a solution to this, but we urge you to be careful about who you’re buying passes from.

For the many many fans who attended though, it was a splendid show, and we’ll be putting up a review and images soon!
