Robbie Williams tickets put directly on resale sites

Robbie Williams’s management team is placing tickets directly on to resale ticketing websites at higher prices, the Victoria Derbyshire show has found, reports BBC.
Ie:music put tickets for Williams’s 2017 tour on Get Me In and Seatwave – in one case for £65 more, before fees, than a similar ticket on Ticketmaster. The company has previously called on the government to take stronger action against resale sites.
Ie:music has not responded to repeated requests for a statement. Ticketmaster, which owns Get Me In and Seatwave, said the tickets – which it describes as “platinum” tickets – on the sites were “priced according to demand, in consultation with our clients, the event organisers”.
Tickets on Ticketmaster for seats on level one, block 126 – for Robbie Williams’s gig at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, on Friday 2 June 2017 – were found by the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme to be priced at £95, before fees.
But on Get Me In, for “platinum” seats on level one, block 125, at the same gig, seats were priced at £160 before fees – £65 more expensive. Because the tickets came straight from the artist’s management team, all the profit goes directly to them.
