Snow Patrol’s front man Gary Lightbody has used Twitter to apologise to fans after many ended up paying extortionate prices for ticket to their show.
The band are set to play two intimate charity concerts on December 23 and as so many fans were dying to see them many paid huge prices to secure themselves a ticket.
After the band went to the efforts of keeping the price of the tickets very reasonable at £22.50, Lightbody was even more infuriated about the excessive prices.
Gary told his Twitter followers: “Sorry for those who had to resort from (sic) paying more than face value for the Belfast tickets. We do our best to make it hard for touts but… it’s impossible to stop altogether. We wanted a low ticket price (so) it wasn’t too hard on your pockets at Christmas. Touts f**k that idea right up.
“Northern Irish charities will make in excess of 30 grand from the show so that at least is something positive… as for folks who paid hundreds of pounds for a ticket I’m sure nothing I say is gonna make it sting any less. I’m just sorry this s**t happens at all. Loads of love to everyone. Bless your hearts.”
Snow Patrol will play two shows at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on 23 December with one in the afternoon and a second set in the evening.
Let’s hope it’s worth the huge price some of the dedicated fans had to pay!
