Scots singing star Gerry Cinnamon’s Dundee gig sold out within seconds –but tickets priced at more than £600 have appeared on resale websites.
The Glasgow sensation brings his live show to the Caird Hall on Thursday December 13 as part of a mini Scottish tour.
Tickets with a face value of less than £30 were snapped up within minutes through Ticketmaster, the official ticket partner from the event, on Friday.
Strict guidelines were issued for people attending the gig with promoters Live Nation demanding tickets should not be resold or transferred anywhere other than secure selling site Twickets.
But controversial resale site Viagogo advertised tickets for as much as £604.
Outraged fans hoping to secure briefs took to social media to voice their frustration.
Chelle Philbin wrote on Facebook: “Shocking, no tickets available since 8.59 this morning yet they’re on resale for £143, joke.”
Caroline Brown added: “Got two at 8.59 and as soon as click on next it came up ‘sorry it’s us not you’ and lost them.
“Absolutely appalling. Two browsers on two devices and nothing after that. Poor.”
It wasn’t just Dundonian fans who missed out on tickets, with his shows at Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom on December 18 and the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock the following day also selling out.
Elaine Summers added: “Nothing for Aberdeen on Ticketmaster but I can, of course, get for £101 a ticket elsewhere. Love Gerry but I’ll pass.”
Rebekah Jessica Lennon wrote: “I had two tickets in my basket for Kilmarnock and it kept asking to verify my card and then said I had used my card too many times.
“Then said it had reissued the tickets, the website is rubbish. Had been up since seven waiting.”
The new dates come after the cult hero sold out two concerts at the 02 Academy in Glasgow as well as two more at the world-famous Barrowlands.
Cinnamon, 32, began to build a name for himself in 2014 and has since sold out multiple shows across the country.
His debut album, Erratic Cinematic, was released in September last year and in July, thousands flocked to see him on the main stage of TRNSMT festival at Glasgow Green.
The singer has been a staunch critic of touts and companies selling briefs for inflated prices.
For his Dundee show, gig-goers were limited to a maximum of four tickets per person and per card.
The lead booker’s name will be printed on all tickets and that person must attend the show, showing photo identification. Anyone else using the tickets must attend with the lead booker.
A spokeswoman from Live Nation said: “Gerry’s gigs always prove popular and we wish him all the best. We would point anyone who is looking to still purchase tickets to the official re-sell website of Twickets. There, they will be able to buy from genuine people being sold for face value or less.”
Ticketmaster were asked for comment but hadn’t replied when the Tele went to press.
