The cheapest tickets for Sir Tom Jones’ gig in Dundee’s Slessor Gardens could be sold out within minutes of being made available – with briefs already appearing on resale sites.
The Welsh legend will belt out classics such as She’s A Lady, Delilah, and What’s New Pussycat when he takes to the stage on Saturday July 27.
Within a minute of going on sale online today, Bronze standing tickets were showing as “unavailable” on ticketing site Ticketmaster.
The briefs, which grant access to the Slessor Gardens space towards the rear, are on sale for £45.43.
However, they are already on resale site Viagogo for more than twice their face value, at £108 each – including an eye-watering £28 booking fee on each ticket but not an unspecified “delivery fee”.
This is despite a notice on Viagogo – hidden away in a “more information” link at the top of the page – which informs would-be buyers: “Resale of tickets is prohibited for this event.”
Silver tickets which get fans closer to the stage are £50.40 while Gold tickets, giving fans the best view and the closest access to the Welsh crooner, are £67.20 a pop.
The Tele was able to reserve Silver tickets on Ticketmaster – but when we tried to buy Gold or Bronze briefs, we were told by the website: “We couldn’t find the tickets you searched for.”
Availability could vary throughout the morning as orders are made and cancelled. Ticketmaster gives buyers a window of two minutes and 50 seconds to complete their payment after securing briefs.
