Hot Press readers are angered by the number of Arcade Fire tickets that fell into the wrong hands.
“I got up extra early the morning that the Arcade Fire tickets went on sale and was gutted when I didn’t get tickets as they’re my favourite band. I definitely agree that the number of tickets should be limited to 2 and that the people who have registered the band in their ‘favourite bands’ to get ticket alerts prior to any gigs should be prioritised.”
“There is no way I would pay over face value no matter how bad I wanted to see a band. It maintains a cycle which ruins it for everyone. If the band care about genuine fans, surely they have the power to do something about this?”
“Just wanted to send a mail to you about how annoyed I am with the whole Ticketmaster/Arcade Fire shambles. I was there at 9am trying online but no luck. The fact that so many tickets are now on sale on eBay is incredibly annoying.”
