Pairs of tickets were being sold for as much as over £5,000 earlier today after Ed Sheeran’s 2018 world tour went on sale at the weekend.

Tickets are still being sold for £550 each by online touts flogging seats for up to 10 times their face value.

The Suffolk star has previously urged fans to use official channels to buy resale tickets, and has teamed up with Twickets.

“For this tour I’ve teamed up with a company called Twickets – which is a safe, sensible and fair place for people to sell or buy any spare tickets they have for the shows,” Sheeran wrote on his website in February.

“Via Twickets, everything is at face value (or less), so you’re protected against fraud and hideous overpricing.”

See here for a list of his tour dates for 2018.

Face value tickets for his tour are between £55 and £88. Most of the shows were sold out on Saturday, but extra tour dates.

They include two extra dates at Wembley Stadium in London, Etihad Stadium in Manchester, Principality Stadium in Cardiff, and an extra show each at Hampden Park in Glasgow and St James’ Park in Newcastle.

Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster or Ed Sheeran’s offical website.

Tour organisers have previously said: “Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit.

“On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid unless they are bought and sold through Ed’s official resale partner, Twickets, which allows fan to fan sales at face value + booking fee only – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off.

“On all the stadium dates you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation and credit card, plus a valid form of ID or you will not be granted entry to the show.”
