On Saturday tickets for Beyonce went on sale and in the UK but at Manchester box office all hell broke lose.
Fans queued over night to get their hands on the tickets that went on sale on Saturday.
Doors were broken, children were being crushed and people were screaming in the stampede to get in first with one fan describing the whole experience as a “nightmare”.
A fan said at the even:
“I stayed in the tunnel outside the Arena to avoid being crushed when all hell broke loose at about 5am.
“Men were ripping open fire doors that were locked. Once opened, they fought to get through one side of a double door. Children were getting crushed and screaming. It was horrible. By far the worst night of my life.”
Another fan went on in saying to reporters:
“These men were smoking, they were so aggressive and more and more turned up into the night. They were pushing in and drinking. We were all so excited about seeing Beyonce – we love her – but this was more like a nightmare.”
Since Saturday a spokesperson for Manchester box office has released a statement saying:
“Since the Beyonce dates were announced two weeks ago we strongly advised all customers not to travel to the venue box office as tickets could not be guaranteed due to the anticipated high demand.
“Unfortunately, when we opened our doors at 5.30am what had been an orderly queue immediately stormed the box office windows causing a potential crush.
“Despite the best efforts of our stewards and security staff we had to involve British Transport Police in an attempt to restore order. Even then the safety of genuine fans could not be guaranteed and, following police advice, the box office remained closed.
“This information was communicated via our PA system and customers were redirected to the official website and phone lines for tickets.”
On Saturday morning tickets for Beyonce‘s new world tour went on sale in the UK and sold out in 10 minuets!
But that’s not is as some people have brought tickets to sell on Ebay and they are selling for £660 each!
Disappointed fans found out there were barely any tickets left on general sale following a rush of pre-sales with O2 Priority just 48 hours earlier.
The tickets went on sale at 9.30am yesterday morning and by 9.42am Ticktmaster posted on Twitter that the show was sold out.
This is what they tweeted:
And we’re out – All dates for @Beyonce now sold out. Very few tickets were made available for today’s general sale after busy pre-sales.’
