Ticket Re-Sales For Ariana Grande’s ‘One Love Manchester’ Concert To Be Taken Down By eBay

  • Posted by beth on June 1, 2017

Tickets for Ariana Grandes benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester attack went on sale this morning.

The tribute gig – which will take place almost two weeks after the tragic incident – is completely sold out.

With thousands wanting to pay their respects to all those affected, it’s no surprise the tickets have been snapped up so quickly.

However, resale sites have already seen a surge in tickets being uploaded to their platforms, with some even being sold for ten times more than the original £40 ticket price.


But popular online shopping site eBay is taking action against the ticket touts who are trying to take advantage of the special event.

They have announced they will not allow re-sales of One Love Manchester tickets to be carried out on their site.

Taking to Twitter this afternoon, eBay explained,

Please do not attempt to sell One Love Manchester tickets on our site. We are actively removing all listings & restricting sellers who try to.

They continued,

This is completely against eBay rules. We are immediately removing all listings which attempt to profit unfairly from what happened.

All of those who were at Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman’ tour on the night of the awful attack have been promised free tickets to the show.

And while the rest of the tickets became available to the general public, with all proceeds going to the victims of the attack, eBay acknowledge this certainly isn’t the time for people to be making a profit.

Twitter has been quick to pick up on eBay’s respectful decision.

One user said, “Good to see non-resale policy on One Love Manchester tickets being policed.”

While another tweeter said those who are attempting to re-sell “should be ashamed”.

The One Love Manchester event takes place on Sunday, June 4 at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground.

Little Mix, Robbie Williams and Black Eyed Peas have been added to the star-studded lineup today.

They are joining big names such as Katy Perry, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Take That and Niall Horan who will take to the stage alongside Ariana Grande.

In a recent statement, the former Nickelodeon star made it clear she wants to do something to help her fans.

I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans.

She continued,

I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour and raise money for the victims and their families.

The show will be broadcast live on BBC One on Sunday evening.
