Queen + Adam Lambert have teamed up with Twickets to offer face value resale for their upcoming UK and Ireland tour.
Tickets sold out in less than an hour of going on sale last month and are being resold secondaries for up to £764, approximately 10 times their face value. The partnership aims to help fans buy and sell spare tickets securely, without being ripped off.
Twickets’ founder Richard Davies said: “It’s an honour to work with one of the greatest rock bands of all time and see them go the extra mile for their fans, protecting them from the extortionate secondary prices and ticket touting.
"Working together, we can ensure that Queen + Adam Lambert’s fans are given a safe place to buy secondary tickets at face value, whilst also setting a precedent for other legendary bands to follow.”
Paul Roberts, MD at Phil McIntyre Entertainments, Queen + Adam Lambert's UK promoters and European agency, added “We are delighted to be partnering with Twickets.”
Queen's + Adam Lambert's websites and socials will now direct fans to a specially created landing page, or to the Twickets mobile app.
The deal marks the latest in a run of major partnerships for Twickets. The fan-to-fan face-value reseller recently teamed up with Ed Sheeran on his UK dates, and Adele on her Wembley shows when they were released towards the end of last year.
