Lethbridge Herald - - MOVIES - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS — AT­LANTA

Twick­ets, a Europe-based face-value ticket plat­form sup­ported by sev­eral pop­u­lar mu­sic artists in­clud­ing Adele and Ed Sheeran, was launched Wednesday in the United States.

Founder Richard Davies said fans will be able to buy and sell spare tick­ets at face value or less for con­certs and live events at Twick­ets USA.

“We’re look­ing to pro­vide an al­ter­na­tive to gen­uine fans that want to look out for other fans po­ten­tially and not gain a sub­stan­tial profit,” Davies said. “We’re not plan­ning to be the so­lu­tion to scalp­ing.

“Fans de­serve a choice. We don’t want them to get ripped off.”

Twick­ets, which was launched in the United King­dom in 2015, has part­nered with Adele, Sheeran, Mum­ford & Sons and Queen.
