Shock over Spice Girls ticket prices

Sunday Sun - - News -

SPICE Girls tick­ets have ap­peared on ticket re-sell­ing web­site Vi­a­gogo – for more than twice the face value.

Fans were left frus­trated yes­ter­day when Tick­et­mas­ter crashed due to huge de­mand.

Tick­ets went on sale at 10.30am and within half an hour were listed on Vi­a­gogo – some cost­ing up to £208 for the North East date.

The orig­i­nal face value cost for a stand­ing ticket at Sun­der­land’s Sta­dium of Light con­cert on Thurs­day, June 6 next year was £77.

Ear­lier in the day, the Spice Girls added two more dates to their re­union tour af­ter fans vented their frus­tra­tion as they strug­gled to buy tick­ets.

The group, who will go back on the road to­gether next year with­out Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, an­nounced they will play ex­tra dates at Lon­don’s Wem­b­ley Sta­dium and Manch­ester.
