Spice Girl hikes tout of or­der

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

SPICE Girls fans were fu­ri­ous af­ter tick­ets sold out in a minute, then ap­peared im­me­di­ately on tout sites for 200 times their face value.

And huge de­mand for tick­ets led the band to an­nounce four more dates on the six-city tour.

The re­selling site Vi­a­gogo had pages set up be­fore tick­ets went on sale with Tick­et­mas­ter at

10.30am yes­ter­day.

A minute later, £55 Manch­ester tick­ets were listed for up to £1,488, in­clud­ing a £388 book­ing fee.

One £70 Wem­b­ley ticket was on of­fer for a stag­ger­ing £14,850 with other seats go­ing for £500 to £2,000.

One scalper tweeted: “Sell­ing two Manch­ester

£1,650 each.” An­other wrote: “Two Lon­don Spice tix – £1,000 each no of­fers.”

An an­gry fan said: “Touts win again.”

Ticket re­selling sites are tech­ni­cally le­gal, al­though the com­pe­ti­tion watch­dog is in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
