Noel fans banned from gig for on­line tick­ets


Noel Gal­lagher fans were left hun­dreds of pounds out of pocket af­ter they were re­fused en­try to his gig in Aberdeen.

Many paid over the odds to get re­sale tick­ets on­line from web­site Vi­a­gogo, only to fall foul of ID rules when they ar­rived at the doors of the Aberdeen Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­fer­ence Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day.

In or­der to cut down on prof­i­teer­ing ticket touts, the singer’s man­age­ment printed the orig­i­nal pur­chaser’s name on ev­ery ticket and re­quired con­cert-go­ers to have match­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.
