Oh dear! 5 Seconds of Summer fans have been left FUMING this morning after not being able to purchase tickets for the bands forthcoming ‘Rock Out With Your Socks Out’ European Tour.
Last week, the guys announced that they were going on a “UK and Europe Tour” in 2015, and announced that tickets would go on sale soon. Soon, indeed, as the tickets went on sale to fans this morning, but there’s been a number of problems which have left fans pretty angry…
Last week, 5SOS urged their fans to sign up to their newsletter for further news about the tour. It was then announced that tickets would go on pre-sale to fans only this morning, Wednesday, July 9. Fans were sent a special code that they would have to use to gain access to the ticket purchasing process, but it turns out the code wasn’t correct for some fans, which left them in the dark about what to do next.
If fans haven’t managed to purchase tickets this morning, it isn’t the end of the world, as tickets will go on general sale on Friday (July 11) morning.
But, as we see with more or less every gig that goes on sale – there’s a mad rush, and thousands of fans are left disappointed as they just weren’t quick enough to be able to get tickets.
Some fans even likened the process to The Hunger Games, as it was a bit of a battle to be able to purchase a ticket or two for the forthcoming event.
The tour will kick off early next year, and will travel across Europe, before coming to an end in the UK.
As of June 2015, the tour will travel to Glasgow, before moving through to cities such as Newcastle, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, and Manchester, before coming to an end in London with a special two-night stop in the capital.
Tickets went on sale this morning at 10am, and it seems like the pre-sale allocation has already sold out as of writing this article (around 10:25am).
Another fan added: “trying to get 5sos tickets more like world war 3 (sic)”.
However, not all fans have been left disappointed, as thousands managed to get tickets for the stops across Europe.
“I GOT TICKETS!!!!! OMG SCREAMING IM GOING TO SEE 5SOS NEXT YEAR!!!!! #5sosRockOutWithYourSocksOutTour (sic),” One fan tweeted.
Did you manage to get tickets this morning? Were you a tad slow, or did the wrong pre-sale code hold you back? Let us know in the comments, below…
