PEOPLE HAVE BEEN warned about fake tickets on sale for Ed Sheeran’s upcoming concerts at the 3Arena.

Sheeran is playing shows at the Dublin venue on 12 and 13 April. Tickets for the shows sold out within minutes.

Peter Aiken of Aiken Promotions has today warned people against getting stung by fraudulent tickets.

“We are once again cautioning fans not to purchase tickets via any secondary sellers or any unofficial source,” he said.

Aiken Promotions has advised Sheeran fans to not buy tickets from:

  • Any secondary site
  • Any third party
  • Unofficial selling sites
  • Individual sellers

In a statement, the company noted: “Purchasing from these sites or secondary sellers can result in huge financial loss and disappointment for fans who could potentially arrive at the venue having been sold counterfeit tickets, only to be refused entry without recourse.”
