  • Ticket verification measures in place at Ed Sheeran's concert

    Fans who buy tickets will have their names printed on the tickets, which will then be subjected to identification checks at the entrance of the National Stadium, where the English superstar will perform on April 26.

    Tickets, priced between $68 and $248, go on sale from today via Sports Hub Tix. LETTER

    Authorisation letters are required if fans are buying tickets for other people.

    A spokesman for organiser Lushington Entertainments told The New Paper: "The purchaser can put their names on multiple tickets if they are buying for their friends or family.

    "However, an authorisation letter must be produced to state that the ticket was purchased on behalf of someone else."

    The move was requested by Sheeran, who is known for taking an aggressive stance against ticket touts.

    The 27-year-old reportedly cancelled more than 10,000 tickets for his Manchester concert in May after his management identified purchases by known touts.

    Tickets listed for resale on sites like online ticket resale marketplace Viagogo were also cancelled.

    Fans who bought tickets at vastly inflated prices, often from these sites, were given assistance in claiming refunds and getting genuine tickets.

    More than £240,000 (S$427,000) were reportedly returned to fans who bought invalid tickets.
