Ticket sales for live events to be fully investigated following extortionate prices


The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission will begin an investigation into the sales of tickets for gigs and sporting events.

The investigation follows a huge outcry from the public, attempting to purchase tickets for live events. 

What is occurring more often is, the event is sold-out within seconds, yet remains ‘on-sale’ on official secondary sites at astronomical prices. 

The latest U2 gig announcement saw tickets rising to €1,000 within a day on sites such as Seatwave.ie 


Fans have had enough at forking-out for live events and are thouroughly behind the investigation. 

Ticketing services, promotors and Venues will all be investigated.
