Scottish P!nk fans fuming after failing to get tickets for Glasgow gig at Hampden as Ticketmaster site locks them out
P!NK fans have been left furious after missing out on tickets for the singer’s Glasgow show when they failed to get through on Ticketmaster’s website.
Briefs were made available this morning for the What About Us superstar’s highly-anticipated gig at Hampden Park next June.

Frustrated fans were met with error messages when trying to buy tickets
The singer announced a second Glasgow date at the weekend after “phenomenal” demand for her Beautiful Trauma tour.
But many punters were met with error messages when they logged on and were left wondering why they were locked out.
Ticketmaster say there were no issues with the site other than it being flooded with expectant fans.
And gutted fans took to social media to express their dismay at failing to get their hands on gold-dust tickets.
Tierna Kehoe posted an error message and said: “@TicketmasterCS Why won’t your website work for Pink Tickets? Doing this since before 9 this morning it’s coming up for Dublin and Glasgow.”
Colin Daniels said: “@TicketmasterUk shambles. Pink tickets for Glasgow gone in two minutes yet again real fans left out.”
Tickets are already being flogged on official resale site Stub Hub for £340
While greedy re-sellers are asking for £417 on ViaGoGo
A Twitter user named Shannon said: “Been trying to book three tickets to see Pink at Glasgow since 10 from Ticketmaster. The absolute joke of it kept saying sorry something went wrong with your tickets. Now I can’t get them anymore. F****** disgrace of a website.”
Celia Castresana said: “Can’t buy tickets for Pink concert in Glasgow. What is going on? It gives error every time and I don’t want to miss this opportunity.”

And another user named Kirsten added: “Got through to pay for Pink tickets at Glasgow three times and then an ‘error occurred’. Ticketmaster are a f****** joke.”
After tickets run out on Ticketmaster, scores have been made available on resell sites at more than four times the face value.
Official reseller StubHub have them up on their site at £340, but Viagogo are flogging them for £417.
And punters who missed out were further enraged at seeing tickets available at such a mark-up.
Natalee Gray said: “Hope Pink follows Ed Sheeran and makes everyone show proof of purchase and ID when they go through Hampden gates. Disgusting that tickets worth £90 are now on Stub Hub for £345 each. Fans outraged.”

A spokeswoman for Ticketmaster UK said: “As one of the most popular artists in the world, the demand for P!nk tickets was always going to be huge. That was certainly the case this morning.
“There are lots of happy fans out there but, unfortunately, there will always be some who miss out when events are this popular. We always recommend keeping an eye on our social media channels in case we get any extra tickets.”
A spokesperson for Viagogo said: “Viagogo is a marketplace and doesn’t buy or sell tickets. Viagogo provides a platform for third party sellers to sell tickets to event goers.
“Viagogo does not set ticket prices, sellers set their own prices, which may be above or below the original face value.
“All tickets sold on viagogo’s platform are genuine tickets that have been sold on by the original ticket purchaser in good faith.”
We told during the summer how Ed Sheeran fans were left raging after being locked out of his gigs after buying tickets from resale site ViaGoGo.
And it was the same story for Noel Gallagher fans in April.
