Re-sales of bulk-bought Bruce Springsteen tickets reach €1,200 a head as official channels run dry
thinkSPAIN , Wednesday, March 9, 2016

WEBSITES selling tickets for Bruce 'The Boss' Springsteen's Madrid concert ground to a halt yesterday (Tuesday) within minutes of the box office opening at 10.00hrs.

Ticketmaster had to open a second web portal, and and the websites for the FNAC, Carrefour and Halcón Viajes say their own servers went down briefly because of the sheer volume of online traffic.

Numerous fans have complained that although they have been trying since yesterday morning to get their hands on tickets, these are already now freely available on unauthorised websites at between three and 15 times the price.

The official cost of tickets is around €80, but those who bought them in bulk to re-sell have them on sale for between €156 and €1,200.

One of the most-checked websites among fans who have not managed to get a ticket via the official channels is, which forms part of the same group as Ticketmaster but is selling places at vastly higher prices – sparking numerous complaints on social networks and demands for explanations.

Bruce Springsteen and The E-Street Band are on stage on May 21 at Real Madrid FC's Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
