Google criticized over Ed Sheeran ticket adverts
    2017-July-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ED SHEERAN’S promoter has said Google must do more to stop secondary ticket sales for the singer’s gigs.

Stuart Galbraith called for the change after Google adverts pointed fans towards secondary site Viagogo, where tickets for Ed Sheeran’s tour were being sold at inflated prices.

“Google needs to bow to pressure and stop taking money for tickets which are sold on the secondary market,” he said.

Google said it had a set of strict policies on which ads it allows.

Tickets for Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” tour started appearing on Viagogo within minutes of them being released.

“Ed and I have a strong aversion to secondary ticketing,” Galbraith told BBC Radio 4. “We put up lots of measures to try and stop the secondary ticketing market when his tour tickets came out Saturday. The vast majority of secondary sites adhered to our threats of prosecution but Viagogo did not.”

Viagogo has not yet made a response.

Ed Sheeran previously warned that anyone who bought from secondary ticketing sites would not be allowed into his gigs.

Galbraith said: “If we can identify that those tickets have been bought on the secondary market then there’s every chance their admission will be refused.” (SD-Agencies)
