Well, the tickets went on sale at 9am and sold out within nanoseconds.

Already, On the Record readers are fuming.

Here’s Sharon:

I’ve been trying to buy tickets since 9am online and each time – ever since 9am, I’ve been told there were none left. How could 10,000 tickets possibly have been sold within no time at all?

And Paul:

The service charge for these tickets is an absolute disgrace. I just paid €24.60 EUR Service charge on 4 tickets. I heard Micheal Martin recently on the radio saying some comission or other was set up to look at prrcing charged by agencis but they would not actually be querying the service charge. It is a disgrace, a complete rip-off and must end.

And Ben:

Gone in less than two minutes? Anyone know how many were available?

And Enda:

Why can’t I get them on ticketmaster????????

They’re sold out, dude.

Anyone else not feeling the love this morning? Don’t talk to Joe, type to Jim. We do hope Win Butler’s and MCD’s bean-counters are chuffed to bits this morning.
