As you may be aware, tickets for Ed Sheeran's forthcoming Dublin gigs on April 11th and 12th went on sale this morning.
Considering Sheeran sold out two nights at Croke Park in 2015 with relative ease, you can imagine that the two dates at the 13,000-capacity 3Arena would fly out in nanoseconds.
Indeed, that was the case - and as we saw with U2 at Croke Park, there were a lot of disgruntled heads on Twitter with many complaining about seeing the tickets, once again, on re-sale sites for inflated prices:

Ed sheeran could tour everyday for the rest of his life, I'd still probably be waiting in the virtual queue trying to get tickets #edsheeran

I didn't get any Ed Sheeran tickets but I'm an expert at not being a robot and finding street signs

So happy I got to see Ed Sheeran in Croke 2 years ago. Seems impossible to get them for 3arena.

Things are gonna be awkward when half of the 3arena is empty at the @edsheeran concert because the tickets ended up on seatwave for €200 ðŸ˜¤ðŸ˜¤

At least one person did manage to get tickets, though:
Woo-hoo just cheered myself up, managed to get 2 tickets for Ed Sheeran in the 3arena
