Take That: more info regarding tickets

30 October 2010 No Comment

Due to totally unprecedented demand, all ticket agents across the UK, including Ticketmaster, struggled to cope with the sheer volume of people logging onto websites to buy Take That tickets. Across the day Ticketmaster alone has so far received over 20m page views from visitors arriving on the site, far in excess of that experienced for Michael Jackson last March. The sheer volume of fans also created problems for the UK telephone network.

We had planned for the demand for Take That tickets to potentially exceed anything we’d ever experienced before at Ticketmaster, and believed that we would be able to respond, but we have undoubtedly seen an unparalleled level of demand today and whilst hundreds and thousands of tickets have been sold we know that many of our consumers have experienced frustrating delays in securing their tickets.

We apologise for these problems and acknowledge that this is far from the experience we usually deliver. We can only ask that fans trying to secure tickets keep trying online or through our call centre, as tickets are still available and extra dates have been added since 9am, in response to this incredible demand for next summer’s concerts.

Due to totally unprecedented demand this morning, all ticket agents have struggled to cope with the number of people logging on to try and buy Take That tickets.

The technology available has not been able to keep up with demand however all ticket agents are confident they will be able to process all enquiries so are asking fans to keep trying.

Please see this Official Statement from Ticketmaster below:

“Due to totally unprecedented demand all ticket agents across the UK, including Ticketmaster, are struggling to cope with the sheer volume of people logging on to try and buy Take That tickets. The knock-on effect is also creating problems for the UK telephone network, it’s been confirmed that it’s also straining to cope and that call volume is at least twice that of the Michael Jackson on sale last March. We are working to resolve the issues and we are confident that fans will be able to purchase tickets and we ask that they keep trying.”
