Liam Gallagher has responded to complaints from fans that a ticket pre-sale for his October tour sold out within minutes.

Fans who pre-ordered Gallagher’s debut solo album, ‘As You Were’, from his official website were promised priority access to tickets for the tour, with pre-sale tickets available yesterday morning. But many fans complained that said tickets had sold out before they had a chance to get any, while others said that they never even received the access codes required to buy them. Tickets also quickly appeared on resale sites, which didn’t help matters.

In response, Gallagher tweeted yesterday afternoon: “COOL IT OUT. We’re sorting it out. Stay cool brothers n sisters. As you were. More tickets [will be] coming back on sale. We are enforcing [a limit] per person and cancelling any multiple purchases”.

A spokesperson for Ticketmaster, which administered the pre-sale, said in a statement to the NME that everything had gone smoothly, but that “this was a very high demand event, and a simple case of demand outweighing supply”.

They added: “In no way did having a pre-sale code guarantee a ticket – it was a first come, first served basis”.

The spokesperson confirmed that there would be a further pre-sale today, before tickets go on general sale tomorrow at 10am.
