Unless you’ve been living under a particularly secluded rock, you can’t have failed to notice that Take That has announced a 2011 UK tour and tickets went on sale today.
Predictably, all ticket agents have struggled under the “unprecedented demand”. TicketMaster has offloaded a bit of the blame on to UK phone networks in a statement published on its Facebook page:
“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.”
TicketMaster says that it is working to resolve the issues, so if you’re trying to get your mitts on the hottest Samsung-sponsored ticket in town, then keep the faith and keep hitting redial. [Image credit]
