The former One Direction star is about to drop his new album, Harry’s House. Those attending his One Night Only show in Brixton will exclusively hear the entire tracklist live before anyone else. However, tickets for the show sold out online in minutes with some reappearing online at massively inflated prices.

Some Harry Styles fans have been left in tears after his One Night Only show sold out within minutes with tickets now being put up for as much as £1,500 by resellers.

The singer revealed tracks As It Was, Late Night Talkings and Boyfriends from the new album during his Coachella set last month, but no fans has heard the full album.

Harry will make a special stop at Brixton’s O2 on May 24, with the exclusive performance seeing him sing the entire tracklist from new album Harry’s House, which releases on May 20.

O2 and American Express customers have been lucky enough to buy tickets earlier than others, while those who pre-ordered Harry’s House were also eligible to get pre-sale tickets via Ticketmaster.

The general sale started on May 11 at 10am, 24 hours after the pre-sale, MyLondon reports.

‘The price of six months’ rent’

Those who failed to get pre-sale tickets had to wake up extra early only to find they were still too late. Unlucky fans were left devastated as the tickets sold out within minutes.

However, a number of tickets then appeared to have been put back on sale for an unearthly price. Many disappointed fans took to Twitter to express their anger that some £50 tickets were being offered for resale at £1,500.

One angry fan tweeted: “I just want to know how people have the audacity to buy £50 concert tickets and then try to sell them (for more than) £1,000. Someone’s trying to get nearly £6,000 for ONE ticket to the Harry Styles One Night Only in London.”

Someone else wrote: “This makes me so mad. I was number 637 in the queue and didn’t even get a ticket *still crying*”

Fans will go extra mile (and cash) for their idol

Nonetheless, some fans eager to see their favourite artist perform his latest album for the first time live are willing to spend the extra amount – whatever it takes.

While some fans were begging for tickets, others criticised official ticket-selling points for not putting a limit on their purchases:

Viagogo explains ‘frenzy in demand’

A spokeswoman for Viagogo told HITC: “Last minute events of this nature tend to create a frenzy in demand and that impacts prices on marketplaces like viagogo. As evidenced by the four-minute sell out, Harry drives incredible demand. That said, if O2 Brixton is at full capacity for this event, the number of tickets listed on viagogo as of 11th May equates to just 3.7% of capacity. It’s entirely likely that the number of tickets available will fluctuate and that asking prices may settle. The on-sale window is always the peak moment of interest.

“On viagogo, prices are set by sellers – but ultimately they are determined by the fan demand in a free marketplace. Tickets that are unrealistically marked-up rarely sell at those prices, when they do not accurately reflect the true market demand.”

“Fans can be reassured that they are using a safe, secure and regulated marketplace in which all purchases are covered by the viagogo guarantee.”
