Harry Styles is certainly one of the most established musicians in the industry right now. Naturally, sites are bound to crash when tickets for his tours go on sale. However, fans are not too happy about that.
Styles is back to business and it seems his fans are a little too excited about it. According to The Sun, Harry’s fans rushed to get presale tickets for the Love On Tour concerts on the O2 Priority website and Ticketmaster. Unfortunately, both the sites buckled under the pressure.
Fans immediately took to Twitter to blast the websites for the crash. One user wrote: “Ticketmaster please fix your system, this is so unfair to the fans who woke up early.” “I tried for hours to get tickets today and was 145th in line when Ticketmaster crashed and I got pushed back to 28,000,” wrote another.
Responding to the outage, Ticketmaster told fans: “It seems Harry Styles has exceeded everyone’s expectations and ticket outlets are currently down under unprecedented demand.” “We’re working hard to rectify issues and will keep updating you here as we work to get things back up and running.” Pre-sale tickets for London and Manchester are already sold out as queues exceeding 50,000 waited for over 45 minutes.
Harry was set to begin his tour in April 2020, but the tour was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The singer then rescheduled his shows for 2021, but had to cancel AGAIN. This certainly explains the crashed website as fans cannot wait to see him on stage again.
The Love On Tour shows start in June 2022 at Glasgow’s Ibrox Stadium. The 32-city tour includes both rescheduled shows and a string of brand new stadium dates. Looks like it’s going to be a full house.
