Ticket debacle leaves De Montfort Drake fan furious

By Rhys Shipman

Drake fans have been left outraged after ‘production issues’  meant hundreds of people having to change their standing area tickets to seated ones.

The Boy Meets World Tour, which begins on the 30th of January, in London at the O2 Arena, delivered the bad news that the standing size of the arena has had to be reduced late on Friday evening in an email to those who had been affected.

The tour has already produced controversy, as tickets released retailed at £110 caused fans to baulk at the fee to see the global superstar.

De Montfort University student, Matthew Sugden, who was one of the unfortunate fans to receive the email, told the Leicestershire Press that the decision was “an utter disgrace for fans, like me, who have been waiting for this tour for three months.”

The last time Drake toured in the UK was in a headline appearance at Wireless Festival in 2015 and the anticipation for his upcoming tour has been palpable in the last few weeks.

However, Mr Sugden still intends to attend the concert.

“I simply cannot miss this show that I have waited to see for so long”.

In a generous move, ticket suppliers for the tour have confirmed that they will refund all of the £110 paid by the concert goers in an attempt to repair the debacle of replacing tickets.

It is not yet known whether more dates for the UK will be affected by these production changes.

Nevertheless, all fans are encouraged to regularly check emails for information on their tour dates.
