Framlingham’s Ed Sheeran has introduced strict new rules for his 2018 tickets, in order to stop touts selling them and making a profit.
The Thinking Out Loud singer hosted a charity gig back in February for the Teenage Cancer Trust and the tickets were being resold on Viagogo for up to £5,000.
The Suffolk superstar does not want a repeat of that situation.
From now, if you attend one of his concerts you will need to take four types of ID, including your tickets, your booking confirmation, your credit card and a valid form of ID.
Without these you can be refused entry.
