There are going to be more disappointed Beyonce fans than happy ones this afternoon, as the U.K dates for her tour sold out in 10 minutes. Pre-sale tickets on 02, alongside ticket touts, are to blame.

So what do you do if you want a precious ticket? Pay £650 on eBay, that’s what; some crafty touts have picked up some tickets with the explicit view to sell them for a hugely inflated price. Given Beyonce’s popularity, the £650 price-tag doesn’t strike us THAT insane. Although it is a little bit insane. By 9.42am (bearing in mind tickets went on sale at 9.30am) Ticketmaster UK informed customers they were already sold out. “And we're out - All dates for @Beyonce now sold out. Very few tickets were made available for today's general sale after busy pre-sales,” read their tweet. “All tickets for Beyonce have now sold out,” said an apologetic 02. “We understand your disappointment but sometimes demand is much higher than what is available.”

Some tickets on eBay are listed at £2k, but, the more realistc price of £445 for 2 tickets is what we’ve been seeing, which is still nearly 4x what they cost at list price, but far more affordable than some of the reported prices. We’re predicting Beyonce announces a few more U.K dates to appease her despondent fans, but given the high profile sell-out this tour has received, more touts might want a slice of the action.
