Ed Sheeran’s Dubai concert has sold out in record time

It seems Dubai’s rife with Sheeran-fever, as organisers behind his concert 117Live announced that pre-sale tickets across all categories have completely sold out.

“In my 17 years of staging shows in the Middle East I have never seen such a fantastic pre-registration result for any show nor the unprecedented pre-sale numbers we have experienced today,” said Thomas Oveson, CEO of 117Live.

Fans struggled to secure tickets via the Dubai Calendar app, as it was overloaded with requests from thousands of desperate fans.

However, if you didn’t manage to snag a ticket, all is not lost.

117Live have announced that a very limited number of tickets will go on sale to the general public from Thursday, May 11 at 10am.

If you’re looking to grab some of the extra tickets, they’ll be on sale directly from 117Live’s website. 

The concert will take place on November 23 2017 at the Autism Rocks Arena next to Dubai Outlet Mall.
