For anybody going to see Ed Sheeran in the UK during his stadium tour, you may need to be a little more prepared than usual.
New strict rules are in place, requiring attendees to bring a total of four forms of identification, as Sheeran attempts to fight back against touts.
Concertgoers who have resold tickets will not be allowed in, unless they came from Twickets.
In addition to your ticket, you will also need to bring your booking confirmation and credit card, as well as a form of ID such as your driver’s licence or passport.
“Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit,” Atlantic Records said in a statement.
“On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid unless they are bought and sold through Ed’s official resale partner, Twickets, which allows fan-to-fan sales at face value + booking fee only – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off.
“On all the stadium dates, you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation, and credit card, plus a valid form of ID, or you will not be granted entry to the show.”
Sheeran will be playing seven stadium dates in the UK next year, including in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
Tickets for these will go on sale on July 8.
The singer will also be back on TV screens soon with a guest appearance in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.
