Don't buy tickets from Viagogo

Don't buy tickets from Viagogo

We have heard of several instances recently of fans being ripped off by secondary ticketing sites like Viagogo. Go to the Grimsby Telegraph link below to read a salutary tale of what can happen if you buy tickets from unauthorised ticket merchants. And only buy tickets for PSB shows from outlets recommended by this site.

Paris cancellation

Paris cancellation

We regret that tonight's show at the Olympia in Paris has had to be cancelled because of technical issues which we have made every effort to resolve. Unfortunately it is not possible for the show to go ahead tonight. We will be announcing a rescheduled date as soon as possible for which tonight's tickets will be valid. We apologise for all the disappointment and inconvenience. Neil and Chris xx

It has been brought to our attention that several fans have bought tickets to our U.K. concerts from a secondary ticketing website called Ticket Selection and have not received the tickets they paid for. We advise fans never to buy tickets from secondary ticket dealers. If you have been defrauded by Ticket Selection or any other dealer, our U.K. promoter advises that you contact the police Action Fraud centre at the link below.
