Live Nation Philippines warns over illegal ticket sales

Newly launched Live Nation Philippines has said on Twitter that it will be taking legal action over the unauthorised selling of tickets for an upcoming concert in Manila. 

K-pop band Seventeen are set to play two concerts in Manila at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on October 8 and 9, and the promoter has said that is has received reports of unauthorised ticket sales. 

In a statement on Twitter, Live Nation Philippines said: “It is unfortunate that we have received confirmed reports of unauthorised and therefore illegal selling of tickets for the ‘Seventeen World Tour – Be The Sun’ concert. 

“Live Nation Philippines (LNPH) does not authorise anyone other than our official ticketing outlets for the selling of tickets. LNPH shall take all appropriate legal actions against a certain Shai Solita and her cohorts who are behind these illegal acts and all involved that bring disrepute to LNPH. You are sternly warned.”

The promoter did not reveal the legal actions being taken or how the illegal tickets entered the market, as the pre-sale for the concerts does not take place until July 12 and general passes will not be available until two days later. Live Nation Philippines did not say where the tickets were being sold.

The Asian leg of the ‘Be The Sun’ tour from Seventeen will begin in Indonesia in September, before heading to Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore.
