Singapore Post will no longer provide a physical outlet for live music fans to grab tickets from Ticketmaster for high-profile concerts. 

A SingPost spokesman told The Straits Times that the company was not a sales channel for any event tickets at the moment.

Ticketmaster told the newspaper that it will continue to provide ticket purchase options through its online platform, while exploring ways to “enhance the ticketing experience” for its customers.

Last year, SingPost offices saw hundreds of fans camping outside, queueing day and night, for tickets to see the likes of Taylor Swift and Coldplay.

Some Taylor Swift fans even started queueing two days in advance outside SingPost outlets to try and secure tickets in July last year, after failing to purchase their spot in the pre-sale.

In December, fans in Singapore reported a Ticketmaster glitch when attempting to purchase tickets online for J-pop duo Yoasobi. The fans claimed that they had found themselves logged into other fans’ Ticketmaster accounts when trying to pay for their own tickets.

At the time, Ticketmaster said that no sensitive information had been shared and that the temporary issue had been quickly identified and fixed.
