Liam Gallagher’s Definitely Maybe Tour: Resale ticket prices for Manchester dates top £700 each

Resale tickets for Liam Gallagher’s Manchester tour dates are being advertised online for up to £730 each after this morning’s rapid sell-out.

Websites such as Viagogo and Stubhub are offering ticketless fans the chance to see the former Oasis frontman’s highly-anticipated Co-op Live gigs at eyewatering prices exceeding £700.

Gallagher’s Definitely Maybe Tour – celebrating the 30th anniversary of the era-defining album’s release – is set to visit Manchester in June 2024.

He will perform four times at the Co-op Live – which is adjacent to the Etihad Stadium – on June 15, 16, 27 and 28.

Tickets for the gigs were placed on general sale this morning at 9am, selling out rapidly as fans scrambled for the opportunity to see the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’.

The original price for a standing ticket was £88.50 and between £54.50 to £110.70 for those in seated areas.

Many of these appear to have been picked up by touts, with websites such as Viagogo and Stubhub immediately advertising available tickets at staggering prices.

The first two dates of Gallagher’s Manchester visit produced the most expensive prices, with the cheapest available admission being £211 and rising to £730.

The remaining Manchester gigs – including the tour’s final performance on June 28 – attracted advertisements ranging between £212 and £476 for each ticket.

Fans who missed out this morning have also taken to X – formerly Twitter – to berate official vendor Ticketmaster.

One commented that its website was “an absolute f*** shambles”, after being unsuccessful in their attempt to get tickets.

In another post, a disappointed follower said that the website lacked accessibility for autistic users – especially due to its “unclear and contradictory instructions”.

Many expressed their concern about “real fans” missing out due to the actions of touts.

Ticketmaster told Mancunian Matters: “There were no issues on site, (it was) simply a very popular show.”

When approached for comment, the Co-op Live said: “Co-op Live are committed to ensuring all tickets end up in the hands of genuine fans, and we support the wider live entertainment industry and our key ticketing partners in their continued efforts to achieve just that.”
