Zep fans warned off touted tickets

Don't even think about it

Led Zeppelin have warned that anyone buying illicit tickets for the band's O2 Arena gig will likely not get past the tout-busting "stringent security measures", the Daily Telegraph reports.

The tickets were allocated in a online ballot in which lucky winners were given a pass code enabling them to buy a couple of seats for £125 a pop. They then had to pick up an identifying, non-transferable wristband and will be expected to provide photo ID and the credit card used for the purchase to gain entry to the performance.

This hasn't, however, stopped several hopefuls punting tickets on eBay:

Zep spokesman Chris Goodman warned fans "not to believe the touts and said they would only have themselves to blame if they spent a fortune on tickets that failed to get them in".

He said: "Everybody has been warned that they cannot get through in any other way and if they choose to go on unofficial sites, that is the chance they take." ®
