Bad Bunny fans denied entry to Mexico gig due to ticket fraud
Bad Bunny fans were turned away from his Mexico gig due to an "unprecedented number of fake tickets".
Even fans with legitimate tickets for Friday's (09.12.22) sold-out concert were'n't granted entry due a ticketing error, while there was also overcrowding issues at the 85,000 capacity Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.
A translated statement from Ticketmaster read: “The inconveniences at the entrances were a consequence of the high unprecedented number of fake tickets which caused crowding of people more than typical.
“The crowding caused confusion and complicated the entrance to the stadium, which led to people with legitimate tickets, not being allowed entry.”
Ticketmaster has vowed to prevent future fraudulent sales as it works with the consumer protection agency PROFEC.
