Stormzy brands secondary ticket sites as ‘c**ts’ as tour sells out & new show added

Tickets to his debut headline tour sold out in just minutes

Stormzy has hit out at secondary ticketing websites as ‘c**ts’, after tickets to his first ever UK headline tour sold out in just minutes.

The ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ takes its name for the grime star’s forthcoming debut album, which is due for release on 24 February. So great was the demand that the grime hero managed to sell out both of his Brixton shows is less than seven minutes – forcing him to announce an extra show at the London venue on May 4 to cap off the tour.

“Fuck all these secondary ticket websites, please don’t buy tickets for more than face value,” he wrote on Twitter. “Sorry there isn’t more I can do, they’re cunts.”

This comes after You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi called for secondary ticket sites to be made illegal.

Last year Stormzy opened up about what to expect from his hotly-anticipated debut album – claiming that it will represent him as an ‘aggy little shit with a bone to pick’.

“So much has already happened and I’m still on album one,” he said at the time. “Maybe I should be on my second album now but I’m not, this is where I am. Most people’s first albums, they’re not talking about touring the world and winning awards. I was meant to still be in the ends with this one. So my album is a treasure in itself because it’s coming from such an unusual position as a debut.”
