London, April 8 (ANI): Tickets for controversial comic Russell Brand's stand-up gig are being sold for as low as 2.50 pounds.
Seatwave, an online fan-to-fan ticket exchange operating in the European market, was still left with over 140 tickets for the upcoming show at London's 14,500 seat O2 Arena.
According to Joe Cohen, CEO of Seatwave, even prime seats were having a face value of 26.50 pounds.We've seen tickets being sold for as low as 2.50 pounds and many are selling below face value," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
However, promoters Phil McIntyre Entertainment insisted that the concert, which will be filmed for a DVD, was "technically a sell-out".
A staff member said: "We're very pleased with the way things are going.
"There's always a bit of confusion when a gig is being filmed - you're never sure what seats can be released until everything is sorted."
Brand has made the headlines with a series of controversial comments including his recent taunt at Justice Secretary Jack Straw on his Twitter page saying, "No wonder your son took drugs."
The 33-year-old had also landed in hot water with fellow prankster Jonathan Ross over the Andrew Sachs row, which led to his resignation from the BBC after he boasted about sleeping with the 78-year-old's granddaughter. (ANI)
