When it comes to gifts, you generally can't go wrong with concert tickets. right?
Well, that tends to be the case…unless the tickets you're splashing out on are for any of Ed Sheeran's upcoming dates in Ireland, that is.
You see, due to Ed's strict stance on ticket touting, the singer and his team have implemented a rule which states that the person who purchased the tickets must be in attendance on the specified date too.
In order to gain entrance to the concert, the ticketholder will need to provide booking confirmation of the tickets, the credit card on which they were purchased in addition to a valid form of ID.
In order to avoid any confusion or disappointment on this front, Ticketmaster have provided the public with eight rules.
1. The name on the card used to purchase tickets will be the name printed on the tickets.
2. The person whose card is used to book the tickets (lead booker) must be in attendance on the night of the show.
3. The lead booker must bring ID and card used to book in order for them and the rest of their party to gain entry.
4. All members of one party must enter as a group. Failure to do so will result in some party members not being admitted.
5. Tickets cannot be purchased as a gift.
6. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online at Ticketmaster.ie. Tickets can be purchased with cash at an outlet or credit/debit card. If purchasing at an outlet you will be required to present ID. Please ensure the name on your ticket corresponds with your ID. You must retain your receipt in order to gain entry.
7. Tickets limited to 4 per purchase.
8. Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult 18+. This applies for both standing and seating. Parents/guardians intending to bring young children are advised to purchase seating tickets.
And in case you're still interested, tickets go on sale July 8 at 9am.
Yesterday the world celebrated as Queen B turned 35 but while most of us confined our celebrations to binging on Lemonade and sharing Beyoncé GIFs with our mates, Kelly Rowland surprised her BFF with a very special gift.
In a bid to prolong Bey’s birthday weekend, the singer’s former bandmate and long-time friend decided to join her in Philadelphia for the Made in America festival and Kelly did not arrive to the party empty handed.
In an interview with E! News the X Factor judge revealed that she would be gifting the Sorry singer with diamonds to mark the occasion.
She said: “We are all going to be celebrating this festival and Beyoncé’s birthday.”
“We are all going to be together. I am getting ready to see her now.”
And when asked what she got the girl who has everything, Kelly replied: “Well, diamonds are a girl’s best friend…I got her diamonds.”
So if you’ve never before thought of sending Ms Rowland a friend request, now would probably be a good time to do it.
As an international superstar you’d imagine Liam Payne must be pretty hard to surprise in the present department. But thanks to some super thoughtful One D fans, the singer is about to receive a gift with a difference.
When faced with the challenge of buying for the person who appears to have everything, a group of Liam’s resourceful followers decided to set up a fundraising campaign to mark the singer’s upcoming 23rd birthday.
Using a Just Giving page, the fans who “would like to give back” are using the popstar’s birthday to raise money for the Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton – a community centre in Liam’s hometown.
The page reads: “Liam Payne has done so much for fans so we the fans would like to give back.”
“In honour of his 23rd birthday, we are collecting donations for the Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton, a purpose-built facility for the city's young people aged 8-19 (and up to 25 for those with disabilities).”
Cheryl’s boyfriend eventually heard about the fans’ plan through his mother and took to Instagram to express his gratitude.
Cheryl set up her foundation to help underprivileged young people living in the North East of England.
Along with the Prince's Trust, Cheryl's Trust is in the middle of building a state-of-the-art youth centre which will help the region’s most vunerable teens and young adults, including those facing drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, mental health problems and those leaving care.
Christmas presents can be tricky business. And there's only so many years you can buy the same kind of things.
Are you tired of getting your mum the same old gift for Christmas? Because we are. You've bought her a million knitted jumpers through the years and there's only so many 'I Love Mum' mugs you can find.
We feel your pain, because buying for your mother is one of the hardest presents to decide on. But fear not! As we have a totally cool pressie that she will LOVE this year.
