Madonna fans scooped up hundreds of free tickets for her Murrayfield gig after a website glitch.
Tickets for the Queen of Pop’s first-ever Scottish show on Saturday were priced from £45 to £125 plus a booking fee.
But a link to the singer’s official Ticketmaster website was posted on Twitter and social networking sites just after 1pm yesterday that let users print off tickets for free.
Fans got access to “competition winner” tickets – and some couldn’t believe their luck as they snaffled up to eight tickets.
One prizewinner called ME tweeted: “Is this for real? Just got them in my email … I don’t wanna look like a fool when I get there and I cannot get in.” Eh added: “Says competition winner tickets. Am I going to be refused entry because I didn’t win a competition?”
Others believed that the competition winners had to be a child accompanied by an adult and asked: “I have to take an under 14-year-old with me?”
A Ticketmaster spokesman said: “From Ticketmaster’s point of view, the link is legitimate and those with access to the tickets will get into the concert at Murrayfield.”
They said the “winners” would get in whether or not they have a child in tow.
The firm claimed the freebies were given out after a competition link was made public due to human error.
Last night, Madge played to thousands at Hyde Park – including will.i.am, and some of the younger royals.
