Peter Kay tour ticket sites jammed up as tickets go on sale

Sites selling Peter Kay tickets were jammed by customers trying to secure seats before they even went on sale.

Seetickets and Gigs and Tours both redirected customers to holding pages between 9.30am and 10am on Saturday morning, ahead of the general sale going live.

"Please bear with us. At the moment there are a lot of people trying to buy tickets, so we have put a queuing system in place, which is completely normal," read a message on Gigs and Tours.

Seetickets customers logging on were met with a similar message: "We are currently processing the maximum possible number of bookings we are able to handle at one time."

Ticketmaster put buyers into a "waiting room" which then redirects them into a queue from 10am.

There are bound to be disappointed fans who miss out on tickets for Peter's first tour since 2010. But there is a chance more dates could be added, as the comedian released additional shows in Manchester and Birmingham following demand for presales held earlier this week. As yet though, nothing has been confirmed.
