JOHANNESBURG- Ed Sheeran fans around the country have flocked to get their tickets to see the superstar perform for the first time in South Africa. The ticket system online by Computicket left many of them completely frustrated, as their website crashed under the demand.
When tickets sales opened on Thursday morning and high ticket volumes were experienced and high technical issues being disgruntled, as Friday ticket sells did not get any easier for fans.
Fans took their frustration online and vented their anger at the delays.
According to TshiaLIVE who tried the booking process, they weren’t able to get past terms and conditions page before being place to the service’s main page.
