Gigs and Tours appoints resale specialist Twickets as official partner
The UK’s leading concert promoter will offer face-value ticket resale across all its inventory
SJM Concerts’ market leading ticketing service Gigs and Tours are delighted to announce their partnership with ethical resale platform Twickets.
The move will ensure consumer-friendly resale for all tickets purchased through Gigsandtours.com, enabling users to easily list for sale via Twickets’ website or mobile app at no more than the price originally paid. This will offer a safer and more affordable alternative to the controversial secondary ticketing platforms that have historically dominated this market.
Launched in 2016, Twickets has provided a fan-friendly service for hundreds of leading musical artists, including Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons and Elton John, and helped revolutionise ticket resale at UK events and venues.
In those five years, the platform has been at the forefront of efforts to stop exploitative online ticket touting and attracts over 3 million unique visitors to its marketplace every year.
Matt Woolliscroft at SJM said: “We continue to strive to not only offer our customers an efficient and straightforward purchasing experience, but also help them when things don’t go to plan. Providing a safe, secure and easy way to resell tickets is best practice and yet another step Gigsandtours.com is taking to innovate and improve concert going.”
Twickets’ founder Richard Davies, said: “The UK is in the midst of a market shift away from rip-off secondary ticketing platforms and towards consumer-friendly resale services. I am proud Twickets is at the forefront of this change, and delighted we can bring our expertise in resale to such an important player in the UK music scene. Our goal is always to improve the ticket buying experience, fill venues and keep customers happy.”
