Ed Sheeran fans hoping to see the singer perform in Leeds next year won't be issued with a ticket for the two Roundhay Park gigs.

The popstar and his promoters have announced that the outdoor shows on August 16 and 17 will be paperless in a bid to deter ticket touts and inflated resales.

This approach prevents touts selling tickets outside the venue and buyers putting tickets on resale websites at inflated prices.

Anyone who buys a ticket and decides they no longer wish to attend the gig can sell it at face value only to other fans from November 1.

Organisers of the tour have stated that resell site Viagogo is not an official vendor.

Buyers attempting to purchase large batches of tickets will be monitored and could have their transactions cancelled if their activity is deemed suspicious.
