Ed Sheeran’s promoter, Kilimanjaro Live, is being sued by Viagogo, the ticket reseller, for allegedly defrauding fans.

Viagogo has issued legal proceedings against Kilimanjaro Live over the company’s decision to cancel thousands of tickets for Sheeran’s concerts which were purchased through the resale site. Viagogo claims that Stuart Galbraith’s company set up fake Viagogo stalls during Sheeran’s 2017 tour, where it voided genuine tickets and told fans to buy new ones.

Viagogo said it would provide “incontrovertible photographic and filmed evidence” to a court in Germany, where it filed its claim.

A spokesperson for Kilimanjaro Live said the claims were “ludicrous, laughable and most importantly totally false”.
