If you couldn’t get a Spice Girl ticket, join the queue. This morning was utter chaos for Spice Girls fans up and down the country.
As the gig went on sale at 9 am, hundreds of messages appeared on social media with the same question about Ticketmaster after fans found it near impossible to secure their tickets online.
Why is Ticketmaster an assbag. #SpiceGirls

Why do I bother sitting frantically on my laptop and phone at 8:59am in hope to get tickets for big artists. I’m just that panicked disappointed idiot every time. I haaaate this method. #SpiceGirls @Ticketmaster

While other fans experienced similar technical difficulties, they managed to snag their tickets to the biggest girl power event of the decade:
Spice up your life! @spicegirls yaasssss here I come! Emotional to say the least! All the singing into my hairbrush to these when I was 4 years old! Worth all the Ticketmaster drama! Gold circle I had to get the best for these legends! #spicegirls #SpiceGirlsDublin pic.twitter.com/7NqC08tzN9

The Spice Girls will be joining Westlife as the only two acts to perform in Croke Park next year. It’s the first time in history that a girl band will perform at Croke Park.
