The reserve list opened to sell tickets for the Glastonbury festival seized from touts has now closed. Michael Eavis had announced that a list would be started for people unable to get tickets first time round. All 112,000 tickets sold out with 23 hours, but hundreds were almost immediately placed on sale at inflated prices on Ebay.
“Let me explain the situation – we did make a list because we thought we’d have about 500 tickets back,” Mr Eavis said. “We still have to retrieve them and make sure the whole legal thing is all above board, but we think we’ve got in the region of 500 tickets.” There will be no more than that, he insists. “We won’t have any more tickets available. The ones that we can retrieve have all been bagged. The list is now closed, I’m afraid.”
