Tickets for the much anticipated Lizzo Dublin gig went on sale this morning and the majority of fans were left disappointed with tickets seemingly selling out in seconds.
Channelling boundless self-confidence through a downright earth-quaking voice, colourful persona, and undeniable star power, Lizzo struts into the spotlight and steps up with a whole lot of sass, spirit, and soul. Lizzo has risen to fame in recent months and having just played an iconic set in Glastonbury plus a stellar performance at the BET Awards, many were super excited for their chance to see the star live in Dublin.
The dates will see the ‘Juice’ and ‘Truth Hurts’ singer perform in 9 cities across Europe kicking off in Paris on November 4 and concluding in Copenhagen on November 19 with a Dublin date on November 10. She will be playing in the Olympia Theatre.
She is heading straight from Dublin to Manchester on November 11.
As the Dublin venue has holds 1300, a lot of the Lizzo tickets were snapped up during the presale. This left only a few hundred tickets for general sale this morning at 10am.
Fans took to Twitter to share their frustration making Lizzo and Ticketmaster the top two trends on Irish Twitter this morning.

Just landed in Dublin. The whiff of Lizzo sadness hits me when I step on the runway.
It's intense and I know my country is in pain right now.

One fan found resale tickets on a third party site for astronomical figures. A €35 ticket is currently for resale at over €1,000. Ticketmaster is also reselling tickets for over three times the original price.
If you have missed out on tickets for her Dublin dates, it might be a good opportunity to go on a city break! She is also playing Paris, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Cologne, Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Check Ticketmaster for details of ticket release dates for these shows.
Fingers crossed Lizzo can add another date for her Dublin fans.
