Important Notice from Management about
the Sale of CREAM Reunion Tickets:

Cream, who have just announced four reunion concerts at The Royal Albert Hall in May, have encountered similar problems with internet touts recently experienced by U2. Cream’s promoters 3A have made the following statement:

“It is our belief that we have made all possible efforts to make tickets available to the public but at the same time to make it as difficult as possible for touts to get hold of tickets”

The measures the promoters took included restricting sales to a maximum of four tickets per person (the industry norm is 6) and refusing all group bookings.

Other measures included:
  • Restricting tickets sales to two authorised outlets: The Royal Albert Hall and Bookings Direct on 0870 143 2208 or online at

    Restricting sales to phone and internet only, thereby enabling cross referencing procedures to weed out multiple bookings using the same address or credit card.

    Monitoring all tickets being offered for sale on Ebay and similar sites and cancelling bookings where tickets are being offered for sale in this way.

The promoters believe and have observed that the majority of tickets on sale at exploitative prices have been purchased not by touts but by members of the public with a view to using one pair of tickets and selling the other pair on.

“It is our belief that the real culprits in this situation are internet sites who permit daily auctions with seemingly no checks on whether or not the sellers are authorised to sell them – or even whether they have the tickets in the first place. For example; not one ticket has yet been printed for any of the Cream shows and will not be until the checks mentioned above have been made, yet today there are 66 separate Cream ticket offers on EBay.”
