Bad Bunny Fans Denied Concert Entry Due To Ticket Fraud

Due to an “unprecedented number of fake tickets,” Bad Bunny fans were turned away from his sold-out Mexico City on Friday (12.09.) And due to a ticketing error fans with legitimate passes were denied entry, along with overcrowding issues at the 85,000 capacity Estadio Azteca.

In a translated statement about the debacle, Ticketmaster wrote “The inconveniences at the entrances were a consequence of the high unprecedented number of fake tickets which caused crowding of people more than typical.” “The crowding caused confusion and complicated the entrance to the stadium, which led to people with legitimate tickets, not being allowed entry.”

Several weeks after the sales giant suffered massive Taylor Swift ticket issues, Ticketmaster has vowed to prevent future fraudulent sales as it works with the consumer protection agency PROFEC.

With more than 18,000,000,000 streams, Bad Bunny (born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) is the most-streamed artist globally for a record breaking third consecutive year and the Puerto Rican superstar’s album ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ topped the albums list.

Taylor Swift is in second place for the global artist list, and is #1 in the United Kingdom thanks to her new album ‘Midnights’ that helped propel her to 805 million streams in the England alone, followed by Drake, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles and Kanye West in the Top 5.

Globally, Bunny and Swift are followed by Drake, The Weekend and BTS, with Ed and Harry just missing out in sixth and seventh place, as Styles’ mega-hit ‘As It Was’ was named Spotify’s most streamed song of 2022. The former One Direction member sits atop of the streaming platform’s rankings for listeners around the world, with his smash single hitting close to 1.6 billion global streams.
