Amazon's fledgling ticketing operation hasn't forgotten its customers in the UK, as it turns promoter for a one-off Robbie Williams gig at St John-at-Hackney
By IQ on 05 Dec 2016
As Amazon Tickets seemingly gears up for a launch in the US, back home the ticketing start-up has announced a last-minute London show by Robbie Williams, exclusively for its UK customers.
Ahead of next year’s European stadium tour, Williams (pictured) will play “old favourites alongside tracks from his new album, The Heavy Entertainment Show“, at the 1,400-cap. St John-at-Hackney in east London on 14 December.
Tickets are priced at £125 and go on sale at 9am tomorrow.
Interestingly, the 18th-century St John-at-Hackney – also still a working church – has an exclusive ticketing partnership with TicketWeb, with the Ticketmaster subsidiary supposedly becoming “the only advertised source for tickets” for the venue in April.
The Heavy Entertainment Show tour was last week named by Ticketmaster customers as their most-anticipated of 2017.
