Concert ticket prices

Can someone explain ticket prices for me please, I'm looking to purchase tickets for Adele Hyde Park 2022, Ticketmaster has sold out, Google searches gives numerous vendors, having looked at Viagogo, tickets selling for £566.00 per ticket, alongside the price of the ticket it has "FV" face value = £97.25,

I'm confused when it says "not for resale"

If the tickets have been purchased by Viagogo at FV £97.25, and Viagogo are reselling at £566.00, will the tickets be invalid? (this is a birthday present, don't want to end up being refused entry)

    Potentially the tickets will be invalid.  I think it was Ed Sheeran who was one of the first to come out and say that tickets purchased through resellers would not be accepted.  Some companies stopped their activities, but others didn't.  Very much a case of buyer beware.
    From a purely personal point of view, I wouldn't pay £500 over face value no matter who was performing.
  • Thanks for the info, I've decided not to pursue purchasing the tickets
