    Help me!

    I recently brought two tickets from Viagogo for the spice girls concert. Ticketmaster had crashed so I went to Viagogo as they were the first on google search. They must be trustworthy right?
    I brought my tickets, for all in £310 quid somewhere in the back of the stadium.
    The asvertising makes you feel pressured so I clicked confirm as I had to go to this no matter what! (We are die hard fans)

    I never buy tickets but something niggled at my to do a bit of googling. A little while after calling her with the good news and having a teary moment knowing I would see my childhood idols, I went into ticketmaster to see what was left. To my horror premium seats near the front were the same price!!!!! I then googled viagogo and then I really started to feel awful as they have horror stories about tickets being cancelled or not turning up, and worse not being let in!!

    After a lot of panicking, I bit the bullet and got the front row seats from ticket master which came to 375 all in. I couldnít risk travelling to Manchester and being in an awful situation. I just wonít eat the rest of this month.

    Now I need to know if there is anything I can do to not be 600+ quid down.

    I want to rid myself of viagogo and either cancel my tickets or resell them.
    Do I have to sell the tickets on Viagogo? Because that looks like I could be even worse off!
    Do I have a leg to stand on to cancel them if I fight them in being misleading and pressurising?

    Any advice Iíd be so grateful.
