So I was made aware of a Paw Patrol Live UK Facebook page, that is selling tickets at £10 each for shows around the UK. Although something seems amiss! £10 a ticket seems very reasonable and the Facebook page does carry a mistake in the page name! "Paw Patrol Live Uk" and not "Paw Patrol Live UK" It doesn't seem to have any visible legit links/ties to Paw Patrol, that I can see! For most, this would would generally trigger people to question things!
Apparently comments on the page that ask questions regarding the legitimacy of this event, have been removed and in some cases members banned. One member even contacted two of the Aberdeen venues to check that the event was being held there and was told there were no such events to take place.
Now it may seem obvious to some, but it seems a lot of folks on the page are buying the tickets. I'd naturally assume that the likes of Ticketmaster or See Tickets would be selling the tickets, but apparently not at all.
If you have bought tickets or were going to, you should probably hang fire until there is confirmation of what is going on here.
Thanks to CY over on the Facebook page for bringing this to our attention. If we find out any more info or notice any changes, I'll update. Don't let this post put you off any future bookings with a legitimate event, just make sure you do checks before handing over any for of payment of details (You guys know this stuff already, I know)UPDATE:
A reply from the Legitimate Paw Patrol page
At this point we don't have a tour in the UK. It could be a different company that is working with Nick.. But we don't know about that one, where as we have been working with the Australian company to get PAW Patrol Live there. I'm not sure that's legitimate, but I'll see if anyone at my company has been in contact with getting a tour started in the UK.
It looks like the offending page has now been pulled from Facebook! :)UPDATE #3
Since writing this and sharing with members, the legit Paw patrol page has taken some action and the page has since been removed. They also mentioned it on their Facebook Page
