Ticket scandal at record concerts

Springsteen ticket fraud detention

The head of the ticket company Biljett Nu was detained Sunday on suspicion of selling fake tickets to Bruce Springsteen's concert in Gothenburg this past weekend. He is suspected of fraud or attempted fraud.

Several fans of the American singer reported the company to the police and the man was questioned last Friday.

According to Edip Samuelsson, the man's lawyer, a misunderstanding is behind the situation. The defendant had thought a closed section of the Ullevi stadium would be opened, he claims, but it never was.
