Stereophonics fans have been told to bring photo ID with them to get into Tuesday’s sell out concert at the Caird Hall in Dundee.
Promoters Regular Music said the move is intended to stop touts from reselling briefs.
Tickets for the concert sold out within half an hour of going on sale at the start of August.
They were soon being sold on websites such as StubHub and Viagogo
for as much as £200 – five times their face value.
A spokesman for Regular Music said the name of whoever purchased the ticket is printed on it and they must bring photo ID to ensure they, and whoever they bought tickets for, can get into the Caird Hall.
He said: “Regular Music would remind all those attending the concert on Tuesday to assist in the prevention of resale.
“In order to gain entry to the venue, ticket holders will be asked to present photo ID matching the name printed on their order.
“The name of the lead booker who placed the order is printed on each ticket for this concert.
“This means that each ticket purchaser must enter the concert at the same time as his or her guests. Remember also that backpacks, rucksacks and large bags will not be permitted. As with all major events in the UK, please allow additional time for access to the venue.”
A spokesperson for Leisure and Culture Dundee said: “This is a once in a lifetime chance for many fans to see Stereophonics live and it is really special to have one of the biggest bands on the planet visiting Dundee.
“We hope that everyone has an absolutely amazing night and we are looking forward to welcoming the band and fans before their London and New York City shows.”
The Stereophonics are one of the biggest bands in the UK and will release their 10th album, Scream Above the Sounds, in November.
Formed in Wales in 1992, they are the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2.
They’ve enjoyed 11 top 10 singles including the number one single Dakota.
Their hits collection, ‘Decade In The Sun’, sold 1.2 million copies in the UK while they sold over 150,000 tickets on their last 16 date UK arena tour.
