A warning has been released about tickets for Billy Joel's Dublin gig later this month, advising people not to buy tickets on secondary sellers or websites.

The Piano Man star will be returning to Ireland to play the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, June 23 in what will be his only Irish appearance in 2018.

Promoters for the event have now issued a statement informing fans of the dangers of buying tickets from secondary sources.

They said: "It has come to our attention that there are a number of tickets listed for sale on secondary websites. We strongly advise fans not to purchase tickets from any secondary sellers / websites.

"We cannot guarantee that tickets listed on these sites or on sale from secondary sellers are valid or actually exist.

"The only way to guarantee legitimate tickets is to purchase from the official ticket seller for this event Ticketmaster."

Doors for Joel's Aviva appearance open at 6.30pm. There will be no support act and he will take to the stage at 8pm.

A limited number of tickets for the gig are available on Ticketmaster.
