It comes as Robbie Williams and The Black Eyed Peas joined a line up that already including Grande, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Usher, Little Mix and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

In one post on Ebay, two tickets were being sold for $690AUD with the seller also asking for $1.10 to cover postage.

Online selling site eBay has said that any tickets were removed, saying a team were also performing ‘manual sweeps’ to delete the advertisements.

Ticketmaster has also warned that tickets will be given direct to fans, saying: “We are cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible.”

An eBay spokesman said: “This is completely against eBay rules.

“We are immediately removing any listing which attempts to profit unfairly from what happened, and the sellers’ accounts will be restricted.’’

The gig will take place on Sunday night, Manchester time.
