"HOW MUCH? Not very humble is it mate."
Many fans were left disappointed after tickets seemingly sold out within seconds, with many claiming that standing tickets had sold out before the 9AM release.
Users also complained that ticket touting was to blame after standing tickets soon began appearing on secondary ticketing websites with a significantly higher price tag.
Honestly would have a better chance bumping into Kendrick Lamar and asking him for tickets than getting tickets for him on Ticketmaster— Darragh Murphy (@Doruhty) 4 October 2017
Ticketmaster is an absolute joke. Kendrick Lamar tickets go on sale at 9am, sold out by 9am. Are you serious— Mr Lükas (@MrAaronT) 6 October 2017
Was on ticketmaster at 8.59 when the Kendrick Lamar tickets came out and apparently there was no standing tickets left pic.twitter.com/62vhBfzAWF— India Dhami (@IndiaDhami) 6 October 2017

Kendrick Lamar sold out in minutes, and Seatwave is flooded with tickets for 3x the prices. I want you to know you're a leech, reseller.— Terence (@lowfatevil) 6 October 2017
Others targeted 'fake fans' of Kendrick for the outselling of tickets.

Earlier in the week, many fans took to social media to express their disappointment with the price of tickets themselves.
A ticket in the Gold Circle Standing area would set you back £241.75 per ticket, with the cheapest standing ticket starting at £70.00.
"Kendrick Lamar tickets are £115 each ahahaha what a joker x sit down be humble" wrote one user.
