Did you try and cop a pair?
Fans of Anderson .Paak have been left disappointed after tickets to his free concert next week sold out within seconds.
Apple Music announced just yesterday that the streaming service will be sponsoring a completely free show at London's Brixton Academy on Tuesday 13th March.
Tickets for the one-night only concert, which is being presented by Dr. Dre, went on sale at 9am this morning but seemingly sold out within seconds of going live on Ticketmaster.
Fans of the R&B singer-rapper took to social media to share their frustration in the wake of the sell-out, with many accusing bots of nabbing tickets.
Many directed their anger towards the ticketing website after failing to score tickets to the 5000-seat venue, with some suggesting that there wasn't even enough tickets to go around.

Ticketmaster are yet to respond to the criticism.
Meanwhile, Anderson .Paak recently dropped a new song 'Til It's Over', which debuted in the advert for Apple Music's latest product, the Home Pod, which starred fellow singer FKA Twigs.
The R&B crooner also featured on the soundtrack to Marvel's groundbreaking superhero film 'Black Panther'.
