Secondary ticketing sites have cashed in as tickets for Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard's Irish tour sold out in just 15 minutes.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder announced a string of solo tour dates across Ireland and the UK for summer 2017.

The tour includes a run of European festivals and headline dates, where he will be joined by longtime friend, former Frames frontman Glen Hansard.

They'll take to Dublin's 3Arena on Friday, June 9.

Tickets went on sale this Friday at 9am but sold out in 15 minutes.

Tickets were priced at €61.45 but, as usual, dozens of listings appeared on secondary ticketing sites offering the passes at inflated prices just minutes after going on sale.

Ticketmaster-owned Seatwave, the official ticket-selling partner for the gig, is advertising passes for up to €360.
