Ticket sales for Prince’s upcoming UK tour have been postponed, with the star blaming touts.

Ticketmaster announced the postponement on Friday via a tweet: “On sale of Prince – Piano & A Microphone tour has been postponed & will not be going ahead at 10am this morning,” it explained.

Then Prince followed up with a tweeted photo of a vulture and a multiple-choice question: “A. SCAVENGER   B. VULTURE   C. TOUT  D. ALL OF THE ABOVE” before linking to an article published the same day by Which? about its investigation into secondary ticketing websites.

That included the finding that tickets for some big tours were available on Ticketmaster’s secondary site Get Me In! as soon as they were available on its primary site.
