Olivia Rodrigo fans are calling out her team for booking small venues for her Sour tour after tickets for it instantly sold out.

There's no denying that Olivia Rodrigo is one of the biggest stars in the world today. After releasing her debut single back in January, the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress became a household name. 'Drivers License' and 'Good 4 U' are both record-breaking Number 1s and her first album Sour is easily the most successful project of the entire year.

With that in mind, there is a huge demand to see Olivia perform on tour but many fans have been unable to get tickets.

Earlier this week (Dec 6), Olivia took to social media to announce that she would be going on tour from April to July in 2022. As it stands, the pop star has announced dates for the US and Europe with Gracie Abrams, Holly Humberstone and Baby Queen all supporting her. However, fans were dismayed to see that the venues are amphitheatres instead of arenas.

Most amphitheatres hold 5,000 people maximum, whereas arenas can often hold up to 20,000 people. Given how popular Olivia is, people imagined that these venue sizes would make securing tickets to see her live very hard and, now that the tickets have instantly sold out, their fears have been proven true.

At one stage, over 40,000 Olivia Rodrigo fans were in a queue for a venue with a 3,500 capacity.

As it stands, Olivia and her team are yet to respond to the backlash. However, it's possible that they will upgrade the venues or even add extra dates to the lineup.

What do you think? Did you manage to get tickets?
