Torquay Mumford and Sons fans brave the rain to queue through the night
FANS queued through the night to secure tickets for Mumford and Sons' gig at Torquay's Princess Theatre.
But there was frustration for many trying to get tickets online as they faced computer problems.
By 10.30am tickets were being advertised at online auction sites for £175 each.
The first fans lined up at the theatre at 7.30pm last night, and by the time the box office opened this morning there were several hundred people in a line stretching back beyond the Pierpoint cafe.

First in line was Torquay student Jack Wenman, who spent 13 and a half hours waiting for his chance to get a coveted ticket for the gig on November 21.
"I couldn't not be here," said Jack, who studies at South Devon College.
"They are the best band in the world."
Cold and wet through the night, those in the queue were delighted when theatre staff brought them hot coffee and made sure they were queueing under shelter.
Students Lucy Wheeler, Zoe Wheeler, Abbie Charnley and Jazmin Smith from Kingskerswell and Torquay were in the queue from 1am.
They were cold and wet, and unimpressed with leaking drains, but they passed the time fruitfully.
Abbie said: "We've been doing our course work, reading The Great Gatsby!"
Many fans trying to buy tickets online were left frustrated as the ticket system was inundated with buyers.
Tickets sold out online within around 20 minutes.
