Iron Maiden's UK tour this year didn't sell out straight away because the touts stayed clear of it. All fans that wanted had a fair shot at tickets.
I went to see Maiden at Birmingham, took a printout of the confirmation email, photo ID and credit card that it was paid on.

It was advertised as a PAPERLESS gig, and then said you had to take a printed copy of the confirmation

All they wanted to see was the email

You still had to get your credit card put into a machine to generate a voucher that allowed access.
The confirmation email links the card to the purchase.
Touts are not going to want to give away their credit cards to let people in.
I didn't get photo I'd checked at Newcastle or Glasgow but I was on my own so no point in checking if I was a tout.
I believe QOTSA are checking photo ID on their UK tour.

I'll have a leisurely stroll up to the arena around half 1, get some special London specific merch, eat some food and take my seat about 5 to Foo.... sorted!

It won't be anywhere near as fun though....

Ooohh where's that from? Is that because the arena itself doesnt open til then? I can't imagine that stopping people, even if the kind of congregate outside the main entrance. I know some people for Muse have queued overnight there.
