Tickets to Ed Sheeran's Manila concert for November 7 went on sale at 10 AM today, despite the clamor by fans for a change in venue. Sheerios insisted that "Ed deserves better" than the announced venue and demanded that the organizers change it to MOA Arena instead. There is an online petition which was signed by over 2,000 fans but it seems like the show will go on at the originally intended venue.
As of 10:29 AM (at least, on our watch), Patron A tickets were already sold out.

By 2:30 PM, limited seats were available for Patron B and about a few hundred seats for Patron C. The free standing sections of Gold and Silver, which can accommodate thousands, are still available via the official ticketing site - SM Tickets. General Admission tickets were all snapped up by 3 PM.
While tickets are obviously still not sold out and can be purchased via SM Tickets for their original prices, quite a number of ticket sellers have appeared on sites like StubHub and OLX.
A Patron A ticket which originally cost 13,040 PHP was sold for 18,500 PHP. General Admission tickets, priced at 1,950 PHP each are selling for as high as 5,620 PHP.
[UPDATE 12 JUNE 2017 8:39] Patron A, Gold and General Admission sections are now sold out.
Bandwagon has reached out to Ovation Productions for a statement regarding unauthorized selling from said agencies. Last May, a woman was arrested in Singapore for allegedly selling fake Ed Sheeran and Coldplay tickets.
