Sold Out In Seven Minutes!

May 25, 2009 12:33am CST
The tickets for ACDC's home tour {Australian tour} were sold out in seven minutes so the promoters are having to try and organise more concerts I believe. Ticketek had to change the whole site and make it so only a few people could go further than the homepage and buy tickets because that's how many people were headed for Ticketek site. Opinions anyone? This is kind of funny, I tried to get on Ticketek and I got put on 'hold', basically the page where you've got to keep clicking a button to try and get in, I think it took about 37 minutes for me to get beyond that page, then I got stuck at that page again. No tickets for me, oh well, but they're home now so it's all good.

they are very popular especially in there home country it is no wander they sold out but i am surprised that it was so quickly, i hope it was fans who brought the tickets and not the people who sell them on the black market for massive profits

People actually had been queuing up for hours outside the Ticketek offices to buy the tickets! I think some people even slept outside Ticketek to make sure they'd get a ticket. It's fairly expensive, and I agree with you, I definitely hope all the fans got the ticket rather than black marketeers. But this is indeed AC/DC so the fans probably consumed all the tickets. They've hooked another two shows I believe, it's the fastest time that any concert has sold out completely in Australia.

I had a feeling this would happen. I believe they are coming to New Zealand soon and hope that the tickets don't sell out too fast because i would like to go!
