Tickets go on sale this week for the highly anticipated Flight of the Conchords tour and demand has prompted the shows promoters to come up with a plan to combat scalping.
300 prime tickets for each show (limited to two per transaction) will be available by application at the box office, and in person only, from 8am Friday 23rd March.
“We really want to get tickets in local people’s hands at face value” said co-promoter Brent Eccles.
Co-promoter Stuart Clumpas added “There’s been a great deal of concern over ticket scalping in recent weeks and so, it’s back to the future where you personally queue up at the box office.”
Lines are expected to be long so radio stations the Edge and More FM will be joining the queues in each of the eight cities to serenade fans with coffee and entertainment.
For those with a Visa card, Visa pre-sale tickets go on sale at midday tomorrow Tuesday 20 March until 5pm Wednesday 21 March (limited to four per transaction) and non-members can sign up at Visa Entertainment – www.visaentertainment.co.nz.
