Are there grants available to cover travel expenses? I'm really good at grant writing!

Seriously happy to have such an understanding and supportive wife who is willing to cosinder venturing halfway round the world for these concerts. What if it rains?

Oh wow I am so excited for this and the reissues. Definitely going to jump on a plane and fly up from Melbourne. Wouldn't miss this for the world.

Might have to look into these Flight Centre travel packages...

We need much like the 96 concert for this to be recorded as a DVD. All of us who are life long fans and who can't make the show wouldn't mind paying for such a gem. 

apologies in advance (because I know this is a stupid question), but on sale 9 am SYDNEY time, yes?

Could you please tell me how to buy tickets... I have not received the email ,

thanks 

Rhonda, if you are a club member just email me (peter@frenz.com) with name, address and your membership number (it would be in the kit when you joined)  dont delay as the fanclub presale is tomorrow.  The public sale is on the 26th  livenation.com.au

Thank god, got Friday tickets! Received a fairly decent place in the Book Now queue even though I only noticed it as the clock struck 9am.

My friend noticed it a minute later and she just got through, everything gone, bugger. Will have to try for Saturday in another sale.

I snagged Saturday, but missed out on Friday even though my ticket numbers were 65&66 for Sat....anyone book both days with one transaction?...I wasn't game to try.

Yeah... I missed out too. I think I got on at 1 minute past 9... It took me a while to see that there was a box to click that said <Book Tickets>. Was there a restriction on the number of tickets people could buy?

I tried for both, but I selected Friday first. By the time I went back, Saturday was gone.

Very relieved I got Friday. The site actually crashed after I told it to process my payment but I got my confirmation email a few seconds later, phew.

I didn't pay attention to the maximum, I was just focused on picking 2, but it looked like the dropdown menu went to at least 8.

I was hoping it would be limited to 2-4.

Got on before 9am and was 186th in the queue.... after a stressful 10 minutes of waiting for my place to get just one of a total of 2000 tickets, I missed out.  I wonder if this link was shared wider than it should have been as it seems some scalpers have got in on the action, as surely every fan would not have bought in excess of 10 tickets each?  I'm pretty gutted to be fair - I was going to fly over from NZ to see them.  Guess I try in the general pre-sale but that will be worse than the Fan sale.... :-(

I I agree the scalpers were onto it... I guess $$$$ for eBay tickets in the coming weeks... I got on at 9 am 333 I the queue and thought maybe..... But no luck....

Did anyone else miss out on tickets simply because whatever device they were using didn't display a Book Now button after following the link? Tried my partner's phone at 9 20 and there it was right as rain at the top of the page, my phone didn't show it after about ten fifteen attempts at following the link

I was contacted by people not in the club who asked for the details. I said they'll surely have luck in the Live Nation presale or general sale and did not pass anything on. People are being quite pushy, I hope nobody passed it on.

Yep - exactly the same thing happened to me....now have no tickets.  Why did they allow each person to buy up to 10 tickets......I only wanted one for me and one for my husband...........fans for over 30 years!!

 

Could be the type of phone, I did 3 test buys - our office computer an ipad and iphone -worked on all 3.  We did drop the ticket allocation down to 4 (sorry i know I originally told some of you 6 for those travelling in a group of Frenz from interstate) but it was set on 10 for groups but we thought 4 was better.   There is a telstra presale coming up for those who missed out.  I hate presales as you all know ..... no sign of the presale link being passed around that i was aware of. The club had 1/5th of the tickets for the shows (i think that was the Largest amount for all the presales).  If I hear of any more tickets being allocated I'll put it up here. 

My device didn't show a book now button either. Once I got through, allocation was exhausted but I stayed on the website for another 35 minutes refreshing and I managed to get 1 ticket for the Saturday show that popped up. Somebody had obviously removed it from their cart...

Yikes, so the total attendance is only 5,000? I assumed the shows would be much bigger.

These subsequent presales are going to be stressful. What's the deal with the Flight Centre thing? If I'm reading the blurb correctly, we have to ring, it's not online?

The deal with Flight Centre is by phone... I did phone  my local flight centre, and she didn't know anything about it... I am planning on going into a flight centre to get them to do it... Prob will miss out������

I'd give Flight centre a call on the 23rd like it says - hopefully they'll have the information . You are a few days early.  Good luck
