I believe the tickets are the same price to that of the general public.

You miss understand

Being a UK frenz it is an impossible trip for me,  I just wondered what the price at the check out was for such a rare and historic gig.

I used my phone and computer, and concur that the "book now" button did not appear on the link I had open on my phone until about 15minutes after the sale started.  I was able to get onto the ticket page on computer but as I tried to select tickets I was randomly directed back into the queue and lost my chance. I noticed that around 14 tickets were in the resale ticketmaster site for $320. The original price was $122 for those interested.  Oh well.  Character building! 

I was in the queue but didn't get a ticket. Out of curiosity, what did I need to type as the pre-sale code? I tried my membership number/s but didn't work. 

Well this isn't going too well. After clicking the Telstra link the presale page won't even load for me,, too heavy a demand.

A friend has at least got that page to load halfway...!

Not expecting to get anything.

Yeah trying the Telstra pre-sale as well, was there at 10am on the dot but the Sydney Opera House page is getting smashed and looks like it has died.

Now it loads a Queue-it page that says the link is broken and this queue doesn't exist. Not looking good, sigh

Finally got through to a queue. 348 people ahead of me and queue is paused. Assume there's no way I will get anything now, judging by how yesterday went with a larger allocation.

I'm still in the queue on Safari in the same position - it remains paused with this message:

MESSAGE LAST UPDATED: 10:17
We have temporarily paused the queue to allow a high volume of purchases to be completed, it will be active again as soon as possible. Tickets are still available for Crowded House: Encore. Thank you for your patience.

On Firefox I get an error with the picture of the Sydney Opera House saying the site is down and on Chrome I get the Queue-it error message.

I dread to think how the Live Nation presale will go. Though if that's through their site maybe it will withstand the pressure better.

Flight Centre also an option but I'm also buying for a friend who won't want flight and accommodation bundled with the ticket.

Ooh, queue moving!

This is the latest update but given how many people are in front of me I do not believe it to still be true when I get through:

MESSAGE LAST UPDATED: 10:40
There are still tickets available for Crowded House: Encore. Thank you for your patience.

PAUSED AGAIN?!?!

Who has time for this? My work day is vanishing...

I had the same experience but then the queue suddenly opened up.  Then it was just like a normal ticket purchase.  Two tix bought for Friday, yay!

Anybody who gets through, are there still Saturday tickets? That's the only day I'm buying for.

No, Saturday said 'allocation exhausted' when I tried.

Uh-oh, looks like I've just wasted an hour:

MESSAGE LAST UPDATED: 10:56
All remaining tickets are currently in checkout carts. Some may be returned. We will advise here when the ticket allocation is exhausted.

THEJERA : only to happy to help all our fellow Frenz in this desperate scrambling for tickets after a few of us missed out yesterday.

Guys and gals...just got my Friday tickets...using a link from yesterday...try this : https://www.sydneyoperahouse.c...;performancenumber=0

Via this link some Fridays just became available and vanished immediately.

Looks like Saturday is the most in-demand. When I got through with the fanclub yesterday both were initially available and I went Friday because a friend also in the queue was going for Saturday (but by the time she got through they were gone). Now kicking myself.

Feeling for you Axver as I had dramas yesterday in trying for both shows....hopefully the Live Nation sale has enough put aside and thinking good thoughts for you getting the ones you need.

Cheers. Hopefully the Live Nation one is through their website, which I recall being at least a bit more stable than the Opera House.

Game's over for today everyone:

MESSAGE LAST UPDATED: 11:10
Sorry, the ticket allocation for Crowded House: Encore is now exhausted.

Yeah... I failed again today too. I got through to select limited availability tickets, but when I clicked on the day that had limited availability (which kept alternating between Friday and Saturday), it gave me details about it going ahead rain or fine, but nowhere to actually select the tickets. Its been a frustrating couple of days. It looks like I will put all my eggs in the Flight Centre basket now. I'm not sure if I can brave the Opera House site again

Cosmo, thanks to your generous tip off, I've gleefully scored 2 Friday night tickets. First time I tried the link it said allocation exhausted, but I persevered and tried the link again and hey presto!! there were "limited seats available" for Friday night. Must have been tickets from carts that had expired and were thrown back in??Whatever the reason, I am truly grateful for them and deliriously excited

Great stuff Finnfrenzy...wish it had worked for everyone here...and hoping the best for those heading into Round 3 for the Live Nation attempt...I will try and be on then as well to see if I can be of assistance to anyone. It's going to be an amazing weekend for all the Frenz attending.

Hi Cosmo, I too would like to thank you for sharing that tip this morning. 

As a life FOTE member and Telstra customer I thought I would be OK between the 2 pre sales, but I ran into the same issues as other frenz. 

Thanks for brightening my day!

 

I am trying Flight Centre tomorrow in a desperate attempt.... I think they should of known they would get 500,000 people wanting to attend ! Not 5000...... It's consuming me....

I'm also a lifetime FOTE member, but sworn off Telstra for life haha. 

I tried the club pre-sale but got stuck with the code. 

Did I have to type in my membership number? If so, which one?
