Gah so frustrated!

Sitting there at 2pm all logged in ready to go and 15-20 seconds into it said they were all sold out...... So just incase on the work computer I loaded the page up and sat there for an hour spamming tickets for GA on one and Reserved seating on the laptop and didn't get any at all.

I get home and the website still says there are some tickets available for reserved seating but you go to buy them and it says they are unavailable.

This could have been handled in such a better way........ Like making the whole "must have a nin.com account" thing matter, not just letting anyone get in if they had the url.

Guess I'll try again on the 22nd with the Frontier touring pre-sale.

That sucks man! I was really surprised that you didn't need to have a nin.com account for the presale.

I managed to get tickets for myself and a friend for this show, so awww fuck yeah!

OK my trip to Melbourne from Shanghai has just been confirmed so I'm about to book my nosebleed reserved tickets (1 for each show). If there's anyone with a line on a single GA ticket for each show let me know! Yea I know wishful thinking...

Got 2 GA tickets to both shows. Cannot wait. Hopefully there is a rather big variation in setlists like the Tokyo shows!

Meg do you have a date for these shows in GA? I'm stuck in the nosebleeds and have no idea how I'm getting to the floor. Serious... Flying all the way from Shanghai.

Back to back shows, feels like 2007 again!
Hopefully history repeats and I run into TR pre-show!

Does anyone have a spare ticket for either Melbourne shows?

I will be grateful, I have taped both Sydney shows and the Newcastle show. Definitely need Melbourne!!!

Has anyone received an email from ticketek with the fan presale information? I got an email a few weeks before the gig for the Sydney fan pre-sale, with all the information on where to line up and what time to get there, etc., but haven't received anything for this show yet? Will the same numbered wristband thing be happening for the Melbourne show?

I haven't got anything yet, but on the purchase confirmation I got ages back when I bought them, it said that "Collection details are different for Sydney and Melbourne"

So who knows what that means...

It's so ridiculous. I've tried getting in contact with Ticketek for weeks now, sent them numerous emails and they don't have a phone number. Even resorted to posting on their facebook wall with no luck. Crazy!

Yeah, I re-read the purchase confirmation and saw that. Would be nice if they pointed out the differences between Sydney and Melbourne :/

So I've spoken with the venue and the promoter, and neither had any information on the early entry/numbered wristband stuff that happened at the Sydney, Newcastle and I presume Perth gigs.

Gonna assume it's not happening, even though that was part of the fan presale perks?

Edit: Frontier said they have nothing to do with the fan club side of things... Who does then? Argh.

03-11-2014, 10:08 PM
Gah, that's annoying. I don't even care if it's different, I'd just like a "To pick up your tickets, go to X at Ypm" rather than being left in the dark. From the sounds of it it's entirely in Ticketek's hands.

Actually, according to their twitter we can pick up tickets from 4:15pm & we need to bring Photo ID and the Credit Card we used: https://twitter.com/Ticketek_AU/status/443549771613995008

They are being so vague, it's really frustrating not knowing what's going on. Especially when the venue and promoter had no idea about the early entry.

This is what we got emailed for the Sydney show, there's so much info, it was great, they even had a map telling us where to line up:

Worst comes to worst I guess we just turn up at 6pm and try to get in, we wouldn't be the only people confused about this because we haven't got sent any info.

I have one GA ticket available for face value ($125). I'm planning to rock up early for front posi and whoever buys my ticket has to be with me for wristband and ticket pickup due to fan club requirements. Contact me at derekmd@hotmail.com

They took their sweet ass time sending it out. Oh well, just glad it's definitely happening! Got a bit worried when the venue and promoter had no idea about it.

What at time is everyone rocking up to the venue?

Aww Yeah! Today's the day.

Ended up with reserved seating. Never been to Rod Laver before but I guess its just a tram away from Richmond Stn. (http://www.rodlaverarena.com.au/arriving-and-access/public-transport/)

Found this on the Rod Laver Arena site.


Box Office (red booth): 4.30pm
Turnstiles: 5pm
Brody Dalle: 6.30pm
QOTSA or NIN*: 7.20pm
Interval: 8.40pm
QOTSA or NIN*: 9.10pm
Concludes: 10.30pm (times approx)

* Main Artist order of appearance to be finalised on day of show.

Professional cameras are prohibited. Small personal cameras, including camera phones, are permitted.

MCG/Yarra Park carpark open via Gate 3.

Melbourne Park carpark open. A pre-booking system is online (https://prebook.mopt.vic.gov.au/). Customers can pre-purchase their parking via this link. At $20 the pre-booking option (must be at least 24hrs in advance) represents a 33% saving on the walk-up fee ($30).

Note: On both nights there will be events on at AAMI Park which means a busy precinct. Please plan your journey ahead and use public transport if possible.

EDIT: I havent really gone looking around to see if anyone else has mentioned but how much are we looking at for the merch for those who went to the other AUS shows?

Gotta agree that I loathe RLA as a venue (second only to Etihad for lack of ambience), but hoping for a great night!
Plan to roll up there late afternoon I suppose.

Merch was pretty standard price wise. $40 for a tour shirt, $80 for a hoodie. $30 tour posters, $10 HM posters. $15 key rings, etc.

Gonna get there about 5.30pm, give me some time to chill, beforehand. In addition to the songs I mentioned earlier, I would love to hear The Day the World Went Away. I think I would shit myself.

That would be great to hear. I'd love them to play The Great Destroyer like they did in Tokyo recently, that breakdown was earsplitting awesome.
