Any bets on how fast they will sell out?

I guess that they will sell out in 6 minutes

What a joke.... We had 4 of us refreshing the page and booking from 9:00:01. None of us could get a single ticket under any configuration. Apparently big queues in the streets at some of the physical outlets too. How many tickets do they give to corporates, etc?

I officially hate ticketmaster now. I disliked them before but now its hate :) I dont even care if it's their fault

Damnit, Anyone hook us up a ticket lol? :)

Pathetic. I was in the line in for the ticketmaster in hamilton on my laptop and they managed to sell 3 over the counter before they were gone. Lasted about 30 seconds.

So both shows sold out in under a minute?
Also glad I joined the fan club.
I did the same thing when the RHCP came a few years ago to make sure that I could get 4 tickets. Those concerts also sold out very quickly.

Amen to that!  I have to say I was smirking to myself listening to The Rock this morning and hearing them sell out (nasty I know!)

I've noticed that too. I am guess cause the physical tickets haven't been printed yet, or there are just so many fans that the scalpers didn't have a chance!!!

Trade Me requires you to have the tickets in your posession to be allowed to sell them. Seeing as noone has the physical tickets yet TM will remove any auctions. I imagine they will be policing it pretty heavily for the next little while.

Yeah, I wanted the physical ones.  I wonder if they can resupply me the PDF too?  - I am just impatient to see the tickets!!!

Loving the Mandatory Metallica on the rock at the moment too. Man I miss this.

Used to tune in each night for it back when I was at high school!

Just heard, all tickets sold out in 20 minutes. Both shows all sold out.

Hard luck to those who missed out, congrats to those who secured tickets!

What a idiot, wonder how long before auction is pulled.

"Broke student" my ass, if you can afford ~$600 for the tickets in the first place!
