jaymz:
bazzer:
jaymz: Sweet, 4 tickets on their way (I like to have physical tickets to save)

So, the question is:

What type of tickets did you get?
If you got seats, where are you located?

I got Gold Reserve in the lower bowl, pretty close to right in front of the stage!

You'll be lucky at Vector.  At least for GA they take your tickets off you, and if you're lucky and/or fast you can get a nice ticket back at the end.  Probably for reserved seating they don't do that though...

This year alone I have had 4 or 5 shows that I don't have the tickets to now, which bums me out since I also like to keep my stubs (and in mint condition) to frame with the show poster etc...


Good to know, the benifit with reserved seating is you can request your tickets again (you can't with GA for obvious reasons)  So all I will do is say I "lost" them and pay for new ones to be sent out.  Then I can keep the tickets in mint condition.

Ahhh I can't wait now!!!!! Only 162 days to go!!!

As I said, at Vector you can do the same with GA tickets, but I hadn't considered doing that before.  That's a great idea, and something I will think about from now on.  I thought about contacting them now and getting them to reprint them but even if they can, I really doubt they will, which is a real shame.

Don't get the two tickets muddled up though as the old barcode will have been invalidated!

Think you missed out on it man, well the Metclub presale anyway.. this is in the members section

"Wow! Thanks for all of your support and patience during today's pre-sales for the upcoming shows in New Zealand and Australia in the Fall. Tickets allocated for the Fan Club are now sold out in Melbourne, but plenty of tickets are still available in other cities although certain sections, including the G.A. floor, may be sold out.
Ticket agent pre-sales begin on Friday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 11 . . . please check with your local ticket services for more details.

The general on-sale begins on Thursday, May 13 at 9:00 AM local time . . .we would suggest that you keep a close eye on the MetClub site around that time . . ."

Note it doesnt mention NZ, however when i went to ticketmasters hidden page, it says its theres no more tickets for allocated and GA (wasnt completly sure if thats because i have my max of 4 already or not though)

Edit:  "The general on-sale begins on Thursday, May 13 at 9:00 AM local time . . .we would suggest that you keep a close eye on the MetClub site around that time . . ."  hmmm that has got my attention, wonder what that could mean..

I'm guessing there is a 2nd show and possibly Metclub members get first choice again?

No one has missed out on anything yet.. The first show isnt sold out yet, in fact the general sale tickets are yet to go on sale. A very limited ammount of tickets to the first show have been sold through presales, its just that those presales had huge interest, id imagine theres still thousands of tickets for the first show still to go, these go on sale on later in the week through ticketmaster..

Sorry, should have clarified it a bit more, I meant the MetClub pre sales.

I would imagine that the general public sales will go pretty fast though.
I am picking 7 minutes till they sell out :P

I'll prob buy 4 tickets to the 2nd show tomorrow, but the Fan Club presale starts exactly the same time as the My Ticketmaster presale, which anyone can access really (You just need to register on their website I think)
