I didn't have any trouble. Shame about the fanclub tickets, maybe keep trying in case there was an error? It was running pretty slow after the initial ticekt selection which leads me to believe there were a lot of users on. Ticketmaster must have some good servers, are they NZ based?

It's no joke, it's a popular show. I do wonder how many tickets they had up for this presale though, considering they also have to hold some back for the general sale. It's not all over yet.

Other reporting same issue on Metclub forums. I know it's popular, but to be sold out in less than a minute?

The first show was no issue at all

Some on metclub are saying they can still see tickets available for metclub members now, some (like me) are just getting the message that there are none left, and have been since 12

A lot of people wouldn't have been in on the media presale, and perhaps the metclub didn't get a separate allocation? Today would have had the most people trying for tickets so far, so it makes sense they'd sell out quicker. It's the "My Ticketmaster" presale, if you're buying online you're in "My Ticketmaster" so basically, everyone's trying.

Perhaps an error with the fanclub allocation today, so don't give up. Keep checking. Otherwise, there's always the general sale. I wonder if there's any tickets on trademe yet...

Yeah, the joke was the number they must have had available for this "presale". I'm considering queuing at a physical outlet on Thurs morning rather than wrestling with the internet again....

I rang ticketmaster and they confirmed they were all gone within a minute...

This isn't what many others are saying on the Metclub forums. Someone from Metclub itself looked themselves at 20 past and could see tickets and are taking to Ticketmaster to see that is going on.

Metclub_Dan from Metforums:

Ok... sounds like Ticketmaster is shutting down codes after 4 tickets are purchased, regardless of the show. Thanks for helping diagnose the problem. We're working on getting TM to solve the issue.

Be patient everyone.

lol, the guy on the phone told me they were sold out and next chance was from all outlets 9am Thursday...

I tried feverishly online from 12:00:01 to around 12:15 when I rang them and they told me that....

Aargh

Generally speaking, the outlets do not have a set number of tickets available to them.  So if you're not first in the line and the show sells out in 1 minute you're probably out of luck.  I think they might sometimes have their own allocation, but I honestly wouldn't bother lining up when you can get them easier and quicker on the internet.

Metclub or my ticketmaster?

I've been trying the my ticketmaster one since 12 with the keyword MAGNETIC and nothing. Tried 1 ticket, tried 4, all areas, both dates, everything.

Nothing...
