Dude, if you're worried about revealing your age then perhaps putting the year you were born in your username isn't such a smart idea? blockquote> And not a 'dude...I am a 'lady'(said like they say i in Little Britain) And no 74 is not my birth year: that is a false assumption....but glad that worked as thats the idea....to make people think thats the year I was born

I got in right on opening, secured two RZ tickets for Brisbane, and then before i could complete the transaction Ticketek unceremoniously timed me out. *sigh*

You should call them, sometimes it has processed enough to secure the tickets.

Totally crashed now ....... nothing.

I can't believe the Sydney show has not sold out yet, I'm able to get into Ticketek site and pick seats, review them, remove them and go back and pick others and it's all relatively quick.

 

Although I did find if I picked say 4 P2 I couldn't then add say 4 GA for a total of 8 tickets.

 

It appears you had to pick 8 of the same type via online.

Well I guess I am just a lucky guy. After getting screwed over (like a bunch of other people did) on the ticketek presale, now I have managed to SECURE A REDZONE ticket AFTER the presale has ended!!....

but then......

"you have 1 minute left to complete your transaction" (immediately clicks on the pay now button)

"your session has timed out"

NOOOooooo!!!!!

AAAaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!

and my redzone ticket was gone!

Have spent 1 hour on the site, logged in numerous times and just managed to get a GA for Brisbane in the dying moments of the sale. Ticketek are definitely NOT getting a Christmas card from me this year!did you get your RZ Sands? Just wondering what other ppz thoughts are regarding the fact RZ's can be bought AFTER the 'pre'sale said they we totally exhausted??

Bummer 4 x P2 at Sydney is now coming up as 107-1 vs 110-1 I got last Thursday through the pre-sale.

 

Maybe they were previously being held for ANZ members or sponsors or something.

 

Temping to buy the better seats and sell the others, but don't have another $938 to drop just like that.

You should try calling ticketek ... sometimes the tickets are secured. Had you sent payment? Sometimes if it times out while taking payment the sale still goes through.

 

Yeah got mine, was very very lucky.

You should just keep an eye on Ticketek throughout today and over the weekend. I'd be amazed if Melb and Syd at least didn't get extra shows. Takes time to sell all the tix to a stadium. You just need to catch it at the right time.
