The Killers tickets “sold out”

Golden Circle tickets for The Killers’ Jo’burg concert at the Coca-Cola Dome on Friday 4th December have sold out – barely two hours after officially going on sale. Recession? What recession?
However, at the time of writing, Golden Circle tickets for the Cape Town concert on the 6th at the Val de Vie Polo Estate are still available.

There are many reasons why this dichotomy exists. Perhaps the greater numbers of tickets available for a larger venue, less demand, financial concerns or – most likely –  the fact that most Capetonians haven’t actually got around to heading onto the Computicket website, because it’s Friday, dude and the weekend actually started last night.
Jo’burgers will have been up at 3 to avoid the traffic and, having arrived at work at 7, will have proceeded to buy their tickets immediately before doing that filing, writing those reports and sms’ing each other about how great it was to have a thunderstorm last night and did you see the clouds that looked like a spaceship and there was lightning and how summer is almost here with it’s lovelyrain and hail.
These things make them happy, which is not great, because everyone knows that a happy Jo’burger is annoying.

You can tickets via Computicket for both concerts. I notice that Computicket have now officially labeled the Cape Town gig as “Paarl”, which is technically more accurate. The Killers’ official website is sticking with “Cape Town”, though. Probably because Americans don’t even know where South Africa is (there’s a hint in the name, guys), let alone Paarl.

I have mine. I know others who have theirs. You’d surely be silly to miss out.

  1. Golden Circle tickets for the Dome actually sold out last night – all were snapped up via the pre-sale link from The Killers official site.

  2. Goblin > As soon as Phillipe’s money arrives, I’ll get them.

    Mark > Except that Computicket were actually already selling tickets for both gigs on Wednesday, despite what Big Concerts, Highveld and Kfm were saying.

  3. Po > Chilled is good, ne?

    Goblin > Durban is only slightly larger than Royal Leamington Spa. #fact
    The Killers didn’t play RLS and they’re not playing Durban. #fact

  4. @6000: yup, story I hear is that only a portion of each rung were supposed to go on pre-sale with the remainder going into general sale today at 9am… seems Computicket screwed up and made all tickets available from Wednesday.

  5. Goblin: you do note that the Killers are not going to Durbs right? That is cos they probably haven’t got around to hearing about them yet 😉 never mind getting into gear to buy tickets.
    .-= po´s last blog ..Girl Interrupted Friday =-.

  6. Po > Are you suugesting that durbanites are more laid back than capetonians?

    Po > (eh?) I said that Durban was bigger. And it’s further from Coventry.

  7. OL > Look dearie, they’re not going to Durban and some 36 towns and cities below that, they’re not going to PE. It’s not important. 😉

  8. OL > Hey – good news – they just announced another date in Oudtshoorn. That’s kinda close to you, right?
    Maybe you’ll be too fat to go by then, though. 😉

  9. We’ll be there. Along with a set of tiny mufflers for the Samwich. Better to see a great band in decline, than not to see them at all.
