Hi I hope I'm putting this in the right area. I have 2 tickets for Mon 9th March show at Brissie on the floor and was wondering if anyone with seated tix would like to swap with me. Due to me being such a shortarse I'm thinking I probably won't see much on the floor. I'm looking for tix in either sections S8A, S46A, S13, or S42.


Thanks heaps.

Hmmm, believe it or not, NOT, but if someone would like a GA11 (General Admission ticket, 2nd half of the arena standing) I am *gasps* willing to sell it. I have a mountain of other committments which makes getting to the concert nearly impossible. I'll do it if no one snaps this ticket up. It originally cost me $150, but I am sooOOooOOOooo willing to sell for



I ended up only getting 1 which means a lonely night of amazing entertainment for myself, but if someone else is going and is in the GA11 area and wants an extra ticket for a family member or friend, please send me a message. I just really want someone to enjoy the most of what the ticket has to offer.



Trust me, I am kicking myself for not getting a ticket for the Monday show! :\ Anyway, I REALLY need to sell this. If I go, I'll have to leave half way just to make sure I have a way to get home. Seriously, if anyone is interested, PLEASE message me about this!

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here. I have to get rid of a ticket to Sunday nights show. It's right UP THE FRONT standing section GA12. I can't make it due to a death in the family. Please get in contact with me ASAP if you'd like the ticket and I'll sell it at cost price $140.
