Birds of Tokyo tickets gone in a flash
PERTH band Birds of Tokyo has proven popular with City of Wanneroo residents.
All 12,000 tickets to the City’s free annual concert at Wanneroo Showground were snapped up one hour and 20 minutes after becoming available on Monday.
Residents were able to select a maximum of four adult tickets per email address.
No more tickets will be released for the November 4 event.
“We knew Perth’s own Birds of Tokyo would create a lot of excitement but we were amazed at how quickly we reached capacity,” Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said.
While many people were thankful that they got tickets, others expressed disappointment on social media.
“As a resident of the Shire who has never failed to pay rates and who has supported all Shire events I feel very let down by the ticket allocation,” one resident said.
“I was online on time to no avail. Can’t believe I missed out.
“Never missed out before,” another resident said.
One person suggested the City needed to find a bigger venue.
