Birds of Tokyo tick­ets gone in a flash

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

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.
