You’ve got a ticket to ride

KEEN con­cert­go­ers may not re­alise there’s a sec­tion just for them in the Week­end Shopper.

The tick­ets sec­tion re­sells tick­ets not just for ma­jor con­certs, but also other shows and fes­ti­vals that are tak­ing place around the river city.

Re­duced priced tick­ets to a wide range of gigs are avail­able each Satur­day.

If there’s a con­cert you’d re­ally like to catch and you missed out on tick­ets, this is the place to search.

Most of the time, the seller is just as big a fan as the buyer but can’t at­tend the event due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances.

Ei­ther way it’s a bar­gain, par­tic­u­larly for shop­pers who thought their show was sold out.

Last week, two tick­ets to John Wil­liamson and the Queens­land Sym­phony Orches­tra were of­fered for $160. B re­serve tick­ets to the event are sell­ing on­line for $119 each while A re­serve are $139 each, so this is a sig­nif­i­cant sav­ing.

Mean­while, on­line tick­ets to Lionel Richie’s March 25 per­for­mance vary de­pend­ing on whether they are sil­ver ($108), Gold ($152) or Plat­inum ($252).

Week­end Shopper is ad­ver­tis­ing three tick­ets for $300 or two gold tick­ets for $350.

For some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent, two tick­ets to Lisa Wil­liams’ Mes­sages from Be­yond show are sell­ing for al­most half price at $100.

There were also two Neil Di­a­mond tick­ets for $350, a Sound­wave ticket for $170 and two tick­ets to Kings of Leon for $200.

De­pend­ing on the time of year, shop­pers will find tick­ets to sport­ing events, ex­hi­bi­tions, art shows, the­atri­cal per­for­mances and a host of other cul­tural op­tions.
