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.
