Tick­ets sold in record time

Taupo Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - TA­MARA THORN

Taupo’s Sum­mer Con­cert has sold out with all 15,000 tick­ets snapped up in just one week.

Green­stone En­ter­tain­ment re­cently an­nounced the sum­mer line up last week, and al­ready Taupo has sold out in record time.

The Sum­mer line up con­cert fea­tures Ge­orge Thoro­good & The De­stroy­ers, Ala­nis Moris­sette and Colin Hay of Men At Work fame. They are play­ing con­certs in Queen­stown, Taupo and Whi­tianga in late Jan­uary.

Tick­ets are now in high de­mand for the Queen­stown and Whi­tianga con­certs now that Taupo is sold out.

Green­stone En­ter­tain­ment CEO, Amanda Calvert said they were ‘‘blown away’’ by the re­sponse to the Taupo con­cert.

’’In its seven-year his­tory, this is the first time we have ex­pe­ri­enced a sell out for one of our shows only one week af­ter an­nounce­ment.

‘‘It cer­tainly shows our fans love not just the amaz­ing line up of acts we strive to de­liver each year, but also the unique af­ter­noon at­mos­phere and idyl­lic hol­i­day lo­ca­tions around the coun­try where we’re blessed to hold the con­certs.

‘‘We want to thank ev­ery­one for their on­go­ing sup­port and en­cour­age those still need­ing tick­ets for the Queen­stown or Whi­tianga show to se­cure them be­fore they too sell out.’’

Tick­ets are still avail­able for the Gibb­ston Val­ley Win­ery Sum­mer Con­cert in Queen­stown and the Whi­tianga Sum­mer Con­cert.

The sold out con­cert will be held at Taupo Am­phithe­atre on Auck­land An­niver­sary Week­end.

Ticket pur­chases through www.green­stoneen­ter­tain­ment.co.nz or www.tick­etek.co.nz for $99 plus book­ing fee.
