More tickets for the Radiohead shows in Australia will be made available closer to the shows.
Tickets sold out fast in Australia for the Radiohead shows in November. A lot of those tickets ended up on eBay for outrageous amounts. Promoter Chugg Entertainment said that handful of tickets will be made available from cancelled transactions that were deemed to have breached the conditions of sale.
Chugg Entertainment: ”So, there’s been a lot of questions regarding when & how cancelled Radiohead tickets will be released back to sale. These tickets (and any other potential new releases) won’t be made available for sale at this time. We’ll be releasing them closer to the tour dates and any announcements in relation to this will appear on this page, as well as our website.
When Radiohead tickets went on sale to the public last Thursday Ticketmaster and Ticketek struggled to cope with the demand and while many punters missed out, a flood of over-priced tickets soon appeared on e-bay. Chuggs responded to the issue, advising they would be policing the matter with cancellations where possible: “We will not cancel a ticket unless we can determine with absolute certainty which exact seats or general admission tickets breach the conditions of sale, as we would otherwise risk cancelling tickets purchased by true fans like the majority of you. With that said, we are regularly scanning listings to look for tickets that we are able to cancel and will continue to do so up until the tour. If you come across a listing that specifies the exact ticket allocation (including seat numbers or exact GA ticket numbers) please send the page link to us at email@example.com and we will look into it immediately.”
”Since yesterday afternoon, the ticketing agencies have found a small number of credit cards that had transacted more than one order of 4 tickets, and subsequently have cancelled a handful of tickets. We again urge you NOT to buy tickets from scalpers or off of eBay as there is a chance that one of these cancelled orders is the tickets you just paid for.”
