best news ever to hear you on your way to south africa....im sure you guys will be back cause this place is incredible.
been trying to get tickets to take my family to the show at soccer city, its a 700km drive for us but i promised my son (5year old) id take him.
just thought id let you guys be aware that the computicket system was sold out within days....great for you guys but dissapointing for thousands of south africans as majority of the tickets were sold online to "dodgy bussiness" tycoons, who purchased huge amounts of tickets and are now selling em on local online trade stores such as gumtree for as much as 10 times there value, my wife was online the day tickets opened and waited 2 days to be attended to.....by then getting 3 seated tickets was impossible, so we had to resort to www.gumtree.co.za (jhb) to find tickets, only to find hundreds available at ridiculous prices........i made the kid a promise so i had to pay the crazy rates to get 3 joint seated tickets right at the top of the stadium.......just thought id let you guys know, so maybe next time maybe you guys could muscle some authority with the vendors with some possible purchasing rules....that would enable fans to get tickets instead of profit making mainstream monsters.
anyway......gripes aside, look forward to the show and seeing the smile on the kids face when he sees that stage light up....with you guys kinning it.......especially after the long drive up from durban.
have a safe trip and see you soon!
