Scalpers Come out on Top in Scramble to nab Alanis Tickets

Alanis-Live

90’s singer/song writer powerhouse Alanis Morissette is coming to Australia for the first time in almost 20 years with two ‘acoustic and intimate’ shows in Sydney and Melbourne booked for mid January 2018.  The Grammy winning singer will perform at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Tuesday January 23 and Sydney’s ICC Theatre on Wednesday January 24, performing an acoustic song-list spanning her entire career with songs from her debut album Jagged Little Pill to her most recent release, 2012’s Havoc and Bright Lights.

The high demand to see the 90’s favorite return to our shores saw tickets for the two shows (which went on general sale through Ticketmaster.com.au and Ticketek.com.au at 9am this morning (Monday August 7th)) sell out in minutes though judging by the backlash on social media it appears scalpers came out in full force versus the fans with re-seller websites being flooded with tickets listed at two times plus the original price only moments later.

 

 

 

 

 

The tickets which ranged from a respectable $99 or $139 are now flooding ticket reselling sites such as Ticketmaster’s ‘authorized’ reselling page with a minimum $300 price tag while the horribly reviewed Viagogo has tickets from $230 not including the $60+ booking fee.

Madonna Announces Australian Rebel Heart Tour Dates

Madonna is coming to Australia
Madonna is *finally* including Australia (and New Zealand) in a world tour.

Let’s put things into perspective – the last time Madonna toured Australia, I was 13 years old.  The next time she’ll visit us, I’ll be almost 36 years old.

Weird to think the last time Madonna was in Australia, I was 13 years old and in the midst of a major Madonna phase.  It was The Girlie Show Tour and when tickets were on sale, I was sick – very sick, and had taken a few days off from school. So much was my Madonna love, the entire year level thought I had taken time off to try and snag tickets.  Thus was not the case, I never got to see the concert – naturally assuming there’d be plenty more visits over the coming years……

ahem.

23 years I’ve been waiting for Madonna to bring a tour down under – Drowned World, Re-Invention, Confessions (Man I would have killed to see this live), Sticky & Sweet, MDNA – 5 world tours and nadda.  Finally though, Madonna has confirmed she’s bringing her Rebel Heart tour to our distant shores.

Part of me is super excited – I mean come on, it’s Madonna.  This is the woman who claims the bragging rights of being the first ever person to grace my bedroom wall in poster format all the way back in 1986 – the other half is a bit eh-eh as (by previous tours) we’ll more than likely be hit with tracks from her latest album Rebel Heart – which (sad to say) is one of my least favorite albums from Madonna to date.

I’m not going to bitch and moan about the album though…Madonna is coming to Australia!

There’s already a bunch of pre-pre-sale specials set and Livenation has listed a slew of platinum and VIP tour packages that will set fans (not me) back a few thousand dollars.

Rebel Heart Australia Tour Dates:

Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne – March 12th 2016
Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne – March 13th 2016
Allphones Arena, Sydney – March 19th 2016
Allphones Arena, Sydney – March 20th 2016
Entertainment Centre, Brisbane – March 26th 2016
Entertainment Centre, Brisbane – March 27th 2016

I’ll personally be very happy with the everyday regular side-restricted view $99 tickets – that’s if I manage to grab some tickets!
