Executive producer of Southern Stars, Ian Millard, today urged people purchasing tickets for one of four shows of Southern Stars 2018 ICONIC, to onlybuy tickets from the official ticket seller, Ticketmaster.
Mr Millard said a number of people had contacted Southern Stars after realising they had been duped into purchasing tickets at three times the regular value.
“We have had some calls last night from a couple of people who spent over $140 per ticket on line from a third party on-selling site, not noticing it wasn’t the official ticket sale site, Ticketmaster,” Mr Millard said.
“Unless you purchase from WIN Entertainment Centre Ticketmaster Box Office you may risk being in possession of a cancelled ticket and be unable to gain admittance to the WIN Entertainment Centre.
“We have contacted all the schools involved in Southern Stars and asked them to notify families immediately on our behalf.
“We are also appealing to the media, to inform the public, that they should not purchase tickets through any other ticket selling site other than Ticketmaster.
“We really want people to know that when they are searching on line for tickets the first option listed may not be the official ticket seller, and to make sure they search for the official Ticketmaster website.
“With tickets going on official sale this week, there are still many thousands of great tickets to be had and as yet none of the shows are sold out as has been indicated on some on-selling sites.
“We really Southern Stars to be an uplifting and positive experience for all of our patrons, and do not want to see anyone disappointed or deceived by purchasing a ticket from anyone other than Ticketmaster.”
