Woohoo thanks man :)

Think I'll be safe with the general sale? Did you end up getting Nightrain membership? Doesn't seem to be available now

Nevermind I see there's a presale the day after tomorrow on Ticketek

The presale on the 24th is for Nightrain members I believe. 

I just purchased my nightrain membership now as ticketek & ticketmaster have let me down so many times with sporting and music events here. Will probably only be getting 2 to both Akld & Welly, so frees me up to grab one or two extras if you want me to hook you up. 

Pretty sure you'll be sweet though, its generally only the smaller venues that are gone in moments.

Yeah fuck just realised the Ticketek 24th pre-sale is for Westpac Stadium and I'm wanting to go to Western Springs

That's kind of you mate, where abouts in NZ are you? You think with the general sale I'll still be able to buy good tickets to Western Springs though? I'm thinking of a front or at least 2nd front section ticket

*Panic mode already activated, no turning back* lol

Turns out I might need 2 or 3 tickets(total, slight chance more) actually so I'll let you know ASAP if I'll take you up on your offer and we'll sort it out. Thanks regardless though I really appreciate it man

Yeah there's a few presales you can sign up for on The Rock, The Sound, and More FM, and then there's also the Ticketmaster presale. So four including nightrain before the general sale. 

I reckon if you hit all of these presales I'm sure you'll get the ticket(s) you want before the general sale easy peasy. Western Springs is a big place after all! And I'm sure with the prices it'll take most casual fans a while to save/decide if they're going. If it were just the one date at Western Springs i'd be more worried, but demand should kind of plateau a bit with another stadium gig on the same island! 

You gonna try hit both gigs? Or do any V.I.P package sort of thing?

Thanks for letting me know, I'll sign up for those, signing up for Ticketmaster now. What's the capacity of Western Springs?

Fuck V.I.P. too skint anyway lol. I will try and go to cheap seats in Wellington if possible but transport is probably an issue so likely can't, if I can get good seats to Western Springs I'll be a happy chappy

Just realised the show is 5months away and not as soon as tickets are on sale lol, so who knows, maybe I can go to Wellington cheap seats also

There were 60,000 at Eminem recently. But that was pretty much all GA, I imagine if the configuration is the same as the Aussie tour it will be more like 50,000.

I'm in the exact same boat with the Wellington gig, will be stoked to get a decent spot at Western Springs

Well I hope Wellington can also work out for both of us but yeah we'll be in for a great show in Auckland.

I bet me, you, hudsonsaul(any other kiwis on here?)will be some of the few hardcore fans there and it'll be mostly casuals, hopefully not because they'll shame us in front of the MyGNR team and I usually tear down the shit US crowds lol

Yeah I think in a country with a population like ours casual fans are quite important for stadium gigs like this. Classic Guns are huge here though, majority of The Rock's listeners, for example, will likely consider going - GNR always win the rock 1000. 

Lucky for us, casual fans in NZ like to get extremely fucked up and rowdy so our crowd should look good regardless :)

I don't think Wellington will sell out, or if it does, there will be heaps of room to move about and stuff. Been to a few "sold out" gigs there and it's always no where near full. ACDC is an example.

I'm Auckland based, but got ties to Wellington.

You should be sweet with general sale, so long as you're in early so can pick you're spot(s). I've found with rugby and stuff and it's easier to use your phone and phone network, and not your computer and home/work network. Or do both, but ensure you're only logged in on one and not both (that's poked me in the past).

I'll be grabbing mine tomorrow once presale open, so more than happy to snap you up a few (assuming it allows me to get more than 2 to each show, and in different spots - I'll just be going for standing/pit/whatever its called).

VIP is super pricey, but I've not seen anything on the forums suggesting it's worth it. Could be wrong though.

Prices on Ticketek keep changing ever so slightly, and now the V.I.P options have disappeared so might pay to keep an eye on the most up to date prices before ya hit any pre-sale action :)

Still no prices or map up for Western Springs on Ticketmaster

He VIP package prices are being finalised as we speak

Team, it's probably simple, however I cannot see the price for the vipg pit section? Any ideas as to what package it refers to? 

There were VIP prices up for the Wellington show that I posted above, but have since been taken down.

The VIP pit section is part of the Welcome To The Jungle VIP Pit Experience Package, if that's what you mean? Before the prices were removed it said $700 

hope that helped :)

@cremefraiche @jimisbatman @Appetitefordestruction55 @hudsonsaul

Hey guys (and any other kiwis who see this) I can't currently see the prices for Western Springs because I'm not a Nightrain member so can't view the presale on ticketmaster, can someone who is please tell me urgently the price for 2 tickets in the Premium Terrace General Admission and the price for 2 tickets in the Gold General Admission Standing ??????

Thanks

Wow I am a fucking moron haha. Why is Terrace more than Gold it doesn't seem to have seating and it's further back?

My sister would really like to go but she can't afford it so instead of buying myself a Diamond ticket I'm gonna split what I would have spent on myself and get us both tickets. I'd get us both into Diamond if I could afford to of course.

Fingers crossed they think we're models and upgrade us! lol
