Frontier Touring Company is warning Australia’s Bruce Springsteen fans who missed out on tickets for his forthcoming local tour dates to be patient and to avoid scalped tickets, confirming they’re currently in discussions with the superstar about adding additional dates.
Frontier Chairman Michael Gudinski said in a statement, “The demand for additional shows is absolutely massive and we’re currently in talks with management to determine where it is possible for additional shows to be added in the run. I’m confident that a lot of the markets will secure another show, although at this point I’m unable to confirm if all markets will. There are numerous logistics and availabilities that need to be factored in, but we hope to have this all finalised very soon.
“Fans should be aware that turning to scalpers is not a wise solution. I appreciate that people are concerned they may have missed out on tickets but aside from the sheer cost of some of these tickets, the dangers of purchasing from an unauthorised outlet are considerable and I cannot tell you how many stories I’ve heard of fans being badly burnt by scalpers.
“When you buy tickets from scalpers, often at greatly inflated prices, there is absolutely no guarantee that you are purchasing a legitimate ticket. Some of these sites can look quite official but unless you’re buying from the official outlets of Ticketek or Ticketmaster on this tour, you’re playing with fire.”
All shows except the Sydney and second Melbourne shows have fully sold out on the forthcoming second leg of Bruce’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ tour.
