What do you mean full price? What could be purchase at 9am before the email is exactly the same price as the new email link.

There are still issues, apparently Sydney tickets aren't working. Nobody has been able to purchase any even after the new email has gone out. This has been managed pretty poorly!

The pre-sale ticket link on the email is exactly the same as the link Jimmy posted. So for those who use that link we should be alright.

Just putting it out there, pre-sale means that you get access to first release tickets first, which means you inevitably get cheaper tickets anyway compared to second, third release etc.

And anyway, if it were "more expensive", I'd still be bloody stoked to see A&B, Bayer and Norin & Rad for $80 (saw Ferry and Shogun last week for $60 and thought that was pretty decent value too), in an arena setting mind you. It's going to be an absolutely quality night!

come to think of it, stereo is 150 or something and there only 3 hrs of joy (for me anyway), 80 is perfect for a night event, indoor old school setting.... n i get the bayer, norin rad & a&b
i just hope to fuking god they play some timeless classics....

Who is even running this event? It seems odd that Above & Beyond facebook and their email seems to be doing everything and stuffing it up. Is it run by Totem?

Sold out wow. How many tickets were on first release? I'm thinking about 1000?

$80 is a little pricey for first release considering something like Creamfields where they were at started at $99 and had was a full festival with heaps of acts, but I guess we don't get these arena shows these days so no comlpaining from me!

Also if that's the case Stereo is amazing value for me, there are so many acts I want to see it's going to be 10 hours of joy with is only $15 per/hour!!

totem rip off is running the event
chris we all have different tastes but stereo is now over priced compared to last year, n i had a blast with who i got to see last yr, how ever, this yr, value for $$ aint there for me coz i only wanna see orjan, patterson n aly fila, every1 else on the bill doesnt do it for me, including dash berlin.
80 is a avg median price for a night gig at hisense, consider armin only 08 as an example, cost me 70 bux i think n it was off the hook,

Given Facebook status updates from Totem last week saying they'd moved the ticket sales from 10am on 25th to 9am on 26th to "ensure the systems can cope with demand", I daresay you guys just got your automated email a day late on the 26th saying that "Tickets go on sale tomorrow" ...meaning today.

Probably explains why the links worked this morning Everyone updated the sale date to 26th September - including Above & Beyond - after an announcement last week?

Either way, good work to those buying up tix early! Smart cookies.

The email we received before the links were sent out actually said Thursday, 27th Sept, not just 'today'. It definitely left a lot of people confused! But luckily my tix were secured before then, this is shaping up to be an awesome intro to arena gigs!

tried to get first release at 9:20am when i had got that email and it said allocation exhausted.

Yeah, but you don't have to pay Hisense price for poor quality food and limited choice of drinks AND you won't have some fuckwit walking through you on the dance floor flexing his muscles

just realised Andrew Bayer is on the line up! Andrew Bayer side show anyone?

I just cant justify paying that amount for a ticket considering its going to be pure cheese when A&B are on. if they were still playing their sound of 8 years ago, I would be at there for sure.

Just to add to the excitement levels leading up to this, and for some awesome tuneage on this awesome sunny day, here are the sets from the three main acts from TATW450 that will be coming Down under in February. A little taste of what we'll be expecting perhaps?

Andrew Bayer (best set of the day by a country mile, his ID track at the end of the set is a barnstormer, also plays an absolutely amazing classic track towards the start of his set)

Norin and Rad

Above and Beyond

Hisense events like GK used to go til 7am, but I get the feeling this wont be the case here. Especially since that 3am licensing rule came in at Melbourne Park. What a killer...

The tix say 9pm till 4am.

But the booze may stop at 3am as Jed mentioned. That's not so bad, drink until 3 then water for the last hr. Less hangover that way!

I think I'm getting old!

Hmm if it's 9-4am then I hope there aren't too many local supports like someone mentioned above. You would hope for 3 hours from Above and Beyond, 90 mins each from Andrew Bayer and Norin and Rad, and maybe an hour from Marlo. That would fill the 7 hours. I'm not fussed about drinks finishing at 3, as long as long as it doesn't risk it closing down early (you'd think not given the ticket prices)

Also if anyone needs tickets l I have 2 extras that I got in pre-sale and no longer need that I'm giving away for purchased price. Sooo inbox me if you want them.
