After a huge response to this morning’s on-sale, all tickets have been snapped up to the Swedish House Mafia’s last-ever Australian show on Saturday 2 February 2013. The stage is set for a spectacular show at Sydney Showground, accompanied by lasers, fireworks, pyrotechnics and flames.

2012 has already delivered a career’s worth of highpoints for Swedish House Mafia. “The most important thing for us is the fans and the people who’ve been supporting us from day one – and the new fans too, the young kids,” Sebastian Ingrosso told inthemix recently. “That people feel that we all made it for the music and that we were real. Because there’s not many bands that get the offers that we get and I’ll tell you now, it’s the biggest companies in the world, the biggest artists in the world. A lot of people want to work with us, and we just say ‘no, we can’t’ because we can’t do anything half done. So I hope they feel that what we’re doing now is from the bottom of our hearts. This isn’t planned, this is no marketing thing. That’s what I hope, at least, comes across.”

To coincide with the final tour, the Swedes also released a mix compilation, Until Now, bringing together selections from the group’s back catalogue, mash-ups, edits and previously unreleased material including the Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash collaboration Reload. As well as Don’t You Worry Child, Until Now features a roll-call of Swedish House Mafia anthems: Greyhound, Knife Party collab Antidote, Miami 2 Ibiza and Leave The World Behind.

ticketmaster are filthy, just wanted to sell all the tickets to get the money not caring for the fact that probably 1/4 of the tickets atleast are in the hands of scalpers

I swear this has to be one of the biggest ticketing f**k ups ever! Ticketmaster site down, phones jammed up, lots of 50 tickets allowed to be purchased at once (that is until ticketmaster changed it to a max of 4 AFTER THEY HAD ALREADY SOLD OUT!!).
Someone has to come up with a way to stop these scalpers doing this. Robs real fans of that chance of seeing artists they like.
Tickets may have sold out, but think of all the tickets that will go unused because scalpers sell for too higher price and no one will buy. Such a waste.

Surely they will do a second show on the Friday night? It's a lot of easy money for 2 hours work.
They're doing 2 shows in Johannesburg

Ticketmaster was crazy. Really badly set up, took me 45 minutes before I finally got tickets. And they should have set the 4 ticket limit so stupid scalpers couldn't get it.

Dont worry everyone, they will be back in 3 years after they get some cred back by releasing and playing real house music. Either that or realise they cant earn as much money.
