Computicket has been keeping people updated as to what is happening with the bookings on Tuesday via their Twitter account. According to Computicket, "the system has not crashed, it is now a queuing system and delays can be expected due to the high volume of site usage".

Their latest update reads as follows: "The #LadyGagaSA queue timer has been disabled to avoid confusion. The timer was merely a estimate based on the max possible time for booking".

Big Concerts also posted the following on their Facebook page on Tuesday: "A quick update for you... Based on the current load, we anticipate processing between 7 000 and 9 000 tickets per hour. Currently there are 38 000 people in the queue to purchase tickets."

Many South African 'monsters' have already bought their Lady Gaga tickets hassle-free and shared their delight on Twitter.
