SA Bieber tickets break records, hearts

2012-12-12 11:51
Cape Town - More than 50 000 tickets for Justin Bieber's Cape Town performance in May 2013 were sold in less than an hour on Tuesday, reports IOL.

According to the article, Computicket's upgraded online purchasing system made the record-breaking sales possible.

The new system can reportedly process 6 000 online transactions each minute.

Justin Bieber himself took to Twitter to rejoice at the news:


Due to a higher demand than anticipated, Big Concerts made 1 000 extra tickets available for the Cape Town show and more than 6 000 extra tickets were allocated for Johannesburg fans.

However, many fans were left heartbroken when they were not being able to secure a Golden Circle ticket, as those tickets for both venues sold out in mere minutes online.

Tickets were also available for purchase on the Big Concerts website as well as at Computicket outlets.

Justin Bieber will perform in South Africa at the Cape Town Stadium on 8 May 2013 and at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 12 May 2013.

    I don't love Bieber, better stay at home with my family.

    Most of Justin Bieber's concerts are free because nobody is willing to pay for it.

    Big Concerts unfair play! I tried to buy ANY tickets at computicket for over 2 hours, but no tickets were available. Then I went to the big concerts website and within minutes I managed to buy 6 tickets in exactly the section I wanted. THE TRICK - BIG CONCERTS CHARGED AN EXTRA R60.00 PER TICKET. SHAME ON YOU BIG CONCERTS!

      It was a convenience fee that they charged. One friend spent 2 hours on Computicket to try and buy 2 x R375 tickets. Another spent 2 minutes on the Big Concert's website and paid R375 for tickets in the same area as where the Computicket one tried to get. No price difference, in fact one had wasted TWO hours of her time.

      Get your facts straight. Big Concerts show the fee, Computicket doesn't. The prices are exactly the same.

  • Robert Frankol - 2012-12-12 13:23

    I wouldn't watch this moron if it were free...

  • yolandansimbi - 2012-12-12 13:36

    I find this totally unacceptable! I don't UNDERSTAND!

  • grant.logan.94 - 2012-12-12 14:14

    Not everyone has the same taste in music. I would rather listen to him sing then listen to noise such as Linkin Park. At least Justin has some "flavour". I'm sure those people who bought tickets to his show will enjoy every minute of it.
