YESTERDAY: TICKETS to the City of Wanneroo Presents Concert have sold out within hours.
Perth band Birds of Tokyo have proven popular among City residents, with free tickets to the November 4 event at Wanneroo Showground selling out in less than three hours this morning.
While many were thankful for snapping up tickets, others expressed disappointment on social media.
“As a resident of the shire who has never failed to pay rates and who has supported all shire events I feel very let down by the ticket allocation,” one resident said.
“I was on-line on time to no avail. Can’t believe I missed out. Never missed out before,” another resident said.
One person suggested the City needed to find a bigger venue.
The City’s event page said no more tickets would be released.
