Final shows in Sydney, Perth & Hobart also sold out!
It has certainly been an overwhelming ride for Powderfinger this morning with a further five shows (Brisbane x 2, Hobart, Sydney and Perth) on the Sunsets Farewell tour selling out.
Today’s sold out shows take the total number of sell outs to 22 across 34 shows with over 250,000 tickets now sold to Powderfinger’s final Australian concerts.
The final ever show at Brisbane’s Riverstage sold out within 60 seconds of going on sale this morning. A further show on Friday, 12 November sold out within 20 minutes with a final concert now on sale for Wednesday 10 November. Tickets to this show are still available from Ticketmaster but are selling fast.
The last ever show in Sydney at Acer Arena also went on sale at 9.00am this morning selling out by lunchtime and the additional Perth show on Wednesday, 22 September sold out within two hours of going on sale.
Fans trying to get tickets to the final Melbourne show at Sidney Myer Music Bowl should hurry - 85% of tickets to the show have been sold!
In Adelaide, the last ever show taking place on Saturday, 30 October, is already 75% sold and any South Australian fans should get in quick to avoid disappointment.
Darren Middleton from Powderfinger said "We're blown away with the sales for this, our last tour, and today’s news certainly catches us by surprise. As usual though, our favourite city has caused us conference call after conference call, with the conversation mostly revolving around 'You're kidding! Sold out already? That's nuts!'. Brisbane, and Australia, we're going to miss the hell out of you".
