Who’s got the tickets?

I got mine today! It took an hour cos the captcha failed and I was in near tears trying to make it work! Thankfully DH accessed computer remotely and fixed it. But I did lose my mega awesome seat spots :(

ETA: the virtual waiting room had me waiting behind 14,000 people. Can you imagine in the old days lining up for the tickets with that many people 😂

I was about 28600 in the queue!!  I actually ended up not buying :-( because by the time I got through there were only the expensive tickets left and for a family of 4 it was going to cost a ridiculous amount.

I tried. I was 40,000th in the queue. By the time I got to the front, I could only get tickets for March onward and they would cost me $900 for me and my 2 kids. So I didn't buy them. :(

Whoa 40,000?! I must have lucked out. And I was thinking it was crap, I’m sorry you missed out :(

Has anyone seen a date range? I’m trying to find out how long it runs for so a group of 5 of us can work out when we can all get to Melbourne together

Yeah, I had no chance of getting them and liek PP by the time I got anywhere near my email, I had one saying they were sold out - try again Wednesday!

I still don't like my chances ...

I tried but missed out.  Had my two very expensive VIP tickets in my basket and the website kicked me out.  When I got back in, the message was that there were no tickets left.  

Waiting for Wed to do it all again!  This time I'll be waiting to log in at 11!

I scored position 6 754 bang on noon. The ticket selection was really frustrating because I couldn’t see what was available. Nothing ever came up in dress circle which is what I wanted. We ended up stalls, middle row H so I am over the moon and wildly excited.

fingers crossed you're not waiting too long! I was 13,399 and I got Jan show seats in the stalls. it took an hour to get there. So you shouldn't be longer than 20-30 mins!

I was in the queue for an hour on Monday but still got great seats. I am BEYOND excited.

Currently the message says: Best available performances from June onwards

I'm hoping there is still some left for earlier than that. It will be the kids' main Christmas present.

ETA - on second thoughts, I'm imagining the release today is going to be just from June on. I'll see whats available for the June long weekend or school holidays in July, otherwise might try my luck with the general release next week.
