U2 Tickets Not Available Through Postshops


U2 Tickets Not Available Through Postshops

New Zealand Post announced today that, in consultation with Ticketmaster and Michael Coppel Presents, it would not be selling tickets during Monday’s sale for the second and final U2 concert to be held on 18 March 2006.

While the New Zealand public was able to purchase tickets to the initial concert in PostShops throughout the country, the on-sale date for the second concert falls on one of the busiest days for the New Zealand Post retail network.

Stephen Henry, General Manager of Enterprises at New Zealand Post, said that with Monday being the closing date for all airmail parcels to Australia and the South Pacific, the network was already bracing itself for one of the heaviest days of the year.

“Christmas is an extremely busy time for our PostShops. With high demand leading to a second concert and the on-sale date being announced as Monday, we are simply unable to act as a channel for the U2 tickets.”

Mr Henry said it was through consideration for all parties concerned – customers wanting to get their Christmas parcels away and those wanting to purchase U2 tickets – that New Zealand Post had made the decision.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause U2 fans, but believe this decision will lead to a less frustrating experience for them. With our PostShop network already anticipated to be busy, they can concentrate on Ticketmaster’s other channels of website (www.ticketmaster.co.nz) and phone (0800 111 999), as well as Real Groovy and some selected Rebel Sports stores to purchase tickets.”

ENDS

Note: Ticketmaster’s website is http://www.ticketmaster.co.nz (information about where to purchase tickets on Monday is outlined on the website, and tickets themselves will be available through the website from Monday morning at 9am). Tickets and information will also be available through Ticketmaster’s freephone – 0800 111 999.
