Crusty Demons Set Record Sales in Dunedin

Crusty Demons Set Record Sales in Dunedin

The Dunedin stop of next year’s six-stop Crusty Demons Kiwi Carnage Tour has achieved record sales in the first week of the general onsale period.

Crusty Demons promoter Mike Porra said that tickets are selling faster in Dunedin than any previous New Zealand Crusty Demons show.

“Ticket sales are right up there with any show we’ve run anywhere in the world,” Mike said.

“More than 5,000 tickets have been sold in the first week, with another 10 weeks still to go until show day.”

He said the tickets sold in the seven days of sales equate to 50 percent of the total show capacity which is “amazing” this far out from the show.

“The way it is going we expect the show to be sold out well before the event. Anyone thinking about buying a ticket should get in quick.”

Mike said the Dunedin show will be the first stop of the new world tour which then moves on to India, Australia, the USA and Europe.

“The show will be led by world number one freestyle Motocross rider Nate Adams, on his first tour to New Zealand.

“Nate is set to lead an all-star cast of the finest freestyle Motocross riders on the planet.”

He said fans going to the Dunedin show can expect three hours of motorised madness, with the most dangerous tricks in the world, along with quad bikes, a back flipping snow mobile, mini bike chaos, the Crusty Babes and much more.

“We are all looking forward to starting the world tour in Dunedin.

“The House Of Pain is a perfect venue for the show and Dunedin has some crazy people which suits the Crustys down to the ground - we cant wait to get there!”

Tickets are on sale now through TicketDirect or go to for more information.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
