Last In Get Best Seats at Elton John Concert

Lucky Changes Make Best Seats Available at the Lowest Price!

With Saturday Nights ‘Candles by Candlelight’ community concert in Wellington’s Westpac Stadium, acting as a test run for the stage setup for the Elton John Concert, promoters Capital C: Concerts were able to gain additional seating in a previously marginal area of the venue.

Promoter Phil Sprey said that the ‘hold seats’ were marked as very restricted but by this strange twist of fate were now potentially the best seats in the house. With Elton sitting slightly off-centre and behind a piano , he will face directly toward the block of seats concerned and provide an ‘eye-contact’ with those who are first in from today to take advantage of this lucky opportunity.

‘We had originally marked these seats as the cheapest on the day and we aren’t going to re-price them’ says Sprey. ‘Christmas is coming soon and lets say some people will get an early present on us’.

Elton John is at the Westpac Stadium Wellington this Wednesday Dec 6. Tickets, including the ‘lucky ones’ are on sale at Ticketek.

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.
