People Get Ready – Vodafone Fantastic Fridays gets you first in line for Rockin’ Rod

Hot on the heels of an exclusive pre-sale for Lorde, Vodafone customers who are fans of legendary artist Rod Stewart will have 48 hour access to exclusive pre-sale tickets for his New Zealand ‘The Hits’ tour.

This exclusive music offer is part of Vodafone Fantastic Fridays, a loyalty programme launched last month which rewards Vodafone customers and connects them to things they love – like music. Vodafone pre-sale Rod Stewart tickets are available from midday on Monday 8 September until middayWednesday 10 September.

Vodafone Consumer Director, Matt Williams, says Rockin’ Rod’s tour provides another exciting opportunity to thank customers for choosing Vodafone.

“With Fantastic Fridays, we’re offering an incredible range of movie, music and sports experiences, and fantastic Prepay Deals. Our customers scrambled at the chance for pre-sale Lorde tickets last month, and we know Rod Stewart’s catalogue of timeless hits is just the ticket for our second major exclusive music offer.”

Rod Stewart will play two concerts – Vector arena in Auckland, and Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Matt adds: “From the biggest concerts to some of the hottest movies and sporting events, we’re bringing exclusive offers across a range of experiences. You simply need to be a Vodafone customer to access them.

“We know this is going to be a sell-out tour, so Vodafone customers can register online at for the opportunity to get in early to buy tickets.”
