I knew the visa pre-sale for Red Hot Chili Pepper tickets would be popular but this is ridiculous!

I started at http://www.visaentertainment.co.nz I got to the site http://www.ticketmaster.co.nz/promo/wbismv the site became unresponsive at 9am when tickets went on sale.

I got on at 9:01 am and got to the screen to choose my tickets… woot!

Problem #1

The form let you purchase upto 50 tickets in one go!

(I chose 2 tickets)

Problem #2

There was no indication of how many tickets were for sale and when they had sold out!

I select 2 general admission tickets seated anywhere…

After responding to the “cryptic code” to stop robots buying tickets I got this friendly message.

I proceeded to try every combination of tickets for every seating option to find the same result in all.

Good to see there were actually some tickets… they turned up on Trade Me at $600 each.
