Unable to get Chevelle Tickets – Computicket/Hilltop Live bugger up

Social networks are abuzz with complaints of people not being able to get themselves the Chevelle tickets they have been desperately awaiting.

The tickets were supposed to be available at 9am 3 April 2013, aka today. At 9:10am there was still no sign of it.
While typing this post I was on the line to computicket who confirmed the JHB tickets were now available but not Cape Town as yet… They couldn’t tell me when Cape Town would be up.

Well a bit of drama, but I’m sure it will all be resolved shortly. Lately Computicket really hasn’t been doing themselves any favours, with the lack of support and cock ups like these. It’s a wonder why organizers don’t use other providers such as ticketweb etc who I have never had a problem with.

Here is the event link so far

Chevelle due to visit South Africa

Chevelle? makes the promised comeback! See them on their two stop Arena tour in May and June 2013.

Hilltop Live presents, the Platinum-selling alternative act Chevelle Live in SA in association with Monster Energy and Sounds Good. The American rock trio will be rocking Cape Town at the Grand Arena, GrandWest on Friday 31 May, and Johannesburg at The Big Top Arena, Carnival City on Sunday 2 June, bringing their iconic alternative sound to your ears.

Living up to the postponement promise that was made back in 2011 when the band was unable to make it to Oppikoppi Unknown Brother, the band is thrilled to finally have found dates that work for South Africa.

For Chevelle, 2012 was filled with intense touring, sold out concerts and the release of their sixth full-length album Hats Off to the Bull: which scored the group one of their biggest career hits with the explosive single “Face to The Floor”. Most artists with over 12 years in the music industry lose their initial fire, but Chevelle burn brighter than ever on Hats Off to the Bull. Rather than simply subscribing to a tried-and-true formula, they made a conscious effort to incorporate new sounds and textures into their patented airtight anthems. As a result, the group composed its most infectious, intriguing, and impressive offering to date. In December 2012 the group released their first-ever collection of hits – Stray Arrows-A Collection Of Favourites

Of their postponement announcement in 2011 Chevelle said “Obviously everyone is really disappointed; there was such enthusiasm and support from all over South Africa and it’s a country we all wanted to see. But we will get there soon.” – soon has become now.

Limited tickets are available from Computicket at 09:00 on April 3rd, act now and avoid disappointment.
