Tickets are available through Ticketek and a quick way to load the website is through the mobile site.

The Ticketek website experienced delays today with the demand for tickets, but it appears the majority of punters have been able to secure tickets.

That hasn't stopped scalpers moving in as tickets to the tour begun appearing on online auction websites just minutes after they were on sale. They are currently listed for up to double the price for certain sections of seating.

Last week tour co-promoter Garry Van Egmond told that they couldn't stop scalping while there was no federal legislation against it.
