Warning Issued Over Fake Barnesy Tickets
Jimmy Barnes fans heading to the April 18 gig in Bunbury are being warned over dodgy tickets being sold by unauthorised sellers.
The Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre issued the warning after being flagged that unofficial ticket sellers may not own the Working Class Man Tour tickets they’re on-selling, meaning they could be forged or sold multiple times at inflated prices.
On Wednesday, Paul & Lise gamed out a possible scenario some fans could find themselves in if they came into fake tickets.
“On the night that Barnsey performs, eight people turn up with the same seat,” Paul hypothesised.
“And the first one that gets scanned-in gets the seat but then the next seven are standing there in their Barnsey [and] Cold Chisel gear and you’re not allowed in.”
Tickets bought from an unauthorised seller does not guarantee entry to the event.
BREC Board Chairman Simon Jacob told the Bunbury Mail that tickets.com is BREC’s only authorised ticket agency.
“The safest place to purchase tickets to any event at the venue is via BREC itself. Either online via tickets.com, the BREC website or in person at the box office,” he said.
“If you suspect you have obtained tickets from an unauthorised seller please contact the seller to request a refund immediately.”
Customers concerned about their tickets to the event – which is a sellout - should contact BREC Box Office on 08 97923111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
