With five weeks to go before multiple Grammy Award winner Usher performs live at Orlando Stadium, fans have already snapped up all the available Golden Circle tickets for the Hansa Festival of Legends.
Tickets are still available in all other categories – priced between R215 and R375 – for the March 10 event. “We are seeing strong support from music fans in and around Gauteng, but ticket sales are coming from all corners of South Africa, including Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth,” says John Langford, Big Concert’s Chief Operating Officer.
In addition to seeing Usher perform live, festival goers will also get to see six of South Africa’s top rising urban music stars who will have competed for the chance to open for the RB star next month.
“Hansa’s team of Talent Search Ambassadors has scoured the country since November. Now the choice of the final six is in the hands of the public who can vote for their favourite performers online www.hansapilsener.co.za, or via their mobiles (dial *120*793#),” says Hansa marketing manager Kelebogile Mashigo.
Voting opens on 2 February and closes on 22 February. The six regional winners will be revealed on 24 February. One artist from each region will go on to open for Usher at the Hansa Pilsener Festival of Legends at Orlando Stadium on 10 March.
Festival-goers have been warned to purchase tickets directly from Computicket to avoid counterfeits. “Our security staff are trained in spotting fakes, and even though you might believe you purchased a legitimate ticket from a friend or another website, you could find yourself denied entry into the venue (without a refund), or even arrested for possession of a fake ticket voucher,” Langford said. – Tna reporter
