If you didn’t know, McBusted is opening for One Direction on all their Australian dates and to top if off, McBusted is playing 2 side shows in Sydney on 22 February 2015 at the Metro Theatre and in Melbourne on 24 February 2015 at the Palais Theatre.
You guys don’t know this but there have been efforts to try to get McBusted to play in Singapore but it didn’t work out. So, that said, since McBusted is not coming to Singapore, I am heading down to Melbourne.
And in case you didn’t realise, McBusted = McFly + Busted (minus Charlie Simpson). I loved Charlie Simpson and his bushy eyebrows.
Anyway, back to the point, the tickets for the Sydney (free standing) and Melbourne (numbered seating) shows are priced at A$60. So after fees and taxes and all, I was charged A$67.something… and if you convert it back into Singapore dollars, it’s around S$71~$72. I literally cried at that price. Even if the McBusted Singapore show worked out, the tickets would have been more than $100 per ticket.
If you are interested to get tickets to watch McBusted in Sydney or Melbourne, you can use these links: Sydney (Ticketek), Melbourne (TicketMaster AU). The TicketMaster AU website is quite crappy and the links to the McBusted show doesn’t work properly when you search.
If you are crazy enough like me to fly down to either Sydney or Melbourne, I’d actually recommend going to Sydney because of the convenience of public transport within town but during that travel period, because it is around Chinese New Year, the flight to Melbourne is cheaper.#justsaying
I have also heard that tickets are already floating around in the black market at 3 times the face value of the ticket price. Don’t be dumb and buy those. It is never worth paying beyond $50 above the face value of the ticket price on the black market. Anything more is unscrupulous. Don’t give in to those assholes.
