UPDATE 11 FEBRUARY 2013
Due to an overwhelming demand from the Wellington public, promoters of the Rodriguez show in Wellington have decided to move the performance on Saturday the 16th of March from the Wellington Town Hall to TSB Bank Arena.
Peter Noble from Bluesfest Touring has said; " It would be so unfair for the wealth of fans who have missed out on tickets for the sold out Town Hall show. On Rodriguez’s first visit to New Zealand it is incredible to find such a large and enthusiastic audience. We are pleased to have Rodriguez agree to staging his one and only performance in Wellington at the TSB Bank Arena".
The seating configuration as purchased for the Town Hall will be mirrored in the TSB Bank Arena layout with seats held for existing patrons.
Tickets will be exchanged for seats in the new venue. Ticketek will be in touch with current ticket holders either via email or phone to arrange replacement tickets. For all enquiries relating to tickets purchased phone 0800 TICKETEK.
