Beware Of Unauthorised Ticket Sellers For One Direction Concert

Patrons purchasing tickets to next February’s One Direction concert in Brisbane have been warned not to buy from re-selling websites and unscrupulous operators.

Suncorp Stadium General Manager, Alan Graham said today that he had been made aware of people paying inflated prices for tickets to the concert through well-known auction websites and other unauthorised sites.

“While Queensland has some of the toughest anti-scalping ticket laws in the world, some of these operators are difficult to track down because they work only through the web. People dealing with unauthorised agents risk never see any tickets or their money again.”

Mr. Graham reminded patrons that any tickets purchased at more than 10% of their face value also risked being cancelled by the venue. 

Suspected cases of ticket scalping should be directed to the Queensland Police Service. Both buyers and scalpers of tickets faced fines of up to $2,000 and the cancellation of tickets. 

“The only way people can be assured of paying the correct prices and actually receiving their tickets was through the venue's official ticketing agent, Ticketek.

Tickets can be purchased via telephone (13 2849), online ( or through the 24 Ticketek agencies spread throughout south-east Queensland.
