'ODT' subscribers snap up tickets

Otago Daily Times subscribers have been quick to secure tickets to the "Big Night In" community concert at Forsyth Barr Stadium on November 12.

Subscribers were entitled to enter a preferential ballot for tickets, but demand had far exceeded supply, ODT circulation manager James Smith said yesterday.

"We've been absolutely amazed at the response.

"Unfortunately, up to 600 subscribers are going to miss out," he said.

"Anyone who hasn't received their tickets in the post by Tuesday should presume they have been unsuccessful in the ballot and immediately get tickets from the stadium or Otago Daily Times regional offices."

Public tickets will be available from Tuesday at the stadium and ODT offices in Wanaka, Queenstown, Alexandra, Balclutha, Oamaru and Mosgiel, and The Ensign office in Gore.

The community concert will feature an all-star line-up of some of New Zealand's most popular singers, including Tina Cross (Auckland), Jackie Clarke (Auckland), Ainslie Allen (Wellington), Chris Fennessy (Brisbane), Paul Ross (Auckland) and Chris Crowe (Wellington), performing with more than 40 regional singers and dancers.

Entry is by free ticket only.

Gold-coin donations will be accepted at the gate for the KidsCan charitable trust and Lions Club.
