Twickets launches in Australia

By | Published on Friday 26 May 2017


Twickets has officially launched its face value ticket exchange in Australia, having opened an office in the country in January.

The new site launches in partnership with Eddie Sheeran, who has made it the official resale platform for his sold out Australian tour. Also hooking up with Twickets for Australian shows are Stormzy, Rag N Bone Man, Sigur Rós, DJ Shadow and Laura Marling.

Live company Frontier Touring will also work with Twickets. Its COO, Dion Brant, said in a statement: “The last excuse used by scalping sites to justify their existence is that they ‘provide a service to legitimate fans stuck with unwanted tickets’. We know this is really a cover for misleading and dishonest profiteering at the expense of fans and artists. Partnering with Twickets to provide a service where real fans can sell unwanted tickets in a transparent and fair way removes all legitimacy from other resale sites”.

As previously reported, the Australian branch of Twickets is being headed up by former Head Of Ticketing at Global Live in the UK, Danny Hannaford. He said yesterday: “It is great to get this venture off the ground in Australia. We have had many exciting conversations with promoters, managers and ticketing companies, and are very pleased to have Frontier Touring and so many exciting artists on board. We look forward to announcing more in the coming weeks”.
