Dylan Moran Canberra Convention Centre.

http://www.nccc.com.au/whats-on-canberra-events/dylan-moran/

Dylan Moran’s legendary stand up rants have sold out across the world, cementing this unkempt wordsmith’s reputation as one of the foremost comics of his generation.

Likened to Dave Allen and labelled ‘The Oscar Wilde of comedy’ Dylan is unpredictable, bizarre, elegiac, often cruel but above all painfully funny. Moran sees through the joys and disappointments of human existence with the sensibility and intense perception of a man teetering on the edge. He chews life up and coughs it out…

Really peeved I was not aware of this until now, why is event promotion so crap in this city. For example, Ross Noble is coming back next year, I haven’t seen it advertised anywhere…mind you I have front row seats again as I bought mine about 10 mins after he posted the announcement on Twitter. The only promotion I saw for Chris Cornell was a few posters. I actively seek out things to go to, but still miss stuff. How many people miss out completely. I might start posting event up as I discover them.

BTW, anyone want to sell me two tickets?? I will pay $90 a peice so you make some $$ out of the deal.

Always, always ALWAYS rock up to the venue on the night, even if told that the ticket allocation has been exhausted. 9 times out of 10 the promoter will release additional tickets on the night – these are sold through the box office. Box office staff are only ever told at the last minute if there’s spare tickets, and these are usually great seats (artist or promoter allocation not used so ‘given back’ for sale).

Just sign up to the Ticketek (who handles the Royal Theatre) and Canberra Theatre newsletters, or any of the other venues. Then you usually get access to pre-sales when these events are announced. (Although for Ticketek and Ticketmaster you will be notified of all the Sydney gigs since NSW/ACT is one region.)
