Big Grin Advice for buying tickets

Hello every body!! I hope this is the right place to post probably a bit late too but anyways. I missed out on buying tickets for the first show in Melbourne because I thought buying online would be easy. No. So now tickets for the second show (YAY!) go on sale tomorrow at 9.00 and my mother and I have decided to line up for tickets. So tonight were camping out in order to be there ready, early and have a good spot in-line. I just need some advice or help suggestions ideas from people on whether that's a good idea to do be doing that so early or if anyone else will be doing so at Broadmeadows shopping center or anywhere else in Melbourne. I'm a bit nervous about it, I don't know why but I've never had to do anything like this and Broadmeadows isn't the best area. Thank you!

-Nikki

Thank you! Just GA because that's really what I wanted, my mum told me I was going seating, then found out the price for good seating and said no, it's GA for you. So how did every one else go??

i got to highpoint at 7.30am, got 20th in line and got my 8 GA's. Drove past windy hill there was 60+ people in the line at 7am! madness! Hardly anyone was at highpoint. The line moved really fast as they had 3 computers this time...was great!

Congrats on getting tickets!

I thought all you'd get out of that is a crate to sit on outside the stadium.
