Powderfinger Farewell Tour Sells Out

Aussie rock band Powderfinger’s status as one of the country’s biggest live drawcards was reaffirmed today May 1 when tickets for its “Sunsets” farewell tour in October went on sale.

More than 140,000 tickets for 13 of 21 advertised shows were snapped up in half an hour, reported Secret Service and Village Sounds.

Dates in 10 cities were snapped up, and second shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth also disappeared in minutes.
Earlier, Powderfinger’s website crashed as fans logged on for presale tickets.

This will be Powderfinger’s first major national tour since the hugely successful Across the Great Divide tour with Silverchair almost 3 years ago.

The band has sold 2.5 million albums in Australia.
