At the start of July, South Africans were left in a state of pure joy as the Global Citizen Festival announced a truly incredible lineup for its South African concert in December. With Beyonce, Jay-Z and Ed Sheeran and many more, Mzansi was desperate to secure tickets.
With the organisers announcing that tickets could only be earned by carrying out acts to end extreme poverty, South Africans Beyhive members were left a little crushed.
While thousands have taken up the opportunity to give back to earn tickets, Big Concerts revealed on Monday that 30% of the tickets will now be made available for sale.
Yes, you can buy them right now on Computicket. Get ready to pay an absolute premium, though.
With tickets going as high as R4000, the cheapest ticket comes in at R1840.
With tickets divided into seven different categories and two of those already sold out, you better move at a rapid pace if you have the money to fork out for one of them.
“A limited number of tickets are available to purchase from Computicket, at Computicket outlets and all Shoprite & Checkers stores across the country. Click here to buy your tickets now.”
“70% of tickets will be given out for free in exchange for taking action on health, food and nutrition, education, gender equality, and water and sanitation, starting 21 August,” Big Concerts said in a statement.
