There Wasn't Enough Of Lizzo's Juice To Go Around As Thousands Of Aussies Miss Out On Tickets To Her Sydney Opera House Gig
Yep, we here at MTV headquarters had every single browser available, logged on and ready to go to nab our glorious spot to Lizzo’s Opera House gig and you better believe us and 12,000 other Aussies missed out on the beautiful opportunity.
Arguably 2019’s biggest breakout artist is heading to our golden shores for FOMO with two small shows around that – the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne’s The Forum Theatre.
Yesterday, her pre-sale made headlines as 12,000 Sydneysiders tried to access the ticket site for a venue with merely 2,000 seats. Whelp.
Then tune in today and the exact same stats WOWZA.
According to the man himself, Osher Günsberg, her Sydney gig sold out in 14 seconds. Yep, why were we waiting for 30 minutes after the fact…
BLoody hell @lizzo's Sydney show sold out in about fourteen seconds. Damnit.

It’s safe to say that Lizzo could 100% sell out Australian stadiums with that sort of demand so LET’S MAKE THAT HAPPEN PROMOTORS.
Holy shit! I’ve never been to Australia so I ain’t know tix was gonna go so quickly 😰
Love y’all and we’ll do it bigger next time promise! https://t.co/fNs3ARigsX

Already regretting not spending the extra $100 to get the chance to go into the pre presale opera house lotto for @lizzo tix. 2 days of over 12000 people trying to get tix to a venue that seats just over 2000 is so stress inducing haha

Don’t worry, if you’re bashing your computer with frustration, you can still grab yourself a ticket to see her at FOMO, though it won’t be nearly as intimate.
