Don't wait till the last minute Rocky

ROCKHAMPTON'S Midnight Oil fans have been advised to get in quick and not wait till the last minute to get tickets.

Such is the pulling power of the iconic Aussie band - 100,000 pre-sale tickets were sold across the country last week - Rocky will have to buck their 'last minute' trend.

Ahead of their first world tour in 20 years, a special gig is planned at the Great Western Hotel on October 12.

Frontier Tours promoter Rick Szabo has done plenty of Rockhampton shows and enthused locals not to wait.

"Rocky people like to wait for the last week,” he said.

"But they do not have the luxury this time.

"The pulling power of the band and their long hiatus. Get in early for this one.”

Tickets to all 14 shows in their North America tour are already sold out completely while their London show sold out in minutes.
