Flight of the Conchords â€“ Wembley Arenaâ€™s first Paperless Ticketâ„¢ show
As Flight of the Conchords share in fansâ€™ dismay at how tickets are being purchased and re-sold at higher prices, they are doing everything they can to try to minimize, if not hopefully eliminate this practice. In that spirit, their 18th May show at Wembley Arena will be the UKâ€™s first comedy show to use Ticketmasterâ€™s Paperless Ticketâ„¢ technology.
With the Flight of the Conchordsâ€™ 25th May, Wembley Arena show selling out within minutes of going on sale, the decision was taken when the second date (18th May) was added to make this event the venueâ€™s first Paperless event to prevent these tickets appearing on the secondary market. This will also be the first Paperless comedy gig in the UK
Ticketmasterâ€™s Paperless Ticketâ„¢ is a choice for those venues and promoters who wish to offer a more secure ticketing option to fans in the primary market. Customers are required to purchase their tickets using a credit card/Visa debit card and to arrive at the venue with same card and a form of photo identification. Their card is then swiped using Ticketmasterâ€™s scanner and the customer given a printed seat locator detailing their seat information. It benefits both the consumer and the venue by allowing secure, smooth and fast entry to the event.
Wembley Arena General Manager John Drury said â€œPaperless Ticket events perfectly suit high profile, instant sell out shows, and so weâ€™re delighted that Flight of the Conchords will be our first one. We knew that this date, which will be the last UK date added to this tour for the Conchords, would be another quick sell out, and weâ€™re pleased that we will be able to help the band keep tickets in the hands of the real fans.â€
Chris Edmonds, Ticketmasterâ€™s Managing Director, said â€œThe Flight of the Conchords wanted to make sure that the tickets got to their fans and to try and prevent any ticket resale activity above face value. Paperless ticketing will meet these requirements. It is another component of our commitment to provide our clients with innovative, secure and fan friendly ticketing solutions for their events.â€

I was also asked to do a poster for the upcoming show that Flight of the Conchords are doing at Wembley. I think itâ€™s certainly the biggest venue iâ€™ve ever produced a poster for.
It was fun to do.
They will be available at the show, if you are lucky enough to be going along, and from http://www.postersandtoys.com afterwards.
Just to let you know that tickets for both Wembley shows have become available.
A4 row 10 on the 18th too!!!!
