Fans flock to buy tickets for Lee's Cliffs shows

First published in Echo News

TICKETS for TV comic Lee Mack's Southend shows sold out within 48 hours  ̶ even though the funnyman won't be on stage there for more than a year.

The star of the BBC One sitcom Not Going Out and panel show, Would I Lie to You? even added a third Cliffs Pavilion date to his tour schedule when ticket sales went mad.

The Hit the Road Mack tour is his first in four years and will be at the Cliffs, in Station Road, Westcliff, in December of next year.

Theatre director, Ellen McPhilips, said: “We are delighted to continue our run of high profile, hugely popular artists coming to Southend by adding Lee Mack to our line up.

“Although all three dates are now sold out, we do have some tickets released from time to time so it is always worth checking the website.

“The Cliffs Pavilion has a reputation in the industry as a great venue which delivers great audiences.

"This reputation allows us to go from strength to strength when securing the best artists and shows possible for Southend.”

Mack is at the Cliffs on December 4, 5 and 6, 2014.

How can the performances be 'sold out' if the venue continues to release tickets 'from time to time'

if they are holding tikets back, it can't be sold out !

Also, when i went on the site at 9.00am last friday (the official release time), over 90 percent of the seats for Thursday and friday had been marked as unavailable . . . . tickets were only available to purchase 'online' so how come so few seats were available at the very moment tickets went on sale ???

Very fishy . . .

There are reasons why tickets come on sale from time to time after they are all sold out.
Considering that the shows are quite a long way into the future, some people who bought tickets find their circumstances change and are unable to attend the show and return their tickets. These are then resold.
Also, the artiste or theatre may have seats set aside for invited guests. Again, nearer the time tickets for these seats may also become availabe if they are no longer needed.

You must be doing something wrong if you can earn $90 an hour easily, but you are only earning $85 an hour.
