McClymonts' concert sells out fast

WHILE most of us were tucked up in bed at 5.45am yesterday, Shez Meyer was standing outside the Grafton District Services Club.

Rather than catching up on some extra sleep, Shez wasn’t going to let anything stop her being first in a long line that stretched well into the club’s car park to buy tickets to The McClymonts’ Grafton show on April 11.

The dedicated fan said she was up at that time so thought she would use the time productively and ensure she got great seats to the now sold out concert.

“I have tickets one to five now so it was worth it,” Shez said.

“I think it is important to support local businesses and local talent. The girls are amazing and I am really looking forward to the night.

“It is one of my friends’ birthdays the day of the concert so I will be giving her a ticket which will hopefully make her day extra special.”

Shez is a keen listener, having bought The McClymonts recently released album, Wrapped Up Good, as soon as it was released.

“My favourite song on the album is Wrapped Up Good and I am planning on taking my album along on the night and getting the girls to sign it,” she said.

Grafton District Services Club general manager Arthur Lysaught said that in the 40 years he has spent in the hospitality and entertainment industry, he has never had such a response.

“This is the first time in a long time we have actually sold tickets to an event and the response was unbelievable,” he said.

“We sold out the entire concert in under an hour. We had 540 tickets and every single one of them is gone.

“If we had a computerised system all of the tickets would have been gone in a matter of minutes. The response we have had for these local girls is nothing short of incredible.”
