BLISS N Eso’s Coffs Harbour concert is shaping up as one of the most successful recent local events in terms of ticket sales.

“On the first day, we sold more than 500 tickets, so that was pretty good – especially with all the doom and gloom around at the moment,” said event promoter Shane Seccombe of Offbeat Operations.

“It’s the best-selling event to hit Coffs. In just over a week of sales, we’ve outdone any other concert here I can think of.”

In nine days of ticket sales, around 1500 tickets have been sold for the show, while other ‘Running on Air’ tour locations have sold out.

Considered by many to be Australia’s leading hip-hop artists, Bliss N Eso’s Melbourne and Sunshine Coast 5000 capacity venues have sold out.

“Sydney and Hobart are now on final sales, so it’s only Brisbane, Mount Gambier and Coffs yet to sell-out,” Mr Seccombe said.

Earlier, he spoke to the Advocate of hopes for 7000 people attending the Coffs Harbour Showground concert on the June long weekend.

“I don’t think we’re going to get to 7000, although we’re probably a good quarter of the way there,” he said.

Offbeat Operations plans to erect the stage on the showground soccer fields.

“If it goes above 4000, then we’ll move it to the main arena,” Mr Seccombe said.

“We’ve got a couple of big surprises coming up on the production side. They’ve got a couple of tricks up their sleeve.”
