Committed AC/DC Fans Camp Out On Brisbane Street To Buy Tickets For Next Year's Concert

May 24, 2009

Scott Casey of Australia's reports: Committed AC/DC fans spent an uncomfortable night camping out on Elizabeth Street to buy tickets for next year's Brisbane concert.

First in line was Carol Ranger who, along with 22-year-old daughter Pagen, had camped out since 11:00 a.m. yesterday [Sunday, May 24] for the tickets, which went on sale at 9:00 a.m. today [Monday, May 25].

"I've grown up with AC/DC its always been part of my life," Pagen Ranger said, something her mother confirmed.

"My children had no choice," Carol said.

"I've been a fan since they started back in the 1970s but I've never had a chance to go to a concert."

Equipped with sleeping bags, chairs and a portable stove, Leanne Fordham and Saxon Green from Crestmead looked more like they were camping in the bush than sitting outside a shopping centre in Brisbane's CBD.

"We came in on Saturday not sure when the queue would start and we slept in the car across the road for the night and then when we saw everyone arrive we came over and joined the queue," Fordham said.
