Local fans in a flap as Birds of Tokyo tickets go on sale

BIRDS of Tokyo sent Gladstone music fans into a flap on Monday as tickets for the popular band's February show at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre went on sale at 9am.

With more than 100 tickets sold on the first day, GECC marketing manager Garry Hansen said he expected the show to sell out quickly.

Big acts on the way with entertainment centre drawcard

Since unofficially opening on November 5, Mr Hansen said the entertainment centre had had a lot of support from the community.

"In 26 days we've had 7000 people come through the centre," he said.

Birds of Tokyo is the first major act to play at the GECC, supported by local band Epidemic Over and Chasing the Jeffrey from Mackay.

Tickets can be purchased through the GECC Box Office on 4972 2822 until Wednesday, or via www.gladecc.com.au.
