8 ways not to miss the hottest concert tickets of the year

IT'S about to get all hot and steamy up in here, with arguably the hottest tickets of the year going on sale tomorrow.

RnB super act Nelly is coming to Brisbane and bringing a swag of heavy hitters with him, including TLC, Mya, Montell Jordan, Backstreet, Blu Cantrell, Dante Thomas, Fatman Scoop, Kevin Lyttle and DJ Horizon.

But what we want to know is: how can you guarantee tickets to an event that is likely to sell out in minutes?

We've compiled a list of the best ways you can make sure you're front and centre - no diggity.

1. Register an account before it's ticket time. Some ticket sites will ask you to create an account. This can be done in advance and save you time so you only need to log in and won't need to spend time creating a profile.

2. Create a word or note pad file with your credit card number and other payment information so you can quickly copy and paste without having to type numbers out.

3. Download ticket buying apps if you can. Many have free iPhone and Android apps. 

4. Once it's sold out, check sites like eBay or even Gum Tree for tickets that are not wanted. Tickets should be sold at a similar price to the purchase price.

5. Join fan clubs or band pages beforehand in case of special early bird ticket releases. It's believed up to 64% of concert tickets get sold in this way.

6. Don't use public wi-fi as it can be slower than at home or work.

7. Make a pact with your friends that whoever gets in first buys tickets for the rest. Don't be a lone wolf.

8. Do some recon of the venue so you know exactly what section or area you'll be in and won't be disappointed when the musos look like ants from your posse.

And lastly, if I don't get a ticket tomorrow and you do, I'm coming for you.
