Wiggles tickets stolen during car break-in
A STACK of tickets to The Wiggles concert in Gladstone in July have been stolen after a car in South Gladstone was broken into.
The 17 tickets, valued at $512, were taken from the unlocked vehicle while it was parked on Ouston Place.
Gladstone police have informed Gladstone Entertainment Centre of the theft.
Acting manager performing arts Michael Bloyce said the centre had been asked to call police if anyone phoned asking for a refund on the tickets.
"It's possible they may also try and resell the tickets online or via Facebook," Mr Bloyce said.
"It's definitely an issue for us. We could end up with double ups, with the people who originally bought the tickets turning up, and the people who bought the on-sold tickets turning up."
Mr Bloyce said the centre was aware of which tickets had been stolen because of seat numbering, and anyone turning up with the tickets - other than the original owner - would have some questions to answer.
"We'll be asking questions. We have a record of the name of the lady who bought them," Mr Bloyce said.
The original purchaser is still able to attend the concert.
"The woman who had them stolen is not to blame," Mr Bloyce said.
Tickets to The Wiggles concerts on July 4 have been selling fast, with two shows selling out just through word of mouth.
A third show is still on sale, and is also expected to sell out.
An unknown offender entered the unlocked vehicle, which was parked on Ouston Place.
Also stolen from the car was $280 in cash and various bank cards.
