Elton John fans were out in force to try and nab tickets to his show at Napier's Mission Estate Winery - even Bruce's mum Vicky...
Many of them missed out on tickets in a ticketing blunder and Elton fans are fuming on Facebook - like this comment from Maree Tolley:
I am totally seething - 2 hours and nothing.
But others had a different intention:
I've got ten tickets for the Napier gig. Not a great fan so will be Christmas presents or will flick them off.
What a tragedy.
