    • Hi Ian,

      We are not ticket sellers for this event and I cannot find any information online about upgrading your ticket for a meet and greet.

      You are best to contact Ticketmaster on 136 100 to talk to a representative who may be able to assist.


  • Hi,

    I am planning to purchase a presale concert ticket for my favourite R&B singer Brandy who is coming to Melbourne on the 21st June (her show schedule that date).

    I know that Ticketmaster does not do choosing seating. I always want a front row seat.

    But which seats that is front row near the stage are they? I am sure front row seats are in Orchestra seating areas, am I right? I really want to get a front seat. I know that presale tickets start tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd May 2016).

    • Hi Ian

      It depends on the show as to whether the “Orchestra Seating” section is used. If there is an orchestra playing, then the front rows will be row ‘A’. If orchestra seating is used, then the front rows will be ‘DD’. It really depends on the concert.

      You are best to check directly with Hamer Hall on (03) 9281 8000 to see which configuration will be used for Brandy’s concert.

      When you purchase your tickets online, make sure you tick “best available” or you could try calling through to an operator who can assist you in getting the best front row seats.

      Enjoy the concert!


  • Hi, I was wanting to take my mum to a show here, she uses a walker as she is disabled, wanting to know where is easiest to park or drop off at venue as she cannot walk far? And how do I go about tickets that seating would suit her, she can manage a normal seat to sit in?

    • Hi Lisa,

      The Hamer Hall is accessible from street level on St. Kilda Road with lifts operating between levels inside the venue. The Arts Centre Carpark also has lifts operating and has disabled parking which is the closest parking you will find to the venue.

      Accessible seating is also available inside Hamer Hall, however you should contact their booking office directly to advise you require an accessible seat when purchasing your tickets. If your mum requires assistance getting throughout the venue, wheelchairs can also be booked through the Information Desk.

      Contact the Disability Access Manager for any further info you require on on (03) 9281 8503.

      Enjoy your show at Hamer Hall!
