Reece Mastin madness set for Napier

Ticketek outlets are expecting a flood of Reece Mastin fans to descend on them as tickets to the X-Factor heart-throb's Napier concert go on sale from 9am tomorrow.

Pre-sale tickets to the Pettigrew Green Arena show on April 16 were made exclusively available to Ticketek members yesterday with 500 selling in the first hour.

The 3000 capacity Napier arena looked set to fill up quickly, event co-promoter Brent Eccles said.

"Tickets went on sale for shows in Auckland and Wellington and they just went crazy," he said.

"We expect the same when the tickets go on sale to the general public in Napier tomorrow."

Hawke's Bay fans were lucky to land Mastin, after he added a Christchurch concert to the bill and his manager announced he would be able to fit in one more show.

"I just looked at the map and thought Napier was a good central location," Mr Eccles said.

"You can get people from Hastings, Gisborne, and Palmerston North so that's what we went with."

Mastin is the latest winner of X-Factor Australia, and at just 17-years-old already has a huge following here and across the ditch.

Teenage fans were left disappointed after his recent promotional visit to New Zealand when a Hamilton concert and signing with the singer had to be cut short because young girls started fainting.

Tickets start at $57.90, plus fees.
