For Any Interested Lunatic:
I have a ticket to Wed, March 23rd show. It is one single ticket, Stalls, Row V. I am not looking to make money on it and am willing to sell it at it's face value (without the service charge, etc.).
I will be at the pre-show gathering at The Swan on Wed 3/23 and will have the ticket with me (if I don't sell it before then).
If anyone is interested, please PM me here.
In the meantime, I'm in the midst of packing and making some family visits before departing on Friday, 3/18. I'm hoping that my luggage is not over the limit - it's really tough squeezing in the goat . . . but I must take him because as Peter has written . . .
"My goats like to travel . . ." :-]

I bought presale tickets for both shows, and didn't get bumped up for either show. Oh well. I believe it was only for those seats that they ended up needing for sound board or something like that. I'll be on a plane the day after you Pat, and will see you in London!

Hi here is the response I got from ticket master.
Thank you for your email.
I can confirm that a small number of customers were reseated, however this was due to production changes and was beyond Ticketmasters control. I'm sorry but we are unable to offer a reseat to all customers.
.well I guess some of us will be stuck in BB. anyone else in BB for the Thursday night.hell we can call ourselves the ripped off club!!!

I was just looking with interest at a fan pre-sale for a Ryan Adams concert. The pre-sale wasn't offering any of the stalls seats. only circle and gallery (even further away) seats came up. Just goes to show that it's not just Peter's tickets that are being cheekily distributed this way!
On another note, I managed to sell my two extra tickets on eBay and was delighted to have recouped some of my money! But as a conscientious seller I'm hoping someone can give me so advice:
The two tickets I sold were HMV tickets that you print out and on them it said "You will also need the debit/credit card you used to purchase your ticket". The people who bought my ticket won't have this and I have offered to be there when they go in the venue or give them my number but they didn't reply. They did pay me though. Do you think they will really get asked for the credit card? I doubt it - as I haven't given the tickets to anyone else and they have bar codes on - but (as I'm a massive worrier!) I'm worrying for them that in the event they should be asked they won't be able to get in! That would be awful! What you think?

I cant see that being an issue, they will just scan the tickets and away they will go.
out of interest, how much did you get for the 2 tickets. I have got 2 on there, and im not getting a sniff

Thanks for easing my nerves somewhat
As for my tickets, well they eventually sold for Â£94 not including the fees I had to pay. Though I've lost 50+quid, oh well, that's a days-wages I can live with. I really didn't want to have to try selling them at the venue because I'm meeting a friend beforehand who I'll be staying and going with.
My auction had about 8 watchers. There were five bids - four of those came in the very last minute! All were from different bidders. So yours might go down to the wire too. I put the tickets up for 7 days, no reserve but starting bid of 60quid. Hope that helps.

Thanks, it helps a lot.
I've got 5 watchers so far on mine, I initially put them with a starting bid Â£75 and got not a sniff, so I've relisted at a lower start bid but with a reserve. If I cant get shot of them i'll just put it down to "one of those things". Not going to let it worry me now.
Its nearly time to enjoy the show!! wahooo!!!

I remember last year at the O2 in London, I had an extra ticket and naively believed it would be easy to find someone looking for one at the entrance before the event, just as it is for instance in Bercy. I hope it'll be easier at the Appolo but I've never been there.
I wonder if it's a cultural difference or if it is just because the O2 is so big that it wasn't fully booked.
On smaller venues in the U.K., is it usual to see people selling tickets in front of the venue before the show?

Managed to sell my last 2 tickets on eBay. Went for half price which considering how close we are to the show, Im happy to get something back!!!!

Nice one Mark. Which seats are you in on 24th? I'm G31-32
prickespons22 March 2011 at 1:17pmPosts: 109 (0 today)Status: offline
Im in G 11-12. Cant wait now!!!
Del22 March 2011 at 6:56pmPosts: 53 (0 today)Status: offline
Well we are stuck at the back in BB and thats pre sale!!!
I have no idea how you guys got row G, I have been on ticket shyster site every day (sometimes several times a day), and the best I have seen was in row R.
Ah well I suppose being there is the main thing, but I am still angry about the ticket allocation. Perhaps we should try and suggest to Real World that a different method should be available to us lunatics to get the tickets/seats that we crave.
See you all on Thursday.right at the back.

I still like Pat's suggestion that Peter could perform a couple of songs from the back Go on Pete, break convention for unlucky pre-salers!
Del22 March 2011 at 8:02pmPosts: 53 (0 today)Status: offline
Yeah I like the idea that BB is in fact really row B!
