I have B, Row 15 - 5 and 6 for the first night and I swear I bought them within 3 minutes of the sale ... OK I guess .. just a pity that there was no chance to actually see which seats we were going to get!

edit - sounds like I am 15 rows from the front, which is pretty much what I predicted. Darn, shoulda remembered to be at computer one hour ahead of UK time! :D
Yes, Row 15, seats 1 and 2. In block B that means right next to the center aisle, so perfectly in the center.

I think I bought our 3 tix for August 12th in the first minute of the presale - got row 9
though not really bad, still not happy with the result
wonder, when and to whom the first rows went
fully second Paul about paying high priced tix and not being able to see what one buys on the purchase

It evens itself out and these are still reasonable tickets ... but if we could see the seating plan and chose seats it would greatly add to the transparency of the process. For Ghent, but even more so for some of the other venues, the top price tickets really range from some of the best seats to some fairly average seats in my view. I was rather optimistic regarding Ghent because I saw there were about 70 people on the forum waiting for the link which would fill the first 3 rows or so if the seats had been allocated the way they were for. let's say, Verona. STill, a decent seat for the first concert of the tour, made easy by the Forum, so it's more than ok.

I am always grateful to be member of this forum and I did express my gratitude to the operators in many posts.
If i cricticise the ways of ticket sellers/tour operators I am fully aware that not Jarkko and friends are to blame (and not only Gent, but also other venues the ticket purchasing did not run so smoothly this time).
The Gent purchase was made easy by the forum, yes, but also by me paying 100 € a ticket.
As you say yourself I could realistically expect to buy seats in the first three rows (and I am not sure if had bought seats row 9 knowingly for that price).
That is the point, one should be able to know what one buys at the time of purchase, not getting the surprise a week later.
But still you are right, row 9 are decent seats, and I look forward to the concert.

Harald, I think we agree 100% on this actually - neither of us were really complaining at all, just thinking out loud. Not sure if I would have paid that money if I had known I would be in row 15! Point we are both making is that it would have been so much more preferable if we had known. In the end, happy that I was sort of half forced into taking these tickets and that I will be at what looks like almost certainly the opening show of the tour. And will sit with my friend from Utrecht who had tickets for the postponed LC Zagreb concert but could not make the rearranged date so that's another reason to be happy! And I have row 1 in Verona (with my son) and Row 4 for Lisbon (with my wife)!!! Paul

I received my tickets today. I'm very happy. I want to say thanks again to Jarkko and Maarten for the possibility of the presale via the forum.

We haven't received ours either but there is still plenty of time until the concerts will take place. I have found sherpa.be to be very reliable when I first got tickets through them for Leonard's concerts in Ghent in 2010.

I received 4 tickets last week by mail. But the ones that will be delivered by courier, I didn't receive yet (I ordered 4 pairs of 2 tickets and choosed (chose?) two different ways of delivering, by accident).

Received my tickets yesterday. Booked immediately when presale opened and got Parterre B, row 12 seats 18 and 19. I just hope the non-Cohenites will stay in their seats and not wander about getting food and drinks during the concert like they did in 2010 in Ghent...
