Re: Lille, who is going??

Hi zodkavombie (good name!),

I'm going over to Lille on my own so a meet-up would be very welcome.
I've never been there before so I can't help with a location, hopefully there's a forum member out there who can point us in the right direction.

You may be nicely surprised.....
If they're going all the way to Hong Kong maybe they could stop off in Bangkok and do a show.

Re: on the side at Lille

Thanks for pointing this out goldstei. I've wanted to visit Bruges since seeing the film 'In Bruges' with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson (a rather low brow reason to want to visit a city I know, but there you go). Looking on the Eurostar website there's a train form Lille to Brussells that takes ...

Re: Pre-sale to France on Wednesday 4th

I have P3, Rang I, place 004 and 006.... At first I've thought the first row, but I think it's the ninth letter of the alphabet (i), which means row 9, not so bad anyway BUT - where are the first eight rows - just dissapeared?!? good luck, see you there! Ah, in my excitement I didn't think of that....

Re: Pre-sale to France on Wednesday 4th

I just managed to get a premium ticket for Lille. The first few attempts I got the message that there were none left but on the fourth attempt: P3 - Rang I - Place 001 Which I think (hope) is the front row. I was only buying one ticket which may have made it easier. I recommend that you keep trying ...

Re: Pre-sale to France on Wednesday 4th

Still no joy with Lille tickets. I'm going to have to get to work & carry on from there (if I don't crash my scooter on the way).
Good luck everyone.

Re: Leonard Cohen concerts in France 2010

Lille is only 1 hour 20 mins (and £55) from London on the Eurostar. That's quicker than getting to Liverpool (In fact it's probably less time than it took to get to Weybridge from central London) - I can live with that.

I've just had an email from Amazon UK saying that "Isle Of Wight" has been dispatched.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, Israel, Ramat Gan Stadium 9/24/09

Does anyone know if the final seat count for the Stadium is 47,000 or 48,000? And a question for the experts (Maarten? Marie?) has the tour seen a crowd this size before? I don't know how many seats there are exactly at the Stadium, but it is by far the biggest crowd, I'm pretty sure! Maarten The c...

Hi Maarten,

I've left it too late for the Lunch but will be at the Sunday night event and drinks on Monday afternoon.

Re: Armelle Brusq Spring '96 documentary on DVD!

I ordered the DVD from Amazon France 5 days ago and it was waiting for me today when i got back from work. At £16.85 including postage it wasn't cheap but like Wendy my sense of proportion where LC is concerned has pretty much gone out the window over the past year or so. The film is in English with...
