There doesn't seem to be a specific seating plan for the O2 concert when buying via Ticketmaster so this diagram might help:

cool! Thanks for finding that, Richard, I bought 'blind' and just hoped I got a reasonable one - BK B1 X11 doesn't look too bad to me...

Hmm. I've just rejected BK 102 E82, full price but in the first tier. I want to be on the floor...!

98 on-line simultaneously. Is this a record?

After thoughtcat's thoughtful inclusion of the o2 seating plan, here is one for Manchester :

Hi everyone and well done to all who got tickets for the 02: I was on the ticketmaster site from just before 09.00 but couldn't get any tickets at all. At 09.05 a message came up announcing additional tickets had just become available - all best seats at prices from £200 to £650. I wonder how they did that?? The only other tickets available at 09.07 were way up in the 4th tier. So anyway, good luck to everyone else. :cry:

The problem is that Ticketmaster is encouraging touts by running something called Ticket Exchange where tickets can be sold for more than their face value. That's outrageous. Twenty minutes after sales began, there were 46 pairs of tickets on offer, seats right up at the front (Block A2, row B) going for £595 each!

Time to switch to Manchester...

Bloody hell - what a trip.
I got 2 tickets for Manchester on the 18th - orchestra stalls row P. Hallelujah!
All the stalls were gone in 7 minutes.
And I guess that code thing during the first 2 minutes is something for regular buyers - read touts - who snap up the best seats. I had three laptops next to each other endlessly refreshing, so I couldn't have had a better stab at getting tickets, and row P was the very first thing I could get. Good luck everyone...
