Same.

I still can't find a seating plan. Anyone know if BK 106 row K are decent tickets? (bought them either way)

I also think it will be the same set up as Neil Diamond -
i just got Level 1, floor seating, section BK A1, row A, seats 13-14

I am not sure whether section BK A1 is the A1 section - what does BK stand for?

if they are A1, that means first row, so chuffed!!!

I got on line at 09.00 am, got allocated 2 tix block A1 row 9, and as a Ticketmaster account holder it should have gone straight through, only turned out my credit card was out of date. (It expired last month) so as prompted I updated it. Ticketmaster told me it could not contact Barclays to verify it at that time and I should try again. When I managed to reconnect 5 minutes later, all the best tickets were gone. I feel like crying.

Glad to hear some good people got Block A tickets.
Hate the TicketTout scum who already are charging astronomic prices.

BTW there are still good Block B1 tickets available on ticketline.co.uk

What I find unbelievable is that Ticketmaster officially allows touts to operate on their website. The fact that touts are paying an additional fee to Ticketmaster suddenly makes it OK to resell tickets for profit!

... what happened this morning??? I was ready well before 9 am. No phonelines available - no queues either - then the message cut me off. ... so on to ticketmaster online... No floor seats available - only through their offer of £750+ !!! "How can this possibly be?"

I got a ticket - BK 102 (I think). I have no idea where it is. At least I didn't pay £750 ...

I wonder if it is worth trying, once the rush abates, to change seats if better offers become available?

Or maybe I'll stick with what I have, and pray for the Royal Albert Hall in winter to promote the new album ...

Good luck to everyone else ...

thanks paula - with my luck, i thought BK would mean "back" or something like this, so this definitely means I got front row tickets. I can't believe this, so very happy!

Cbellio I am glad someone from the forum got front row seats. You can take loads of pictures for the forum pages.

Here is the standard seating plan for the O2 Arena:

This is really incredible, Floor tickets were not available at 9:05...
(And even if I wanted to buy a ticket at TicketExchange, they only offer 2 or 4 tickets, but I only need one :( )

Good luck to everyone else!
I'll try for Loerrach then :) .

i was only going to accept tickets in blocks A1, A2, A3 in the 02, i had decided while lying awake most of the night and none came up - best one was 101 and i figured the place is just too enormous for me - and then i waited anxiously for the manchester ticket sales to start

they still had good tickets (i would say in the opera house - that stalls and circle - are all fine seats, in this approx 2000 seater venue

Paula, i am going up to Manchester from London, maybe that is on option for you too ? :?:

you can call them also on 0844 847 2277

all the best to everyone :D

After my disappointment over London (got on line and got tickets allocated near front, then found credit card on my Ticketmaster account expired last month and I could not confirm my allocation; by the time I had updated it, tickets had gone) I have got tickets in rear stalls for Manchester Opera House on Tuesday 17th June. Probably prefer a more intimate venue anyway. Better acoutistics too. We will be going up from London. Maybe others travelling from London for the Manchester dates can contact each other via this site?
