Hi

i've not posted before so hello.

Just regarding ticketmaster - who are the bane of my life - have done this before regarding issuing a price range and no indication of why, where and how many prices there are. For Bob Dylan in Kilkenny there was 5 different prices :shock: I couldnt believe it and nothing to say where each were for. This was a little puzzling for a gig on a football pitch with one stand. Anyway i've emailed them to ask for a seating plan before Friday (dunno if ill get it though). For the aforementioned gig I got a refund when I booked tickets for the wrong area on account of this so I hope they dont make the same mistake again. grrr. Sometimes the most expensive ticket is not necessarily the best.

anyway I hope we all get tickets regardless. I'd love to go with my old friend who I used to live with and listen to leonard the most I ever have! Time for the gals to get together again for what will be an amazing night i'm sure. pity it couldn't be indoors though :?

this does tend to be the case sometimes with ticketmaster ireland from past experience, especially with a venue thats never really been used for a seated gig before, will be interesting to see the seating arrangements

however on a brighter note a lot of people will be put off the 115 euro price tag and opt for the cheaper seats too.. hopefully leaving the "best available" seats for us!!

2 nights, according to the times(?) this venue will hold 12000 seated - not too sure of capacity but everyone that wants a ticket and is up and sitting at a PC at 9am shouldn't have a bother getting one

And its lenny, so every ticket will be a good ticket (Yes I'm quite the optimist!), just to be there will be such a great experience.

What a year for gigs in Dublin!!!!!!!

Thanks Jimmy that is sweet.... but what do i do give them all my credit card details and we all try at the same time? I am being positive. I am happy in a way that the tickets are a bit pricey, so maybe that may put some people off.

Yeah! If you trust them enough give your details!! Its worth the risk ;-)

If they're close by you can let them secure the tickets and then put your own info in manually.. I've a few people beside me with computers so the first one that gets in I'll run over to take over!!!

Then I'll buy them breakfast :D

Best of luck tinderella53, you seem mighty deserving of a ticket :D I really hope your posting smiles here on friday :D

If all else fails get a lend of a wheelchair and buy a wheelchair ticket. Thats horrible. I can't believe I just wrote that.

My thoughts exactly...

although as someone else said, the ticket prices will probably keep the fairweather fans away!

Don't know what the panic is. I just bought 6 tickets for the IMMA gig on Ticketmaster in the last three minutes. No hassle, no rush, and near the front of the seated main area.
Se y'all there :razz:

You're on a wind up RP.

I'll have to wait for the Sunday tickets, anyhow.
