Hey ms blue, don't give up. The Guardian will presumably be selling the best part of 1900 tickets, so get the paper on April 4 and gave it a go. I'd be very surprised if the tix go on sale on that day. It is very likely to be one of those "collect 10 tokens over the next 2 weeks" sort of offers.

Good luck.
Thanks for that will
Will have to check if any local newsagents still deliver!!!!

John's right: The 'Manchester Guardian' is THE Guardian, as in the national broadsheet. It used to go by its full name, as it's based in Manchester.

As for advance copies: I work at the Beeb and we certainly get them, but anyone can. Papers are normally available at about 2am from whoever is open!
Hence the question was, is the old "Manchester" Guardian still printed up there? London printed papers don't reach here (Birmingham) until a few hours later. If someone in the city where it is printed could get an early one and post details here we could avoid hundreds of 4a.m. sorties!

The full page advertisement in The Guardian on Friday, 21st March 2008 stated that they have 1,600 tickets up for grabs for the LC concert on 19th June 2008.

That leaves circa 300 being set aside for various Guardian and Manchester Festival freeloaders!
