I got two at £60 in BK 106 earlier today - via Ticketmaster. There were quite a few available. They're better for me than the ones I bought on Fridayin BK 402 (I thought the warning about fear of heights, etc. were just a myth; I hadn't realised that the warning was in fact on the official O2 site and therefore must be real, otherwise why would they put off some people from booking those seats. I suffer quite badly from fear of heights. I think it's safer on Level 1. :-)

What it shows is that the advice to keep on looking on Ticketmaster was wise. Seats in BK 106 were not available on Friday at the time I tried to buy tickets, but they were today. What else is going to go on sale in the future?

Nearer the concert date, Ticketmaster/Seetickets et al will miraculously "release" floor seats they haven't been able to shift through tours. Harvey Goldsmith - the biggest hypocrite in music promotion - is notorious for identical tactics.

I'm absolutely certain of it.

I go to the theatre a lot and they've started doing the same thing on Press Nights: for nigh on 35 years I was able to go to Press Nights with no problem whatsoever (I'm talking about the subsidised theatres, not the West End), but a few years ago it became impossible to get good seats for those performances - whole blocks of seats are now being reserved, and released nearer the dates. I pay a premium to be on priority mailing lists and I can't book for the performances of my choice! Scandalous!

roscoe -
when should one hunt the Ticketmaster site in the hope of a better ticket? (A month before? A week before? etc). ... I guess it is hard to be definite, so - hey, ho - back to the old routine of checking the little screen many times per day ...
