I believe the expression is "Currently Not on Sale".

2 Manchester tickets Wed 18th - NOW NOT AVAILABLE

Post by TonyJ » Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:01 am

These tickets are now no longer available. The Tuesday concert was exceptional!As per my post of 12 June (repeated, amended below) I'll be at the Manchester concert tonight and still have tickets for tomorrow (Wednesday 18th) (BTW The Ticketmaster site now appears to have no further tickets for sale or auction for Manchester).I have two adjacent tickets available for sale at cost or the UK Manchester Opera House concert on Wednesday 18th June - stalls row YY4 & YY5; face value each is £75 + £3.50 booking fee, + postage. My fiancee & I both managed to get tickets for the Tuesday & Wednesday nights respectively through the lottery that is Ticketmaster sales; I then rashly paid a fortune on ebay for a further pair of tickets for the Friday show . Just as Cohen's life was changed by first reading Lorca, mine was after hearing him sing on the Julie Felix show in 1967 when I was 14 years old - but I still think I might spoil this latest (last?) great experience of hearing him live by going to 3 shows in 1 week! And I'm also now well short of money ... If any fans are interested then I will sell at cost and can deliver personally in the Oxford or Manchester area. I can also be contacted about this on 07802 637153.

I have 3 tickets for Manchester 20th June and I can not go. Upsetting or what. I did see LC at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1979 when he went into a monologue about Phil Spector and the song Memories off the Death of album - which he described as an irrelevent ditty but predicted it was destined to have a life far longer than anyone could imagine; it was hugely funny. I really really wanted to see him again. Still my loss someone elses lucky day....these things happen or so I tell myself. FOR GENUINE FANS ONLY AT FACE VALUE OF £75 EACH. In view of time constraints I would send them recorded post for you - phone me 07525049553. The tickets are marked restricted view but i am told that this relates to a hand rail and in reality should not restrict anyones view of anything at all, but i thought I should mention it.

I am looking for 2 tix to the Monday, June 23rd Montreal show. Decided Tuesday and Wednesday just aren't enough! :) I also have 2 extra for Tuesday in Row T, as I had some friends who wanted to go, but now are not able. Let me know if you have extra for Monday or want to buy the Tuesday at face value, or trade. I don't care where the Monday seats are.
Thanks, Heather

I have two tickets - side by side in row S of the orchestra - that I'm trying to sell for Leonard Cohen's show in Montreal on Tuesday, June 24. (I live in New York City and can unfortunately no longer make the trip for the concert.) Of course, I'm selling the tickets for face value. Please respond to if you want them.

Additionally, because the concert is just a week away, I'll ship the tickets to you by any means you request. If possible, please also provide a telephone number so I can call you and thus hopefully speed up the process of getting the tickets to you.

Hi my mate from Birmingham is gutted he has pulled out of our trip to Manchester (I'm in London) as he can't get the shifts off the ward he works on.

So I have one spare ticket for Friday night in Manchester (which would happily come as part of a package as we were booked in a nearby hotel (£24.50 each twin beds!!!)). Although i guess i might have to sell without the attached bed...(!)
We're middle tier. (circle) Row J. I'm travelling up to arrive in Manchester Friday on the train @13.46.

Bizzare to see tickets had come back on sale...

Do PM me if you are interested

Thanks + Enjoy/glad you enjoyed!

Hi all,

I have been a fan of this forum for a while but have never mustered up the confidence to contribute. Now I can contribute two tickets for face value to any who desires them. The two tickets are in the gallery seats G16 and G17 and I can offer them personally to any buyer by hand as I will be at the Opera House that evening.

Thanks to the fiasco of ticket allocations, courtesy of See tickets, I have secured seats much closer to the front, but would hate these to go to waste. If you want them please message me:
