I'm pretty convinced that the German concerts and those three in Paris are to be confirmed in
the final list. I booked tickets to Berlin, too!
Jarkko - thank you for giving us as much information as you are able. We do appreciate your difficulty - I do anyway - damned if you do, damned if you don't so to speak.

I have booked tickets for two of the Paris shows but I hardly dare get excited about them unless and until they are confirmed on the final final list for the Fall Tour. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get such great seats at an iconic venue and I will have to try and be philosophical if the shows don't happen. It's only money after all (gulp ....)

Hi,
I am flying to Berlin on 4 October for the LC concert and would like to know where the stadium is so that I can start looking for accommodation. Would anyone be so kind as to provide us travellers with some info?
Vielen Dank

The o2 world Berlin ist near the "Ostbahnhof" (train station Berlin East), that is in the part of the city called "Friedrichshain", where now a lot of students live. So it's pretty central and can easily be reached by the public transport (S-Bahn, Bus) or via regional trains.

Berlin ticket for 4th Oct arrived in post today in UK. Ticketmaster de. only charged me 6 euro for postage and it took 3 days. Excellent service ! As i said in previous post the price of diesal fuel makes it cheaper for me to fly to Germany than it cost to drive to Manchester ! :D

I am flying to Berlin on 4 October for the LC concert
As we have discussed here, the shows are not yet officially confirmed. It is safe to buy the tickets from sellers like ticketmaster and eventim; the price is refunded if the concert for some reason would not be confirmed [I have no reason to believe that it wouldn't, I am just cautious]. But it is different with flights - if one buys a cheap flight, the price is not refundable. Therefore I advice everybody to wait with the flight bookings until we have the confirmed list. That's why I have no flights to Berlin although have got tickets. Unfortunately this may mean that the flights will be more expensive when booked at a later stage...

Tinderella, you were asking about accommodation. The East Side Hotel is quite near. 83Euro incl. taxes
Might see you there

To all of you, interested in concerts in Hamburg or Berlin:

I don´t know yet, wether there will be concerts in Scandinavia on the Fall Tour and where - but IF there is a concert in Århus, Denmark, it is quiete easy to get good tickets, and it is easy and cheap to get there (Ryan Air from 10 - 50 € /ticket flies directly to Århus). I also can help you to find accomodation.
I booked a ticket to Hamburg though, but should we be so lucky, that there is a concert in Århus (or elsewhere in Denmark), I will not hesitate to buy one more...
