Hi Dharma,

I was online with both the Olympia and gdf sites - the Olympia has a chart to preview where the seats you are going to buy will be - for example, Row 18 seats 06 & 08 are shown to be Center Orchestra close to center . . . the gdf site does not show you the relative position of your seats . . . . however it does not make sense to me. The seating chart does look like 36 across, how are they numbering the seats? . . . I bought tickets from gdf, row 13, seats 15 & 17 thinking they would be in the center based on knowing they were about 36 across, but going off the Olympia site indicators, now it looks like they are in the Orchestra center, yet to the far right and perhaps i got an aisle seat (do you know what the name for that is in French?) Maybe the preview chart is not all that accurate?

Do you know where a seating chart can be found that indicates the actual seat numbers as well as the Row #?

thank you for your help

hi ....

seats 01 and 02 of each row are the middle.

from 01 it goes to one side to 03, 05, 07 and so on, and from 02 it goes to the other side of the row - 04,06,08 and so on.
so your seats (15 & 17) are on one side ( i dont remember if it is the right or left on, but it is 7-8 seats from the middle)

The seat that is on aisle is the 19, so you are just one seat away from it

A very good evening, everyone.

Thank you Abulafia for the links to Paris.
I booked tickets for wednesday, 26 november, through olympiahall.com on 9/7, got confirmation within minutes, and got them delivered by registered mail on 11/7, in a little folder showing a view of the place ; balcony seats 1224 & 1226, that is on the right hand side, looking towards the stage : pair numbers are on the right side of the middle.

(folding seats are "strapontins" in French)

thank you for all your help - the confirmation of ticket for Row 13, seat 17 has the word stapontin next to it, so that is the aisle then. Well, I am still happy to have tickets, although they are not what i thought i was buying. hopefully this is helpful to others . . .

Hi Leax
Tickets which arrived today are postmarked 09 July. Credit card has now been debited. Check your credit card account. If it has been debited then they're probably in the post. Don't worry, it'll be fine.

Guys and girls,

I need your help!!
I booked two tickets for the show on the 24th directly at the Olympia hall.

While booking internet explorer crashed but everything seemed to be completed. Now that I received the tickets it appears that they are not seated togeter :(

There's quite a difference of a number of rows. I already called Olympia but they say they can't do anything because the concert is sold out.. :(

As much as I love the songs of Cohen it would be nice to be seated together.

Anyone has any ideas or tips?

Any help is appreciated!

Regards from Holland! Semmy
