New Date - LONDON O2 - November 14th!

Postby yhtrownu » Thu Aug 07, 2008 1:53 pm

Ticketmaster are selling presale tickets to O2 customers, for the London O2 on November 14th, now!

If you'd like a ticket, you need to text COHEN to 2402, or get a friend to do so for you, using an O2 phone, to get a CODE to beat the ticket sales rush for the best tickets today (Thursday), before the tickets go on general sale tomorrow (Friday) morning.

Go here once you have a code: http://blueroom.o2.co.uk/the-o2/cohen-intro.jsp

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, I knew nothing about this pre-sale, despite being an O2 customer for more than 10 years and a Blue Room subscriber to boot. I get texts and e-mails from them for seemingly all the other pre-sales you can imagine (and a few you'd rather not) but not, it seems, for Leonard's shows. At c 2.00 pm I've just been allocated a couple of rubbish seats in the pre-sale so I've decided to take my chances with the rest of the public tomorrow.

So much for loyalty to O2. :roll:

This is really annoying. I would much rather go to a gig on a Friday, but having bought tickets for July and for the 13 November I can't afford more.

There will be no decent seats on Ticketmaster tomorrow either.

They had seats on their 'ticket exchange' even before the presale started. So rows A-J didnt even see the public light.

They are no better than touts.

Ticketmaster are auctioning some of the best tickets, including some in A2 Row B: http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/auction/1 ... 7DF5885/1/

This seems slightly less outrageous than the Ticketexchange method of touting the tickets. A forum member told me in July he succeeded to get a ticket this way, at or around face value.

At the moment, A2 Row W is still available to forum members via the special Ticket Section that Jarkko has kindly arranged. :)

Hello,

I've got an O2 question, but wasn't sure where to put it - What's the view like on the floor stalls? I understand that it's flat, not sloping. So, if you're smaller than the average, is there a problem with heads getting in the way?

I don't wanna end up too dismayed.

Hi shadowsonthewood,

There's always the risk of tall people at venues with flat floors , including O2. As I recall the stage is reasonably well-elevated there, so that should help to some degree. I hope you strike lucky...

All good things, John E

Hi John,

A reasonably well-elevated stage is good. Anyway, hopefully I'll be reasonably near it (I won't find out until ten days before the show - weird system by lastminute.com).

Cheers,

shadows

I'm in 102 row X, I was in 111 row U on July 17th - they are a good area from my experience at the Prince gigs last year. Sound ok, tiered so you can see the stage and the screens.

Anyone else in 102? When I went alone on July 17th I wasn't a forum member but would be great to meet some of you next time round

Hi, I was in block B3, the view was fine when all sitting down, at the end when everyone stood up we did have to shift our heads some what and stand on tiptoes but it was not too much of a problem, I'm 5ft 4. We may have been lucky not to have too many tall people in front of us tho.
