hey there! wonderful news!

great things happen in this forum.

a question: do you know what are the chances that the second 02 will be sold out? I can't wait to see him it the Albert Hall (like I did in the 80's) but if that's not gonna happen, i'll be in Manchester. Won't miss him.

I know no one can tell for sure yet, but can anyone speculate? what are the odds?

what do you say Jarkko?

I guess the answers to my last 2 questions are 'yes' and 'here', maybe a better question is will this be all seated and in what layout.

The Mena website shows a large standing area before the stage in one of its layouts. We need to know the layout to decide whether standing or seated is better and where the seats offered are in relation to the stage set-up being used (there are several variants).

Good news though and I wonder if this is the new tour closer after the BIG question over Dublin.

Below is a link to the MEN Arena. Note the various seating layouts.

it would be really useful to know where the stage is going to be that night to judge which seats give a better view than others :?

I cannot seem to post it here but go to one of the concerts on the Arena site e.g. Stevie Wonder and when you are directed to the tickets (ticketmaster - seating plan) there is one option 'end stage, all seated' which I think most resembles how the indoor venues have been thus far

Here's hoping there are some good seats available in the public sale on Friday. It's my mother's funeral tomorrow morning so, for once, Leonard is the last thing on my mind at the moment.

We have changed the password because someone is selling the old password at eBay!!

The new password is the name of the person whose legs are white from the winter.

Me too! Block C Row J 7-8 ... a few times the site says there are no tickets available on the floor seats but keep perseveering.
Thanks Jarkko and all concerned .. at the 20 June concert someone shouted 'Come Back Soon' well, he will!
