Miss C
Stalls G is to the immediate left of the stage as you look at it. We've had seats in the block immediately opposite (Block O) for several shows and it's absolutely fine provided you don't mind a side view.

I was advised that the stalls were a better choice than the arena seats. I think i would be quite happy just to be there even with my eyes closed.
Well i'm glad you will experience whats to be a most magical night.

Wow! After rejecting a number of seats, I just got a front-row seat in Block O through the special facility viewtopic.php?f=29&t=12415&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a set up by Jarkko (many thanks). I just love the hint being visual: brilliant way to make sure the special tickets get out only to real fans.

And in the front row of Block O, I'm close enough to chuck Leonard a box of chocolates as well as the usual long stem rose! (Only joking: not my style.)

The cost? Getting up at 5.15am, because the facility went live at midnight New York time ... an odd time to choose for a London venue.

Yawn... Back to bed then, for the rest of my Saturday morning kip...

****it was because I was in Berlin, offline, and Dick posted the link on behalf of me :razz: / Jarkko****

Does anyone have any info re the start times of the RAH shows? The first e-mail from Seeticket had the Tuesday show starting earlier, at 19:30. The Seeticket site, accessed from Jarkko's link, had changed this and shows the Monday concert starting earlier. The RAH site says they both start at 8:00 ???

Sorry to post such a boring message but I cannot get the last train home if it starts at 8:00.

Cheers

Just booked two tickets in Block L using jarkko's link. Fantastic, I've seen him there twice before (1976 & 1993) but both times up in the gods so it will be great to in the stalls. Saw the O2 show in July which was excellent but the Albert Hall has so much more atmosphere. Many thanks to jarkko for arranging the special tickets.

Cheers

I suppose it is what it is. Personally, I am going to struggle to get there if it's a 7.30 start so I'm hoping for 8.00 pm .....

I'm back from Berlin. All of you certainly know by now that Ticketmaster and Seetickets finally opened both Royal Albert Hall shows (Nov 17 & 18) - even though still on Wednesday they emailed me that only the first is to be confirmed now. AEG Live kindly gave us 100 seats in the stalls to both shows, and you may buy those tickets through the link at viewtopic.php?f=29&t=12415

Dear friends, how good it is to see Leonard play at this magnificient venue!
I'll be there for the Nov 17 gig. Is there any major gathering planned on that day or the weekend after the O2 concerts?
Maybe Jarkko will propose something... All the best wishes,
Jordi
