Birmingham NEC start time.

Post by RobertP » Sun Nov 09, 2008 4:16 pm

Hi,

I bought tickets some time ago for the NEC (or whatever it is called now) and only recently noted that the start--time is listed as 6.30pm. This is somewhat problematic as I do not finish work until 5.30 :roll:

So, is 6.30 the time that LC comes onstage? I see no mention of any support. If not then any idea at what time he normally comes onstage? I don't really want to be driving up the M6 at breakneck speed if I don't have to...

Many thanks.

It's been 730/8pm for most of the gigs, I think...

Hello Robert,

My tickets, obtained directly from the NEC Box Office, state 8:00 pm kick off.
6:30 is the probably the time the doors open.

Cheers,

J

Hi Robert,

My ticket, purchased from the Arena's own ticketing agent Ticketfactory - states doors open at 6.30pm and show starts at 8pm. There is no mention of a support act.

Is there anyone interested in meeting up before or after the show?

Smiles. P

Excellent, thanks for that. I thought 6.30 was a bit early to start!

Many thanks, I'll now be able to eat at home rather than eat venue "food" ;-)

I don't know about a meet-up, but I'm shocked (if unsurprised) that the latest I can get back back to Staffordshire with the aid of public transport is 22:30! Unbelievable! Christ knows what I'm gonna do.
