Maarten, I was supposed to be sitting right next to you on the Tuesday. My health is not great, unfortunately, so my godmother will be attending instead with her boyfriend. She is really cool. You will like her!
I was going to take a friend, and my tickets were second row in G, seats 7-8.

Seats 80 and 81, to be exact... so that means there's a single mystery person between myself and Barry. I hope it's Alan Rickman, so I can surreptitiously put my hand on his leg. :razz:

Gina
Gina,

My wife reckons that the mystery occupier of the seat between us will be none other than that self-professed admirer of Mister Cohen's works, Prince Charles.
His mother will have treated him to a ticket for his 60th birthday.....

I'm happy just to be there amongst the forum members, thanks to Jarkko
and Marie.
BUT
Why a £13.70 "premium" on the ticket price? I could bring a few ham sandwiches for that!

Anyway, only about 73 hours to go... if you all feel the way I do I think Leonard (and his excellent band) will remember
Monday night "Always", just as we will.

See you there :D :D :D

The £13.70 is to prevent Leonard from having to sing "The Butcher".

Monday - Arena B, Row 13, Seats 11 and 12
I'm not far from Tinderella53 but the rest of you have opted for the luxury of the stalls vs the mosh pit - it has to be the mosh pit for me

I am curious which night at the RAH people think will be better - I will start a separate thread on the subject
