Unfortunately, I still can't get two together... and have to give up now, because i'm out of time at work.

Good luck, all.

It's definitely not too difficult.
I expected something less famous. :razz:

But to be honest, I think such a simple question was very good to separate the boys from the men (or was that some kind of perfume? :D )

Never mind, there are plenty of tickets available on eBay already!

This time last year I wouldn't have hesitated to pay $850 for a VIP ticket in row B but I'm skint now. Hey ho.

Actually, many of us figured it out right away and used it with skepticism, no good seats available. We naturally figured that it couldn't be the "new" password that was "brand new" at 2:00 so we dismissed it from being a possible answer to the trivia question and have continued to seek out a "newer" password that wasn't already being used earlier today by hordes of ticket scalpers.

Basically, we didn't think that a password that was leaked almost two hours ago and was widely used already would be the "new" password. Guess we underestimated some sad facts even though the trivia question was obvious.

Wow. They are sold out. No surprise, I suppose, when the password was leaked. Stupidly, I was trying everything but manhattan because I thought we were getting a different one. Urgh.

Looks like that the fan allocation is sold out now. There will be about 1000 tickets available in the general sale on Friday at 9 am EST
