Great - I was trying to get MJ tickets for a friend last week on there and the demand was so much I couldn't even get onto the bit where you select what kinda tickets you want. Was stuck on a processing screen for ages. Still, LC and U2 combined probably wouldnt have as many people trying to get on at once though, I hope!

Does anyone know if you get more input into your seat allocation if you book over the phone? A bit worried that they'd try and get rid of the not-so-good seats first, as ticketmaster often do. If you're on the phone can you ask for say..."seats nearest the front"? or will the person just give you the same seats that you would have been allocated if you booked over the net?

I think the phone call is automated so you just say what price bracket you want to pay and then you will get the best available seats at that moment.
One thing to remember is if there are 3 seats in the front row and you want 2 you won't get them as ticketmaster won't leave 1 seat on its own.
I think it is too short notice to be honest for the tickets to be announced tomorrow and the tickets on sale on friday, maybe next friday 27th

I'm not so much worrying about the purchase itself, it's more that I would need to know when and where the concerts will take place before the tickets are going on sale, so that I would know for which tickets I would have to go...
Since there will be just those 2 concerts in Germany and I was only able to get a good seat for one of them, I would like to make a weekend trip to wherever, which would include 2 concerts. The concerts wouldn't even have to be in one city, but the second city should at least be within reach...


Will anyone be following the tour in its entirety?

Yes but this was in reply to another member enquiring whether they should postpone an appointment on Friday? Just an educated guess maybe?

It wasn't an educated guess. I asked a straight question based upon the comments / hints that Jarkko has given us over the past couple of days! :lol: Nothing's cancelled yet anyway, mainly because I've just realised I am probably going to be on holiday in the crucial part of the summer .... :roll:

So we will know about all the dates before tickets are starting to go on sale, that's exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you very much, Jarkko!

Thank you Jarkko for the way you are handling this!

2 hours ago DHL delivered four tickets for the concert in Cologne on july the firtst. Visited the concerts in Amsterdam and Rotterdam last year, i didn't want to take any risk of Leonard not coming to the Netherlands this time. You can imagine how happy we all are. The ordering went very smooth. Ordered the tickets on the 17th at http://www.eventim.de and delivered on the 19th. And very good seats (row 10). I hope everybody who want to go to one of Leonards concerts will succeed in getting tickets.
