Looks like there will be at least one more UK date in addition to Liverpool and Belfast (Mercedes-Benz World...unconfirmed), with more European dates to be announced for August and September.

Really could do with a London date, surely there will be? Royal Albert Hall would be perfect!

I see he's got from the 10th to the 15th (excluding 14th which is Liverpool) of July with no concerts booked so far. So let's hope he's spending a few of those nights in Blighty. And that he does Chelsea Hotel this time.

I made the mistake of having a look at eBay to see what tickets had found their way there. Surprise surprise - lots of seats in Block A row D and Block 15 row A for sale at extortionate prices.

Personally, I do think the pre-sale limit of 6 tickets per person was unduly generous. People will buy 6, use 4 for their family & friends then sell the other 2 somewhere for twice the face value.

Oh, and the pre-sale password is also for sale on eBay. Hey ho.

Yes, I saw all that too. But today there was a sale of tickets for Dylan at The Roundhouse. I think they did all they could to limit scalpers - password, only two tickets per application, have to pick up on the day of the concert by both ticket holders, photo & address ID etc - result was that web site crashed, couldn't get through by phone but tickets are already on Ebay - one £50 ticket already has a bid of £256. Other tickets on Buy It Now for about £300 each. Very annoying.

Does anyone know if Ticketmaster is more likely to give out decent tickets initially, because it is a fan presale, or will they hold the good ones back to release whenever they feel like it/sell on ticketexchange?
If you check on liverpool echo arena ticket site they have gold seat tickets for £75, just checked now and they still have availability in block A on the floor!!!
Web address is marketing@accliverpool.com promotion code is PRLC09 Good Luck!!! :D :D

I have just been on the Ticketmaster site and there are no tickets on sale yet for Mr. Cohen's concert at the Liverpool arena. :cry: Do you know if he is likely to play Cardiff again? If so I will wait ........

glasgowgirl - tickets for Liverpool are on pre-sale at the moment. There are £65 tickets available in the fan pre sale (follow Jarkko's link from the top of page 1 of this thread) or you could try vetra7's suggestion and go to the Liverpool Echo Arena's website where there are still £75 Golden Circle tickets available. Click on any show to get to the ticketing website, then select tickets on the top right hand side menu and search for Leonard Cohen. It will ask you to put the pre-sale code in (see vetra7's messages) and hey presto - you can go ahead and select your seats.

Personally I would not hold out much hope of another Cardiff show but then, what do I know?

Good luck!

Well done Paula! And you can probably make a killing on eBay with your MJ tickets!

Megan is still going to see MJ but she is gonna take a mate.

It is ironic really Megan moved to Liverpool so she will be coming down to London as I will be going to Liverpool. She sent me the link from ACC Liverpool with the precode.

I would have been miserable at the MJ concert. :lol:
