Wonder how this can happen? I got my ticket within one minute of 10am in the presale yesterday and only got row G. :?
Same here, block A5 row G.

I was just looking at those auctions on Ebay and all the tickets being re-sold (so far :roll: ) are in blocks A6 and A7 - so they're not the best seats.

I just feel sorry for all the fans who are waiting until Friday to buy tickets. Looking at other listings by these Ebay scalpers it's plain to see they earn a living sitting at their computers buying up tickets and then flogging them on for a profit. Ticketmaster gets a lot of flack for good reason, but Ebay does even more harm in my opinion.

Last year Tom Waits tickets had your name printed on them and you had to produce some form of ID at the door. That stopped the touts big time, and I don't remember any Waits tickets cropping up on Ebay.

Got an e-mail from Ticketmaster at 10am this morning linking to this pre-sale (with the same fans password in the link etc) so it looks like they've turned 'our' pre-sale into a general pre-sale now - I'm guessing they'll have e-mailed everyone who has previously bought a ticket to a UK Cohen gig.

Got my tickets at 10.01 yesterday anyway - A5 Row G, which seems to be the best available going by other comments on here. (I assume the first six rows are being held back for TM/SeeTickets to sell as expensive VIP packages as usual.) Many thanks Jarkko, AEG et al.

I'm hoping it rains heavily on the day to recreate some of the special atmosphere of that Sunday in Dublin!

Exactly why I'm travelling to Liverpool to see him even although I live within about 3 miles of MB World; I just didn't want to take the risk of it pouring with rain on the night.

Yes I noticed that, but still got some before 10am today - just in case! :) Are you going to this concert Jarkko?

That's why we're combining it with a summer hol in France - hopefully the rain will be a bit warmer in Nimes! But it would be good to be at Weybridge too - and to put a few faces to names, as lots of you seem to be sitting in the same block. It'll be a fantastic evening - shall be thinking of you on the 11th. But, hey ho, money's just a bit too tight at the moment to do both.

Not overly impressed with the lack of potential meet up points. If the weather is nice a picnic might be an idea. I quite fancy getting to see the inside of Concorde but not too desperate to see a load of old cars :lol: Can you do one without the other?

I am well pleased with my tickets I can't believe the good seats I have had seeing Leonard. Many many thanks to Leonard and Jarkko for actually giving a shit about us and trying to ensure that we get decent seats.

Lizzie I will be declaring myself bankrupt at the end of the year :lol: That is also why I think a picnic would be a good idea how much do egg and cress sandwiches cost to make!!

Matlock Bandstand never happened so 8 but Pete and I still live in hope!

Henning I have stumbled across you at a fair few (we still need to discuss the concept of a charity benevolent concert for bankrupt fans).

Are you going to this concert Jarkko?
***I'm afraid I won't... Eija and I are hesitating between Venice, Istanbul and Barcelona... (supposing that V. and I. will happen)... SO many great cities again in the itinerary, sigh, and resources to do only one or two...

My G~d, even Jarkko's going broke :shock: . Perhaps, he can emcee the bankruptcy meet-up.

No there's not a lot round about - you have to realise that MB World has been built within the old airfield cum aircraft manufacturing cum race track site. There's a business park to one side & a retail park on the other - not a lot else within a mile or so (except the main railway line which runs behind MB World).

Re Brooklands Museum -

http://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/index.php?/your-visit/

no, I think there's one fee for the whole site. I did read in the local rag today that the Concorde simulator has been rebuilt & installed at Brooklands, expected to be open to the public next month.

Cheers

I already posted about TM (pirates), and I agree, ebay is just as immoral. What to do about it???

I shall be meeting up with loads of you that I have met at previous Lenny gigs, which will be great - I'm A5 row N99, which was the first ticket I was offered yesterday morning.

I had never heard of this venue til the gig was announced, so am not much help re meeting up. But really hope someone will know the site - or an idea has just occurred to me if no-one on the forum knows the site:

How about if I phone the Merc-Benz number tomorrow and ask them for suggestions for a suitable meet up point? There are two cafes there, I do know that. Then I'll post a suggestion.

Hi and thanks so much for password. Got in with no trouble except that ticketmaster had my daughter's details which flummoxed me for a bit! However, got some B6 tickets which look fine. Was lucky enough to get right to the front to see Leonard at the Big Chill last summer and saw him at the NEC B'ham. So pleased he's touring again, thought he might have a rest this year! See you all in July!!
