My tickets arrived in today's post!

The tickets and the enclosed leaflet state Gates 4pm Show starts 5.45pm. I had previously been told Leonard would be on stage at 7.30 so presumably Suzanne will play for an hour or so.

For those who have received their tickets in the post, may I ask, did they come in the regular post, or did you have to sign for them from the postman (such that they would have not been left had you been out) or by courier?

Thanks

My tickets arrived in the post today in the regular way, no signing involved.

Does anyone know, as Suzanne Vega is doing support, will Leonard being doing a shorter set?

Mine have just arrived too. They were delivered by Royal Mail 1st Class Post, as I had requested.

Not long now, getting excited!

Foxwood I wish I had had the sense to phone and get the tickets sent with the parking permit they did charge me £1.75 postage on the parking.

Linmag no meeting has yet been organised we need to get our thinking caps on. Does anyone actually live near the area that can suggest something vaguely within walking distance otherwise we will just have to meet at the site somewhere.

I hope my tickets are there when I get home.

Talking of tickets - Michael Jackson - refund of £85 or a "collectable ticket".

Weybridge tickets arrived today, and they look great with a colour pic of Leoanrd in his blue suit and hat. They also come with a sheet giving times (as listed above) and other details of the event.

All good things, John E

Just got my tickets - a day later than everyone else it seems! Much relieved they came by post after all. Very fancy, much nicer than the bog-standard Ticketmaster fare, they'll make a nice souvenir of the night :D

I'm getting nervous. Postie has just delivered the usual junk mail for me to throw out, but STILL no sign of my tickets!
Is anybody else in the same boat? :cry:
