Here's a plan for Marseilles... possibly my preferred place. Only one day to make up my mind!

Great news indeed, thanks for the info Maarten. The seating plan for Lille appears to indicate that the first section (marked P) is standing room only. Do you know whether this is for Leonard's concert too or will there be other (seating) arrangements then? I would love to have a good view of the stage, but am not up to standing for four hours straight.
Anyhow, I hope to see you there!

It sounds bizarre but I saw there were already tickets on sale on www.worldticketshop.com (prices 219 € and 199 €). They started selling at 8 pm today. How can this be ?
Anyway, I' ll wait until 10 am tomorrow. I hope to have a ticket for Lille or Strasbourg (or both, if I'm lucky ...).

Judging from the prices quoted, I can only presume that this is not an 'official' site but one that charges high prices for getting those 'elusive and exclusive' tickets! At 199 euros, I certainly hope so! Very much doubt they have real tickets for sale.

Am waiting for the 10am sale tomorrow as well.

they're scalpers;they don't have any tickets yet but are hoping to scarf them up and them resell them to desperate folks at a killing. i haven't been able to find any pricing info but judging from past concerts the tickets should start at about 30 euros and them to up to around 180 at the top

Ticket prices for French concerts

Post by Maarten » Wed Nov 04, 2009 4:07 am

Hi,
About ticket prices for the concerts in France.
It took me a while to find anything, but it seems prices are:

Lille: 73 EUR - 128 EUR
http://www.spectacles.carrefour.fr/bill ... -ZECOH.htm

Marseille: 73 EUR - 128 EUR
http://www.spectacles.carrefour.fr/bill ... N-MALC.htm

Grenoble: 51 EUR - 117 EUR
http://www.spectacles.carrefour.fr/bill ... -GRCOH.htm

Tours: 73 EUR - 128 EUR
http://www.spectacles.carrefour.fr/bill ... -TLEON.htm

I haven't done any more research, but I guess the other venues will have similar prices.

Maarten, many thanks for your digging!! I did check the Lille listing you have and that's certainly what it says. But, given that these are not the official sites of either the arenas or the selling agency (as listed by Jarkko), let's hope this is a scalper site of some sort, as, with the ticket fees this would mean that prices would start, in US$, at about $120. Apparently the Lille arena seats 7,000 and that would just be an unbelievable price! I guess we'll find out in 8 hours!!

Thanks again.
