Bob,
I started from the official website of the Zenith in Lille and they have links to several official sellers like Fnac, Carrefour Spectacles, ...
I'm pretty sure these prices are indeed official prices!

Go to http://www.zenithdelille.com/index.php and click on 'Billeteries" on top (which means "Tickets"). You will find a list of official sellers.

Maarten,

I fear that you are right but know you will understand if I hope very much that you are wrong, as I really love my cats!!


Alhough it's partly no doubt due to the decline of the US$, in US$ terms the lowest prices you list are two or even three times as high as the lowest prices for U.S. shows, even in theaters half or even 1/3rd as large. This is staggering!

Bob,
I'm already used to paying $250 US for LC tickets in the States (New York, Las Vegas, San José,...), but last year when LC came to Belgium, I believe tickets were around 90 EUR (135 USD) for the most expensive category... I didn't go to Paris then, because I remember tickets being 146 EUR (215 USD) which was a bit over the top. Funny, because I'm paying tons more to get over to LV and SJ right now, but these concerts are more special (I keep telling myself -and my wife- this...).

I have mobilized 13 people to join me in Lille and told them I would buy tickets... My VISA has a limit of 1900 EUR, so that will be ok. Except I also promised my parents to buy a few tickets for Strasbourg for them... Mmmm... Will have to check if that's possible...

Got to go to bed now and set the alarm for 9am (even if it's holidays right now) to check latest reports and get set for the 10AM stress...

Bye,
Maarten
(signing of at 3AM, so 6 hrs of sleep should be enough)

Maarten,

By the time you have read this, I hope you have gotten a good night's sleep. It's 9:30 p.m. here in the eastern part of the U.S., and I have to get up at 4 a.m. for the sale!! Maybe there will be a special 30% discount for people who engage in this insanity!
I am hoping/planning to go to Lille, Caen and Strasbourg (bye house & cats!!!), so hopefully we'll have a chance to meet. I'll be the bearded American wearing a barrel instead of clothing.

Thank you so much Maarten for your digging! I'll definitely be in Lille too, back from down under in Feb.
Have to wait until 8pm here in Sydney ;-)
Have a good night!

Just to put Bob's mind at rest, Carrefour will be an official selling agent, as will be FNAC and Ticketnet.fr Both FNAC and Carrefour are major outlets in France.

Hi Wendy,

I'd say despite kind intentions this info has disturbed rather than rested my mind! Not to mention what it's about to do to my life savings. Could I get anyone to offer $500 apiece for a couple of very pretty and nice, but slightly used cats?

Tickets for Caen, Marseille, Grenoble and Tours are already on sale at the GDP web site but NOT for Lille and Strasbourg ! Does this mean there isn't a Pre-sale for Lille and Strasbourg ?

I made a test, too. The seller has some kind of bug on their website. Let's hope they will have it working soon.

CHUBI: use the link I provided, it shows the seat selection etc. for every concert but the "Continue" button produces an error, for the time being
