We are 7 and 9.

What's with the odd seat numbers? Is there no even numbers or are the seats not together?

i'm 15 (seat, not age).
i think one side of the row is odd numbers and one side is even numbers. that's the way it was in madrid anyway.

I always get annoyed at these booking systems - worse than a lottery. I bet if you go back in later you'll get better seats offered. Did this to me earlier as well.

Also that particular Franch booking site does not allow you to choose various different ones and then delete the ones you don't want, you always have to click 'empty cart' - real pain.

Agreed, most annoying.

The system that places like the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Centre etc use where you are given a seating map and click on the specific seats you want is much better.

That's how they all should be, so you can choose and see for yourself what's still there. but don't think they'll change it just because we're unhappy. maybe part of the plan to get your customers annoyed as much as possible so they'd just buy any old tickets.

Lille: I have P3, Rang I, place 004 and 006....
At first I've thought the first row, but I think it's the ninth letter of the alphabet (i), which means row 9, not so bad anyway BUT - where are the first eight rows - just disappeared?!?
good luck, see you there!

I just managed to get a premium ticket for Lille.
The first few attempts I got the message that there were none left but on the fourth attempt:
P3 - Rang I - Place 001
Which I think (hope) is the front row.
I was only buying one ticket which may have made it easier.
I recommend that you keep trying even if the first few attempts fail.
Good luck.

Ah, in my excitement I didn't think of that. Oh well, 9th row still isn't bad.

Row I should be by default the 9th row.

I cant find a seating map to verify that though...

I see people talking of p3, rang m and n in other fora (not concerning leonard cohen), so I is a letter and not 1...
