Nice one :) i"m sure we'll have a great view, and if not it'll still be a great time :D

PS - what's an Infant of Prague and what does it do?
http://www.pragjesu.info/en/ This is the ~Infant of Prague, it's a wax statue of Jesus. The tradition here is that if you want fine weather for anything like for example a wedding that you put a statue of the Infant of Prague outside the house for the night and it is meant to guarantee good weather :D I'm sure it has other blessings as well but I'm not sure what:-)

looking forward to travelling with you again Nifty!!
Thank you (I'm such a heathen :lol: ) surround your house with them!

Am in Row B of A3 for the first Dublin concert, hope they're central enough, got them pretty quickly after 9am

Bad form to not have a seating chart, especially with the amount of money involved.

Looking forward to the gig, don't think anything will top last time I saw Lenny! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn1RT25c ... ature=plcp

edit: and thanks to Jarkko as always!

I am very pleased to have tickets for Kilmainham, thanks to the link here. I wasn't sure how good they were, Block A5 Row J. I agree there should have been a seating chart, when you are paying over €100 for a tickets you should be able to see what you're getting. It seems from recent posts, my seats are fine....I am really looking forward to seeing Leonard again... :D

Thanks Jarkko for the links to the Dublin shows.

Got A4 for one night and A6 for the other.

Bad form POD for the lack of seating chart and bad form ticketmaster for the multiple crashes. Me nerves are shredded.

Stressful morning, couldn't log out of my partners account on ticketmaster to get into my own and his credit card had expired so needed updating. I lost A4 bb seats but eventually got Wed 12th, blk A, DD,106-108. i abandoned so many tickets and almost was recognising the catch it codes. Oh Well, happy days and I hope you're all content.
Thank you to all who made this possible

Didn't hear it myself unfortunately, but on Twitter they're saying the below about a competition they just had on the John Murray radio show here in Ireland:

Unintentionally hilarious Leonard Cohen competition on #JohnMurray there! Wetting myself! No-one had a clue of the answers!
Brian Hugh Flanagan ‏ @BHDFlanagan

That leonard cohen quiz on the john murray radio show is vintage stuff.
30m Martin Fitzgerald Martin Fitzgerald ‏ @MartinFitz

Excellent, john Murray show run a Leonard Cohen competition and the two finalists hardly know who he is.
30m Philip O'Connor Philip O'Connor ‏ @philipoconnor

This is comically bad on @johnmurrayshow. It might be a while before we hear the Leonard Cohen quiz again...
30m Bernie Quinn Bernie Quinn ‏ @berniequinn

Nice to know it was real Leonard Cohen fans that rang into the John Murray show #nullpoint
31m Random Irish News Random Irish News ‏ @randomirishnews

Extraordinary Leonard Cohen quiz contestants on today's John Murray Show. Just, extraordinary.
33m Philip O'Connor Philip O'Connor ‏ @philipoconnor

Might have been an idea to get some Leonard Cohen fans for that Leonard Cohen quiz on @johnmurrayshow

No - had no message like that using Chrome. But NatWest blocked my credit card after I bought a ticket for the 29th so I had to yell for my husband's card to buy one for the 30th. Fortunately I managed to get the same seat re-allocated. I also had a fraud warning e-mail from Amex resulting from my Ticketmaster purchases for Dublin. They just don't understand!

WoW... same message I got using someone else's card and I didn't want to risk it! Fraud warning could result in their freezing your card, too.
that's why I don't have a debit card right now... happened last week; fraud warning, someone charging for the Anchorage Inn :shock: [Alaska??]
Now, I'm waiting the 7-10 BUSINESS days for the new one to come in the mail!
And even though I put money in PayPal today, it won't 'actually' be there for 5 days!

Hey Everyone,
I wanted to surprise my wife with tickets for the 11th Sept, so I got some tickets but when I phoned her up she had the same idea. I know have a spare pair of tickets which anyone can have for face value.

The tickets cose 189.20inc p&p for BLKA ROW S Seat 20-21, I can forward on the email confirmation as proof I have them and will send on the ticket FOC when they arrive.

Cant wait to see him again in Dublin, if only the wife had bought tickets for the 12th instead of the 11th that would of been brilliant.

Gosh, that took me over a stressful hour, but I at last have a ticket for Paris on the Saturday night. :D
Firefox wouldn't allow me to pay at all (untrusted site message, which it wouldn't let me over-ride), so I had to go through the whole rigmarole again on IE, and lost the seat I had on FF.
I wish the site had let you see which seats were available and let you choose your own seat. It was a bit of a pain having to type in price categories for each night to see which would be best. But it is what it is.
Looking forward immensely to the concert, as I'm a relatively recent fan and have only been to one concert before.
Now to look for flights and accommodation.
Thanks to Jarkko and Good Luck everyone.
