Bought 2 tickets half an hour after pre-sales opened, for Golden Circle on Sunday 12th August.
I now have the chance to go to Paris in September, so if anyone wants these 2 tickets at face value, please pm me.
Gilly.
(this must be the earliest re-sale of tickets!)
OH DEAR! What was I thinking of???? I guess I've been panicking since Monday and had so little time to myself to go online and look at options/dates/possible arrangements etc.
So, final decision - I will be going to Guent.

Victoria, I think this presale here has only some rows available in the golden circle (and other sections), because tomorrow there is another Belgian site "Greenhouse Talent" that will have a one day presale, only for people who ordered their Cohen tickets there two years ago. I presume they will have some rows in the golden circle too...And the real sale , open for everybody, is only Friday 30 March..So I believe that anyone who has bought Golden Circle tickets here on the forum has really good seats in the front rows... :D
Well, that's what I THINK, not sure of course..

Hoping you are right . A good indication of this is how quickly golden circle tickets sold out for our pre-sale for the Sunday - certainly suggesting there was only a limited number. Let's hope they were at or near the front!

Hi,
Don't worry, the presale tickets were all VERY good tickets, I'm sure nobody will be disappointed!
GreenHouse Talent is the Belgian concert promotor for the Leonard Cohen concerts, aswell as the Webb Sisters gigs. They were very helpful to get the presales done and I'll make sure to thank them for their efforts!

See you all in Ghent!

I was so happy already to get two tickets at all, but now Maarten says the 'Golden' seats bought this morning are probably in the front I count my blessings again and again... :D
So thanks again and I hope everyone feels happy and content.
My friend Hilde Casteleijn and I hope to meet some of you in Gent on the fourteenth for a wonderful evening.

I am having a VERY hard time. I had to pay through the bank transfer option because Sherpa wouldn't accept either of my U.S. credit cards; I went to my bank with the info Sherpa provided, & the bank wouldn't do the transfer because they need the NAME of a bank to send it to, & Sherpa did not provide the name of any bank (they only provided bank acct. #'s, etc., but no name). So I sent an email to Sherpa, asking for this info, & am very anxiously awaiting a reply. Anyone know anything about this??

The thing is, the furthest away we could be is 30 rows from the stage - which sounds unlikely, especially if we booked not far after 9am, mine was half an hour after. This is pretty amazing for me, someone who has only seen him once in London and was so far away from the stage I had to squint my eyes to even see the stage! :D

Now, what will the weather be like in Ghent in mid August??

I was there twice in 2010 at Leonard's concerts, it was one week later in August then, and the first day it was a perfect summernight , nice temperature, no one needing any coat or jumper till midnight. Two days later it was nice too, but cloudy , rain was expected but it started raining only SLIGHTLY around midnight. Umbrella's will be forbidden, at least , that was the case then .

When I see the Swift code of the bank, it must be" ING". That's the name of the bank. Maybe you have to add "Belgium" to it or "Brussels", because it also exists in the Netherlands. Hope you'll succeed! Good luck!
