Hi Anthony,

Go to board index / old ideas world tour. the very first item should be presale link and passwords thread (above the announcements),

The link should take you straight to ticket master where the tickets for 14th are available.

Good luck!

Was on ticketmaster at bang on 9am and already logged into my own ticketmaster account (so I do not have to enter any personal or credit card details) and was offered row M (that is row 13) in Block A4 but of course the site crashed and by the time I was logged back in I was offered row J in block A3. To be honest I am reasonably happy and would normally accept the seats I got as being very good seats but I wonder who has got the first 13 rows in block A4 and why I was then shunted over to block A3. I would place a bet that tomorrow morning I can get better seats or that someone will get better seats than me later today.

I'm much happier with my ticket for this concert, BLK A3, row f, seat 66. I've 3 tickets for row dd in block a on the tuesday night. For this concert i thought ditch the rest of the family and go with one ticket and it's given me better results.Hope everyone got what they were hoping for and i never thought this would happen again so i'm over the moon. Thank you to everyone and i hope frayed nerves recover for all of you

I got block A3 too row G, i think its good I was on at 9am would have loved A4 but not to be. I have block A4 row Q (17th row) for sale for the Wed night if your interested or anyone else. When we went to Lisadell we had what i could only call nose bleed seats and it was still amazing, except for the few who were only there for the drink and messing...

Diana

To say I'm shocked by your outburst is putting it mildly, but I am not surprised. You are only saying out loud what I feel a certain number of forum members feel, viz ...that unless you have 4, or indeed in some cases, 5 figure post totals on this forum, you are not a true fan. This could not be further from the truth. Perhaps the real fans spend more time listening to Leonard's music than posting here. ? I have been a fan for the last 45 years, and only joined the forum in 2008. The reason.? I did not have internet access at home until then. There are many other reasons why people are only joining now. To make judgements about their motives for joining sits oddly with your " love's the only engine of survival" signature. I know plenty of fans who are not members, but no less the fan for that.

Like Marie, I was a lone fan for many years but I am delighted that at last Leonard has achieved the success and recognition he deserves. And long may it last.

To anyone described as "scum", please accept that not all forum members feel like this. I hope you will continue to make your views known and contribute to the forum.

And one final comment, if you're looking for capitalists, I suggest you could start with AEG, Sony and local promoters.

Tony.

just want to say thanks a million jarkko, marie and everyone else who runs this site. i just got my tickets for the dublin friday concert moments ago and i'm really delighted. i know the two people i'm going to surprise with the tickets will also be over the moon. i didn't care where the seats were, just to get a ticket at all. i saw him in 2008 in kilmainham and it was one of the best concerts i have ever seen in my life, without exaggeration. he played for over 3 hours and the atmosphere and his own feelings which came across so clearly on stage were just so powerful and moving. we sat in the light rain not even feeling it, absolutely transfixed.

i am one of the 'new fans' in that i only managed to work out two days ago what the fanclub presale meant and how to participate in it and so i joined this forum. i am not a big internet user so it wasn't something i would have done before, but i am a fan. i have his albums, and book of longing as well as 'dance me to the end of love' with the matisse paintings. and i truly love his music. for years and years, i never thought i would get to see him sing.

i can understand people's frustrations when touts or ordinary people come and join the forum and then sell the tickets for a lot more on ebay or elsewhere. i hope people here will resist the temptation to do that. it's really a shame that leonard has chosen to (or had to) go through ticketmaster who have a poor online system that often doesn't work, charge extremely high booking fees, and have a near-monopoly on ticket sales in ireland. i am from dublin and ticketmaster are a frequent source of pain to musiclovers in ireland. maybe we can encourage leonard to go with tickets.ie or some other smaller suppliers next time, though usually such things are hard to change. there are other things he could be encouraged to do to get rid of touts, like requiring names or id on all tickets. let's hope things will improve.

i wanted to say that last time having been unable to get a ticket as they sold out so fast in 2008, a week or two before the concert i went to toutless.com which as its name suggests is not for touts. there you can buy tickets from other fans at face value only - you cannot pay or offer tickets for more than face value including booking fee - it is legal and is a way for fans with an extra ticket or who can't go for whatever reason to get those tickets to other fans. we met a lovely guy who couldn't go to the concert himself, paid him face value, and got to go to one of the best concerts ever, that people in dublin still talk about 4 years later. it is possible to do things fairly. this post is very long, but thanks again for all your help and efforts running this forum. i wish everyone an incredible time at the concert, and love to all his fans.

I feel your frustration. Its hard to think/believe that there could be several hundred folk,
simultaneously trying to get the best seats. And I suppose some, naturally, will be reserved
for Leonard & The Bands' guests & families, AEG & POD management companies.

You have to hand it, though, to Jarkko, his family & fellow Mods, week in, week out,
month in & out, etc etc, to continuouly attempt to satisfy people.
That saying springs to mind:
“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time,
but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”

Tomorrow when seats go on general sale,
there will be folk out there, who'll bite your hand off for those seats, imho.
