Well done Wendy . I think LC said in one of his interviews something like LUCK is an important component of both success and failure .
Thanks to Jarkko for the presale but my luck hasn't been so good so far

at 9am A2 didn't even show up - every so often it comes up but then when i put in the number of seats i want (3) it says 'not enough seats available' which i don't believe for a minute. Also the sections keep fluctuating....hate being at the mercy of some daft computer system.

Will need to keep trying.

I kept on refreshing (maybe 30 times or so?) and suddenly 2 A2 row L tickets came up. I lost them after faffing around getting my card details, but after another 10 minutes of refreshing, they popped up again. Maybe worth keep trying? Good luck.

Why the panic? Tickets come and tickets go. Be patient. Keep trying. Good things come to those who blah ...

I tried about a dozen times and, in the end, "settled" for Row G in block A3. Not central, but a lot nearer the front than the back.

I'm just happy to back in the game, Going Home, as it were.

Thanks to everyone for allowing us to be so lucky that not getting uber-privileged tickets for a gig is all we have to moan about.

Perspective, people....?

It is indeed. We bought single tickets to improve our chances / options. We will still be going to the concert together, just sitting in different places. We're not going to talk to each other during the show so we have absolutely no need to sit side by side.

Now of course this always depends on the artist and arena. I too wouldn't want to sit on the upper floors for a Leonard Cohen show, whereas for other big artists, such as Springsteen I wouldn't mind.

However, I can't understand why some of you say that tickets on the side blocks are "rubbish"? In my opinion, these seats are better, than sitting way back in the blocks on the floor.

The nearest seats I ever got were in Gent in the golden circle. After 5 songs I left to sit at the very back, because two stupid women didn't stop talking. Still enjoyed the show... ;-)

Utterly upset about AEG's prehistoric website - I got the same two seats in block A2 twice and both times got timed out (less than two minutes) before I got to buy them.

How bizarre, when we go to any gig, we travel together and we stand, or sit together, it's part of the experience. For LC we like to enjoy that experience together, you obviously don't mind but we do. It is not that important to us to see LC at the O2, it would have been nice to come back to the UK and see family & friends at the same time, so we shall just have to be patient for other venues. I have to say though, in our experience,this is the first time that tickets have gone so blindingly quick and we have been unable to get good seats together when we have used the pre-sale.

Good luck to those that did manage to buy good seats, I hope you enjoy the gig, together, or apart........

Sorry, I thought that it was LC who we were talking about. I see your point about other artists and people talking around you might make you want to move. ;-)

Really ? Less than 2 minutes to put in all those details ( and deal with those extra credit card security measures)
Needs improving - most sites give you at least 5 minutes!

I don't actually think the presale offers you better tix - the last time i got better ones about 3 weeks after the sale has started. I think they just get released at different times..all a bit random and hugely annoying. Also the site keeps timing out after about 20 secs
