Many thanks to Jarkko and Marie, a much improved buying experience.

I am happy with Manchester seats in centre block B row E. These were the first on offer and I took them rather than lose them only to get inferior ones later!

Oh, I had to be away from the internet yesterday, and didn't notice that I was logged out when I came on this morning, but on a whim I've got a ticket for Birmingham. Block C Row C.

Thanks Jarkko and Marie. :lol:

Please come to Glasgow next time, Leonard: I might have someone to be at the concert with me for once!

Centre aisle is between A25 and A26 according to the plan I found so your seats are perfect!!

I don't think these are all from this forum's presale - At present you can still buy much better seats, than most of the ones listed on seatwave, in the forum presale.

Sadly also on Viagogo :cry: It really annoys me when this happens.

I didn't get any myself as I am happy with my June O2 ones (only 4 weeks to go :D) and unfortunately can't afford to go twice else would have chose Birmingham as that and the O2 are nearest to me.

Sounds like people got some very good seats.

Thanks very much Jarkko and Maria for the presales, much appreciated

These tickets on viagogo etc.. probably aren't even people who have tickets yet. Touts know where and when they will be able to get tickets and what tickets they can get. They have deals set up with crooked ticket agents at different companies as well as getting up early themselves to get some more. It's just the way of the world. Anyone who buys them there now is stupid anyway, if they were so bothered about making the show to pay those prices, surely they should know already about this?

yeah, but most of the buyers don't realize that those are NOT the best seats available because that's the best they can get/see. this is the perfect chance for selling cheap tickets for high prices.

I went on this morning (a bit after the start of the presale) just for a look - not really intending to purchase.
What can I say - when I saw Saturday gigs in Manchester and London, I could not resist.
I still got Block C row 3 for Manchester and centre block row N for London. I was very pleased.

I am also pleased for the folks who got front row etc, I have had my share of those over time.

I could have purchased a great ticket for Leeds (a city that I have frequently visited to see the
once mighty Leeds United) but could not due to work.
As it is with work, the 2 Dublin shows and the second London show, I will probably not get any sleep
for about three days ...

Big thanks to Jarkko and all who made this possible ....

The point is not whether they have tickets, but that the dates are out at all.

Exactly da2008. Glad someone else got the point.

The dates are supposed to be "secret" until the UK tour is officially announced next week. Only registered forum members had access to the information and we were all specifically asked NOT to post the information elsewhere.

Vicomte - I managed to get a front row central seat for Brighton, so see you (and Lizzie M) there! Another kind friend also bought me a fifth row seat for O2, for help I have given her previously.
