Wendy -Thanks for the info. Jarkko has been notified...hopefully he can do something to stop this, and trace the sellers?

I think it was always likely the dates would come out one way or another. I mean let's be honest, touts are not stupid and maybe some of them have been signed up to this site for past pre-sales. It's easy for someone to sign in and check the presale section. Also, if they know people at the venues they may not have even found out through this forum at all. At the end of the day, nothing surprises me when it comes to touts getting tickets and information. For Kraftwerk in London there were a huge amount of tickets on sale through touting services when there were about me and 20 friends trying unsuccessfully to even get through to the phone line. I wouldn't be shocked in the slightest if some of the touts have ties to people at AEG etc...

Apparently, the secondary sites may be advertising even if they haven't got tickets yet. However, the main thing is not to mention the presale on Facebook or other Leonard sites.

I have always managed to miss pre sales in the past or end up with pretty average seats when I have got presale or public sale tickets so as I have got third and front row (both front centre blocks) seats for manchester and Leeds I am really chuffed.My wife made me swear to only get tickets for one show so I trashed the email confirmations but somehow she still found out. When I told her that the extra show in Leeds (as we live in Manchester) were front row and she should be able to pass Leonard some flowers (or whatever you women give to other men) then she was so happy I think I might have fun tonight.

I'd also like to thank Jarkko and everyone else for organising such a smooth pre-sale. I've managed to get 5th row A2 tickets for the O2, so I'm very happy indeed.

Thanks Jarkko and Marie - front row for Leeds - a remarkably painless journey through the online booking process - hopefully the Leeds seating plan doesn't change on the night :D

Many thanks to Jarkko & Co. who have indeed done a wonderful job. I knew it would be worth waiting rather than getting all "headless-chicken" when the earlier O2 concert went on sale!

Amazing pre-sales! Thrilled to get more great seats and what a stress-free experience! I'm usually tearing my hair out and shrieking at the computer (v attractive, v dignified), but this time all was calm. Too calm. In fact it seemed that everything had gone so swiftly and easily that I MUST have missed something/booked the wrong city/accidentally bought tickets for One Direction, but all seems okay so far...Block B Row A (Birmingham) seems pretty good?

Huge thanks Jarkko, Marie and anyone else involved.

Haha! I did find afterwards that I'd checked the box for UK standard mail delivery for my Birmingham tickets, which given that I live in Texas was definitely not the right thing to do. (I managed to get it right for the O2 tickets though!)

Well that went very well! My wife bought nice tickets for Manchester and London! This time the only thing I had to do was sit and smile! Thanks to all involved on this smooth pre sale!

I've just got home from work and put the O2 date on my calendar only to see that 14th September is Day of Atonement. I remember when we went to Verona last year that concert date had to be changed and it was suggested that it was due to Day of Atonement!!

PRESALE TO THE UK SHOWS

Well, I hope the team are pleased - they should be - with the outcome of this pre-sale, which seems to have gone very smoothly and put a lot of good tickets the way of a lot of good admirers of Mr C.

See you in Manchester, then! Despite the size of the venue, my gang thought it was second only to the Opera House in the same city in terms of sound and atmosphere last time. And a fiddle player too - now that's just the ticket!

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!

I look forward to meeting you there. Infact i'm going with a friend who lives near chester so perhaps we could travel together
