Bought tickets to the Copenhagen show :D Very happy, but due to the fact the danish ticketmaster site didn't accept international Amex cards I lost out on seated tickets and had to opt for standing ones.

It'll be a great experience nonetheless :D

Jarkko, here http://www.pastemagazine.com/action/art ... n_15_years
are more dates than on files. Is it credible? Prague would be a great option for East Europeans like me...

August
3 - Ledbury, England @ Big Chill Festival
5-6 - Istanbul, Turkey @ Arena
10 - Prague, Czech Republic @ Castle
12 - Budapest, Hungary @ Sziget Festival
14-15 - Girona, Spain @ Cap Roig
28-29 - Vienna, Austria @ Opera House

***the August schedule is still under construction and the concerts are not confirmed. There are rumors indeed in the media, but as long as they are not announced officially by the tour management I will not add them to the list! / Jarkko ***

Keen - as far as I know, the Copenhagen show is all standing, in two sections: Golden Circle in front of the stage + the rest. If anyone knows any different, please could they let me know?

Oh, yeah you're right. Mistook the Golden Circle for seats.
Those golden circle tickets sold out quick.

Hi All, Just been reading about lots more fans who haven't managed to get tickets. Is it possible that through the forum, maybe under another heading, there could be a place for tickets that for some reason cannot be used, to be offered to others for cost price!! I for one would welcome a ticket for any of the Manchester shows, just a thought anyway!!!

Hi everybody,

with my Copenhagen ticket in hands (or rather in the post, hopefully...) I'd like to know if anybody knows how many "golden circle" tickets were sold and what the capacity of the Rosenborg Castle Eksercerplads is?? Just curious...

If anyone hears about a confirmation of the Vienna opera house show (I called and they said it wasn't on) or the gig in Athens on July 29th, can they let us all know? I missed out on all tickets I tried for.

Dear Jarkko, sorry to bother you with this, but I would like to ask if there's anything we can know about August dates&venues beyond the rumors. I mean, is there some target date for the confirmation -- like the first half was confirmed and announced by March 11? Appreciating any response.

***The tour management is fine-tuning the August dates, and I will post it without delay as soon as they give me green light. In principle I'd say that many who are worrying here can relax and just wait patiently 8) / Jarkko***

Prague should be 100%, at least according to this: http://www.1015.cz/index.php?l=cz&page= ... 008&id=284
it's official web of 10:15, CZ promotion agency.
it should take place at Prague Castle, open air, garden space
tickets go on sale 10.4.
at http://www.ticketpro.cz
or
http://www.ticketportal.cz/
i have no idea about how big it is (well it can certainly take in a couple of thousands ppl) or if its standing only or seated.

Kokesh: Thanks a lot for info about the Prague concert!

I hope I will get at least one ticket... And that the concert will be seated, of course :)
