I fecked up. 

Nothing on Ticketmaster or live nation.  Checked Amazon last and they had standing, but all gone by the time I requested.  Noticed some lower level tickets so put them in and thought I'll see where they are.  I didn't seem to get any final 'are you sure you want these' screens and ended up buying them.  They're fecking Amazon lounge tickets and cost £166.80.  fecks sake.  In block 111, no idea where.  I get a food and drinks voucher, though.  Probably Pork Scratchings.  fecks sake.

Got through quickly to AXS, having joined the queue at 10.30, only to be told 'your internet is down' - not wasn't.  Frustrating.

Not a sniff of anything decent either, not interested in upper tier. The main reason I hate big gigs.

Sorry mate - had to chuckle at your Pork Scratchings comment though  ;D  - on the brightside block 111 is quite decent. And you get waiter service to your seat!!

Frustrating thing, is I just KNOW, better seats will come up in the run up to the gig.  Never mind, its done now.  They're on the list of must see bands/artists for next year (along with about 100 other bands/artists)....

Just got the last 2 tickets in block 110 on Stargreen, near the back corner but at least it's  downstairs.

Managed to get 3 seats in Block 409, Row C for myself Bez and a mate for the 2nd gig on Tues.19th - as Bez said, better than not being there. It broke my rule of 'never going back to the 400 blocks seats' following the last PJ gig there in 2009...  ;D ::)

Out of interest, I checked Stargreen after getting the above, for some reason they were only selling for the Monday gig, so had a look.... bagged a single seat in Block 110. Think it was the last one, as their 110 allocation became unavailable when I looked again, then shortly afterwards the other two areas they were selling (Block 405, and Block 114 behind the stage) went offsale.

Just checked again, Stargreen have Tues. on sale, only Block 114 and 405 though (110 sold out).

I literally just looked, and saw the 110 "offsale" notification when I refreshed! Well done mate, is that the Tuesday I take it?

I phoned up Stargreen whilst hovering over the "Pay" button, to check where in the block their seats are. They don't know! So, we know we're in Block 110, but they don't get told seat numbers until the tickets are released to them by the promoter - an anti-touting scheme he said.

Just having a read of this thread and thinking what a fecking nightmare it is trying to get tickets for events these days. Wouldn't it be better if we could just go back to the days before the internet when you phoned the venue to order your tickets...

I was thinking exactly the same Rob and it's the reason that I go to so few gigs these days. There are only a very small handful of bands that would get me into an enormodome or stadium at near on £100 a ticket and that aint going to happen unless they reform or come out of retirement.
