With the recent stories of multiple screens, pre-regs and so on around Taylor Swift what’s the most you’ve put yourself out for tickets. Last Friday I had to reschedule an optician check-up as it clashed with the onsale for Sasha (legendary dj) at the Hare and Hounds. I was right, hitting refresh and so on on strong wifi was vital. Sold out in about 20 seconds flat. Going back 40 years I can remember several trips to the Ardwick Apollo to queue up for tickets in the early eighties, when I possibly should have been at sixth form.
This is a (very) long shot, but due to our putative lift being stricken by Covid, we won’t be able to attend tomorrow’s concert by the YWIWH at Leeds Arena. We only arranged the lift because our original travelling plans were stymied by the rail strike. It’s too late to put them for resale on Ticketbastard, so…we are where we are.
This might appeal to the West Yorkshire massive in particular, due to the aforementioned strike, weather etc. At present I’d just rather they be used, although any voluntary gratuity would of course be gratefully received.
The old roué is of course way past his peak but still a reliably enjoyable night out.
I have two tickets for Nick Cave & Warren Ellis at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday the 6th of October. Does anyone either want to swap for tickets on Thursday the 7th, or buy then off me?
Hope this doesn’t contravene site rules, but for reasons too boring to go into, I have 2 tickets for Scritti Politti in Leeds (Green’s college town, of course) that I’m unable to use next month, and hoped someone here might want to buy them from me. Green and his band will be playing Cupid & Psyche ’85 in its entirety for its (sort of) 35th anniversary, and it’s a sold out show, so should be good (I’ll be gutted to miss it, to be honest.)
Venue: Leeds City Varieties Music Hall Date: Tuesday 28 September 2021 Location: Upper section, row A
I paid £80.88 and will accept that or nearest offer, and in case of a rush, I’ll say “first come, first served…” In the interests of full disclosure, I don’t have the actual tickets in my hands as I write, they’re due nearer the date, but I won’t need payment until I’m ready to post them. Hope that’s of interest to someone here, cheers!
PS Was anyone else here at the Word In Your Ear show at the Lexington in 2012?
Hey folks, I was due to fly to London this Friday and see Elvis Costello and the Imposters at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith. Obviously the other stuff happening is keeping me grounded in Dublin. The tickets are Circle Standing so they’re relatively cheap, £100 the pair. Anyone more local interested? Elvis is always great to see live. Ta!
I’ve got 2 tickets going spare for Rhiannon Giddens at Bristol Colston Hall on Sat November 18th. They’re in Row U seats 13 & 14. Absolutely gutted I can’t go so they may be wet with tears when they arrive if there are any takers. They cost me £45 for the pair and I’ll pay for recorded delivery. Sob sob sob.
You know the feeling – taken for a ride by some God-awful large corporate company…
I’ll start – 18 months ago I left a job. My former colleagues were kind enough to do a collection, and knowing I like to attend gigs they bought me a Ticketmaster gift card. Very nice of them too. They must have been feeling flush, as I had the tidy sum of £280 on the card. Today I attempted to use the card to book some Strictly Come Dancing tickets as a Xmas present, only to find the gift card had expired. On closer inspection, in tiny words, it says that you have to use the card within a year. Yes, I feel ripped off and I didn’t even pay for the damn thing!!
Any other examples?
