Just to let you know that the Advance Ticket option for the Manchester and Glasgow shows has now closed, as our allocation of tickets has sold out.
As soon as the link went live, we quickly received 1,000+ applications. Remember that we had 250 pairs of tickets for each Manchester and Glasgow. The first 250 people to express their interest in purchasing a pair of tickets to their chosen show will have now had a chance to obtain priority tickets on a first come, first served basis.
We have e-mailed those lucky ones and are pleased to see that you have eagerly snapped up your tickets in record time. But we must stress that, just because you received an e-mail with a web link and a code/draw number, this does not guarantee you the chance to get your hands on any tickets. As we operate on a first come, first served basis, the first 500 to take up the offer of tickets have taken the alloted tickets… and they were quick to do so, too.
Indeed, it will be the first time that David has played in Manchester and Glasgow since 1988 and 1971 respectively.
Anyway, if you haven’t been lucky this time, the remaining tickets go on sale this Friday. Good luck.
It has also been brought to our attention that some fans who purchased tickets for the Milan shows from outside Italy have not yet received their tickets. Don’t worry about this yet. Although we are not responsible for the distribution of tickets, and therefore cannot be completely sure of individual promoter’s policies, we know that often in these cases promoters send out tickets closer to the time of the concert. If you still have any concerns, then you need to contact the promoter. If we have anymore news on this story, we will let you know.
Thanks to Bran for bringing the matter up.
If you purchased tickets for the Milan shows from outside Italy, then do let us know if you’ve received your tickets.
To everyone who has written regarding the sale of tickets on eBay, then all we can do is reiterate that we do not approve of this unfair form of profiteering and strongly suggest that you ignore these unscrupulous sales. Many listings have been removed by eBay because fans have reported (to eBay, not us) sellers who purport to have tickets for sale before it is even physically possible to have the tickets in the first place. We believe that fans have even sabotaged auctions by placing extremely high bids so that the sale is declared null and void.
Again, we stress that we cannot encourage or promote anything that would damage eBay’s trading. If you feel strongly about the issue, then you can contact the sellers directly and question them on their reasons for selling tickets that they have only just purchased.
Our thanks to Piers for informing us of one recent situation in Spain.
If you’ve got tickets to see David in Manchester or Glasgow, then feel free to use this blog to squeal and shout your delight. We’d love to hear from you.
