London 2016

As you may have heard David reveal on BBC Radio 6 Music earlier this morning, following what was said on BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright in the Afternoon show yesterday (both of these shows can be replayed online with the BBC iPlayer, if you missed them, of course), David will be performing again at London’s Royal Albert Hall next year, for four nights in September. Yippee!

The dates are Sunday 25th, Wednesday 28th, Thursday 29th and Friday 30th September 2016.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am (UK), but, as was the case for Radio City Music Hall yesterday and because we’re so darn nice, we had a Bloggers Presale Password, so look forward to seeing how accurately you can demonstrate your excited squeals of delight and whoops of joy using only a keyboard.

If you didn’t receive this e-mail, that’s because you haven’t been involved in this part of David’s site, so please don’t ask for the password; it was for those who have been involved. The idea was to give the faithful a gentle push to the front of the queue to thank them for their loyalty and support. That’s perfectly reasonable. Everybody’s free to contribute if they want to. You’ve had ten years to join in, where have you been all this time?

If you did receive it, all I ask once again is that you keep the password to yourselves. Please be fair. Please do not share it with anyone. Doing so will only reduce the number of tickets available for everybody else, and if all parties involved in making these tickets available can go to the trouble of trying to secure a relatively small group of people an advantage, the least you can do is not jeopardise that by forwarding the password to others. Thank you for understanding.

Tickets for all four concerts will be available from Friday from the Royal Albert Hall Box Office, as well as seetickets.com, ticketmaster.co.uk and stargreen.com.

Please note: There is a strict limit of four tickets per person and this does not mean four tickets per person per show. It means four tickets in all, thank you very much, and that’s your lot. As per the usual Royal Albert Hall rules, the name of whoever buys the tickets will be printed on each ticket and must attend the concert with photographic ID. These measures, as you know, are in place to stop the ticket touts.

What a Christmas present, eh? Unlike the chaos of Black Friday, you don’t even have to push anyone over and trample all over them to get it before they do. How nice.

Good luck, everyone, and let us know how it goes for you.

    You lucky guys who are going to London in 2016 to see David Gilmour.

    Hope there will be some concerts in Scandinavia ore Europe!

  2. Tom B - Dublin

    I believe the allocation of codes is a fair one and kudos must go to everyone involved with this blog and David along with his management.

    I first discovered this blog around 10 years ago when I heard rumours that David was recording a new solo album. Since then I have had many hours of joy and laughs at the comments posted here and enjoy contributing the odd line or two, even winning a prize way back when. I think the real fans knew where to go, it seems there is a lot of interest of late now that the word is on the street (or social media if you like) that pre-sale codes are available here. While there may be true fans among all the ‘Johnny come latelys’ the system is fair and only right that the long time contributors of this community should be rewarded. There is no obligation on the artist or his management or agents to provide early access to tickets but I believe this shows a decree of appreciation for the fans.

    Thanks FEd, enjoy the shows guys.

  3. Carl

    I am saddened if not a little angry that someone has the gall to complain that they never got a code and says that it’s unfair. I signed up to the mailing list in 2006 after his web site sort of split from the Floyd one. I have said earlier that I was sanguine about not receiving the pre pre sale code but as I have purchased via his web site and signed up to mailing list then I was emailed the code yesterday in time to order a ticket for Friday gig.

    Thanks Fed for all your efforts.

    To those naysayers or to quote PG from BINYC off TLLDOB, “progressive hypocrites”, go elsewhere and get a life or join a blog and keep this blog for fans of any description.

    If anyone lives in Nottingham wants a lift to the Friday gig, I will be travelling down to gig and back in day, leaving very early to get a parking place in Stanmore and spending day in London records shops. Contact me via this blog if FEd lets you.

    Regards
    Carl

    • FEd

      That’s very kind of you, Carl. I’m happy to help make arrangements if anyone wishes to take you up on your offer.

      (Just leave a comment here, I won’t publish any personal details and will pass them on for you.)

  4. Kris

    The complaints are just from people who didn’t sign up or contribute and as a result missed out. They’re beyond pathetic, I can accept it’s not a perfect system but it’s really just a lot of bitterness. The implication from some seems to be that they don’t have ‘all day to spend on the blog’ because the poor souls have jobs and busy lives. Even though they some of these very people spend more time on Floyd forums posting than any of us do on here. Hilarious.

    By the way there’s already several complaints about tickets being resold on various websites, I checked stubhub and sure enough loads of them up for sale, cheapest is about ยฃ600.

    Apparently the simpletons who completely disagree with presales would rather see the touts do this with the best seats too, and it’s in the interest of ‘fairness’ right? Haha, get a grip.

  5. Ciaran McQuillan

    Happy to say I have managed to get a ticket for next year at the RAH. My wife spent most of the morning trying (at work!) to get tickets and was thankfully rewarded for her perseverance! Amazing!

  6. Tom

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned. The Foo Fighters sold a lot of their tickets through the “Beat the Bots” campaign. In an effort to beat the bots/scalpers/brokers,etc., they offered the first shot at the best tickets to their “True” fans, by selling them as a first come, first serve at the actual venue. Just like the olden days, if you wanted a good seat, you camped out for it.

    As far as pre-sale codes go, I do not believe it does anything to keep brokering thieves at bay.

    • Tom

      Actually, in my opinion, there are no “true” fans (well there may be but try to define that…). There are people who want to go, people who don’t and those buying tickets to sell them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ How someone buying tickets can be identified to belong to either group is quite hard I guess. Also of those who at first wanted to go and bought tickets, some may get sick or whatever and just are not able to – usually these kind of circumstances occur short before the event.

      The idea that the Foo Fighters implemented seems logical, but also professionals trying to sell tickets may have the dedication to camp out and buy tickets at the venue (but I am certain it might be rather inconvenient for them since a lot of that “business” is done online). Also how would someone buy tickets for a venue in a foreign country – take an expensive trip? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Let’s emulate the “camping out” online! One has to be on a website, with a waiting number and constantly has to try to solve puzzles or similar (to prove they are not sleeping or taking a shower ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). May be it would also be fair to make a rule: If you buy any tickets, all names of the attending persons must be written on the tickets and at most one is allowed to change. Try selling that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    F’Ed.

    After all of the tension, excitement and drama (as Tommy Vance used to say…) of this week, I forgot to ask your view on the Liverpool-Southampton result…

    • FEd

      Wasn’t it great? A 6-1 romp! So nice to have Daniel Sturridge back, for Jordon Ibe to get more game time (and a goal), and I was really happy for Divock Origi to finally find the back of the net at long last. But then the Newcastle result yesterday. Oh dear. That’s Liverpool for you.

  8. Brian (Brian_Kildare)

    Hey FEd, thanks a million for that passcode the other day. For last September’s gig my wife and I managed to get 2 middle front row tickets thanks to the presale passcode, thanks again for this. That show was probably the most memorable night of our lives, apart from our wedding and the birth of our 2 children… of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So when I heard rumours of 2016 RAH shows I had everything crossed that there would be a presale passcode and to my delight there was!! I managed to secure 2 middle second row seats this time. So needless to say we are over the moon!! Plenty of time to line up baby sitters for the trip from Kildare to London!!

    I’ve had so many happy experiences as a result of this blog. I was one of the lucky ones who got to ask David a recorded question at the Leicester Square premiere of Remember that Night, from the blog competition. I was also in attendance and got to see Rick make his last public performance, that really was a night to remember.

    So all I wish to say is a big thank you for the generosity and for showing this level of appreciation for contributors and fans.

  9. George Maciver

    Hmmm, I wonder if some of these comments are from pissed off touts? That would be cool, hey?

  10. Olivier

    I got tickets to Verona and RAH this year thanks to the blog with the pre-sale code. Thank you FEd for these, I had a great time! And I was also lucky enough to get great tickets for the RAH next year this morning without a code. Without the Blog I would have had no idea about these shows, so thanks again FEd, even without a code you were a great help!

  11. mooncusser2k

    If I’m honest the choice of words and tone in a couple of comments above is a bit disappointing.
    The matter of getting tickets is bound to stir up strong emotions, but there’s no need for name-calling or disparaging. That’s not the tone I recall since discovering this blog 9+ years ago. Better to disagree and remain civil than to become disagreeable.

    • Jill

      I agree. I think the consistently positive tone is what makes this site so special, and keeps drawing me back to it. That said, it is getting a bit tedious to read all the complaints about the presale. Like they say, ‘no good deed shall go unpunished’.

      You’re a saint Fed.

  12. kkdowning

    FEd, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to buy presale tickets. I missed out on the RAH shows this past year and felt really bad about it. But it makes my recent story that much better. I have been working at a remote jobsite in Canada for several weeks. Due to the stress of my job, I woke up at 2:30 am two nights ago. As luck would have it, this was the same day that presale tickets went on sale for RAH 2016. So I was able to log on and got super lucky with 2nd row tickets. Wowzer. So happy. Thanks again!

    FYI, 2:30 am in Western Canada is 9:30 am in the UK. Tix went on sale at noon (5 am my time).

  13. Marcus

    Yeeees..got a pair of tickets..back to London:

    2006 Hamburg, Amsterdam, Munich
    2015 Oberhausen, London 2x
    2016 London!!

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful concerts. ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Helge

    Hello from Germany. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a 55 year old big fan from Germany -this is my first post!

    I got tickets for me for this year’s September shows in Oberhausen and two London shows with a presale link and even more better tickets from the Royal Albert Hall later on during the year. Even on the concert days I saw people buying them on the box office at the RAH. For the opening In London next year I got a ticket yesterday from the RAH online. So please don’t desperate without tixs yet, there may be a chance to get even a good one coming back to the RAH box office from time to time – good luck!

    NB: last year I flew 2 times in one week from Germany to London to see David 2x and a few days later with my daughter to see One Direction 2x (they were good as well ๐Ÿ™‚ – I’m sure I was the only man in the world with this combination ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

    Happy Xmas to everyone – see you next year.

  15. KubaWinter

    I was able to grab to fantastic tickets for the first night, but most importantly, this time I’ll be able to take there my father – life-long Pink Floyd fan, who never saw PF or Gilmour! I cannot decide what I like more about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Justin Grisman

    Unfortunately I was at work when the email came through so by the time I got home it was too late. Very frustrating to see tickets on Viagogo for ยฃ500+ just for standing in the gallery. I was lucky enough to see Mr G at RAH in September and have seen him 4 times previously (twice with Pink Floyd), so I suppose I’m being greedy wanting to see him again.

    I think that RAH should limit sales to 2 x person, that way it would make it uncomfortable for the person selling on for 10 x the price to sit next to the purchaser.

    Keep up the good work FEd.

    • FEd

      Hard luck, Justin. I’m sorry to hear the password reached you too late to be of any benefit. The e-mails went out as late as possible to limit the likelihood of the password being shared.

      I agree with you, by the way. Four tickets is still too many.

      • Michรจle

        I personally think that four tickets is better than two, for example for families with teens, especially if they’re coming from abroad. We saw David in 2006 with our (two) children and they enjoyed the concert. This wouldn’t have been possible with a limit of two tickets.

        Well, we have to help youth to listen to good music, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • lorraine

      In all honesty I think anyone who pays a tout ยฃ500+ (or anything over face value, come to to that) for a ticket is as much a part of the problem as the touts are.

      Agree with you on the 2 ticket limit, I’d actually go further and make that for no more than one show too. If you want to take your chances in the general sale after that then go for it.

      • Taki

        I’d agree with you Lorraine but there are some parents among us, who’d like more than 2 tickets. There’s surely a solution for that but I think that people will try to take advance of Mr Gilmour’s and FEd’s generosity. I for myself bought only 2 tickets and in the 4th row although I could have bought 4 in the first. I was in the 1st row in Oberhausen and thought that another visitor should have that treat, too.

        I understand that there always will be fans who try to attend every gig, but at least I’m not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • kkdowning

      I have thought the same thing, Justin. It would be awkward to sit next to the guy that you just took for ten times the ticket amount. It’s weird though, some scalpers actually seem to believe they are doing you a service. Maybe that’s just what they make themselves think so that they can sleep at night.

  17. Tom

    Hello, fellow fans, ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Let me tell you about a crazy idea I just had:

    What if all smartphones and cameras are banned from the venue and we all get a professionally filmed video (maybe just a best-of of some songs) and some good-quality photo shots (maybe from different angles) from the very concert we went to from the organizer/or-whoever-does-this-sort-of-thing? Would that not be nice? And would it not prevent any distracting photo taking or filming? Would it not prevent gruesome videos of the show showing up on YouTube that do not even capture a glimpse of what it really was like?

    Just a crazy idea… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    -Tom

    • SilverCheek

      I have since long not even searched for post uploaded pics or videos from others. They totally ruin my experience. I live the show as it happens, with my eyes.

    • Andrea

      Yes!! Although I’d love a full concert video instead of bits of songs. It’s time for a new one already, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Tommy

      I was at a Who concert back in 2002. At the end of the show, the lights came up and an announcement was made. “If you would like a soundboard recording of tonight’s show, log on to “the music.com” and you can order it” as well as any of the other shows from this tour. Proceeds went to The Who’s charity of choice, Teenage Cancer Trust I think. The following tour I think they also offered the DVD as well. I always wondered why this isn’t done more often. Seems like a no brainer.

      People filming the show are so annoying.

      • FEd

        Absolutely, Tommy. I saw them in 2007 and bought their DVD in this way. No frills packaging marked ‘all profits to benefit charities supported by The Who’. Great idea and a far greater memento than anything I could have recorded on my phone.

      • SilverCheek

        Went and saw The Specials in Stockholm a couple of years back and at the merch stand you could buy a copy from tonight’s show, limited to 200 I think. After the show, they actually burned a double CD as we waited and it came in a pre-signed digipak. Really nice.

        Also, Peter Gabriel has been doing this for a while, you can pre-order a soundboard recording of the show you want (even the ones you don’t go to, for the really hardcore fans) and it is sent to you afterwards.

        I would rather spend money on something like that than on a t-shirt or a bottle opener. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • kkdowning

        I believe Pearl Jam issues a live recording of every concert. At least they used to do this. They make some money and fans get a great souvenir.

  18. tim

    Mr Gilmour won’t be happy with all the moaning, get a grip, people dying in wars, you moaning at tickets on presale.

  19. Vilim Lisica

    fed, hi again from croatia, thanks one more time for a pre sale code and for another dream come true, mr.gilmour live from rah stalls section m row 1! oh man, just thinking about that makes me go crazy as a big gilmour fan his music is an inspiration, pure genius! the tickets are in right hands. shine on…

  20. GlastoEls

    Delighted to have tickets in Friday’s general sale, completing the hat trick (2006, 2015, and 2016, all Albert Hall, all in the fantastic Grand Tier).

    New album by September or is that wishful thinking! ;D

  21. walkingdude

    I sat ready at my computer at work, tried to buy tickets the second they went for sale. It said “no tickets available” at once…tried several times for over 1 hour. still negative result. after 90 minutes tickets was already on viagogo for over 600ยฃ. How is it possible that there is no tickets after 10 seconds?

    It is just retarded that the only way to get tickets is pre-sale or to “know a guy”. And don’t try to tell me that none of the presale tickets goes to the black market…..

    How is a “regular Joe” be able to get to see a DG show when it is like this?

    Well I guess I have to live on the memories from 20 years ago… ๐Ÿ™ But this just makes me sad.

  22. Ore

    I am also trying to get tickets for 2016, maybe England maybe Poland, this year. I have been in Verona, Florence and London twice and the one at Royal Albert Hall was the most spectacular!!!

  23. Maxinux

    Hey FEd, did you remember the last post with so many comments???? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Still waiting one Radio City ticket appears…… ๐Ÿ™

  24. Ore

    I tried yesterday to get my tickets but nothing (I was 5239 in the queue) when was my turn I found just expensive tickets (cheapest 399) I had my password from DG newsletter but I saw it too late, I read that someone used it after 4pm and it worked. I didn’t do that. ๐Ÿ™ So stupid!!

    Anyway, I found a nice place where to read and to share what I like, oh sorry, what we like: me and my 3 yo son. ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. Ester

    I don’t know why I didn’t get the code .. I really would like to see David Gilmour again in September 2016 at RAH, but without the code, to buy tickets was impossible for me. I am very disappointed.

  26. Damiano cunningham

    Off topic:

    Really bad situation up here. Cumbria flooding, Keswick, Cockermouth evacuated, Carlisle people stuck in train station, west coast line under water, all roads except one shut where I am. I’ve got 4×4, may go out to try and help.

    Damian

      • Damiano cunningham

        I’m fortunate not to have been flooded except roads were either washed away or under water. Even a 4×4 would have been useless and we were told not to venture out as could impede emergency services. The RNLI came up from Wales, bloody heroes and even from London. It’s still a bad situation but the water’s dropping. Such a lovely city and people, they don’t deserve this.

        • FEd

          It must be awful. The images of people being helped out of their homes, unable to stop the murky water from entering their homes and ruining their belongings, breaks your heart.

  27. Shugster

    An observation/opinion on beating the touts.

    I broadly agree with the RAH’s policy regarding the buyer’s name on the ticket and all other holders having to be accompanied by the person booking the tickets. However (as has been mentioned elsewhere on this blog), some people might want to buy tickets as a present or as a favour to people who might not have a credit card or sufficient funds at the time. In these cases, the buyer might not necessarily have any intention of attending the concert(s).

    When I applied for tickets for Roger Waters at Wembley Stadium, there was a facility for purchasers to receive a gift card to accompany tickets bought as presents. I thought this was a great idea and all that’s really required by the ticket agency/venue is the buyers details and, most importantly, the name of the main guest who would be responsible for accompanying guests.

    I understand that this idea is maybe a bit late now, considering all tickets are now sold, but I think this could work well in the future.

    My apologies Fed if this has been discussed/debated previously.

    • FEd

      Not at all, all feedback is very welcome – and a gift card is a very good idea. I wonder how open to abuse that is, though.

    • Tom

      Have a look at my comment regarding ticket sales above if you want. I think it would be good if all the people who attend a concert have their name written on the ticket. My suggestion was that it should be allowed to change at most one name (if someone can’t make it and such) after buying. Also the one who buys the tickets need not necessarily be the one on any of the tickets, but the names must be added while buying the tickets.

      Just my thoughts.

      -Tom

    • kkdowning

      Pearl Jam does a pretty good job fighting scalpers. They do not pass out fan club tickets until the day of the show. So, unless that show has GA floor, nobody know where they are sitting until they pick up their tickets. Sure, you can sell them between the time you pick them up and when you enter the building. But you can’t list them online. Not flawless. But not bad.

  28. Gertjan

    Really glad that I was able to buy tickets for the show on September 30th. My first time at the Royal Albert Hall. I did manage to see a show at the Royal Festival Hall, way back in 2002 which was awesome. And the AHM show at Cadogan Hall. But somehow never managed to get tickets for the RAH shows. Great!! The password I received from the mailing list worked perfectly well.

    I saw Mr. Gilmour in Oberhausen this year and liked the show but I think the 2006 setlist fitted better. Hope he changes his setlist for the upcoming shows and puts in some more melodic songs like ‘Childhood’s End’, ‘Near The End’ or ‘Where We Start’.

    Best wishes, Gertjan (The Netherlands).

  29. Ore

    Hi FED, in the booking system of RAH there must be a problem with the prices, because it is written 798.00 (Grand Tier Box Hospitality) per person but when you go to check the total for 12 person the price is 4,788.00 so 399.00 per person!!!??? Same price for (Loggia Box Hospitality) 3,192.00/8 = 399.00. For sure there is something wrong.

    And also, was not there a limit of 4 tickets per person where you can (must) buy tickets for 8/12 people??!!

    But maybe this is a rule just for us common people, for the higher levels is possible to buy from 8 to 12 tickets!

    Someone would like to share a box with me??? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Peter Jenner

      The Boxes in the Royal Albert Hall were sold off on 999 year leases to help fund the building of the venue in 1871. Queen Victoria bought one! Therefore they are privately owned. They pay about ยฃ3500 service charge to the hall. In return they can be provide a useful cash income for the owners as they are allowed to rent them out for most events. Usually through an event management Company.

      This may be why there are different terms for boxes as they would be outside the scope of concert organisers.

      How do I know this? I took an organised tour of the Hall just prior to David’s first night there in September and the tour guide told us! He turned up on stage just noodling around, looking relaxed, plucking the odd guitar string while the lights were being checked.

      Peter

      • Ore

        Ciao Peter, thank you so much for your explanations, now is all clear, it is indeed a good suggestion because I managed to buy the tickets for RAH so I will also make the tour. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Maya

    I’m so grateful for blogger’s pre-sale. I realize that for as many people who are delighted by them, there are just as many that are upset by them. But I wanted to say a Thank You for giving us the codes. I’m eternally grateful.

    Hope you’re having a great holiday season FEd and community!

  31. Tom R

    There’s never going to be a perfect system for selling tickets but I think a presale given to people through an official website to people who have signed up and occasionally contribute (and I really haven’t contributed half as much as I should have done over the years so no-one can say it only goes to the blog’s favourites!) is fairer than presales based on which credit card company or mobile company you use. And it’s definitely better than the touts getting 100% of the tickets. I know I’m biased because I got tickets, but I’d still support the idea even if it applied to other bands that I like but haven’t signed up to official sites or contributed anything to them.

    It’s certainly more fair than FEd having to deal with all the fallout for a decision that I assume was someone else’s. Still, they’ve found the blog now so I’m sure they won’t complain if there’s a next time.

    Are you visiting the RAH next September FEd or will you be too busy dodging the pitchfork mob?

    • FEd

      I don’t think I’ll be there; as indescribably wonderful as it was last time, I’m quite happy to have left a few tickets for someone else to claim.

      No pitchforks allowed at the Royal Albert Hall, by the way. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Tom R

        Aww banning pitchforks is no fun. Can I have a burning torch if it’s got my name on it?

        • Jill

          I agree. I think the consistently positive tone is what makes this site so special, and keeps drawing me back to it. That said, it is getting a bit tedious to read all the complaints about the presale. Like they say, ‘no good deed shall go unpunished’.

          You’re a saint Fed.

      • JulieD

        Same here FEd. I did not buy a ticket for the same reason. So someone who missed out last time, might get a chance this time around. I am content that I saw David at the RAH once. ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Ore

    Incredible FED!!!! I (my wife, my English is really bad) just called (30 minutes ago) to RAH and I got 4 tickets – 2 for 29th and 2 for 30th 2nd tier. Try!!!!

    I hope this can help someone to have some tickets.

    Good Luck to everybody.

  33. Francesco

    What a mess….I was so happy that I realise now I forgot one thing: thanks FEd!!

    And thanks to my wife that supported me to realise the dream to see DG in a music temple!

  34. Salvo

    Hi you all

    Well, even if late, I would like to say thank you to the great ones who sent the newsletters with the presale code. I was able to buy the tickets for one RAH venue, and it’s amazing!!!

    I can understand the feelings of whom wasn’t able to do it, I was in the same some months ago. But now I was lucky. It’s a dream that comes true.

    Thank you again guys, thank you very much indeed!!!!

    Have a nice day
    Salvo

  35. Maya

    The more I listen to RTL, the more I absolutely adore it. There is so much quintessential Gilmour on this album and he and Polly have really hit it out of the park with the lyrics. I’m so thrilled that I’ll have the opportunity to see him 5 times between Chicago and Los Angeles, largely thanks to you FEd. I’ve seen online that he’s due to perform in South America in a few days. I can’t wait to see the set lists, they’ve been brilliant thus far.

    Honestly, these upcoming shows are the best life gift I’ve received since the birth of my daughter (whose middle name is Gilmour)!

    To all those who will have the privilege of seeing him in South America, cheers! Wishing you some fantastic shows!

    real music lovers, real fans should always be present at events like gilmour at rah or any live show but london and rah is something special for us because it’s just magic to see david playing his music in the town that we love so much!!!! we love you david, love your work and music and we love you fed. thanks a lot for the tickets, it means so much to us!!!

    just to make my self clear, we got only two tickets, one for my girlfriend and one for me and we never buy more that we need!!! nobody should buy tickets to sell them after.

    thanks a lot fed and have a nice day!

    Do you think there is a chance that dates in other European countries will follow?

    Will any of the 2016-shows be filmed for maybe a future live DVD/Blu-Ray release?

    Have a nice day!

    Fed,

    Will the set list for the gigs in South America be posted on the evening, as they were for the European dates earlier this year?

    I had a dream last night that David will perform an outdoor concert in a Nordic country in July. I couldn’t make out which one, however it seemed to get really cold by the end of the concert ๐Ÿ˜ฎ …

    Will be interesting to see when any future dates in Europe are announced if this fits. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      He is supposed to be playing an open air in Cologne in July. There are a number of us here in the starting blocks and hoping. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am looking to travel all the way from Panama to London for the RAH concerts in September. I am purchasing tickets through getmein.com but I am a bit confused with what I am reading about the booker’s name being on the ticket…if I am purchasing resale from getmein.com, will my name be on the ticket?

    Please help!! It will be terrible if I made the trip and then I’m unable to enter the venue! Thank you all!

      They know what they’re doing, I expect you’ll be fine (I obviously can’t guarantee that), but this is why we always strongly advise against buying tickets from anyone other than the offical agents. It’s always a risk.

        Thank you so much Fed! Unfortunately I have tickets to attend the concert at Arc et Salines in France, but won’t be able to make it…so, now my only last opportunity is in London and the only way to get tickets now appears to be from getmein.com.
