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.
