You can always sign-up for the London Stadium pre-sale:
https://r1.surveysandforms.com/f2454f95-e62mljf3

This is open to everyone for the Thursday pre-sale (vs the Album pre-sale which is on Tuesday) but would give you another roll of the dice.

Do we think the three UK shows mean that the Foo's popularity is not as much as it once was? Or do we think that they know there's festival dates upcoming also..?

I think it's a bit of everything really. This year they've done Glastonbury and the o2... so maybe they are just waiting to see how these tickets sales go before adding extra dates.

Btu I do believe they've got festival dates to be announced

It was a question rather than a statement. However.

Stadium Of Light - 49K
Hampden - 70K (estimate 52K for football), up to 90K for concerts
Emirates OT - 50K
Wembley - 90K
Wembley - 90K

Total 349K

Eithad - 60K
London Stadium - 80K
London Stadium - 80K

Total 220K

There are potentially 129K less tickets on sale for this tour than the last.

And 2 stadiums worth less???

At the o2 I was surrounded by first timers (we chatted to quite a few people and none had seem them before) and I think more people are beginning to like them now.

They got a huge amount of exposure from Glastonbury, if anything I would guess it increased the UK demand for tickets

Could be that they're getting older, found the last tour difficult, and want to have fewer dates this time around?

I think this has more to do with it, not so much getting older as I think Dave and the rest will be rocking until they resemble the Run video, but definitely the fact they will have been touring solidly for 8 months or more by then.

Being a bit thick here, but have only ever stood on the pitch at stadium concerts before but wouldn't want to/wouldn't be allowed to as will have a child with me this time (assuming they are allowed, have asked LS and they say age restrictions will be available when tickets go on sale). So we would need actual seats, what/where would we even want in an ideal world? Obviously we won't be getting a bar package!
I'm wondering if I could ask on here on Tuesday if anyone can read their t&c's once they get tickets? It would be good to know where we stand.
<Probably all pointless as I cannot sit glued to a computer on any day - if only the sale could have been one week later because that is Half Term >

Sticking a moustache on your kid usually works though.

I thought 14 was normally the unaccompanied age though, not 'no-one under 14 is allowed in at all'?
Will bear in mind the moustache idea, maybe a full Dave-beard might be better?

why are so many people getting confused by this?!? There are 2 pre-sales. One on Tues (for those who pre-ordered the album) and one on Wed for those on the mailing list. Most of us will have have access to both pre-sales. Same link, different codes.
