it is only possible if you find someone with two tickets who wants to use only one and will let you be their plus one. I was offered TWO tickets yesterday for tonight but couldn't get past how you deal with the ID thing.

Well, long shot I know, but if anyone has a spare +1 please let me know, it will be the first time in a very very long time that I haven't been to a gig with my hubby (or him with me - I seem to be predicting the outcome of our tournament!!)

Thanks lovelies, your always awesome (even when judging a person by the number of posts!!)

Get in line lol

Seriously though, I feel your pain. Me and the missus have one ticket between us, was hoping we would be able to get another but no luck so far good luck to you, I'm gonna let her go and wait outside for her. I've seen foos 4 or 5 times but she's only seen them the once, as much as I really wanna get in it means more to her. We had our first prop per date 3 years back at the Milton Keynes gig x

That's an interesting point, and one we are currently discussing - primarily because I might go but bought in hubby's name. I'll have the card and paperwork, but I'd like to think I don't look like a Mr!!

Also, just read some of the recent posts about buying a single ticket... We have, whilst it's a pretty tough decision, at least one of us will get to see them

When was the last time you looked at a map? Scotland is a fair bit further away from London than Sheffield FFS.

Some of us need to give notice before taking time off work, and even then there is no guarantee of getting train tickets at short notice on the East Coast line. Add a hotel on for the night and you could be looking at £300+ for a day trip to London.

The real question is why they felt they couldn't spread the 4 gigs across the country. When in Scotland they always mention how one of their greatest gigs was at The Barrowlands yet it obviously wasn't great enough for them to travel north of London.

Haha - just read some recent posts! Made me laugh because I should have read them first!!!

We have both seen them a fair few times and very lucky to get to a couple of the smaller gigs, we were actually expecting not to get any as we have been so lucky in the past (even winning on Radio 1 - how I'll never know). If your lovely wife wants company, and isn't fussed about being right at the front (I'm getting old) it would be lovely to have company!!

Its a good idea as it eliminates touts but a real pain for us without a ticket!

As I've already said I'm gonna go up with her and wait outside. You never know I might luck out and find someone with a plus 1

Parted those electronic seas and walked through into the world of the plump and full baskets of tickets.

that was the problem - I just don't look like a bloke either! However if you have a joint account could you use hubby's credit card as your ID? It might not work… recently went to a gig with similar "lead person" rules and my husband offered over his credit card as my ID - they were not impressed, as I bought the tickets it had to be mine :/

Well, I have my card too, same account and all that, so with both of them I would hope it should be OK... I will 'try' and call tomorrow to ask... Not sure how flexible they will be but I assume we're not the only ones this would apply to?

Eek! Re: UK bound

Think I will go down to venue anyway tomorrow.Will be nice to mix with Foos Fans young or old(I'm in the old category)!! Can travel on the Oxford tube and get at least a measly 3 quid off with my old fart ticket.Nearly the price of a pint.!!May have an extremely slim chance of getting a ticket if someone's no 2 doesn't turn up.Has anyone on here any idea if you would hear the music from outside there like they could in Brghton?

No disabled option, this was on their Q&A page

If I am a disabled person what is the best way for me to make a booking?

The best way to book any special seating requirements is to call us on 0844 811 0051.

Many venues handle disabled bookings directly, as they need to talk to the customers to determine specific needs and therefore the best seating/allocation. If this is the case, we'll usually be able to provide you with the venue's direct phone number. For some venues, we can book accessible seats, but again, we prefer to speak to customers to ensure they are given the best options regarding their requirements.

For these reasons, most events are not set up to book disabled tickets online, for which we apologise. So please, give us a call and we'll do what we can to help. (Which is to do fuck all!!!)
