Hopefully sooner rather then later to ease the pain!

I missed today's circus as I was on the M1 - probably just as well after reading the thread!

A lot of people are well pissed off with these gigs that were advertised for the entire UK when they are completely inaccessible to those of us that live and work nowhere near London.

If they want to do a week of dates at Wembley rather than play the likes of Murrayfield, Newcastle or Sunderland then they can fuck right off. That is fucking selfish and ignorant.

At least from the end of next week I won't have to worry about UK dates again.

I did that. It's all I could get. Got a second. It's not incomprehensible.

I have a love hate relationship with them
I've lost a lot of good tickets through their site being attroutious
But then again I got my Dingwall's tickets through them, and sound city players!
So, you win some you lose some
But def not my favourite place to buy tickets. I don't get why they don't give you check out time once you have something in your basket. That's the way most other vendors work these days

If anyone finds video of The Pretender from last night in Brighton, apparently they debuted a snippet of new material right after it?

Just got in from the third stressful day. I didn't manage to get tix, but my hubby got 1 so we are currently playing rock, paper, scissors to see who will be attending tomorrow.

I guess we are very lucky because we also have a friend who got 1 for Brighton (and had an awesome time) she kindly bought back a t-shirt for me too which I shall wear with pride is weekend!! I am really pleased that after being a long term fan she finally got to see them in a tiny venue!!

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!!)
Xx

Lol.

You love them but can't travel?

If the final gig was in Sheffield as briefly thought yesterday I was planning to drive straight from work to make it and drive home after.
