Default Wanting to swap standing tickets for seated at the 02 arena

Hi Everyone,

I managed to get 2 standing tickets for the upcoming foos gig at the 02 arena. However recently my health has taken a turn for the worse and I don't think I'll be able to stand for the gig. Is there anyone who currently has seating tickets that would prefer standing?

We could meet at the arena and simply swap once through the ticket/ID checks.

Thanks!

Melissa

I have two friends that are hoping to swap their seats for standing.. but is it even possible?

I've never tried to go between the two.. aren't they completely separate levels/sections? Might be hard if they're doing some sort of ID check?

If they walk in together they can ask the guys to give the wristbands to your friends and then the other persons friends can go to your friends allocated seats

Maybe, but isn't the standing entrance straight ahead as you enter the o2 whereas some of the seated entrances are right around the opposite side of the arena. Not sure how it would work then...

Maybe I'm being daft and it's simple to walk between the two once inside

Hi

I am sure the swap has been organised now but I also have two seating tickets and would be interested in swapping with you.

The seats are level 4 block 409. They were the mid range priced seats. Let me know if you are interested?

I've been to about 100 gigs at the O2

You won't be able to meet in between - and the standing has a separate entrance and will have wristbands for standing only....

Not sure what best option is - other than to potentially go to box office together and explain situation - they shouldn't have a problem with it - and may be able to issue different tickets etc... switching seats as opposed to selling to strangers in no way should bother them

Hi guys,

Sorry for my late response! Was expecting to get an email notifying me that there were replies and as I'm unwell I'm not on the computer much!

Sending some DM's now.

Melissa

I agree with raphph here and the fact there are different entrances for standing and seating.

I don't know if it is an option as I have never used it...
But the Sky Backstage Pass bar might be an option...
You can pre-book up to 4 free tickets for sky customers and get in an hour before doors open to their exclusive bar.

Then you enter the arena through this area...
Might be an option.

For some reason mine booked me 3 instead of 1
So If you or anyone wants to get two people in I have two spare

The best thing about this I can see is they throw their doors open into the arena at 6:30 the same time the O2 arena doors open..
So in theory blagging a front standing spot might not be to difficult.

No free beer though
