    They were probably just seeing how popular it was before making them available, saturday is sold out now.

    Either that or it's a big fat dirty scam.

    I got about halfway through an order on tickeline and then it expired my reservation while failing to accept my address details.

    Trying for Sunday, but I'm not holding out much hope.

    I guess I need to hope that they come to London later in the year...

    That was my other consideration. I'd much prefer to see them at Brixton or Shepherds Bush or something.

    If they can sell 150000 tickets in 15 mins I'm not sure Brixton or Shepherds Bush will be big enough! :o)
    Although I guess for a big tour the supply of tickets will be much greater.. I certainly hope so!!!

    This is also why popular gigs are full of rich cardigan wearing tory boys nowadays.

    Yeh a lot of that is also do with some banks running special ticket services that give their "premier" customers first dibs.

    I rarely bother anymore because of the annoying hassle using these shitty ticket websites.

    A friend of a friend knows the barber of a dentist of someone who once sat next to a guy who used to babysit Johnny's pet hamster when he was away at the shops, buying maltesers.

    That was the original rumoured dates - it gives you an idea of the venues at least.

    Ended up with non for any of the days, a bloody shambles. How can these ticket sites fail to build a system that can cope with demand. Its really not that hard to build something load balanced, or even try something simpler, there's so many approaches better than the current systems.

    For one, why don't they simply require (or allow) you to register your details in advance so all you need to do is login earlier in the morning, then hit a one click checkout once they are available.

    At least put all the required details on one form, and submit that in one go instead of making you go to 5 pages in a sequence, anyone of which could time out sending you back to the beginning. I got to the penultimate page on ticketmaster, entered my login details, got the password wrong, and instead of giving me another try, it crashed.

    eBay and the ticket resale sites are already flooded with 150+ tickets, it really shouldn't be allowed. I have no problem someone selling on a ticket they legitimately can't use, but purchasing tickets for instant profit is IMO scummy behaviour. If I was in a band I wouldn't allow my fans to be treated in such a way. But then they have just made over 12m in ticket sales, and that's not even adding in the hospitality tickets!

    May have someones spare but not holding out. If they play up in Newcastle I'll be there like a shot.

    Its seems anybody who tried ticketmaster (shite site) didn't get them, anybody who used Ents24 or gigsandtours got them (me)

    True, waited ages on ticketmaster. Got straight through on gigs and tours.

    Didn't manage to get any... but my mate did so I'm going the on the sat \o/

    I thought gigs and tours became see tickets so I never even tried them... I see they're separate now though. Noted for next time.
