2 tickets... Block 101 which is virtually on the stage.

I agree with Bucko, even if you have an account why does it take so long with TM

Hi everyone.

I have 4 tickets seated next to each other for the Thursday show, and am looking to swap them for 4 tickets for the Friday show.

The tickets are in Block 214, Row Q.

If anyone can help, let me know.

Thanks,

Dave.

Aye, you know where I was for Twisted Logic? Block 211 Row M. Think yourselves lucky!

I got Block 118 for Sheffield this time, which I'm flipping thrilled about, but that's neither here nor there I guess, aka. wrong thread, but the Sheffield thread is dead so I'm starting to wish I'd booked for MEN now :(

I have just checked the ticketmaster ticket checker thingy and it says my order is being prepared for dispatch,so maybe we will get our tickets quite quickly!
