I've got questions too :
Will this site www.gigsandtours.com be the only way to buy tickets on Friday ?
Do you know if we can print tickets from this site ?
How expensive are usually tickets in England ?

That's pretty much all for now, thanks !

i would say the tickets work out about £30-40 each
i dont think you will be able to print tickets in all honesty
im not sure whether that is the only site, sorry

gigs and tours or seetickets .com as they are also known as dont provide self print tickets,and they ususally send them out last minute which is annoying especially when youhave to wait in for thepost.the sheffield tickets are £38 and its all seated.

Oh ok, it was written it could be possible but ''limited to select venues and events'' so I was hoping it could work this time
I'll try the See ones then, and cross fingers to recieve tickets in France not too late.

Thanks a lot for the help :)

i wont be shelling out £40 to sit down, thats a fact
I went to see Kanye West at this venue and was offered seated tickets, turned them down, and i regretted it.

The stage set-up for that gig wasn't high enough, so you couldn't really see that much of the stage without either being lanky or by getting much closer, which didn't appeal to me as it was boiling hot down there.

I will be looking for decent seated tickets methinks. Though i must stress that the stage set-up may be different for this and I'm wrong. Anyone know if they are doing the stage in the middle thing? Or the usual type stage?

Anyway if its stage at one end, I'd take seated.

but you cant get into it sitting down. a gig is always soo much better if your standing right at the front

I'm not going to this gig to rock out to be honest, think it will be a better experience for me, if i have a good view. People will stand up anyway.

But each to their own.
