i'm hoping more standing tickets will be available on Monday
at the moment it seems like there aren't any available.

If I can get tickets..then I'll be one step closer to deciding if I can and how the hell
I'm going to make it there. :)

I really hope they play a usual length concert....but it seems they have several other supporting bands

hmm I don't really know any of the other bands..and I
would prefer if they didn't play.
Only Cure :)

Pre-sale tickets are available again through Ticketmaster. 

http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/event/1200415F7D1A445E?did=uknmeps&brand=theo2

Nothing on the floor, but a few alright 100 level spots are coming up.  I'd imagine floor seats will be available once the general sale begins.  Get 'em quick, though.  They'll surely be gobbled up in no time at all.


btw, it says "under 16's not permitted in the standing area".  Is this common in London, Europe in general, the arena, or perhaps just for this event?  Sorry kids, but I like that rule.  :smth023

So, when do people think there will be more standing tickets on sale? On Monday?

I don't understand how this works, is it just a presale until Monday and then more tickets are being released or what?



OK, I understand now. It's currently a presale, but the general sale begins at 9am on Monday. Crowbi, are you sure that more standing will be released? I really, really don't want seats.

That's the way it normally works with Ticketmaster and presales in the U.S (it's an attempt to get more good seats to the fans instead of scalpers, though a password is always used).  I can't be sure about The U.K., but would assume only a portion of the standing tickets were sold during the pre.

Thank you. That's how it works here too, including the password bit, that's what has thrown me off. I'll be skipping school on Monday to ensure my tickets  :smth023

The 'no under 16s' in standing area is pretty common in the UK as a whole, can't speak for the whole of Europe though.  As its fair to assume this will be something of a Greatest Hits set(and half the length) I'll hold off until a proper 'Cure show'.  The L.A. thing sounds appealing actually....(*packs bags/toothbrush*)
