    Likewise, its a joke that there could be people potentially scattered all over the seated area, they'd never close off the top sections and bump everyone up to the front? :P

    Seems to be the norm with most O2 presales torby.......

    even if it had sold out there'd always be the chance some tickets would be available today - returns, cancellations etc.........
    but they were great seats to be still floating around at this stage.....

    About 20 years myself..and I'm only 27 :D Can blame my da on that one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 61 ✭✭torby


    did another search no expensive tickets came back...any price available tickets showing block k...what gives....glad I'm not for Roger Waters....lol...


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,435 ✭✭✭wandatowell


    When I was ordering last Thursday there was seat available in Block E but when I eventually went to order I was offered seat in Blocks G and A which I think are on the wings. But later on Thursday night I went back again I managed to pick up a in Block C, happy days!

    Got say its weird as the "Best Available" option seems to be a bit of a scam really.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,651 ✭✭✭delbertgrady


    Good seats often - but not always - become available if O2 Club customers and/or corporate sponsors don't take them. They're put back on the system in the last few days before the show. For example, I was offered the middle of the second row of the centre block (Block D) for Eric Clapton last Monday, the day of the concert. Since tonight's show is the "optimum standing" configuration, that's effectively the same as being offered Row 6 for tonight, as Row 6 is the second row, 'cos the seats start in Row 5 for Rush.

    A mate of mine just texted me saying he saw Geddy Lee having a smoke outside the windjammer pub. That can't be right.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,651 ✭✭✭delbertgrady


    Didn't Geddy quit years ago?
