    Seems strange that you wont get paid until after the event as I thought Ticketmaster cancel your tickets and issue the buyer with new barcodes .
    I cant see why they need to wait until after the event to pay you.

    Agree with this. I'd much rather get rid of the tickets through Toutless or Ticketswap

    I know it is strange but I guess there's nothing I can do now. I didn't realize I wouldn't get the payment straight away. Its a bit annoying. Still I am glad to have sold them at face value and be free of the hassle of re-selling. Its all done for you

    Do you make much loss from the initial price you paid?

    my guess, as I suspect you do too, is that the buyer paid over face value and the seller simply recouped their price. TM being the sly dog scum they are might even hide this from the sellers.

    It is a very sneaky way to circumvent touting laws, they still profit hugely and just mask it as ridiculously overpriced "service" and "handling" fees which are all done electronically.

    I had said this

    TM seemingly do not let you sell above face either, so the seller cannot profit, but they, TM, sure as hell do.

    Well you list the price you want to sell them for (you cannot list higher than you paid), I listed mine just €3 under what I paid. So presumably when this goes through, I'll have this figure back in my account.



    There is a disclaimer when you put them up for sale that ticketmaster will sell your tickets at a higher price to cover service costs. But the seller doesn't see what they are actually sold for.

    Just wondering, would anyone know what the likelihood of meeting the lads before/after the gig would be? I'd imagine hanging around the stage side entrance? Would love to get an autograph.

    I have had luck on the side exit there (Sycamore St.) in the past. Be prepared to wait a while though.

    They drink in the Mercantile

    I imagine James and Sean will be there for the Liverpool game in the afternoon

    That's where I met them a few times before - James was by himself watching the Forest play off game, the time after that they were watching Liverpool v Chelsea in the half 5 game before the Holy Bible gig

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,999 ✭✭✭lukin


    Does anyone know in what order the album will be played in?
    Will it be the same order as the album listing?


  • Registered Users Posts: 867 ✭✭✭laros

    I had a look in the Mercantle a while ago. No sign of them, but I might have another look in a bit. Find them in the end? 😂

    How do you know?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,672 ✭✭✭✭MisterAnarchy


    Hoping we get longer than a 90 minute set tonight but highly doubt it .
    I cannot fathom why a band with such a back catalogue don't play longer gigs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,861 ✭✭✭✭Rothko

    I hope not as that's one of my favourite songs.

    Its a few years since I seen them but doubt you’ll even get 90 minutes. And no encore is the norm I think?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,332 ✭✭✭Always Be Closing


    It'll be

    Everlasting
    Tolerate
    YSTSFMH
    Drowning
    Tsunami
    Empire
    Working
    Tender and Tired
    Born a Girl
    Be Natural
    Black Dog
    Masses
    SYMM

    Motorcycle Emptiness
    International Blue
    Faster
    KC
    Walk me to the Bridge
    Distant Colours
    Hold Me Like a Heaven
    LTD
    You Love Us
    Design

    Something like that

    Close but no cigar


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,369 ✭✭✭acquiescefc


    Would've loved Valley Boy. God I loved that tune.
    Got Sleepflower tho.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9 ScreamToASigh


    Close but no cigar

    Yes, the Scruff Monkey is correct, close but no cigar!

    The final setlist in order was the following:

    The Everlasting
    You Stole the Sun
    Ready for Drowning
    Tsunami
    My Little Empire
    I'm not Working
    You're Tender and You're Tired
    Born a Girl
    Be Natural
    Black Dog on my Shoulder
    Prologue to History
    S.Y.M.M
    Tolerate This

    Sleepflower
    Your Love Alone
    International Blue
    Motorcycle Emptiness
    Solitude Sometimes Is
    People Give In
    You Love Us
    No Surface All Feeling
    Design For Life

    I didn't expect Prologue, Sleepflower or Solitude to be played.

    The rest I expected seeming that it's their usual singles.

    Solitude sometimes is was a nice surprise. Wonder if they played it all much since 04 tour. Only tour I've heard any lifeblood stuff.

    That was also bloody loud.
