    Brilliant seats!
    Slap bang in the middle of the stage.
    Good one.

    That’s good so, lucky to get them as I taught good seats would have been snapped up in the
    Pre-sales. Don’t go to the 3 arena much so took first tickets offered:

    There have been single tickets poping up on T/M but every time I clicked on it, it's gone.

    Loads of tickets for this have been held back to drive the hype and demand for platinum and vip packs.

    Hi got tickets for block k row 33 looking at the map it looks like row 33 is the front row of the block would that be right. Just checking as even though it's block k would be handy if no one was in front to block the view.

    I got two in Block B for the Friday, but they're on the inner edge, so that's fine. They initially offered me the back of the hall, very high up in K, and then right on the edge of G, right beside the wall, but I wanted something more central. Thankfully, my gamble in searching again paid off. This is clearly one of the biggest demand shows of the year.

    Yep there's loads of tickets for both of them still for sale.
    Guess they reduced the number for general sale and just moved them into VIP/Platinum instead.
    Just a pity they can't sell them at those prices.:rolleyes:

    He has added a fifth concert in London at the O2 .
    5 nights in a row.
    Crazy ,what people will fork out for nowadays.


  • Registered Users Posts: 173 ✭✭boyznoise


    The amount of holdbacks for VIP and Platinum is insane


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,622 ✭✭✭✭okidoki987


    You have to laugh
    Aiken Promotions have warned people not to purchase tickets which have popped up on secondary sales site Viagogo "as firstly it’s wrong and secondly there is no proof that these tickets actually exist."


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,749 ✭✭✭Zardoz


    I don't think Jackman will be doing much singing in these shows .
    He has just added a matinee show for Birmingham and he is playing 5 nights in a row in London as well.
    Looks a ridiculously intense schedule so he will probably only sing some of the songs and have the orchestra and other singers perform the rest.

    He only has about ten songs anyway from his movies and shows .I'd expect there to be a lot of talking ... Perhaps guest performances..

    I know he's older now, but that's no different from his Oklahoma! schedule. In keeping with West End practice, it likely had two matinees a week, so eight performances in total, Monday to Saturday. He's probably more than capable of this.

    Who said it's just songs from his movies? The man comes from a musical theatre background, I'm sure he'll sing whatever show tunes he fancies.

    Yeah MCD has a cheek, the amount of platinum tickets held back is shocking, Seatwave has well and truly been replaced by the platinum juggernaut which is worse, less tickets on sale for general and platinum tickets priced far higher than tout prices.

    The artist is who I would be blaming for platinum tickets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 173 ✭✭boyznoise


    I wasn't blaming the promoter, TM & the artist are to blame

    Extra Friday afternoon show added for those that missed out

    That sold out too . Not long after the first one did.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,829 ✭✭✭Toast


    The matinee show is not on sale yet. He's doing two on the Friday now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 138 ✭✭whatever99


    I got 6 tickets for block N. I just took whatever came up first. Are they crap seats? Row 51. Never been to the 3 Arena.

    Madness...he's now added a third "day" and playing twice on Friday!

    Doubt he ever anticipated this demand but oh well he is making the most of it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,485 ✭✭✭harr


    Jesus I wasn’t expecting this demand...herself wanted to go but I wasn’t to pushed. I like his stuff but am apprehensive to what a concert might be like.
    I was under the impression the tickets would be plentiful and I had loads of time to get them. She insisted I go on line at 9 yesterday morning and glad I did now or I would have been in some serious ****...selling out 3 concerts in the 3 arena is fairly impressive for a show that wasn’t even advertised that much..

    You’re right at the very back, if not actually the back row itself. At least its not a side on view of the stage which are the worst in the house.

    Hi all,

    Myself and my husband tried so hard to get tickets last week for the show. Kids love it. Just wondering if anyone has Presale three code for tickets for the extra matinee show? Or even know the best way to ensure tickets?

    Thank you

    Not sure if there will be a presale. Get the ticket master app on your phone and get your credit card details etc set up on it. Log in before 9am Tuesday (like 8.45am) and choose the hugh jackman concert - you’ll see a countdown clock ticking. As soon as 9am comes choose best available and take the first tickets offered. I did that yesterday and it worked (my pc was still loading at 9am and I already had my tickets). Good luck for Tuesday!

    That’s the exact same way I do it ... pc loading away while I already had tickets got through the app.. maybe I was just lucky..

    Hi,

    Thanks a million for the advice. I didn’t have the app on my phone so have downloaded that now. Hopefully it will work.

    Thanks guys:-)


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,749 ✭✭✭Zardoz


    The only thing with the App is that you cant see the full name of the event at least on Android anyway.
    So it will have 3 listings ,one for normal tickets ,one for VIP and one for Platinum and you cant tell the difference until you click in which is really annoying .
    So if you are in the wrong one ,you wont know until it loads at 9am and by then your chance could be gone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 Lemonboots


    Hi,

    Sorry me again, just wondering if it’s best to use 4g or WiFi on phone (secured access that is-home broadband).

    Last question I promise :-)
