    Anyone seeing any mention of ticket prices for this show anywhere?

    €77-€207

    I was optimistic when I saw the prices starting relatively sane, but didnt know they went that high.... Is there a breakdown of prices/areas anywhere?

    I'd love to go to this, but I aint forking out over 100 bucks for it... the 77 euro seats will be crap

    Surely will sell out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,386 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    All seated its looking like with the flat seats and I'm guessing a few central blocks the €207 price bracket (which is ****ing madness tbh) with the other seats deff over the €100 mark and prob the €77 in the very corners (Block P and H)

    I remember I got a cheap ticket for a Fleetwood mac show a few years back and it was a great view in Block P

    I'll have a look at the presales and see

    Dublin is the opening night of the tour unless they play elsewhere before it eg a few warm up club shows or American leg

    i really wish they had to display the % of tickets available at each price, probably less than 5% at the lowest price, if that

    Very true.
    I'd be surprised if they sell out the €207 seats.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,386 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Three plus sale starts tomorrow at 9am with MCD one Friday 9am

    I'll take a look and see the price brackets

    Reckon the €69.50 will be the cheap ones and there maybe 1/2 middle brackets and then the €207 ones

    Saw this for one of their UK gigs:
    Tickets are priced at £68.15 / £85.35 / £136.50 / £176.50.

    So, those €69.50 in very back of upper balcony, and most expensive on floor. I’l check it out, will pay €120 ish, as its a very rare, and possibly final chance, to see them, and i know a good chunk of their back Catalogue quite well.

    Same as you i'll take a look in the morning and see what the story is. Cant justify paying high prices


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,932 ✭✭✭✭scudzilla


    I'd love to see them BUT there's 3 things that are stopping me.

    1. No Gabriel or Hackett
    2. Prices
    3. Phil Collins, he was in bits a few years ago on his solo tour, sitting down for the majority of it, below is a snippet of the live interview he did yesterday for bbc radio 2, sounded off his tits.

    See this tour being a complete disaster



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,386 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    That was painless surprisingly and got a ticket for Block N Row 34 seat 193 for price level 7

    Price brackets available dis morning excluding fees are
    €199.50
    €159.50
    €110.50
    €99.50
    €69.50


  • Registered Users Posts: 446 ✭✭Scarlet42


    I went for the 110 and got Block A, row 21 .. hope its not too far to the side!

    They were never likely to reunite with Gabriel and Hackett - it's over 40 years since either of them were in the band and all their big "hits" were released after they reduced to a 3 piece.

    The only thing they could really have done with the 5 piece lineup would be a revival of "The Lamb..." but that would be nowhere near as commercially attractive as playing the hits, and Gabriel's never shown much interest in going back to that material anyway (he never does Genesis songs in his own concerts). Also Collins can't drum anymore, so what would he do if PG is on vocals?


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,382 ✭✭✭✭greendom


    Am I too late? Prices vary between 286 - 955. Are scalpers allowed to use ticket master.

    Edit was on viagogo -didn't realise.

    I'm surprised it hasn't been mention that this is the first gig in Ireland with this line up. I'm considering it allot of people think of the pop singles wit this trio but some of the album cuts were just fantastic but Collins health is a major concern he is a poor shadow of his former self and well having a bloke trying to hold himself up with a crutch singing "I Can't Dance" isn't soemthing to look forward to.

    He does look very frail but hopefully his rehab is going well and he can put in a semi good performance on this tour. How was his voice on his recent solo run??

    His voice was in very good form when I seen him. Just couldn't walk without a stick. He seemed to get a bit looser as the tours went on.

    Had a look, but have not booked anything yet.

    Even the €115 tickets were a bit too far back, so as the 3 Presale only has 10 % of total tickets,and from orevious experienxe, they don’t tend to be the “choice” seats on this presale, i will wait, for MCD and general sale, for a better choice.

    I’d also say a second gig likely, they have flexibility before and after the current single gig date.

    the ticket i got cost me €106.65 and i sat in the same block recently and it was a great view. The show was pretty dark but its a decent view of the stage

    3 presale had lots of good tickets. A lot more than usual. I got some flat seats. Lots of good lower tier available still

    The flat seats are a horrendous price

    The point is its limited to 10% of tickets, so there were tickets in all areas, but prefer, to take chances when more of a choice available.

    Went to see him in the Aviva a few years ago, his son was on the drums and did a few numbers on the piano too. It was the best gig I've ever been to, even if he was sitting on a bar stool for all/most of it

    No idea what he's like now but I'll be looking to get tickets

    Its not limited to 10%,the promoter can increase the allocation if they wish .
    On this tour the strategy in the Uk and Ireland is to try and sell out the venue in presale then add a second date.


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


    I'd be surprised if there was a 2nd gig, they will struggle to sell out at those prices.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,932 ✭✭✭✭scudzilla


    jaysus, just did a youtube search of collins recent performances, came across this one from Hyde Park.
    What a depressing sight, zero passion, not even a smile, just an old man sat there singing a song.

    I’ve been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that I didn’t really understand any of their work, all the albums before Duke seemed too artsy, too intellectual . It was Duke where Phil Collins’ presence became more apparent, and the music got more modern, the drum machine became more prevalent and the lyrics started getting less mystical and more specific.

    Invisible Touch is the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic meditation on intangibility, at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. It has a resonance that keeps coming back at the listener. All in all it ranks with the finest rock ‘n’ roll achievements of the decade and the mastermind behind this album, along of course with the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford, is Hugh Padgham, who has never found as clear and crisp and modern a sound as this. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.
