Anybody got standing tickets for sale? I assume not, but it's worth a try! If I have to sit it may be the death of me, haha!

Anyone who has a spare standing ticket they want to sell for face value.. let me know please :LOL:

 

Me too :LOL:

 

Really pissed that there are no standing tickets. It's ridiculous. Silly as it sounds, I refuse to sit *snob. I'm on the phone to them now to find out why there are no standing general sale tickets. Bastards!

I tried, but there's no option to speak to an advisor :rolleyes:. I'll try on a different number later, cos this one seems to be dedicated to automated ticket-buying only. Gahh, I'm tempted to get seated ticket just to know that I'm going but I simply cannot sit at a Muse gig. I would really rather not go :LOL::facepalm:. The whole point of the experience for me is going wild among the crowd to their songs and jumping around like a loon.

 

I don't understand why Ticketmaster even has a 'standing' option for Manchester when there aren't any tickets at all. What's that all about?! I'll get over it eventually, but for now until the concert I'm going to be hunting everyday for the golden (standing) ticket! :p

rear view was on the twitter bingo for the last arena tour, people complaining until the show started and then going 'whoa that's awesome!' so yeah, it's not quite as good but you'll be really close, I'd go for there before going for back of arena.

I 'got' standing from Ticketmaster, but for some reason my card couldn't be verified.

If anyone wants to swap two central lower tier seated tickets for Manchester for two standing (both same face value as they are the most expensive seats) let me know by emailing a-beebuzz@hotmail.com

 

Would be good for people who applied in the pre-sale and would have prefered seated.

This is their last date until the 12th so they could feasibly add another date and easily sell out. Wouldn't be happy if they played a better set though seeing as that would be the new last night in the UK.

 

That set's ours dammit! :fear:

Really? You're the only person so far that I've seen who's actually had an ounce of luck with standing anywhere in general sale :LOL:

Were ALL the standing tickets put on that application process or a presale? I went on to Ticketmaster bang on 10am and there was none left! Just seating.

And for the record, whilst I dicked about looking around other sites just to check, most of the seated tickets sold out too. There's only upper tier left and at the MEN those seats absolutely suck. You can barely even see.

 

I can't afford the extortionate prices people are already charging on Seatwave and eBay. Unless there's another date announced or they release more tickets, it doesn't look like I'll be going. :-(

 

Oh great - thanks for that - I managed to get seated tickets but block 209 so I hope they are OK. Was looking forward to it till I read your comment! Can anyone reassure me about the upper tier seats??

I am not happy at all about the lack of standing, as others have also said before me, I refuse to sit. I just dont think the seats are worth the price you pay, if they were a lot cheaper than standing then I might consider, but even upper tier seats are £55. Guess I'm also hoping for another date / an extra ticket release.

Another date is possible but there is Wrestling in the arena on Nov 3rd so it depends how long it takes to set up.

 

There are still tickets available on See Tickets and Ticketmaster so I cannot see them adding another date.

Haha, sorry! If it makes you feel any better part of the reason I say those seats are so bad is because my eyes are bad so I physically cannot see from that distance! Also they'll have big screens on either side of the stage probably so you'll be able to see them! I personally just hate the upper tier :p

 

Thanks for your reply :) - feel better now, but will take binoculars!!!
