Hi all

Was just wondering if someone could do me a massive favour? 😊

I'm looking to get 2 tickets for the newport gig, I'm not registered with the website as I rarely use the Internet

Does anyone have a code that I could use to purchase tickets that they aren't going to use ? 😊

Would be hugely grateful and would offer a donation for this 😊

Cheers all

Dan

Waited 9 years to see them in Wales. Thought it would never happen

 

Who's going?

 

They played Cardiff in 2010. I wasn't a fan then, though. I'm upstairs. The receipt has seat numbers on it but it says 'unreserved.' What's that about?

 

Do you think if we hang around the stage door afterwards we might get to meet them?:eek:

Well, I screwed this up horrendously. Went to buy tickets but it wouldn't let me use a new card, so I used an old credit card... but that was already registered with Ticketmaster, so it wouldn't let me enter the details again. And if I attempted to start the process from scratch, they were probably going to be gone by the time I got there.

 

So my mum purchased the tickets for me... only for me to discover the strict non-negotiable rule about needing to present the card that was used (not a problem) AND the photo ID relating to that card (rather more of a problem, assuming they check the face). So I've given them the full explanation, including the details of the card used, and my one that I tried to use. A response can take up to 3 days, but I suspect they're going to be inflexible. I've given them incontrovertible evidence that this isn't a touting thing but suspect it's a case of "no exceptions" so that they don't spend days answering loads of "yeah, but" queries. Which will mean a refund, and two new tickets for someone out there. Ah well.

Tonight was all about fate for me, by chance/luck I briefly checked the site for a update on single, just gone 6:00 this evening, to be greeted with the live announcement. Heart racing, I frantically tried for about a hour to get through, eventually securing my tickets for Newport!! Excited is a understatement at the moment, i'm so wound up I can't sleep and I got work at 6:00 in the morning :/

 

Also great to see them come back to Wales again! last time was for their Blackholes tour.

Damo, I panicked when someone said that, because all the tickets are 'general admission,' that must mean there is no seating. I've never been to the Newport Centre but I saw a photo of the auditorium online last night and it looked as if the 'tiers' are fixed. I could be wrong. My ticket says 'Upper Tier - Unreserved Seating.' I can't imagine anyone would be allowed to stand up there but I'm phoning the centre anyway. It opens at 7.15 am and I've been up since 5am. I need to be able to sit down and I really don't want a wheelchair space because there wouldn't be as much choice about where I sat.:(

 

I thought they played the Millenium Stadium in 2010 but I must have got that wrong. I don't feel quite so bad about not having seen them if last time they were in Cardiff was 2006. I had never heard of them back then.

IIRC, the Newport Centre is mainly standing but has a bank of seats at the back - you just grab one of those. I think it's the same system as the CIA in Cardiff.

 

The Newport Centre is a great little venue, I saw Dream Theater there back in 2007 :happy:.

All standing tickets have numbers against them, don't worry :)

You can double-check by logging into your ticketmaster account > My tickets > Order Details > Print Receipt.

 

It should say unreserved standing there.

There is a number. It says Row GA2 Seats 217-218 Upper Tier-Unreserved Seating. I've just spoken to someone at the contact centre who said the venue hasn't sent them any details about the seating plan yet.:mad: I can't contact the venue directly but she's passed a message to them and asked them to call me back. So I wait..........:(

Yeah, presale tickets went fairly quickly last night!

 

I haven't seen them in Wales since the Absolution tour (2003?) because I couldn't make the BHAR show.

 

Seen them plenty of times at Festivals/London/Birmingham since though but yeah... WELSH SHOW! :D

it looks like the presale is all gone for this one, i'm waiting on the general sale, would there be standing tickets left for the general sale?
