seetickets or the venue direct?
the round house asks for more details i.e username and password etc
i need to get 3
might speed you up a bit once it gets going
anyone else having breakfast now?
the demand for those tickets blows MBV out of the way!
I am the worst person ever at buying selling out quickly tickets.
The Arcade Fire made me cry. I don't think I could face that again.
and play some festivals
heightened emotions and all that
I say, PAH!
what they really should have done, is a reunion tour where they re-create that Dinosaur Jr, Blur, MBV and JAMC gig at Brixton Academy. Though I'd literally come then.
Takes you straight through to the page.
Called the roundhouse and they are doing three nights Fri/Sat/Sun they just haven't gone online at Seetickets yet so fret not - three shows will be available
Im going to regret paying £22.50+fee when theyre undoubtedly shit, as 90% of reformed bands are.
It says "busy".
gace me a bemused look when i strolled in at 8:40
"oh, you're on time today!"
Through Ticketline :o)
Why didn't I think of that? Oh well, I've got them now.
i got here too late
take that tickets went on sale today
so millions of morons are also trying to get on there
smashing pumpkins and joe satriani as well!
checkout page fukkers !
woop! woop! surprisingly straightforward for once...
is 0115 945 4591
i heart you
sold out at the final stage. damn it.
I just went to www.ticket-scotland.com
No wait, whatsoever. Easy peasy.
Phew. Now my friends better get one or i'll be going alone again.
totally sold out
just spoke to someone on phone
is if it didnt even sell out
...tickets have now sold out.
i ordered, it processed then it said sold out
they'll announce more though, right?
I even came in to work early and everything.
and saturday too
dont panic mr mannering
or saturday and sunday?
thursday would be the first gig, and therefore a bit specialer like
was on the roundhouse site yesterday (disappeared now!) and they told someone that on the phone this morning
Opera and awesome your auto-complete personal information function, i thank you.
£80.55 for three tickets though
at seetickets said £32.50 for one ticket!
between me leaving and going to work
for fees. Even more so than Ticketmaster and they're bad enough. Use ticketweb or stargreen where you can or the venue direct. Obviously not an option with gigs like this only available through See that'll sell out in 2 seconds flat.
sorry to hear some people didnt get tickets
capacity about 1000, maybe?
i'm crap with judging numbers
than that - 3000 or so standing.
I would guess.
Didn get tickets either, but would prefer the saturday show anyway and they are sure to be at ATP too so will see them there.
that will explain it then. Barrowlands is much bigger. It says my ticket number is one hundred-and-something
less than 5 minutes sold out?
You see, I went through this when I was trying to get tickets to Sleater-Kinney's final shows. Scalpers have software that enables them to bypass site security and buy as many tickets as they want. A large portion of the "sold out" Sleater-Kinney tickets appeared on Ebay in the month or two leading up to the concerts. I only got tickets at a normal price because of a couple of really nice people who, through some unknown means, had managed to purchase an impressive number of tickets. Just wait...you'll see those "sold out" MBV tickets soon enough on Ebay...
3 pairs for London and 1 pair for Manchester. And stupid idiots are bidding on them! £106 for a pair of tickets and rising.
and it sold out while it was being processed. fucks sake.
You have booked to attend MY BLOODY VALENTINE at Roundhouse, London on FRIDAY 20/06/2008 at 19.30
same for me.
we'll get em for the thursday and then us be laughing
that this process will go through
so long as i'm near a pc when they announce them
me. hope this is not a con!?!
there're massive gaps between the dates they've announced though.
hopefully they'll announce more shows soon.
stupid fat fingers.
I think the glasgow date is on the day of my school prom.
about time, now for the bad news.....
omg! ticketline still had them! yay! :D
Then it sold out after entering card details.
They're all penises and I hate them.
Didn't get tickets and i got up early and everything... what am i to do :(
Sold out fucking quick didn't they!
Aggh...it sold out when processing for me too.
But then I got a confirmation to say I'd booked 4 tickets!!! I'd only ordered one....
But then I read the email and it wasn't meant for me!!! It was addressed to somebody else! methinks Seetickets had a few problems....
I just got a confirmation email saying I booked a ticket for Manchester?
No I didn't?
Dear MR MCCARTNEY,
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
You have booked to attend MY BLOODY VALENTINE at Apollo, Manchester on SATURDAY 28/06/2008 at 19.30
You have ordered the following tickets
Reference 17547910 - 4 STANDING at £ 25.25 Plus a Transaction fee of £ 4.80
Mr what now?
"Dear MR SUMMERS" let me know, yeah? My email's not come through yet!
we shared a surname. how nice.
As in... Paul?
..if they send me 4 tickets and only charge me for one then thats not a problem. You guys can have the other 3!
and i didn't book any at all - tried for 2 in Londo and I'm not Mr McCartney. Great, now my credit card will be charged over £100 an it will take an age to get it back.
I kind of feel sorry for this Mr McCartney, now everyone has his ticket confirmation number.
Twice. Useless fuckers.
...nor did I attempt to book tickets for Manchester. Ballsack..
Just noticed it said Manchester too...and I booked for London.
Damnit, who knows if we were successful in getting tickets. Guess we'll find out later.
have Mr McCartney's confirmation.
One for Paul, one for STELLLLAAAAA, one for Heather (possible reconciliation gift?), and one for Linda (like pouring a splash of whiskey to the ground with every pull you take from the bottle: respecting the dead and shit).
got the same email to Mr McCartney, but for manchester tickets - tout?
I'll see you in manchester...
It may not be sold out a all.Plus I bet they still take the money from those of us who had it sell out while it was processing and then they'll 'srt it out' later.
They've boked for the wrong date in the wrong city for me in the past too
why oh why could this not be through we got tickets...
would get into the venue on time ;-)
seriously though ticketweb is far better, cheaper fees and doesnt seem to crash as much when promoters use it
got mine for manc from see online. until the money comes out im not counting on having them! i worked there and know how shit it is!
but the date on was different to the one confirmed.
Now they've changed it to the correct date on their site but it looks like it's all sold out.
I hope my booking still stands, I'm not going to be very pleased if it doesn't!
up in advance without knowing whether they have tickets or not, so they can catch people angry at not getting them on the phone.
cant even get past the "buy tickets" page
...but then I had 3 tickets in my basket
And then I tried to delete two.
And then I had none...
it is on tickets-scotland
but it sold out before i even got on the site, so i went for manchester, a long way to go, but i reckon it'll be worth it.
Fucking yes, 2 tickets for the apollo. I got them through ticketline if anyone's struggling for Manchester tickets.
from despair to joy in the space of about three minutes.
ticketline's broke now though.
15 minutes have passed and your ticket purchase was not complete. Your tickets have therefore been released. If you still wish to purchase them please add them to your basket once again and take care to complete your purchase by Checking out within 15 minutes.
i was waiting for 15mins for things to load up cocksckers
So...what to do for the next 7 months and 12 days until the gig?
thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.
I love ticketline
Got into work early and everything.
Oh well, i'd wager The Roundhouse will have extra dates like they did with Sonic Youth.
That's why there is a weeks gap between the gigs. Yesterday the roundousesaid they were booked for Friday/Saturdayyy and Sunda so more will go onsale
the thursday and saturday.
would make it friday to sunday
sorry no it is the friday and sunday.
i thought the friday date was going on sale today and it was the two days around it that were the extras, but turns out today was for the saturday.
Scum. Sub-human scum.
for that?? want they release a few more on returns or whatever. or even on the day itd be cheaper to get it from the touts outside?
got mine this minute off ticketmaster :D. seetickets was shit even when i got through and ordered it then gave a error at the final page...'please contact venue problem with order'
and I hate Manchester and places that aren't London.
inaccessible for some people due to capacity. actually the phone wasnt inaccessible at all, i got through after 2 rings but was too late.
the demand is very high. there were no doubt touts buying tickets, but your idea of a big tout conspiracy is a bit silly.
at 9:04 but it was already sold out
i booked mine right now! (9:29) and got standing tix :)
See throughout the day as they tend to stagger releases (and re-release fked up orders) -
If they go back on sale, use this thread!
well heres waiting for the new dates eh!
there are tickets on ticketmaster
but i dont know anyone in manchester. and i live in bristol so its quite far away. i feel like a bad fan now :(
smug. carry on
most ineffectual booking site ever?
just got two standing for london on roundhouse.org.uk. don't give up, the website's just shit.
just sloooooooooooooooow going...
got 'em, mind - that's all that matters, s'pose...
Standing tickets for the London show at the roundhouse website !! 9.49 :D:D
..would be a fine idea to combat the blues
Man, been trying since 9am on the dot on that shity See Tickets site and it did fuck all, however after ringing up Barrowlands, they recommend my to Tickets Scotland.com, wherer i bought 2 tickets instantly! :)
and they'll have some in the box office, i've sent claire round to pick some up this morning :)
might have to send my sister out
they'll announce soon enough.
looks like a chance to make a weekend of it!
(Though if more london dates appear, i'll get some for that and see em twice or sell these, plannage.)
Just got ones from the Roundhouse website
that when I get to the final screen it says Ive gone over the 15minutes and theyve been reallocated
Im oddly not fussed anyway, as I assume I will see them at some point
think I'm gonna have to give up and do some work
Just got 4 from Roundhouse (right)
Thankyou very very very much kid_A!
I let out a little scream of delight in history when I got the text....
I've just bought mine. I cannot believe it I hope it's good. I KNOW IT WILL BE GOOD!!!!!!
Fuck see tickets byt the way. : )
I'm not giving up!
The website was too slow so my tickets got re-released, AFTER I put my details in. Bastards!
amusingly they are still there. try again.
Managed to get some at 10.15! Nice.
Damn you critical thinking tutorial!
Why'd I even go to that anyway? Did I seriously think there would be tickets left afterwards and I could do both?
So tedious too. Urgh.
woman on the phone said they were the last 2
put those bad boys onto e-bay then.
The geek pound sometimes is better than the pink pound in terms of cynical marketing.
ring 0870 389 1846 NOW
so you'd post it on interweb messageboard so people would stop phoning her up and ruining her day. There's probably thousands of tickets left.
I got through on th 5th attempt
Everyone seems to be in manchester or london...
just attempted to add some london tickets to the basket and they didn't appear... i'll wait for extra dates to see em in London.
Plus I've never been to the Apollo- anyone know if it's any good?
I literally just got some now having been trying since 8:58 and at one point thinking I'd paid when I'd only given them a donation.
I've never been happier to have £50 taken from :):)
it seems to be working v slowly for me too
although i think i'm accidentally buying two tickets :S
sods law it'll time out in a second..
taking about 3 mins to load a page
well, standing ones have.
I got as far as checkout before my transaction timed out. So pissed.
just got through after being on hold for 25 mins and got 4
i actually fucking got one.
OH MY GOD.
just got tickets of the roundhouse site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got into work at 8 fucking 30 and couldn't get a SINGLE TICKET. The guy I sit next to bowls in at 10, and buys 8 on two credit cards. And I was the one who told everyone about it.
He got me one though so all good.
when booking the tickets.
just got roundhouse tickets :) :)
i appear to have just got tickets on the roundhouse website
from the roundhouse site
not sure if I'm having any luck or not yet... :S
best friday ever?
best day ever?
pumpkins tickets up next, my card has been raped
will i be seeing you later? I need to speak to Jo actually re: future Evenings booking!
i shall be enjoying my leaving drinks at work. enjoy though
IT SHOULD BE DELETED.
get on there now, its moving fairly fast.
"Sorry, this performance has now sold out."
For any MBV obsessed housemate that's lying around.
but on the Saturday
seetickets sold out in 4mins for the Roundhouse show and as for that Roundhouse website!! Jesus. Kept throwing me out when trying to fill my basket, when I gotto the basket it was mysteriously empty, tried filling it again then got told it was sold out. Then you look at ebay and see tossbags selling them for over £100 each. W#nkers that deserve to die, horribly, and alone.....with no dinner beforehand.
I did this too.
it was my mum.
she did seem genuinely happy for me thoguh
Frown well and truly turned upside down.
Just managed to get one for the Roundhouse via their website.
it's seated however as the standing ones have sold out. I did have a standing one in my basket earlier but it got reallocated due to the amount of time the site was taking..
Oh well, seated is better then nothing!
let them go in and then 1 of them comes out again and gives you the other persons ticket, so you can all get in. It worked when I went to Sonic Youth
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
You have booked to attend BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE at Apollo, Manchester on SATURDAY 28/06/2008 at 19.30
Reference 175478710 - 4 STANDING at £ 25.25 Plus a Transaction fee of £ 4.80
Hahaha - LMAO!!!
I don't - they're idiots. Just wait and they'll add more dates.
but at the same time, they are just being stupid and lazy. oh, so i dont.
keep trying, it will be worth it
the sort buttons don't show up on IE6
i had a meeting and missed them
being on the roundhouse site
they're all sold out on there now.
no they're not! keep refreshing!
i got one ticket standing :D
compared to £32 on seetickets! HAHA!
i just bought two main standin london tickets. If you keep refreshing tickets become available.
tis very silly.
whoop whoop this is gonna be a partay.
MBV tickets and front row Eels seats in the same week :D
from when it times outta someone's basket... jus keep yer finger onna ol' refresheroo...
that wangy wangy guitar thing.
anyway, what else do we (i) have to get excited about?
BUT HE'S NOT TOURING!!!
and squint a bit and wear doc martins and a Paw tshirt and go back to my centre parting. it'll be like the real thing.
it's getting embarassing.
i'm not really sure you can say this, as they haven't done ANYTHING since 1991.
True, but bands really worth seeing these days are few and far between. Hence me getting my knickers in a twist.
Your tickets have therefore been released. If you still wish to purchase them please add them to your basket once again and take care to complete your purchase by Checking out within 15 minutes.
...twice! They really need to extend the time the tickets are in your basket, at least during peak sales times.
sorry, but have to ask
but probably true.
sounds like seetickets got hacked - Loads of people got the McCartney confirmation. Just called up to check it didn't come from my account and they explained they had a major hacking situation. Think of how many account details are on that site.
I sped through in about 2 minutes >:(
The tickets for My Bloody Valentine 20th June 2008 sold out within
minutes of going on sale.
Two further London dates are now on sale for London Roundhouse
Sat 21st June 2008
Sun 22nd June 2008
and not even in Mr McCartneys name this time.
if you've already got them for the friday, or is that just massively selfish?
nothing stopping you if you can afford it
beat the scummy touts!

is walking to the roundhouse right now. phone him and he might get you one.
tickets for manchester still available outside seetickets..
two tickets for saturday 21st June..
The Friday June 20 show sold out lightning fast this morning, so we are pleased to announce that additional shows on Saturday June 21 and Sunday June 22 have now been added.
Tickets will be available shortly at www.seetickets.com, www.wegottickets.com, www.gigantic.com and www.roundhouse.org.uk
Just got some in for the 21st!! I can now lay back with a lazy one whilst Loveless spins round.....and relaaaax.
some more tickets available for 2nd on see now
just was refreshing for the pumpkins tickets and the two new dates for MBV popped up, wow! 2 for saturday :)
including Friday still
for living opposite the Roundhouse and having the day off :)
There were only about 10 people there this morning. AND some turned out to be buying tickets for Shakespeare, not MBV!
feel cheated now they've just announced 2 extra london dates after going through 2 hours of torture?
was obvious wasnt it?
They were always going to announce more deates, especially given the massive gaps in time between that and the Manchester gig
fanboy dreams do come true
about the extra dates since last night, not really.
I didn't. whooops.
when they get added to the EITS ATP bill?
I just got a Friday ticket on the Roundhouse website. There are still some there (or they've been released from aborted orders).
just bought tickets for Friday.
on sale now!!!
see tickets is f**ked - wouldn't let me buy either, but now have 2 and can relax.
it's sold out.
I'm going on Sunday!
and I nearly smashed my computer in annoyance. Then it suddenly magically worked (I think the tickets just got released) and I am going on Sunday.
MBV are now no longer completely england-centric
It's quite odd. Probably about 1/10 people on here is scottish, so MBV have been misrepresented in this thread. Does that mean scottish people like MBV less ?
no, just salads and bathing
What are they going for?
Can't see eBay at work :(
the rest is early bidding
just bought a Friday pair for 212.49
Fook me, I just managed to get a standing ticket for the Friday! must be someone elses reject.
Will need to sell the seated one I bought earlier now....
tkts for Roundhouse Saturday - alright!
so did I!
what was probably the last available saturday ticket of the roundhouse website cos i had a look straight after my order came through and it was sold out.
However, i cant really afford this right now. And i dont really know anybody that is going so far. Plus i dont live in london. :(
But its MBV so who cares!
that i have a ticket for manchesters show and i put very little effort into it. I just have a wonderfull boyfriend who got all stressed out for me.
but yay this is going to be AMAZING
for a total of £26. Which is £6 less than Seecunts
I just got one
touts have ruined a lot of people's chance to go without having to pay an inflated price. look how many are on ebay already for more than double face value
can't they do what they do with football tickets and prohibit resale?
i am ANNOYED
just false advertising
Sorry, there has been a problem authorising your card. Your payment has not gone through. Please check your details and try again.
for Manchester on the 28th and 1 for London on the 21st.
can i buy one?
none of my friends who said they want to go have them.
Just send me a PM
jesus...who will you offload them to?!
i just got some for London on the Sat. In addition the ones I got for Manchester. Hmmm.
Im listening to 'Loomer' now
So who on here saw them first time round? I had the pleasure of seeing them 3 times back in the early 90's around Loveless era. Town & Country, Cambridge Corn Exchange (with Mercury Rev supporting) and the Rollercoaster tour at Brixton. Feel quite priviliged to be able to do it all again.
it was amazing 10/10
I used to go and see them as a kind of substitute for Jesus & Mary Chain, who I loved but hardly ever played. First time I saw MBV I think was at the Head Club, supporting the Primitives, which was some little bar down the side of the Astoria run by Wayne who ran Lazy records. This was about the time of New Record By, around 86. They played in London about every two weeks. Them were the days.
But now I wouldn't cross the street to see JAMC! Funny old world.
hee ehee heee eheee
what does 104 votes mean?
not offtracking this thread MBV will be great on the friday
so i don't know if this has already been mentioned, but you can still get tickets for sunday off the roundhouse website...
being at the roundhouse last night it reminded me to check this...
Now to dcide whether to go to this or go to Crowded House at Westonbirt Arboretum. You heard.
here. came about a week ago
a few tickets left for the second manc and glasgow dates, see:
