firstly, are they legit?
I'm wondering why I didn't buy four.
who got AF tickets before NY is suffering from brain malfunction
touch me <3
Easy there mate: don't what you having an aneurysm before the NY gig
can i hang out with you lot?
i assume you are all going together yeah?
should be a fun if unexpected evening if they are honoured
and also stand next to you while you drink it
SWIMMING IN TICKETS
I'll be the one drinking heavily outside the gates until 5 minutes before they're on PLEASE JOIN ME
just worked for me! got a single ticket for 2.50
why are we still able to buy tickets? Surely any company, in light of any error, would honour the tickets (great marketing etc) but would firstly stop the error?? it's been going on for hours now.
it's not actually an error?
with people buying overpriced beer and food, then half-empty...maybe.
also realised that as soon as I didn't think I was conning anyone I didn't give a shit about seeing AF
(fancied the NY one but that sold out)
at the front of the Roadie Knob-Gobbling queue
My fam was going through a hard time
£2.50 back. I'm not made of money ffs.
someone bought a load of black sabbath tickets and put them on ebay
Take them down immediately or marilyninthesky will fuck you up. badly & gladly.
surely loads of people will try to flip, and the value will just collapse?
imagine the black market has been SWAMPED today. Except for tom jones.
i told her that wsan't on and she just smiled at me and went 'why not'.
I wish other people hadn't have put the link all over their Facebook too. But ah well.
share it to everyone. let everyone have a chance to get stupid over priced tickets for cheap.
people buying them to sell them on though. fuckign hell, there is nothing on this earth that gets me more wound up
you want to share it with people you know etc, so they can get in on the fun. And i guess if this was a marketing gimmick it's what they were hoping for.
just dissappointed tbh
i'm life banned from paypal, i may as well be life banned from ebay as well
People mentioned this yesterday in another thread
What did you do?
1) shill bidding (a temporary ban and I did it several times, for shame)
2) (this was years ago) boyfriend is banned from PayPal because we sold something on eBay to some dude abroad, he claimed we never sent it (obvs we did) but he didn't pay for insured shipping or whatever so we had no proof we'd sent it, he complained to PayPal who refunded him using the money in my boyfriend's PayPal. Except, this didn't cover it, so they said HELLO YOU NEED TO GIVE US SOME MONEY OTHERWISE YR BANNED so we just never even logged back into his account...
but it sounds bad.
by using mates/false accounts to bid on your items
I'm prepared to do it again.
Shill bidding is worse than touting
only 100 hrs later than the event -
i have to do soem work now, soemone give me a call or something when we find out if w are actually getting any tickets at all
pretty please with my haul, not fussed about arcade fire but as I'm off work may as well. Quite excited about soundgaden, was gonna see them in '96 but my friends wanted to see nofx instead always kicked myself for not going anyway, saw chris cornell live once and he played seasons and fell on black days and it was spine tingly, only seem to get that for bands of that era. Also Neil Young, really like but would never go to a proper gig of his so glad this happened as he is just someone I would never see otherwise, feels like a real bonus
ain't so indie now, it's gone MAINSTREAM! I felt like I was part of a small part of indie society - now I'm just another cheap skating Black Sabbath loving' mother licker!
mits you come out with the best things sometimes
I paid £2.50 to see neil young before it was cool
buy you a drink at 5pm.
they run the events.
they should run lots more events imo
TEAM ROOOOOOOOOOOCCCCKKKK (BIG DEATH METAL GROWL)
your first post totally raised my hopes
The latest dogs about town this week - oof
she is ace and goes to union chapel for the daylight music gigs (hollie-dog, but the same goes for elle too). do you want to borrow her?
how do i contact her????
if you want we can meet her and her dog before Neil Young.
I'd stay clear
but if I could ^ anything, it would be you.
Someone asked me if i was on drugs in work earlier. i said no.
Ah fucking hell, you might've done me today mits.
what a star!
i'll deffo be buying him a nice well deserved beer at these shows
Men want to...well, be with him
Any updates over the weekend anyone?
i know, i know, take it to the music board...but no-one ever goes on there!
...would it be considered polite to kick off the plasticniki witchhunt?
...and the shows are this week. They might as well get £2.50 for whatever is left! Better than £0.00.
i got two NY ones. Bought two more later so expecting them to come through...later.
one order to come
Not sure there'll ever be that much spontaneous excitement at work EVER again.
who'd paid £2.50 to see him.
Don't fret, you'll get 'em soon.
One email for each separate ticket.
Might be best to make a thread in the day.
Meet meet meet!
with service this bad anyone would think i'd paid a paltry amount of money for some tickets
I bought 2 set of 2 tickets to Sabbath on 2 different orders. I'm slightly nervous they'll only let me have one pair. slightly
...is what I would be saying if I was in the same position as you. But I've received all of the tickets I ordered. So I'm not.
I imagine it's quite stressful to not have received them yet.
and I ordered them around 10am that morning. Don't fret people.
Funny because I ordered them at about midnight on Saturday so I must've been one of the last people to order. And my surname begins with a Z too.
just received my arcade fire tickets! 2 Neil Young ones to come!
bit late tho really - i have already got myself signed off work with stress
Thanks Japes - ur teh best!
Will probably get too drunk to be allowed in waiting for Jake Bugg to finish OH WELL WE WILL SEE
for £2.50? I'll take that.
Tickets for Thursday/Friday arrived.
SO EXCITED, esp about the Friday.
Well enjoy Jake Bugg everyone.
Yes Arcade Fire & Wild Beasts!
Owen Pallett is playing a tiny stage at 6pm. Somewhat changes things for me:
as ive said elsewhere, i literally bought the tickets just to see owen pallett, but couldnt find his name anywhere so assumed i was imagining it!!!
You mind reader, you.
I'm going to have to skive work for this. And pray the pints aren't gonna be £5+. They're gonna be £5+ aren't they? Might just leave after AF.
It's too early for me.
proper guff, and looking at their recent setlists they're mainly playing it. i'll probably sod off a few songs in if they dont grab me.
mainly up for seeing them to make up for missing them headlining reading cos i needed to take someone home, and people talk up that show
Yeah I saw that Reading show on iPlayer and it looked fantastic. Fucking REFLEKTOR *shakes fist*
except for the people who were sat on a chair in the dark on the edge of the crowd who I flattened as I danced into them.
im on something of a health kick so just wont drink. will probably drink at sabbath cos sabbath.
and you;'re going to leave after the headliners? i think most people will do that?
aaaaaaaaaaand owen pallet has been supporting AF everywhere. he might even be back in the band? probably not actually
i can happily just watch him for a whole set. assumed i would have heard if he was actually on stage with them, but guess not!
does anyone want two Neil Young tickets?
I can't go :(
as i don't to go alone.
mits asked first, soz
I was being greedy.Honestly - Japes give them to him. I've got two days of bands.
GOOD NEWS EVERYONE
i sit shit?
i haven't listened to anything by AF since funeral
also - drinks prices - are we thinking about £4.50?
listened to reflektor on the way to work yesterday...one or two moments but didn't do much for me...should still be an enjoyable evening for 2.50 with a big bunch of buddies
what happened to them?
i'm willing to spend a bit more on booze inside the place after only spending £2.50 to see a bunch of bands.
They've got you good and PROPER.
so much. cold beer and live music are two things I couldn't live without.
I love beer.
cherryx hasn't had her AF tickets yet.
PM me. You don't have to come with msmonipenni and I but we may allow it if you are not super weird.
