What he said.

In a year when we've already lost David Bowie, Lemmy and Glenn Frey, the window is closing on a lot of these bands.

I was down the front in the pit that night and it was simply stunning - even grabbed a handful of his back and arse as he crowd surfed on top of us.

Much as I'd rather he did a 'normal' show I am very tempted to go this time around too.

Between Springsteen and Coldplay, it'll be lovely to see the Ethiad full for two weeks running.

£137 for seats at Coventry in the same block I paid about £50 two years ago? Bloody hell.

Still, it was the best concert I've ever been to so couldn't resist. Titsed off that there were tickets already on Stubhub in the same block I'm in for £499 each before I even managed to buy mine though!

London - standing tickets sorted (9am)

The pit thing is based on arriving early and queuing - how early please?

Still some seats left for Wembley at ticketmaster - although can't work out how the seat number you are given relates the the seating chart at all!

Been a long time since I posted here. Got a ticket for Manchester this morning.
Standing - but it also says "level 1 unreserved seating".

Does anybody know what that means?
Been only to the Etihad once, but it had a different seating plan then.

Thanks

It normally means that people who have bought a standing ticket can go and sit in the bottom tier if they want. There's no seat allocation, so you can sit anywhere down there if you've had enough of standing.

According to the map on Viagogo, the lower tier is included with standing (for Manchester, but not Coventry and Wembley):-

Thanks, that map makes it clearer. Probably means that one has to turn up pretty early to get a reasonably good seat.

Manchester sorted, looking forward to seeing a genuine legend for the first time. Got into Springsteen when I got his live 75-85 Box Set when i was around 14.
