How crackers would I be to be at the front on the barriers? Cannot say I am a big fan or seen that much on them, but it will be a memorable experience I will guess. I like to just go to the odd random gig and experience it all.

Yeah - I was even up there this morning at 9 in case it was a typo. It does seem rather odd... the only thing I can imagine it might have going for it is that it might be less contested than the general sale, but since I can't imagine it selling out in record time... who cares?

Not a presale as such, but priority tickets. Since they're often not that great I'd probably just risk the general sale rather than go with O2.
You are correct as I saw when I went to buy some this morning but it def said weds 6th at 9am yesterday lunchtime.

Obviously 02 were going to do their normal 48 hrs advance booking for a certain number of tickets for 02 Blueroom members until Rammstein saw it and told them not to sell any before the official on sale of Fri at 9am

Being near or at the front will be pretty awesome, you'll certainly feel the heat of the flame throwers etc - would be a great place to be for a first Rammstein concert!

You can feel the heat from half way back in the Apollo in Manchester. I wouldn't want to be down the front.

I get down the front and it's an awesome experience. Got squirted straight in the face with the foam from Till's gun he rode during pussy last time. The heat coming of the pyrotechnics is incredible. I'll be down there again this time round.

We were 3/4 of the way back at that gig and could still feel it.

I missed the last tour because of my hospitilisation so will be going to the London gig this time. The view and heat from the disabled area should be fun

Unless seating is an absolute must you won't have trouble getting tickets it seems

Ahhh I do wonder how much of these venues they will fill, our arena in Newcastle I cannit see getting packed out, but hope it does. Still in a way who cares as long as you get a place, cannot wait to go and see the show. It reminds me of when Rob Zombie came to UK a few months back, not a massive fan, but hard to say no for the spectacle alone. Mind you he was not spewing fire all over the place.

Well I got tix for Birmingham yesterday morning and all I could find from regular agents were seats up the side towards the back - nothing standing. Object on principle to buying from places like "Getmein(at absurd cost).com". Happy enough though, never seen them live and only really liked the Mutter and Sehnsucht albums.

Last time they played the arena a third of it was closed off from the back.Be warned that if yuo go to the front,when i saw them the whole of the front section where absolutely drenched,looked like they had just thrown themselves in a bath. I am in the seats again as i am old and boring.

More fool you as they've been around for a while and I've bought numerous tickets from them including current orders for The Joy Formidable, The Horrors and Rammstein.
I assume ticketline are also too obscure and they do most of the Manchester based events (note general admission is standing as there is no seat allocation)
Shouldn't have to google ticket agencies as you should be subscribed to their mailing lists as the best source of info on up and coming gigs as venues are less reticent than the bands own websites when it comes to announcing gigs so you have a greater chance of getting tickets before they sell out.
