Thank you so much for this. I've just got two tickets for the Cardiff show and I'm speechless! I was just browsing and had no idea that there were tickets available. Can't believe I'm going to see him again - and good seats. Thanks again. C

Jarkko, is this true? http://www.musicweek.com/story.asp?sect ... 034917&c=1

Seatwave named as ticket exchange for Cohen tour
15:54 | Tuesday July 22, 2008

By Ben Cardew

Seatwave has been appointed as the official ticket exchange for Leonard Cohen’s UK tour in the autumn.

The deal means that fans will have the opportunity to buy and sell tickets for Cohen’s tour on Seatwave.com, and will benefit from the consumer protection it offers.

The announcement follows Seatwave’s deal to become the official ticket exchange for Grand Union Mnagement.

Seatwave founder Joe Cohen says, “Seatwave was founded on the notion that the way fans have traditionally got tickets is broken and our mission is to provide them with 100% piece of mind and the lowest prices in the secondary market.

“Our recent partnerships demonstrate that the leaders of the live event and sport industries agree with our premise and believe that Seatwave is fans’ best opportunity for a great experience.”

I second that thanks from Cliona to Jarkko, AEG and LC's team - I also got good seats for the Cardiff show

Thank you for this service. It's great to get 2 seats for the middle front stalls section at the O2 - on the web, all such tickets are part of a corporate hospitality package for £335
2008: Manchester x 2, Glastonbury, O2 x 2, Big Chill, RAH, Brighton. 2009: Weybridge

thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes
i thought it was there for good so i never tried

Me neither, Steve. When I just tested the Seetickets booking for Brighton without logging in through the special password system linked from here it says the gig is sold out, so maybe they are planning on shoehorning us onto the stage or into the orchestra pit or thereabouts :D . Ah well, time will tell.

A gesture that came a bit too late for those of us who already booked when tickets went on sale :roll:

Yeah, came too late for me too. But it don't hurt to acknowledge that it's a nice thing to do ... Could the promoters and managers do more? Of course. Could they do better? You bet. Could we for once stop moaning and say thanks. Seems to me we could. :?

"The only thing that puzzles me is that other posters are commenting on the position of their seat, but there was no indication of seat position or number in my booking process nor in the confirmation email. Did other people get this information, particularly for Brighton?"

For the O2 tickets it specified block (A2, in the middle of the floor), row (W) and seat. I'm guessing they were all around this area as I refreshed a few times and got allocated different seats in row W. Not sure about Brighton though!

I'm not Jarkko, but I belieeve this is true. If you go to the AEG Live UK site
http://www.aeglive.co.uk/index.php
there is a banner at the bottom of that home page for the Leonard Cohen tour that links directly to Seatwave.

Seatwave have Leonard Cohen prominently displayed on their website too, and, if I understand their operation correctly, this is a good thing.

I'm not sure its that good ... they put a good spin on it and ok it guarantees money back if you dont get your tickets but its still a tout site. They are'nt fixing the prices the sellers are and you will be paying over the odds - it means anyone who can get their hands on tickets for the first few rows of a gig can make a huge mark up and seatwave take their cut.
