Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

Bela - I am with you on this. The 02 is grotesque yet we can make it amazing ... LC will be playing to us, and we shall be in the audience (I have decided to take binoculars). We can overcome the venue and stay in the moment. It is the only chance ... I feel that we have to transform the experience,...

Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

... I am really enjoying the good feeling about people turning up into "the aircraft hanger" to listen to LC and his troubadours ... it feels that something transforming has happened. It seems that we are making the best out of a poorly chosen venue. As said in other threads, LC will likely know not...

Re: O2 tickets- anyone still looking

roscoe -
when should one hunt the Ticketmaster site in the hope of a better ticket? (A month before? A week before? etc). ... I guess it is hard to be definite, so - hey, ho - back to the old routine of checking the little screen many times per day ...

Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

Hi, Bela! You and I will be there --- who are the other 19,998? I really appreciated honeyrose's photo of the O2 audience in another thread ... I shall take a telescope (I shall be in Block 102 - half way down the auditorium). I am still holding onto the belief/truth that it will nevertheless be a v...

Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

Hello - I have just phoned a ticket agency (0871 230 0010) and was told that "Blue Alert tickets" are available. One ticket costs £200. Best seat (Block 101 Row L) entitles the owner to attend the 6 pm pre-concert party (???), plus "a free drink" (size not stated). £200! (I said: "thank you, but 'no...

Re: Pre-Sale Tickets (from Ticketmaster)

Thanks to AndrewGMooney - I really appreciate the content of what you wrote (see beforehand) - it calmed me down from spitting teeth at Ticketmaster; also to henders74 above - I agree totally. And I'm praying for a possible future return to the Royal Albert Hall to promote the new album ... In the m...

Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

No floor seats available - only through their offer of £750+ !!! "How can this possibly be?" I got a ticket - BK 102 (I think)...

Re: Leonard Cohen: TOUR 2008

... I agree with marc belanger: "I'd rather send him (LC) the money" too .... rather than go to the 02 in London ... ... yet ... and, like annie blue I hope that the UK pre-sale is tomorrow. BBC Ceefax and ITV/Ch4 teletexts are running news of the tour in their Entertainment sites. ... I am trying t...
