The Frankfurt-Show is cancelled, maybe? Frankfurt is now dropped from the AEG-Tour-Plan:

I hope not! But also Oberhausen and Rotterdam (I've got tickets for them as well as for Frankfurt) are also not on http://aeglive.com/events.php?client_id=2827&page=1 so I'm still having hope.

The fact that eventim has stopped to sell tickets for Frankfurt looks alarming... but of course, there is still hope.

So it might be that all shows for which you have tickets get cancelled... :cry:

I don´t know exactly, but fact is the ticket-sale weaks and the show is dropped from the AEG-Homepage.
Better you book Hamburg or Berlin. But note that Berlin almost sold-out. I pray for the Hamburg-Concert - we have tickets in the first row in front of the Stage! I´m always in shock of the Berlin-Waldbühne-desaster, please not such a horror again.

Well, they could be. Would be strange if all of them get cancelled. But I still had the luck to also visit Amsterdam, and I had a great time there. So it's not a disaster, would just be a big dissappointment.

Cmon fellow Germans, put off your depression glasses. Only the Frankfurt sales stopped, and if you have watched how badly the Frankfurt sales went, it's not really a big surprise.

Well, if they want to sell more tickets they should'nt stop selling them...
I think in Germany it needs more time for the shows to be sold out, mostly because touting is not such a big problem and people do not buy in a hurry. So just give the Frankfurt folks enough time and the Festhalle will be filled!

I agree with you. In Germany it needs more time to filled a concert-hall. There are still enough tickets for Hamburg, München and Oberhausen. For Berlin there are 1137 tickets in sale only (from 17.000). That´s means that only 6,7 % of seats are available, 93,3% of them are sold out.

With respect to ticket sales Berlin is somewhat special, because, well, there are a lot of people in Berlin :-)
Furthermore it attracts more audience from other countries, I guess.
