Well, it did not happen yesterday. Because of the Easter I'm pretty sure they will open it Tuesday morning!

You're right, Jarkko !
But now, we are on Tuesday 14 and still nothing about pre-sales.... :roll:
Yesterday evening, I had the confirmation that the general sales are for tomorrow (15) at 10 a.m. by the Frencn newspaper Midi-Libre (the redactor is in contact with me).

Yes, I tested Nimes and Vienne, too, this morning (soon it will be 10 am in France, we have to make another attempt). Nothing from AEG, have also emailed them!

Oh yes, the problem is that we got nothing from AEG !
Today is a worked day and their office in the UK are open, I suppose.... :(

FNAC indicates : the sales for Vienne will open on Wed. 15 at 10 a.m.
(no pre-sales ??)
They don'l list Nimes !!!!! :(

I've checked GDP right now, Nimes and Vienne are listed but sales are not yet open.
(again, no pre-sales ?)

Vienne is also on sale at GDP (unreserved seating).

Has anyone managed to find a seating plan for Nimes?

I assume that. like in Lyon, the Romans have forgotten to engrave seat numbers on the tiers (shame on them!). You will have to start queing up early to have the closest seats. On the other hand, these theaters usually offer a good view and sound even if you sit higher up.

That's as maybe but GDP seem to be managing to sell tickets for specific section, row and seat numbers! Perhaps the Romans were better at tracing numbers in the dirt on the arena floor?

I finally found a seating plan for the Arenes at Nimes:

l_4202.gif (42.98 KiB) Viewed 4809 times
According to another plan I have seen, the stage will be on the left hand side as you look at the plan, between blocks 110 and 210 so it looks like the pre-sale allocated the seats at the other end of the arena as the "best" seats available (I have block 202). Great for a bullfight maybe but a bit like sitting at the very back of the O2 arena for a Leonard Cohen show.

Does anyone know: are the "cheap" €62 unreserved seats the ones on the arena floor ie the seats nearest the stage if you arrive early enough?

I've got Block 202 Rang 0 and have no idea where it is either !! Rang 0 could mean row "zero" or the row after "N". I have just looked on the FNAC website. They have a plan of the arènes and it looks like I could have bought a ticket from them this morning on the front row to the left as you look at the stage :roll:
