I had to pay through the bank transfer option because Sherpa wouldn't accept either of my U.S. credit cards; I went to my bank with the info Sherpa provided, & the bank wouldn't do the transfer because they need the NAME of a bank to send it to, & Sherpa did not provide the name of any bank (they only provided bank acct. #'s, etc., but no name). So I sent an email to Sherpa, asking for this info, & am very anxiously awaiting a reply. Anyone know anything about this??
Rachel,
It's too late now, but I'll call Sherpa tomorrow and ask for their bank details!

The swift-code (BBRUBEBB100) is listed as ING-belgium if i'm correct, so that should be the bank...

Thank you so much for your replies, thefuturebrother, winterblossom, David & Maarten!

A very kind & savvy friend sent me a link to find the name of the bank through the IBAN #, & according to what I found, you are right, it is ING Belgium. So I was able to do the transfer - whew!! And YAY!! Now I just have to hope that they get it within 5 days, so that my order won't get cancelled (the bank here said they couldn't guarantee it - I don't know why - seems to me that these computer transactions should take much less than 5 days).

I hope I don't have this issue with the Paris & Dublin sites tonight! I mean, what kind of "global economy" is it when different countries don't accept each others' credit cards - a rather dysfunctional global economy, I'd say. . .

Thanks again for your kindnesses in replying to my post.

Jill & David: I'm so glad you will be there, & looking forward to seeing you again too!!

Rachel,
The 5 day time frame is "flexible" I think... Don't worry if your payment gets there a couple of days later!

I also payed through banktransfer and hope it will work. Sherpa website says they send an email as soon as they have received the payment. So keep an eye on the email box next 5 days :shock: :shock:
BTW It says 5 work days, and there is the next weekend in between, so we have actually 7 days :lol:

I'm sorry to see that people have been having problems booking with US credit/debit cards (as you rightly say, Rachel, what on earth sort of global economy is this?!) I used to have the same problem (i.e. it appeared that the merchant abroad wouldn't accept my card), but Chase told me to always telephone them beforehand to let them know I'm going to be making a foreign transaction - apparently this releases the "suspicious transaction" flag. Since I've done that I've had no difficulties, but perhaps I'm just lucky with Chase. Anyway, it may be too late for those of you who've been struggling today, but it might help people who have yet to book.........

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Ghent in August!

Like everyone else, I am so grateful for the ease with which I bought tickets this morning - thanks Jarkko, Maarten and anyone else involved! See you in Ghent!

I am still surprised that we were not allocated seat numbers - can't wait to get the tickets to see where I am. Does anyone remember how the 'golden circle' was numbered?

I was at the last concert in Ghent - it was a magical, warm and beautiful evening in every respect . I also feel privileged to be going to the very first concert of the tour - that feels really special.

To add to this brilliant year - we have already booked to go to Hydra for a week (and then on to Spetses)- if anyone has any tips for where to visit, eat, swim etc I'd love to hear from you....

A summer to look forward to!

Cilla.

Cilla,
I was with the Belgian concert promotor today and forgot to ask about the seating chart. Set up will be identical to last concerts. Will post more info when I get it.

goodnight, all you lucky people
i envy you about one thing : presale for wheelchair-people only starts when general public pre-sale starts, on friday. i can only hope there are some places left for less mobile people, when all of you will have taken your seats.
but olympia, paris, is a great alternative : very good places, just behind sound&light engineers, with free view at the stage, and very helpfull, friendly people. i hope carla & nicolas will not be there once more at the same night; because last time, they blocked all exits, "security rules", they said.
