Wow, two more concerts in Gent. But I feel very lucky to be able to see at least one!
I was a little worried about the payment, but today I got the word that the payment is fine and the tickets will be sent.
Can anyone telle me if there really are no camera's allowed? I mean I have seen all the pictures and you tube films from 2010, so although the site says : no camera's I can't imagine they really are that strict?
I would be happy if someone told me I can bring my camera and won't loose it at the entrance...
Good luck for the one who are still buying tikets.

In 2010 I attended two concerts of Leonard in Ghent. I had hidden my (not so big) camera in my back pack and got in. The second time they checked it but only briefly. My sister had to throw away her drinks though.. I shot photo's from the tribune (section I) and at some point security told me not to do that, so I stopped,always being a good girl ;-) ). The second concert I was in the front row (lucky my!!!) and shot some pictures too, but not too many, as I didn't dare. But no one stopped me! And I saw Maarten(the moderator on this forum here) shot a lot of stunning pictures, but maybe he is alowed..? Are you, Maarten?

:-) I'm not allowed to take pics... But I never had any trouble with taking pictures (and I've been taking a lot of them!). The Ghent security does standard, brief checks at the "doors" (open air venue, you can hardly call that doors... entrance would be better), but small cameras are fine. Just don't bring any professional cameras!

PS: come and say hi next time you see me! :-)

Maarten, I will do that ! I saw you looking at me while passing by, at that last concert, and I saw you wondering:" What is she doing in the front row, who is she"? But I didn't dare to disturb you, you were very busy, talking to many people you knew . I knew your face from an article about you in Gazet van Antwerpen. I'll send you a friend request on Facebook, so you can see my face too, ok?

I don't know how this works for folks in Europe, but, when I need to make a purchase out of the US, I always make sure to call my credit card company in advance to let them know I am going to make a purchase outside of the area of where I live. Otherwise, it sends up 'flags' to the credit card company of a potential fraud situation. Always call your credit card company in advance of making any purchase outside of your locality or that purchase may be blocked by them for your protection.
Just so people know this: I called my bank to find out if this was the issue, & I was told that there is no "suspicious transaction alert" or "fraud protection", or anything like that on my card, & that it should work anywhere, anytime. So, unless the woman I spoke with didn't know what she was talking about, it seems that the issue was not coming from this end, but from the sherpa website.

So far, I have received confirmation of payment for one concert, but not for the other one. I checked my account in the website, & the language used is confusing (even when translated into English), but it looks like the payment for the second concert is still being processed (even though I sent payment for both in one lump sum). Hopefully, they will confirm the other half of the payment soon.

I now have a seat allocation "Golden Circle Parterre B, 15-1 and 15-2" - is this good, does anyone know? :)

edit - sounds like I am 15 rows from the front, which is pretty much what I predicted. Darn, shoulda remembered to be at computer one hour ahead of UK time! :D

Yes, Row 15, seats 1 and 2. In block B that means right next to the center aisle, so perfectly in the center.

This is probably not the correct place to put it but I thought for those of you who haven't seen this great video before and are going to Ghent, this should wet your appetite! The ending is not the usual way to finalise a session!

.....maybe some of you will be lucky enough to see a 2012 soundcheck!

goodnight, victoriaplum
i don't think that the timezone-difference has made a lot of difference for your seat number : i was there in the first minutes from the start of the sale, and got seats B14-5&6, not so close to stage (+- 15 m), but perhaps we're lucky, to have places right in front of mr cohen.
