I'm getting Stall 1 Row C seat 41 for Brighton but the seating plan just doesn't make sense to me. Any idea if it's a good seat

Such reasonable ticket prices too -much better than for the north american concerts!
Front row central seats available for £75 (plus fees) and NO mention of ' VIP' seats . I'm sure none of us feel aggrieved that we were denied the choice of paying a lot more for a ' goody bag'

i'd like to think that Jarkko's influence has prompted AEG to treat forum members kindly and i'm sure we are all deeply appreciative of that 8)

I really do feel sad that Leonard is not coming to Scotland. I was hoping to take my very elderly parents along. They did see him in Glasgow in 2008 and loved the show but are not now able to travel far - Edinburgh maybe.
Anyway I will go to Manchester and Leeds and will be their eyes and ears to report back to them. I hope they release a DVD of the Old Ideas tour :(

Me also LH. Really thought Scotland was in with a shout. By the time you factor in travel/ticket/hotel/time off work, I've decided it's not worth it. I've got my memories though - stretching back more than 40 years. Enjoy the gigs!

i've just looked closely at my email confirmations for the mancheser leeds and birmingham shows .
They all give the time as 6.30 pm . Its not clear whether this is ' doors open' or ' show time ' .If the latter it raises the prospect of long shows , assuming a reasonable curfew.

Sorry for all the posts - i just find myself quite excited on what must be one of if not the best day for 'latter day uk cohenites'
( sadly perhaps not so good for our scottish friends )

Almost certainly doors time. 6.30 pm is pretty "standard" for the LG Arena.

Yes, we have 3 tickets for the front row, John but think they maybe to the end of the row. I have seen a seating plan but it is not set out on the Brighton Centre site to coincide with the way the tickets are for LC. Finally back to Brighton and at a decent price, if there were was not such a crazy price of £33 for service charges and sending by post it would be even better!
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

The positive feedback warms my old heart; thanks for thanks!
However, I'd like to share all your thanks with Marie who is working hard on the presales and everything that is involved!
Thank you, Jarkko, but really the majority of the work falls on you and we all appreciate your efforts, your fighting for the fans and your getting up in the middle of the night to make posts or rearranging your work schedule to make posts. I am very pleased the UK presales have gone well and the waiting and worrying is over. Nice to see folks happy.

Yom Kippur begins the evening of September 13 and ends the evening of September 14. So, it would seem to be okay. But I asked Robert anyway and he said it is okay. Thanks for bringing this to our attention so quickly.

Thank you Jarkko and Marie. This pre-sale was so smooth and simple that I could not resist to buy a ticket for Brighton :)

Thanks for clarifying this so promptly Marie and putting our minds at rest.
