3 standing tickets confirmed. Myself, plus friend and her bf. All mad Musers.

Just one question - where is the chase, and how do we cut to it. It's not November 4th. :p

If I remember correctly, there's a family pub the otherside of the roundabout next to the arena. I've never been in there so I have no idea what it's like.

I think there's a handful around the arena, Attercliffe Common mainly. There is also a place called Valley Centertainment opposite the arena. They've had a bit of a refurbish there and there's loads of eateries, great for families.

There's Meadowhall shopping centre down the road if anyone is wanting to make a day of it, so you've got plenty to do, and you've not even been into the town centre.

Nearest train station is Meadowhall. There's a tram stop at the arena and centertainment, and bus stops about for local buses.

All I remember from Sheffield Arena is the 2 pint cups. Truly Brilliant!!!

My order managed to go through on the Sheffield site.

Block 204, seated. Not amazing, but I'm just thankful it managed to go through in the end.

Not a fan of standing, don't want to miss and visuals due to not being over 6ft :)

When did you order them? Just now? Becuase it keeps telling me that the tickets are unavailable, and I don't know whether to stop trying or not! :(

First, pray to the gods.

Have your hotmail/gmail logged in and ready in another window/tab


Get on
http://www.sheffieldboxoffice.com/


hope that it loads, find the Muse link. Gods willing you'll get through to the page where you set up an account with the website, do that, then get through to buying.

It's basically being flooded with traffic right now, nobody can get on.

Godspeed!

I'm logged onto it, and have been since 8:55am, clicking the link! :LOL:
I keep putting in the information for the purchase page, and then clicking "Find Tickets", but it keeps coming up with:
"Sorry, the tickets you have selected are unavailable. Please make a different selection or try another performance" :(

Heh, just kidding - there's still hope yet! People are only just getting tickets, and it says NOWHERE on the Sheffield Arena site that they are sold out - only on Reseller websites.
There are traffic problems on the Sheffield Arena site, showing that they have a lot of people on at any time. Someone here has just bought tickets from block 104 - there's another 40 blocks ;)

Keep trying!

Mooks
05-06-2009, 09:18 AM
I know it's heartbreaking not to get tickets, but there is still 5 months, and there's always people who buy tickets and at a later date cannot go, or someone who buys an extra one.

Keep and eye on http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?t=60317

It's THE place for tickets.

There's always traffic problems on there when someone big sells tickets. It was horrendous for U2. Until it says sold out, keep trying, use your inner Jedi :p

The Sheffield Phoneline was busy, and after 40 minutes of business, I got put on hold for 5 minutes. After that it was an easy breeze getting the tickets. :)
So dont give up anyone, they wont be sold out until the day arrives. Arenas HAVE to sell gig tickets on the day for commercial purposes, so if you cant get any today, try again tomorrow and stuff.
Again, good luck! >.<

Just keep it going :) once you get through, then youll know for sure whether there are still some available today or not. After that just keep checking twice a day for any updates. The sale may officially start at 9:00am, but the tickets are available in waves, not as one big block. :)

If anybody has a single standing ticket going spare for this gig, I would be more than happy (read: freakin' ecstatic) to take it off your hands. I'll pay more than face value (but not that much more) and shower you with flowers and chocolate. My friends are going, but I could not get a standing ticket from over here in New Zealand for love nor money, and I'm totally gutted. PM me if you can be of assistance, and I shall remember you in my will.

Ticketmaster was just rubbish. At like 9 as soon as you could buy tickets they were gone. See was busy and I just kept refreshing and it then just came up to put details in. Kept saying credit card details were invalid, I could of died but it went through and got confirmation email as well. :D

BTW there is still seats on sale on the sheffield arena website if anyone is desperate!

edit: also hope you guys are baring in mind that this is supposed to be in "in the round" gigs, that will confuse alot of people with their seats if it turns out to be right.

Yeah...it may also mean that mine ends up being right by the stage, so that'd be quite cool! :D

It's where the audience are all around the stage, instead of just in front of it.

Well done to those that have bagged tickets. I've just heard my parents have got seated tickets, and will be travelling from Devon. They'll be able to pick up the remains of myself and other half from standing :p

Those of you who are wondering where to stay, there are a couple of places that are near by to book. I would suggest if you can, get them this weekend.

Hahaha!. I'm sooo glad my mate got my ticket today along with his and my other pal.

At first I was really gutted that they werent playing Newcastle and I thought my mates I was going with would say Sheffield is too far away and they wouldn't be able to go...I was wrong!

I was telling my him, whilst we were waiting for them to be released, to keep refreshing the page incase they decide to sell them slightly earlier. And it got to 8 54am or summit like that and I said this is where you really need to keep refreshing. Then at 8 57 he suddenly went THEY'RE ON SALE! I was like BBBBBUUUUYYYY!!!!!! But the server went down straight away on gigsandtours/seetickets. So I told him to go to another site selling them and get them from there and long behold he got straight through. There was a moment of silence where I thought he hadn't got them, with him talking loads during the previous one. Then he said I GOT THEM!!! and we were like YEESSSAAA!!!!! haha anyways that is my little story about my ordeal...I can't wait now though

NOVEMBER 4TH - STANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SSSSWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! HAHA

Im looking forward to this one more than any other on the tour.
It being a smaller venue than the others on the line up will give a more cosy feel between us and the band and with it being the first night of the UK tour, its bound to be a blast, plus as they've said in previous interviews.. first night of the tour in the UK is always a highlight.

Pooooop, why did you have to say that? :supersad:

I want all the Butterflies and Hurricanes ones for my bedroom and Hysteria somewhere, probably amongst all the Dali in the lounge.

Perhaps I could have posters in my study, and never let visitors in there... framed of course, not ruining my paintwork with sticky stuff! Shit, now I really do sound old...:$

My mum keeps on fretting about getting our tickets delivered to our house, she thinks they'll forget or something :LOL:

according to see tickets, they won't be sent out until AT LEAST October 14th, so no need for anyone to start panicking yet...they say if you don't get them by October 28th to ring, can't remember if it was ring see themselves or ring the arena.

I was on seetickets from 9am but couldn't get through! I had two phones to my ears but it was engaged every time. By 20 past seetickets had sold out and it wasn't looking good. I came back from a shower and the sheffield box office site had loaded and I reserved some tickets. But it wouldn't accept my details, I couldn't figure out why. I was about to give up but then tried putting spaces in my card number and it worked :D I had a major buzz and rang all my friends to rant at;)
thats my story;) See you at Sheffield :D

That sucks. At least you'll be there though right! My mates are leaving soon (going abroad for a year) so I couldn't get anyone to go with me, but there was no way on earth I was missing this gig. I've never seen Muse and always wanted to and it'll be my 21st the fortnight after. So yeh, I'll be on my tod as well.

I got two seats, tier 118 if I'm not wrong... I'm coming right for this from Italy!!

I am now hunting tickets for Liverpool, so that I won't have to fly during the week just for 1 concert :(

any suggestion on the nearest airport and how to get to the arena from there? many thanks in advance!
Hi, not sure if anyone has replied to you about this, but thought id shed some light on it for you!!
there is Doncaster Sheffield Robin Hood Airport about 1 hour down the road (around 5 minutes from my house!) and it is very easy to get to the arena from there!
from the airport are several shuttle buses to Doncaster town centre interchange, where you can then catch the train to sheffield, then a short tram ride to the arena.
it really is quite simple even if it may not sound like it!!
if you would like, i can send you links so you can see it for real, ie, prices, times etc, just let me know! hope this helps =]
