Have you seen the price!!! Woah

Flipping heck yes prices a little steep!! But missed out earlier in the year so guess will have to try and ignore the 6-9 processing fees on top of the ticket costs too!!!:eek:

Very high prices and a week's notice (4 days for the presale). And a disappointingly short tour for the UK. Not sure how to feel about this one...

Also agreed.

To think I thought "Who would pay that?" a while back when I saw those sort of fees being charged for Rush, The Who and Fleetwood Mac.

Has anyone here ever queued for a gig at The 02 for anyone before? I'm in the Midlands and trying to work out whether I'm better off at The 02 or Manchester. I've heard crappy stuff about queueing in Manchester before, so figured I might be better off in London, but I've never been to The 02 before. Both destinations are pretty much equal for me to get to by train. Obviously London will work out more expensive, but I can make a mini trip out of it anyway. I love queueing for barrier, so if The 02 have the best queue system then it may help swing it.

Maybe I'm being stupid here but people are complaining about these prices?

I'm sure I paid more when I saw them in the O2 in 2009!

I was expecting three figures per ticket! I spoke to my partner and she was "that's a really good price!"

Ok, I'd love to pay less of course but this was less than I expected.

Surely the top bands charge over 100. Sure we also paid 80 something for Queen in January. And fairly sure when we considered Paul Simon and Sting earlier this year that was more expensive too.

Or am I missing something?

General admission tickets were just over 40 for the O2 in 2009. If you paid significantly more than that, then you probs bought from a tout.

70 for a band of Muse's level is expensive, especially for an arena gig. For comparison, standing tickets for T2L's stadium gigs were 50 (just over with added fees and whatnot).

I was in seats for the O2 2009 gig I went to (when I picked the wrong night) and my tickets were in the 40 range. Not quite two for the price of one to this one, although MuseWiki says Wembley in 2007 was 37...

I thought 65 was excessive for the 2012 arena show and refused to pay it, then wound up going on a 30 behind-stage seat, which would've been great had it not been for the oddly sterile nature of the sound. Seeing as I wasn't entirely happy with that, 50 (nearly as much as Emirates 2013) for the same seats and 75 for GA makes me wonder if they've lost their minds. Either that or hopeful I'd get what I think would be money's worth - a 2 1/2 hour set and proper drones rather than those shitty things people normally crash into parks. Wishful thinking ofc.

Yet there's still a shitload of people both on here and on Twitter prepared to pay it, so maybe I'm the crazy one...

Norwichred 12-09-2015 08:21 PM

Ok, my bad on the price.

I was sure I paid more in 2009 but I paid official prices so I obviously didn't.

I guess I'm stupid, as I will be prepared to pay this.

Whether I can actually get tickets or not is another matter but I will try.

What we were surprised at is the hotel we normally stay at for O2 gigs is 200 for the night which is three times what we normally pay :(. So will have to stay somewhere else if lucky.

They seem to have significantly bumped up their ticket prices across the board this time around and I don't know why. I think I even remember saying a couple of months ago that I was worried about how much the arena shows might cost. There was that whole debacle in Brazil, some rumours of Singapore prices being pretty silly, and then the Psycho Tour (yes, the gigs were great but 40+ for 15 songs in a tiny venue is bad).

Why are they bumping them up this much now though? :erm: At this rate, if they do indeed do a stadium tour, you could be looking at 80-90 for GA. It's not right imo, unless they seriously bump up their performances.

forevermusic 12-09-2015 08:32 PM

I do wanna go because despite it being pricey for what it was, Brighton was fantastic, and even when I've had gigs where I found something to be critical about, I do enjoy myself.

I would've been alright paying this if it was a stadium tour (paid that for Foo Fighters, who would have only had a video screen had they not required Dave's Throne), but for the sodding O2, I'm not entirely on board. And yeah it does seem odd that the prices are more now. Sure, with inflation and increased costs, I get why they might be a bit more, but this seems ridiculous.

Though if stadiums do happen, its worth noting that the Unsustainable tour was cheaper to do GA than T2L arenas were.

Maybe I'll get lucky and find a second hand in the last few hours for less than that eye-whopping price.
