Having failed the first time on the pre-sale, I'm not surprised I failed again.

Twickets it is.

I've attended the RAH nearly 30 times (mostly Teenage Cancer Trust gigs including Muse's in 2008) and when I saw The Killers in 2008 (another sold out gig in minutes) there were people behind me in the box just talking all the way through, spilled their wine on my coat. I think they were there just to say they were there not because they were a fan. Regardless of that I really love the Royal Albert Hall and feel so lucky I managed to get tickets to see them there again.

It's unlike anywhere else, never get tired of it
I don't know how many times we've been, first time was 92. We've always been very lucky with the crowd wherever we were in there. And the staff do wade in for misbehaviour if they can.
Got a Grand Tier box for John Williams in a fortnight so crossing our fingers we won't be sharing it with bellends.. At least we've got the front row

I'm still yet to go and that's part of why I'm gutted I missed out, as it looks like such a wonderful venue. One of the first music DVDs I bought was The Killers one in 2009 (almost missed out on tickets to that show) and it looked fantastic.

Maybe Interpol in a few weeks is an option. Maybe.

Torn between making an Uno, Eternally Missed or drumstick sign for this

Maybe some other club gigs around the same time will make my mind up for me

Ah yes, that Killers show was ace, wasn't it - though I think the 2008 Muse show topped it

99.9% of the time, comp tickets at the RAH are in the stalls blocks closest to the stage, and then there are people in the boxes who've got tickets through corporate connections. Standing tickets are a rarity if you're trying to blag in for free though, so standing at this gig should be pretty solid

Found this one out the hard way when I went to see Ghost in September - I've got a 'Friend of the Royal Albert Hall' membership and got brilliant seats in the stalls block closest to the stage... unfortunately I was surrounded by Industry Types (including a few lovely people who I know, to be fair) and a lot of empty seats, so the mood was considerably more subdued there than it was elsewhere in the venue.

They weren't even offering standing tickets to RAH Friends for this gig though, so it's pretty much guaranteed that they've all gone to fans. Which means standing should be off the chain

I really hope so!! Pyscho tour, SBE was mental in standing, how a muse gig should be IMO.

But at the drones tour, standing was really dull. There were a few good moments like the end of reapers but man, I'd never been so still in a standing muse crowd.

In all the times i've seen Muse i've still never caught them coming or leaving from a gig for a meet or pic, and from what's been posted it might not happen at RAH either. Most times I don't have the patience to try but for this gig, I'm going to have the whole day free. Is it basically a non starter?
