Ah. I've seen the TicketMaster prices now, which are a WHOLE lot steeper than the £45 that GigWise was quoting for a standing ticket. Now I'm in the sticky situation that I've promised a friend a ticket for her birthday based on them costing £45, and can't really stretch to £73 for each of us! So disappointed, I love seeing Muse live and will be Very Sad Indeed if I miss this show. Plus I have to tell my friend she's not going after all. Grrrrrrr.....

Noooo, it's just a case of decent seats (or GA!!!), a bit of pre/post show exclusivity, and a few bits of merch.

Anything that involved Meet & Greet would be marketed as such and probably more in the £400-600 price range.

In my view, it's all just a cunning ruse to milk fans for all they can, and a sadly growing trend.

Do we think this VIP ticket will screw up chances of queueing for barrier? Perhaps people desperate enough (and rich enough to go with it) will buy this just to be able to jump the queue and it will leave the rest of us screwed with no chance.

The barrier's going to be a massive oval, there will be plenty of room on it, but the good spots might be gone.

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.
When I queued at the O2 in 2009, it was quite organised. We started off outside, and were then moved inside by security to another part, and then moved again to another, if I remember correctly.

Anyone get through? I got a circle of dots saying "loading", then an apology saying they were experiencing delays, and now the ticket portion of the webpage just doesn't load at all...

EDIT: Now "tickets are currently not available online. Please check back for availability."

Ahh fab thanks This sounds a similar setup to Birmingham which is always my preferred location.

I got 2 standing tickets no problem at all I failed in the pre-sale for The Psycho Tour and lucked out in the general sale. I'm glad this one went smoother.

I never fail to be astounded by the absolute shit show that is ticketmaster sales. This time I didn't even get an indication that I might have been in the running for a ticket, just a loading screen followed by an error message and now a smug message saying no tickets are available.

Am I allowed to call them c***s here?

Seated - near the front Block 107 (which was a bit better than the back of 111 that was offered first)

£15.00 'service charge' + 3.00 'facility charge' is insult to injury

They went on sale a good 30 seconds before the time stopped...

Sorted out my three O2 seats no problem. Couldn't stomach the top price, so went with the "only" £75 ones.

And, remember, so many presales are just a piece of hype, with only a small number of tickets allocated. I've lost count of the amount of stress I've had trying to get presale tickets and failing, with more luck in the general sale. Plus the face that some presales don't even have the best seats (if seats are what float your boat).
