Every single time a ticket reappears, as soon as I go to get it it says it's not available anymore : '( How're you guys doing it, lmao

I honestly don't get how anyone can justify paying that much for a ticket, it's a complete rip-off! Yes, I'm aware it's a charity gig, but they clearly jacked-up the price so that the band still get paid. I've known much smaller bands do charity gigs, and get nothing in return. Hell, I've been to entire festivals for less than the price of these tickets!

Honestly I went in expecting about £70 - 80 and I'm pretty sure I missed out on a couple of tiers of tickets because I spent like 20 seconds just staring in disbelief at the prices that came up lmaooo. Still trying to see if choir tickets come up tho, they're in my budget range..

IKR? I'm actually impressed with it. I've done done several of these online mad dash for tickets, this was certainly the best so far. (Apart from the bit where tickets become unavailable by the time you've selected them.)

Those were some expensive tickets. It was also rather annoying to start choosing sections for the seated areas one by one, and try to find seats. Managed to get one luckily for stalls seating. I wanted to go standing, but the SBE crowd at the front was just too crazy to experience again. Wouldn't probably be as crazy at RAH as SBE though. Very happy to be going nevertheless!

All the proceeds from SBE went to the Passage charity iirc, and those tix were quite expensive. Don’t see why it’d be different here but we’ll see I guess.

I’ve always found G&T to be really good, probs my fave ticket buying website. Not sure what they know that so many others don’t in order to have their shit together

I also love it that tickets can only be re-sold through Twickets. That's fair.

In my experience Gigs & Tours, along with similar site See Tickets (although I haven't used that in ages, it might have changed), have always been incredibly smooth and quick to use - as long as you have your address and card details already saved on your account, buying tickets never takes more than 20-30 seconds.

Makes you wonder why sites like Ticketmaster and AXS need to be so hair-tearingly over-complicated.

It's Muse! I have saved money for 2 years since my last Muse concert in 2016, because that is what I want (now I have to start saving money again for the tour in 2019, but hey this gig is special). It is not a rip off in my opinion. Muse will give you more than worth your money. If you don't like it, then just don't go and watch the dvd.

Standing

I didn't think standing tickets were too badly priced, the 165 seating seemed very steep though. I managed to get 2 arena standing tickets, took me about 6 refreshes after saying i was in a queue, didn't realise how lucky i was to run into no problems until reading through this page!

If the gig has sold out, then the ticket prices are arguably not too high. You don't know the band are being paid - neither do I, though it's quite likely they're not. And, as a charity gig, why wouldn't the charity aim to raise as much as it can?

All that said, I had to walk away. A few pangs of regret, but £275 for a pair of reasonable stalls seats....

Also, while it's a gorgeous venue, and small for Muse, there'll likely be just standard gig production - don't expect drones and the like flying around (though, at that price, I'd expect every ticket to come with a personal jet-pack).

And I thought the See site worked as well as could be hoped for with high numbers seeing a small number of ticket. Depending on how restricted the pre-sale allocation was, it could be even easier on Friday - those prices are a pretty good filter!

Should still be a special night for those who've gone for it
