Bloody hell, I feel really lucky that we got tickets in the presale. I tried to grab some standing tickets instead this morning (we've got choir seats) and everything sold out before I could even get anything in my basket

This is why I'm kinda glad they're playing stadiums next year... might actually stand a chance of getting a standing ticket

Still my 2nd favourite gig to SBE
This is an unusual experience. I'm a regular RAH patron and have never seen behaviour like this. After all, you'd presume to be a fan if you're paying over £100 for a ticket. That said, there are always people there on comps, who are less engaged. But also bear in mind that not everyone has the same expectations of gig behaviour - though I'd still expect the venue to be standing and on fire from the get go with Muse!

Wishing everyone who got tickets a great time. Still a few regrets about giving up the seats I had in the presale, but my pocket thanks me..!

There are 12 entrances - which should all open at the same time. Can't remember which door is Standing but it will be on the tickets. Expect ticket scans and bag searches from ushers (RAH staff no security) at the first door.
If you're standing and want barrier then you'll need to go immediately downstairs, not into the main corridor/bar/merch area. Head towards the centre of the building, past the bar entrances and there will be another door with an usher checking tickets. There are 3 (I think) doors into the arena, once through, you need to go back up some stairs to get to the actual standing area. It's not big but the stage is quite wide.

RAH have responded to my tweet to say definitely sold out. Very gutted but have saved myself £200 today. Planning on going to two gigs next year so will be better prepared for presale next time! 😎

Thanks - you've saved me some RSI, now it's just the twickets page to keep refreshing.

I'm planning on 2 or 3 at next year's tour - I did 2 at the Drones tour and still wanted more - I've never had real trouble getting tickets for the regular tours, but there are more days to choose from.

Shit, I thought it’d be pretty easy to rely on Twickets if I missed out but I’m glad I didn’t have to now, that sounds stressful too. Maybe it’ll calm down a bit once the initial surge of people looking this week dies down a bit.

Just realised this is the first time I’ll have ever seen them during the winter, in 15 gigs. Latest I’d ever seen them in a year before was the start of September and, other than that, they’ve all been during spring/summer. Totally inconsequential information but y’knowwww.....I’m really, really excited so I’ll pick out anything while the time passes. Makes me more wary about queueing up for hours and hours outside though

If you're seated then there's space for a big coat, if you're standing then long long queued for the cloakroom!

It's not too stressful, just clicking refresh every 10-15 mins in case, just a bit depressing when there's nothing. At least it looks like I'm gonna exchange on my first home today, so that's taking the sting off a bit.

If you contact RAH box office direct by phone then you may be able to get lucky as these seats are released for sale when the seat owners decide they don't want to go to an event (some send them back to RAH, some stick them on tout sites ).
It's unlikely to be today but it's worth a try closer to the time.
"All tickets are sold through seetickets" was their answer

Standing and aiming for barrier so it’ll be thermals and suffering for me maybe a hoodie that I can tie round my waist once I’m in

Closest I think I’ve come to that was queuing up for an hour for a QOTSA gig last November and that was rough iirc, so Christ knows what this is gonna be like if I’m gonna be there all morning/day. I don’t cope with cold well
