*Sigh* Why is it, I bought tickets on Pre-Sale for tonight's gig and got Rear Stalls seats, yet I could just go online today and buy 2 seats on the seventh row. Ticket sales systems suck...

Wow, that sucks for those of you who bought tickets way in advance. :( This has happened to me before, where I thought I had front row seats for a Mika concert, only to show up and find 3 rows of chairs in front of me! The people in those rows bought their tickets 2 days earlier, and I had purchased mine 2 months in advance. I totally feel for you guys. :hug:

I hope you'll enjoy the show regardless.

Hey mine is worse :P

I bought tickets to see Frankie Boyle. Purposely, as he is somewhat er, harsh on his audience I got tickets for the 3rd row from the front. 3rd row. So a bit hidden in the masses so as not to be picked on. Tickets arrived in the post, 3rd row. All good.

I get to the gig and we are shown to our seats in the middle of the FRONT SODDING ROW

:shock: :bang: :sofa: :doomed:

Cue much hilarity but we did get singled out for some words. Funny but still something I'd rather have avoided. But at least I wasn't the 15 year old kid at the show with his parents :roll2: :snakeman:

:lol: And that's why I tend to avoid front row at stand up comedy gigs too :P

BBC Radio show reunion! (Jimmy Carr played 'Kipper' in the FOTC BBC radio series). :)
