I won't even let myself go there. And what's worse it wouldn't just be me but my two mates who are coming with me. How devestated would they be? Thank GOD Bridgewater will replace them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even though everything is OK and I will eventiually get the tix this has been really upsetting.

I was looking up the Pavilion Theatre to see where it is and I stumbled on this article:

That's the Library Theatre isn't it? I got the impression from the bit in the article

Quote :
a new hub in the city centre - a huge Pavilion Theatre in Albert Square

that it's a temporary thingy for the festival.

This is my first post on this forum - so hi everyone

And I gonna start by saying how frustrated I am to miss out on a Halle ticket (probably by an hour of them selling out the other week) only to recieve this morning a nice glossy brochure from the Brigewater Hall telling me all about. Arrgh! This is after having to miss Blackpool cause my little girl got gastro-entritis.

So for those who have tickets - have a great time, for those who have a spare - think of me, and for those selling on ebay for massive profits, you gain from my misery.

I am just hoping that some karma (not that I really believe in it) will come back to me from when I resisted selling two spare David Gilmour tickets at the Albert Hall on ebay for a profit and they went to a couple of fans on a forum like this for cost.

If you go down to Willow Farm...javascript:emoticonp('flower')

Oh. OK. Well, at least I know basically where it is, even though I don't what it is.

Hi Sundaygirl, no my tickets haven't arrived yet, I phoned the box office yesterday and was told there have been lots of people contacting them about the ones printed and posted on the 24th. He seemed to think the post office had held them back for some reason, he said to give it a few more days but if they dont arrive to contact them and they'll print some more off for collection. I'm not going to be happy untill I'm sat in my seat watching them Neutral

I bet they've had a lot of complaints. The guy told me I could come any day to collect them, so I hope they're there waiting for me. Like you I won't be easy til I have these *##@@@**** in my hand!

Why on earth would the post office hold them back??? Ransom? Those jerks. Evil or Very Mad

How are you guys doing with your tix? Any joy? Mine still hadn't arrived today so I went down to the Bridgewater and they gave me another set. At least you can rest easy in the knowledge that you will get the tix eventually, one way or another.

What a mystery though... Suspect

You all started to panic me so I called BH and was told that they were posted out to me on 24/03. Seems that a whole batch have gone missing. What happens if I arrive and there's a postman sitting in my seat??!! Could lead to ugly scenes!!

They don't appear to be on e-bay. Am going to get my brother to pick up the re-prints for me I think rather than leave it till the day of the performance. Don't think my heart can take the strain!!

I've picked up mine and I am so relieved to finally have them. But I went to my post office today to see if they were there (out of curiosity) and they didn't find anything. I can maybe understand mine or someone else's tix going missing...BUT ALL OF US???

Something fishy...

nope, mine haven't arrived and i don't expect them to now. sundaygirl did you have to phone BH before you went down to collect them or did they just print them off when you got there? I'll have to go down later in the week when I'm off work. I hope they will keep records of who ordered the tix incase there are any problems on the night.

I had phoned and spoke to a guy who said I could come down and get new ones. Then When I went it was a girl who helped me. I simply said I ordered tix that never came and was told I could get new ons and she siad fine. She just needed to see the card I bought the tix with and Bob 's your uncle 3 Elbow tix are in my hand. Simple as that.

Oh, if someone were to attempt to sit in your seats the night of the show, as long as you have the card you paid for the tix with, as well as your address details, there would be no problem proving they are yours.

Instead of 999 it should be 666.

Sick and wrong, sick and wrong.
