Default ### TICKET NIGHTMARES ###

THE TICKETING SYSTEM FOR US SO CALLED DIE HARD FANS WAS A JOKE...

I WISH THIS WAS A PROPER PRE-SALE TO JUST REGISTERED USERS OF THIS WEBSITE,AFTER ALL THIS IS A UB40 WEBSITE AND WE HAD NOTIFICATION OF A PRESALE WHICH IS NOT A PRESALE IF EVERYONE HAS ACCESS TO THE INFO/TICKETS

ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS SIGN UP FOR GET SLOW....SORRY GET LIVE WHICH IS OWNED BY OUR FAVOURITE TICKET SELLERS "TICKETMASTER" !!! BUT THE GUY I SPOKE TO SAID THEY WERE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM,WHAT A LIAR

ALL LINKS WERE TO THEM

THE PRESALE WAS FOR 09.00 OR 10.00 CARDIFF DID NOT COME ON SALE UNTIL AFTER MIDDAY,WHAT A JOKE

ONLY AFTER ONE LAST DESPERATE CLICK AND REFRESH OF THE PRESALE PAGE DID I GET THROUGH TO A BUYING PAGE....

MOST OF THE TICKETS ON SALE AS OTHERS HAVE POINTED OUT WERE WAY BACK IN WHICHEVER ARENA,I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND WAS IT A PRESALE OR NOT...?

WHAT A LOAD OF B*!!*(KS

THIS IS IN NO WAY A SLIGHT ON UB40 WHATSOEVER BUT ON THE DISTRIBUTORS OF THE TICKETS.

TOTALLY P!$$£D OFF

the tickets were in no way meant to be exclusive to us fans here on the bb as far as i know the information was just put up so we all had the chance of booking early.But i agree about get live its a very shoddy service

Hi Chucka!

I have two spare tickets to Cardiff block 2, row M, if you or anyone else is interested.

I panicked and got them quick when they came up, only to find seconds later that row C was still free! Not impressed.

Still got better tickets, hope you managed to get decent ones in the end, mate!

Hey guys, thanks so much for the warm welcome back.

I pop in now and again, but we have been running a business for the last 2 yrs, and barely get time to come online nowaways!

Would never miss a gig in Cardiff though!!!

Neil, yes, I still have the tickets

Karen - hows things babes? See you there mate (beer or two before maybe, to catch up?!?)

Mozzy - so glad you are still on here, hun, we are all doing well- are you going to Cardiff???

Big love

Vallie
