Default Such a stressful time

can't believe what stress we've all been through in the last few days. I can't believe how little each ticket agent know about whats going on. Neither ticktmaster or the venue have been clear at all about what the ticket allocation is. Whenever i've phoned any of the venues they've told me that there is no way of booking tickets over the phone till friday. Even when i called at 1 minute to 9:00 this morning wembley said that i couldn't book. Then it turns out wembley, nec and probably most of the other venues have a pre sale starting 9:00 this morning. but they're still unclear about what the allocation is and can't say whether these are better than whatever go on sale tomorrow. What the hells the point in a pre-sale anyway? Seeing as anyone could just phone up the venue today and get them on pre sale what difference will it make when they go on general sale? Will there be different seats or not. Luckily i'm finally sorted for all my tickets now but i'm still completely confused about what went on sale, when and by whome. Anyone else feel like this?

I did see block B at NECs page too, but rows were all in the back. So i hope (wishfully think) that some of the block still is reserved for tomorrow???

I'm glad Holland hardly ever has pre-sales and with only one ticketcompany they always can tell you what is going on. You're so right Helena, this is indeed stressful!!!

And to think that i could have gotten row 4 for NEC for both night if Ticketmaster hadn't messed up the website!!!

Woman on phone this morning said some of block B at the NEC is saved for tomorrows sale...but they've told me something different every time i've called so who knows?!!
Same as Glasgow and Cardiff was told they didnt go on sale until Friday but today i rang on the off chance and got great seats for both!
Think they need to get their act together..have a staff meeting and decide on one thing to tell people!

Waltjo when i rang them this morning they said tickets werent going on sale until tomorrow,then i got a pre sale letter in the post so i rang them back and got them!
The letter doesnt have any kind of code on it tho just tell them you have one and hopefully they'll sell them to you?
Good luck!
