Sorry for the title start, NO I AM NOT.

I am Glad this is the last time i ever have to book tickets with SECC.

For a company to tell you that the allocations are gone and or the seats are sold. at 09:00.45 on the day of the sale.

and all of a sudden they start offering the tickets for sale AFTER THE BOX OFFICE IS CLOSED, this stinks like s H I T.

Soul and JAy were up tonn1ght and a wonderful time was had, good company and a fun time. Better than continuing the Sit on the web site search for tickets, after they left i had a look at the web site, the tickets that were all sold or not available were, so i guess that the front row tickets have been handed to ticket touts and ebay rippers.

Three ****ing days and a Big Phone bill and a waste of my life for tickets that i was told were already sold, to go on sale.

You can stick UB40 Gigs in Glasgow up any spare spot you have, cause somer ******* ****ed up royally.

I am Ashamed to be associated with this SCOTTISH GIG.

Money Grabbing low down filthy lying scum, and i am trying ot be polite.

Anybody that thought they were to late and got the cream GOOD EFFORT, the rest that ended up buying Shite for cream i am sorry....

OK Folks i admit i am F u c k i n g Livid.

If this had been normal first come first served than maybee i would still be in thsame position

Point being it was not.. And on 30+ telephone calls i am told they are sold or they arfe allocated outwith the SECC, blatant lies to enable the B A S T A R D S to sell shite to people under the guise of Cream thast is in the eyes of the LAW FRAUD BY MISREPRESENTATION.

You as the Punter paid good money for bad, and got ripped off.

This is not now nor ever has been about the actual tickets, or "POLE POSiTION", this is the fact that the FANS are being abused and the law is being broken.

I am going to get well and truly plastered now, because i am plain SICK.

Sorry to say but they prob wont reply and if do it will be some total bullshit i know this isnt Brians or any of deps fault etc but i think all those that have had problems getting tickets info whatever need to make it know to dep etc so maybe they can talk to promoters etc to stop this Happening again

Hmmm doubtful hun, gotta say. BUT they might.
Dont know what use it will do you even if they do though.

At the end of the day, had people not been looking out 4 one another ( and getting them tickets ) etc ... i can see a LOT of peeps being realy down over this.

Such a pity that such a TOP event can turn sour 4 so many.

SUCH IS LIFE I SUPPOSE.

Im well chuffed ... but then thats cus i thought i wouldnt be going at all. So for me anything was better than nowt.

I hope it all has a happy out come for you in the end ann marie ... one way, or another. graemlins/friends.gif

Ok Folks,

Semi Good News.

The SECC agreed that this has been a Fiasco, but are blaming the Promoters adn other ticket agencies for having to abide by thier requests.

They also have a rule that you cannot buy the first 3 rows over the internet or by telephone, on the first day of sale. They are reserved for people who wait overnight at the box office, but you are only allowed to buy 2 tickets.

So they have pulled some of the reserve Tickets out and i now have The Middle, Row D. Now i am HAppier, (NOT)!!!

a load of palaver for nothing, why not go back the good old days, a centralised ticket system, first come first served.... Worked for Years, No Hassles.

Heres to a quiter life

Jim

Hi there,

I don't know so good how it goes overthere in England to buy tickets, but the most people know have tickets in Blok A, C and D, and overhere(in holland) it was easy to get them. Is it maybe possible that the front rows in blok B are reserved for family and friends and guests of the band itself, I don't know, the only thing i know was that everything was going in a fast tempo. I hope that everyone who had no tickets yet that they get them with no problems.
