Will Call doesn't exist in the UK. The Box Office will probably open at 6, when the doors open, and I expect you collect your tickets from there. Sometimes venue's box offices are open earlier in the day, and then close about half an hour before doors. You MIGHT be able to collect them if open earlier, but I really couldn't say for sure.
after my little fuck up i was advised to collect tickets from the venue at 6pm ...

Apologies if this has been covered already, but does anyone know the running order? I heard Billy was opening, which seems a bit bizarre. I had assumed he was subbing to Frank, with Beans on Toast opening. Can anyone shed any light on this??

Thanks. For the info about the box office
Billy will be playing right before Frank. I'll eat a baseball cap if this isn't true.

Possibly a slightly random question, but is there going to be a Twitter hashtag for Wembley? It would be great to follow other people's Tweets about the gig.

I'm considering driving, crazy I know, will I have to pay a million pounds to park somewhere nearby?

I have no idea if it's a good idea or not, but tube station car parks seem to be cheap, and it's what we usually do. Though we go the less insane route of not driving too far into London and just getting the tube the rest of the way.

Says it's £4 to park at Wembley Park (for 24 hours as far as I can tell http://www.ncp.co.uk/car-park?cpid=8004 ... %20Station )

Which is only £7 cheaper than in York. Fuck you York.

Tough day Evan? :) I did google, of course, but I was after any insider knowledge from Londoners/people who've been before...

There are three Pols coming across for this & T'Was The Night Before - they need crash space for both nights, if you're familiar / into Couch Surfing I can pass on their details or check the thread on the London Group. Seem top people.

Haha Dougie thanks for posting ;) I decided to register here as well.
Dear FT & Xtra Mile roster fans, I'm coming with 2 of my friends from Poznan (Poland) to see both T'was Night Before Wembley and the Wembley itself. I think it would be awesome to stay with people who go to the concert(s) too. If any of you is London based and could let us share a piece of your flat with us, could be a floor too, i'm not picky. ;) We could obviously split, so if any could host one or two would be great. I'm also a Couchsurfing /Hospitality Club member, username is the same as here - CABALEIRA.

I keep on being optimistic, so please drop me a line if you think you could help anyhow.x


greetz!

Anybody else not bothering with accommodation? After doing my usual and booking the tickets months in advance, then not thinking about somewhere to crash until the week before, I'm considering not bothering. Having a few drinks after the gig, and then heading straight to Kings Cross for the first train back will not only save me a small fortune on a hotel, but also the hassle that comes with the London underground. Just thought I'd see if anyone else was as stupid as me, any fancied a travelling buddy. =P
