So fucking annoying. I assumed I'd still be fine with standing in a few weeks. Will be pissed if i cannot get standing at o2, although I'm sure I can pick them up nearer time from people who cannot make it.

This is the same with Nottingham. See have sold out of standing but all other ticket agencies are fine. The venue had better have standing left as that's where I'm heading now!

I can see 5 pretty fucking massive tour banners on the page, 4 at the very top. I'm assuming that's not AdSense?

I now have standing tickets for the Notts gig. A bit annoyed that the arena charged me a booking fee despite going in person and paying in cash. Luckily Rock City box office didn't when I went there, I'd have been annoyed if they had charged fees after I got ambushed by little kids waving Gruffalos on sticks on the way.

Thank you, unfortunately it's not that i haven't been able to get them (or even that i have tried), I am moving house and jobs in the next 3 months, so I have no postal address that I can use. I could use folks or whatnot, but i know i'll totally forget in lead up that I don't have tickets in hand. Will revisit when I have a fixed abode, either residentially or professionally!

OK, stupid question, I acknowledge.

The tour kits. Do you need to buy a ticket in addition to them, or do them come with a ticket 'built in'?

Thanks Pete. I read the blurb about four times and still didn't notice the capitalised bit.

It's great to get that kind of take on it all. I am still shocked how people react over things like this. For a long time I didn't believe it happened - but I then saw some of the posts on Franks FB page and just thought you utter twats.

When Frank did the interview on XFM with John Kennedy - I think he hit the nail on the head in terms of wanting to push himself and try new things - why the hell not. Frank is currently on the crest of an amazing high (hopefully it will continue - but I think we all know in this industry most people get that moment to shine before people become less interested) and doing arenas must be an amazing thing to look forward to.

Nigels points on the cost of the tickets was also well put across ... I paid £50 to see Lionel Ritchie in the same venue - but then again he did have a 14 piece band, stage set and lasers - so Frank .... you got a lot to live up to ;)
