the eurostar is almost certainly cheaper and easier.
Shows? All of em.

London to Paris Megabus would be even cheaper if you were willing to be on a coach for 8-9 hours. I've done it before and as long as you can sleep it's not too bad.

I didn't read your other post at first. If you need any help coordinating, let me know! Gare du Nord is pretty close to the venue.

board newbie, but long time fan. I'll be going!!! Was flying out tomorrow and hadn't even thought about who may be playing in Paris (would normally only look at tour dates for UK) so i was very excited when i realised he would be just down the road from me!

See you there if you are going!!!!!! :)

Does it state collect at the venue? I know I've had to collect a ticket from a FNAC store before but I think I'd specified to do that and the particar store. So unless your confirmation email says that then it'll probably be normal on the door stuff.

But this is probably best answered by someone who is actually going to the gig.

Yep, mine says...go to the venue and pick up with confirmation an hour before the show starts. And it says 8pm. So, I think that means doors AND ticket collection are at 7.
Can meet you there if you want? Look for these shoes:

Yeah, so maybe everyone check if you bought through Divan du Monde/TopBillet or FNAC...my tix are at the venue, but I'd hate to screw someone over because they bought theirs differently.

And yay Emmie! Again, check shoes!

Here's what I know: Divan du Monde = Couch World
Google Review says: "La plus grande des petites salles", which means "the largest of the small rooms"
Which tells me there are no couches and that the place is tiny. Hooray!!
