Nice one! Did you get a fan club email as a members only? I am still awaiting for registartion but will get mine tomorrow.

BTW is it all standing on the ground floor or are there reserved seatrs apart from the balcony?

well my good friend from school we've knowneach other for 20years contacted jacky smith and set up the tickets and he received a confirmation email stating everything was processed and done
so it's confirmed.

Me and my wife are going tickets are £39.50 but with processing and paypal comes to 46.50 not a bad price and anyway i wouldn't grumble if they were sixty quid.

As far as i know the tickets are the same as 2005 gig but don't know quote me on that.

Hope you get your tickets WATC and perhaps we can sort out a gettogether with fellow welsh queen fans.

Lucky you and glad you have your tickets. The pre-sale is a joke - no seating available at Cardiff, all tickets £49.50 and an additional 10% charge on top. My mate does not like standing so need seats!! This is taking the piss and am seriously thinking about waiting for general sale on Saturday. Risky I know but the whole process is a f****** shambles. Even some of the dates have been mixed up.

Anyway enjoy the gig. I might not be there this time!!

£60 is a bit much IMHO. You paid £39.50 for standing tickets right?; so why are they asking £49.50 + 10% on pre sales page? Don't know why.

Complete cock up by QOL again. Allocated seats for Cardiff sold out - only standing now. Am quite short so would like a seat. Already seen balcony seats advertised on web at Cardiff for £125 - same every time. Rip off merchants making a fast buck!!

I don't know why they do that to be honest but i just found my ticket from 2005 and i'd paid £49.50 plus sd fee and it was £54.25 so this years tickets are cheaper?? odd eh!, they were from ticketmaster.

I haven't had email from him but i'm guessing that tickets are cheaper this time around for standing but 10pounds more for seating+ extras.

Thanks. The fan club pre sale has now stopped!! It's not 13.00 hrs yet!! Will try again after 13.00. Will have to keep trying.

Yip bought a Cardiff ticket too! Awful venue though and horrendous sound - wish they'd done a Millennium Stadium gig here instead. Still on my head for not wanting to travel away from 'home'!

Hi. We will need to arrange a meet for this gig!!. My mate has backed out as no seats available. Am waiting for general sales mate as the price of ticket including extra charges is £62.50. Too much!

Let me have your email address so that we can contact one another. A good place to meet is the pub opposite the CIA. Hope the queues are shorter this time. I've been to the CIA many times and the last queue for Queen was the longest I've ever seen!

Millenium Stadium gig is too ambitious!! They'd probably only 1/3 fill it!! Not a big enough draw I'm afraid! 2 of my closet friends have backed out this time who are Queen fans. That says something I guess! Should be grateful that they've bothered to come to Wales at all. They know that they are only capable of filling indoor arenas instead of outdoor venues. Better to fill smaller indoor venues than have loads of empty seats at a stadium! The band probably understand this.

I will drag myself along though just to enjoy the music and the show and hear the new songs.

A meet would be good (email address in my profile). However I'm planning this year (as like others friends/family decided not to come this time!!?! -yes I guess that does say alot) to be one of those queuing from early hours to actually get near the front for once.

Have you been asked to pay an extra £20.00 yet. All tickets for Cardiff are £49.50 so you were undercharged. I will get a ticket despite my earler moans! See you there!

I am f****** furious now!!! Queen online are a bunch of wankers as far as I'm concerned. Ordered my ticket only to be told that the order has been cancelled!! I feel like a spare prick at a hen party!!

They are arranging a refund - too bloody right - and advised me to try again or wait until general sales.

F*** them!!

Hiya,

I have finally booked my ticket for Cardiff this morning!!!!. Did it the old-fashioned way if you like! Phoned ticketmaster direct and spoke to a very helpful young lady. Confirmed booking - gave me a confirmation number and telco number if any problems. Nice smooth operation and no messing around. Only had to wait about 5 minutes. Also cheaper as well!! My wait was worth it!

Excellent customer service and pleasant manner.
This is more like it!!! QOL take note!!!

Point is, my friend, we will have to arrange a meeting. Doors open at 6.30 and show starts at 20.00. Let me have your email address so we can sort this. Would imagine that there is no support
so maybe show starts later?

Congrats as well.!!! Enjoy!!

I've just checked Cardiff CIA - General sales - Tickets Not Available for sale! Looks like complete sell out but that's understandable as it's the smallest gig on the tour!!

Phew! lucky I called this morining first thing!!

I did it the old fashioned way! Today I got a bus to Cardiff station, walked to the Cardiff International Arena Box Office and got 2 tickets no problem. That was just after 10am. Got the bus home at 10:50. I paid £49.50 per ticket plus a £10 debit card charge. I am very happy anyway. I missed them in 2005 and haven't forgiven myself yet! Hopefully this will make up for it.

Must be something about us Welsh fans!! Nice bus trip. Will be worth it!! I booked mine by calling Ticketmaster direct as was totally unhappy with pre-sales.
