Hi, just bought tickets for Birmingham and was hoping someone might be able to help me out (first time seeing Q+PR and probably the biggest gig I've been to..)

I've bought standing tickets, but noticed that at at least Birmingham and Cardiff the seated tickets have sold out already while as far as I can see there are plenty of standing tickets left.
Do a lot of people know something I don't? (Feeling slightly paranoid now!)

I assume with standing tickets that your chances of getting near the front depend on how early you get there? Are there any people who have been before that would be willing to advise how early I need to be there?

Finally (!) - Camera policy?
Is there an official Queen policy on taking cameras to the concerts, or does it depend on the venue? I've always been OK at gigs I've been to before but I know some places don't like it..

Thanks so much

thanks! When I said camera I meant photos rather than video anyway.
Sorry to be pain but when you say early, how early is early? First thing in the morning, lunchtime? - im assuming the concert itself will be in the evening?
Thanks again

In most cases it's sufficient if you get there just a couple of hours before the show. Say, around 5-6 pm. There will be some dozens of people already but you will still be able to get to second or third "row" if you have a standing ticket.

I went to Birmingham the last time - seating. There were ppl standing, but a lot of free space. Filled up near the start of the concert but for the whole build up you had aroun 50 people standing and a whole arena looking at them...hell!!

:)
Sounds fun!
I had visions of having to be there first thing in the morning or ending up at the back!
