    Ten Club need to take note of this and stop using big ass fuckers to con there fans into buying stuff off them :evil:


    I agree. Shabby treatment of us for sure.
    Ten Club......take note. You will be hearing from me. :evil:

    im not even sure why i pay ten club membership fess year on year...i thought the whole point was to be able to get into shows like this and not need to give £400 to an ebay tout. :evil:

    It's a serious fucking issue, I mean what is the point of the club and gigs like this, if we can't get a fucking ticket ?
    Who get's 'em ?
    Let's lobby the ten club enquiries email, see what they have to say on the issue. It's extremely unfair. I'm about as pissed off right now as I've been for some time :evil:

    Eddie, you better do something about this, or I'm gonna kick you in the balls mate !!! :twisted: :mrgreen:

    its stupid - if i sold my O2 and Manchester tickets on ebay now and ripped someone off then I could probably affrord to get myself some £400 shep bush tickets off ebay...not that im gonna do that but its all just fucked up. Real fans lose, touts win. go figure.

    So let me get this straight, did anybody get tickets via hmv or have we all been robbed? I can't understand how they can sell out before 9? Surely that breaks some sort of ticketing law, telling people its at 9 then selling them earlier?
  • Shocking, come on Ten Club, let us be lucky in your lottery!

    Just cancelled my order with HMV, took 2 seconds and had it confirmed by email about 3 minutes later. There is no way they are getting any money from me.

    What a farce, never got the email link after buying the album from HMV, rang them at 9am, lots of people in the same boat. Might cancel my pre-order with them and buy it from Amazon!

    I never got the link either. Had HMV tell me at 9:05am "I can only apologise that you never got the email but tickets have already sold out anyway". Just cancelled my order and preying for 10c tickets!
  • DM245926DM245926 Posts: 11
    Cancelled the HMV order, gonna follow another 10cc member and buy Backspacer from Jumbo in Leeds (or Crash, they are cheaper!). Doubt I'll win the lottery (positive thinking), am never doing a pre sale again.

    Congrats to all the lucky people going to the gig!
  • everybody seems to have had the same problem with the HMV link. Here's hoping that were lucky with the 10c lottery. One thing i'm wondering about now is the O2 presale. If tickets go on general sale on Thursday, then their presale should be available now as they should be available 48 hours in advance, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I've sent them an email about this so i'll post any news when i get it.

    So I guess the O2 presale requires you to have an O2 phone contract, yes ?

    Let us know where it is please :|

    Fuck HMV !
    I'm cancelling my order shortly :evil:

    I don't understand how you can blame 10C for you not getting tickets via HMV.
    I said I wasn't even trying for tickets but caved at the last min but no luck, not gonna start bitchin' about 10C though.
    Astoria 20/04/06, Leeds 25/08/06, Prague 22/09/06, Wembley 18/06/07,
    Dusseldorf 21/06/07, Manchester 17/08/09, London 18/08/09, LA 06/10/09, LA 07/10/09.

    Ain't gonna be any middle anymore.

    Yup, I shall be going to either Jumbo or Crash (that was my plan anyway), after I've cancelled my order with HMV.

    The o2 site says priority tickets coming soon. It did exactly the same with the Pixies Brixton shows. There was no pre-sale. Just because it's an o2 venue doesn't guarantee they get a pre-sale for their customers.
    The secret to a happy ending is knowing when to roll the credits
  • jamie ukjamie uk Posts: 3,812
    Ookay, just spoke with a sales advisor. There was a problem or two, they acknowledge, and apologised that tickets are now all sold out !
    There will be more available in the general sale on Thurday, apparently, tho fuck knows what that will be like if the this mornings debacle is anything to go by.

    Okay, just off to cancel my cd order. :cry: :cry: :cry:

    People are quite angry and are looking to blame anyone and everyone for it, I guess.

  • You'll need an O2 sim card. Once you have this and it's active, just do a search for O2 blueroom and enter your mobile number to register. It's easiest to find the gig listing if you click on the academy venues section and select Shepherd's Bush.

    All the point people are making is this.
    Pearl Jam decide to play a special show, shouldn't it be for the benefit of loyal 10c members ? And not let them hang out to dry at the mercy of illegal ticket touts, because they've signed up to some fuck awful corporate agreement with HMV, to try get us all to buy the album early ??

    The 10C is not a separate entity, it is us, me and you and all the other members.
    We are bitching at the band really I suppose, maybe they don't realise quite what happens on this side of it, but what's gone on here this morning sure doesn't seem right and proper to me.

    from the Blueroom website:

    O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
    If you’re on O2 you can get Priority Tickets up to 48 hours before general release to events at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Check out this page for the full list. And when you get to the venue, there’ll be more perks for you

    O2 Blue room now says priority tickets available 23rd July at 9am. Not sure how that is priority as that is when general sale starts. Also, that O2 Blue Room site is dead tricky to work out. Can't ever seem to register blah blah. I think it will just have to be fingers crossed for the lottery. Very frustrating to see those two tickets still sat in my HMV Shopping Basket as if to taunt me.

    If they are acknowledging they f***ed up then they should release more of the general sale tickets to advanced purchasers. God! It used to be so much easier (and more fun) when we used to queue up outside venues all night!

    This gets better.
    In order to get into the show, first I had to pre-order a record 9 weeks in advance from a large international retailer. They didn't come up with the goods, so now I can try again if I have a certain type of mobile phone !! :|

    I can't believe the dudes in the band would be okay with this bull shit, they can't know about it, please tell me they don't know about this whoreing of the band !! :(

    oh scary... 40000 morbidly obese christians wearing fanny packs invading europe is probably the least scariest thing since I watched an edited version of The Care Bears movie in an extremely brightly lit cinema.
  • 1) Priority Tickets from 02 are available on the 23rd - day of general sale (whack!) - on the flip side - tickets will be available from Ticketweb who IMO are a great site for tickets. Trouble is, the volume of people trying to get tickets will probably kill any website (bit like HMV - worldwide sales)

    2) All this anger aimed at HMV - yes they fucked up but they've admitted it and that's it - DONE/FINISHED! Shouldn't have happened, but it did.

    3) There are 3 stages of getting tickets for this, the HMV thing was part 2. All this anger on here, even before the lottery results have been announced...CHILL OUT! Get angry at 9.30 on Thurs!

    4) If you had to - what would you pay on ebay to get to this. I fucking despise touts but for this, i'd pay £200 which looks like it's going to have to be the price to pay if i dont get very very lucky!

    The HMV thing sucks, but there's no point in getting upset about it. It's a small gig, not everyone's gonna get tickets. All we can do is keep going and hope it all works out. There'll undoubtedly be 100s of annoyed people at the end of it, that's just how small gigs are.

    Now to decide whether to try for tickets through O2 or TM. :x
