    great , more chances in the future! i understand the complains but some of you seems to just like to complain for the lack of it
    Sure. But I am really amazed how many things go wrong this time. Buying via 10c always came with down-sides in the past: Paying more than normal tickets (due to converion rates), having to buy two, having to collect them on the day of the concert. But those were clearly communicated and were outweighted by the plus-sides: getting tickets easy and for the best tickets in the house.

    Things changed and I understand that. But the lack of communication from 10c about this is frustrating.

    But to end on a positive note: the concerts will be great and I am happy that I scored GA tickets for both nights via 10c.

    They did get pretty screwed over with the seat locations in Berlin. You have to give them that at least.

    There's not really a lot for 10C to communicate, other than when the pre-sale was taking place. They've contracted it out to Ticketmaster, so everything else isn't really a 10C issue any more. 

    You'll have an amazing time, Berlin is a great city.

    Well, the location of the 10c-seats and the question of early entry is something 10c should communicate about, since those are / were the perks of the membership. (Actually, 10c said about the 10c-seats, that those won’t be view obstructed. We will know in July about that)

    Also 10c should care if their business partner lies about the existence of additional resale-fees. 

    But you are right about Berlin, will be my first 10/11th time seeing them there.

    I've put two front standing tickets for London up for resale. I'm still going, but two mates have bailed! 
    Are they tenclub bought ones? I am going to be in the market for one ticket and just worried that they might add early entry still - so i want to buy one 10c bought one just in case. I know its unlikely 
    Sorry, just saw this. They sold pretty quickly, but no they were regular sale tickets as I couldn't find any front standing through 10c

    I emailed 10c to ask about early entry and they just replied with this:

    Hello Ross,
     
    Thanks for emailing the Ten Club!
     
    We don't have any answers on early entry for any of the venues yet. Once the show date is closer, you will receive an email with what you need to know to attend the show, which will include any early access information.
     
    Thank you,

    Got a response from Ticketmaster Germany about the additional re-sale fees: unfortunately the information about no additional fees the re-seller and buyer was a mistake. There are no additional fees only for the re-seller, they will correct the info asap.

    Ah, well.

    I actually signed up to post the comment.  Pearl Jam are my favourite band after Nirvana (my true musical love along with the Beatles); this might be a long rambling post and I apologise in advance.

    In terms of concert history, I first got to see PJ at Manchester Arena in 2000, they never seemed to play too many shows in the UK. It was incredible and I bought the associated CD (what other band does that!); next gig was their headlining set at Leeds Festival in 2006 (which I think was their first festival performance since Roskilde); this was truly amazing and Elderly Woman was a breath-taking highlight. I was right near the front and saw first hand how caring and empathetic Eddie is.

    Next time was London Hyde Park in 2010; a legendary gig (they are popular in the UK you know); the whole gig is on YouTube if you care to indulge yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCO6dZgigCY&t=3538s

    Then was 2014 in Milton Keynes, I’ve read on here this concert was priced too high and was half empty, I remember it being an amazing a show and pretty full (was a bad location to get back home though); never seen such an inadequate train station so packed.

    The subsequent gig was not until the recent Hyde Park gig in 2022; I only went on the Saturday due to work commitments, and it was such an amazing atmosphere.  Johnny Marr was great; the Stereophonics played their hits; the weather was scorching (for England): Baba O’Riley at the end was a memory for life.

    I also went to the Tottenham Stadium last year for the RHCP gig.  I’m not a massive Chili Peppers fan but the gig fell on my birthday, I was in block 304 and it cost me & a friend £1200 for our two tickets, looking at the comparative price for the PJ gig you can get the same seat for £157. Now I know they’ve massively overpriced this European tour and the poor sales clearly reflect that.  However, if you bought those seats for that price honestly it is a steal.  The Spurs stadium is brand new & amazing, you would be in the hospitality section with easy access to a bar and first-class facilities, I recall the sound quality for the show being ok too.  In terms of seeing Pearl Jam over RHCP, you also get to see one of the most underrated guitarists in Mike McCready play his Strat (I’m a massive guitar nerd; anyone bought his signature model?) as opposed to the most overrated Strat player ever in John Frusciante.  For the PJ concert I’ve incidentaly paid £1100 for two hospitality tickets with food and unlimted drink included and we’re in the Tunnel Club on the halfway line (block 001); I honestly thought getting tickets would be tough so opted for hospitality in advance of them going on sale, I should've waited looking back. It should still be a great day regardless we’re going to the new Gibson Shop in Oxford Street, then further guitar shopping in Denmark Street prior to heading to the gig for many drinks and PJ, I can’t wait!

    I hope they sort this concert out though, as I don’t want to see them in a half empty stadium with the stage near the halfway line. Looking at the Ticketmaster website today here are still thousands of unsold seats.  Ticketmaster need to drop the South Stand tickets to circa £50 and hope the damage isn’t already done with demand for the show.  Playing the same day as Green Day at Wembley and on Glastonbury weekend is a scheduling shocker.  I’m seeing Foo Fighters on the Thursday in Birmingham, and a lot of my friends couldn’t do both gigs due to family commitments/money and those shows are two days apart!  I also nearly bought tickets for Green Day prior to the PJ tour being announced as I love their new album and Dookie was one of the albums of my youth. So can imagine a lot of UK based PJ fans already had tickets for Green Day.

    A couple of side notes to bear in mind for those attending the Tottenham Stadium; it is in the middle of nowhere in North London; my advice is to get the overground train from Liverpool Street to White Hart Lane as traffic is a nightmare heading there from central London and the tube station is quite a distance.

    Also why do Pearl Jam never play Birmingham (my hometown); we’re England’s 2nd city not Manchester, the last time Pearl Jam played Birmingham was 1992 in a tiny city centre bar!  If they played Birmingham arena, I suspect it would already be sold out even at £160 a ticket!

    Yeah weird they don't play Brum. 2 big decent arenas there. Middle of the country. Far preferable to London really. Guess it's not so good for air traffic.

    Do any of you have any idea why tickets in London have already been taken off sale and subsequently reduced in price several times while in Barcelona nothing is happening at all and tickets in level 2 for example, still cost €165? The seating plan for the second night still looks very depressing.

    They've only dropped the prices a couple of times in the back (South) stand, and they are still way above what they will need to be to sell IMO. They've pulled and reinstated blocks several times, at the same prices, to try and increase demand/FOMO by making it appear there are less tickets available.
