Yes, I thought at first they’d ask for an NHS email address and send a code or something. But some contractors like cleaners perhaps may not have the NHS email, and I am glad that the policy does state that cleaners, porters etc are included as they do an essential job and are often forgotten about.

I just listened to the JDB interview that MSPpedia put up and he says nothing about hospital staff only, just NHS workers, so that settles it for me :)

Yeah, there's no way that was the band's idea. Good luck tomorrow, just not at my expense :p

Haha! Thanks, good luck to you too. Fingers crossed we’ll both be there! :)

Good on ya boys! Knew they would come up with something like this! ❤

Brilliant gesture.

I actually work in the NHS (albeit as an admin in a mental health trust) but I'm planning on starting teacher training in September - fingers crossed! - which means I won't be able to take that Friday off. However, we're planning on doing the Saturday and making a weekend of it in Cardiff. Any idea how much tickets will cost?

Anaconda Vice 10-04-2020 09:01

I actually created a Ticketmaster account to get tickets for the 2nd paid night.

I feel dirty even touching Ticketmaster but it seems like that's the only option I have...

From Ticketmaster:

Tickets will be limited to 2 per person (eligible NHS staff members and one guest) and will be available from 7pm on Friday 10th April 2020. Tickets in excess of 2 will be cancelled.

Ticket applications must only be made by the NHS member of staff who must bring their valid NHS or Primary Care Trust I.D card (original format, no photocopies) to the show, as ticket checks will be in operation. All tickets will carry the name of the person who made the booking, and this must match the name that is on the NHS or Primary Care Trust I.D card or admission will be refused. The guest of the eligible NHS staff member will need to be present and enter the venue at the same time.

Those eligible for tickets will be all NHS staff that work within NHS hospitals in the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners. Any staff that work within the hospital will be eligible to apply for tickets. Eligible NHS staff members are entitled to bring one guest with them but will need two tickets (one for them and one for their guest). If you secure tickets in error as you are not NHS staff, please contact the ticket provider to arrange cancellation of those tickets. If you secure tickets and find that you are unable to attend, please contact the ticket provider to arrange cancellation of these tickets, to enable the tickets to be available to other NHS staff.

For the free tickets, will Ticketmaster still charge £12 for bugger all?

Are they? Cheeky twats. Just seen that they're still listing tickets for the Killers supports in June. Piss take that, as if they've not been cancelled yet.

everlasting 10-04-2020 16:01

So just to confirm, you HAVE to work for the NHS who work IN a hospital, it doesn't include any other kind of carers or support workers, which I am. Poo!
Ah well, hope all who go have a good time. I'll wait until they do a new tour in 2021 I guess.

blackflower 10-04-2020 16:17

Do you work for the NHS everlasting? I can’t see them turning away anyone with an NHS ID badge!

blackflower 10-04-2020 18:09

YES! I'm going to both nights! AND proof that this is for all NHS and not just hospital staff, this is the first line of the terms and conditions:

"This event is a thank you to all NHS and auxiliary staff. Tickets are available for staff only, including but not limited to doctors, nurses, porters, cleaners, support workers. Please respect this, ID checks will be in place"

:D

Despite Ticketmaster throwing me out 3 times after getting tix in basket, managed to get tix for the 5th. Eating cheesecake to calm down!!

Anaconda Vice 10-04-2020 18:15

Going!

Is it me or are Manics tickets surprisingly cheap for arena gigs?

Just over 35 quid for this one - think Cardiff 2018 (RIF tour) was around 40-ish...

sculptureofabloke 10-04-2020 18:17

Sorted for both nights, job's a good un. Expected the second night to be a bit pricier, cheaper than the last tour. Chuffed with these anyway, hope you managed to get tickets Everlasting and Blackflower.

No booking fee or owt on the free ones either, Routine Builder.
