Lol, not going to this one. Booked a little break away, due back in Manchester about 20 minutes after the gig finishes. Oops. Might do Leeds..

There's a whole load of lower tier seats left for Manchester on Ticketmaster - they aren't singles either as I tested a few and could get multiples on the best ones like Block 102. Not saying it won't be packed by go-live but it won't be rammed on the lower decks.

That's interesting. When I was looking at getting a seat all that was being offered were the blocks at the back so I don't know what's happened there. I wondered where all the tickets had gone as I was looking on the day they went on general sale. Seetickets and Ticketmaster were just offering the back blocks

I'm coming over from Canada for three dates of RIF, this being the first. My ticket was actually sent properly too! See you in the queue...

Also, best pub(s) to spend the hours pre-gig? Any advice, Mancunians? We want good beer and good music
Post-gig will be lovely as we're attending a Manic Street Mania Indie Disco!

Suggest TROF in the Northern Quarter (not too far from the Arena)

Glad I double checked the rules about bags- there are plenty that I've never seen even in airports, having your hands free is a no go unless you have a drawstring style bag the same as the ones that they sell. No cloakroom.

This may all be standard for arenas these days, its ages since I went to a venue anywhere near this size, but for anyone who is travelling it might be useful to know.

Indeed, useful information.

I guess they're banning all backpacks so as not to have to argue about large or small. It would be useful to have a maximum size for other bags tho. Subject to interpretation otherwise.
