13/06/20 Middlesbrough Riverside Stadium (Supporting The Killers)

Well, I guess I could brave Middlesboro for this.

When I first saw this poster I thought it was the Killers, Manics, Blossoms and Sam Fender on the same bill. Now that would have been quite a line up!

Where's Middlesboro?

Oh! You both mean Middlesbrough I think.

I'm not 100% sure but it may have been spelled incorrectly at one stage during this short thread.

Where's Middlesbrough? Amongst the Smog!

Got tix for this one. May even stay for Killers!

Well I was on line when the countdown reached zero, immediately clicked search (both on ticketmaster and seetickets), then waited. Seven minutes later results came up to say it was sold out :-(

This is why it's so much better not following popular bands!

Would I have been better doing the buy the album pre-sale thing. Out of curiosity how many of the tickets were snapped up on Wednesday and how many were left on Friday?

No idea what the pre-sale allocation was, but there were actually two separate allocations on Wednesday; one through Ticketmaster for those who pre-ordered the album (although no purchase was necessary and you could just sign up to their mailing list to receive a code) and one through GigsandTours for historic fan club members (I say historic, as the fan club doesn't exist anymore, but they still do pre-sales for anyone who was a member). Plus there was an O2 priority pre-sale on Thursday for some venues. As far as I know the pre-sales on Wednesday pretty much sold out, not sure about the O2 one though as I didn't use it.

We got what we wanted on Wednesday, but I did keep an eye on things this morning and they all sold pretty fast. Extra dates in London and Dublin were added, but obviously that doesn't help anyone wanting to see the Manics. Of course there are loads on the secondary sites for stupid money and don't even get me started on Ticketmaster's 'platinum' tickets, which change value depending on demand :rolleyes:

I would say keep an eye on Twickets though, especially nearer the time if nothing turns up before then. GigsandTours now officially let you re-sell their tickets through Twickets, so some are bound to pop up on there.

It would appear that Ticketmaster have quietly changed their T&C's and will only refund tickets if a gig is cancelled rather that if it is postponed/rescheduled:evil:

Not sure what the legal position is in the UK if tickets were purchased under the old T&C's, which mine were for this gig. Even if the gig is rescheduled, would the Manics be playing??

Lee 14-04-2020 12:15

I think they’re trying it on in the hope that people take it on the chin. Their T&Cs do not supersede those of the regulatory authorities.

I would be pointing them towards the Consumer Goods Act as you’re entitled to a refund if you can’t make (or don’t want to go to) the rescheduled gig.

RESCHEDULED TO THURSDAY 10TH JUNE 2021

I managed to get tickets for this eventually at some random point in the past two years. So what are we expecting from the set - another greatest hits fest as per the Guns n Roses gigs a few years back or still plenty of TUVL along with possibly a KYE rarity or two?

I remember before gig postponed they had a set list of covers they were intending to do for Green Day.
I imagine they'll be going at it as Best Support Act Money Can Buy. I'm predicting hits and more covers
The festival date after the support slots might be more curio friendly.
Have a great time if anyone else gets to see them!
I'm not going, but always love the updates

Full report tomorrow but I suspect the main talking point will be Sean's shirt.
