    Sorry mate, cant help, but I understand your problem. Bloody touts, somebody needs to put a stop to them. Ebay could restrict sales of items like tickets, as this makes it all too easy for them to shift their ill gotten gains.

    Surely promoters could do something to stop this happening using some form of identity check, with a demand that unused tickets could be returned for a refund. Im not talking about small gigs, just the main players, Metallica, Radiohead et al. At 30 quid a pop, there must be something. :mad:

    Best of luck on your search.

    ......................d'you reckon if we ignore them they'll go away :suicide:

    I do agree with the nightmare of Ebay ticket touts though. I need another couple of Strokes tickets but they're going on Ebay at £130/pair (face value £56/pair). Disgraceful.

    CrispyXUK --

    If you're not too far from the venue, I'd chance it on the night. If you leave it late enough, you should be able to get one off a tout for a fairly reasonable price PROVIDING they're not doing a roaring trade that night.

    Touts were selling tickets for the smaller shows (Manchester Apollo, in this case) for approx £30 late on in the evening.

    Yeah go down on the night mate, you'll get a tickit for sure, at a good price. Some people go down with extra tickets because when friends drop out and stuff.

    And the touts start shifting them for a lot less as it starts filling out. Get general access though. More then likely be that way anyhow

    found a place selling seated tickets for £31, do you think I could get a swap down there for standing?

    I'm around an hour away froms earls court, so chancing it would not be fun if It went wrong, especially on a Thursday or Wednesday night :p
