Just curious as to how quick they sold out around Europe and other places so that I can get an idea of what to expect when the UK dates go on sale this coming week. I heard that in Ireland or somewhere they sold out in 2 minutes. I think I might get mine off Viagogo. They go on sale there even before the 02 Priority tickets.

I'm more worried about this O2 deal, I swear half the tickets will be gone already. Everyone knows someone who is on O2.

85 I think, if you want to be able to see. Cheapest at the top/back are 65. Might be wrong.

Have you joined the live nation website? They usually do a pre-sale there too, skipping the O2 thing.

They're 55 to 85, so standing (or floor seats, depending on how she's doing it) will be 85. Lower tiers will likely be about 65 and upper tier 55.

I wouldn't bother with the 02 Presale. From previous experience, they have the crappy seats. Also, the 02 Presale is being advertised like crazy so I'm hoping a lot of people get tickets that way, meaning they'll be more of a chance to get tickets on general release.

You're really panicking about these Beyonce tickets aren't you? Pre sale only have an allocated number of tickets. Pre sale is always hit and miss. It took six attempts of "no tickets" before I got Fleetwood Mac tickets on the pre sale. I would try pre sale though I got good seats (eventually)

I don't think Live Nation are doing one for her though. I could be wrong but I think it's only o2 this time.

I never pay any attention when the promotors boast about tickets selling out in seconds. Over the years I have managed to buy tickets to 'sold out' shows weeks after release without any problem. I have never been left disappointed.

I got tickets Michael Jacksons 'This Is It', Take Thats 'Progress', The Killers, Rihanna and Spice Girls, despite announcements that the tickets had sold out within seconds. They always add new seats in the weeks before the show - it's just a case of checking often.

How much is standing likely to be? I can't see them charging 85 for it?

Great! Thank you. More than happy to pay that - 85 for standing would be pushing it.

Any advice on the best website to buy from? Usually use ticketmaster but know it has a tendancy to crash at the mos inconvenient of times!

Now that the Saturday has been added, I'm going to try for that

Have you signed up for the Wednesday pre-sale?

Yeah the Saturday looks like a strong contender now too! Means I won't have to take A/L from work. I'll see how I get on. The plan is for me and my sister to each to go on a laptop and get my mum on the phone... Surely at least one of us will manage to get the tickets?! Fingers and toes are firmly crossed.

No I haven't, how do I go about doing that? I signed up to something on the Beyonce website, is that it? Is it always best to go with the pre-sale though? I heard they aren't very good seats, but I don't know if that's true.

PS sorry about the 20 questions! Ha

haha me and my mum are doing the same, was going to go for the Friday but seeing Pink on the Sunday it means I have time to recover haha

Yep, it is the one through the website , I've always have good tickets with pre-sale so I'm hoping this one isn't any different

Atleast then if we don't get them Wednesday, there is the Thursday o2 presale and then general, so three chances overall
