The people you sell them too will have to meet up with you at the venue then, seeing as you 'the Booker' will be needed to show ID etc?...

That's the plan. My "fee" will be a pint of beer before the show.

I know a tout's mind works differently to mine but I wouldn't be able to charge someone hundreds of pounds over face value and then sit next to them throughout the entire show.

[quote=Glawster2002;71834862]They will.

Nothing to stop someone buying four, using one themselves and then selling the other three. That's what people did when Iron Maiden played the O2 last August.

If I can get a ticket legitimately I'll be there, if not I'm not lining the touts pocket, and I include "re-sale" sites in the word tout.[/QUOTE]


I can see your point, I really can, and I sort of agree with you, however.............in the autumn of last year, my own musical hero Danny Elfman - who does the scores for many of Tim Burton's movies, most memorably Edward Scissorhands (the most beautiful music I have ever heard), The Corpse Bride, one of the Batman films, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the list goes on and on!!! - the man's a genius!) - came to London for a concert of his music at the Royal Albert Hall. A full symphony orchestra played selections of his breathtaking music, while scenes from the films were projected onto a huge screen. The place was packed with Elfman/Burton fans, and when Danny Elfman himself appeared on stage, the whole place went wild, and Mr Elfman seemed totally overwhelmed.

The point being...................the concert sold out before I could get tickets from the Royal Albert Hall (50 each) so I bought a pair on eBay for 150 each. Obviously, I would have preferred to get them for 50. However, having been to the concert, I can say quite truthfully that I would happily have paid 1000 per ticket, rather than have missed what was literally the best evening of my life.

So yes, I do see what you mean, but if it's something you desperately want to see, whose memory you'll treasure forever, I think you sometimes have to be pragmatic about it (if you can afford it, of course.)

Just my opinion, anyway.

With scumbags like you planning on reselling tickets, I am so pleased I have two chances at buying them properly. I hope your plan fails massively...if you aren't just on some nasty little wind-up, that is.

Did you read my post?

I said IF I'm left with any tickets (which is unlikely) then I will sell them on at face value and no more.

I'm not looking to make any profit and I would want any spare tickets to go to a proper fan. I would meet them before the show and go in with them. I despise touting as much as anyone.

The way I look at it I will be buying up my full allocation to keep them out of the hands of the touts

She did always say that she wanted to perform before 'she was past it.'

Amazing. I fear I won't get tickets because of the bandwagon jumpers who don't care about her or her music, just the buzz about this being a big thing in music.

Says who? Judging from the excitement this news has generated you are in a tiny minority.

The way you look at is is wrong. You are every bit as bad as the touts. Wny not just get the number of tickets you personally need and let everyone else buy their tickets the official way? It makes no sense.

Thanks - how do these ticket agencies work online. Can you select best available or do you have to choose a price band first and if so which one would you get. Guess it's going to be like a 1/20 chance of getting tix even if you refresh non stop.

This news is so exciting - wonder just how big the demand will be. I do remember when Aerial came out to so much fanfare and discussion being her first album after 12 years and only made no.3 in the charts. So her influence and popularity is perhaps overstated. And I'm saying this in a hopeful way as I want tickets...

I think trying to get tickets, especially in the general sale, will be utter madness. I'm not looking forward to it at all actually. I think I'll only feel true excitement once I've secured my place.

At least Kate obviously cares deeply for her real fans and is doing everything in her power to trying and stop arsehole touts and people like Finny Skeleta from ruining things. She is such a wonderful person and many could do with taking a leaf out of her book when it comes to how to treat others.

How about because at such short notice and with what is likely to be a very short window of opportunity I don't know how many I am going to need?

I'm definitely going, I've got two probables and two maybes...that's five already, I can only buy four at a time. If the two maybes both become definites then I'm short one. If they both say no then I've got one left over.

If it was the type of gig where you could just rock up on the day and pay on the door then I'd let everyone fend for themselves. However, seeing as the pre-sale could be the best chance of getting tickets everyone will be relying on me.

So I will be buying four tickets. Best case scenario is three of my friends want tickets. Worst case scenario is four of them want tickets. Other scenario is two of them want tickets and I'm left with one which I will sell on to another Kate Bush fan for the exact amount of money I paid for it in the first place.

Considering I could probably make a very hefty profit on a ticket but I refuse to do so I fail to see what is so reprehensible about what I may do.

I see no issue with what your doing your selling the one ticket which may or may not be spare to another fan for no extra cost. It's fair and pragmatic as opposed to touts who are greedy money grabbers.

Thanks, that's how I was hoping it would come across. I'm a bit surprised that Jane has taken so much offence.

Music is much more important to me than money. As far as I'm concerned money is just something that helps you get more music.

Maybe I'm severely misunderstanding Finny, in which case I truly and sincerely apologise for an unfair attack. I'm just REALLY sensitive to touting or anything that resembles it in any way, is all.

Another example of London-centric Britain.
Because no other country gives their captial city any importance ever, no Sir. The chip so many on DS have on their shoulder towards London is unbelievable. Where is that rolling eye smilie when you need it?
