That used to be the Engineering Wing, where I did my HND and Degree. It saddens me everytime I walk past. Like today.

Whilst operating at my usual pace, I've only just noticed that NMA are playing in Chester the very next night, looks like this might be a good week to gig.

Well, grad school plans fell apart. Seems I can't go to Leeds anyhow.

Leeds tickets arrived today and I've been smiling ever since :D

I might be at the NMA gig as well Swinnow. Are you going to see The Damned in Chester on 17th?

Mine arrived this morning too. I've not been to Leeds for about 10 years, but it's probably worked out cheaper to get there and stay overnight than turn up and try for tickets on the day in Manchester. Will also be at the Damned in Chester.

Sorry, doubt I can get to The Damned, got family stuff on the calendar that night on the Wirral that will be too hard to avoid. :-(

Anyone else having problems with their tickets for Leeds? I know it's been happening at some of the other venues...

So I had this interesting email conversation:

I paid a postage and handling fee of £2.50 and a booking fee of £3.58.
What exactly was I paying for if I now have to collect my tickets?

I demand either:
a) a Refund of £6.08
b) the tickets concerned to be delivered to me as I originally paid for.

Regards

Ticketmaster (for Glasgow) lets you print out your own ticket, though am still paranoid a bit about the venue not accepting it for some reason. Crash were fine as usual for Leeds.

I went to Crash because I try to support independent business!! That ticket arrived ages ago!

Obviously, there was no independent retailer I was aware of for the Ritz, so I ended up usin' Ticketbastard.

:roll:

When I say I went to Crash, I used their website, obv... but still.. posted 10th July!

The annoying thing is Ticketbastard sent me the Rock City ticket around the same time as Crash sent their ticket out.. but the Manchester ticket? Erm, nope.

I thought SeeTickets were bad ergo I didn't use them this time for RC...

*sigh*
