I did pre-order the CD to get the code & then discovered I was away for those dates (gutted!) but out of curiosity logged in for tickets first thing & was offered Row D but not central...& this afternoon I was offered rear stalls CC.
Now I don't believe all the seats from A - CC have sold today for the London gig, otherwise there's going to be many disgruntled people in the fan club who really should have had first dibs.
Pre-sales are becoming a bit of a frustrating joke & I wonder sometimes if its to try & sell less popular seating areas (i.e. no central).
For instance I got tickets for Amos Lee at the same venue, pre sale offered seats in rear stalls at 10am when it opened, I rang the next day when general sale started & got central front stalls in about the 5th row.
To have some many different pre-sales each day is ridiculous & disheartening.
How a situation arose where loyal fan club members were not allowed access at the same time as those who just 'pre-ordered a cd' is very disappointing indeed.
