Bit underwhelmed to be honest.

I saw W Of the W at the 02 in 2014,Jason and Carrie starred, it's quite exciting with the special effects.Only thing i didn't like was the hologram of Liam Neeson his voice was so loud it distorted,would have preferred someone at the edge of stage narrating.

Very slow this year, but to add to

Bryan Ferry  27 April Oxford

 

British Sea Power  12 Feb  Reading

A late decision, and most enjoyable.

If you don't walk out dancing and smiling from ear to ear something maybe wrong with you. :P

Best stage show I've seen since U2 360 Tour.

Yes, I knew why it was postponed and I agree.

Not right behind, just enough angle to see the stage and video screen down the middle, I assume it will be like the previous arena shows. I didn't want to pay too much so it was that or nothing.

I really want to go to the STL show, but I'm finding it hard to pull the trigger on $350.00 good seat and or $200.00 for a bad seat. All the cheap ones are gone.

I told myself I would wait to see where the market will take these tickets too. But it looks as that is the market. Outrageous!!!! May 4th is coming pretty quickly. Plus I don't like that it's the second show into this tour. I would like to see and read a handful of reviews before spending 200-350.

unfortunately it seems the way now it is outrageous but the market seems to bear the prices. I guess if you live close enough to the venue go on the night and see what's available just before the show?

I only did it once .... Wembley 1985 brought a ticket outside for £14.50 (less than $20 at the current exchange rate though it may well have been nearer $30 then) ... I had been on the 4th and just had to go again. :)

The bands social media (mainly Facebook) plus registering with and checking new on sales on the ticket agencies (ticketline, seetickets, ticketmaster, eventim etc). Beatthetouts on twitter is also useful.

I know it, but not that well. Not sure they’ve announced the new cast yet, but the promo email made it sound like it was gonna be a major production, so looking forward to it.

I saw this a few years back in Cardiff.  It was stunning.  Full orchestra (ulla dub ulla strings)and rock band (Black Smoke Band) with Jeff conducting.  It had a load of folks from the original record.  I don't think they're there this time, and it's Liam Neeson narrating.

 

I'll be there for one of the dates.  can't remember which one.

 

EDIT.  Sorry Mark, missed you're previous post with the extra info.
