Of course those areas were never available, there was no demand from the get go. You guys have to learn to deal with non sell outs. Most of the Moz 'sell out' shows are not really sell outs, that another thing you all have to find a way to cope with.

The funny thing is yesterday nobody had learned about the curtained areas, the more you like to pretend it was 'full up to the rafters' the more info you yourselves provide contradicting the fact.

Idiot! Where do you think stage would have been if those seats had have been sold? You simply cannot sell every single seat in the arena

yes it reads better to say you sold 4700 tix out of 7000 allocated than to say you only sold 47oo in 12000 seat arena. with the former you can make a case its packed to the rafters and the cordoned off and curtained areas are for the boxing match.

One thing I will say for this site is that it is an improvement to be able to see the IP codes of the anonymous posters.

Anything posted by: IP Hash: 743bcae8e7 can immediately be dismissed as from the mind of an obvious troll, for example, and doesn`t even need to be read.

As an anon poster I agree with you about the ip

I bet if Guns and Roses were playing Manchester they would have allocated the full 21000.
thats really a pill, sell 14ooo tix in a 21ooo seat arena and claim a sell out LOL

Complete sections covered in BLACK MATERIAL aka the black curtain flattened out over the seats.
more truth to add.

LOL! BtBB, I told you it would be an 'event'. It's just another Maoist propaganda National Cult Convention like the one at the same venue in 2012, designed to try and fool a 'proper' record company into wasting more money re-releasing WPINOYB.

His daft nephew at the front filming to edit out the non-compliant unsold seats.

TTY is now a forlorn delusional version of Pravda.

Yikes. OK I'll take your word for it.
BtBB hasn't made death threats, but he has wished death upon Morrissey on at least one occasion.

I don't think so because as far as I know BtBB has made no death threats, hasn't harassed children who just lost their father to suicide, or called people's work trying to get them fired.
It was doomed from the start because receiving working tax credits to supplement his income being a Morrissey impersonator doesn't go far when he's shopping at Morrissey's favorite stores trying to dress like him. IMO He should have kept his museum job and done the Morrissey gig on the side.

It's all getting rather tedious this. Look, Manchester was packed, simple. Whether that was achieved via free tickets, who cares?! Even if concert halls/arenas aren't full, what does it matter as long as the people in attendance enjoy the shift?

For what it's worth, that was the 30th + time I've seen him since WPINOYB was released, and yes, the setlist is a bit tired, but, it was still a great show and a great day. X

okay - I have to ask - I know it's off topic since it's not about the capacity of the venue :rolleyes: - but there was a Morrissey impersonator who did all of the above?

How could I possibly wish death threats on Morrissey ? That great performer died a very long time ago :( R I P Morrissey we miss you and all that syrupy sentimental shite, but now realise it was all a gimmick so no need to be kind to you anymore ! In fact rot in hell you CrankFraud twunt ! Telling me meat is murder for all those years whilst necking the Dubliner Kerrygold, you horrible little corpse o_O.
There is an awful tribute act doing the rounds at the mo though and their lead singing performer AKA Tosserrey has been courting death and ill health for years in an attempt to shift units. I listened in on them in Tel-Aviv recently :barf:Their sound is like toothache on the ears.
