    This may be seen by some as scraping the barrel, but given that we have had a 'Post your collection' thread, I thought I would start a 'Post your ticket collection' thread.

    To get the ball rolling (or not, as the case may be), here is my humble ticket collection.

    The centrepiece is a little montage I put together following the April / May Ringleader dates (the tickets in the montage are Salford Lowry, Llandudno, Manchester Apollo, Manchester Opera House, Manchester Bridgewater Hall & Liverpool Philharmonic). The picture at the centre of the montage is a picture I found at www.thereisalight.co.uk that was taken by one of the site's webmasters and which shows me just seconds away from shaking Moz's hand. If that person visits this site, you have no idea how grateful I am to you for taking that photo!

    The tickets surrounding the montage are: Liverpool Royal Court (1985), Liverpool Empire (1991), MEN Arena (2004), Blackpool Empress Ballroom (2004), Liverpool Royal Court (2004), Preston Guildhall (2004), Birmingham NIA Arena (2004), Birmingham NIA Arena (2006), Manchester GMEX (Friday), Manchester GMEX (Saturday).

    P.S. My wife has finally relented and has allowed me to hang the Ringleader tour montage right above our marital bed!

    Here's my very small collection. This was my first tour. I went to Dundee and Glasgow. Hopefully I can add to it in the future :)

    I recently found my huge collection of ticket stubs from the last 15yrs. Can't believe I actually went to all those shows. Saw Morrissey 3 times, wish he would have done a proper tour of the US.

    this page shows the Ally Pally tix (blurred sorry) but these were the best tix of the tour, also it's one of the gigs we didn't go to, see the tix are intact.

    I do like the post with The Smiths ticket stub but all of them are nice. Makes me sad that I didn't take better care of the ticket stubs I have :(

    I wasn't supposed to be going to brum from london, but because i was staying with a friend there ready for wembley, i had to go there first... if i'd gone to brum first i'dve been alright, although i may have been stranded there overnight.

    oh well... next time, i am already (trying) to save for the next tour.
    *pretends she didnt put an IOU for £80 in her fund the other day after nabbing some cash from it*
