      What does queuing mean and how do people pay with squid in the Commonwealth?

      The standing room gigs I've been to here (all over America) have had wildly variant line times. Arrived at a gig at 8 AM and there was no one in front of me once, but by 5 AM at a different gig there were 18 people. Was going to try for 5:30 in London since I'll have just flown in and will be utterly fucked in the head, but now I'm questioning if that's early enough. Arrival recommendations?

      Keeps going back and forth saying the highest price seating has sold out and then suddenly making it available again. Have standing anyway, but it's a weird glitch~

      I bought standing for London on the Sunday but am now thinking £75? £75!!!!!??? It just seems an insane price......

      Agree, my New Order tickets were £41 which makes far more sense

      Does anybody else think Ticketmaster are a bunch of dodgy bastards. My mate just tried for New Order tickets and its sold out but Ticketmaster take you straight to their Get me in site, where the tickets are now £71 to £121. How can people buy tickets and get them listed on Get me in within 15 mins or is this Ticketmaster fleecing people?

      The big companies should be doing things to stop scalping, not aiding it, diabolical.

      If ticketmaster doesn´t work/ sold out, try www.eventim.co.uk
      There are still stall standings.

      This site is legit or what? I want to buy them so badly but I'm a student and on top I need to buy a plane tic for 150 quid. Not to mention hotels and food cost. Any advice?

      I wouldn't worry. As of 10:16am London time, there are seats available in all categories on both nights. We've just loaded 4 for both nights into the checkout but, obviously, we wont' be buying them. £73 for 75 minute performance? And people claimed Kate Bush was 'expensive' at £130: FOR A 3 HOUR PERFORMANCE that involved £1million being spent on stage set. Madonna charges £295 but you get all that Cirque De Soleil stuff thrown in, not just someone singing in front of a pub-rock band wearing dodgy v-neck uber-gay fashionista tops and sports slacks.

      I know, just realized that. I have quite the hangover. Can't think properly. Fuck it too expensive to pay 250 quids just for one show and over seas travel

      We attended 3 Kraftwerk shows in 24 hours last week at Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht. Names were printed on tickets and passport/driving licence/photo ID had to be shown to prove the ticket holder was the same person who booked it. Kate Bush did the same at the Eventim venue in London which Morrissey is playing at. It's really very simple to stop touts if the Artist insists on it. Morrissey doesn't, but it's not that big a problem as he's no longer a hot tickets. Plenty of seats available, we've just loaded 6 standing tickets for each night into the basket then released them. If this was a hot gig, the promoters/ticket agencies would hold back tickets claiming it's 'sold out'. If they are releasing 6 tickets per night to one customer 90 minutes after box office opening, you can be sure there is poor demand for these shows. Given the foolishness of playing the 02 Arena a few months ago, this isn't surprising. He would have had a sell out residency of 3/4 nights at Eventim Hammersmith without having already exhausted the fan-base wallet with the O2 gig. He's not that popular. He's not 'hot' at the moment, but a laughing stock over his outbursts, and the tickets are crazy expensive. £73 for 75 minutes onstage is more expensive than Premier League top-notch football, and obviously, not nearly as exciting.

      It's Ticketmaster along with the Promoter and the Artist. They all agree on a stategy. If there's a high initial demand, claim the gig is sold out then flog on their own re-seller sites such as Get Me In at outrageous 'tout' mark-ups. Morrissey has never objected to this when he was a 'hot' ticket. As today shows, he's no longer more than luke-warm, which will affect his ability to demand the same fees next time. £73 for 75 minutes. He's really taking the piss, but with 6 standing tickets for each night available to load into the checkout basket, it's clear the Great British public are wary of being shafted by this clown again.

      It's not a glitch. It's a deliberate attempt to create panic. With the seated areas, they sell the WORST tickets first, to the deluded desperate fans, keeping the best seats to sell to Corporate Customers and on their re-seller tout sites if it's a hot ticket. Morrissey is not 'hot', but he's never objected to colluding with this in the past. Now, he's just another hawker in an overcrowded gig market selling £75 tickets for 75 minutes onstage and then about the same for a couple of tee shirts. But, y'know, he's an icon. And a 'rebel'. Yeah, right.....

      Erm - its New Order tickets I was talking about. BTW - I have my tickets for Morrissey, don't care one jot wether its sold or whether he is a hot ticket or not . He is playing, I want to see him, I have tickets, I am happy with that.

      Yes he does. Promoters offer him a deal, which clearly shows how they arrive at his guaranteed fee. The contract will show the number of seats/standing, the price per ticket in all areas, the total possible box office and the guaranteed sum the promoter offers to Morrissey Inc for signing. Morrissey is a businessman, you are very foolish to imagine he is anything else, but if it helps you to imagine he's a 'rebel', then that's fine. He's selling snake-oil. 75 mins for £75 ? LOL!

      Of course you're happy. You are part of a cult. You will pay what the cult leader demands. You will still be there when only the cult remains interested. By the look of today's opening ticket sales, it seems the British Public really aren't that interested in seeing Morrissey again so soon after his Black Curtain Arena Tour.
