Yh not as good as perhaps I could of got on Wednesday....I got row Q...but two seats together i'm reasonably happy with that, I guess. However, £140 is a bit steep, but he is playing in the London west end theatre district....where stalls tickets tend to be around the same price or more (Sometimes £100 a ticket!)

I think the venue has set the price, rather than Damien.

No luck for me... tried for the full half hour... Ticketmaster site still shows them as available, but can't find them when I try for them... their twitter says sold out long ago... Damien's site does say sold out. Oh well.

Is Damien playing London again on St. Patrick's Day next year? Just saw a report on it...

Edit: The mirror mixed up Rice and Dempsey. Amateurs.

I'm almost positive he'll do a proper full out tour next year...not sure it'll be an arena tour like the 9 tour....but defo more shows to match demand, hopefully

Oh, I'd say we'll be fed up of him soon

And fair play to Damien's team for sorting the problems that were there for the pre-sale. This time all went smoothly, apart from TicketMaster not mentioning that it had sold out on their sale page... but much improved from earlier in the week.

That's strange. News sites report that Amsterdam was sold out in 5 minutes.

Sorry to hear that Wheels!
But surely Damien should just give you a ticket...

Brooklyn tickets appear to be on-sale at noon, despite what Damien's site says.

Shockingly, I was able to pull up tickets to the first show at The Box on 10/16. The only option for number of tickets was 1.

Yes. I have a confirmation number, but haven't received the confirmation email yet ( even though my son got his instantly).

Nevermind- the confirmation email came through after half an hour.

Hey Everyone, quick question. I have two tickets to the Brooklyn show. Even if I wanted to exchange with someone who has 2 tickets to the Saturday Box show, is it possible? I ask because Brooklyn gets tickets in the mail, but The Box is will call.

Well.... I ended up getting only one to the Saturday show.. same here with only the option of selecting 1 ticket.

I have the same situation as Jonboy... I have two extra tickets to Brooklyn. Hell, I will trade those two tickets for 1 ticket to the Saturday Box show

Had the option for 1 ticket for Sat night, and it tried reserving for at least 15 seconds, then I got the dreaded we're sorry message.

same for me, but when it was taking so long for reserving, I kinda thought I was not gonna get thru, cos there were too many people trying...

lots of tix for the Warsaw show on ebay already, also at stubhub, but none for the Box

I'm not sure if trades are possible. The confirmation email says, "RESALE INVALIDATES TICKET," plus the will call thing. Hopefully someone will have a spare and go with the people who need tickets. I only got one myself.

I'm wondering if I should just call them right away at noon or if I should try Ticket Web again. Thoughts? What experiences did you guys have?
I had the same problem Topspin - there was no pulldown or text field to enter the number of tickets I wanted. I was able to enter the password and choose a mail option but couldn't select tix, so I'd get an error message. This happened on both my husband's and my laptops.

I think I'm going to try again on my old laptop in today's general sale. I've tried clearing my cache, but something is screwy with that ticketweb page.
