Great thanks Steve, trust you and Lou are well,

 

That's the one, ticket master, was at the Symphony Halls in Brum last year, magnificent venue so don't mind going the extra few miles, especially after giving up altogether the other night,

Symphony Halls booked in Birmingham £147 for 2 in total. Saw her 2006 at The Albert Hall, had me blubbering all the way through, truly a class act :-) see some of you reprobates there.

Me too Lenny .... sitting right behind you in the 4th row, Dale and Mick got seats next to mine too ....

 

Saw her in 2006 but managed to cry most of the way through it, hoping for less tears ( of joy ) this time ....

Luckily managed to get two tickets for Manchester at face value, but unbelievably annoying that as usual most are now being offered for 'resale' at double the price via the same website (Ticketmaster / Get Me In).

 

How they are allowed to take the piss on such a massive scale is absolutely beyond me  :g:

Why wouldn't you?  :D

 

I can't think of any reason whatsoever that I would want to go out of my house and pay money to see Gladys Knight.  If she was playing at our local pub I might pop in, but I certainly wouldn't pay more than a fiver.  30 or 40 years ago maybe.

Anyway it was £55  :)

 

I asked my missus, who likes Gladys Knight, whats the most she'd pay to go see her and she said £25 if someone else paid for it.

I wouldn't pay £55 to see Bowie let alone Gladys.

You want to ask them if they'll book her while she's here  :D

 

You don't get much for a fiver these days

There are still tickets available at £55 for The Sage Gateshead.   If you have not been there previously you are really missing something - I think it is the finest live music venue around, I realise it is in the North East of England but it is truly a wonderful building and a wonderful location with great views over the Tyne  to Newcastle.  Newcastle is a great city to stay over in too.  Passport controls have been relaxed too so you should have no trouble getting in!

got tickets for manchester.. really lookin forward to it

Hi Dave 

I'm sure you will love it saw her in Nottingham Mid 2k and she was superb, no effort to give a spine tingling performance.She was one of my must see artists.

Wouldn't it be great if you could pick your own tracks for her to perform.

Cause she has still got it and puts on a fine show indeed, no-one is asking you Pete to do anything you don't want to mate.

Was going from Christmas 1966 until 2003 mate - they upped the season ticket price by £100 and didn't sign anyone, we were relegated, I said that's enough for me and I haven't been since - will always support them but I won't go again - unless they bring back standing and hooliganism  :lol:
