    Managed to get some tickets, rang at 9am when box office opened.

    It seems the promoter has only released row 'F' back, for the hard-core!

    I guess the first few rows are reserved for family and friends, TV people.

    See you there!

    Many thanks for the heads up, Thomas !! :headbang: :headbang:

    Booked my seat - Row F Seat 19 (opposite Quinny). I was told Row F is the front row. The venue could not confirm the date - but said it was either Friday 26th Jan or Saturday 27th Jan.

    Believe Paxo, Sammi and Lionheart747 have also managed to get seats in the front row.

    Cheers,

    Goss.

    I admit to being a little confused this morning, after ordering the tickets. I looked at the seating plan (see link)

    http://www.spinsheffield.com/getpdf.php?id=8


    It says clearly the stall rows start with rows AA then BB then rows A, B, C etc this means that there are still 200 plus seats in front of row F.

    I see three possible scenarios –


    1. Those seats in front are reserved for family, friends, TV staff etc.

    2. They are going to take some seats out to have some sort of stage walkway, or bring the main stage further forward?

    3. The seats in front of row F will go on main sale tomorrow!! If that is the case I will be F**KING PI**ED OFF!!:err: :puke:


    Apart from some confusion with the seats, I'm really looking foward to it.:headbang:

    Fingers - I think our tickets are right next to you! And we are not far from you Saxonmckenz either, think we are in F32,33,34.

    The bloke on the phone did say that this was the front row for this gig, so I don't think they are selling rows in front of row F tomorrow. And there shouldn't be any family/friends/tv people in front of us either, otherwise it isn't the front row! We will soon find out!

    Did anyone get asked the password? I didn't!

    Same here a rang up this morning bang on 9am asked for tickets front row if possible, and i was told row f, i could not believe it, What happened to the message on the saxon site from thomas it should of said bullshit below it.

    I thought us fans exp the ones on this message board where felt like we had been put first for a change but no way, dont get me wrong im glad i got tickets but the message did not say, and i was told this by the person i was ordering the tickets of that the promoter had given the first 5 rows of to who ever.

    so promter first, then us fans second, i could understand it the promoter giving away a few tickets but 5 fuckin rows of em jesus.o_O

    The front seats are reserved for the hard-core fans the band made at the pub gig the other week!

    Dunno where my seats are, somewhere in the middle I believe. Don't care, I'm going, that's all I need to know!

    How many of you gave the password? I didn't, they never asked for it. Perhaps those magic seats were for those who gave the password....

    I mentioned the password when the bloke said the gigs not confirmed yet, but he seemed oblivious.

    Perhaps they had the documentary film crew at the ticket office and were recording us booking tickets and saying "you see I said they were GULLIBLE there's another one banging on about a secret password LIONHEART" :lol:

    Look we've all moaned about not getting any info. ? Now we get info. we are still moaning. :mad:

    This info. has resulted in us all getting a "heads up" for what is near as damn it a Saxon homecoming gig (and I do recall a few gripes about them not playing Barnsley or Sheffield on here in the past). And if i'm not mistaken this is possibly, their biggest solo headlining gig in the UK since the "Destiny" tour. (sorry for mentioning that word/album/tour Wilks).

    Lets just stop worrying whether the tickets we have got are front row or not. Face up to it without any info. we would have ended up with much much worse tickets and that would have really p*ssed us off :mad:

    Finally lets look forward to a top night out with our fave band, lets celebrate the fact as well that without this documentary (which I was as twitchy about as everyone) this gig wouldn't have happened and we would have had to wait 'till Feb / March to see the boys LIVE :kickass:

    Looking forward to seeing a few of you off here for some beers and some pre-gig shenanigans.

    SEE YOU DOWN THE FRONT (or not as the case maybe :lol: )

    RANT OVER

    Go to Short Break Holidays - Superbreak they generally have good deals on all levels of hotels, I'm thinking of booking the Hotel Bristol, near the quayside quarter as its cheaper than the Travel Inn (cheaper parking as well) and the price includes brekkie !
