Yes I hear for the general sale for London this morning, Ticketmaster sold out of their allocation in 1 minute and See Tickets has crashed.

Had to rely on a friend of mine who has an O2 phone to help me get early release tickets on Weds. I've now done what I did with Metallica and Iron Maiden and joined the Pearl Jam fan club to get early release for the rumoured dates late this year.

Will be my first time seeing them and quite a few of my friends from back home are coming down for the gig, so it should be a fun night!

It was only fifteen quid when they supported Dimmu Borgir at Rock City t'other year.Mind you,does 17.50 include a booking fee? I never pay that,as I always pick up my Rock City ticks from the box office for cash.

Heaven's Basement - Southampton
Wolf/Cauldron - London

:D

On the downside, Dream Theater in Southampton sold out before I could get tickets, and no-one can come with me to Death Angel in London. :(

I bought:
L.A. Guns in London (which they promptly cancelled AFTER I bought my coach ticket, £2.50 down the drain)
Falconer in London
Enthroned in Bristol

I was also tempted by Anvil in London, but the minimum that night would cost me is £25 including the ticket and transport, before food and drink. I'm not a big enough fan to justify it and had to prioritise a little.


KIT 12 was a few weeks ago, were you thinking of that?

I'm SO stoked about it. Of course I'm mainly going for Anacrusis (though they will be doing a UK date around the same time as KIT13 - more on that soon!) but Watchtower and Whiplish are the icing on the cake!
