Dream Theater at the Hammersmith Apollo in February. Massive hassle buying tickets. Ticketmaster and SeeTickets have event pages for the show but no tickets. The Apollo website has no good tickets left, which makes me think the best tickets were all snapped up in a presale I was unaware of or they're being reserved for the overpriced VIP packages.

I was on Seetickets at 10:00 and got decent tickets no problem.

HRH Sleaze IV - Sheffield Academy

"won" tickets for £12 each. Will be worth it if only for the last few bands. As with this year, we probably won't even head in to the venue until about 7pm each night.

Wanted to go to Mayhem, but it's the first day after a change in work situation after outsource company contract ends, so new building, colleagues, management structure etc even if same role. No one is allowed annual leave the whole of November, so turning up on the second day having been to a show and on about 4 hours sleep doesn't seem like a good move.

I do, I think I've gone to less than that all year though so far. I'm quite lucky that although London is a 3hr round trip I can do it in one day and the travel costs ~£10. Usually not that lucky with how many I want to go to are on Fridays/Saturdays and don't need leave (I like my sleep far too much to get in at gone 1am and start work at 8 )

Several of those are bands I've never seen before too. I'm also going to try and get Archgoat, Blasphemy, Black Witchery, Spectral Voice and Devin Townsend tickets before the end of the year. I hope no more gigs are announced - I've made my peace with the ones I can't go to already :lol: :lol:
