‘Mad for Morrissey’

The South Wales Echo has covered this mornings ticket rush in a small article;

Eager Morrissey fans bombarded St David’s Hall’s box office and internet ticket agents as his Cardiff show sold out in an hour today.
Tickets to see the former Smiths frontman at the Cardiff venue on Monday, May 15, went on sale at 9am today.
More than 200 tickets were sold on the internet in the first 10 minutes.
All of the general sale tickets, including those sole by internet ticket agents, went before 10am. The rest of the tickets were kept back for Friends of St David’s Hall.

This is unsurprising. Ticketmaster were sold out by about 9:03am. See, by about 9:10.
I was very lucky to have gotten hold of those standing tickets from Ticketline UK, since it was purely curiosity that made me call them. I didn’t even know there were going to be standing tickets, as far as I was aware, it was seating only.

Plus, Jo F talks about ‘jammed phone lines’, I got through first time, as if the phone line was there just for me. Just lucky I suppose.

Anyway. I have 4 spare, seated, tickets.
The reason I got such goods seats (Tier 11, Row F, Seats 27-30) was because I have to have been the first person, on Ticketmaster at least, to have bought tickets. I was refreshing the page constantly from 8:55am, until finally, the drop down box to select how many tickets I wanted appeared. All went smoothly from then on. No problems at all.

If anybody wants to buy these tickets, I’d be glad to oblige.
(Though I shall speak to Jo first, as she has already expressed an interest)


  1. i got a ticket for the truro gig from ticketmaster just before they sold out. i tried to get a ticket for manchester apollo too but they sold out within minutes so i got one off ebay. unfortunately i think the reason tickets sold out so quickly is because there’s so many touts buying them to sell on ebay!
    glad for you that you got your tickets without any problems, enjoy the show.
