LOL - damn Ady you beat me to it - was just the idea I had when I saw that message on the DC board! hehe... will teach me not to live on the boards :) there's sure to be some more crop up anyway...

And if anyone finds any more at any point - let me know!

Try e-mailing a guy called Torsten - his post is on the Tour board about the Friday show...I will give him a line too, as I arseholeishly blew him out over some tickets when ANOTHER friend let me down.

Thanks to everyone who offered help. I think I now have a pair for Sat, but have had to pay through the nose for them - 35 each! And the really annoying thing is that 2 Saturday tickets went for 32 - YES 32 on Ebay today!!! And I missed it by 3 minutes. Live & Learn....

32! When?!? I've been checking Ebay twice a day! Argh! The best offer I have so far is from some ticket broker - 50 each + VAT!

I have two Saturday tickets which I need to swap for Friday.  If I can't swap them I'll have to sell them.  The bidding starts at one million dollars. Each.
