Okay, there's also a London date, which they didn't bother to announce! http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=16067

Of course, I only discovered that after getting Bristol tickets, so if anyone wants second row tickets to the Bristol show at face value, let me know...

I too have Bristol second row tickets.  Although in my case it's a 15 minute walk from my flat.  You should be able to sell them nearer the time I reckon Deano.

Yeah shouldn't be a problem selling them.

Have to admit I'm confused why the London date is so cheap - 30 so less than the other tour dates, and significantly less than the Ben Folds Five Brixton date (which was nearly 50 if I remember rightly).

Brixton was 37.50 plus fees.

This is what happens when I don't check by for three days. Damn it! Got tickets for London but pretty far back.
It does seem crazy that the tickets are cheaper for a thirty odd piece orchestra than a three piece dirty rock n' roll band. Maybe it's because it is being promoted directed by The Barbican and not an outside promoter, so the cost is lower. Not complaining, mind!

Probably a mix of that, and the London date is with the Heritage Orchestra, who are probably a bit more set up for this sort of thing than the Royal Northern Sinfonia that are doing the rest of the tour (also explains the Northern bias to the dates).

The Berlin show July 2nd has just been cancelled! :( My guess is bad ticket sales. Does anyone know more?
