Meltdown 2018 curated by Robert Smith


#181

I didn’t get an option to join a queue until 9 and was placed at 1300 then. It moved pretty quickly at least, which didn’t sound like was the case for the RFH.


#182

Worth £1800 alone surely…


#183

does this means there are no general sale tickets?


#184

Anyone have any idea how much standing tickets are worth? I know unlikely we will get them…


#185

Thanks again for the presale code - got one ticket (£200…fuuuuck) by refreshing once through the queue and I guess people were cancelling things out of their baskets. Instant buyers remorse but oh well, one of my all time favourite bands in a relatively small venue!


#186

£200?! What do you get from Trent for that?


#187

Wow, where are you sitting?


#188

Stalls in H block, row 8…just Googled and looks like it’s the block to stage right.


#189

Well glad you got one! Didn’t realise the seats were that much more expensive than the standing tickets, but have had a decent view whenever we’ve been in the stalls there.


#190

I think they were around £65 from the venue.


#191

The queue is motoring. I have gone from 1300 to 303 in 10 minutes


#192

249


#193

Is it because it now says pre-sale sold out? Should I stay in this queue for general sale?!


#194

Website’s showing it as sold out so wouldn’t get your hopes up…


#195

It is worth staying on booking page until 12pm. It could work?


#196

Does suggest more tickets will go on sale at midday so hopefully that will be the case. Good luck!


#197

Yeh sounded like it works similar to how Southbank did - if you were online earlier you were further forward in the queue


#198

Also might be worth trying to call at midday if you can- I didn’t get very far with the queue on the website, but my wife rang the box office and got through quickly that way.


#199

Do we know if Southbank are taking any action over Viagogo and the tickets on there? I saw that they tweeted them saying tickets sold through there would be invalid but not sure how they could actually enforce it.

The state of buying tickets now is ridiculous - not sure what the answer is but feels increasingly stressful and more and more unfair - there were NIN tickets on Viagogo for hundreds of pounds even before the fan pre-sale, let alone general sale.


#200

Hahaha fucking hell, just looked and it’s a bullshit reception package, probably shouldn’t have panic bought! Need to drink £140 worth of beers to get my moneys worth…so probably about four.
