got my mates spare ticket to Of Monsters & Men for Sunday Nov 22nd.

Delighted, saw em at a festival in the summer, when I'd only listened to the 2nd album by then. 1st is much better again, so should enjoy it even more

Thats a bit fucking much. Was thinking of going but €150 for me and the missus for a Marley Park gig would have me thinking twice. Sure you'd get a weekend away for that.

In the context of who it is and how frequently they play I suppose its not that much. Aren't ELO charging 85 quid or something?

I bought my uncle an ELO ticket and it was 96 dabs for a standing ticket after fees. Ridiculous

As for Stone Roses, itll be an all day thing with likely a decent undercard

Well I wouldn't cross the road to watch ELO so I don't give a shit what they're charging. Reckon the under card for the Roses could be shit too. And like I say it's Marley Park. Not really a great place for a gig.

I really like Marlay park for gigs. I'd comment on it but still pay the 75 euro for the stone roses. Missed them in 2012, pretty much all of my mates from home were at it. Sounded brilliant

bought Pixies tickets as an xmas present for my brother just now. For a band that was my favourite for about 2 years, I've never seen em. And I've been told to expect the worst. but I can't not ever see them.

Only time I saw them was when they supported RHCP in Phoenix Park, and they absolutely mopped the floor with RHCP. So much better.

There were loads of sound problems for RHCP that day. They stopped their set for about 10 minutes to try and sort it out.

Just checked it there. The first time I seen the Pixies was 1991 :oops: :oops: That makes me feel very old.

I've seen them 3 times Phoenix park where I was too far back and the sound was shit, Landsowne road which was a bit better and The Olympia for the Doolittle tour which was brilliant

I was right up at the front for that so sound wise it was OK, but I was hugely disappointed by RHCP cos I'd have ranked them one of my favourite 2 or 3 bands at that time and I'd never seen them before. Still haven't for that matter.

Is presale for longitude already sold out? Can't manage to get Friday tickets to longitude at the moment and can't tell if I'm just doing something wrong or they're gone already


EDIT: got it sorted. Didn't realise I had to go through 3's website to do it
