read that too

how do they decide who ends up with the wednesday night though?

sure accommodation, travel etc will have been booked for particular nights......are they liable to compensate people who are out of pocket?

sounds like the people who had Monday and Tuesday tickets have got fucked (I have 2 for Tuesday)

and there was me thinking that I'd swap them no bother because nathan carter is the support act that night :x

I doubt there'd be any compensation. All these gigs are advertised as "subject to licence". I'm sure that's all a legal thing so that if things go balls up like this they have a fall back.

no I didn't think there'd be compensation but it's a real fucker for so many people

hopefully hotels, b & b's are lenient with people about deposits paid or whatever

fuck all can be done about flights or any travel for that matter so I'm very glad I hadn't booked ours yet

HR made me come in an hour early today (at 12pm) for my exit interview, and the fucking prick is on his lunch when I come in so can't do it until 1pm now anyway.

Gonna make sure to leave an hour early!
