Jeff Lynnn's tour is selling today. Maybe they wanted to avoid a surge??

seems that touts had a large number of tickets already and thats obviously pissed him off....the only way around it is either queuing for hours to get in...which would be good for the diehards...or ticketless concerts...just pick your tickets up at the venue with the card that you used to pay for them online...

The Vienna venue told ust they have no idea when the sale will be but sure not today and they assume very shortly before the show

I think it's a sign telling us to think again before we all spunk £150 quid on a 2 hour piano medley of Nothing Compares 2 U and Condition of the Heart.

I planned a Trip to Vienna from Berlin. With my Girlfriend. 500 Euros for Tickets plus

Flight and Hotel 400 Euros extra. Plus taking 3 days off.

I must have been out of my mind!

A Prince/Jeff Lynne/Ultravox worldwide internet surge could have broken the internet perhaps?

That is a good shout. That or there is not the demand he expected ? be embarasing if he could not fill the small venues.

Where is that coming from? it wouldn't surprise me- but then it's because the agencies he's using to sell tickets run the touting websites themselves and just put loads on sale there rather than the 'official' sites.

Cut out the agencies, book through his site, names at door, no tickets, photo id required would surely be the mest method to get round this nasty business?

I don't think demand is going to be a problem, he's never had trouble filling venues in Europe. And the demand can't be measured until the tickets go on sale anyway, so that theory seems like nonsense to me.

The sale for Vienna was announced just yesterday - I am sure they already knew about Jeff Lynne/Ultravox going on sale too when they announced the Prince sale

just spotted this on prince3EG@


MULTIPLE CHOICE: A. SCAVENGER B. VULTURE C. TOUT D. ALL OF THE ABOVE


so it's definitely more of a method to stop the touts, as opposed to logistics

He is looking out for the true fans so I think we should be happy about that. The sale will happen in a different way. Patience.

This makes no sense. 2 tickets per person, same card and photo ID, how can a tout buy a 100 and sell them at a marked up price?

Yes, exactly this! The tickets will probably go on sale without my noticing, and I'll miss out again.

Did you wait in the cold for 3 hours until 6 am and were number 9 in line and have no idea if you will get a ticket when the sale will start another time sad ?

This German Firm is Specialized in Personalization of tickets. Tickets.de

Here the Text for a Kraftwerk Concert

Tickets for the shows will exclusively be sold personalized. Personalized means, that every single ticket is bounded to one person who is mentioned by name on it. Special limitation: only 4 tickets per person may be purchased per show.
Personalization of tickets as well as the limitation of the number of purchasable tickets takes place for causes of fairness and to avoid a secondary ticket market on which tickets often are offered to excessively inflated prices. Through this special and conscious regulation of pre-sale all fans should been given the opportunity to purchase tickets at fair prices.
The official online ticket pre-sale is handled exclusively by www.kraftwerk.tickets.de. All other ticket providers offering tickets for sale are NON AUTHORIZED sellers.

I do agree, in theory that of course he could fill those venues, but i'm a long time prince fan, who would easily spend all his disposable income to see this. I would in theory pay with a finger to see a small show, just prince.

I just have no way of judging if its appealing to the wider gig going masses.This close to Christmas and the money he is asking for tickets. Even people here seem hesitant to part with cash asked.

Outside of the org, the general interest seems muted. Twitter does not seem to care (if that is an indicator).

Was it ONA tour where he limited tickets to name on tiket with photo ID? That worked pretty well for NPG music club memebers and general sale. How hard can it be.

Queue at the door is bullshit - totally useless for many of us.

Yep, something doesn't add up there.

Regarding the limit of 2 tickets per person for the tour, it seems to me that Prince really wants as many people as possible to see this. Or perhaps he's just bored of Unique's smiling face in the front row of every gig and wants a change of scenery? lol
