I hope so, went to Sheffield gig with loads of money to buy t-shirts and there were none left in my size. Still got that money in my pocket right now but really don't know how long I can resist spending it for!!!

16 oct. they only had size L, I bought it, but now I'm sorry I did. I doesn't fit at all :(

When I'm 70 years old and have shrunk a lot, it'll fit ;D

We will take a few shirts to Canada with us, but to be honest we don't have that many left. Naturally, we will make what we still have available on line.... but we won't be buying in any new ones, so I'm afraid there won't be any extra sizes.
The fact of the matter is that we hardly sell any T-shirts over the internet, so it's not practicle to print up a bulk number for the one or two we might shift..... sorry....

Should have done what I did and bought an XXL shirt!! - its not THAT big either...

I have to say that the 2 Arena gigs I attended (London and Sheffield) were 2 of the best gigs I've ever been to.

They had the same issue over at the camelproductions.com shop, and solved it through preordering. when enough preordered they printed t-shirts.

thanx for answering :)

You guys should just setup somethiung on cafepress.com and let people buy it there. You do not have to stock, and they are made on demand, and not to expensive. I did that with my company's stuff and my
employees order it there, etc.

Hey I don't mind ;) I think you probably relise i try not to take myself too seriously,and besides its a fact I am vastly overwight and to say there were no t-shirts left would not be true, as the mercandise guys themselves said 'Only small ones left, you can tell there aint too many women buying t-shirts' it's just that I could go out and buy some T-shirt transfer paper and make my own in the same way that I could download the albums and artwok from file sharing programs But that wouldn't put any money in the bands pockets and to me anything other than the genuine article just dosn't seem quite the same. However d.i.y t-shirt better than NO t-shirt! But would I have to ask permission to use the bands artwork or logo?

In 2003 I made my own T-Shirt from the Arena logo, and let the guys sign it after the concert (was a white shirt), and they even liked the idea...

In the cafepress shop you can decide to set the price over the minimum price and let the difference go to an Arena account. F.I the minimum price for a t-shirt is  about $15, if you priced the t-shirt to $18. Arena get $3 for not doing anything excerpt give permission to use of artwork. I would prefer that Arena would stand behind and make it official.

Not a bad idea, that.  But again, the band could become out of pocket if lots of people did that, because they aren't selling the shirts.  The band would have to charge for the use of their logo... :)
...Is this just a dream I'm in?
