'Ten Years On' tour
« on: Wed, 2007-01-24, 19:53:05 »
Look what I just found on Silhobbit.com:

"Arena, the Stockbrokers prog band of choice, have started booking dates on their 'Ten Years On' tour. The band are currently writing their new album, and hopefully will play some new tracks.

The only date so far confirmed is at the Boerderij in Zoetermeer, Holland on Saturday 2nd June

More here as we get it."

If it's true, and I hope it is... then I'll be there for sure.

But knowing Silhobbit a bit......

It is true indeed ! Just bought 5 tickets for the concert at de Boerderij in Zoetermeer for June 2nd. ! Don't want to miss it.

After the fantastic Pendragon concert there, it is time for Arena again.

Looking forward to the gig !

Good!

Shouldn't it be in the news section of the Arena website? Any guide for the album release date? This year?

Shall we start asking for one or two tracks we haven't heard before/for a long time?

I was thinking about Empire, for instance...  :D

I'll prolly be at the Colos-Saal in Aschaffenburg, if no other gig closer to me comes up. We have a good place here in Karlsruhe, called the Festhalle Durlach...  :D

Heh, it was me.


I hope Arena will play some songs from the Contagious/Contagium EPs, I think they're really great and as far as I know they've never played it yet.

Ten Years On Tour...
I hope they'll play a lot from all albums. ;D

I was just wondering something...

I wanted to buy my Arena's-Ten-Years-On-tour-tickets on ticketmaster.nl, but I think I wait a bit.
Maybe you guys can tell me something first.

1 ticket costs 19 euros.
I want 5 of them, so 5 x 19 euros = 95 euros, right?
Case closed.

Well, no...

It says it's gonna cost me 115,75 euros... :'(

Per order they want another 4,05 euros from me... I think it's waaaay too much, but alright, they want it so badly, they gotta live too right? But 1 time buying 5 tickets is ONE order right? It's not 5 orders... That's how I see it. :(
5 times 1 ticket is 5 orders... This is turning things the other way round!

Anyways Ticketmaster wants 4,05 x 5 = 20,25 euros over the 95 euros I already was going to pay.
And then 95 euros plus 20,25 euros makes 115,25 euros AND NOT 115,75 EUROS!! >:(

I think it makes much more sense if I only have to pay 99,05 euros... Which seems (to me) normal.
I can't remember I had the same thing with Kino and Frost ('n Pallas)... ???

I...
DON'T...
GET...
IT...

Do you?

Its a rip off imo. In reality each ticket costs 24 euros from Ticketmaster. Maybe the venue'll sell it cheaper direct?

I think booking fee charges are getting stupid. I don't see how they can justify such a high percentage of the ticket price. Maybe I'm missing something? In the UK, most places charge the same booking fee if you buy the tickets in person and this is buying direct from the venues. Makes me think they'll charge whatever they can get away with.

PH, that's definitely far too expensive. Write them an email, complaining. This can't be true, can it?

Hmmm It;s indeed quite a rip-off to pay 4,05 for each order....It wouldmake more sense if they made the tickets 3 euro's more
expensive and take 1 euro extra per order...

Anyway what tina suggested is a great idea....to buy tickets at the venue isself....problem is that many venues don't sell those tickets themselfs
"De Boerderij" (venue in Holland) only sells them at the evening itself (no pre-orders) and I know about other venues that don't even do that...(bit weird actually)
