thanks so much for this info.
I am worried about getting the ticket in time. as I am in Denmark.
but I will leave on 10th, just hopefully they won't come at the last minute.

The tickets for this event have not yet been dispatched, but will be going out in the next few days. If nothing has arrived 3 days before the concert, please let us know so we can arrange for new tickets to be picked up from the box office.
So, fingers crossed for timely delivery!

Oh - and the starting time on the official Facebook event has been changed to 8 pm, not sure if that means anything. No support act had been announced yet, has there?

I'm abroad, so I don't think I'll get mine in time. If they haven't arrived by Saturday I'll give AXS a ring, as there's no mail delivery here on Mondays and Tuesday will probably be too late for them to get the tickets to Blackpool in time. All those worries could have been avoided if they'd just gone for e-tickets instead. I mean, I don't mind printing my own PDF if it means less worrying, but apparently AXS still lives in the 20th century. At least the Winter Gardens box office appears to be open from 10 AM so we won't have to collect our tickets five minutes before showtime.

On a positive note - only one more week to go now! Yay! So excited!

So true. Also, I do not see why they are sending out tickets later than ticketmaster did -- if, as they say, they need them to be delivered from the venues ( :roll: ), this would apply to ticketmaster as well... :x

This is really annoying me now... I just want my tickets!!
They did this when I saw them in Wolverhampton too, and on the day it took forever to get everyone through the doors because they checked everyone's ID and card matched their tickets, good grief.

And you're all in the UK, right? If they haven't arrived there yet, there's absolutely no way they'll be in other countries in time. How amateurish. The gig was sold out by noon on the day it went on sale. The whole batch of tickets for that show could have been printed and dispatched on that very same day, but noooo. That would be much too easy, wouldn't it?

As we all know, part of the Blur fan contract is signing up to things 'not being easy'. ;)

Haha, true, that. Never a dull moment!

On a side note - at which pub will the pre-gig forum meet-up be? I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, but it would be nice to know which place to go to if I do decide to pop in.

axs are hopeless, they told me via twitter they were sent 3 days ago, no sign, call centre doesnt know when they were sent, "dont worry sir they will arrive 3 days before" they fail to understand people have to travel, they can sort box office collection, but that needs to be next week, they cant do it now....same for llandudno :cry:
