    Can’t get ANY tix for anything. Gutted.

    Yeah, this was some high-level marketing bullshit from the Band’s agents. Get people to buy the album with the promise of a pre-sale link (whilst trying to hide the no-purchase necessary small print), but then make about 100 tickets available for each day so the whole pre-sale was almost meaningless. Both my buddy and I were reloading all four London dates from 10am and got nothing.

    Still confident for Friday, but the whole pre-sale process has left a bitter (and absolut) taste.

    They told me from Songkick that on 19th May will be plenty tickets left for the european shows. If it’s any consolation…
    Even though I was able to buy pre-sale tickets, I’m little bit disapointed that I didn’t received code for shows until I wrote to SK. The album was too expensive to buy with all that shipping shit while I have subscription to a streaming service. Oh well.. Everything I’ll forget on 6th November :D.

    hello! used to be on here about five years ago, but this is just a brief visit.

    successfully got in to Edinburgh in the presale, but I researched before and did so again just now and for the UK (but not Ireland) shows it looks as if there is also a spotify presale and an O2 priority presale tomorrow 10am.

    Anyone pull anything good for Boston? Got BB, which is pretty far back. Hoping to have better luck on Friday. Pretty underwhelmed w/ the tix they released for the Fan Presale….

    You didn’t need to purchase the album to get in on the pre-sale.

    According to Twitter, by streaming the new song from Spotify there is a chance to get selected for another presale event. I thought I’d worked through my obsession for this band but apparently not. 😉

    I accidentally deleted the text with my presale code. LAME. Maybe don’t make it look so spammy next time? Though, probably would have gotten terrible, if any, seats. My consolation.

    Friday I’m looking at you!

    I know, and I didn’t. But they sure as hell tried to mislead people into thinking they had to, didn’t they?

    “BUY ALBUM NOW FOR EXCLUSIVE PRE-SALE LINKS TO TOUR”

    No purchase route here.

    I don’t think I have ever seen so many pre-sales for one tour before.

    Spotify has much better seats available than Songkick did yesterday!
    Manchester also has O2 Priority and Gigs&Tours are doing another one tomorrow.

    At this rate I’d be surprised if there are many tickets left for the official sales on Friday.
    Let me know if you need any codes/links for Europe and have been registered on here for a while.

    I’m more of a lurker than a poster although I asked a few questions back in 2014, because I’m a country mouse who got nervous about going to London for the final date of the TWFM tour.
    Would very much appreciate a code if one is available to try to get tickets to Cork Opera House.

    Hey Karin, we’ll be at Manchester on the Sat and London on (prolly) the Tues. Happy to meet up and say hello… louise lesenger at g mail dot com.

    So looking forward to seeing them again although not entirely convinced by the first offering from the album…

    Hey spirals, sorry I’ve only just noticed your message. Thanks, although I ended up with the Thursday in London so I guess our paths won’t cross?

    Also a little apprehensive about the album based on the single. There are some TN albums I love more than life itself but Trouble Will Find Me left me a little cold. I feel like I’ve been hurt by a lover and I’m scared to commit again!

    Hi Karin, ah that’s a shame. Hope you have a wonderful gig. My position on The System etc has shifted since I had it on loop on Spotify to try and get presale code. I’m really enjoying it now (familiarity breeds content) but really hear your committment issues!

    Hi, just had a look and the Spotify Cork presale is sold out now, so good luck Friday

    Thanks! I’ve got alarms set on my phone and will be diving in and hoping for the best at 9:59:45 tomorrow morning! 😀

    Despite a valiant two-people, several computer, and old-school-phone-dialling operation, I’ve been unsuccessful in getting tickets to The National in Cork Opera House. Boo.
    If anyone hears of tickets for sale at a reasonable price or contests to win tickets to Cork, please let me know!
