Most of the UK doesn't have links yet either. Ticketmaster was right on it for a few places.

I'm thinking that all the individual venues means it's cheaper if less organised.

Since it's now Monday I'm hoping that the links will be live today in preparation for tomorrow.

Posted too soon. It's now live for London

The ticket prices aren't yet up though

tbh, kind of annoyed about the sydney situation. i've been trying to organise my sisters and my mom all weekend so that i could buy our tickets together & finally got it sorted just a few hours ago and now it's uncertain again. hoping the prices aren't going up or we won't be able to afford it :roll:

(prob seems more frustrating to me than it is though, i'm a stresshead about trying to organise anything, this is why i don't go to many concerts lol)

*war flashbacks to when I wanted to buy tickets for Ed Sheeran, refreshed the page at exactly 11:00 and was put at position 18,000 in the queue* (we ended up getting tickets cause my friend luckily got spot 1000-something)
I am crossing my fingers for everyone who's trying to get VIP tickets!

And I am very curious why there's a 20 min break during the show. I don't think it's there cause people need a break during a 90 minute show, but rather because something will be happening/be prepared/be decided in that time. I'm glad that I decided on going to one of the earlier shows (Amsterdam) so I only have to avoid spoilers for a bit over a month.

Hello,

The venue in Leeds has already posted the event on their website (since Friday) but apparently when I called them regarding some information about the tour, they said they do not have information about it. I also told them that the ticket sale will be tomorrow and they told me they don't have information about that because that's not yet in their system. :| :|

I wonder about the other UK venues.

For the UK ones I think we'll be ok. The theatres are probably waiting on the ticket providers like Ticketmaster before them up.

i'm glad Phil addressed it. it begs the question though, about the other venues that aren't advertising or acknowledging the shoes, are they aware? perhaps tweet them in response because they might have their eye on the replies right now.

That's a relief to hear, thanks Phil! Glad I'm not going though, I start work at 9am on Wednesday and I'll be nowhere near a computer. That's gonna be a tense time for Australians tbh, the results of the same-sex marriage survey come out at 9.15am apparently, what a time to be alive :sideeye:

reading your last sentence made me crack up bc i didn't know about the time of the survey results, just the date. and, if the joint liveshow is at dan's usual time and goes for an hour, that's when it will finish (in aedt). when it rains it pours :lol:

v sorry to be the one to remind you, it has really been a rough time. keeping my fingers crossed for a positive result, i'll be at work and at least half of my coworkers are conservative christians who think i am straight and i really don't think i'm gonna be able to hide my sadness if 'no' wins. love to all my fellow lgbt+ australians :love1: :love1: :love1:

i just got a response from proctors theatre (schenectady) saying they'll post prices as soon as they have confirmation, but that may not be until sales time

so i guess venues don't know prices for sure yet? how is this even possible? why would they not know the day before sales? what are dnp even doing??? maybe this is totally normal, i don't really go to shows so idk. i just can't imagine being this late to organize, i genuinely can't comprehend it

This is honestly very normal. The venues don't really get much information as most ticket sales are done through agents (e.g. Ticketmaster) and the venues (or at least box office staff that would answer the phone) don't usually find out the details until the tickets are actually on sale.

It's also not that last minute for them to announce on Friday and go on sale on Tuesday in my experience. No one announces ticket sales much more than a few days in advance... it's annoying if you need to budget, but I guess there's a good reason for it from a business POV?

I really hope you get your tickets! (I really hope we all do! I moved my meeting cos it was due to end at 5 and I thought I'd have no chance after an hour and a bit haha)

I'm not sure though how much of this is the boys' fault and how much of it is incredibly slow and/or bad corporate communication. Don't sites like Ticketmaster do a lot of the tickets side of things? Having worked at big tourist places I can 100% imagine anyone being this late to organize, since I once had to set up promotions for a (6-month long) event when it had already started :lol: But basically, the more parties involved, the slower communication and agreements tend to get, so with a massive tour like this it's not that surprising a lot of venues don't have all the information yet.

It's incredibly annoying though. As a perpetually broke person the first thing I always do is check prices for anything interesting, so everything being left until the last minute like this would be incredibly frustrating to me. Luckily Amsterdam has price ranges listed already, so I already roughly know what I'm in for, but I can imagine it's frustrating if you're still waiting for confirmation.

it might have already been asked, but do you guys think that they'll do another tour in the future? i'm just way too anxious about going this time around but i know it might be my last chance so i kinda have to suck it up.

New Phil tweet. Typical food mention, but I appreciate the mental image of him falling into the delivery guy's arms. Rating: 6.5/10

I think we're getting a new Sims video later. Dan said to look forward to it in the LS and they were discussing pushing the trailer to Wednesday (IMO to give the Sims video more space - I hope they aren't doing that though). Personally a bit bored with the Sims, though DOGS so it will be good for sure.

I'm really getting super anxious with this tickets situation, I wish we had at least the prices. I hate not knowing what the show is about and how much it will be :/ honestly they could've at least released the trailer today
Will probably never be over the BONCAS and how cute Phil Lester is.

Phil just retweeted this:
I love this so much, thanks for bringing it over!

I have some vip questions if anyone has any insight. I'm curious what the m&gs are like? I've only ever been to a tv convention(but didn't do the m&g) where m&gs are very expensive and you sit in a room with the actor and it's like a q&a situation and then a photo op is completely separate and it's very rushed. I'm just curious if the photo op with Dan and Phil is the main interaction and is it super quick? I'm trying to get an idea of what it's like so if anyone has had one can you weigh in?

And also on the ticket site for my venue it says "Price Range $58.50 - $98.50" Do you think the 98.50 is the VIP or will those be different altogether (more expensive)? I'll find out tomorrow either way - I'd like to not get my hopes up though if possible lol.

thank you, everyone, for sharing information and experience, especially @Brack, that post about VIP tickets really calmed me down!

I've been freaking out all day today as I finally got to reading everything that's been posted since Friday. I'm so glad I'm on vacation and don't have to take time off from work tomorrow to be there at 4 pm but I still don't trust myself with fast actions that much

my venue also hasn't announced anything yet. as for the VIP tickets, will I be able to buy them on the venue's site? it has an option of buying regular tickests, I checked the other shows. or do I have to go to danandphiltour.com and wait for some links there?

thanks to folks who responded to my earlier post - it's frustrating, but at least it's not as weird as i thought? idk, somehow hearing that this is fairly normal helped. proctors is selling directly, not through ticketmaster, so that's one complication less, but yeah. plus now they've announced prices, so all i have to do is wait for mum to come home and budget. much much calmer.

i like the delivery story. yeah, phil, he would have thought you love burritos if you'd fallen swooning into his arms. because food often makes people weak in the knees. :lol:
unless phil's coming out as food-sexual :tinfoil:

i hope we do get sims today. i'd rather get the trailer, but pups are the next best thing. if they get a puppy i might die of cute, toddlers and puppies have the cutest interactions ever. i'm a sucker for (virtual) domestic deppy.
