Hi guys and gals, I'm new here so thought I'd say hello. Yes, you read that right... am I mad? Long story short.... I've been a fan for many years and see Roy whenever he's in London, and occasionally when he's not. This festival hall malarkee is going to be a big deal, I reckon, and being on the Roy Harper mailing list I knew the minute the tickets went on sale. When I checked though, all the front stall seats had already been taken. I have a friend in the 'biz' that told me if I ever needed VIP tickets, boxes, etc to give her a call so obviously I called her and she said 'no problem, leave it with me'. She called me yesterday to say, 'Sorry, can't do it mate'. How gutted was I? I should have bought a couple of £30 tickets anyway as insurance! So today I've had to go to those hateful ticket tout sites, sorry I mean, those sites where genuine people who genuinely bought a ticket but genuinely now can't make it and so will flog their tickets onto mugs like me for three times the face value. Then you add the £44 booking fee and everyone's happy.... well, except for me who would much rather have given the money to Roy than some arse that wants to make money out of him and probably doesn't even know who he is. Sorry... just had to get that off my chest. BUT... I'm going. And in twenty years I'll look back and won't even remember the nasty money stuff. And if I hadn't bought the tickets... well, I'd have regretted it for years. Hopefully see some of you guys there... I got rear stalls...BB.
