Working Rehearsals

R.E.M. are to perfom at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland for 5 nights over the summer to showcase their new album, before it has been recorded or released. And I got tickets!

The 5 nights sold out all stock available to R.E.M. fanclub members online in about 6 hours. They kept some for physical sale from the ticket booth in Dublin, but they would have sold online if they were available. See the full REMhq press release here for more info.

*Boring story below, you may wanna skip this paragraph*

Must admit i was not impressed with they way the website worked. My own fault, but i hung on before buying tickets as i wanted to check about flights and accommodation. When i finally got around to doing it, literally a few hours after receiving the e-mail announcing it, Sat, Sun and Thurs had all sold out (i wanted to go Thurs as it was the last night). I kept refreshing the page cause i wasn’t convinced they had all managed to go that quick. Everytime i did, available tickets kept appearing and disappearing. I managed to catch 2 general admission tickets for Tues, logged in and then paid. But when the confirmation screen appeared, i was told i had ordered one unreserved seated ticket!?!? Although stunned, i thought i better try again and get the tickets i desperately wanted and sort the mess after. So luckily the 2 standing tickets were still there, and i got those. Anyway, i explained the problem and gotta refund on the miscellaneous ticket

Anywho, i managed to get 2 standing tickets for Tues 3rd July, so if your there that night leave me a comment so i know who to look for!!! I’ll post about it again when it’s happened.

Check out more info @ REMhq, Murmurs and BBC News Website.
