David Gilmour - concert tickets update

Further to our news yesterday concerning David Gilmour's additional concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, we have some more detail on ticketing for this show.

As with the previous two nights (29th/30th May 2006), this extra concert (31st May) had a pre-registration period offering 300 pairs of tickets, through DavidGilmour.com. For those who didn't receive their magic email, giving the special code number allowing them to buy tickets in advance, we can give you some good news.

We had a call from David's management this evening, with the information that the Royal Albert Hall and Seetickets.com will be selling tickets for the show from 9am (GMT) on Friday morning.

As many of you know, the tickets for the first two shows pretty much sold out within an hour, so credit cards at the ready! The other European shows are all but sold out - Paris has a few tickets available for both shows there (at the Grand Rex and the Olympia) but only odd tickets remain for the other shows. It may be worth contacting the venues to see if they have any, and of course, the staging for some shows means that on occasion, extra seats can be included at the last minute. Definitely worth checking with the box offices!

Tickets for the US and Canadian shows are also selling very strongly, with most of the early tickets having now been sold. For most, if not all the venues, some tickets are being kept behind for when the public sale of tickets begins on 14th January; the presale of tickets is being done purely through Ticketmaster using the telephone numbers and internet link given on DavidGilmour.com.

More news as we have it!
