Good weekend though, started slightly fuzzy with booze, then met the parents for a curry at the Punjab in Covent Garden, then saw David Blaine in his box, he really does seem to be there, I don't get what the trick is still. Is David Blaine cheating? Then a mooch round Borough Market, got some New Forest cider, then an equally fantastic curry in the Anglo Asian, then a mooch round Spitalfields Market, a very productive weekend, hope the week can be as good... already have lined up Chikinki tonight at Barfly, then Duran Duran tomorrow, then quite possibly Frank Black on Wednesday, then it seems REM are playing Shepherds Bush Empire on Thursday, so who knows... then meeting up with The Chaps on Friday. Action packed.
Seems they've put quite a bit of effort into stopping touting -
Wristbands will be fixed to your wrists when they are collected at the box office, therefore if you have reserved two tickets, then the person attending the gig with you must be present when you pay for them
There's on Ebay already, that's the only way to be able to flog them, to arrange for the person with the money to come to the venue with you, not very professional as far as touts go! Still, I have already struck a deal with a cow-orker, if he got tickets I'd have one, and if I did, he would... not going to be at all convenient to go and collect them, will mean a taxi there and back in a lunch hour, but hopefully another option will present itself.
