Did you try ordering thru the box office John? Always works for me at the Colston Hall, but then I'm never after front row tickets which are, I think, block booked by the ticketing sites, bastards.

You can only buy through Ticketmaster, and because it's still only the pre-sale you can't do it over the phone until it's on general sale.

Bit of a weird one last night. Nothing to do with the band as such who seemed very happy - in fact PO was very talkative: everything from the temperature to shit haircuts - but every 2nd or 3rd song large chunks of the audience sat back down.

They changed the order round a bit from Adelaide, this time doing Mirror Man rather than OYH as the second song after Sky which, much as I really love it, I don't really think should be the opener.

I struggle to understand the band's fondness for playing Sky live, nearly nobody knows it and most of those who know it are pretty ambivalent about it. It's a bizarre track, an absolutely cracking build up, to a chorus with no hook.
