Apparently so, you just get no say in where you are sat or stood. Willing to take the risk as it seems okay.

They did a similar thing in Dublin prior to the gig on thursday there. Anyone thinking about going I'd definitely recommend it. They were fantastic at Croke Park. I didn't really know what to expect given their age etc but it was an outstanding gig.

I already have an account with them, which is what makes me think it's genuine.

If it's not, AEG have been hacked and they would be liable for any repayments.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone's wondering:

For those picking up lucky dip tickets on Saturday. You can do so between 10.30am and 2pm. There is chat on twitter about being escorted to your seat when you arrive and thus not being able to pick-up and leave with your tickets in order to come back later. This is what's been happening at other gigs, and the Stones website does say this is the case for all LD tickets, as well as AXS saying so on twitter...

I emailed Murrayfield to check it out and they have confirmed the escorting thing WON'T be happening on Saturday, pick-up times as above, and they (AXS) will be contacting us all with the update within the next couple of days.

Enjoy the gig :aok:

I had lucky dips for Old Trafford last night.

I just turned up at the box office with photo ID and was handed my tickets.

My advice would be to pick yours up as early as you possibly can. Due to the security in place and the length of the queue, we missed just about all of Richard Ashcroft.

If you can get there during the day, do so.

I had assumed that both attendees need to be present when getting the tickets. Hopefully the confirmation email explains clearly that this is not the case. Seems a bit restrictive to close the ticket office at 2pm - I expect that is guidance as opposed to a hard rule.

Mine too. Haven't yet received the email... if they're not making you go straight in then not sure why your guest needs to be present? Surely you could have anyone with you.. pick-up the tickets and return later.

If it's to stop scalping of tickets then I'm all for it, but if they're letting you return later then what's the point. Unless of course they are asking for ID from BOTH of you upon ticket collection AND entry.

Thanks for sharing CWG.

So to recap. You need to be there between 9 and 2, or 10:30 and 8pm, or 2 till 4pm. Either one of you or both of you need to be present at which point you'll be drawn on, let go or escorted into the stadium. Just don't bring a brolly or a bag bigger than a sandwich.

I owe you my thanks too.

We looked at buying full price tickets but the price, plus hotel and train fares was going to take us into several hundreds of pounds.

Given that I don't own a single Rolling Stones record, I couldn't justify the cost.

As it turned out, we found a brilliant hotel for £80 (Roomzzz at Manchester corn exchange) and £70 for 2 tickets made it more reasonable.

We spent a fortune on bevvy and grub, but we would have done that anyway. :greengrin
