    Default Purchasing International Concert Tickets

    Ok, so I have decided on two events. I'm going to see the Raconteurs in Amsterdam and Sigur Ros in Rome.

    However, the ticketmaster sites only give mail as an option. Is there no will call in europe? Any advice on how to get reasonably priced tickets to these events?


    Any tips, tricks or ideas are welcome. Including that of the smart ass kind.

    Seetickets is pretty much just UK gigs and a few European festivals. I thought ticketmaster normally had a box office pickup option.

    Also, where are you going to on your Eurotrip? If you are coming to London first, you could paypal me the money and i could get them for you and have them posted here. (assuming you are coming here).

    I bought my ticket for Nick Cave in Dublin from ticketbastard in Ireland and they mailed it out here to Oregon w/out an issue. I understand your concerns about tix going m.i.a. enroute but I think you'll be ok.

    just go with regular mail-
    if they don't show up by a week before you leave, call and have them cancelled and re-shipped via courier. they do that.

    I think the problem is that he leaves for europe in 5 days time (according to his sig) so not much chance of the tickets turning up before he heads off.

    Mark, do you know where you're staying in Amsterdam? If hotel, you might try calling to see if they'd accept mail for you. It looks like even the other ticket resellers want to ship them.

    You could always go to the box office or ticket outlet once you're there and see if there are any tickets left...

    Nope. Still haven't booked amsterdam lodging. Shit, so much to do. It's gonna be a hostel though.

    Understood. Mail from Ireland to here takes about 6 days on average so I'd expect the same or maybe a day more from the Continent; you don't have a window.

    Either way, good luck in Europe. I'm not long back from 5 weeks over there. It's stupid expensive right now with the weak dollah.

    I really don't want to sit down and work out how much I spent. Oh well; I got to see Prague which I wanted to see for 20yrs (thank you INXS and the Never Tear Us Apart vid for that) and I got to marvel at the genius of Gaudi in Barcelona, 40 years after my father did the same on his jaunts.

    first off forget about the Raconteurs and save your euros for some dope and blowjobs.. as for Sigur Ros yeah don't miss em' I been to a few Europe shows and you can always scalp guaranteed. Also be careful bringing shit out of Schipol airport. Not recommended If you train it no Problem. Good luck!

    Yeah, it's astonishing. Parc Guell, Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Casa Battlo ...... (ran out of time and missed Batllo though. Grrr)

    I guess they run a bar on the top of La Pedrera during the summer on Fri nights. It would be sooooo cool to have a drink up there at night. You need to book it though. Something to think about. Also, get to Sagrada Familia right at 9am and go up the elevator then. The lines get very long for this if you wait.

    The outside of Barcelona Cathredral was under reno when I was there but the inside is stunning. Very strong Gothic influences.

    I'll be out of town that weekend, so you may have to just chance tickets on the night (or get them sent to your hotel/hostel).

    Melkweg is a pretty small venue. The Raconteurs should be good there.

    You know, I'm planning to go back in a year or two, and looking at pictures, realized I am just as excited to go a second time as I was the first time. It is the greatest city. La Pedrera was closed for restoration when I was there, the rooftop bar sounded incredible though. Batllo is great at dusk - to do it again, I'd go directly to the roof and catch the view while there is still light, then go down to the first floor and make my way up again. I was there at night which made the lighting very dramatic, but could not clearly see the tile work on the outside nor the view from the roof.
