Don't think anyone has kicked this one off yet so I will. I was a student at Sheffield Polythechnic in the mid 80s and so fancied going to the Steel City to take a trip down memory lane and see how much the place has changed since then.

Oh..and I might as well see Ultravox whilst I'm there. wink

Anyone else from the forum going?? smile

Know nothing about Sheffield, but I've got reasonably good seats for the show (G17-18). Sorry I've nothing to add regarding meeting spots or accommodations, but I'd love to tag along to whatever is recommended. I'm looking forward to researching the town - coming over from Toronto. Thanks for setting up this topic Mike. smile

Spineless, I live very near to Sheffield, so if you need any help or advice planning your trip, let me know. One thing I can tell you is that finding accommodation shouldn't be a problem - there are lots of hotels to choose from, most of them new!

Hi guys,

Me and Mrs C. will be at the Sheffield gig with some mates, but I don't know where we'll be meeting up yet, and I'm not from Sheffield, so don't know the best places, but I'll let you know nearer the time when I find out.

Doesn't look like I'll be going to Sheffield now as it's unlikely I'll get the time off work. A couple of people have left in the past two months and haven't been replaced plus the gaffer is going on maternity leave the week before. sad
I don't want to book train tickets now just to get them cheaply and then find I can't go. I've already cancelled the hotel reservation.

So, I'll be selling 2 Row B tickets very soon. I haven't got the tickets yet which is a bit worrying as I've already got my Newcastle tickets through the post and opted for the Sheffield ones via the same delivery method. Anyone else got their Sheffield tickets yet??

I'll advertise the tickets when I have them and I'll just be looking to recover my costs.

Still going to Embra and the Toon though! laugh

I have my Hammersmith Odeon tickets, but not my Sheffield tickets, even though the two sets were booked on Ticketmaster in the same session - does seem a bit strange!

I haven't received my tickets as yet for Sheffield, however I have been in the situation before where tickets have turned up usually seven to ten days before, so not worried at the moment.

Hi Cerise.
I was looking on the internet for pubs near to Sheffield venue.
ALL BAR ONE 13-15 Leopold St. MUSEUM 25 Orchard St.
Both these places serve food. I don't know Sheffield at all, so I don't know what these places are like, but if anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to recommend somewhere.

Them buggers at Ticketmaster must be gigglin' amongst themselves eh - all the squeaky bums on this forum. We've got all our tickets but I do sympathize with those of you who haven't yet received them. I can understand why they don't dispatch the tickets shortly after you purchase them, but leaving it so close to the event is a bit :rolleyes:

Oh well, let's hope everyone gets them in time for the gigs. smile

Still no tickets! Just phoned Ticketmaster again, and they advised that they can put duplicate tickets aside for box office collection, but only within 5 days of the event. They suggested that I call back on Thursday to do this.

Has anyone else still not received their tickets? It's spoiling the excitement in a way for me. frown

Yes, I can't say I've been very impressed with Ticketmaster's delivery system. They don't seem to understand that people get very worried (or may need be travelling already) if they wait until so damn close to the show to send them. frown

I got my Nottingham tickets in January so I don't understand why they can't just send them all out at the same time.

Have no fear - I was getting worried too but it popped through the letterbox Saturday. My other tickets for Hammersmith and Nottingham arrived ages ago so don't know why Sheffield took so long. I was getting resigned to having to contact Ticketmaster - which I was not looking forward to.

I still haven't got my tix and have just phoned ticketmaster up to complain. I got the same response as you Richman. I personally think the whole setup is a disgrace. It is certainly spoiling the whole event for me. I need to make plans but am unable to do until I know I have the tix in my lil mitts. Not happy! However, it is reassuring to know that a number of you still haven't got your tix so it's not like they are just singling me out! lol.

Not sure i can make the bar before the gig,time may be a bit tight, but should anyone happen to see a tall fat bloke with short greying hair and an ill fitting voxgate shirt under a black jacket, please say hello, it would be great to see you. I'm getting excited now, can't believe how this week has dragged!!!

Did anybody actually go to the Sheffield Voxgate? Myself and two friends ventured there around 6.50 or and were present for over an hour but there seemed to be very few followers present. It lead me to wonder if the All Bar One had another bar or something!

The lads did well last night but were let down by the lack of audience atmos. Sheffy City Hall is a fine venue but very few people stood to dance in the stalls and even fewer where we were in the gods (signs stating "please do not stand" might have had something to do with it!). I was tempted to dance quite a bit but might've been giving a hard word by the venue staff. Looking forward to Hammy and the Roundhouse where I fully intend to dance!

By the way, stage times were as follows:

On-stage at 8.30 prompt
All done by 10.10.

I was there with my brother, then met up with Richard65 (the only person I saw wearing an Ultravox tshirt)and Ghost in the machine. We left ALL BAR ONE about 6.30pm, because even though the bar was packed, it was difficult to determine who the 'voxgaters' were, short of going round and asking everyone. Hope everyone who went to Sheffield enjoyed it as much as I did. excited

We missed you by about twenty minutes. I too didn't see anyone wearing a EV or UV t-shirt. Maybe each Voxgate-organising person could ask the management of each venue to put up a poster saying where and when the Voxgate will happen? Most folk there seemed to be eating and, whilst this doesn't preclude them from being UV nutters, I doubted it by the looks of them!

I've not received my Hammy Voxgate tickets yet but am watching the post every day now. Here's to a) decent crowds at the London Voxgates and b) folk getting up to dance at the gigs! It makes all the difference*.

* Midge asked if we were allowed to dance last night as he must have noticed hardly anyone was save for the fine chap in the white t-shirt in the stalls who gave it loads for the whole set, amid a large amount of arse-sitters! Respect due to him.
