Right then - firstly, this is fantastic news, like many, many others I have hoped that this would happen for a long, long time but didn't think it would actually come to fruition!!

It's also great news because it provides those of us that can make it to the gigs with ideal opportunities for really full on Voxgates, and for me this is great as I have never been to a previous Voxgate due to personal circumstances..

I've always wanted to meet up with a lot of the regulars here and now I have the chance!!

So - I will DEFINITELY be getting to the Hammersmith gig (and hopefully several others too)..

So lets start the ball rolling:-

HAMMERSMITH - who's up for it??

I reckon the best bet is for a separate thread relating to each gig, then we can get a clear idea of who is intending to to get to which gig!

woohoo woohoo woohoo woohoo woohoo

If everything works out with the tickets and stuff, me and my wife, and hopefully a couple of friends, will come from SWEDEN for the Hammersmith gig, and would be very pleased to meet a lot of fellow Ultravox friends! laugh


And of course it would be extremely fun to finally meet Cerise after all these years - Cerise, will you be there?!?! welcome

Hi all
I will be there too. This is my chance to be with people who love Ultravox just as much as I do. I thought I was the last one left in the world because it seems that out of all the people I know in person have bearly heard of Ultravox never mind like their music.
Lets all meet up in one place during the day so we can all get to know each other more.
Await more details.
Peter

Never been to Hammersmith Apollo before. For those of you who know the venue: what do you think, standing or seating tickets?

Its either standing or seated depending on the band/promoter. Sadly I think it will be seated for Ultravox but I really hope it isnt.

Past experience of going to Hammy O gigs is that people will tend to stand anyway, even if it an all seater. Financial constraints won't allow me to get tickets for another couple of weeks, but I hope to be at Hammersmith or Brighton Dome.

Woo-hoo!! Just booked tickets for myself and one of my wife's ex-work mates who it turned out has uncannily similar tastes in music to me - we've been to see OMD re-united, Numan revisiting Replicas and now this!!!!!! The icing on the cake would be an offical live DVD/CD of the gig as a lasting reminder...

Right, that's me sorted - Row K - seat 13!!!

Now for a few Googles on decent watering holes nearby.. for my part I'll certainly be making a day of it, and hopefully afterwards as well..

..it's great to see that quite a few "EVers" seem to be making plans to be at Hammersmith!

It'll be great for me as I saw them promoting Vienna, Quartet and Lament - RIE was the only one I missed out (I don't include U-pox for obvious reasons!), so to get this opportunity is kinda completing the set for me in a strange way!

I'll be there. I'll be interested in hearing about reasonably-priced hotels nearby (though as I've cancelled a trip to San Francisco because of the tour, I do have some spare budget now).

This pub should be ok for a pre-gig meet. It's the usual haunt. There are a few places a little further away, but the Old Trout should be avoided in the shopping centre. Easy to find but quite awful!

http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub3358.html

I'll contact the Electric Dream guys and see if they can organise an aftershow club night too.

Had another try at getting a ticket but card won't have it.... cry . Since best available was in row X I don't think my chances of any tickets being left come friday are great somehow.
Oh well my fault for not sorting it before Birmingham!

LOL.....thank you for the encouragement Steve....it worked.... when money hits the account on friday morning I will definitely be giving it another shot! But if tickets are all gone I'll not be putting silly money in a tout's pocket!
The recent house move caused havoc with the cashflow......but with Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester booked its probably 'greedy' to want London too!

Just got to figure out how to finance accommodation and travel costs next....especially for Scotland! I'm hoping to make a mad dash for a late night train after Birmingham & Manchester.....if I make it to London it'll be a case of waiting for the first morning train I think.....hopefully waiting rooms stay open overnight!

Steve....thank you! After I'd replied to your post remembered I'd got a tenner in cash... just been to the post office to pay it into my bank account to give me enough balance for the ticket.
Total madness when things are that tight but this is Ultravox....best band in the world! Who says you get more sensible as you get older.....bet I'm not alone either! Hopefully I won't run out of anything between now and friday lol but what the hell I have a ticket! Stalls weren't available so its block 11 of the circle but main thing is I'll be there after all. laugh

I've asked this elsewhere but time is of the very essence so it won't hurt to ask again.

I've only just ventured onto the TicketMaster EV link and found that the only seats available in Hammersmith are practically the other side of the river and at altitude. Not knowing the venue I have to ask, is it possible to buy these then scuttle down, all furtive like, to the ranks for the truly living for the concert? Or will a wider range of seats go on sale tomorrow when they open to Joe Public and I might pick up a better position then? All this booking by computer makes my ears bleed, sod it!

I will not miss this bit of one small history!

I will definately love to meet all of you at a pre-show gathering. And, although the cost of this is mounting for me, it will even be more if Sleepwalker still has an SS30 he is willing to part with !!! Wonder if wifey can fit one into her carry-on!

Now I just need to find someone to take care of my kids while wifey and I take a frivolous trip across the pond!

As a regular drinker in that area I would say that the Distillers is very suitable for a meet up - the pubs on the underground station side are always over packed.

Greetings.

When I heard the news I had to come back and join the revelry! smile Overwhelming news, to say the least.

It's been a while - don't know if anyone remembers me. But, I'm very pleased to say I will be at the Hammersmith show! Nosebleed seat, sadly, but I will be there. Now just have to book the flight, hotel, etc. You know, the really enjoyable stuff. But well worth it.

And if I may, it would be an honour to finally meet you all at the Voxgate. smile

Still cannot believe this is really happening! shock

All the Best - Volglory
