So here it is again... Sorry about the delay in re-posting it... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

These crazy people want to come over again to watch their second favourite band here on Montjüic on Friday, 10th February 2006.

Apparently, they will be staying from 8-12 Feb (accommodation outside of BCN is booked?). If anyone else is interested in meeting up, please let us know! smile

Not sure about availability of DM tickets: check www.ticktackticket.com or ebay.

The concert will only last 2 hours, so if you cannot assist it, remember that this town is always worth a visit and we can all meet up between 8 and 12 Feb in it. In February, the temperatures are around 15-17°C, and the days are incredibly sunny!!

Flight tickets are very low at that time of year. For online flight booking, all you need is a credit or debit card and a valid passport or identity card. Advanced BA booking is often cheaper than the low cost airlines – and you get food/DRINK on board!

Also, I can recommend very central ** hotels for € 70,00 per double room or private appartments (central + very clean) for € 70,00 per day (up to 5 people).

Train fare from aeroport to town is € 0,63. Taxi costs are a laugh. wink
Food, booze, ciggies and healing substances are very cheap, too. laugh

Achtung! In Spain, you can use VISA cards for practically all purchases but you always have to present your national identification document confused2

For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will be pleased to be of assistance. Besides, it’s my job. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

And now... excuse me... the beach is calling... biglaugh

Love
LAVA

Er... nope. confused2

It's always been Friday, 10th Feb 2006. Always. Later on, they added a second show (11th) but that was sold out within a few hours, too.

Hm... I saw DM in 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1987. Not sure what to think of the dark image.

It will be good seeing you guys again. It has been a while... Maria is practising her English already (honestly). This woman is amazing.

As for this particular thread, I was very scared to re-activate it, considering the date and time that I put it online originally. However, it's done now.

Title sounds "promising"... :rolleyes:

Yes, maet, it is possible that you easily get tickets for the second gig for half price like 4 years ago, when Madonna played at the same venue:

We had tickets for the 2nd show, so we went up on the Friday evening already and got 2 tickets for € 30 EACH straight away, just getting off the bus that leads there. And only because it was 21.30h and the show was due to start. We bought the tix, went inside the venue and downstairs, to the "pista", it was 21.37h, the lights went out and there she was! It was fantastic.

WHAT ARE THE PLANS SO FAR APART OF WEARING FISHY LEATHER TROUSERS?

JUST FOR EVERYONE's GENERAL INFORMATION:

1) On 01/01/2006, Spain became a NON-SMOKING country. Smoking is, nevertheless, permitted in a large number of bars and restaurants (with an according sign on the outside door), at least until September.

In offices/at work and in public places, it is strictly forbidden (excellent!). Fines can reach a considerable height.

2) On 01/07/2006, Spain will be introducing a "points system" for drivers, based on the model that has been being applied for years/decades in France, Italy and Germany.

You have 12 points, which you will gradually be eliminating with every road delict you commit. Once you have no points left, your driving-licence will be withdrawn from you and you just f*** off.

Which basically means that drunks and rich gits don't just get away like anymore. Apparently, this system considerably reduces the number of accidents on the road.

3) Yesterday, Catalunya released a law for a higher fining of public "disturbance" and damaging such as: begging violently and annoyingly, doing graffiti, peeing etc. in public, prostitution less than 200m away from schools, using public transport without valid ticket etc.

Sleepy Pie, this law also applies to tourists, so if you need to pish, just enter a bar and don't get it OOT outside, okké? It may cost you up to € 6.000

biglaugh

Hmmm... They have just landed... I think I'd better get a bottle of JACK DANIELS for tonight - in case they come over... laugh

Or... two... lmao

Mind you... I still have some bottles left from last June... like the Triple Sec... IDEAL for Sleepy's LONG ISLAND ICE TEA...

Si - It's a real shame... cussing
You "ok" though?

Can't wait to see Sassy-Lisa. I haven't seen her since Ari's funeral.

Esa - Thank you for everything. No drinks ever without toasting, never. We'll meet again soon.

Love
Iz
