Just in case you hadn't seen my previous post under the 'Plectronica' SOLD OUT thread:

Tickets for the 70th birthday event went on sale around midday today but, astonishingly, have completely sold out by the end of the afternoon! :shock:

For those of you who didn't manage to grab themselves a ticket in time, there is still a wee glimmer of hope: Event organiser Ian Haydock is going to try to contact the venue tomorrow and see if it is possible to add one or two more rows of seats to the auditorium.

If this is possible, there may be a handful of further tickets come available, but we have no guarantees that the extra seating can be put in place at this point in time. However, if the capacity can be increased a little, information will be posted on here as soon as we know the score. Stay tuned! ;-)

Quick couple of questions generally how many does the venue hold and do you think the live sets will be recorded fora video
and shown at a later date or packaged for a dvd release cheers Antman

Hi Bill,

Indeed astonishing!

Is there a reserve listing in the event the additional rows of seats become available? I'm gutted I didn't see this until now and have possibly missed out. I was there for your 60th! If there is a reserve list, please put me down for two tickets please.

Fingers crossed.

All the best,

Douglas

I didn't read my email yesterday; I was busy at work. I saw the Plectronica notice this morning but when I clicked on the link to book, I was 'gob smacked' to see it was sold out. The wife and I have been to the last two Leeds gatherings and were looking forward to this. Have people 'block booked' several tickets. I hope that some extra space can be created. I am right disappointed. After all the build up to the event for it to sell out so quick.

I've had some news from event organiser Ian Haydock today. He has managed to speak with the venue's management about possibly adding some extra seating but, I'm afraid it's a no go. It seems we're right up against the fire regulation limits. They simply won't allow us to add any more people.

I guess the only chance is that there may be one or two cancellations, in which case the Bookitbee website who are handling ticket sales will automatically place any cancelled tickets back on sale. However, I think the way it works is that there is a waiting list and any new tickets will be allocated accordingly. The chances of cancellations are very slim, but you never know.

As I said in an earlier post, I was astonished at the speed that this event sold out. I didn't expect that at all and I know that many fans have missed out. We have tried our best to add a few more seats but the venues regulations are against us. Someone suggested adding an extra date but the logistics are not favourable for that. The following day is a Sunday and the venue isn't open. Doing it again on a different day would involve getting the crew and team back together, moving equipment out and back, not to mention the high cost of venue hire, staffing it and so on.

I didn't expect that so many people would want to attend what is, basically, not a full band, old songs type of performance. I imagined that it would only attract those who knew my more recent instrumental work and who would look forward to that type of performance from me. I'm now concerned that there may be a number of people attending who haven't been fully aware of the 'ambient' nature of my recent performances and who will be expecting a retro/revival show. It seems that there are a lot of people from the various Facebook pages who may be coming but haven't really followed my musical trajectory. In which case, they'll be disappointed. Shouts for 'Ships In The Night' will fall on deaf ears I'm afraid, especially my completely deaf right ear! :wink: :lol:

I've just been to the bookitbee website. I don't see any ability to be added to a waiting list. If anyone can point the way I'd appreciate it :D
