I saw her last year in Brixton too (didn't know you were there) she was great. I too have tickets but for her performance of 'Horses' with the great John Cale. I am also going to a couple of the other 'Meltdown' nights, the 'Songs of Innocence' one with Patti, Sinead O'Connor and lots of others and the 'Stand Bravely Brothers' one, the songs of Brecht and Weill. I'm expecting good nights from all three. To be honest I think I could have gone to all those 'Meltdown' gigs but had to draw the line somewhere.

Ticketmaster hadtickets at lunchtime but, sadly, all seem to be gone now. What can I say? I'm sure the Steve Earle event will be excellent.

Richard's appearance is just a reading and book signing though isn't it? I love Richard Hell but given the choice between him reading and the 'Songs of Innocence' evening at the same event, I went for the latter.

Didn't fancy then'Songs of Innocence' event on that night then...I'm a big William Blake fan so anything called 'Songs of Innocence' would attract me!
As for the Television tickets I'm going to wait till Bristol Ticket Shop have them, they don't charge the ridiculous fees the big agencies like Ticketweb charge.

Hi Steve64, just read your posting about the Horses gig. I remember
a posting on the official Love messageboard from one of the more frequent contributors - possibly JohnE - who found that any unsold tickets for the disabled at the RFH were released for sale to able bodied prospective punters just before the start of gigs. If you want to see Patti 'n John sufficiently badly then try turning up at the RFH booking office on the night, queue and try your luck. Please don't curse me if you do and it does'nt work out, but I reckon that it could be worth a crack. Good luck if you do.

He's right, I've seen those front row seats, usually reserved for the disabled, fill with punters in the last minute who have all queued for the remaining tickets. Course, I guess with a gig like Patti's 'Horses' one there'll be plenty of people after them and it's a long journey, for anyone who lives outside of London, to make on a maybe.
