"Lol" I'm not blaming anyone for getting cheap tickets, I'd do the same but if you'd personally shelled out extortionate prices and then saw this you'd feel slightly peeved too. I'm not blaming ticket buyers I'm blaming the company for ripping thousands of people off.

Too true. The really need a shake up, second year running where cheap tickets were given out a few days before the shows started. But the £80 original price was too high to begin with.

Anyone still trying to get tix, this link may work for you (straight to the ticket purhcase page, rather than the charitable giving page).

Yeah it was, but I paid it because I thought this would possibly be the only chance I'd get to see them. I had no idea they'd do other shows, back in February

I think UK shows in September or November is a possibility. They're in Ireland in Sept anyway.

So many angry people commenting on their Facebook page. This is a PR nightmare.

Wow. Just catching up with this. Sounds like a total disaster. So some people who donated are still unsure if they have tickets?? :? :( What a mess.

I'm not in the least bit bothered about whether other people get in for loads less than I paid in the pre-sale though. Life's too short. I'm going to have a wicked time. Makes zero difference to how much fun I'm going to have.

This is the attitude I'm trying to take. It was really annoying undoubtedly but I'm not going to let it take away from the event. Roll on Saturday!

Were they selling off Priority tickets for £12.50? That would really rub salt into the wound for me if they did. :(
