    apparently he's had to have a lot of medicals because of insurance risk he wont be fit for the shows (big payouts if he gets ill!!)
    Yes Your Dukeiness
  • orangetiggs
    i'm not sure if they will all be concerts but thats how long he has booked the o2 for, some will be set up days and then to take all the set down
  • bikerjodie
    I did love him as a performer years ago, but as i analyze it, i can't help but stop at the fact that he abused kids!
    I'd love to go but i personally feel as though i'd be condoning what he did.
    I just can't see past it and don't understand the hysteria but my view is my own.

    I hear he is not allowed to play stadiums that are within a certain distance of schools (for obvious reasons)

    Tickets are 50/65/75 which is a fantastic price really.

    I'm pretty sure the major places to get tickets will be ticketmaster and seetickets. o2 usually run their presales through ticketmaster.

    o2 arena has both seating and standing. The stage is in the middle, so theres no back as such. Good seats everywhere really.

    Just caught a (quick) glimpse of his press conference on the news. Was that really him?? His voice is way deeper and he looks fatter In fact, he looked just like that English bloke who's made a living out of impersonating him. My conspiracy theory-laden mind is working overtime here.

    Saw him at Wembley last time he did it (yonks ago) it was awesome, we sat a million miles away (i think we had the oxford seats!) but never forget the night.
    Saw The Boss and Eagles at the O2 both end stages both great. Floor seats for the Eagles were 1000 times better than the "Gods" seats for Brucey. Its way high and you end up watching the screens. Pay up and get those lower tiers people, its worth the extra effort.

    If there are going to be a load more nights added, be careful. Promoters usually, in this instance, hold back the best nights, i.e. Friday and Saturday, for the second or even third wave of release. Reason being they figure the reall fans who bought maybe a Tuesday night in the first wave will then also skint themselves to buy the more 'prestigious' nights in the second wave. Hence doubling sales. Crafty people, promoters, and ruthless.
