Well, how did people do this morning?

I am a little bit in tears as I was on the booking page bang on 9am and got A2 Row 1 Seats 25 - 26! but my credit card limit got exceeded and my tickets were lost!!!! NO!

I looked and my credit was too low by 25Eur!!

After this..and still shaking I managed to get A4 Row 10 Seats 1-2

Oh boy I need to lie down....

Hit the presales already, on Friday, and got A2, Row 13, Seat 19. I guess the system really did consider row 13 "better" than row 1 because it expects people to sit down. If you sit down in first row, you don´t see that much.

How did Baboon Bro do?

Well, I'm sure everyone will stand up! I will!! All the UK and US seated concerts everyone stands up anyway.

For sure. I for one am not going to sit down when the Stones are on. Unless the stewards tell folks to sit down?

Anyway I am glad I am FOS on Keef´s side. All the previous concerts I went to (Helsinki 1998, Helsinki 2003 and Bergen 2006) I was on Keef´s side - near the catwalk smiling smiley

Hello Finnstone! Do you belive in magic? This could be worth a Lapin Kulta

Re: Helsinki

Date: March 28, 2007 12:08

Well I'm still a bit sick I lost those front row Keef tickets..Yes I do need a cold Lapin Kulta right now thank you!

I hope whoever got those tickets thanks me for messing up my credit card.

Oh well row 10 centre with other IORR's is not too bad!

So does it look like all pre-sale tickets are situated A2 & A4 rows 10–15.
I will be there A4 row 14, with my 10 years old nephew. I hope he could see something as well.
Waiting for a summer...

I think sales are going well..just looked and I can only find pretty bad seats.

There must be more than one support act as it says the first performer due on at 18:30.

Was HIM going to support Metallica? Heard something on the radio, but the volume was so low I wasn´t able to hear the whole sentence?

Keith spends a lot of time on Ronnie´s side,but Ronnie "never" visits Keit´s side.
"Keith´s side" sounds glorius, but there is more action in Ronnie´s side.

Yep, I think Helsinki show will be sold out very fast. I got ticket from section D so I'm bit too far away from the stage and you guys. It would be great to meet other IORR -members for example at some pub before the show...??

YES, is this now on Metallica's website:
"HIM will be opening the Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Moscow shows."

Got row 5 in A2, I'm quite pleased. It'll be the only concert for me this summer. After last year's fiasco I don't dare to invest on more shows.

Thanks, it would have been very good opening for our boys, too.. Never seen them alive and I like their music

Wow, I think the show really is almost sold out!!!!

Well done Finland!

I must say I didn't think it would happen but the floor seats system seems to be selling well - there are only really bad seats at the back to be found!

In fact, there is still an available seat in A4 which is center/Ronnie's side. I'm trying to find another Keith side seat but those seem to be gone.

Thanks for askin,Keeper. Nah; I might just not go to Helsinki.
No used international web purchaser; I shivered in shock from the figures:
"32 Euro" transaction fee.. No way in hell I'd pay that!!!!!!!!!!

We'll see; I may search for ticket to buy from some good Finn's hand.
I think the value will decrease after Petersburg has been released.

Whoah, pretty pricey. Hope you luck out in getting one later on though. I hear janrichards at Stonesvikings.com bought a whole bunch of tix. Might want to contact him for one?

Oh Baboon, seems you gonna miss them again. If I remember correct, you've said you've never seen them live yet?
If you don't get'em now, I think you've missed them forever.

Re: Helsinki

I am a little confused. I bought a ticket in the presale --identified as A-2 row 11. NO seating chart available then.

Today I see a seating chart and there are two sections identified as A-2.

A-2 Ketta (on the floor--FOS) and Section A-2 in the lower stand section.

Today in the general sale, I found A-4 Ketta and it was shown as a FOS ticket on the seating chart. The section A-2 tickets were in the stadium seats.

Just curious when ya'll say you have A-2 or A-4 is that on the pitch or in the stadium seats???
