Ticket sold & picked up/paid for by buyer. Thanks - "Scarlet Mist".
For those of you that are as vehemently anti-scalping as I am, and despise the Stubhubs/Viagogos/Getmeins and Seatwaves of this world, then if you're not familiar with Scarlet Mist
... I can recommend you try it. I used it on a few occasions years ago, and then it unfortunately closed down because the person who created it and maintained the site developed a health condition and was forced to shut it down. However, someone else took it over, and so it is back up and running again, which is great news - at least in my opinion.
I'm still hacked off that the Clapton gig at Hyde Park clashes with the Stones in Warsaw, but hey ho ... such is life !
And speaking of being hacked off, I was even more hacked off when after buying the sodding Clapton ticket from Amazon tickets on 29th November 2017 (yes, you DID
read that correctly - 2017
) - it took until 18th June 2018
to receive this (below) ....Hello,

A fat lot of use that was, seeing as I was due to leave the UK on the morning of 21st June, as I was doing the Stones shows in Berlin, Marseille, Prague, and Warsaw, with no return to home in the UK in the interim. I tried my hardest to explain to both Amazon Tickets AND
British Summer Time/AEG that I was simply not in a position to take receipt of the ticket if they insisted on sending it to my home address, but would they help ? Not a chance. No possibility of mail re-direct to a different address, no possibility of arranging to have someone other than me pick it up from the box office, no possibility of anything in fact - other than sending it to my home address. About as uncooperative as an organisation could be, I could scarcely believe it. F***ing British Summer Time or AEG or whatever the hell they call themselves these days. I have hated them since the infamous "seating plan" fiasco for the Stones at Hyde Park in 2013, and they give me good reason to still hate them today !! Ugh .... !!
