Well, it took me over 45 minutes ....

.... battling with engaged phone lines at 4 different ticket outlets, losing patience with 3 different websites which were either waiting, down or simply not responding, but I finally managed to secure 2 tickets to see Mr Clapton at the Royal Albert Hall in May of next year.

Rubs hands in glee. ;-)))

I would wait until they are in your grubby fist before you celebrate.

Perhaps I should have said "Rubs perfectly clean hands in glee".

I hope you have a great time! It is just the way some ticket outlets have been critisised recently and I hope your tickets arrive safe.

Ebay is already flooded with them, £100 is the cheapest!

It was a perfectly legit ticket outlet, being one of the four through which the Royal Albert Hall is making tickets available.

Surprise, surprise!

A perfect example of prats buying tickets merely to sell on at a profit when they had absolutely no intention of going to the gig.

It also provides the answer as to why the websites and phone lines were clogged up from just before 9a.m. this morning when tickets went on sale.

Much congrats, I imagine that should be some show.

Nice when it all goes right for a change.

Met him once - when we closed the rock club at The Star Tavern at Croydon because of complaints about the noise. We had Cream, Jimmy Hendrix and Zoot Money as our last three gigs - that was noisy!

Clapton is God
Probably the best rock guitarist in the world.

Hope you have a wonderful time. Last time I saw him live you thought he was going to fall off the stage at any second. He now proves you don't need drugs or alcohol to create that perfect sound. The best talent, the best guitar, the best sound. He has them all.
