Well i spoke to the Beeb at about 10.50 and they said the guaranteed allocation hadn't been used up.... I got the site to work at 10.45 so fingers crossed!!!!
well we know now that it's selected randomly anyway but i doubt very much that there hadn't been 250 applications within 20 minutes lol. People on phones usually know nothing or very little about any internet ticket sales

the hitcher, there is no way of knowing when the BBC will be in touch with the winners. Wat we do know is that the BBC will contact at the latest, 4 days before the gig date.

btw - do you know whether you're allowed to take in bags on Mon nite at Brixton? i'm coming straight from work. do you think we'll be allowed to take photos?

So we've now moved from the Brixton thread to the BBC thread.

Finger nails and toe nails have gone, so i've now stacked up on a large box of toffees to chew on.

Mine didn't say that.

where does it say that?
Thanks for asking for 2 complimentary tickets to Coldplay Live At The BBC, which is being recorded at BBC Television Centre.

PLEASE NOTE THIS EMAIL CONFIRMS THE DETAILS OF YOUR APPLICATION. IT DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET TICKETS.

If you're successful, we'll send tickets to you before the show.

If you've applied for tickets for a show that's happening within the next four days, and you're successful, we'll call or email you to let you know that your name will be on the door. When you arrive, simply speak to a member of staff.

so it doesn't say that they'll let you know if you've won eithin 4 days of the application.
it just says that they'll let you know by email or phone if the show is within 4 days of application.

I'm confused :laugh3:

confused, but no doubt a little sigh of relief, knowing you could still be within a chance of winning 2 tickets.

cant find it on there, im am certain i read it somewhere, otherwise I wouldn't of said it.

Anyway they might of changed the wording because im sure it didn't say "Successful applicants will be given the date. Tickets will be allocated randomly. " before.

I'm not even sure if we'll get an email.

Because the gig happens outside of the four days mentioned in the email, i think people will just be sent tickets if they're lucky.
