It says 15:00h at seetickets.


Ok, so the price is 45 GBP for a ticket. Is that the total price or will there be more costs added?

And how will the booking work?

Can I choose a place or just say how many tickets I want and then see afterwards where they are??

I read in a thread about the O2 gig that people didn't know where their tickets will be at the moment of buying...


Sorry for so many questions!


Its £45 + booking fees. so probably nearer £50.


the arena tickets were £46ish after booking fees.



I'm hoping it'll be standing this time. At least I hope it is. Can't fill a football pitch or cricket ground with chairs, can they?


can't see the cricket club or Wembley being happy with that many chairs on the pitch, more possibility of the protective stuff ripping and damaging the turf

Wellllllll I found this video


Take That fans braved freezing temperatures to queue for tickets overnight at Lancashire County Cricket Club's Old Trafford ground.




and then this


250,000 to watch Take That at Old Trafford


A Quarter of a Million Take That fans will welcome the boys home during five sold out concerts at Old Trafford Cricket Ground next June.



Take That, Britain’s favourite boy band recently announced a monster 2009 stadium tour called “The Circus – Live”, which will include five sold out nights in their home town of Manchester at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, on Tuesday 23 June, Wednesday 24 June, Friday 26 June, Saturday 27 June and Sunday 28 June, 2009.


Tickets for the concerts went on sale at 9am on Friday 31st October, and officially become the fastest selling UK tour in history, selling over 600,000 tickets in less than 5 hours.

Lancashire County Cricket Club’s Commercial Director Geoff Durbin said; “Securing such a fantastic act as Take That is a major coup for us and considering their huge popularity and also the Manchester connection, I am sure this will be one of the hottest tickets for a long time.


“No doubt many Take That fans will have enjoyed Robbie Williams’ memorable sell-out shows here in 2001, when he played to 150,000 over three nights, and I am sure his former band-mates will be looking to repeat the success of those shows next June. In the last eight years we have played host to many of the top names in the music world – Bruce Springsteen, Oasis, David Bowie, Morrissey, Foo Fighters and Radiohead to name a few, and we are very proud and excited to have been chosen to host Take That’s shows which confirms our reputation as one of the top outdoor concert venues in the UK.”


During September and October, Lancashire installed a new drainage system and outfield, but the club has already ensured that the protection of the new field is a priority during any concerts held in 2009, as Durbin explained; “From a cricket perspective, we will be taking every possible precaution to protect our pitch, with additional protective covering for the whole outfield, and this combined with a new fast-draining outfield is intended to reduce to an absolute minimum any problems in respect of our matches.”


Peter Marron, Lancashire’s Head Groundsman explains further; “To limit any damage that maybe caused during these concerts, the promoter, SJM Concerts, will be covering the entire field with heavy-duty flooring which is used at other major sporting venues that have a similar ground profile including Twickenham and Wembley.”


Take That fans braved freezing conditions to get their tickets


Dedicated Take That fans made sure they were not caught out in the rush for tickets for the band’s Manchester mega shows – by camping out overnight at Old Trafford.


About 100 people set up tents on the grass verge outside Lancashire County Cricket Club, with the numbers growing to around 500 when the Ticket Office opened at 9am.





From what I remember of the emails they sent, they initially had 2 dates, and added the other 3 as the tickets flooded away

It will be standing for sure ^^ Can't have so many seats on the grass and that's how it is in show in Europe, at least I think no...?

I mean, in France, it's always like that: tribunes=seated, in front of the stage, on the field=standing. We're real troopers for waiting for hours to get as close as possible next to the stage XD It's madness!! But the atmosphere is pretty incredible and it's easier to jump and dance!!
