    i love their music but i agree that its an acquired taste.
    depends on how you define 'better bands' i suppose.
    I can't resist the urge to say; anything is better than Bmth

    wish i could but no one will come up with me now.
    they're worried they wont get a ticket after queuing for a while.
    :cry2:
    touts will just shout around outside the venue = no queuing. persuade a friend to go with you and if all else fails; pub!

    Depends, I have been to gigs where the tickets were £20 and all the touts were asking for £60. I know someone stupid enough to buy one as well.
    Once the gig has started they often sell them off a lot cheaper though, you can get some good bargains

    my mum called him and threatened to take police action.
    the guy said he will refund my account before 3pm today.
    i've learned my lesson though.
    although i don't get to see Bring Me The Horizon tonight :'(
    i'm actually so gutted.

    Nonsense. The girl made a mistake, we all do. I am sure you are far from perfect, lesson is a life, and she will have learnt from her mistake. Don't be such a self righteous prat and get over it.

    Gumtree is a hotbed for scammers, wouldnt trust anyone on their.
    Did you get the money back? you can count yourself lucky if you do.

    Once a bank transfer is gone its gone, you dont even need to have an address so he could have given you a fake.

    The other thing to be careful of it fake websites that set up to sell gig tickets of specificfestivals that then rip of off - its quite common for them to use websites that sound official like officialreadingticets.com etc

    I would rather let the £40 go than admit it was for a Bring me the Horizon gig. I had the misfortune of seeing them supporting Lost Prophets and they are by far the most self indulgent screaming bunch of trend following penises I have ever seen.
    Lol. I think having the potential displeasure of seeing bring me the horizon live would put me off from any further lost prophet gig :p:
