    OK so I want to go and see Florence and the Machine on the 18th of September, I went to go and buy tickets and it says "PRE SALE ALLOCATION SOLD OUT". That means more tickets will be available, right? But will they only be available on the night? Or will I have to go and get them from the box office?

    From my experiance promoters set asside a certain amount of tickets for the pre sale (usually 40% - 80%) which can change depending on demand and then sell a certain amount on the night (or as you said at the box office). Though this might be different if it's a big event, im mostly thinking in terms of smaller sized gigs 100 - 400 capacity type ones. It couldn't do any harm messaging the promoter or checking around the internet/ other ticket sites. hope that helps

    I usually use Ticketline to buy tickets in advance, they're information is likely better kept up to date than the bands main site, though looking now they have tickets set as "Please try later" which I'd guess means they will have a second lot or they don't have any tickets currently but it's not sold out.

    I'm in the same boat except for the Birmingham concert on the 20th. I can only really buy them online as I'm in Ireland. The pre sale allocation release date was the 23rd of June. Any ideas how one could find out when they're releasing more tickets? I've signed up to the artists site, but not sure if that's enough.

    Really don't wanna give touts £50 for tickets that cost £13.
