Ultravox VIP Soundcheck and Meet & Greet
Live Nation have kindly allowed us to make up the numbers, wherever the Barclaycard Unwind promotion did not sell out. This means that we have a limited number of Soundcheck / Meet & Greets (but no gig tickets) to give away, to all UK shows EXCEPT London. All you need to do is send an email to email@example.com containing the venue of your choice, your name(s), email address and telephone / mobile numbers. A tel or mobile number is very important for the first show (Birmingham) on Tuesday, as the winners will not be drawn until Monday morning!
CLOSING DATE: Sunday 4th April, 6pm GMT. Winners will be drawn from a hat. Or something!
Birmingham - 5 places
Liverpool - 14 places
Manchester - 7 places
Oxford - 2 places
Bristol - 12 places
Ultravox London ticket competition
Live Nation have also given us 25 pairs of tickets to the London Hammersmith Odeon show on Sunday 11th April, to give away to the first 25 people that make a PayPal donation towards the running costs of this site. We don't know where these seats will be situated, but it will likely be in the Circle.
All you need to do is make your donation (anywhere from £5 upwards) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing your PayPal payment ID, both ticket-holder names, a contact email address and telephone / mobile number. Tickets can be picked up at the Box Office on the night, under the ticket-holder names you have specified.
CLOSING DATE: Thursday 8th April, 6pm GMT (unless tickets run out sooner).
We will post ticket winners on this thread in the Forum, so that you know if you have won tickets and when they have run out.
