Never been to Europe and my wife and I are thinking of just saying "what the hell" and doing it!
That sounds super fun. Absolutely do-able.

Anyone else finding tickets have rocketed in price? I remember it was 65EU for most tickets in 2015 - they're all now like 80EU...

    aaaaaaaaaand I'm going to Italy instead. £40-50 per ticket, versus £80-90 in Germany. Worth the extra road trip for sure!

    London x2, Amsterdam, Padova, Bologna and Milan

    40 euro/ticket for GA in Bologna and Milan,but they wanted another 40 to ship it to my country, and had no e-ticket option. So I went with 'pick up at venue before the show". Hope I don't get screwed over somehow cause this would be the worst trip ever.

    they will be at the venue, but if you're planning on getting first in line, you'll have to leave the line, and sometimes the booth doesn't open until they've started letting people in.

    they charged me £20 to ship to england for the three italian venue tickets - where are you from?

    Bulgaria. But yes, the doors open at 6:30 and it says tickets are handed out an hour before the show, i.e. 7pm, so I'll have to drop off the line. But that's fine with me, I was not gonna get in first anyway because my wife will be with me, and she is not a super fan, and would want to walk around the city or go grab something to eat. Then, of course, she would complain that she is too far away from the scene and not able to see much. That's how it's been every time anyway, I'm used to it.

    Berlin - two spare tickets.

    Here in the UK I got over excited about a Saturday gig in Berlin, bought 2 tickets and due to a mess up with schedules we can't go. (Instead doing Padua in Italy the next weekend..). Which leaves me with two Berlin tickets going spare. If anyone wants them of knows anyone else who might like them (face value obvs) then please reply . Thanks.

    Yeah - I went for Berlin and luckily have friends over there so got the ticket sent to a Berlin address for next to nothing instead if taking the 40 Euro post to GB option.
    Although have now discovered a double booking for the Berlin weekend so I need to sell the tickets on...
    Italy (Padua the next weekend) instead. Cheaper tickets and cheaper postage. Looks a lovely town too with Venice and Verona nearby.
    Where in Yorkshire are you? I'm in Leeds.

    I'm going to be in Europe for my 30th, and both Milan and Lisbon fall within the time I'm there. I hadn't planned on Portugal or Italy, but from a little reading, it sounds like Lisbon would be awesome. From what I see, they have a large standing GA--has anyone been to this venue that can comment? I was at Dublin in 2015 and 90% of the crowd stayed seated--I'd rather not even go if Lisbon will be like that.

    The Altice Arena in Lisbon is... ok. From previous experiences, if you’re standing towards the back, the acoustics aren’t great...
    The crowd on the other hand, is amazing!! Never been to any shows in Italy, where I hear they’re quite lively too, but I’d risk saying that the enthusiasm will be the best you’ll get in Europe!
    Full disclosure, I am Portuguese, so slightly biased...

    Thanks! If I can convince the guys to spend less time in Amsterdam, I think we may add Lisbon to the list. How difficult is it to get towards the front? Do I need to get in line 12 hours ahead of time like the gorge?

    If by towards the front you mean right on the rail, then I’d assume you have to be in line a few hours before. If you’re only aiming to be close-ish to the stage, then getting in the venue 1-2 hours before show time should be more than enough to get a good spot.
    I tend to go with a big group (10-15 of us), so we usually stick around the middle of the standing area, but not too far back, otherwise (as I mentioned before) the acoustics won’t be great...
    I think you won’t regret seeing them in Lisbon!

    How does everyone think these are selling?

    I was suprised to see such a difference in capacity. I'm doing Londonx2, Berlin (3000) and Copenhagen (16000).

    I'd have thought the London dates especially would've gone quick, but there seems to be tickets available for all of them.

    Ticket purchased for Lisbon. We land at 2:35 PM day of show--ideally staying nearby. Hopefully a meetup before!

    Flight delay.

    Jet lag is a little rough too, unless you are use to traveling transatlantic/pacific.

    We'll be coming from Amsterdam and staying ~5 min walk from Altice--so hoping none of that is a factor!

    Gotcha.

    Still run into a flight delay issue, but since you are inter EU, should be able to scramble in case of an emergency! No issues with jet lag so that's good.

    Eh, even with a pretty substantial delay, they'll still make the show. I wouldn't stress about that.

    Re: *** Official Europe 2019 ***

    Hi all .. my planning for the tour has changed...

    I have two Dusseldorf tickets , two Berlin tickets 2 Vienna tickets and 1 Amsterdam ticket I need to sell. Face value. The Düsseldorf and Berlin tickets are hard tickets. I am in the US and would have to get those tickets to you when I get to Germany. The Amsterdam and Berlin tickets I have in an email.
    Please PM me if you are interested.

    I also need two tickets to the Munic show. I am willing to do a trade Munich for Düsseldorf also when I arrive in Munich.
    Thank you.
    Please respond if you can help in any way.

    Anyone familiar with the venue in Amsterdam? It looks like all GA? I will be flying into London and am thinking about flying in a day early to catch a show.

    I’ve never been to a European show. Do people line up for GA as early as we do in the States? We have a pair of GA for Forum Karlin in Prague. Need to figure out how to plan the day leading up to the show.
