Spot On Harvey!!!

FAW’s on have changed to reflect the touts:

Updated 2nd OCTOBER 2007

1. I didn’t win but I have obtained a passcode that does not belong to me can I use it?

All bookings will be cross checked against the details of the registration that was issued the passcode and if the details do not match then the booking will be cancelled and the tickets returned to the ballot.v

2. My friend registered for me / my friend won but he doesn’t have a credit card / my friend wants me to have their tickets is that ok?

No, only the winners of the public ballot can purchase the tickets as this is the only way to ensure that all fans have an equal and fair chance of obtaining tickets.

3. What will happen to the unused passcode?

It will become invalid

4. What happens to any remaining unsold tickets?

They will be offered out by random selection from the remaining applicants who registered.

5. When will the second round of tickets be offered?

Once the first round of winning applicants have completed their purchases and all invalid orders have been cancelled.

Please keep checking this website for updates.

6. Can I still register for the ballot?

Unfortunately the ballot has now closed and no further registrations can be accepted.

7. I accidentally registered more than once but I do not want to be disqualified what can I do?

Only additional registrations were removed from the final list so your original registration has remained in the ballot.

8. If I am successful, how will I be contacted?

The ballot has now been drawn and the successful applicants will receive an email in the next 24 hours. This email will contain all the information you need to purchase your tickets.

9. What if I require disabled access?

If you a successful applicant and require disabled access the email as mentioned above will contain all the information you require to arrange accessible seating.

10. How long will I have to pay for my tickets?

You will have 72 hours.

11. How many tickets can I buy and how much are they?

Ticket purchases will be restricted to no more than 2 per successful registrant and all tickets will be £125 plus booking fee.

12. How will you use the information I provided?

In accordance with our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy

13. What is the Ahmet Education Fund?

The Ahmet Education Fund is a charitable fund which is administered by The City Charity Trust (charity number 259420) the purpose of which is to establish university educational bursaries.

This outcome is spot on!

I registered correctly, once and didnt rely on registering other people!
I have means of payment for myself.
Sounds like exactly what it should be to me.

alot of the people i have seen moaning have been people who either payed for passcodes and will now be stripped of their tickets, and/or got passcodes from signing up other people!

Statement from Harvey Goldsmith: Event Promoter

The random ticket selection has taken place and successful applicants have been notified that they can now purchase their tickets.

Each ticket holder has an individual pass code that has been issued by Ticket Master, that pass code and the name of the applicant are married together.

Consequently if the pass code is sold on to another party those tickets will be invalid.

Unfortunately a small number of unscrupulous people have decided to take advantage of the fact that they had been awarded the opportunity to purchase tickets.

It is even more unfortunate that eBay and a number of ticket scalping sites have chosen to take advantage of this situation.

Please note that unless the ticket, the code and correct identification match, those tickets will be invalid.

Anyone who chooses to purchase tickets in this way will lose their money!

We urge all fans who wish to come to the concert to sit tight; as the tickets are cancelled they will be re issued at the next random selection of registrations.

Basically, for those not coming from ebay...

I have posted an item on ebay, trying to warn potential buyers of the tickets away from the touts for the reasons listed below.

the link to the ebay page is as follows:

please try and help spread the word to unsuspecting bidders, that their money could be in danger.

An email from The O2 about passcodes...

If someone is selling the passcode there is a good chance it will be
discovered and cancelled, or that you will have trouble using the
passcode to buy tickets. Ticket buyers need to provide photo ID and this
will not match up with the name on the record if you buy your code off

I wouldn’t do it, it’s a lot of money to risk.

Peninsula Square


Seems pretty cut and dry to me.

What Did I Tell You?

Someone on’s messageboard posted the following:

I called Harvey’s office and they have confirmed that when you go to get your tickets, your code will bring up the name registered in the ballot. And if that name is not on a picture I.D (Don’t bother with fakes…It has to be a passport e.t.c) then it’s tough luck. In other words, if you didn’t get the email…you’re not going. The codes on ebay might work, but they will not get you into the gig.

DONT BUY PASSCODES… it wont work!

wait until the second ballot!

If enough people Do NOT buy passcodes in the next 72 hours, then their passcodes will LAPSE and the passcodes will be RE-ALLOCATED… which means you have more chance at getting a passcode without spending stupid amounts of money, from a dubious source (such as ebay) and possibly getting ripped off by the same person selling the same code over and over (the codes work once only!!).

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t buy these peoples passcodes, as if they don’t want to go to the gig they shouldn’t have registered, the scum, touts!

If they don’t sell them, they will likely not use them as it is nigh on impossible to sell the actual tickets/wristbands to get into this gig. so let them waste their ebay fees!

Real Zeppelin fans deserved these tickets, not the fucking tout wankers that would sooner try and make money off Zeppelin fans by selling anything they can from the email on ebay!

Please take this in and don’t give in to the temptation of buying passcodes from ebay!
