3rd Eye Girl comment on touts - then delete

Strange that 3rd Eye Girl Twitter account commented:

.

"NPGMC was a superb model for cutting out the scalpers for premium tickets. Also helped fans plan gigs"

.

DELETED WITHIN 30 seconds

.

I would upload the image but not sure how to

When the account wants to retweet someone's comment to them it seems that it is simply retyped or copy and pasted and tweeted so it looks as if it was an original tweet

I think they did this without realising it was negative then quickly deleted it

NPGMC was better? Yes, yes it was.

Deleted for truth, no doubt.

This tour might have been a media success, but even fans who got tickets must acknowledge it's been a bit of a mess (organisation-wise) and not the ideal way to do things. Travelled 300 miles down To London on the 13th. No show (Cheers Kiran!). Was prepped for Manchester, and missed out again. Just brilliant! confused

I've been to every tour in the UK since Lovesexy, except now this one. My how i tried.

I'm pleased for people who saw/will see a show. Would i be typing this if i had secured a ticket?, maybe not, but i'd still be thinking it.

It'd be nice to see some consistancy and professionalism next time round from those that Prince chooses to let run things. He needs better. Fans deserve better.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Dont worry my friend I reckon you will get a ticket to one of the gigs soon.

I was as frustrated as you until tonight when I managed to get a ticket for Friday in Manchester

It has been totally unorganised but it seems Prince wants it this way

Unfortunately, the touts are already out...all the online reselling sites have tickets starting at around £200+ right up to £1000!

First come, first served with proper security for crowd control works for me...

It was my tweet.

It worked then and it would work now. They could even amend it to allow pre-sales of tickets to members and then the rest be walk-ups. Either way it's a win-win. Prince gets cashflow, we get tickets and, more importantly, notice!

His fan base are getting older, a lot of us have kids, families, pets and all sorts of commitments that maybe we didn't have 10, 15 & 20 years ago.
