They are secondary sellers but their parent company is connected to a main seller I think.

.

They tweeted about Hyde park a while back and were made to retract it, so I doubt they would try again withuot any proof?

Yeah I meant announced this week for future dates, I'd imagine later on in the summer maybe to co-inside with an album release? or early/mid June if they are just doing the same format as these one

Don't be so quick... saw a tweet from Seatwave_help saying that doesn't sound like them, and asking the person was saying they'd seen the Seatwave tweet to source it.

Yeah, dont sell them until it's announced, it may just be Seatwave trying to get a few followers.

Untill its confirmed by 3EG or Kiran's Twitter dont take it as Gospel smile

I know guys but I have to put them up or send them to the venue by tomorrow to sell and if I don't go it's OK. I have made up with him from KOKO (which was my own doing with anxiety and not being tough enough to deal with over zealous fans) and had a great time on Saturday. I really am gonna just think .. he cannot leave without playin London again.... it won't happen pray

Not to be a killjoy, but I really can't see why he would announce more UK shows when at least two of the shows on the tour ended up with tickets being given away for free in substantial quantities in the street to passers by.

The only show for which demand was high was Leeds.

This. I think they shot themselves in the foot a little when they announced additional dates in these cities. Saying that - a few hundred tickets isn't that much compared to the size of the venues and were the show's really that well promoted? I didn't see any promotion. Who knows - but I wouldn't count on London shows (though I think in London, they'd be packed out).

London has a population of 8+ Million probs about 5 mil more than any of the other areas he has done/doing at the moment, so no doubt a larger proportion of fans who would go see him. It makes no sense what so ever to miss it out. Plus he sold a hell of alot of tickets in the space of two weeks considering at a silly price. if he were to do a few dates in london at a lower price like 21 nights he would sell more.

I genuinely think he's over saturated the UK now. I think a lot of it might be to do with the price, but for whatever reason it is - he's not selling out. I can't quite believe it really, but there we go. People must be nuts, don't like him, or simply can't afford the prices.

While there will be people in London who want to see him, I guess many of them will have travelled to these shows. Time will tell I guess, but I'd be surprised if management wanted to book large scale shows based on the ticket sales of the other dates.

Like fnksoul said - maybe there just wasn't enough time. These shows were announced two weeks ago! It's pretty admirable he's got this many people there with that amount of time.

Don't Worry, he'll play London at least 50 times before he steps foot in Atlanta, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Lakeland, or Birmingham(Alabama). He absolutely hates the south United States. I hope nobody reminds him that New Orleans is in the south, or he might cancel the Essence Festival show.

He did play Lakeland in 2002 and atlanta

Although I do think the price had something to do with venues not selling out, I also feel that it was the short space of time given to people to get themselves organised. If you think of his fans' demographic, most of us have work, kids and tight budgets, the majority of us can't drop everything to go to a show on a moments notice, maybe one or two thousand can which is why he can drop the smaller shows on us with no notice what so ever, but not when you are trying to sell over 30 thousand tickets as was the case in Manchester. That said, it looked 95% full at least on Saturday.
With more notice I think the dates would've sold out and I do think that if he did just one arena show in London, that would sell out rather than putting on two or three.

As people have said, I think it's a combination of time and price. For people in today's financial climate to be able to fork out £100+ short notice is asking a lot. I'm sure if all tickets we're say £75 max and over a month to sell then I'm sure most dates would sell out.
AND ON THE 7TH DAY OF THE 6TH MONTH..GOD CREATED FUNK!!!

I've been hoping for London arena dates since I missed out on the Hit 'n' Run dates earlier in the year (just couldnt drop things that quickly to get there)....an O2 reunion for all the Orgers who were there in 2007 for those life-changing shows would also be fantastic! Just please dont put the tickets on sale during the next two weeks when I'm away on hols!
