It's not just the password that we need. It's some more information on what these tickets are if we are going to buy yet another set of tickets for nights where we already have tickets we can't sell! Really losing patience here. mad

I've registered as a new member of the 3121.com as I'm not a former NPGclub member, maybe those are a priority??

They all seem to be Block F1 and collect at Box office - so should stop scalpers. I could have had Row A but I'm already going too often, plus F1 is behind the symbol, could be a really bad view...

In fact, F1 is also not actually around the symbol, but behind another floor block. Check the viagogo seating chart, it's much clearer:

I'm going to give it a miss.

Got my password, tried to book tickets, wasn't happy with the seats (at back of stage), tried to re-book and it won't let you re-use the password??! WTF?

So, in other words: by the looks of it, even if you do not actually BUY tickets, you can only use the password once. omfg Is that right? Even if you try another date?

I've tried a few other dates and it lets me go through the various stages but, as soon as I get to the end, it says no tickets available. sigh So either they're all sold out already, they're not on sale yet or you can literally only view the tickets they offer you once and you either take them or no more password. sigh

I can't believe the way the tickets for this tour have been issued. It has been a farce, frankly. disbelief

First tickets go on sale - you get the upper tier, maybe lower tier.

Then more tickets go on sale - for the lower tier.

The the VIP/Gold seats.

Now the NPGMC seats.


Doesn't it stand to reason that the fans are obviously going to try and get the best tickets available, i.e. near the stage? But, at the same time, they know how quickly these shows might sell out so they try to snap up tickets at the first opportunity. Except you end up buying tickets right at the back of the arena, then a chance in the middle of the arena, then some at the front when those are released. nuts

So you've either got to put up with the tickets you originally bought - and be right at the back of the arena - or buy ticket after ticket until you get near the stage?? disbelief These seats have obviously been retained for fan members... why are they only releasing them now, less than 2 weeks before the shows start? After fans have already bought tickets?

I'm sure Prince isn't personally responsible for this mess but, whoever is - sheesh - it doesn't take a genius to work out how to make sure fans aren't fleeced over and over again. Unless that's the intention. confused

Don't get me wrong, I really, really don't want to whinge about it. I realise there will be many fans who won't get the opportunity to see him at these shows and I had the fan benefits on the ONA tour. I am just happy I have got tickets, full stop. But the way this has been organised is absolutely ridiculous. A complete mess. disbelief

I'm loving the new look of 3121.com. I've re-registered, updated my information, got confirmation email and password, no problems.

Now all I need is about $10,000 so I can go and spend a week in London to check out Prince. sad

Donations greatly appreciated!!! biggrin

I saw this this morning - registered at 10.30am and got a confirmation of the registraion in 10 mins (re-registration really as I was in NPGMC!)

Got a password for ticket purchase on the email at 15.10 - so it took not quite 5 hours to come through.

Having said that - I dont think I will use it. I am going on the first night Cruise and have tickets for the aftershow - so dont want to risk spending more money to get worse seats. We are then on holiday for three weeks - so wont have a lot of money to go to any of the other gigs.

Nice to see that the NPGMC members haven't been completely forgotten though. Will be interesting to see what else comes out of 3121.com....

The way the ad is written 'collect at box office and then be escorted inside' sounds very much like the 2002 shows with the Soundcheck for fanclub members.

Just hoping....

Or does anybody have a definite tip-off that this might happen?

You're right ... they've totally arsed it up. Can only assume they hoped to sell all the floor seats at VIP prices, but since they didn't they're now selling them to club members.

Club tickets SHOULD have been up first (or at least second, after O2 customer pre-sale).

You don't put your NPGMC password into TM. 3121 sends you a code by email.
