Found 27th Feb 2008
On The eve of releasing their eagerly anticipated new studio LP Accelerate, R.E.M have announced four outdoor summer stadium shows for August. Here are the dates and venues:
24 August - MANCHESTER Lancashire Country Cricket Club
25 August - CARDIFF Millennium Stadium
27 August - SOUTHAMPTON Rosebowl
30 August - TWICKENHAM Stadium

A pre-sale started at 9.00 AM 27/02/08 but still lots of good tickets available so beat the touts and get your tickets before they go on general sale.

The touts won't make any money on this....for once supply exceeds demand.

Hot Hot Hot!
Purchased 4 tickets for Rose Bowl - See you all there!!!!!!

More Dates to be added

Doubt there's going to be more dates. They're not going to sell ~200,000 tickets. Worth noting that the fan club got the good tickets yesterday anyway as with the Royal Albert Hall gig, and that fan club members who bought standing get to go into the venue before anyone else as they'll get wristbands.

You'd be better off on this one waiting for Ebay the week before the gig - bound to be bargains to be had.

...or wait until 3-6 days before the concert to get below face value on ebay -- always works for me. It's amazing how quickly prices for tix crash just before the event - prob because people are afraid to take a chance with delivery. But if the seller has good feedback and promises spec delivery next day (check in advance through 'contact seller') there should be no problem. I've done this for about 10 big concerts in the last couple of years, and in each case the tickets were selling way above face value until then. Just a thought... (and in this way, REALLY beat the touts by making them lose money!)

Which is exactly what I said in the post above yours.

Fortunately armchair touts are idiots. They don't realise that they shouldn't be buying for huge gigs, they should be buying for bands in venues that are a little too small for them so supply exceeds demand rather than the other way round. Long may it remain so.

Is only scottish concert gonna be T in the Park ???
I have tickets but would like to know if there are more concerts scheduled.If anyone knows please help

Unlikely, they'll probably have signed a deal to not do any more shows in Scotland apart from T.
