What i should also mention is that £180 is also subject to a £7 booking fee and £5.20 postage.

What a rip off!
Ok headline acts might cost that, but it takes 7quid for whole of 3mins in taking your details. Then cheekie F****s decide to charge you 5.20 postage. Come on record delivery is only about 1.50 or so

Getr charge 1 or 1.5 a bottle of water. 3.50 for a pint. Chips probably 2quid, burgers i hates to guess.

Stay at home HUK memebers. This isnt a deal, it's daylight robbery!

£200 (give or take) is a lot of money still. I remember when I started going ten years ago. Tickets for about £85.

BUT.... there are those out there who wish to attend and those who are unable to get themselfs a ticket. While £200 isn't considered a good deal by most of us, its still a lot cheaper than the £300+ the tickets go for on ebay, seatwave, etc...

also add that horrible walk from the train station

Youre being way too harsh, this is the going rate for the tickets and its a sold out event. Ebay tickets usually go for a lot more than this so thanks for posting, a couple friends of mine might be able to go now that youve posted this heads up.

It cost me at the post office £5 to send tickets recorded. So its not that extertionate.

No it didn't, a 1.2kg package sent first class recorded is around £5. Recorded for tickets in a small enevelope cost £1.40.

It will probably by special delivery, your only insured up to about 30 quid on normal recorded delivery...

For gods sake, sold out tickets - so what if they are £15 more than the previous price. This saves people being even more ripped off by touts and possibly being scammed etc. Stop all being wusses and idiots and vote this hot.

How come they got tickets if it's sold out.
I'm only a Geordie but up here sold out means no tickets.
