Anyone ever bought tickets from ticketmaster?

    I'm tempted to get tickets for the EDF cup final (Leicester Tigers v Ospreys).

    Has anyone used Ticketmaster (http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/) before?
    They are a legit company, right?
    They haven't been done on BBC Watchdog (yet), have they?

    Good reliable service or unreliable/poor in your experience?

    I checked Tigers website about getting tickets via the club, but I reckon the club's allocation of tickets will be snapped up by season ticket holders and club members.

    Cheers

    I've bought a few tickets from there for gigs with no problems at all.

    I have used them once for an egg chasing event at Twickers and they were very good.

    we got our tickets for glastonbury back in '94 from them via a record shop in manchester, before the days of spending a morning on two phones and two computers trying to get them :tongue:

    Used them for tickets to watch the World Cup at Manchester velodrome, and the tickets came through no problem.

    I did get some fairly odd emails from them advertising other events though - how do you make the leap from liking track cycling to really wanting to go and watch Ronan Keating? ;)

    They are probably the biggest ticket agency in the world - helped no doubt by the outrageous fees and postal charges they add onto the standard ticket price.
     
  9. An egg chasing event ...? Oh, rugby, I see. Very good.;)

    Yep proper firm your tickets will show up. They will make a few quid out of you in booking fee per ticket and postage that bears no relation to actual cost charged me £1.75 for normal first class post on my last purchase.
