Mister D: Early bird tickets went on sale through Ticketmaster this morning at noon in the UK. If you ordered the CD in Bette’s Stereo Boutiques you should have been sent a passcode to order tickets. I’ve heard of two ways of doing it. The link takes you straight to Ticketmaster and/or when you go to buy tickets when it asks for find tickets a box appears and you copy/paste the code into it. Â This sprung up really quickly this morning and we posted info on the Facebook page. Thanks for Justin and Kevin for helping us through this. There is another early bird presale date for LiveNation which begins on Thursday November 20th. Not sure what the parameters are for that sale. Confusion abounds…lol
