Soooo, in theory me and lindsayfucksboys just bought tickets to three Noel’s gigs. London 18/11, Cambridge 13/11, Ipswich 14/11. But what a quest it was! And I’m still can’t be 100% sure we made it :(
Gigs announcement caught us in the worst time possible:
-just moved from Russia to Bulgaria
-with only russian credit cards
-without bulgarian address or bulgarian credit cards
-day after we cashed all our savings (well, when your former country goes all batshit crazy invading neighbors, it’s always a good idea to convert your money to euro). The problem is, since all these cards were russian we couldn’t just undo it from Bulgaria!
-with big plans for our savings - rent, furniture, things like thatwell who am I kidding, this part was irrelevant, Noel Fielding is more important than a sofa %)
-stuck with ticketmaster and its delivery-only-to-billing-address-rule (or is it only for these gigs? wtf, what’s wrong with print at home tickets or picking up at the venue?)
Unfortunately we wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what to do in this situation and as a result our seats will be far from ideal :(
So the final plan is:
-London gig tickets will be delivered to my mom’s office here in Bulgaria (thanks to the different ticket provider for this gig).
-Two others will go to my former Russian address and I will beg my tennants and my friend to cooperate and pick them up and keep them till summer, when I will be in Russia next time.
