Think you've got a Robbie Williams ticket? Think again...
Are you a Robbie Williams fan? It’s okay, you can tell us, we won’t judge you. Much. Perhaps you thought you were going to one of his forthcoming shows in Glasgow or Dublin, with tickets acquired after you won the ballot for the oversubscribed gigs? Well tough luck sucker, because you’re not.
Well, you might be, but you’re going to have to go through the whole ballot procedure again. You might be lucky, you might not be. That’s the rollercoaster ride that is being a Robbie Williams fan for you.
It seems that there was some kind of horrific mix-up between the Glasgow and Dublin shows by stupid old Ticketmaster and now they’ll have to do the whole thing all over again.
A statement on Williams’ website spake thus:
"Due to a data-processing error all customers that had registered for the Robbie Williams performances in Glasgow and Dublin were informed they were successful in the ballot for the incorrect venue. Please note that tickets to Southend and Leeds were not affected.
As such, and in the interests of fairness, we have declared these ballots void and will be running them again. This is to ensure that in the new ballot everyone who entered has an equal chance of winning.
Ticketmaster sincerely apologise to Robbie and his fans for any disappointment and inconvenience caused. All ballot applicants will receive further communication shortly."
Everyone cool with that? COOL!
