475? No thanks!
If I stay awake, it must be good.

It does seem that top price seats will be that, judging from ticket sights...

How the hell can you charge that much for tickets?!!? I though Chenoweth was having a laugh with her 100 quid tickets, but 475?!! That is 4 premium West End tickets, and dinner before hand. Some premium package tickets are up to over 900 pounds!

think the £475 is the " package " price - when you go on ticketmaster at the moment it redirects you to Ticketweb site with packages available from today ...

Sadly not. Hot ticket, which appears to be the standard ticket price is £470-£575. The club experience package £735 (£280 without ticket, implying the value of a ticket with this package is £455), and the premium club ticket is £905 (£455 without ticket, so ticket valued in package at £450).

My apologies lesterf, Ticketmaster have now put up £65 tickets (+ almost 8 quids worth of fees). I wonder how much of the place will be at the £65 range though... And a seat in the upper tier at the 02 isn't worth that anyway, she'll be teeny tiny, more like Barbra Streis-ant.

I'll get my coat.

the fees are getting out of control !! I agree about the 400s .. you end up getting nauseous and watching the screens anyway !
