I feel sorry for anyone who wanted to catch Nikki's 'last' show. I gathered she'd be on on Wednesday as she has been for like 7 months...but then today's matinee, then the evening! Definitely think Rachel's aiming for all 8 next week.

Yup, doubt Nikki will be on next week at all sadly.

Feel a bit bad for Nikkis fans but if Rachel is aiming for all 8 then I don't blame her! :)

Oh yes definitely :)

And as for camping from today, aside from the fact it's ludicrous, how the blinkin heck does that even work when people will need to queue for the other 6 shows this week?!

That's ridiculous!  And not at all fair on those who can't take a whole week off work/uni/whatever to queue!  I don't mean to be rude, but queuing for a week is over-obsessive in my opinion, no-one should be that attached to a show/performer.  I hope those campers don't keep stopping cast members at the stage door as they go into and out of work this week!  I thought the people in the front row would be the annoying teenage fangirls, but surely they wouldn't be allowed to camp for a week for a ticket?!  It's not really safe to be sleeping out in London like that!

I feel sorry for anyone day queuing this week now!   Also, it's surely a bit of a nuisance for the AV as well, I wonder if they'll try and make the campers leave and come back on Thurs/Fri?

Why wouldn't they just pay £40 extra and sit a row behind?! It's easier than sitting on steps for a week.

Because they're the most dedicated fans ever of course!! And obviously it will really impress the cast that they're prepared to put themselves in danger for a week for them! Oh wait... :rolleyes:

Staying over one night (Friday night to Saturday) I can sort of understand (though I still struggle with this!!) but to stay any more of that is just stupid and dangerous.

I can't really think of anything I'd queue over night for. I'd rather pay upfront and enjoy the excitement of the run up to cast change from the comforts of my own home!!

Being totally serious my main concern for them is the shower situation, they can't go all week without showers :/

Unfortunately i'm on Row B and i won't be amused if i can smell them . Feel very sorry for anyone else sitting near them.
