Hoping all are well. granted I'm a bit late in the day but thought it worth a try to post this in any case -
having purchased tickets for Mr. Williams's original shows at the Musikverein in '18, I too received the heads up mail from Musikverein a few days before the sale. much to my regret, however, on the AM of the 24th, I completely forgot about the sale due to stresses in London, and not remembering until 24hrs later when, of course, both concerts were sold out. I'm presently on the waiting list for both shows but naturally the likelihood of anyone returning for this will be slim for obvious reasons.
I have booked flights + accom. for Vienna for jan in any case, in the hope that I may be able to succeed in acquiring a tick for either concert, even if it be a case of waiting by the box office in the hrs leading up to each show on the off-chance of last minute returns, or potentially buying from sellers outside the venue in cash; such is my determination to try and make this work, I'm refusing to approach it with anything but buoyant optimism. in the meantime, however, I do have E140 ready to go for a tier 4-8 ticket - and, would be more than willing to pay the full E140 for even an E8 standing ticket. If I may, my request to all JWFan members here today who read this is whether or not there might be any possibility of making this genuine offer to anyone who finds themselves having a spare ticket going for either performance on the 18th/19th? I both acknowledge and appreciate that this is most likely going to be a no. however, as stated prior, I again felt I had to at least try with this.
I was incredibly fortunate to attend the RAH concert in nov '18 and can safely tell everyone here today who wasn't in attendance that night, that Mr. Williams was most certainly there in spirit. I'll never forget the cheer John got when Lucy Noble proclaimed that it was his wish for everyone at the hall that night to raise the roof on his behalf. so, even if I don't manage to see John in person in jan, at least I'll have this memory.
thanks in advance for your time & have a nice day.
