Just so I’m crystal clear: Members (me) can purchase tickets for themselves in the Tuesday Member pre-sale (8am UK/ 9am Vienna) and I can also try for my wife (non Member) in the same order?

Has anyone seen the concert at musikverein.at? The sale starts tomorrow but in the webpage there is nothing about it.

The email said the concerts will be announced tomorrow, at the same time as the sale for the members will begin.

Essentially, the website is throwing non-stop error messages, blocking any other buttons and screens. You cannot click around them, so you have to physically remove them using the website code. They've completely messed it up.
