      Yes! Got meself a ticket and a pretty good one too I went to in front of Sokos, place where they sell the tickets, at 6 A.M., and was the first one there. I think they sold out pretty quickly, since the quy who came right after me to the counter got only some upper level seats.

        Yep. It was a close one.
        Finally managed to get tickets through website around 9:16.

          Hard to imagine that they sold out like that....and with that price! 79€! That's more than 10€ more than the H&H tickets back in '09!

          Well it seems that the decision to go or not was made easy for me!

            Same with me - I got two tickets from the cheapest category - I actually think our seats are in the basement or the building next to the venue I just don't understand how all the floor tickets were sold when the sales STARTED in the website. I don't know many tickets were sold through the pre-sale...

            I'm disappointed that I didn't get floor seats, but didn't want to risk it since there is always the possibility that this is their last concert here. Goddamn peddlers hoarding all the tickets...

            EDIT: Just heard that all the floor tickets were in fact sold in the pre-sale. Don't know if this is 100% sure, but if it is, it's simply disgusting actions by the event organizers...

              They sold most of the best places in that presale. I looked the map at Hartwall Arena website and mine and my brother's seats seem to be in front of the stage so I think it's good view despite the upper level.

                Sabhuman1978, in which section you got the seats? Mine is in 119.

                  That was sold out fast! I was about to get tickets to floor but then the web service suddenly prompted that there is some sort of error and tickets are not available, another try for seat tickets, same thing and then it was already sold out. Well, you can't always win. For some reason I'm not so upset that I thought I would be if I didn't manage to get tickets. I saw original four back in 1999 and H&H two times in recent years, maybe that's why (or am I just fooling myself).

                  Peddlers and pre-sales (in that magnitude) should be criminalized!!!

                    Yes, I read that a bulk of the seats in the lower rows were sold in the pre-sale as well. And the pre-sale wasn't even intended for fan clubs of any sort, which would have made this a bit more acceptable (although I don't think there is an official Sabbath fan club in Finland). Outrageous.

                    Anywho, our seats seem to be behind the stage (the site did warn that there might be some obstacles blocking your view to the stage) . Our seats are on section 105, row 12:



                    Well, now I feel even more fortunate for getting floor tickets to the H&H show through cancellations in '09...

                      If that's so, it is really fucked up. But actually it might be true. I was on the lippupiste counter at 9 o'clock sharp and I think none there, not even the first ones at 9 o'clock, got the floor tickets.

                        Not a bad idea, I would join it!

                          I was at the Lippupiste desk at the R kiosk before 9.00 a.m. The system went down right at 9.00 a.m. At 9:02 a.m. almost all tickets were sold, only some tickets for the highest and furthest seats were available. I was bummed and disappointed, especially because of this whole set up where self-importants cunts join in different privilege clubs only to buy tickets that they will then sell to true fans for a sickening over-price. Dante's Inferno welcomes people like these to the 4th circle...

                          After my dark day at work was over, a miracle happened...

                          My good friend, who called me yesterday asking if I was going to this concert, called me again and asked if I had got the ticket. Well, I hurried to curse this whole set up on the phone, until he told me his story...

                          He had gone to the Citymarket door before 7.00 a.m. this morning. Not something new from a guy of his heavy metal fanaticism...Well, he got there first, soon over 20 people were cueing behind him. After over 2 hours, he got to the ticket desk and for some - I think divine - reason he got the brilliant idea to buy 2 floor tickets. And he managed to get them right at 9.00 a.m. sharp, the people behind him we're not so lucky anymore since this system is pure madness. Well, he told me on the phone that he would gladly sell this extra ticket to me, for the basic price of 79 euros plus 2 or something euros of sale costs. I was stunned to death on the phone!!! Well, we met up right after work, I paid him an even sum of 85 € and promised to remember his noble deed in the near future. He's an Iron Maiden super-freak, so I guess I'll make something in the "Up The Irons" spirit for him...We also reserved seats from the concert bus that Lippupalvelu provides. So now it's little less than 6 months until the Original Masters Of Metal unleash Hell!!!

                          P.S. I think people like my friend here really, truly deserve to listen to Heavy Metal, because they are more than worthy...I'll be in eternal debt of gratitude to him.

                            Nice! I bought two tickets to that show today when they were released at 09:00. See you there! (though we won't recognize each other, but still)

                              I've never been in Hartwall Arena, don't know how far it would be from the stage, but according that map it's straight view to stage

                                It is really sad, or should I say disgusting thing going on now for Helsinki show tickets. Those greedy motherfuckers are selling tickets in internet for something like 200 euros per ticket. And most of them seem to have even four tickets for sale (maximum number that one can buy from official ticket sales). Pre-sales my ass, it is good only for these lowlife scumbags. Yeah, I'm pissed after all.
