Not worried about these dates so much given the amount of spares surfacing for this tour. It'll be fine.

They were sold out at 9.20 am if you have mobility issues.

Sorry to hear about the trouble you have had getting your ticket Finn! It's really not good enough. Venues need to be getting this sort of thing sorted.

I'm going because one of the six wheelchair users doesn't need a carer space - but I'll be behind another wheelchair right up on the back of the balcony.

You know what's even worse? Wolves is one of the more accessible venues for gigs.

So sorry it's been this difficult for you It really, really shouldn't be in 2014; a long way still to go sadly.

Six spaces is three times as many as Edinburgh offers - two spaces in a 2,200 capacity venue. http://www.usherhall.co.uk/screenloa...l&type=include

Then there's Cardiff - a 10,000 capacity venue that has already filled it's spaces* http://www.seetickets.com/event/mani...-castle/836040

*Rumoured to be 25, but trying to confirm.

Bullshit!!!

It's 2014, why won't people wake up?

Yes, disabled music fans want to see gigs, is that so hard for them to swallow?

it'll be down to cost.. it always is..along with a serious lack of imagination from whoever owns/runs the venues. They would have to re-design the seating plan but it's most definitely do-able

I don't blame the band (l'm sure, like most of the public, they assume that accessibility laws mean that disabled fans are catered for.) I blame the venues and the promoters.

Have a friend with mobility issues and I know how hard it can be organising for her to be able to attend theatre shows. Venues definitely need to start improving in these areas. It's just not acceptable.
