Thank you! Glad you got your tickets, I got mine for both too! And yes, pleasantly surprised at how cheap the Saturday night gig is - but I'm guessing they want to guarantee a sell out to get as much money as possible for the NHS charities. Anyway, I'm thrilled to bits!

Great stuff.

Yeah, I wouldn't have expected any NHS staff to be excluded from this. Course I'd still expect non-NHS people to try to blag it..

Just over 35 quid for this one - think Cardiff 2018 (RIF tour) was around 40-ish...
I thought that too, wonder if with it being for charity if CIA have reduced or waived any fees or whatever.

My HCA sister has plus oned me for Friday night, so I've bought her a ticket for Saturday and will be paying for our hotel room and travel. Seems only fair

I am really looking forward to this.

Was also pleasently surprised by the lower ticket price , hopefully they will do a collection on the night as well so will try and remember to factor in the cheaper price of admission to any donation!

Was also pleased to get good seats (too old to stand nowadays) so all in all a great result!

I think it's amazing that the band are doing concerts for the health service and really special that they are dedicating a concert to NHS workers. I have worked for the NHS for over 20 years although I will be going to the Saturday concert I'm very happy to contribute more to all the amazing constant hard working throughout🌈

No way I can make gigs outside Liverpool in precovid circumstances. Seriously happy everyone seems to have got a ticket. Fuck you always to the eBay arseholes to come.
Really happy and would like to know how these gigs were set up?
I'd love to think it came from out their own pockets. There have been similar charity gigs planned for Paul Heaton and Rick Astley.
I can't see the Manics being able to front an entire tour where all proceeds went to charity.
But one or two shows seems more doable. What's Bono's and McCartney's excuses then?!

Has the venue waived some of its standard fees for hosting events for these NHS shows?

Hoping this means they'll do some other shows around the UK to make up for the shortfall

I got tickets despite Ticketmaster being a complete bastard with my stored credit card details. Haven't booked a flight yet. Just going to wait and see how things develop.
