what would be cool is if they did a rarity show, performed one set of songs they have never done live before. and then keep the second set from the tour.

Wow, I'd be all over this if I were anywhere near there.

And a rarities show would be glorious, of course.  So, I didn't notice, but "Radio2 In Concert"... is this something we can all listen in on live during the event?  Will it be aired at a later date?  I'm just not familiar with the process.

Great find!

I've applied but if I do get tickets that's gonna make things very difficult because I'll have to travel down to London on the Monday, back up to Yorkshire then back down to London again on the Friday and back again. Actually kinda hoping I don't get 'em :/

Being a little sneaky with this  Smokin

Its not yet even mentioned on the Blueboard or even BBB , so the less people know the more chance of obtaining tickets  Cheesy

Yep I know exactly what you mean , same scenario here BUT the chance to see them in a Theatre that has a capacity of 600 is just too good to miss

I shouldn't think it will stay a secret for long! Do the tickets have names on them? If I have applied for two can I bring whoever I want?

That is true. If I somehow do get the tickets I might just stay in London for the week (university will not be pleased). Heck I might even get a ticket for the RAH show since I apparently have more money than I actually do! LOL No point freaking out yet though ... aaand breath Tongue

Good luck, but the BBC tend to dish out most of these to insiders and their friends and family members/

Just heard the ad on BBC Radio 2, it was very nice. I expect there'll be a fair amount applying for tickets.

Yeah, OF COURSE they'd do a show on national radio that's 50% tracks no-one has ever heard before. I'm SURE that's exactly what will happen.  Shocked

I hear the 1 hour version of 'Shortenin' Bread' will be part of the show. Good.

AGD has confirmed that my speculations are correct! In his comment he also hinted that WIBNTLA will be released!

It would be cool, but also insane and something that will never happen.

Sorry to double post, but apparently the Radio 2 gig is now "fully booked". I should think that now means that all seats have been allocated - has anyone received any emails or phone calls confirming their place yet? Until I hear they are being sent out I still have hope that I will get one. Pleeaassse!

You know, this kind of sucks, no?  I know it may just be the luck of the draw, and there is going to be a lot of 'what-if's' in my thoughts here, but with the number of folks applying from here, I would think that at least one of us would have scored tickets.  I wouldn't think anything of it if there weren't whispers floating around of the BBC handing these tickets out to 'their people.'  If this really is their practice - and all the while they are putting on a good public front by making it look as though all (or the majority, anyway) of the tickets are being distributed to the general public (while in truth they are reserved for VIP's), then I'm just disgusted.

Or maybe I'm just disappointed.

Or maybe I should just get over it as this type of thing happens all of the time, while much more legitimate concerns are carrying on in the world, but damn, I was really happy that some of you guys might just have the chance to enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.
