Jimmy Carr is coming to our local theatre next year, having always been a fan I thought it would be good to get a couple of tickets and have a night out… How wrong could I be.
Looking at Ticket Masters site there was plenty of good seats in the front stalls, so I picked a couple and clicked Buy, only to be faced with the following message.
http://mooiparijs.nl/81em25t46i09 You have left a single seat
You have left one seat stranded at the end of a row or stuck between selected seats. Please leave at least two empty seats together.
I tried again, same result, we phoned ticket master, and got the same response, there were 23 groups of 3 seats available in the front stalls and they simply refused to sell them unless we took 3 seats, blaming it on the venue.
That’s not the end of the story, it isn’t simply a rant, as there is a solution…
- Open another browser or incognito window.
- Place 1 seat in you basket ( a timer will start giving you 3 mins to complete the transaction.
- In your main browser session, refresh the screen and you will now see the other seat has disappeared leaving a group of 2 seats available.
- Book em!
