Please leave at least two empty seats together.

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 for me and the wife to have a night out… How wrong could I be.
Looking at Ticket Masters site there was plenty of good seats in front stalls, so we picket a couple and clicked Buy, only to be faced with the following message.
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.
We 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!
