Priority booking for Hamilton in London
went on sale at noon today. I was on the priority list, I got all the information last Thursday
(including the really interesting stuff about how they are doing "ticketless booking" to combat ticket resales) and did some careful thinking about how much I wanted to spend and on what combination of tickets. The booking period just
encompassed my birthday next year, so I decided to go for a Saturday matinee as close as possible to my birthday (because what better way to celebrate staying alive?).
At the weekend I set up a ticketmaster account, and added my payment details, this morning I confirmed I could sign in from work, was able to navigate to the performance I wanted and see how the ticket options would go, but not to order until noon, and waited. I hit reload a few minutes before noon, and got the Ticketmaster "you are in a queue" page, which thankfully cleared not long after I'd tweeted:
For speed purposes, I didn't try to choose seats but just asked for Best Tickets, and am delighted to have got row C stalls! I think I benefited from being near the end of the booking period, and having as much as possible pre-filled. Now I just need to wait till next June ....
