to be honest he doesn't say explosion of sales but an explosion of a campaign.

What's happened to the campaign? has he just asked Steve E to promote it on original fanatics and Paul on real fanatics?
Paul cant post on FB at the moment, he got a FB ban for being racist.
to clarify for any folks reading he was banned for using a term for a darts org, that I think they use themselves because of their initials.

he mentioned the other day why he stopped posting on here. from memory it was because of (false) criticism of youth darts in the EDO or BDO.
Not an darts org, its an dartsclub named Päkki Darts, and he wrte that without the dots. Its this club that make most streams in Finland

The reduction was with the service charge. Seems like the O2 made a mistake with the initial charge. Down to a couple of quid I think.

The O2 (or whoever takes the dosh ) has started refunding the folk who were 'over charged ' with initial ticket sales, according to some folk on fanatics.

Does look like a genuine pricing mistake.

“pricing mistake”

Goodness me. Shambles. At least they had the decency to part refund folk. They didn’t do that at the Tavern did they?

Last Saturday is 307 which will still look shit, especially as 80% of those are to the far right of the stage and about 30 people are up on the balcony for some unknown reason! The single day tickets they are now selling are actually better than the first batch of tables they sold, more central and only 3 tables back. It pays to wait. And once they realise only Jackie has bought a season ticket then the front two rows of tables will be up for sale at some point.....

Very good thanks!

A great place to experience at least once. Loved Freemont Street at night, loved the Grand Canyon/Route 66/Hoover Damm. Shot some automatic guns (AK47 etc), went up the STart tower for a drink, watched Big Elvis (!) went to Hells Kitchen. Gambled and lost (with lots of 'free' drinks while gambling). Ate and drank lots relatively cheaply so all good :) And they do still do cans of Miller Lite for $2.50 in lots of shops or 2 cans for $8 for Bud Lite Orange/LIme etc (!). The cans are 24oz so massive.
all good :)
