I noticed this. I have a suspicion it was deliberate, so that it gave the chance for some people to actually get to the next step of the ticket buying process by the time it reached 10:30. Otherwise, with everyone attempting to reach the same page at 10:30 on the dot, their entire website may have completely shut down, almost like a DoS attack.
Yes I did! (still took me about 25 minutes to actually get in)
But I'm starting to think this is normal now? The exact same thing happened when I was buying tickets for Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé as well! lol! (all though with Norwegian ticketmaster).
So you yeah, better start refreshing constantly about 3 minutes before the actual time
I can't believe I'm going to see the girls live for the first time next year! (I was really young when they were around the first time and only 14 when they reunited for the world tour a decade ago so couldn't go off my own back and my mum was against it as she believed I should've "grown out" of listening to them). It's like a dream come true!
I wonder if there will be a few more between now and Friday? I would be surprised if they do another Wembley date out of sync with the remaining dates - will be a pain to unpack and repack the staging.
