Viagogo 6 Nations Tickets and More

26 09 2008

Viagogo is a UK based ticket hub selling all sorts of tickets to events spanning from music by Kanye West to sports like cricket. It actually works somewhat like eBay, as a portal for matching people to buy and sell tickets to any events, thus allowing for more variety. Or it could also be described to be like a movie theatre’s website, where you’re able to choose the type of seats you want, except for the time needed for the delivery of the ticket. (All tickets are able to be tracked online through viagogo, and there is live customer support seven days a week in case of any problems with ticket delivery.)

It also means that as long as people are willing to sell, you’re almost guaranteed a seat to any event in the UK.

Right now, the focus is on Rugby tickets since Rugby season is beginning soon. ICC World Twenty20 Tickets and RBS Six Nations Tickets are seeing a lot of buying/selling.

The Ashes Tickets are also being sold, so any England or Australian rugby fan worth his salt ought to check  them out. Especially England fans, since England will be looking to reclaim The Ashes from their last defeat. It’s still a long way to go till the 1st Test starting July 2009, heh.

Viagogo is not just for sports though. It also has tickets pertaining to many genres of music, as long as the event/concert is being held in the UK. Examples of artists include Stereophonics, Coldplay and even New Kids on The Block tickets. I’m not that keen on New Kids on The Block, they’re more old than new (Stepford husbands singing LOL). In my opinion, they can’t even hold a candle to the lousy comeback by the Backstreet Boys, and that’s saying something.

Anyway, for anyone wishing something a little more “refined”, there are arts and theatre tickets. Musicals include Grease, Chicago and Wicked(which is awesome, by the way). Comedy section has Steve Coogan and Lee Evans up for grabs while the Theatre section has Shakespearean mainstays like Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream being sold.

For those more into the Dance/Ballet part of theatre, there is the critically acclaimed Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky as well as STOMP(Which is also awesome, by the way, with the way they use everyday items to create percussion music that actually sounds great.)

All these said, viagogo guarantees fulfillment of your order. If the order isn’t fulfilled, viagogo promises to provide better or similar tickets at the same cost.
