It will be interesting to see if Bob Dylan will perform another nine versions of "Soon After Midnight" in the United Kingdom, starting with the three shows at the Palladium.

He might get in trouble with some of the locals for offending the younger sister to Prince George, who is third in line to inherit the British throne.

Dylan performed "Soon After Midnight" nine times in the UK in the fall of 2013, but the song was not performed at all during the fall tour of 2015.

[Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is the second child of Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. She was born on May 2 2015.]

Another thing of interest, this time about this venue.

These three shows were announced in early February, almost two months after the Banquet speech by Bob Dylan given by the United States Ambassador to Sweden Azita Raji, at the Nobel Banquet, 10 December 2016, which included these lines:

"When I started writing songs as a teenager, and even as I started to achieve some renown for my abilities, my aspirations for these songs only went so far. I thought they could be heard in coffee houses or bars, maybe later in places like Carnegie Hall, the London Palladium. ..."

I'm getting concerned, as my pair of tickets for the 1st Palladium show this Friday, ordered by my daughter as a birthday present, haven't yet arrived. She's been emailing viagogo frantically all day, without reply. They were supposed to arrive by today. Anyone else not received their tickets yet? Any advice as to what to do about it? Thanks.

Yeah, my tickets for the Friday show haven't arrived yet either. I emailed RUT/SeeTickets yesterday, but haven't had a response yet. Hopefully they will get back to me today, otherwise I'll call them. Never know, they might even arrive today, sometimes it's not until 2 or 3 days before that they arrive..... fingers crossed!

No worries. I just received an email from customer relations at SeeTickets, saying that my tickets had been printed and mailed out this morning - whether that was standard practice, or whether they forgot about them, and my email prompted them, I don't know! - and that I should call them if I hadn't received them 24 hours before the show.

Hope you hear something/have your tickets turn up soon, too....

My daughter has just texted me to say that viagogo have informed her that our tickets have been sent out, special delivery, today. Hurrah! Good luck to everyone else, because that is leaving it too late for any fan's comfort.

Given what you guys have been reporting here, I now expect to read soon that someone got an email saying you should call them if the tickets don't arrive until the day after the show :lol:

Is there a pre-meet for the show on Friday? I have been spoiled by our German hosts :)

yep - I must be in with a shout to win that one! Very much looking forward. Loved the experience of Frankfurt and now curious to see the show in a much more intimate setting. Im in 3rd row. I feel blessed.

I sold my Sunday tickets so am just going on the Saturday. Ticketmaster then 'lost' the ones I sold which made the process of selling a real ball ache... but I would expect nothing less.

I'm looking forward to it as Copenhagen was so good... but it is a shame that there is no variation at all, even one or two would have been enough for me... just enough to keep you on your toes.

Enjoy all.

If he's gonna mix it up at all during this tour, it must be at the London residency, right? Based on history, etc.

Yeah, my tickets still didn't arrive with the postman today. Just had to call them, sit on hold for ten minutes to get through to someone. She said they would 'probably' arrive tomorrow. Being as how that is the DAY OF THE GIG that the tickets are for, and that I'll be gone before the postman even gets here, I had those ones cancelled and another pair reserved for me to collect at the box office... Just in case anyone else is still waiting.... might be best to take the situation in hand!

Can't wait for the show tomorrow. :D

The last time I spoke to the people at See Tickets (who power the rutlive website) they put me down to collect the tickets at the Box Office. If I now receive these in the posts I really will know if the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing!

So guess what I received in yesterday's mail - the two tickets I ordered when the shows first went on sale. They originally told me that the tickets had been despatched to me the day after I purchased them. When I didn't receive them nearly one month later they presumed they were lost in the post and said I would have to collect 'duplicates' at the Box Office on the day of the show. Yesterday, I received my two tickets by post - the tickets say they were despatched on the 26th April 2017. The strangest dealings I've ever had with getting tickets. I can only think that they began to panic when they saw all the tickets appearing on the secondary sites and held the majority back until the last minute.

Got my Sunday tickets yesterday. A bit late but now safely tucked away.
Is there a place where people are meeting up?
