In response to the immediate sell-out of Gary's 2012 UK Tour on Friday 19th October, here's a very generalised representation of the views expressed by those unlucky many who missed out on bagging their tickets.

On behalf of the venues concerned, and the venue staff who received a barrage of colourful comments from disgruntled admission-less customers, we did our best (-sorry!)

Hope this re-write brings a modicum of tongue-in-cheek consolation... :-)


(Look, I know we're all trying to buy tickets,
At the same time, but can everyone please...)

Just have a little,
I know Gary's tour has sold out online,
It just brings such frustration,
My last chance is the booking line,
It's unfair cos,
I phoned up the venue,
Ninety-eighth in the queue,
Once I was thirteenth,
They'd sold completely,

Cos I,
Didn't call in time,
My ear is numb,
Has no feeling,
The web's left me reeling,
I'll cry-y-y-y-y,
They're testing my,

I'm still hurting from the,
Tickets I lost,
To all of the online agents,
They'll reappear,
On eBay at huge cost,
My hopes have all blown up the chimney,
Cos Buy It Now is £250,
They're triple figures even on Gumtree,

Cos I'm,
Stuck twelfth in line,
My girlfriend's tears are streaming,
She's practically seething,
Should be a crime,
They're really testing my,
Patience yeah,
I'm running out of,
Patience yeah,

Cos my pockets aren't deep enough,
To pay the fees that they charge,
Just have a little,

(I can't belive they're being touted already,
Look at this one for sale,
It says it's £3000 for one "standing" ticket?!
There's not even a "standing" area at the show,
It's ridiculous,
I'm so annoyed,

Cos I'm,
Wasting my time,
Promoters always take the p***,
Holding hundreds for guestlist,
That nearly rhymed,

Cos I've completely run out of,
Yeah I've use up all my,
My ear is numb,
Has no feeling,
The web's left me reeling,
I'll cry,

I'm just so bereft of,
