Bryan Adams concert in Hallenstdion (March 2012)

Hi

So always having dreamed of attending a Bryan Adams concert, I thought this was my chance.
But the tickets on ticketscorner.ch are already sold out (they went on sale on 7th December 2011). By the time I discovered it, its already unavailable.

I do see quite a few tickets on this website> www.viagogo.ch but at a markup of 50% or more than the actual price

Since this is the first time I have actually tried to book a concert ticket here, it has come as a surprise. Any suggestions/hints if I could get tickets at more 'humane' prices?

Thanks. So is it like people buy tickets in bulk and then they start auctioning them off on the Internet?

I already said this on here and I will say it again: just show up at the venue and buy the ticket there. The longer you wait the cheaper it gets. Best is to wait until the support act starts (usually the time stated as start of concert, i.e. most likely 20.00)

Might see you there

Is he still touring (well apparently). Saw him in 1987 at my first "real" rock concert and remembering it as being quite good...

Then he started the whole Robin Hood thing and we parted company...

Does anyone know roughly what time the concert would finish? We live in canton Solothurn and are trying to decide whether we drive to Zurich on friday and brave Zurich traffic (and can't drink...) or we go by train. The last train home leaves Zurich HB at midnight. Thoughts anyone?

Almost all concerts at the Hallenstadion finish by 23.00 in my experience precisely so people can catch the train. When we saw Lenny Kravitz there last November he even referenced the fact that his people kept telling him he had to finish because of the trains before he played the final song.
