    We are fans of the Boss so will try to get tickets on Friday. It will also be nice to be at the first ever concert. The price is the cheapest of all the venues in the UK. Should be great night out if I can get some tickets.

    Up to £750 for a ticket to see the Boss...... Love Springsteen, but don't have that many pennies

    Has anyone paid an eye watering price for a ticket?! And do you feel it'll be worth it?!

    Well done for getting tickets, SuperLeeds. Have a great evening.

    You'll have to report back to us all about the arena.

    I heard Elton hadn't sold out as expected so the council busted a gut to get Springsteen and a full house on opening night.

    How do you get this 20% discount?

    It is probably too late for me as I already have my Cirque du Soleil tickets*, but it could be useful for future events...

    *For anyone that is interested they were £50 each plus a £7 PER TICKET booking fee (and they wanted to charge me £2.50 for the privilege of printing off my own tickets!)

    Would be funny if those paying silly prices turned out to have invalid tickets! Maybe it would kill of this middleman profit that is happening in so many areas of business now. People getting lazy and making money on someone else's back. Shocking.

    Motorhead at the Fforde Grene was a whopping £2.50 as I recall.

    Oh yes ! I'd be happy to pay twice that today....
