I've been feeling heartbroken as I missed out seeing Celine on her UK tour!
Sadly, I couldn't make her London dates (to be honest, I was strapped for cash), so after feeling regret I decided to make a run for her last Birmingham date after work last night, after agreeing over the phone with a Gumtree seller that he would save me a ticket (he was at the NIA already at a private function).  
However, when I arrived at Station, I was unable to reach him again via phone and he hadn't responded to my later texts on the way to confirm a meeting place.
When I arrived at the venue (admittedly just after Celine was due on), the box office was closed and the only tickets I could buy on-line was the top priced tickets which I couldn't afford. Although now I wish I just bought one :-(
Last and only time I've seen Celine was back in the summer of 1999 at Wembley Stadium - and hope that it won't be TOO long before she plays London (or Birmingham) again.
Does anyone know if a UK date was filmed for a DVD? I really hope so!

Oh no that's awful. I'm so sorry. I wish I'd known you were looking as we could've pointed you in the direction of reputable sellers.

There's talk that she may be back next year so fingers crossed.

As for the DVD .. it's anyone's guess. There were cameras at both London July dates so you never know.

Oh dear :( that's terrible to go through and stressful I imagine.  
Me, I'd never go through a private seller. Rather through a site that will take responsibility if the sale doesn't go through (refund..)

I was also at Wembley in 1999 and it was awesome!! :)

And yeah it's just a guess on the DVD... we don't know a thing.

London July 10th and 11th 1999,

I truly feel sorry you. Did you pay him in advance, or did you have a meeting to exchange in hand ticket and money ?

I really hope there will be a dvd too, as I also was unable to attend a concert this year.

Hi there,
Thanks for your understanding.
I had arranged to meet him in person to exchange money for ticket, so no money lost (apart from travel and hotel expenses!).
Best wishes,
Heidi

Hi there,
Thanks for understanding. Yes, a horrible experience, but lesson learned!
That would be great if Celine came back next year, as she normally doesn't seem to come here very often.  
Best wishes,
Heidi
