Re: Who's going to Paris?

All seating on Thursday and Friday, standing downstairs, seated upstairs on Saturday. If standing on Saturday need to get in line very early, front of line gets you in front of stage.

Re: Last posts from "Jim Buffett"

Hi Jimmy! This time next week myself and many other PHins will be in Paris, which is always a fantastic City to see you in concert with the Coral Reefers, my son James will be 40 on the Saturday, a certain song from your many great songs would make his day, or maybe just a mention would be equally g...

Re: Who's going to Paris Sept 26 or / and 27?

Standing on Saturday is OK, have done it several times, you need to be in the line quite early to get to the front, by the front I mean about 10 feet from Jimmy, however, be prepared for some pushing and jostling by latecomers, who seem to believe they have a divine right to be in the front without ...

Re: Paris 2014 / Dublin 2014

Excellent service from GDP, ordered tickets yesterday at 9 french time, received by DHL this morning just over 24 hours later, determined to see all of the first concert this year, rather than ending up in one of the local hospitals. Maybe a little less Red Wine will do the trick!!

Re: Paris 2014 / Dublin 2014

There will be plenty of people to help, Paris is a great place for tourists, the Metro is fantastic, day tickets are inexpensive, and can be used on the Metro, some trains, and some ferries on the Seine, we are planning to arrive about lunchtime on the Thursday, as the first concert last year was on...

Re: Paris 2014 / Dublin 2014

Hi Kate, Paris will be a bit cooler than Miami, but this particular weekend in Paris has had great weather for the last 6 years, you will need a bottle opener to open beer bottles unless you bring some Landsharks across, hope it is not a rumour, Sue and I are looking forward to meeting you again,and...

Re: Paris 2014 / Dublin 2014

Not sure whether it's just a rumour or reality, when I read the first message, and then checked rooms on booking.com, all rooms seemed to be selling out fast, so have booked rooms at the Ibis Paris Sacré Coeur 18ème, it's about 150 metres from La Cigale, and can be cancelled without a fee until the ...

3 standing tickets booked, there are stil seats avaiable on the balcony, as offered row 7 in the middle, if you haven't logged into the ticket sellers site www.gdp.fr before, do that first, as it will let you choose tickets, but will then not allow you to purchase without logging in, a little bit fr...
