Priority booking for Hamilton in London went on sale at noon today. I was on the priority list, I got all the information last Thursday (including the really interesting stuff about how they are doing "ticketless booking" to combat ticket resales) and did some careful thinking about how much I wanted to spend and on what combination of tickets. The booking period just encompassed my birthday next year, so I decided to go for a Saturday matinee as close as possible to my birthday (because what better way to celebrate staying alive?).

At the weekend I set up a ticketmaster account, and added my payment details, this morning I confirmed I could sign in from work, was able to navigate to the performance I wanted and see how the ticket options would go, but not to order until noon, and waited. I hit reload a few minutes before noon, and got the Ticketmaster "you are in a queue" page, which thankfully cleared not long after I'd tweeted:

For speed purposes, I didn't try to choose seats but just asked for Best Tickets, and am delighted to have got row C stalls!  I think I benefited from being near the end of the booking period, and having as much as possible pre-filled.  Now I just need to wait till next June ....

My excitement today has pushed my resistant colleague (who will love it) over the tipping point to start to listen to it.

I'm taking you, my boss, and hopefully my co-worker (who I think you met at my xmas party?) if she's still in the country/able to visit then.
