The 10 heartbreaking stages of failing to secure tickets to The Frames

We’ve still got tiiiiiime… oh no wait, we don’t.

THE FRAMES ARE playing a one-off gig in Whelans on Monday. Tickets went on sale at 2pm today but the system let a lot of people down. Not to mention the fact that they sold out in about 2 minutes.

It went a bit like this.

1. Initial excitement


2. Anticipation

Alarms are set, refresh is located, the countdown is ON.

3. Preparation


4. Hope

5. Doubt

6. More doubt

7. Resignation

8. Disbelief

9. Devastation

10. Acceptance

No, wait. We will never accept this.
