I must admit that I was very skeptical about them and phoned them first on the pretext of checking a point about the tickets that I was intending to order. They answered the phone quickly and could not be more helpful. In view of this response I decided to order the tickets(Billy Connolly in Glasgow) the tickets were much cheaper that Seatwave etc and arrived within three days, I was really surprised! The tickets were actually better that I had expected and great seats. I have only used them once (last year) and now would have no doubts is using them again.

Hi, I've bought several sets of tickets from Double 8 now and have always found them to be reliable. You get what is described on their site when you buy and the tickets always arrive in plenty of time. The only negative is that the tickets are very expensive but they are genuine. I hope this helps

Double8 are 100% genuine. I don't use anyone else now apart from them. Great seats for great prices. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed with their excellent service either.

Genuine! We booked Bette Midler through them. Still good to check out all ticket sites as they are all allocated different seats & their prices do differ.

Tickets bought are genuine but the face value of the ticket is below what you pay for, very inflated

I have used Double8tickets on numerous occasions. I trust them wholeheartedly. They even contacted me once when I couldn't find the seats I wanted for a concert. Well worth the money.

The tickets are genuine, they specialise in sold out concerts so you can usually get tickets from them. They are usually more expensive than face value, but you can get some bargains. I have used the site many times and have never had any problems. Delivery is excellent, and if for any reason the show is cancelled you get a refund.

I had Neil Diamond tickets for may this year from them and had no issues whatsoever. The tickets arrived 2 weeks before the concert and were the genuine article. I would definitely order from them again, we had amazing seats.Yes expensive, but well worth it.

Hello, I used Double 8 for Pixies tickets. It is totally genuine and easy to use. Would recommend them!

I have bought from Double8 quite a few times and have had no problems, the tickets always come in time (although sometimes quite last minute) and are as described - usually excellent seats. People have said expensive - that is true, but I have also had some bargain tickets below face value at the last minute!

I bought plenty of tickets from D8, never had a problem. being a reseller it goes without saying the price is higher than face value. what they do though, in some instances, is to offer deals nearer to the show's date. D8 clearly is not for anyone and it requires a bit of 'disposable income' indeed. i still recommend it.

I've bought quite a few tickets from Double 8 and never really had a problem. I've picked them up from their office in central London and also received them through the post. They can, however, arrive at the last minute so be prepared for that. Only problem I ever had was when I bought a single ticket and they then decided they had wanted to sell them as a pair. There was a bit of a hoo-hah but I did eventually get the ticket I had paid for!! Other than that they are very good. Obviously a but expensive but they are for sold out events. At least they do have a proper landline phone number to use and their offices actually do exist!

Double 8 tickets are genuine and their service is reliable, but I would agree with AngelAC that they are very expensive, perhaps the most expensive of all the outfits that sell tickets for high demand events.

Have bought tickets through Double8 over several years and genuine tickets have never failed to arrive in good time.

Don't touch them They are not helpful when things go wrong. Save time and heart ache by buying tickets that can be traced and replaced if lost or stolen.

I have purchased tickets from Double 8 on many occassions and have never encountered a problem, they are always reliable and tickets are received in plenty of time. On one occassion there was necessary to provide updated tickets, I was fully informed of the procedure by phone and e-mail and had no problem with entry.Tickets are naturally a bit more expensive than direct supply from the venue but the price you see is the price you pay and no added costs, unlike some other sites. I fully recommend Double 8.

Can't speak for the Michael Bublé tickets, but personally I've never ever had any problems with Double8 at all - they seem to be one of the most reliable (and less pricey!) premium re-selling agencies.

I have been on my ticketmaster account and it says "tickets have not been dispatched." I am waiting for 2 separate orders for the concert on 8th December in Leeds and both orders have the same message. Hopefully tickets will be dispatched soon. Or perhaps you and I are the only ones who have not received their tickets! Eeek!

I have purchased tickets many times form this ticket agency. I have never been disappointed and always have received great seats but as they are a premium seat broker you pay a much higher price over face value. I have on one occasion been given a refund when the artist I had tickets to see cancelled the concert, they did not return the booking fee or postage but fast response to cancellation and refund. I would highly recommend.
