as long as we can slip Bad Devil in there somewhere.

I don't even remember the poll for the by request set for the RAH show. Not that I'd have changed much to be honest.

Anyone booked flights/travel/accommodation for this yet?

Looking at it with the missus, the best and cheapest we can work out is flying in on the Thursday, staying a night in Sofia(because the flight is so late landing), then rent a car on the Friday to drive to Plovdiv. Stay there after the gig and drive back to Sofia the next day to catch the flights home.

Not the easiest trip but thats all we can figure out at the moment without an extended stay in one place.

Not booking anything until the new year, but you can get flights to Plovdiv direct from Stansted on the Wednesday I think it was? I looked when we got the tickets but wanted to wait until more flights became available online for comparisons sake. Either way it only worked out a tenner or so more expensive on Ryanair to go Dublin>Stansted>Plovdiv. Check other routes if you don't mind two flights, you may be able to get a flight from Dublin to somewhere in the EU say, and then on to Plovdiv. Beats that Sofia flight by miles, Midnight on Thursday is a shitty time to fly in given the gig is on Friday.

Aye, I think Dublin>Stansted>Plovdiv may be the best after all. Its probably too early to see all the flights options as well.

Gonna leave it for a while so!

Only talking about it a while ago. Thinking of the wednesday-Monday in plovdiv via stansted but don't know if there'd be enough to occupy us for 5 days.

Also thinking of spending 2 days in Sofia, renting a car from the airport on the Thursday, driving to plovdiv, staying there for 2 night and driving back to Sofia on Saturday to fly home.

So finally booked something. Flying to Dublin-Stansted-Plovdiv on the Wednesday and will have a couple of days there to figure out picking up the ticket from the petrol station etc. Train to Sofia on the Saturday and flying Sofia-Stansted-Dublin on the Monday.

Flights were pricey enough by the time you've selected seats and all that malarky. Prob around €400-450.

Is that over and back? Seems rough, I was looking around before and could get 2 people round for about the same.
So are we going to attempt to meet for a pint before or after? There's about 10 or 12 of us going, should be a good laugh to get a group together for a pint.

Haven't booked anything but due to other commitments throughout the year looks like I'll be going for a flying visit, wont be sticking around too long. Probably fly in the day before, leave the day after. I may be heading to Sweden straight from Bulgaria.

Still though, a meet up would be good craic I'd say!

Just did a quick check on the emails, it was around €550 for the 4 flights for 2 people but that's including €30 per flight for priority boarding. So if you weren't fussed about that, call it €430 for 2. Still steep enough. Prices might come down a bit...just not the easiest place to get to so didn't want to take the chance of not being able to get one of the flights.

Found a guest house place pretty close to the venue so booked in there for the 3 nights. Looks like both of the petrol stations for picking up the tickets are about a 30 min walk away from the venue but then again, we'll have all of Thursday to do that. I'll definitely be up for a pint at some stage...though I hear the lav facilities aren't ideal in the ampitheatre so getting hammered beforehand prob isn't a great idea....as a teaser, I heard it involves a ladder. Maybe a few beers on the Thursday? :wink:

Still no word on VIP upgrades for this but booked the VIP for the Stockholm show in March to tide me over. Though reading his comments about having to do them for the money but them leaving him drained took some of the excitement away.
