Them Crooked Vultures are playing at the O2 in Birmingham (UK) on Monday and predictably it's been sold out for a quite a while. I don't really mind paying the excess that touts are likely to charge me for this because I really do love this band (within reason, obviously) but I've never really relied solely on picking up tickets on the door before and don't really know what the risk is of the ticket being fake? I was hoping the Pit would be able to share some of their experiences with me, especially if you live near Birmingham.
If they're in Birmingham they're fake.

But in all seriousness, it depends on who you buy them from. But if they are in fact fake at least you have their address.
