Rock City are prejudiced against Thunderground bought ticket holders?

Ahhh see yes, when I see this ( I quote)
" You will not be guaranteed a entrance to The Rescue Rooms if you purchased your ticket from the Thunderground festival organiser. The announcement on the Wig Wam site will be amended as soon as possible.
However we are working to ensure that anyone who purchased a ticket diredtly from Nottingham Rock City box office will be provided with a partial refund.
Dave No#1 and I will discuss the logistics of this to ensure that those individuals will get preferential entrance to The Rescue Rooms venue."
I dont like that. Why should people who have bought direct from Rockcity get preferential treatment over people who have bought direct from Thunderground.
Have to say it BUT I feel like someone is being prejudiced here because of where tickets were bought. The reason I didint buy mine from rockcity direct is because you get a booking fee and postage on top so why should I pay extra, at the end of the day you gonna refund that off peoples tickets aswell or just the face value. Still making money out the booking fee then eh.
If people have bought tickets regardless of where they are purchased from, they should be guaranteed entry to this gig, even if the ticket has to be shown to clarify you have bought one. Surely its not a hard job to find out exact numbers bought and offset that against venue capacity for a number on the door tix, obviously as ppl may not show now then this can be adjusted on the night as ppl are coming in.
We had decided to come down to Nottingham this weekend anyway as we had spent so much money on accom etc like so many others cannot get a refund on my room so thought it was a shame to waste the cash might aswell take advantage. Ill say this now if I cant get into this gig because of rock city ticket holders and tickets sold on the day I will kick off big time. There has to be a guarantee for ticket holders REGARDLESS of where it was purchased originally that they have entry.
Sure this will get sorted out before the weekend, Im glad someone has been able to sort something at such short notice and salvage a band out the lineup, big thanks for that, never the less I do feel disgruntled about that statement. It needs to be cleared up for everyone.
