9th July (Birmingham) FAQ

We make our return to the Second City this Sunday for CHAPTER 51: SCREAMING FOR PROGRESS. Here's some useful info...

Firstly - this is only our second time in this venue, so we may still have some teething problems. If there are, please have some patience and give us some time to sort things out!

Please be aware that on a show day, we're incredibly busy and probably won't have time to answer queries, so we suggest that you head to the PROGRESS Fan Group where someone should be able to help you.


You will need your e-ticket to get into the show, either printed or on your phone. Printed is better because it scans more easily. Nothing else will be accepted - no payment receipts, no "my mate got my ticket for me", no notes from your mum. 
If you haven't got your ticket, you can resend it to yourself right here

Our system issues one e-ticket regardless of how many actual tickets were purchased. If you have more than 1 ticket and your group isn't coming in at the same time - please make sure that every person coming in has the barcode to scan. Again - printed is better, but a screengrab on your phone will be OK.

If you bought your tickets via Ticketweb or Ticketmaster, you'll need either the e-ticket or the paper ticket that you opted for. 

O2 PRIORITY ENTRY will be available for anyone lucky enough to have it.


If you have a seated ticket, you'll find the seats are colour-coded according to ticket tier. 
Front Row seats have a white band; 
Gold seats are Rows 2 and 3 on the floor, and the front row of the stage. They will have a gold band on; 
Regular seats are anything from Row 4 back on the floor, and Row 2 back on the stage. They will have a purple band on. 

It really helps us if you know what kind of ticket you've bought, and that you sit in the right area. The show is sold out, so if there is someone sitting in the wrong place, that means someone else isn't in the seat that they paid for.


The O2 Academy is at 16-18 Horse Fair, Birmingham B1 1DB. Click here for a map. Birmingham New Street station is half a mile away.

Doors will open at 2pm. First bell at 4pm, interval halfway through, and we'll be wrapped up by 8pm at the latest. 


There will be a full range of PROGRESS merch on sale (shirts, DVDs, scarves, hats, as well as smaller items like keyrings and wristbands) and you'll probably find a bunch of wrestlers selling their wares at ringside before and after the show, and during the interval. We take cash and card payments.


If you want to ask about something we haven't covered here, find us on Twitter, Facebook, or by email. Don't forget that the PROGRESS Fan Group is the place to go for any questions on show day.

See you on Sunday!
