Glav Club anyone?

Post by Boody »

Mrs Boody bought me a ticket for the Glav Club for Christmas. Anyone else going?

PS I told a friend who knows Moscow quite well and thought to ask him how safe it will be. "Safer than Aberdeen" was his reply.

Yes, Easyjet I think. It's even a return...just looking for a hotel.

Excellent.
Been some hint if she'd only bought you a single.

I was pricing this up myself. Very reasonable price to fly with Easyjet ..think you can fly out on a Thursday and return on Sunday or summat like that. The stumbling block was when it came to organising a visa. There were a number of on line sites offering to sort the paperwork out but it was quite expensive (doubling the price of flight and gig ticket). Didn't dig too deep I have to say so I would be interested to hear if anyone knows the best and cheapest way to sort out the visa issue.

Nice Xmas prezzie btw Mr Boody!

Ok, just done a bit more digging.

Gatwick to Moscow with Easyjet - fly out on Thursday 9/04/2015 return Sunday 12/04/2015 = £66
Gig ticket = £19
Visa from Russian Tourist Office = £125

Comes in at just over 200 quid plus any additional costs (baggage, booking fees etc)

All you need then is 3 nights accommodation or maybe 2 if you fly out on the Friday before the gig.

I reckon you could do it all for under £500 plus same again for food, fags, booze and whores. Hmmmmm!

I'm only going for one night. Completely failed to take the visa cost into account - good spot.

it was the visa rip off that put me off from going

Still tempted. You have to see it as a short break in Moscow ...not so much just a gig.

Easyjet site says that you must visit the Russian Embassy in London or Edinburgh in person for your visa. Dunno if that's the only way. Bit of a ball ache if you're not local-ish to these.

Thing is ....you only live once! I would love to be at this gig, one of only 187 punters.
