Help on Brit lingo and buying tickets to sold out concerts

Hi all

I know someone out there will no the answer to this, but a concert I just learned about which is happening when I will be in London is "sold out returns only" How does one buy returns and when, the day of the show??

Anyone out there know a reputable ticket angency from whic to buy a ticket. I live in LA and often use a certain ticket agency to buy tickets to concerts at the last minute even when they have been sold out for months.

Thank you

returns are sold first come first serve on the day of the performance. If it is a big deal concert, the queue for returns will start many hours before they go on sale.

You can often get tix to sold out shows directly from re-sale agencies or from your concierege - but expect to pay a hight premium for them.

Thanks
