Yep have to agree especially at £50 a ticket! At £20 would have be been worth a watch but £50 is asking too much for something so many people will have little interest on. A lot of people knew about this and seemed the price put them off, which would be a good idea for a family day out.

I know of a few people who went up to it.  They were motorsport/motorcross enthusiasts and they thought that the ticket prices were cheap for what they were going to see.  And from the sounds of it they also had a real good time, and would go again if it were the next year.

So I went on the website, saw the price of tickets, and thought, no thanks.

I don't think you and I are alone there.
It sells out everywhere else that that money I'm afraid.

They only sold tickets to one stand. 

The set up / ramps were set up for best view with only one stand in mind. 

Nitro Circus were very happy with sales night before the show in the pub.

Seems a lot of not knowing the actual facts of the contract deal discussion on this thread so all very pointless IMO . Seems Lionel Ritchie had 25000 at the Liberty. He knocked out Glastonbury last year with mega show mind so reinvigorated career over here!

A lot of defending the indefensible going on here....I dont care what deal they had the scarlets should have been involved with some promotion and advertising. Lets hope the quo adverts are not as non existent around the town.

Posters in Llanelli shopping centre,
Heard on radio

All on top of nitro circus social media etc.

The advertising board in town centre, in the st elli centre, still up there today. If your there tomorrow, take a look!
Unfortunately, can't show you a bus, but a few driving round town nitro circus advertised across the back.
Scarlets website, on the left hand side of the home page leading upto event. This may now have changed to status quo now...not checked. the advertising board on the roundabout, close to Franky and bennies has now been taken down i think, didn't notice it earlier.

Again, scarlet fm been flat out advertising it...more or less every hour, heard it a number of times when in work.

Full page advert has been in newspapers, can't remember if it was the post or star!

Everything can be done better, but I don't think advertising for it has been poor.
But then Ive seen quite a bit for it...could be a that a number of people may not know exactly what nitro circus were all about? Spoke to a few people who thought it was a circus! So maybe some adverts been confused to some of the actual circus adverts that are around town!?

To be honest why not congratulate the Scarlets on making money from the event no matter how many tickets were sold by renting out the facilities. 

Why do people have to bash them all the time?
