Tickets have been fully booked for a while now. But… there is always the chance that a few ticket holders will not turn up, freeing up their seats. So if you have not booked a ticket, you might want to take your chances and turn up fifteen minutes or so before the event begins, and perhaps, perhaps you will be able to get a ticket.
