Tickets @ BILESU SERVISS:
First 1000 standing tickets - LVL* 15 (SOLD OUT), then LVL 20.
Seated - LVL 25 and 35

* LVL - the Latvian money is Lats.
1 euro = LVL 0.71
1 Lats = ~ EUR 1.40

GOLDEN TICKETS are available too, just click!

INSTRUCTIONS - how to buy a ticket on BILESUSERVISS website (click to see the pictures!):
1) Open www.bilesuserviss.lv and click on UK flag in the upper right corner, then click on the category "Music" and choose "Pop and Rock"
2) On the second page, find 30STM. Closer To The Edge Tour and click on "View"
3) When an info page opens (about the concert in Latvian) click on "Buy". There is a pop-up window: click on "Buy without registration"
4) On the left side of the page, change the seat choosing from "automatic" to "Seat selection".
5) Move the cursor over the "SEKTORS" on the left side to see where they're located. If you want a standing ticket, choose "SEKTORS 001". All the other sectors are seated.
6) For a seated place, click on the "SEKTORS" that you like to choose your place: you can see the row, the seat and the price of the ticket. Click on the chosen seat(s) and then - "Confirm all".
7) Proceed to check-out: verify the tickets you've chosen, select the delivery type and the payment type and the click on "Confirm selections".

The easiest way would be the "i-ticket", BUT... you can't choose it, if you're paying by credit card.
If you're coming to Riga early on the concert day, I would suggest "Pick up at Narvessen e-ticket office" or "Pick up from shown ticket box offices".
There are loads of "Narvessen" kiosks in city center, most of them opened every day from 8:00 to 21:00.
See the list HERE.

In Riga, the following ticket box offices are in the city center, not far from "Arena Riga":
- Rīgas Kongresu nams, Kr. Valdemāra iela 5 (opened from Monday to Friday, 10:00-14:00 and 15:00-19:00);
- Dailes teātris, Brīvības iela 75 (opened on Monday, from 14:00-19:00, from Tuesday to Friday, from 11:00-15:00);
- U/V STOCKMANN, 13. janvāra iela 8 (opened every day from 10:00-21:00, look for "Pastāvīgo klientu apkalpošanas nodaļa" (Customer service department) on the 3rd floor (4th floor in Latvian)).

Thank you, Eeva! ^_^
It's a pity you won't come... :mellow:
But I think that going in Spain is a good decision and it's not "forever": don't miss the opportunity! ;)

Latvian forum is still very quiet, maybe due to the 4-day vacation.
I really hope that people who went to Estonia (as myself  :rolleyes: ) will put some pics and reviews there.

O.K. But... it's in Latvian and you can't access it if you're not registered @ draugiem.lv...  :mellow:
So, I guess it's better to discuss the "show plans" here.

Well, at that group they are talking about: 1. Draw symbols on our hands; 2. Wear t-shirt with anything about group; 3. Draw lines on faces.
May be it's not "true", but I think that's a little bit childhood or something like that. When I where in Estonia I liked the flag, witch had guys from Finland. May be we can make something like that with Latvian flag? Or make a 30stm flag?
