I went to a recording for this series in February. It was great (even with waiting in the snow beforehand). Are they re-recording the show, or is this for additional recorded footage, or are these live segments?

Mill says:

Althought I’m pretty sure they will answer “You need to be UK citizen to participate”.
But hey – If you don’t even try you can’t ever win! (only two hour flight – I’m not that long what it seems when looking from there…)

ScreamingGreenConure says:

Flajack I’m on your side. If you win PLEASE make puns the whole way through. I’ll even try to help you out by collaborating beforehand.

Ms G says:

Over 18 only huh ?! That is scary …..

I’ll leave the risky job up to all of those that signed up for the event, or will do, and will watch the resuls later on. Safely from my seat back home … chilli rice chips .. diet coke …… hanging … numbed face … (that’s what my face looks like when I’m kinda interested …. oh well, it always looks like that … ehehehe .. and when I’m amazed .. a miniscul lift of the right eyebrow can been observed if you watch closely … as in “Good move, Brown” .. admiring moves and skills of a worthy opponent ….. Nah, a battle is not necessary … I will leave the stage all to him and others who like being there …. )

Now then .. the event … it is a risky title I think … THE event … it might raise my expectations a bit too much …
Although peanuts is not a good idea for a title either …

Looking forward to seeing The Event in due time. Can’t say it enough. There’s not much to look forward to right now so …

ScreamingGreenConure says:

On the contrary MsG, I think a battle is absolutely necessary. Someone get Criss Angel a ticket!

July 28, 2009 at 12:03 pm
Ms G says:

SGC: oh good, you were not aiming at me re this battle … Chriss Angel .. I vaguely remember having read something about him .. he looks a bit weird if I recall correct. .. Something with a window .. a trick. Have seen a few clips of him on you tube. Well, if you close the deal with both of them .. set it up .. we all will show up to watch the battle .. and cheer on our preferred winner .. (in silence ofcourse .. mind waves)

Also nice .. Derek Ogilvie vs Derren Brown … two fields coming together in mind reading … ehehe ..

Rob says:

The Feb stuff was the build up section of The Event which will be inter cut with the live broadcast.
Its going to be a VERY intresting few weeks if the filming was anything to go by back then.

Been on the waiting list a while and hope friend in high places pay off 🙂


July 28, 2009 at 12:29 pm
flapjack says:

SGC- I wouldn’t dare make puns all the way through unless it was required as part of the performance, I’m way too self-concious for that, but thanks for the support! This is one show I can’t miss

July 28, 2009 at 12:32 pm
Ferny says:

BUGGER, over 18’s only!
Really wanted to try and get tickets as well 🙁

July 28, 2009 at 12:49 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

Ms G: we will not cheer for a winner, because there are no winners in war. All that can come of it is pain and sorrow.
Let’s do it anyway, though.

Over 18’s Only- Gutted!!! 😛

I know foz, it’s shocking!

July 28, 2009 at 1:26 pm
Foz says:

I know!! we really should be able to go and see him! all under 18’s are just so deprived 😛 hehe

July 28, 2009 at 2:03 pm
Kim says:

Added myself to the waiting list, fingers crossed!

July 28, 2009 at 2:42 pm
Ms G says:

SCG: WAR? Who said something about war?! A battle … A duel … without guns ..
Or a duet .. that’s combining skills of both … Or a whole team … teams vs teams …

Do people have to bring in their ID when they buy tickets for the event? Or does lots of make up do the trick?

Or is it just a warning that there will be lots of sex and violence ? That normally is the case ..
What is not appropriate for those under 18 in Brown’s event …. or is it just that they are not influenceable enough yet? Or still a bit too up … Meaning, is it good to be over 18 or not ..

I’m not 43, serious .. no need to ask all this if I’d been 44 .. huh?

Hm .. The Event … needs a whole different approach from now on …

Mmm… I’ll already be going to London on the 29th August and I reckon Uni will be starting soon after during mid-September.

I’ll probably leave it… Enigma was good enough for me this year ^-^

Hannah says:

i registered for this ages ago without actually realising! really hope I’m able to get tickets. what an amazing experience that would be!

July 28, 2009 at 4:18 pm
Berber Anna says:

Mill: From the look of the registering page (with a box for ‘county’ and none for ‘country’) it is aimed at UK residents, but now that all the international people on here seem to be registering anyway, I gave it at try as well. I do hope they won’t mind… the UK is only a few hours by train from here (yay Eurostar), and it seems like a cool experience.

Criss Angel is the Jon Bon Jovi of magic.

Rhian says:

Yay! Done but have no chance of getting tickets. 🙁

chantelle says:

ohh I might register I’d love to go it’d be great (as I sadly couldn’t come to see you live for a 3rd time this year as i’d hoped to, I was totally gutted!!!)

sorry to those of you under 18 that must suck big style good job I’m almost 24 then eh 😉

wayhey it pays to be my age 🙂

July 28, 2009 at 9:19 pm
Dale says:

I signed up also. Im really curious to know what Derren has in store in his latest generation of TV shows. Maybe less hair, a trimmer beard and more haunting scary mind tricks.

July 28, 2009 at 9:28 pm
Mr Woolf says:

Hmmm… very interesting.

I’m not one to turn down the chance of free tickets to one of D’s shows 😮

A couple of questions before I register though:

1) Who gets to choose the ‘winners’ of the tickets? (or is it random)

2) I notice that there’s no encryption on their registration page. As petty as it may sound, is this site known to be secure?
(Seeing as it’s not really recommended to hand out details like name, address and DoB over the net without secure connection.)

Thanks and good luck ot all who have entered 😉

Kenny says:

Registered for this and went to the taping in February. Maaaannnn was that cold! Stood outside the venue for 3 hours in the snow. We then got shuffled onto old fashioned crew buses where the temperature was a couple of degrees above ambient but at least we got a glass of wine (by glass I mean plastic cup and by wine I mean plonk) to warm us up.
What was slightly annoying was that they didn’t let us out of the buses in the same order we arrived which meant that the people who waited for hours ended up being the last ones into the studio.
It didn’t matter too much in the end as the studio itself was really small and Derren moved around a lot so you got a pretty good view for most of it, no matter where you stood.
In fact I spent most of my time trying to dodge the cameras…. both being in front of them, and getting crushed underneath them… they don’t half come at you out of the dark!!!

Alysha says:

Haha I remember finding one of those Event flyers in the envelope on my chair at the Adelphi show. About five people hissed at me not to open it, because it was obviously a trick. I waited until the end of the show. No trick, so that showed them.

July 29, 2009 at 9:26 am

you are feeling sleepy!!

July 29, 2009 at 12:55 pm
Jess says:

heehee, thank God I turned 18 the day before this link was posted! 😛

Registered! 😀

July 29, 2009 at 1:42 pm

Have registered, and I’m twice 18 so I think I’m just about old enough….. 😉

Fraser says:

Alysha – I think everyone was wary of opening them before the end!

I only remembered on the train home, suspecting it would be a list of everything that happened!

Oh well, under 18, so i’ll watch it on tv.

July 29, 2009 at 4:42 pm
Hannah says:

Huh only over 18s 🙁
Huffing now!
😛 would be awesome to go though…*sigh*

Hoping for tickets, excited at the prospect alone.

chantelle says:

I registered (I HAD to didn’t I?!?) How could I pass up this opportunity??? I’d be crazy to (Mind you I already am crazy lol)

I really do hope I get tickets it’d be magnificent wahooo 🙂

Kirsty says:

Just logged in and my application for the waiting list had disappeared from my bookings. Strange, so signed up again.

August 2, 2009 at 3:09 am

I really want to get the tickets . Are there any free ones?
