Coming to Cologne for Phil Collins!!! (2 Replies)
I have booked tickets for my husband and I to come to Cologne as we have always wanted to visit and at the same time we plan on seeing Phil Collins at the Lanxess Arena!! Advice please on whether to book and secure tickets via seatwave/getmein/viagogo reselling sites online or to wait till we are in Cologne and see if there are touts near the arena? Thanks in advance!

Response fromAlex90028|
Chances are that there will be tickets sold outside the arena by some shady people, but why take the chance, especially if you travel especially for the concert to Cologne. My advice, buy tickets asap

Tour guide was basic and drove us to a lunch tourist trap on our way back to Dublin. Collins Tour, on the other hand, was outstanding!
