I actually can not think of anything worse than this. Never in my life would I go to an AT concert, I can barely make it through Fireworks.
The kids, the crowds, the screaming, the queues, the horrendous music..... Worst Nightmare!

Surely there will be a discount with an annual pass, at least? (ie - you don't have to pay for the park aswell as the concert).

I'd actually be tempted to go just to have experienced an Alton Towers concert tbh, depending upon the price. Can't say I'm too keen on the line-up though.

I sent a tweet to AT on this very subject, will let you know if I get a reply.

Didn't they do an after 5pm style ticket for previous concerts?

Indeed, it strikes me as though they hadn't thought of the idea of a pass holder discount prior to the event, which is odd. Bad grammar on there, too. :P

Evening all, in response to the questions about the Alton Towers concert more information especially with regards to a possible Passholder saving will be released later on this week. As soon as its been confirmed you will be the first to know.


I get the feeling that it'll be 20% off, as with the concerts in the past.

Who the hell is Union J,Stooshe,Connor Maynard,James Arthur&Little Mix?
I heard of Rizzle Kicks& Labyrinth but I couldn't name any of there songs off the top of my head. Olly Murrs is annoying they always playing his cheesy music on free radio. Lots of people say his a wannabe Will Young.

You leave Olly alone, I like his music and he would be the only reason I would go to it.

Unless being a pass holder they pay me to go I'll be avoiding Alton Towers on this day.
Awful line up of bands, but I suppose it brings the kids in and the parents. 2 instead of 1 for AT

No really my cup of tea with the band selection apart from labyrinth ..... Due to the remixes I've heard.....

If Prodigy, Pendulum and other stuff like that we're playing (do also like ACDC Metalicca and Iron Maiden) then I'd be sold straight away. But the chances of that happening at Alton Towers......... Are slim to none and slim has just left the building  :D

I'm sure it will be a good day for fans of those though.
