Going to a Concert

A group of friends have decided that they are going to go to a concert to see the Romanian group, Morandi, during the school holidays. David goes to the box-office to buy tickets for everyone…

David: Hi! Have you got tickets left for the Morandi concert next Wednesday evening?

Assistant: I’m sorry. Unfortunately, it’s sold out on Wednesday. The only tickets I have left are for Tuesday evening and they are standing tickets.

David: Let me see… I don’t think Tuesday suits everyone. What about Friday? Is it sold out?

Assistant: I think it is, but I’ll double check now… Oh, there are actually 8 tickets available for Friday evening.

David:  Fantastic! I’ll take 6 of them, please.

Assistant: Would you prefer to be seated or standing?

David: Seated, please.

Assistant: OK, let me check if there are 6 seats beside each other… We’ve got two seats in row 4 next to the aisle and four seats in row 5, next to the aisle as well – is that OK?

David: Yes, that’s perfect! Six tickets at £20 each…so that’s £120 in total.

Assistant: Correct. Here you are. Enjoy the concert!
