Can't book Festival tickets

I booked several Festival concerts online, no problem. Then I wanted to book 2 seats for a concert at the Guildhall, there were 3 seats at the end of the front row. As we're a bit hard of hearing, I thought that's just the job, clicked to choose 2 seats, message came up ordering me to make a different choice as this would leave one seat which would be difficult to sell! I seem to think there were 2 or 3 rows like this. The alternative seats are all right up at the back and we don't want to sit there, so I haven't booked anything.

I'm going into town tomorrow so will go into the Corn Exchange as I can't believe this can be right! Hopefully they will sort it out for me - but I'm not holding my breath.

Ridiculous! Or is it just me?

I had the same experience when trying to book a pair of tickets at the Corn Exchange "on-line", for a nealry full Jimmy Carr show. I just picked up the phone and got it sorted in minutes. I think the booking software defaults to reject pairs leaving one empty seat, but at the eleventh hour, they will manually sell anything that's empty.
