A Ticket for Everyone
is a live album
by English pop punk
. It contains twelve tracks recorded during the Manchester
leg of their Present for Everyone
tour, plus the studio version of "Thunderbirds Are Go
", which had been released as a stand-alone single in July 2004.
The album contains live versions of all nine of their UK singles, including both tracks from the double A-side "3am/Thunderbirds", and "She Wants to Be Me", which was issued in its original form three weeks after this album. A cover of the 1978 Undertones
song "Teenage Kicks
" and the Present for Everyone
album track "That Thing You Do" round out the album.
Bourne, Simpson and Willis were augmented by Chris Banks, Damon Wilson and Chris Leonard.
, Adam Cumiskey stated: "The live element of this album is slightly staid: there's no improvisation in the songs; they sound exactly like the singles. However, with their swagger and confidence... they manage to resist sounding like a contestant in a battle of the bands competition".
An accompanying DVD
featuring footage from the Manchester concerts was released with the same title.
Unlike their two studio albums, A Ticket for Everyone
was only a minor hit on the UK Albums Chart
, peaking at number 11.
The album went Platinum in the UK.
