Re: Leonard Cohen and Ticketmaster

You know, everyone's complaining about the costs of these tickets. But given how quickly they've been selling out they've been underpriced, if anything. I don't see anything wrong, or unscrupulous about anything that's been done here. I wanted tickets. I paid what I had to to get them. If the ticket...

Re: Venues for the LC shows

Frankly I'm happy he's playing at Rexall, had he decided to play at the Winspear - as cool as that would have been - there is no way I'd have been able to grab tickets. It'd be a repeat of Calgary.

Re: no available tickets!

I've seen plenty of shows sell out, but very few so fast that there were zero tickets available 5 minutes after they went on sale. Can't think of even one right now. Ever tried to buy Radiohead tickets? Wilco? White Stripes? Jimmy Buffet :? I went to a show that Clapton put on here in Edmonton a co...

So did I. Far better. 10 rows from the stage versus 26.

Re: I'm so sad - got awful tickets for Victoria concert

there's no reason to be sad. i'm depressed because i have a feeling i won't be able to get tickets for the NYC concert again, the only one I can go to. If I had any tickets I would be happy. The feeling that I won't get any tickets again is depressing. You're lucky. Exactly. Take a pair of binocula...

Re: I'm so sad - got awful tickets for Victoria concert

If you want to see Leonard Cohen live this may very well (and in all likelihood will) be your last chance. Nose-bleed section or not I think you should go. You'll regret it otherwise.

Re: Cheating?

What do you mean? If you have the password, use it! There is some concern - and I share this - about using a password if you don't obtain it through some offical channel. I got a working password for the show off of the internet, bought two AEG tickets, but still felt off about it. Ended up getting...

Re: Find, sell or swap US/Can Tour tickets here

foxglove - they're still selling tickets in Edmonton. If you can make the trip north on that Saturday show you should be able to get something still.

Re: The North American Tour & Presale for members

I got two additional tickets online for the Edmonton show - 10th row, floor seating. I was worried, used a code to get two seats last week, and am now contemplating selling those. (if anyone's interested, PM me). I haven't decided whether or not to keep them, but if I do sell two (26th row, floor se...

Re: The North American Tour & Presale for members

Now I'm beginning to get worried. I've got the tickets - they're being mailed to me in the next couple days. Paid the money. Ended up paying 164.74. I'm hoping that's good and done. That once I have those tickets there won't be any concerns at the venue.

Yikes. I spent a lot of money on this.

Concerns re: code use

I posted this in the long 20 page thread above, however, I need some sort of confirmation here that having used the code for the AEG / Venue / Radio presale, there won't be anyone demanding some sort of ID or additional information when we present the tickets to get inside. An unreasonable worry, I'...

Re: The North American Tour & Presale for members

Yeah. It is flat. It's a hockey rink unfortunately. But this also means that the elevated seats are quite a ways back. Anyway, I bought them AEG / Venue / Radio presale. The only other conern I have is whether or not the fact that I used this code will mean that there'll be some demand for identific...

Wow that does work. Thanks.

How good are floor seats? 26 rows back? I imagine not great.

Re: Edmonton Show - codes, etc.

Yeah, I've done a little bit of internet digging, and found some codes. None of them work however.

Ah well. I guess I can try to be quick on Monday.
