Re: Announcement of the Nov 27 concert in Phnom Penh

Interesting reading the many stories of east Asia concert debacles. I worked as a tour guide in Thailand and India in the 1990's and I have first hand knowledge of things like this happening. It is not usually corruption, usually it was some local guy with connections who hopes to make a deal. The b...

Re: Announcement of the Nov 27 concert in Phnom Penh

Whenever someone says 'put it perspective' or 'let's be philosophical' it tends to upset those who maybe paid a lot of money to attend and can't change their plans etc. I can be philosophical, but I didn't lose any money/vacation planning a trip that never happened. Certainly, a good friend of mine ...

Re: Announcement of the Nov 27 concert in Phnom Penh

Wendy, thanks for your reply. I expected to be shot down as many people are unwilling to accept any form of criticism of Leonard and his management. I don't think there really is any defense. I feel sad for people who have spent thousands of $$$ on the Phnom Penh and Hawaii shows. It is one thing c...

Re: Announcement of the Nov 27 concert in Phnom Penh

Having worked in the concert promotions industry, seldom were 'logistics' the real reason for canceled events/tours. I can't recall one sold out event we promoted that we cancelled for logistical reasons-the only reason sold out events we ever cancelled were due to illness/death. I did find it stran...

Re: Las Vegas help -Q and A's/Meet ups etc

For anyone who has been on the fence about attending the Sat show in Las Vegas, we are approaching limited availability time. I was at the box office today purchasing tickets for a friend (the fee's are a lot cheaper at the box office). Anyway, the front orchestras are almost all gone (that is $250 ...

Re: Presale to Vancouver and Oakland on Oct 7

Thanks also. Can anyone hazard a guess as to whether these shows will sell out?? I may well be out of town those dates, but won't know for a while and would be happy to just get 2 tickets if there is likely to be a market for selling them (face price -- not interested in scalping them) if I can't g...

Re: Presale to Vancouver and Oakland on Oct 7

Must be a scalper selling tickets that don't exist/they don't have yet. Note the prices! They are asking $539 for tickets with face value $250. Don't make the mistake of buying tickets from swindlers. Not necessarily! They are instant tickets, which means the seller already has them. Often they ori...

Re: Presale to Vancouver and Oakland on Oct 7

I looked at the tickets for Las Vegas and there are still tickets in row NN (14 rows back) available, so there may not be a big scalpers market for these tickets. (Just a warning to anyone hoping to resell on eBay.) I sat about 9 rows back in an arena in Kingston ON and the concert was totally enjo...

Re: Las Vegas help -Q and A's/Meet ups etc

Las Vegas concertgoers might find the following article to be of interest (its from the NY Times and describes the current economic situation in the city). http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/03/us/03vegas.html?_r=1&hp Interesting article and unfortunately so true. I lived in Las Vegas during some of it...

Re: Vancouver and Oakland replace Honolulu

"prohibitive and insurmountable logistical issues" Surely the logistics of such an event would have been sorted out before they made the concert announcement and started selling tickets :? It would be interesting to know what sort of "logistical issues" the promoter means. Having worked in the indu...

Re: Las Vegas help -Q and A's/Meet ups etc

If I had to pick any production shows to see in Vegas my top 5 would be: "O" at the Bellagio "Love" at the Mirage "Lion King" at Mandalay Bay "Phantom" at Venetian "Mystere" at TI I can also recommend 'The Rat Pack Is Back' show at The Plaza. Terry Fator's show at the Mirage is really good. Most of ...

Re: Las Vegas help -Q and A's/Meet ups etc

Just an update to those of you making plans to come to Las Vegas. There are rumors of a couple of big events getting added to Las Vegas events calendar on the weekend of Leonard Cohen's show-one at Mandalay Bay arena, the other at Hard Rock. While this won't mean every hotel room or flight will sudd...
