The person on the phone directed me back here - she said that advance tickets were only available on the internet. :(

I just got through the telephone lines and Place des Arts is saying that the pre-sale is not available by telephone. That listing it that way was an error. They suggest being patient online -- so many people are trying to get tickets. Otherwise only available by phone on the 13th at noon.

I have nothing as well. The same "service unavailable"/"code is invalid" messages. At least we can be sure there are many of us in this boat if not all. Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.

I just talked to the booking office at Place des Arts in Montreal and they gave me the same message. "We have to book through Leonard Cohen's website". Help, Jarkko!!!

What webaddresses are you using? do we add on the letters after the link or just the link itself?

Just got through on phone to ticket office was to they CANNOT sell tickets over the phone until the general sale date on 3/15. Also asked about the trouble with getting the online thing to work. Was told it is working but due to the very large number of people trying to get tickets there are the problems we are having. Told to keep trying and hopefully will be able to get tickets. I feel this is going to be a wasted vacation day for me, probably should have went to work and just dealt with the scalpers like I probably am going to have to anyway. :cry:

9h15 and can't make it work. Maybe the server is overloaded already. Phone line always busy.

Maybe I'll go in person at lunch If it doesn't work online. I work close by the PDA.

Should the code ...VBwZbZ3/Sa be pasted in the address line to get access?

are the links in the first post correct?

It looks like there should be different links for the different days, but the hyperlink is the same for all three.

I have tried putting in various combinations of the ID that's after the link to no avail.

They told me the same thing on the phone.

Yeah, This is pretty lame. I bet scalpers found a way to get all the tickets. That would suck.

Help Jarkko! I keep being told my password is invalid. Which means that you're invalid ;)
