people were trying to sell the password for our presale on ebay...makes me sick.

I also saw some tickets onsale for over $1,000 for the TX show...3rd row. how is this possible if there are "no paper tickets"

(on a happier not, it looks like all of you who wanted tickets were able to get them, congrats! I'm trying for Detroit tomorrow wish me luck!)

If you look in the section "PRESALE PASSWORDS AND LINKS TO TICKET SELLERS" you will see how Jarkko set it up on Monday for the first set of venues. At 10.00 am EST he will post the second set of venue links and password.

a question about the "B" presale...I know EVERYONE is sick of questions about this...

"Group B: Fan presale Wednesday February 25 from 10 am to 10 pm LOCAL TIME. Public sale Monday March 2 at 10 am (local time)"

my presale for Detroit starts at 10am EST (it's the same local time) ...does that mean that the password will be on here any earlier...or will I just have to rush to this site and then to try to hurry to ticketmaster???

THANKS! This is stressing me out thinking about the morning :roll:

Another question for the Group A folks. I know the price range for San Diego is from $89.50 to $254.00. Can someone give me a rough idea of how many different pricing levels there are, and how they break down. (I should have checked the Monday onsales, and would now, but those sales are all offline now until the public sale begins)

Thanks!

I know what EST is. I am in it. It's 10:10 p.m. Tuesday Feb 24 here. I see postings dated Wednesday Feb 25. What time zone is that?

Dumb questions:
1. i am in MST...if i retrieve the pasword 2 hours before I can buy tickets does this mean those in EST have been able to buy tickets for 2 hours?
2. If i by 2 tickets and happen to come by better seats at a later date from a ticket broker, can i let my friends have my presale tickets if I pick them up? I am desparte to be front row but also can't chance not getting a seat at all...wow, this is stresing me out :?

Hey I tried the password you posted in the promotions tab of the venue ticketing in Victoria BC. " Select your tickets." It did not work, will it work at 10am local time here and if not is there any way to get it to work!

No. I am also in MST and bought tix Monday. You will have access to the password and presale at the same time as folks on the east coast; it just means you start at 8:00 AM MST (that's 10:00 EST). You'll get the password then and can buy tickets for EST locations at that same hour; tickets for locations in CST at 9:00 (MST), locations in MST at 10:00 (MST), and locations in PST at 11:00 (MST). Does that help?

Sorry to piss and moan, but $70+ for a seat in the rear of the balcony? $250+ for choice seats? Gimme a break. There's this economic crisis in the USA, see? I lost my job and am tryin' to figure out how to survive on $452 a month UI benefits. I wish lots of success to Mr Cohen and hope you all enjoy the show. Count Me Out.

Reading the article that appears in today's (Feb. 25, 2009) New York Times ("On the Road, for Reasons Practical and Spiritual") makes it a bit easier for me to understand the (for me) high prices for tickets to the concerts. My goodness, if someone informed me my worth had suddenly dropped to nine and half million dollars I'd sure look around to see what I could do to raise funds in a hurry. ;-)
