Good idea! I cannot wait for this show. I will reply tomorrow with what the prices were, I heard anywhere from $60-$600
and YES and MasterCard Debit Card should work, I have been buying tickets off ticketmaster for years and my WAMU debit card always works

I want to try to buy presale tickets to the Oakland show, too. But I can't find anywhere on ticketmaster to put the password? I have a ticketmaster account, but have never done presales before. Ticketmaster says prices are $69.50 to $250.
. Please help! Where does the password go?

I bought tickets for the Columbia MD concert on Monday. It was easy. Just copy the password off of this site and paste it in the box on the ticketmaster site. You will have a choice of ticket prices. Good luck and relax. They take all major credit and debit cards.

ok another page says the 26th thing is the American Express presale, apparently the 25th fan club presale still stands. But does this mean some choice seats are being held for Amex??

This whole process may just kill me.

I really, really hope there is no VIP option at the Paramount. Not that it's not a great thing, but I would rather have $250 be the highest price for front row tickets, instaed of $600 as others have mentioned at other venues for front row plus VIP, whatever it means. Apparently the VIP choice doesn't pop up until purchase time. It would be nice if everyone willing to pay $250 had an equal chance to get front row instead of being relegated to 2nd orchestra, AA and back.

I have been able to book the ticket (seat BALC F 16). Thanks jarkko! This will be my first Leonard Cohen concert ever, although I'm a Belgian. I couldn't make it the first time last year in Belgium. Since I moved to Berkeley in August, I also couldn't make it for his second concert in Belgium last year...

Have not been able to get tickets - was on the site logged in and ready to go at 10:01. Were they already gone?

Does anyone happen to know how the American Express presale works? These presale tickets went so fast. I have wonderful, good-loving, Leonard Cohen fan friends who weren't able to grab the presale tickets today.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I got tickets, only upper case password worked, with lower or mixed case I got the message 'tickets not available'.

Same message 'tickets not available' will also show up if the control words are misspelled.

Me too. Been on the site since exactly 10:00 a.m. and keep getting message that there are no tickets. What's up with that?

I kept getting the same "tickets unavailable" message from 10am sharp , I kept entering "Best Available" and finally around 10:07, Orchestra Rear, Row LL popped up, I grabbed those, even though was willing to pay more, because I knew nothing better would pop up. I figured all the scalpers jumped on at 10am sharp just like the rest of us. Hope you were able to finally get tickets also. ;-)

Not sure how many pre-sale tickets were actually available, but they started dropping at 10:00 a.m. exactly.
Only the $99 tickets came up for me. Front Balcony, row F, and Rear Orchestra, Rows PP, RR, and then DD (which I took).
By 10:10 a.m., it appeared that all pre-sale tickets were gone.
Whew!
Thanks jarkko!
We may try again for regular on-sale and see if we do better... but at least we are in the house !
