Yeah, the one time I was offered anything it kicked me back with a sorry note when I wanted to check out
VERY frustrating. Called ticketmaster, they said it was out for this presale

I called Amex and they said cards other than the "Gold" card may work for tomorrow.

This links you to ticketmaster.

Code is amx

It's worth a try.

What verification do we have for the possibility of a second performance? Is this an urban legend or what?

i was on Ticketmaster at exactly 10:00, I messed up some of my debit card info, i went looking for my backup card, so i had to search again and was able to row KK at around 10:04-10:06!
Cannot wait for this show, and i have heard some rumors too about adding a second date!

I've been trying all day with the password itwasthehat and I haven't been able to get thru. I called ticketmaster and they said that was not one of the passwords they have for the concert. Can anyone help me, did you use that password? I just don't know what I'm doing worng.

Really frustrating. My wife and I started trying at exactly 10 am PST and for hours afterward and never saw any available tickets. (The "secret" password is all over the internet.)

Do I have the password correct? itwasthehat - that's what's all over the internet - and it's not working for me - and I called ticketmaster and they said it's not correct - any help please - from one fan to another.

The password is correct, I got tickets for this concert using this password.
Maybe tickets assigned for this pre-sale are already sold out, or read in detail here:

Yes, itwasthehat had worked for me. If you can't get the amx password to work tomorrow, there's also a presale on Friday. I just got an email from KFOG about it.

Foghead Presale: Leonard Cohen
Influential singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen will set out on his first world tour in years, making a stop at the Paramount Theatre on April 13. Tickets go on sale Monday 3/2 at 10am, but you can get advance tickets Friday 2/27, 10am, thru Saturday 2/28, 10pm.

Don't stress out guys! There's also that rumour of a second date.

We got really lucky today. By 12 minutes after 10 am, the tickets were all gone. The DH worked from home today so he could log on and at 1 second past 10 (according to his computer clock) he scored two tickets in Row A of the Balcony. It's my birthday today and I am beyond thrilled. Best present ever.

Thanks for making the presale tickets available!

I tried for a long time to get in. Site posted the same
rejection page, over and over. If the tkts were all gone
why didnt ticketmaster tell us instead of leaving us to keep trying
over and over.. I was never able to get in and i tried for
one hour and forty minutes... thats how much i love LC
Where did it say that tickets were sold out?
How to avoid this again with public sale which is on
Friday or Monday ? Thanks

Did anyone succeed at getting a ticket to Paramount? I"m trying and trying and trying--fan club yesterday and amex today, and they say they have no tix at ANY price range. Grrrrrrrrr...

In answer to another's question, there is VIP at Paramount, $549 buckaroos.

I got tickets on the Amex presale this AM, right at 10:00 AM. Things seemed sold out (again) pretty quickly.

Don't forget the KFOG presale on Friday.

Those VIP tix are $549 X 2 !

Any more news on a second performance?

Was frustrated as hell yesterday; couldn't get presale tix even though I was logged on at exactly 10. Tried again today with the Amex presale. First try 2 tix came up for row uu. Like a fool, rejected them to try for better seats, like front row in the balcony. Stupid. But kept trying and then, voila, two tix in row tt. At least I'm in. Thank you Lord.

I guaranmotherfntu that our dear Leonard couldn't navigate this on line ticket sales process to save his soul and wouldn't bother! Hence, I still feel connected to him...wrote a song about it...here it goes.... Seriously, I have to laugh about not being able to score a ticket in Oakland and the fact that I may not see him live, ever, unless he stops by for lunch. But I'll keep working on some ideas. Enjoying the youtube videos and listening to the NPR podcast now. Some damn good stuff!
