Jarkko,

Is the "exclusive time" available to Forum members who did not buy their tickets in the pre-sale?

"I came by myself to a very crowded place, looking for someone with access to my pre- concert space"

Leonard from Montreal....same name,,,same town,,,no Golden Voice

Thank you LC tour management, Marie, and Jarkko for always showing concern for the members of this Forum. As you said, this will give us the opportunity to meet each other before the shows and not worry about potential long lines at 'will call' and the fear of being late :oops: . This is fantastic all around!

Best regards,
Mary

Do you know if we will be required to enter the theater immediately after getting the tickets or can we "go back for another round boys"?

I don't know which venue you're referring to, A Brick in the Wall. When I discussed the issue with a ticket seller at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, she told me that people would be "escorted" directly into the theater on picking up their tickets, and would not be able to go back outside and come in later.

the Chicago concerts ---- thx though...

Out of curiosity, any clue as to the nature, extent (and cost) of the merchandise?!?

yikes!! is this the cryptic good news we've been anticipating??

will some sort of "proof of fandom" be required (besides the overt pre-concert weeping that will surely occur)?

thank you jarkko and marie for your continual kindnesses & exceptions for us..

grateful,

That is indeed both welcome and thoughtful, which segues into those of us heading for the final concert at Red Rocks, Roman has done some excellent exploratory work, in terms of a pre-concert meet-up, with applause and appreciation from others such as Diana (Lady Di) and myself.

As this concert is now only eight weeks away,(and in light of the above information from Jarkko) we should probably start organising the get-together. Although I live many thousands of kilometres (oh, sorry, miles!) away, I'm very happy to help coordinate the event.

The first thing is to try ascertain how many people would like to meet up, the suggestion is for a pre-concert celebration in Denver on Monday 1st June, continuing on (after a little sleep!) through to the concert and afterwards. However this is probably not the perfect thread to continue this organising, so I will start another (with this same message).

Could I suggest that those who would like to participate / meet up, break bread and wine together, email me with names and numbers and suggestions, as a first base and we can then collectively organise what suits us all.
Cheers
All Good Things
Greg

Hi Greg,

I have emailed you but just wanted to say that I am REALLY looking forward to the Red Rocks concert and meeting up with everyone! The early entrance is a wonderful plus for all of us with will-call tickets! However, I don't want to rush things as that will be Leonard's final US concert :cry: , and there are so many between today and then :D

All the best,
Diana

Will those of us who have at various times left the Forum in a snit only to be unable to stay away from this heavenly congregation of wonderful weirdos be forgiven and welcomed back into the fold? Will we be required to diplay proof of identity in the form of membership card and/or psychic scars? Will we be detained at the door and forced to provide concise answers to hopelessly rhetorical questions?
Just wondering.

I believe that there's plenty of room in the Order of the Unified Prodigal Sons (and Daughters), but that's just my view of it.

Ah John...how nice now to be part of the "Order of the Unified Prodigal Daughters/Sons" and upgraded from Kens' "Cohen's Regiment of Monstrous Women"! I feel somewhat redeemed. 8) ;-) :D

Oh Diana, having spent such a nice time in your regal presence, I could never consider you a member of anything remotely described as "monstrous"! No, no, no.

Perhaps it's that northern English air that affects some and they get carried away! At least he is a devoted LC fan. Slightly different from a few others we've encountered, eh?

All best wishes on the tribute concert....how very special. For the families, the friends and the community. You are quite awesome.

All the best,
Diana

ps...great lyrics to "Silent Carousel" and great everything to "What Makes You Think About Me"..subtle country sound, and you are in very good voice!
