You could always do both!! Prague is a beautiful city.

Prague is a magical city. I love the place. It won't be a terrible hardship to visit it again, but it would be a bit, erm, inconvenient. ;-)

Re: San Jose - got my pre-sale ticket

Hi Friends,

It's been awhile. So pleased that Mr. Cohen is returning to Northern Californa. Hooray for us! This is will the (lucky) 7th show for me. Every performance has been really fantastic. I had no problems getting my ticket. I wish I had read the post before making my seat selection...I got a good spot, but from reading the posts it's way off to the side, Floor Section 3, Row 3, Seat 10. Oh well, close to the dreamy Webb Sisters and Ms. Robinson, can't complain.

Not too worried about the venue, the talented crew will make it perfect. I saw Bowie a few years back at HP and was great.

I'll keep checking for a ticket if something better comes up, then I'll get that ticket.

I just hope we see a "Poka Dot Blouse" thrown on the stage! That was sooo cool when that happened in Oakland. Do it! I know we'll "Closing Time."

Chicano,
I snagged seats right next to you! I got all of these sets of seats and am looking forward to bringing a bunch of San Francisco friends to this show! I think I am going to keep the section FLR 1 seats for myself since the last 2 shows I have been on the 'angels' side. I did not see any seats in section FLR 2 come up and that is the middle section. Did anyone get FLR 2 at the presale? I am wondering who is going that was supposed to go to Red Rocks that missed out. I was going to try and hit up Vegas too but missed the presale and am thinking I missed my chance to get fantastic seats...

These are the seats I got at the presale:
section FLR 3, row 3, seats 11-12
section FLR 1, row 4, seats 10-11
section FLR 3, row 7, seats 10-11
section FLR 3, row 5, seats 3-4
section FLR 3, row 5, seats 5-6

We were able to get tickets for section three (in front of the angels) row 7. Maybe not the best seats but still they are on the floor and close enough. Just happy to get tickets! In Ottawa for the second show I was in row 200 or something, and not happy about it. But as the evening progressed I was swept away and had a great time. Just happy to be able to go this last :cry: concert. And I will see all of you people in section 1 at the meet up!
Shelia, looking forward to seeing you and Steve in San Jose!

Hi veteranfan,

The password is still available in the link provided. You must be signed in to the Forum to view it. The presale continues until Sunday but not sure what seats may still be available. Good luck.

LadyDi,
Are you going to San Jose? How did you do on the presale? Anyone else?

Hi Marsha,

I'm happy to hear that you managed to get tickets. I'm sure the atmosphere will be so electric that it won't matter where we are sitting.

I ended up buying two single tickets. I had to beg my work colleagues to drag me away from my computer or I would have kept on buying! Sometimes I look in the mirror and think "who is this person?" :D :D

I have a spare ticket near you in section 3, row 7, seat 4 if you know of a genuine fan who is still looking. The one that I will keep is section 1, row 2, seat 8.

Hi novabella,

Yes, yes, yes...I will be in San Jose and hope to meet you there! You seem to have a huge contingent following you! Wonderful. I have such mixed emotions, and am feeling so guilty, but I am happy...and not so happy. I'm in FLR 1, Row 2, Seat 3, which is about as far to the right as you can go. I am so disappointed that no seats were open for the fans in FLR 2, which is dead center...and no one seems to have a seat in Row one, anywhere. I discovered that the center section is all for the highly inflated VIP tickets....and of course, you are not able to purchase one ticket, but you must purchase TWO tickets. So the front row and the center section will be populated with people who may not even know who Leonard is, but go to all the "in" concerts....and have big bucks. His fans, many who have been with him for 40 years, are relegated to the sides. Well, you know what...with all the snooty types in the center, all of us on the sides will make sure he knows our love!

Take care...and look forward SO much to finally meeting you!
Diana

ps...I'll be in Vegas too...will you?

Wow, not many fan club sales. Tickets still available in the 7th row 9 hours after start of the sale.
The arena is having a presale starting on Friday at 10AM for the masses that get venue emails, so seats should start to go quickly.

Hi,
Like Mary above I bought two single tickets as I were not sure which was best, and I admit I am still not sure, but it looks like one is right next to the one Mary is going to keep:

Seat location: section FLR 1, row 2, seat 7
and
Seat location: section FLR 3, row 3, seat 5

If anyone knows the arena and which of these two seats is more central would be a great help. I am coming over from Australia and at this stage it is just me, my girlfriend came to the Sydney show and we both absolutely loved it but she can't make this one. I am so thrilled to have got tickets this close.

Graham,
I would opt to keep Section1, Row2, seat 8. You would be sitting next to Mary/Mollydog - how good does that get!?!?!?! Although on the other hand, your seat in Sec3, Row 3, seat 5 puts you on the Webb Sisters, Sharon Robinson side. From what I can surmise, the seats in that section start at #1 next to the center section. You have to make the final choice yourself. I for one would want to sit next to Mary :D .

Best regards,
Mary (also)

Hi Everyone,

I am VERY new to this forum and I believe it is already SUPER LATE for a chance at the presale tickets for the San Jose concert but it would be FANTASTIC if anyone could let me know where this password is posted. I am registered to this forum but I have no idea how this works - first time here, first time attempting to get a presale ticket - please help.
