Pre-sale doesn not mean better seats. I've always done better with day of. Or mail order for that matter.

I was assuming that the presale would have better seats than Ticketmaster. So is that not a safe assumption? I hate to give ticketmaster business, but if they're going to be more reliable with equally good seats, it's hard not to go the safe route. What's been anyone's experience??

In my experience, it seems like "pre-sale" is just a marketing tool, to rachet up demand for seats. I would only get hard to get
tickets up front. The rest I'll see what pop's up down the road. I've gotten really good seats, day of.

I'm so psyched I can't believe it.

Its the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I will be on vacation anyway, all week.

I can get the Friday off for Chicago too.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

Hey Sue, I am sure Chester has more experience with this than I do, but I just want to say that I had a good result with Front Gate pre-sale for St. Augustine in summer. I got a center seat third row (where the permanent hard seats began). Of course, I always only purchase a single. Maybe that makes for a better result.

Congrats to Pennsyltucky getting Wilkes-Barre AND State College!! It looks to me as if Futhur is at least trying to spread it around. Lewis, I hear ya about venue size. However, I see it as a needed move in order to make room for more folks that want to attend, but might not be able to get in if they played the cozier, smaller joints. (I am sure you realize this as well)

Good for all of y'all getting shows. Meanwhile, I feel happy and fortunate that Furthur got to Florida TWICE in 2011!

Peace

Yes there is one at the Poconos.

The logistics of this tour is liek a tennis match!!!!! I am hoping to catch 4 or 5. I was even surprised no travel date in between most which could possibly allow adding another show at a venue.

Anyway, Thank you guys for another great tour with great music

They're ok. Like a small version of Ticket Master. They will charge a ton of fee's, but fairly reliable. They are sometimes late
with tickets though.
