got my Christmas Jam tickets!

#73573 2 years, 9 months ago
well I had my brother get them anyway while I was at work - who else is going?

is the whole place GA and anyone know what the set up is (partial seating, all GA standing room only ect.)?

from the reviews I've heard it sounds like a long time to be standing but that dosn't really matter to me, ill sit right down on the floor if I want during any breaks

Congrats! You sure do get around. I would love to check this out, but too far for me.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Me too! Although similar story, someone else actually did the getting, I just get to go!

All GA unless you got the extra special (aka extra expensive) VIP tickets. Get there early if you plan to ever sit down during this marathon event as the balcony seating fills up fast and with Phil & Friends there this year, it may be even more crowded.

Hope it does not snow!

Good for you Mushy. Sounds like a hell of a show.
How far is the drive for you? I guess if you couldn't make it to NYE, this is good too.

Mad props to anyone who gets tix for the Christmas Jam!

I've lived in Asheville for almost 15 yrs. and have yet to make it! I've either been out of town or working on that night (the local economy is tourist-dependant). And I got shut out the handful of times I've attempted..... This year I'm just too broke.

By all accounts, it is a grueling evening that leaves some folks just plain exhausted and jammed-out. The civic center is all seating, and I understand that it's very loosely reserved cuz it's such a long night and people like to roam around. Check out some of the local brews (Asheville is THE microbrew capital!) and just pace yourself. It is a guaranteed night to remember!!!
If unable to dance, I'll crawl.

according to mapquest its about 13 hours and 8 minutes, I'll be leaving friday after work and would like to get halfway before stopping at a rest stop for some sleep. I don't think I'll sleep to long considering all the NoDoz i will probably have taken, If I have to ill stop at a couple seperate stops for some rest. When I do a lot of caffine I usually sleep 4-5 hours then I'm wide awake so I think ill make good time.

I really wanted to do NYE but I don't trust taking my truck that far and I don't have the money now anyway weather I drive or take a plan, I'd need a hotel and everything ...... its my goal after this year to not miss another NYE or any Red Rocks shows and most likely I'll have to fly out solo for those - enless my brother gets a job and has some time off work (no offense to him obviously) - or if I end up with a bunch of extra money ill probably just fly us both out....

Hey Now! Good for you Brah. Tried the internet pre, but it sold out in like seconds. Some folks have figured out how to do pre-sale, pre-sale I think! So, mail order hand wringing it is for a awhile..pleez! The mail oder NY ticks were 90 bucks per! What's the 15 extra dollars for the comemorative ticket thing?
