Presale for these shows has kinda been crappy for getting great seats, I got row z
in Minneapolis and that was 1 minute after they went on sale, they kept trying to shove
me up to the balcony. I hope you have better luck than the rest of us. Just a hint to check out
your local PBS stations, they are running the Royal Albert Hall DVD and offering tix for a donation. Good luck.

A trip back to NYC, is very tempting. We saw Joe last Friday in Ottawa, the guy puts on a good show and man can he play. I would have thought that he would have drawn a bigger crowd, but it seems to me a lot people up here have no taste. Good to see a young man carrying the torch.

I have a friend who like Joe, is a very good player, playing in Canada this week.
The first time there with his own band. We've been wondering what the crowds will be like.

Canada is great he will be well received no doubt about that. What I meant by people having no taste in Ottawa is. They will sell out a 20000 seater to see GAGA or whatever other flash in the pan comes through. But someone who offers true talent and professionalism just doesn’t get the promotion they deserve. But I guess that could be said for a lot of markets. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of music fans in Ottawa, we have a great new Blues radio station (DAWG) not to mention the Bluesfest and the Jazz Festival so it’s not from lack of exposure.
So who is your buddy? Is he coming to Ottawa, maybe I’ll go check a show.

Crappy presale seats. Not a penny of my money spent. I decided no more money for crappy seats EVER for ANYONE. Have row A for Joe in Philly. Dolan can take the Beacon and shove it.

Yepper.
And I'm not going to pay a weeks salary in order to get a good seat either!
Going to see 'Lil Ed do 2 90 minutes set's, for $10.00, and I'll be front and center.

I finally got a nice row B right of center in the general sale but I had to call Ticketmaster. I think the problem was that the limit was 8 tickets per household. That is like an open invitation to the scalpers. Well, it should be a great show. It's the first time Joe and his band are performing at the Beacon and that should be a real high for them and thus, a great show for us.

Just got 3 Row N right center. Happy with that, especially after what was coming up in that BS presale. I'm glad for Joe that he seems to be finally gaining enough popularity to be moving into some bigger halls, but selfishly sorry that this may be the end of seeing him in intimate places like the Ridgefield Playhouse or Paramount in Peekskill for a while. Gonna miss that. He's certainly worked hard for it and deserves all he can get.

Row N's are still good seats. I went for one ticket so that always gets me closer. By the time I got on to the computer I was closed out of Orchestra, so I figured to call TM. And it was successful. But a few more minutes who knows. Joe's popularity is growing for sure, but I still attribute the quick sales at the Beacon to the scalpers/brokers. I had no problem at the Philly show getting a great seat on line. It was a theater so they sell their own tickets and scalpers don't target those kind of venues too often. In a recent interview Joe talks about liking to play the theaters so I think there will still be plenty of shows in them around the country. If he ever sells out Madison Square garden on his own, then i would start to worry about the venues in the future. :-) Till then, he will be in decent sized venues. His shows in the area do seem to have a solid turnout the last year or two which is great since he built his career mostly in Europe. I hope the Beacon sells out for him. That would be a nice achievement.

The Beacon show is a SATURDAY in November. I don't see the show not selling well. Plenty of time.
Is this show being billed as "An Evening with..."
If not, there's still time to add at least a half-ass act as opener to help sell the show.

Every JB show I've been to he has headlined has been "An Evening with". Usually he starts right on the time advertised and plays his a$$ off without taking a breath for almost two hours. Seen him open a few acts also, but that was a long time ago.

Joe doesn't need to have an opener. He has a good management team and they have enough money to keep the band on the road if some of the shows don't go over the guarantee. Moreover, they know how to get the word out about Joe and the band and well, let's say their sale in April for a November show should tell you something about how organized and professional his management team is.

I saw him last month in Milwaukee and was amazed at the energy he has, he came out and just rocked for 2 hours and 20 minutes, if he talked to the crowd for more than 2 minutes through out the whole show I would be surprised. I put up a vine of that show.

He does talk some. In fact I find him kind of funny. He has a dry sense of humor but he pulls it off. He talked about this fan who was huffing and puffing, out of breath to make the meet and greet, who apologized profusely for being late to it. Joe said, with a real dead pan tone, "imagine that, traffic on the LIE on a Friday night." He is funny. And he does like people to be on time. I learned the hard way, walking in in the middle of a song my first time seeing him. He starts his shows on time, so don't be late. He isn't. And he's made that clear a few times at his shows. LOL.

Some people have also mentioned they find his stage persona a little "affected" or "arrogant." I think, because he started to perform so early in his life, that he's had to learn an approach to being on the stage. I don't think he is arrogant at all. I like that he moves around on stage and that he plays to the different sections to the audience, not just front and center. He gives everyone a chance to see him play. And he does talk to the audience a little bit each show. It isn't necessary but it's nice.

And there is no intermission. There's a line in one of Joe's songs that says he takes care of business and I think that's true. I don't think he cares for the things that happen usually during intermission. I don't get the sense he likes all the hangers on. He does regularly have fan meet and greets but I get the sense they are not the free for all that often happens in rock. He is rather smart in that regard, imho.

I talked to him after the show and found him to be very personable and humble. He does do some "posing " while playing but if I had a few thousand people to come see me I would prolly do it to. He is very taper and photog friendly.
