That was the toughest presale I've seen. Nothing for me for 15 minutes. Then got Row B Lower Balc for 3/9. Not great but I'm in.


Must be the twilight zone - my exact experience (even same row) for 3/8. If Rod Sterling sits next to me I will warn you a day in advance

Congrats to everyone who got decent seats during the presale. While I am appreciative that they give us a pre sale, I have done extremely better during the regular onsale for the past 4 or 5 yrs. back in the day this pre sale was the best thing since sliced bread Always could get premium seats, now its hot or miss and when u hit its rarely premium seats.

That said , Beacon fever has begun

Was offered loge, Row G, for $171 (including all fees of course) a ticket. That's too pricey for me for that type of seat.
Was then offered Orchestra way under the overhang for $110 (with fees), Row U or something. Will never get seats under there again. Did it once during the 40th run, and regretted it. In my opinion, the sounds sucks under there.
Was then offered Lower Balc, Row D, almost dead center. BINGO...took those.
Checked back again and there were some Lower Balc, Row A off to the side a bit. But I don't like first row lower balcony due to the safety railing...I'm always peaking over or under it to get a good view. So was not sad to see a "better" row pop up.

So I'm a very happy camper and excited to see them again at the Beacon! Missed them last year due to some personal stuff. That broke my ten year streak. Time to start another streak.

FWIW, my tix are for 3/9 (Wednesday), and did all this within the first ten minutes of the presale.

There too; this way I have someone to blame if it isn't the best night of the run

Always go the second Friday (feel they've had some shows under their belt; don't go Sat cause that's date night with the wife and she won't see the bro's since someone threw up on her boots) and it's been kind the last few years

2012 - Nels Cline; Bill Evans

2011 - Sco

2010 - Chris Jensen/Danny Louis

2009 - a guy named Eric

there will be no Kid Rock there even if Pamela Andreson is naked next to me

I suspect we've all been down this road before, why is it a shock?

I rarely get anything on the pre sale.

Wait for the general sale, better chances.

Yea, was definitely weird today, first ten mins I was getting shut out all over on diff dates, then the ticks all of a sudden started showing up...of course mostly lodge and balcony on week nights. So for this run I took Row A balcony on a week night (13th) even though I prefer the floor.....

Now I'll try for floor on the other sales. I figure I'd secure some ticks now with fan presale-- so in case I get shut out on other at least Im in. If I score the floor in next sale and cant go both nights, I know someone will buy balcony A.. at face, well I think so anyway, lol??

See you all there...

Right after I got the Orch L tickets I (being of sound mind, body and OCD) kept checking and three back row S orch not too far to the side. Damn it; that's the sweet spot. First or second row of price level 2 but not under the overhang

I was able to get a couple of more shows during the Amex pre sale today. Scored Upper Balcony seats for a Tuesday and a Wednesday show. I'll be attending 5 shows this year, the two weekday shows in the Upper Balcony and three weekend shows (3/1 3/9 3/16) in the Lower Balcony. I spent a total of $494 for my tickets. I do not think that that is an unreasonable amout of money considering today's market and what other bands are charging. I look forward to meeting all the great people here who are coming to my neighborhood for the 2013 Beacon Run!
