When do the dates and tickets usually go up for for the Beacon runs? I am trying to fly out from SoCal this year, and I want to get a jumpstart on plans. Thanks!

"Sorry for your troubles. I'd say write down your password so you do not have to change it again (though I have no idea why a change would alter your registration date). Also check your account under the menu to confirm your email the site shows. Or get an AMEX card-the Optima is fee-free, and works in the presale.

I am very surprised that the admins chose not to post the Peach o Gram email in the Newsletters section as they always have. They no doubt got a lot more PMs than otherwise would have been the case had they done so.



If you are motivated, keep checking TM for the shows you want. They will pop up from time to time going forward. The 7-10 days before the show is the most likely time, but last yr they were occasionally popping up from the onsale onward. I found last yr that Tues afts at about 4-5 pm was a good time to look. Good luck!"

Thanks, Brock...Yes, I was sorry that my registration date changed from Dec 17 to Jan. 1 with a change of pw. I read in this forum that the same thing happened to someone else too. I have the pw written down now. I did get a ticket, because I am coming in from out of state and didn't want to wait until the last minute. Plus I was coming to NYC this year at the time of the shows anyway. Your words are much appreciated...--a

Finally hit on my favorite area! Tuesday March 13, Lower Balcony. Row A, Seats 7-13. Psyched and over-ready for a great night.

First year without my good friend Barry, who passed away last year from 9/11 related Cancers.

Thanks to all involved for the presale.

See you at the Beacon.

Sorry for your loss man.

Stay safe.

FDNY,

Looks like we both got the FU Package being offered by the band this year. Something is very different this year and it ain't good. I was planning on making the 3.24.12 show (my 65th) my last ABB show. Apparently that happened on December 3, 2011 in Boston. These sales were a **** show in my opinion and I am done with them.
It has been like this for the last 3 years or so as far as I can remember. Before that, it was easier and cheaper to get tickets.

I stopped by The Beacon on 1/4 to ask when they would be selling ABB tix. I was told that any remaining tickets would be available at the box office on Saturday 1/7 at 11AM. I did not get a chance to stop by today, but will make a point of stopping by Sunday (if they are open) or Monday to check if they have any tickets available. I was lucky with the pre-sales and got tickets for all 3 Saturday shows. (Big thanks to Lana & co) But I will check out the Beacon box office and post my findings here. Those of you who were unable to get tickets, please remember that more tickets are usually released for sale during the run.

BTW, Do They Sell Tickets At The BEACON Box Office At The 10AM Sale Time As Well?
I Know They Sell Em' Before The Shows. Maybe They Have Alot Of Tix Too.
That Would Make It Harder To Get Tickets Too.
SO GLAD I'm In!
I Hope They Sell The "Instant Live" Shows This Year


They did not sell the tickets at the box office today. I went. There were 4 other people there. I asked about ABB tickets and was told they do not sell them day of. The other 4 people all were like "What?!" "What a waste of time!" hahaha all of us were there for ABB tix.

Yes Suzie, the email is out. Based on your registration date, you qualify for the presale. You have to be registered by 12-23, so you should be good.

Anyone who registers later will have their tix cancelled, even if they do somehow get the passcode via email or otherwise.

I would check my spam filter or, failing that, go to the Newsletters section and click view past newsletters. In the past, the full email was viewable that way. As of now it is not posted, but maybe it will be later (or your email may just be delayed). Or try the AMEX presale if none of that works.


Brock, I registered before that but was not sent the newsletter/pw. Writing to an admin (rowland) i was told that they didn't have me under that email, and yet that was the email I used to sign in. I am also signed up for the newsletter. Do you have any idea what could be the problem so I could get in next year? I do think making the newsletter available online as you say has been done would be a great idea so that all eligible members can take advantage of the pre-sale. (i was going to PM you, couldn't find how --if you want to PM me, please do.) Thanks.

Edited to add: Thanks to everyone who said standing is for O and not L. Last year I was in O and had a good time. Through regular sale, by buying "silver" (eek) I did secure a ticket on the aisle row M, left center...if anyone is going on the 14th, please lemme know!

Ooops, I see my registration date shows 1/1 even though it said 12/17 for me at first. I guess I had to change my pw too so it pushed me up. Maybe I'll have better luck next time.

Was unable to find any upper balcony for March 10th during pre-sale and had the same experience this morning at 10am. I eventually called TM to talk to a live person. There were two singles left in the entire Beacon for 3/10, yet looking at stubhub there are plenty. WTF!

As a devoted fan who is trying to make it to the Beacon for the 11th straight year, this is nothing but disappointing. Yeah sure i can go buy from stubhub but it seems the real fans get screwed.

If anyone has tickets they want to sell (3 please) for upper or lower balc on 3/10, please let me know.

Thanks, had to vent...

It sucks trying so hard and getting nothing. Tickets go on sale but you might as well be buying from aftermarket. They have them but you can't get one the old way. Whatever the market will bear but this sucks. I tryed at 10 but no luck. how do I get presale? Started seeing shows in 74 can't believe it has come to this

Just checked again on TicketBASTARD. If you'd like to sit in the 6th row, Orch LEFT, you can get two seats for A THOUSAND F'ING DOLLARS!

Didnt even bother to look at 10.... always sold out before it goes onsale after so many various presales and package offerings. Never received the presale password until it was too late.
The last three years I got tickets through this site so I am not too worried, if you live in the NYC area, tickets always drop a few weeks before the shows... always great seats also. Unfortunately I travel from boston so need a little more notice then a dropped pair. Hoping I get lucky with my friends on this site again who can't use their seats!

Same "luck" here...Absolutely nothing…my entire family from their respective work also got shut out…we got one hit for the 225 per ticket…and then actually lost them anyway somehow (which I may be happy about). Through the roof…I am hoping that more tix will be released later on. Tix prices are really high this year and we can’t seem to get them anyway. Is it fans, scalpers, or companies eating up all these tix? I just don’t think its all the fans this time around.

I was fortunate to get a few balcony tix via presale…I am super grateful about that!

i hear ya FDNY....no standard admission seats but if you want the "gold package' they are there....total BS.....
the Brothers should fix this.....us hardcore fans deserve the "gold" seats because in reality we pay their salaries by going to numerous shows, by numberous shirts and cd's and support all their side projects.....

Wow....what a disheartening morning....

I was sitting here at my computer, ticketmaster loaded and I searched for tickets RIGHT at 10am. I couldn't get anything in the center loge in ANY price range for a Tuesday night. This is getting rediculous. I love the Brothers, but someone is F'ing us regular old fans.

How many tickets get set aside for these "Gold" packages and what not. I even tried searching for best available on Price Tier 1 and got no matches! This is truly B.S.!


....and what a surprise....StubHub has over 500 tickets for many of the run and it's only 10:20am. At this point, I'd rather pay them all the extra money!
