Got 4 seats in the Loge row G for Friday 3/16. Taking wife and both daughters, all are ABB fans. I have been following them from the early 70's down in Georgia.

We stayed last year at the Iroqouis down on 45th and Broadway. Good hotel, couple of blocks from Times Square to the south and Central Park to the north. About $200 a night for two. Took a cab last year but subway access nearby.

Can't wait, this was late Christmas presents for the whole family

just got row h loge 3/24 through amex $342.18 for 2 tix

I think I'm only going to 2 shows because it really is a lot if you want to go multiple nights between dinner, the cab ride home, etc

I guess (I say tongue in cheek) my Wanee credit on moogis will be worth something

does anyone think there's any shot at video this year?

I never go the presale info either. I also have an AMEX card and cannot figure out how to buy with that presale info. Can anyone PM me some info...please help. I want to see the ABB and they never seem to come to the West Coast, so I will be flying to NYC if I can get tix this year. Thanks !


After you click on which date you would like to attend: select the Number of tickets you would like from the dropdown menu just beneath "American Express Cardmember Presale." This is the column where there is ONLY a dropdown menu for number of tickets. There is no box to the right of the drop-down for a password.

Then, instead of picking my price I wanted: I went to the bottom and picked what area I'd like to sit in. From there, only certain prices will appear in the "price" drop-down. I'd probably do 'best available' first and see what you get. If you are unhappy with the price, then follow the same steps and pick a price AFTER you choose the area in which you want to sit.

It took me a while to find tickets to the general area where I wanted to sit. But I kept adjusting the order in which I selected items from the drop-down menu's. The steps I told you about above were the most successful for me. I hope everything works out for you! Be patient! But remember this: Even if you aren't 100% happy with the seat you get in pre-sale. It is NOT easy to get tickets when they hit general admission.. Some get lucky. But if you don't: You're going to be paying a pretty penny on mark-up from face value. My best advice, especially if you are travelling across country, is try to make pre-sale work. Good luck!

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.

Stay safe.

I don't fly but I think it would be easiest to go into Newark. From there you can go through either of the tunnels depending on where you are staying in the Manhattan. I've been going to the Beacon to see the ABB since 2003 and it is always a great time! See you there.

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!

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.

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.....

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!

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!

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!

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

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

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...
