Unfortunately I will not be!

No shows in Ohio. U2 are the only band I will leave Ohio to see anymore, so sometimes I miss out, but with the kids and my job I can't really swing that anymore. Pretty bummed about these dates, but oh well!

I "won" GA tickets for the Monday show at MSG, closed out of the other gig... but I can just try for tickets the old fashioned way for that one.

I'm wondering how much of the floor the pit will take up and how crowded it'll be. They say anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 the floor. Here's hoping for a third.

Love the way they've been able to evolve their fan club ticketing to something that's fair for old and new fans alike and better than a majority of acts out there... Certainly anyone of their stature.

Nice pull for you, odds were at like 7% chance for GA for that show.

I did GA for 2 shows in Worcester in 2013, I'd say it was a little less than half the floor. Plenty of room towards the back of GA if you so choose. I got in line both nights just before doors opened and ended up 2 or 3 from stage in front of McCready both nights.
First night even that close to stage had plenty of space, 2nd night seemed packed in a bit tighter.

Waiting for the Fenway lottery.

I saw all the Pearl Jam tours from 1998 through 2006. I have not seen them since 2006 though. I hope to catch them on this new tour. What is this new tour for by the way? Is a new album about to come out?

"No tickets from the venue"... at 12:09? Funnily enough on the radio this morning they were talking about how Ticketmaster is rigged and tickets are held for scalpers. Assuming its true since tickets are already on stubhub.

That was much worse than U2. I managed U2 tickets about an hour after they went on sale following the initial long waits.

So when this happens and they say tickets on the first sale day aren't available at the box office, do they sometimes get released to the MSG box office?

Got one in Sec 2 for the Monday MSG show, probably the best seat I have had for PJ! Not being in the fan club (have had technical difficulties every time I tried to sign up through the years) I am usually up in the heavens. A Sec 207 came up for the Sunday show on my tablet app after I scored the Monday ticket but I threw that one back.

12:09 I can live with. It's when it's 12:02, everything's sold out and there are thousands of tickets on stub hub that gets me.

Yeah they were still searching for my tickets in the queue at 12:02. I went from 7 minute wait to 45 minute wait to 9 minutes to 36 minutes...in about a 2 minute span haha. But yeah I saw on twitter people got messages that tickets were sold out at 12:02. There are now 1500 tickets on Stubhub, cheapest being at $145 each for nosebleeds...

I hear there's going to be an investigation into these scalpers using bots that get them hundreds of tickets at once. Its particularly bad in NY. Of course it'll probably do absolutely nothing to help or go nowhere.

The bots are an issue everywhere. The higher demand for the show, the more these scalper douchebags throw at it. I can remember the first PJ shows at Wrigley being sold out in under a minute, yet tickets were on stub hub by the thousands.

It really is sick.

The AG of NYS is trying to get the "paper tickets only" law in NY overturned, which would be a start.

I'm all in favor of electronic tickets that are tied to your account and can not be transfered without going through a certain protocol.

I'm especially thankful for Pearl Jam reserving all of the best tickets in the house for their fan club members. More bands need to follow suit.

I'm okay with losing out on tickets cause another fan got them more than I am losing out because some schmuck scalper
