It wouldn't be too bad now either. But I cannot stand the Hollywood Bowl.
Yeah, if there was a date closer to Minneapolis, I'd probably go, but I'm not going to go out of my way to get a ticket this time around, especially since I saw them in St. Paul last summer.

Is Red Rocks the smallest venue on the entire tour(9k?)?

Certainly can't pass up seeing both The Police AND Elvis Costello. Schweet.

Saratoga Springs August 1 might work for me. It's a long trip, but it'd be a fun show, I'm sure, and it would mean I'd finally--after 11 years of trying--get to see Elvis Costello.

All dates also have Elvis Costello and the Imposters as special guests.
Oh please be true.

The Police are my favorite band. I have dreamed of seeing them live as long as I can remember. Oh please be true.

It's definitely true. Copy and pasted from an official Police email.

ACK!!!! MAJOR dilemma. Do I spend the $100 (ouch) to join the fan club to get presale tix? Do I take my chances with the regular sale? Do I wait and take even more chances with Craigs List or StubHub? Or do I save my $$ for the 2009(?) U2 tour?????

I am tearing my hair out over this!

It's an easy ticket to get on the secondary market, unless they only do one show at redrocks/Hollywood Bowl or you're planning to do one of the last nights near NYC

Oh God no. They're getting enough money from you to simply go to the concert. There were plenty of empty seats at the show I saw in LA last June. You'll be able to get seats, especially if you're not obsessed with "good" seats.

I kind of AM obsessed with 'good' seats, since I had really good seats the first two times and it would be a letdown to get crappy ones.

I think I might just take my chances with the regular sale and/or StubHub (I've had good luck with them before and got tix for less than face value)

The funny thing is that, for a few minutes, I toyed with the idea of not going???

Elvis at the Bowl
I'd love to go... But I hate that all the decent tickets for the HB are a fortune, and if you are sitting far away, it's not as enjoyable. The Bowl can be a pain in the arse, I understand your pain Martha. Last show I saw there was Genesis in the rain. They "cancelled" the encore, and we were halfway back to the car (you know how far a walk that can be, especially in the rain), and I had lost my cellphone. Had to (salmon) walk back into the bowl and try to retrace our steps and find the seats (not ours) that we were in Luckily hubby found it, but still. What a long cold wet night that was... and disappointing not to get the encore

We park in the outlying neighborhood for free and walk, and walk, and walk.
