11 October, Voicst, Paradiso, Amsterdam

And my wishlist still has some names & dates on it.

I just scored a 6th row seat to see Beck in Abq Sept. 23.

Finally. Last time I had 2nd row and couldn't go. I figured he'd never come back here, or at least not so soon, so I'm surprised and happy.

Congrats, GG! (He said in a high-pitched, envious voice).

I tried and tried at work, but to no avail. There was such a demand for tickets that every single telecommunication system in the building went down. Just two people on my floor managed to get tickets....crazy.

Should be an awesome show. He's just a classic (and fantastic) performer. I hope they add another show, but somehow I doubt it...he seems to like a set schedule, no matter the demand.

As a small consolation, there's always this: Elton John Live Concert at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (Saratoga, NY) Jul 25, 1982 - Free streaming live music, Live concert recordings, Live music downloads, Classic rock concerts One of the best concert recordings I've heard. When you crank it through a home stereo system, it can even make dish-washing an enlightening experience...Someone Saved My Life Tonight.

Also, on that site, there's a couple of shows from some band named "Pink Floyd."

Aw, I'm sorry you didn't manage to get tickets. I think it was just pure luck that my mom managed to get two. When I (a veteran online ticket purchaser and all) tried on my computer, I got stuck with an endless loading page. That happened to a lot of people, it seems... If you aren't able to get tickets through a friend or an advertisement, try looking for tickets on the day of the show. A friend of mine managed to score front row seats to the first Leonard Cohen show at Holy Heart by logging into admission.com at about 11:00 AM.

I think it's crazy that these latest concerts in NL have sold out so quickly. It just goes to show; if high-profile musicians tour in Atlantic Canada, people WILL buy tickets to see them. There seems to be this huge misconception that there's no market for big concerts anywhere outside of Ontario, Alberta and BC. I swear, if developers built a 20,000 capacity arena in either Halifax or St. John's, large acts would make a killing out here.

Wolfgang's Vault.

...Endless loading page. I had about eight windows opened, hoping against hope at least one of them would find a way in...grrrr.

I’ll definitely try on the day of the show through those options you mention. I can just imagine the prices scalpers will be charging because of the demand, but I’d feel slimy if I went that route. I overheard a coworker say the St. John’s shows are already on eBay, for ridiculous amounts.

Great point about the market misconceptions. Elton could have easily sold out six or seven shows here, or one larger venue…if it existed. The St. John’s area, in particular, is quickly becoming one of the most prosperous regions in the country--so we’re bound the see the same situation again, as the demand/money is there to lure the larger acts to come more often. It’s all about planning, and marketing—which, as we know, Mile One is abysmal at. For every Elton John and Bob Dylan, there are 100 Charlie Pride and “Monster Truck Madness” events.

We must build a new venue: Mile 2: The New Beginning.
