San Jose Show

Anyone else notice that on April 9th, there is already an event scheduled (two if the NHL gets back in action) at the HP Pavilion?

Also, I've never been to this arena. How is the security about letting fans on the property to line up for GA hours before the show?

I've e-mailed the booking manager, so we'll see if I get a response. The date is also not listed the Ticketmaster site, but is listed on the pre-sale site. Hmmmmmmm

I spoke to an operator there and she knew nothing about a U2 show being on their schedule

It's finally listed on Ticketmaster.

Perhaps the world famous San Jose Stealth has rescheduled their game, but there is still a Sharks game at 2 pm. I know the NHL season is on hold, but I don't believe that games scheduled for 2+ months out have been officially cancelled yet..... ???

This is too weird. What are they going to do about that game and people that have already bought tickets??

Yeah, something smells fishy to me. I can understand a lacrosse game being rescheduled easily since I doubt that many fans would be affected, but if the NHL suddenly starts back up, there is no way a concert could be put on that evening considering the game would get over at about 5 pm.

The only other major arena I know of down there is the Oakland Arena, and they are not booked (as far as I can tell) for the 9th. Maybe that's the back-up plan if the NHL gets going by that time??

O.K. Now I'm trying to contact a columnist for the San Jose Mercury News to see if he knows any details. We'll see.

That's kind of funny....

(not really for you guys, but I work in events, and have to deal with double bookings from time to time.) My guess is that the Lacrosse game will be rescheduled.
