Texas?

I just heard general tickets sales start this Saturday at 10am for the Dallas show. I was debating on whether to go to a ticketmaster location or try my luck online. Any ideas/past experiences/suggestions? Are any of you in this area going to camp out or anything? Do people still do that?

I live in Mansfield and I'm thinking of going to Arlington and camping outside a Ticketmaster locale for a few hours. I just don't know if getting tickets in person rather than over the internet will increase the likelihood of getting my hands on some GAs.

That's my worry too...I don't want to camp out and then wait in line...and then find out that someone online snagged my tickets just before I get to the front...I wish I had a wireless PC or something...then I could do both.

If you go brick and mortar
Find the most remote, desolate location if you want to buy tickets from a physical location. A place with a small population, some Dallas locations are far out, but with a large population (Plano, Fort Worth). Find the list, call Ticketmaster, think obscrure. Verify they are selling. Even if there is a "lottery" system, find the smallest line.

Using the phone:
You can also call the Ticketmaster # for any city, find a city that is not selling anything major Saturday morning. The line in Dallas will be packed.

Back during ZooTV, I went to rural grocery store in Marble Fallas, an hour west of Austin and got decent seats. The Erwin Center line was 500 people, the line at Marble Falls was 40 and I was in the top 10.

Using the phone and internet is the luck of the draw.

The odds of getting good seats during the general sales are slim. You game will be to get the best you can.

I would buy whatever you could, and try again during the inevitable second show.

My best advice is to join U2.com and stay a member (renew on the off years when there or no tours), eventually you will earn some level of seniority. In spite of the trouble, they have shown the "intent" to take care of veteran fan club members.

Let me do some quick research. Lewisville is better than other options.

Here are the locations for all of Texas.

I would look into Tyler. Far out, not incredibly large. I would find out their system.

Do they have wristbands?
Do they allow camping?
Is it a lottery?
Does the location have WiFi?

Back during my Marble Falls-Zoo TV Trip, I had to go to Marble Falls twice, once to get the wristband, and then to get tickets on Saturday morning.

During the 3rd leg of the Elevation tour- I stood in line at Fiesta in Dallas. There were about 100 people there. By the time I got to the counter, they gave me seats behind the stage. I bought them anyways but then I called TM from my cell phone and ended up getting front row on the 2nd deck to Reunion Arena. So, my suggestion is to be on the phone with TM while in line if possible.

I thought you couldn't buy them over the phone...doesn't the TM website say that or am I confused? Tyler is like three hours away...you think it's worth it?

I think the pre-sale was only on the internet. The General sale probably has phone sales. Somebody can verify that, I was just assuming, why would the general sale not be on the phone line?

If you want to increase your odds, Wichita Falls and Tyler will have better odds of getting good seats.

If you can't go that far out, Frisco and Lewiville are better than Dallas proper, Arlington, etc.. But, being inside of the Metroplex is going to mean lines. U2 has lots of fans in the suburbs.

If you are serious, I would call Ticketmaster or the actual location you are interested in buying tickets at (The Foley's, FYI, etc...).

The internet might work, I just don't trust it for high traffic shows.

Yes, should work.

I would visit the location and let them know, make sure they can pull up Dallas and Houston shows. They might have to look it up in the computer, but I am almost 100% certain they can get your tickets.

Here is what goes on sale Saturday, listed on the Ticketmaster San Antonio page, the two Motley Crue shows are not in San Antonio. This is the competition at San Antonio locations.

Breaking Benjamin
Sunset Station Fri, 03/11/05
Motley Crue
American Bank Center Arena Sat, 03/12/05
Motley Crue
Laredo Entertainment Center Sat, 03/12/05
