Okay, nevermind. I figured out how to get tickets. But there's a $9 service ("convenience") charge! Grrrr.... I'm afraid to wait and buy them at the box office because I'm afraid it will sell out.

Thanks, but I just sucked it up and bought them. I'm going to wait and see if there are still Philly tickets left after the pre-sale (usually pre-sales just have a limited number of tickets, right?). I'm buying tickets to see Ed Harcourt in Philly on May 18th (the day after Doves tickets go on public sale), so I guess I'll wait and see how much money I have after that weekend before I buy the Doves tickets for Philly.

Are you going to the Doves show?

Yeah, I've been trying to get tickets for that show for the past few days, but for some reason, they aren't up on tickets.com. I'm definitely going, though. Probably to Philly too.

Yay! You won't be disappointed. We should meet up at the show. I'll be leaving after work, so I don't know what time I'll be getting there, but I'm going to try to get there as early as possible so I can get a good spot and swoon over Guy Garvey.

True. See them in small venues while you can and they're not too big a band yet. Well, nothing really stopped as all from seeing and getting tickets for big bands like U2, but that's a different issue.

Anyway, a cheaper option for cds would be to get them from ebay (if they're auctioned cheaply, ofcourse). Another thing is to buy them from secondhand cd stores if you're not that picky about getting used ones. That's where I usually buy my cds now. OTOH, I saw Elbow's cd at Olsson's bookstore selling for about $13. Not bad.

I caught Elbow with Pete Yorn here in Chicago a couple weeks ago. I liked Elbow but unfortunately only saw the last few songs of their performance.

I am eager with anticipation for the new Doves album. Lost Souls in my mind was the best album of 2000 (apologies to PJ Harvey's Stories... and U2's ATYCLB) and they were great at the Metro here in Chicago last April. I have yet to hear the new Doves single but I'm told it's great.

Cannot wait for 6/13...this is a great tour billing and makes sense for both bands to tour together (like audience).

I think I like the new album even better than Lost Souls, which I didn't think would be possible. It's a lot happier, but not in a cheesy way. There are some tracks up on the Doves site . "Words" is my favourite.

I've heard that the US version may be like the US version of Lost Souls in that it'll include at least four bonus tracks, so I'm really excited about its release.

If you look at amazon uk and amazon us that looks to be the case.
