thanks STING2

Oh, and I still didn't win the lottery on Sunday, but I think I matched the Mega number, so I get a buck back. I can put it in the Police fund

They are probably going to wait to see how tickets sell this weekend in Canada and later on Tuesday for New York and Boston, in order to determine when and what venue they will play in Washington DC and Philadelphia.

Its only a rumor, but they might play Washington DC in July/August, and wait to play Philadelphia in November after they finish the European tour.

There are second level close to the back of the arena tickets going for nearly 2k.

Looks like most other dates are waiting to see how the shows this weekend sale before they put up tickets for sale.

Damn. I'm going to hear jokes about 2K Police tickets all year. I'm going to try to go to a show but with prices like this it's unlikely that I'll make it.

Ticketmaster prices are $50, $90, and $225. As long as you can get tickets through ticketmaster, you won't have to worry about thousand dollar tickets. You can improve your chances by getting a Police fan club membership for $100 at www.thepolicetour.com . Yep, its a lot for a membership, but if you look at it as simply the additional cost of the tickets you buy, especially if your buying four tickets, its not all that much, plus it nearly insures you'll get tickets to the show you want to see and you won't have to pay scalper prices if the show sales out before your able to obtain tickets.

I'll probably give those a shot.

Give the $90 dollar tickets a shot, unless you don't mind sitting behind the stage as that is what I think the $50 dollar tickets will be. I actually don't know if they will have rear stage seating on this tour, which would mean the $50 dollar tickets would be the nosebleads at the back which is actually not bad in a basketball arena.

A-reserve for U2 in Australia was A$200 (GAs were A$99).

And as for what the Police might be asking to be paid, the fact that Aus/NZ got fucked around for most of 2005 before any tour announcement was made obviously shows that they were asking more than most promoters were willing to cough up.

(and let's not get into why we never got Elevation )

During the webcast they made the mention of the tour being as stripped down a setup as possible, including no extra musicians.

I read as being a 360 setup in Arenas. I'd also like to see them turn down the chance of selling those tickets if fans are clamouring for any chance to see the band.

Did the Police ever do 360 setups in the 80's?

How did people get presale codes? Glad to see that there will be a date in Miami...would have been too crazy to fly somewhere to see them in late summer/fall because that's when I first start college!
