got 2 singles in the $95 range for the second Fenway show..they're not that far apart from each other (just one section and a few rows apart), so I guess I'm keeping them.
I wonder if the second show will be much different from the first?

Unfortunately, the setlists will probably be the same if you use Sting's solo tours as an example. Sting is great for offering different arrangements of songs compared to their recorded version, but while on tour, he rarely makes changes in setlists and the changes that do occur are not a night to night change. He usually changes a song or 2 on different legs of the same tour or eliminates songs to make a shorter show as a tour goes along. I do hope though that on this Police tour they do alter setlists by at least a couple songs when playing 2 or more nights in the same city.

There are still fan club tickets available for the second Boston show, several on the field. Given the uncertainty of how fast both shows will sell on Tuesday, it would be wise to go ahead and get tickets through the fan club.

This might mean that almost all of the first Fenway Park show tickets were sold through the fan club meaning those that have decided to wait for the general on sale to the public will be unlikely to get tickets for the first show.

I've heard there are still plenty of fan club tickets available in Canada.
Fenway is always 2 shows for the selected artist, there was never a question about if there would be a 2nd show. They wouldn't have signed the Cops up to play if they didn't think they could sell 2 shows.

Oh just noticed that $ting, $tewart and Mr. $ummers will have "Hot Seat Packages" as well:

Hot Seat Packages:
Start:Tue, 02/20/07 10:00 AM EST
End:Sat, 07/28/07 03:00 PM EDT
Wonder what they'll cost?
My guess is $450

Just for the hell of it, I logged on at 10am to see what regular tickets would come up.

Still waiting...

Meh...right field boxes, Section 95. The $95 section.

It's not worth it at Fenway unless your on the field.

I'm trying to look at Fenway, too. So far I've crashed and had a 2 minute wait that went up to 8 and crashed again, and currently I'm at "15 minutes or more." While I've wanted to see a show at Fenway, I think I may just hold off and see if a Philadelphia date gets added, or else just wait until the fall.

Tried the Gold Hot Seat Package and Field C3 came up.

$375 for that ticket, plus a "merchandising" item.

Yeah, right...

Man, does $ting bend you over for that "hot seat package"...C3 for $375...that makes the $tones look philanthropic with the way they price tickets.

Gold Hot Seat Package tickets are still available.

How shocking.

Were they locked into fixed setlists 23-30 years ago?

True, but they only announced a single Police show at first.
