    Where's all the Van Halen fans?

    I was bored and started checking out what tickets were available for each of the shows. You can find tickets on ticket master for just about every one. I figured they'd be selling out a lot more shows than this. What the hell is going on? My wife and I are making the trip to Kansas City and the "cheap seats" did sell out in a matter of minutes but there are still plenty of tickets available. Surely they'll sell out more than the '04 tour. But at this point it looks about the same.

    Ticketmaster does not release all the tickets at once. I picked up tickets yesterday for the TO first show. Very good seats in fact!. Scalpers are asking way to much to begin with. Ebay tickets are selling for par. 4 star still available, even though last week they said sold out.

    I did notice with the Detroit shows that they're still selling tics but they're greyed out and actually behind the stage. Another thing, I noticed that the tics are definitely more high priced than '04 probably was.

    I hope that's not the case for KC and that they release tickets for $50. I got stuck with buying the $150 tics 'coz the cheap ones sold out first.

    A lot the "sold out" shows had restricted view seating added in the past couple of weeks at TicketBastard. ILAA added 4 and 5 star tickets to the first bunch of shows last week sometime (maybe late the week before).

    These additions weren't really advertised so, as many Army members mentioned early on, it may well pay to wait until the last minute to see what else TicketBastard releases.

    I should have been more selective and patient myself as my Montreal tickets aren't really where I'd like to be. My thinking on this has been get the tickets ASAP so at least I know I've got 'em. I'll be more patient if the tour continues in 2008 and comes my way again.

    11 days and counting...

    It's time to Roth And Roll, people!!

    I'm a big Van Halen and Roth fan but I'm not going. The shows are going to be a medicure shadow of what was and the tickets are too expensive. I really don't care.

    Don't worry. Once the rust is all off you will get to see them in top form.

    Also you can do what I am doing and fly to where the shows are.

    Speaking of sell outs, does anyone attending any of the shows feel like a sell out? Like how people might have felt in 2004? I felt fine after seeing 2 fuckers call themselves FOGHAT without Lonesome Dave!!

    Umm, all one has to do is try and purchase a ticket and they don't have any.


    You can't even get a single ticket at the NJ or NYC dates.


    Maybe they still have the Citi "preferred seating" tickets still, I don't know, but you cannot get a ticket through general puchase at ticketmaster for those dates, and that happened on the first day of sale.


    Ok, I just tried again, there was nothing available.

    Try it.
