Presale is on NOW. The only way to do it, is to become an annual member (only $10) and you must call either of these 2 numbers: (800) 657-3980 or (507) 328-2200. When you get through, you can buy a membership AND purchase Lightfoot tickets. The tickets are only $21.25 apiece!

GOOD LUCK! I'm in Row 9, Main Floor.

I just called Mary in Rochester and bought the annual membership and two tickets to GL on Sept. 21. Got in the middle in Row 8, front and center.

The price of Rochester is very reasonable. $58 total for 2 tickets plus the $10/membership fee. Mary explained to me that the City of Rochester helps keep ticket prices low to promote attendance on the part of all. At that price, I would suspect a sell-out soon.

Because of the lower price, I wonder if Rochester will be more of a casino-set rather than the two-set format. Oh well, still worth it.

Never mind..
I called a 3rd time and she picked up..
Nice warm friendly woman..
She offered me front section row 10..
I opted for front row extreme (Mike Heffernan) side..
banking on there being no speaker stack obstructing Mike and Rick etc..
The low ticket price made the 10 buck membership fee a no brainer..

See you in Rochester lads and lasses!

Yes Al and young Bru Silverheels no doubt went into palpitation mode since the original Rochester is not so very far from her in merry old England

Rochester Castle in Kent county England

Nothing feels better than holding those tickets in your own hands. Mine came in the mail yesterday. Yay!

Yes, Sir John, I am still taking the meds! (And incidentally, I walked along that path at Rochester Castle just a few weeks ago on a working photography assignment. Rochester is a lovely town.)

Sir John, Do you know what sort of stone was used in building RC? The pale pink shade on the front of the castle peaked my curiosity. I cannot imagine why I think you might know.

the pale pink is probably sun reflection on the stone. Of course, Sir John may know differently ...

I thought it might be pink limestone but all I can find is it is built of stone..no details of what kind tho.
more pics at:

in Toronto we have The Legislature Bldgs. built of pink sandstone mined in Canada.
