I had a little bit of a problem when I called Paramount for tickets today. they said the "presale" was through Ticket Master, ala the internet. I then went to Ticket Master's website and found that they required a password to be able to order tickets!

I'm not to happy with this arrangement, and I'll let the folks at the box office know, when I order tickets tomorrow...

It's unfortunate how much nonsense there is involved in simply getting tickets! It's the same thing only different... every year. So much misinformation in the "information age"!!!

I became a season subscriber at the Paramount this year JUST to make sure I got good tickets for Gordon's concert. It required us to buy for three concerts. There was one other concert we were interested in, but really couldn't find a third. Just to fulfill the requirement, we got $10 tickets to some kid show that we'll never use!

A lot to go thru just to make sure we were not as far back in the theatre as we were last year!

By the way, just got our season tickets. We are on the left side, on the aisle, fifth row back. I'm happy!

With a lot of time on hold, and having to listen to a telephone greeting that was meant for yesterday when the presale was on at Ticketmaster... complete with the bloody password!!! (There are some serious flaws in their "system"!!!) I did get my tickets... 3rd row far. far left side.

Sorry folks, just had to vent a bit!

Now I'll start getting pumped up!

so maybe we'll see you at the show, Wyn.

Well, Kansas City didn't fill our appetite after a 6 year drought. So, my family and I are going to drive 5.5 hours to Aurora to see GL again. On July 9 I called the Paramount Box Office, got the password on their recording and then went to ticketmaster.com website and was able to secure the tickets. We are also on the far left side, 5th row, four seats together. My son Tim and I wanted the left side to put us in the best position to see Gordon and Terry's guitar work.

Peter, we will be close enough to throw a crumpled up napkin at you! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thanks Pete. You're talking to a very experienced, and very dignified Lighthead. I was using the napkin metaphor to describe my proximity, not my expected actions.
At the Paramount, two rows behind you, we'll be the family of four (with a son 14, and a daughter 12). We may have those napkins crumpled up, but would never throw them unless provoked.
