    Spent way to much money to only hear 3 songs!! What a bummer!

    Just bought tickets today. They were NOT cheap! Hopefully you can play at least a few songs. Can’t wait!

    @RebeccaPierce I don’t know how many people have already made an inquiry, but I’m always up for 2 tickets. How much?

  4. RebeccaPierce says:

    I have two extra tickets. I don’t know what to do…I’m in a Pickle! I got them from the devil (I will admit that) and then my friend managed to get me a ticket in a better section. I paid THROUGH the nose for a nosebleed ticket! I have to sell them for the price I paid. (which I don’t want to admit in public) ha! I don’t want to put them on stubhub (the devil) because another ‘scalper’ will buy them and turn around and sell them for three times the price. So I’ll leave it up to one of you who might be interested. you can find me on FB and send me a message. to find me there…

    Hello guys – you are lucky to be so loved. And try as I might I never succeed in getting tickets (at a price I could possibly afford). What about acknowledging that with offering a pair of tickets up via a lottery – you could use it to collect donations for a cause you’d like to support? I would be happy to buy lottery tickets for $10 knowing that either I support a good cause or … win tickets to your concert?
    Just a thought – from someone who wants to get a look in …

    Tried all morning to get tickets to see you in NYC but the only that were available cost $500 each, so, needless to say I won’t be seeing you in March. I think you’re worth the money but I need to pay the bills:-(

    Oh awesome! When are you guys gonna drop by Arizona? Right now we have what you guys would call “nice” weather… to us it’s freezing when it’s 54 degrees in the early morning! If you guys come in the summer when basically everyone is melting from the heat I know a great town that’s just about two hours from Phoenix. I’m sure you guys would love the small town-ness after going through all those big cities!

    You guys are really going to show up Coldplay… They should have found a group that could even attempt to be half as good as you.
