  • Super easy, I love the lottery system for that.  The hard part is the wait.
  • Easy.  Trying for reserved or GA on 8/18 at Wrigley.  Fingers crossed.  Is there any way that a 10C member gets totally shut out?
  • I have a question, first time in the lottery system. If I want to go to the Seattle show and put that as #1 and then put Boston as the #2 choice, can I draw both? What if I only want Boston if I cant get Seattle? Any clarification would be great...

    The info is all there. Don't enter for 2 shows unless you're willing to pay for 2 shows

    It's possible. If you don't want to take chances...putting Wrigley 1 reserved as your #1 choice is probably close to a 100% chance of getting in the building. If you do GA for 1st choice and Reserved as 2nd choice...you're starting to take on some risk. We don't really know how much risk..

    Thanks for the advice.  That's exactly what I did - reserve #1 and GA #2 choice.  Hoping to be there!

    I've done two prior lotteries. In both I made multiple selections, ask about lots of strategy, and in both I only won tickets on my first pick.
    Memphis 2014, and Greenville 2016. In 14 St. Louis GA was 3rd and reserved 4th. Maybe Reserved 3rd would have done it, don't know... 
    In 16 I went for 3 GAs before going for seating... Maybe I was greedy.

    In both years I saw people post about getting GA on multiple shows, maybe they played better odds, maybe they just had better luck.

    This year they say there are more tickets, the prices are also higher, but there are still no guarantees. The smart money, IMO is go with reserved if you want to make sure you get in, but that is all hearsay, I've never gotten a reserved seat.
  • ive tried multiple times on multiple devices and after i make my selection and enter cc info, i hit submit and nothing happens!!!!! no confirmation page, no nothing.... HELP!!!!!
  • I changed my ticket selection last night, and apparently it didn't go through. I saw the confirmation page, but now my ticket selections are gone... No good :bawling:

    This is an upsetting first post @izmesteffy ; Good luck on the TM sale!
  • You're telling me, @tempo_n_groove
  • Apparently it can happen. First time I ever got totally shut out. Anyone have a ticket for Boston?

    the process was great.  Easy for me to say, I did get tix.  I have to say the 'choices' thing was confusing.  my thought process was "well, I want to see the Friday show in Seattle.  However, if that is gone, I guess I'll take the Wednesday show."  I am flying in from Denver, so the weekend makes it easier.  Thought process was 'first choice, Friday night, Second choice, Wednesday'.  thank goodness I reread the ok, instructions ten times.  Odds are, I would have 'won' both lotteries and had to pay for both.  Would like to have had the choice to say "Ok, I'll do Wednesday ONLY if no Friday... and I definitely don't need/want 2 sets of tickets.  I would bet HUNDREDS of folks made that error and accidentally scored tix to Weds and Fri.

    I have NEVER had bad luck with Ten Club. in there for 21 years, and never missed tickets or a show.  Best seats I got were about 15 years ago in New Mexico.  Got 2 seats through fan club, will call only.  LIke these shows, they wouldn't even tell me where the seats were.  That was ok, happy to go see my band (did a 6 hour road trip from Denver, as Albuquerque was closest they would come).  Even when we get there, they don't tell us where seats are... we just get an escort.  We kept getting closer and closer.  then, HOLY SHIT, we are 2nd row center!!!!   you know the DVD 'Touring Band'?  The song at the end, 'Free world' where Eddie puts the kid in his shoulders, that was the show we were at.

    Viva la Ten Club!  Here is to another 20 years together

    terrible!  Spent 35-40 mins trying to get thru only to find there were only single tickets available.  Glad some people got thru ok, but its incredibly frustrating for those of us that didn't.  The band don't play here that often any more.  The TEN club need to reward all long time fans with a system that will ensure we all get tickets.  In 2018 how hard could that be.  Let the Ten club distribute the tickets at the will call on the day of the gig.  Have a great time if you're going

    I have to ask how? Boston 2 was as close to a sure thing as we've ever seen in a ticket lottery.
