    Not cheap by any means.  200 for toronto for good seats.

    Saw an economic breakdown for typical tour of this type and the numbers are crazy. Not exactly dealing with razor thin margins.

    75 minutes in and Boston is selling like hot cakes! Lol



    The DC map is almost exactly the same. Seems they overestimated demand and overpriced the seats.  
    ...got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul...

    I'm not sure how I wasn't aware that tix were going on sale today but here I am.

    I scored great seats in Noblesville.  Looking to do a Nashville roadtrip....those two shows would be awesome.  It looks like they tend to switch things up each night and, although they will do SYMM both nightsi it might be a great road trip.

    If it works financially, good for them? As a fan, it's terrible. Pay top dollar to see them play in a giant, half empty venue? It sucks. I've been to a couple of shows like that. Entire back sections empty.

    Well snap, I'll be out of town when they play locally. Considering the venue, price of tix, and fact they're playing SYMM front to back, I'm not all that bummed. Might still try to catch one of the Nashville shows.

    Saw Steve Gorman at a Q&A/book signing Friday night in Boston - he's a real down to earth guy and really shed some light on the past and what the future brings - and won't bring.  

    Just having the Robinsons and some hired help to fill in the blanks is pushing it as a Black Crowes reunion, just my opinion. I'm sure they'll sound good, as long as the brothers can get along and don't kill each other before next summer!

    What a bunch of bullshit...  Sold out in 1 minute...
    What sold out?
    For whatever reason it said sold out but when I went to the home page tix were magically there...

    Stupes.

    Anywho I bought cheap ass nose bleed seats, passed on the lower more expensive  orchestra seating.
    Almost half hour in and I can still pull front center section standard tix for both MA and NH. Bunch of VIP packages too obviously. Going great!
    Yeah looks like they way overestimated demand. Should be playing smaller places like the Pavilion (whatever bank it is named after this year, old Harborlights) in Boston rather than Great Woods.
    I'd actually consider going to Harborlights. Nothing can get me to Great Woods, though. Does the MTA's new super duper commuter rail plan have a Great Woods station built into it? Nothing says "what a great night!" like idling for two hours to exit a parking lot.
    I SAW PEARL JAM

    I dont think average listener even knows about this yet.  Local radio stations have not mentioned anything at all about them touring or doing shows.

    Based on the ticket sales map, you'd be out of Great Woods lot in 5 minutes for this show, Looks like there'll be about 500-600 folks in attendance. ;) 

    This weekend we rock Portland

    Thinking I’ll wait on buying a ticket for a while. I’m sure as the dates get closer there will be discounted tickets available on Groupon for $20.  I’m still flabbergasted that they booked an arena here in the Twin Cities.

    I’m a fan and will def go.  But the “official platinum” tickets won’t sell and prices will drop.  Be patient. The official platinum thing is just such bullshit.  
    I just upgraded my black keys tickets For tomorrow in hoiston to 4th row bc the “platinum” seat that was initially 460.00.   I traded my 99.00 ticket for an even trade.  Same thing will happen for these shows

    Trying to get some lawn tickets for ST. Louis but then it says “another fan already got these”? Why would it give me an option to select them if not available?

    For $1115.00 I could have had 2 front row meet and greet tickets in Omaha next August.
    Nope
    Used to see these guys in clubs  for $10
    Seems like a overly ambitious money grab

    Not really- was surprised it wasn’t madness. I think BB holds around 500. Got there at 12:15, we were 150ish in the line. I’m so excited to finally see them.

    Anything is possible, but why would they cancel a short run of shows in April for this?

    Yeah, I only saw in our newspaper the entertainment reporter posted the tickets were going on sale today at 10, then I tuned into the Stern replay/West Coast feed and heard about it. It seems like a very odd way to promote a tour, with little notice, yet over half a year in advance of the shows.

    actually i just learned they are in fact unrelated. i thought initially maybe it was so they could prepare more for a full scale tour, with rehearsals and such, but it was apparently that BM "wasn't fully consulted" by live nation for the tour that they cancelled. kinda bizarre.
