    Edmonton gets a second show, and it's a Saturday. I'd be a little pissed if I'd just paid 300+ for a Thursday show :lol:
    Might try again in tomorrow's presale to see if there are any seats too tempting to pass on....but thinking I'm on board with dignin in hoping this lowers demand and there are some cheapies to be had closer to show time. If not, I'm out.

    This is my perspective with Vancouver.

    I'll try again in the presale'. Then I'll try in the regular sale. If it doesn't happen... well... I guess it wasn't meant to be.

    I love the band though.

    Wow, $166/seat is pretty steep but I remember passing on the Fully Completely shows last year because of ticket prices in the $140 range so it's not the first time their tix have been this expensive. I plan on going and I'll buy my wife a ticket if she wants to go as well. $330 is small compared to everything Gord and The Hip have given me throughout the years. It could be called cashing in on the situation or it could be called realizing the full value the market is willing to pay (I know, it's the same thing) either way I don't care, I'm going.

    And if anyone passes in hopes there will be another tour, prepare to be disappointed. This will be a tour you don't want to miss.

    I agree. even if they aren't locking the door on this by saying it's a farewell tour, I'm guessing it is.

    ticketmaster is so dirty,

    This time, the link for the tickets turned out to be 'dead' when the clock hit zero... so you had to back out, click on the show again... then prove you arent a "robot" by clicking on a button and all sorts of silly pictures.

    I think the feds need to seriously review this bullshit and legislate it. TM should NOT be allowed to shuffle however many seats they wish to secondary sites that cost 10x's more. All tickets should now be credit card entry ONLY. no transfers under any circumstances. if you need to get rid of your ticket, you pay a small admin fee to put the ticket back into the pool, and if it's sold out, people go on a waiting list, those people get notified, and they pay face value. when that happens, that money minus the admin fee goes to the seller.

    i'm in the doors to what could be the last hip show ever.
    kingston. 6th row floor. section 1. thank you presale. thank-you TTH

    WOW. YOU SCORED BIG TIME. GOOD FOR YOU!!!
    thanks. i scored another single for kingston in the amex presale today so my peeps are all taken care of.
    my guess is 2 sets for this tour with no opening band. and for sure they are gonna dust off some nuggets. sooo many songs im hoping for and hope they mix up the setlists a bit. but having said all that it's ALL GOOD. tons of people coming out of the deep woods for these shows...

    Its really bad and ticketmaster is certainly in on it. Consumers are getting fucked.

    I used to be a ticket-getting ninja. Now since they implemented their "anti-robot measures", I cannot get jack shit.
    It often seems like there are convenient glitches at bad times to throw normal people off track, while re-sellers seem to be able to procure tickets by the thousands. It is pretty obvious that the measures ticketmaster has pretended to put in to 'help us' only hinders. And it is intentional

    There have been countless articles on how the "I am not a robot" only fool humans, not robots. For shame. The only way out is to shut down the entire reseller industry, by making marked-up tickets illegal.

    Scored 2nd row seats for the second Calgary show! Very stoked! A bit further than I wanted to drive, but what the hell.

    I wasn't willing to spend what any good seats cost obviously, so i found a $56 one for night 2 ($75 after fees though). I actually had a harder time landing a cheap ticket than i did the best seats. I guess everyone else is poor too, lol. Good news is that I scored row 1 on the balcony dead centre facing the stage. So i guess i got the best shittiest ticket a person can get, lol.

    Given my work schedule, I couldn't risk the public on-sale (especially with the 2 Vancouver shows going on-sale at the same time.) So yesterday, after 7.5 hours of WHARGARBL, I finally got a ticket for the Sunday show from my home computer. (I was ill & unable to work, so I had the chance to start right at 10am.)

    Today, I logged into the Live Nation phone app on my lunch break as soon as I could, and it immediately snagged me a pretty bitchin' side-stage ticket. My lunch is at 11am, so I got lucky only an hour and a few minutes into the presale, compared to 7.5 yesterday. Very weird. However, I'm so relieved that I don't have to scramble on Friday to try & get tickets from the LN app to both shows at the same time, an hour after the sale starts, all whilst sitting in a stuffy, hot car on my lunch break.

    Very fortunate to be able to attend ... The Hip are just a fucking privilege.

    P.S. Day for Night & World Container FTW. :rock_on:

    To anyone who's claiming they're cashing in on Gord's illness with these ticket prices: they're exactly the same price as the Fully Completely tour last year. Like, to the penny. And to anyone who's claiming it's a farewell tour or that Kingston's the band's final show: it's all speculation. No one knows. The band announced this as a tour in support of Man Machine Poem. Hell, I'm guessing the band doesn't even know what's next.

    I defied the bots and got tickets to Calgary 1, Toronto 2, Toronto 3, and (because there really is a Gord) Kingston. For that one I'll be tenth row, alone, and (whether it's the last show or not) blubbering the entire time.

    I agree. even if they aren't locking the door on this by saying it's a farewell tour, I'm guessing it is.

    Having Kingston as the final show, and then not adding another when it was perfectly obvious they could've added about five, seems telling. I think they're planning on making it "the final show," then playing it by ear from that point forward. Like others have said, Gord could live for years beyond this. It's entirely possible they play again.

    ...but just in case they don't, end with a goddamn bang.

    CBC is in talks with the band about broadcasting their "final show" in Kingston.

    But they aren't the same man. I went to a show on that tour, I had the best seat in the house (row 4 floor, dead centre on the aisle), and it was WAY less after fees through the presale on ticketmaster. I am not sure where you're getting your info, or why your tickets were so much more than mine for that tour, but what you're saying is not accurate.

    I agree about the farewell thing though. It's very presumtuous to call it that if the band didn't.
