    I will be going, they play Detroit on my birthday, so why not?
    Cool, they are playing Dallas the day after my birthday!  From the little I've read, Roger is saying don't worry, they will still be playing Who-style.  They will feature some Tommy and Quad, along with other songs and the new stuff.
    I am looking forward to it.  Are you going to the Dallas show?
    For sure, and maybe 1 or 2 others, I don't know yet.
    LOL.  Just don't say it will be the last.  Every time I think the who is done, they tour again.

    I didn't receive any pre-sale codes.

    :lol:  At Christmas I was telling everyone I felt sure I'd been to my last Who show and they'd never tour again.

    My show goes on sale next week.  Still checking with friends before deciding if I'll go to another.

    I managed to score 5th row centre floor, centre aisle seats for Toronto. Very happy about it. The VIP packages were way too expensive for me this time around. $1380 for the first 3 rows... yikes. Last time I saw them I paid $500 for 2nd row VIP package with soundcheck and food and unlimited drinks before the show. It was hands down one of the best concert experiences ever!

    Yeah, I agree about the VIP seats.  I don't know how many takers they'll have but I think there will be good seats available without the VIP packages.

    Anyone have a fan club code? I would like to get Alpine tickets. The codes are good for multi use I read. Thanks for the consideration.

    I'm hoping for some show reviews here, ya'll!  And hoping for a DVD release in the future so I can see some of this at home.

    I got decent seats on the floor on Pete's side, which is really all I wanted.  Those VIP packages are too high!

    The Kids Are Alright documentary/cd has in my opinion the best version of Baba O'Riley that I've ever heard. Keith Moon is bashing on a Gong for part of it, and John Entwistle's bass is just sooo stellar.  And Pete's windmill is in full swing.  Rogers is swinging the mic like nobody else can.
    Another great topic Brian, thanks for starting another great topic.
    Here's that's great to version of Bubba

    Expensive TIX to see The Who @ Alpine Valley.
    $300-$400 really close.  The prices varie
    A LOT!! based on how centerd you are more than what row.  A ticket stage left row G is $164 + fees bullshit so add $25 $190 a pop!!.  Just Two seats closer to the middle SAME SECTION same Row G $499.50 + fees. $525 ish... yikes!
    How does an average couple or average joe go to concerts anymore.  That is a super expensive date night for a couple.  I thought Pearl Jam's prices last year were way high @ $122 a pop.  Geeze.
    Lawn seats fot The Who are $63+ fees.  So we'll probably do that. $88x2=$176 for 2.  Its nuts and thats befour $40 tshirt & $15 beers.

    I'll have to settle for a DVD if they put one out.

    i dont need to see any wrinkles up close. i'm in the doors, in the cheap seats, and super happy about it !
    if the show doesn't sell out it will be pick a seat night  ;)  ha!

    Yeah everything on the field at Fenway is either $175.00 plus fees (ending up at $215) or higher (extra 20 bucks for aisle seats, damn you Live Nation you thieving bastards) and real good seats are $300 plus fees but not available at that price cause all those seats seem to be the VIP packages at either $505.00, $815.00 or $1,295.00 a ticket. Screw that. I've seen them a number of times, in much better concert venues.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    That's really the way to go.  My prince was surprised a few years ago when we flew to Anaheim for the Quad tour (no Texas shows!) without tickets.  We bought excellent tickets the morning of the show.  A minor disappointment that we were on Pino's side instead of Pete's but still great.

    But these prices are mind-boggling.  Course I've said that for the last 3 tours.

    I got two tickets for Edmonton (yuck) for $66 each, Canadian. They are nosebleeds but I’m happy to be in the building and not have my wife freaking out about more concert tickets.
