    Default The Official MINNEAPOLIS Thread - 10/24

    As it would appear there has yet to be an official Minneapolis tour thread, I am starting it now.

    The show is Wednesday, October 24 at the Target Center.

    As of today, 8/22, tickets have yet to go on sale, and a date has not been announced. It's been said the VH official website hasn't been up-to-the-minute with ticket sale info, and with all the brokers and outlets handling sales for this tour there's room for confusion. Let's keep one another updated!

    Post all questions, ticket info, venue info, and ultimately show reviews here!

    Default KQRS mention

    Andrew-

    I was listening to KQ this morning and after playing some VH, Tom Bernard said that he heard recent some rehearsal tapes and they sounded great. Have you heard anything about rehearsal audio floating around? Also, are you planning on going to the show? I am planning on it…

    I am watching very closely for ticket sales. I need to buy 4 and I want them up close and personal. I was in 1st row for '04 Omaha, 2nd row for '04 Ames, and 5th row for Rapid City '04. I cant stand the thought of getting 6th or deaper row seats!

    PLEASE ANNOUNCE HERE IF SOMEONE HEARS SOMETHING! Thanks!

    That's the idea. Let's keep one another in the loop.

    I'm going.

    The only "rehearsal tape" type stuff I've heard is the clips on the EVH Gear website: www.evhgear.com. There was a supposed "rehearsal tape" thing posted on YouTube, which was actually the clips from the EVH site and some boots of soundchecks on the '04 tour--no vocals on any of it.

    By the way, you weren't a DJ on Minneapolis radio at any time, were you?

    Nope. I'm just a database guy... The KQ guys were saying they heard rehearsal tapes and they sounded great. I did the obligatory YouTube search and of course found nothing. Hopefully they will be leaked soon.

    No updates yet on Minneapolis ticket sales. The VH Newsletter is actually doing a good job of sending out info on a regular basis.

    I've been told by a few sources to avoid ticket brokers unless it's absolutely necessary to use them. Taking your chances with Ticketmaster is still the best way to get "regular" tickets.

    I wish they'd booked the Xcel. Target Center sucks for concerts.

    Just a quick bump for the MN thread. I've got 4 other VH fans I need to report to when I hear when the tickets are going up for sale. So PLEASE spill the beans as soon as the trumpet sounds!

    Thanks!

    I am getting nervous, D.C. is scheduled more than a week after the Twin Cities, and their tickets have already gone on sale. Are you hearing anything strange?

    I'm gettin' worried!

    The shows for most of the venues that had tickets on sale are already sold out, and I'm worried the Target Center's one will sell out before Ticketmaster even puts them on sale. Anybody know of any brokers that are selling for less than $100? I'd prefer to avoid them, but I wonder if so many people will scoop up tickets that way that I'll have no choice but do it through TicketsNow or Go Tickets. Can't miss this once-in-a-lifetime gig!

    I'm waiting to take my chances with Ticketmaster. Personally, I'm not paying more than face value for these tickets; for me the show isn't worth it. I don't think there'll be any problem getting tickets the morning they go on sale. I suspect The Police show was bigger for most Minnesotans, and I was able to jump on and buy tickets 25 minutes into them going on sale.

    How's it going everyone? I've never posted here but was just checking to see if anyone had heard when the tickets for the Minneapolis show go on sale and I saw this thread.

    After looking here I went to the site for the Target Center box office at http://www.targetcenter.com/event.php?id=402. They're saying the tickets will go on sale to the general public through Ticketmaster on Sept. 8 at 11 a.m., so I just wanted to let everyone know in case you hadn't heard.

    Thanks for posting. That's the first news I've heard of a ticket sale date.

    $149.50, $79.50, $49.50? Ouch. I think $49.50 is seating in the parking ramp.

    Anyone from Minneapolis meeting up before the concert anywhere?
