    Default Detroit, MI - Palace of Auburn Hills (Feb. 20) ROLLCALL

    As this is the second stop on tour, I figured the sooner the better for the rollcall thread.

    Less than five weeks, guys! This will be my first Van Halen concert, and I couldn't be more excited!
    Van Halen will rock your face off!

    I'm there! Probably getting a VIP package for this one, since it's my hometown area. :-)

    My first post as a new user. I'll be at the Palace. Saw them in 04 there. Was on the site back in the mid 2000's around the '04 tour and posted a bunch, but now I am back. And so is VH!

    I'd love to be there, but unfortunately when VH finally decides to tour with new material after so many years, they decide to come to town the day AFTER I'm leaving for vacation!!!! I sure hope they have another leg of the tour through Detroit later this year. Hopefully at Joe Louis, where I first saw them back in 86.

    I would probably look for them to come to DTE (Pine Knob).

    I hope they come thru again and play at JLA or Pine Knob. I'll see you guys then, too!

    The Van Kado Family will be there....my older brother and I have been going to VH shows since the early 80s (early 80s for him; I went to the last tour in 1985 with DLR when I was 5)!

    The cool thing is his son, my nephew, only 11 will be joining us...remind you of a certain other family we all love?

    I plan to get us all VIP Packages.
    It's 5150 time!

    Nice - got 4 in section 202 through the AMEX presale - kinda side stage - gonna look on Saturday as well and try to upgrade. I screwed up and put in for 8 tickets on my first try and was taken aback by the $1300 price tag - went back to look for 4 and already at upper level in a matter of seconds. I assume the general public sale on the 14th has to have some decent tickets available as well - time will tell. Enjoy the show.

    I got my tickets, but not until after I suffered through a freaking nightmare.

    So I ended up with Section 117. Not nearly what I wanted. But here's what happened...


    So I'm doing my normal thing. I've got multiple browser windows open. I normally have 3 different browsers running, but today I opened up 6. That was probably my problem. So I'm searching for tickets in all 6 browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Netscape, Avant) and I'm refreshing. I'd get 1 group of seats I'd like in one window and then keep refreshing until I found something better in the other 5. I finally get the seats I want so I go to the checkout. It verifies my credit card, my billing/mailing address, asks how I want the tickets delivered. You know the whole thing. I verify it all and press the "Submit" button...and then.....

    "Forbidden / You don't have permission to access / on this server"

    WTF?!?!?! That's right. I got banned from Ticketmaster! I googled the error and apparently, I had done too many searches. So, Ticketmaster banned me from their site. Supposedly, the ban goes away after 72 hours. It's a security measure to help keep away scalpers & ticket brokers. Regardless, I'm completely screwed. I mean royally fucked. I'm screaming at the monitor. I'm about to go ballistic. I try calling Ticketmaster. I used the automated service to buy tickets. The automated services is slower than you can imagine and is painful to use. Here's a breakdown of our exchange:

    A computer voice starts by saying: "Would you like to buy tickets for Boyz ii Men at Motor City Casino?"
    (NOTE - wtf?! Boys ii Men? Really? After it asks if I want English or Spanish, the next question is would I like to see Boys ii Men?!)
    Me: "What? NO!!!!!!"
    The Voice: "I think I heard 'no', is that correct?"
    Me: YES!
    The Voice: Would you like to search by venue or event name?
    Me: Event name!
    The Voice: What is the name of your event?
    Me: VAN HALEN!
    The Voice: "I think I heard 'Van Halen', is that correct?"
    Me: Yes.
    The Voice: (very slowly) Van Halen. At the Palace of Auburn Hills. Monday. Feburary 20th. 2012. Ticket prices for this event are $149.50. Would you like tickets for this price level?
    Me: NO!
    The Voice: Ticket prices are also available for $79.50. Would you like tickets for this price level?
    Me: Yes!
    The Voice: I think I heard "yes", is that correct?
    Me: YES!!!!!!!!!
    The Voice: There are tickets in this price range available on the concourse level and the loge level. Which level would you like?
    Me: Concourse.
    The Voice: I think you said 'concourse', is that correct?
    Me: Yes!!!!
    The Voice: (long pause) I'm sorry. There are no tickets available that meet your request. Would you like to search another section?
    Me: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Voice: (begins repeating the prices for the event....)
    Me: FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ***I listen through all the pricing garbage again and tell it to search the Loge.***
    The Voice: There a 4 tickets available in Section 214, Row 10, seats 5 through 8. Would you like these seats?
    Me: No.
    The Voice: 3 searches are the maximum number allowed via the automated service. If you do not elect to purchase the next set of tickets, the call will be disconnected.
    Me: Fuck this! *slams down phone*


    So I hang up and call back. This time I just keep repeating "Customer Service" over and over. A recording tells me my approximate wait time is 10 minutes. I wait about 10 minutes. Finally a woman answers the phone. I explain my predicament and she tells me she can see all available seats in the area and asks me to pick a section. I tell her I want the best $79.50 seats available. She comes back with Section 117. I begrudgingly accept.

    All told, it took me over an hour and a half to buy tickets. It was a nightmare! A NIGHTMARE! And in the end, I didn't even get that good of seats because I was banned from Ticketmaster's website. I am so freaking ticked off. Grrrrrrr.

    UGH, what a pain! Sorry you had such a miserable time. TM sucks. That's why we call them TicketBastard!

    My seats are in Section 122, row R. I'm taking my son, who is 8 1/2. He's learning guitar, and he needs to see EVH live while he can!
