North American Tour - 2016
« on: December 17, 2015, 05:58:01 PM »
Kinda confused about the tour announcement.  Do we know anything about the presale tomorrow?  Is it through the venues?  Is there a password? 

Bummed we get less than a day to plan for this.  Also kind of weird the general sale begins Tuesday.  What ever happened to Saturday?  My employer blocks just about every site on the internet and my cell service isn't the greatest so I may have to wait several hours to stake claim on my seats.  Not how I like to do it.   :'(

I recall that some of the VIP seats sold on the DT website for the DT12 tour were less than spectacular seats for some cities.  In fact, I scored better seats when tickets went on public sale and I ended up reselling my VIP package.

(I'm fine with moving this thread to the concerts page, or combining if a similar thread already exists)

If the presale is like in europe then it is a small sunset of the tickets spread out around the theater sold through dreamtheater.net.
The actual sale will be through CrowdSurge where you will need to create an account after you have found your tickets (if you don't have one already).

If you are not able to get to the normal sale intil after a few hours I would suggest presale.

Got tickets for the first announced Stockholm show through presale on a hard pressed work week. Ok tickets but quite a bit back after presale had been going for hours. Then I tried to get better tickets when general sale went up. Due to meetings at work this was also hours later and the tickets I found were worse than through presale.
For the second annonced show I tried as soon as the general sale went up and got 4th row...

any word on the RCMH show? theres nothing listing it on the RCMH site or LiveNation.  I'm guessing at 10 the links will update on DT's end, just don't like how last minute this all is  :\

I'd be down, definitely should do a dtf meet up.  I booked my hotel room already as well.  Not that I can't get home, but life is easier when you don't have to worry about that.

Is it broken or did all of the presale tickets sell out for RCMH in a couple minutes?  I can't find any pair of tickets in any section.

I just got my ticket. I'm not driving in. I'm definitely taking public transportation. I can't be worried about driving and having a few drinks. You could have driven to me and taken public transportation with me and just crashed at my place.

If anyone wants to use my place as a resting ground, feel free to ask.

I kept refreshing and eventually got pretty good seats:

   Orchestra 5, Row XX, Seat 501   $79.50   $8.00   $87.50
   Orchestra 5, Row XX, Seat 502   $79.50   $8.00   $87.50

Im pumped!

Thanks for the offer Prog, I have spend over 50 nights a year in hotels so I have status and staying at a hotel with my friend is the best option for me.  For mostly the same reason, I plan on drinking and don't take the risk of driving when doing so.  Since it's a Saturday though, I can get into the city early for some bar hopping or whatever.  Going to be a good time.

I just hit my Staples easy button!  Got box H (mezzanine) row A almost in the center for the Cincinnati show at Taft Theater. :metal  I was going to go for the floor, but love the seats I got since there will be no one in front of me.

Amazing to me that the two tickets I got were 135.00 with fees.  I paid much more for two tickets for Rush and Fleetwood Mac.

Now I have to call my wife and tell her how easy it was to get the tickets.  I tried to get her Adelle tickets yesterday with no luck even though I was on line at the stroke of 10:00am.

Indeed, it will an amazing time. I'll look into finding a decent place to hang out beforehand. I'm always in the area for work. Unless anyone else has a recommendation of course. We still have plenty of time.

I was definitely caught a little off-guard this morning when I saw that this tour was happening.  But, I couldn't miss them for the 2nd straight tour.  A little selfish on my part.  But, as a result, my daughter will be indoctrinated into the world of Dream Theater at RCMH the night before her 9th birthday.  My wife, daughter and I will be 2nd Mezzanine, 2nd row, on the end.  Can't frickin' wait!  Hope she has fun, too.   ;D

4 tickets for Toronto! Right orchestra row A. I'm very pleased with what I pulled up!

I checked to see what else I could pull up and there are no more seats coming up in that price range. Feeling very lucky. :biggrin:

Ditto on the prices. Only thing about the CT date is that my girlfriend will be in Ireland and we have pets at home. I'd either have to take a half day or leave the animals by themselves for a ridiculously long period of time. A DTF meetup in the city would be fun as hell. On the other hand, I want to buy a CT ticket so the band managers will view CT as a viable venue for future tours (not sure why they've bailed the last few).

Fuckkk. Idk. I just bought tickets to the CT show. I've seen DT at RCMH. I was in the 8th row for the SCORE filming. Great venue. As much as I'd love to do NYC for the day, I have to be conscious of my money. Three weeks prior to that, I'll be in Vegas for a few days. A day in NYC might be stretching my budget for April.

I hear you. Money is an issue and CT allows me to the do this show for a third of what an NYC show would cost. At least a third.
Plus, the Oakdale is an amazing venue! So I'm stoked.

I see that LiveNation has a presale code, which is why I asked in case anyone has gotten them through LiveNation/TicketMaster.

Which do you guys reckon is better, buying them through DT's website or LN/TM?
