I'm also considering a trip to this show. Well, both Chicago shows. If anyone hears of good single seats (first 15 rows, or so) please let me know.

Hey Chicago Flighty's,

I am so excited, anxious & sleepless, can't wait for Tuesday.

I'd love to meet you guys but don't know where I am going to be seated. A friend of mine got the tickets as a gift & she won't tell me where we're seated. I've tried begging, but to no avail. Now that I know where you will be seated I will looking for you.

I'm dreaming of a meet and greet, will you guys be sticking around for that? I think I will be on my own for that, im afraid that my g/f who is attending with me isnt quite as die hard as I am. I am a virgin Conchords concert go-er, you know the first time is always most memorable, haha. There is no doubt that it will be one of the most amazing nights of my life.

So glad to have discovered this fansite, Sherry does an awesome job, and it is most appreciated. I feel lucky to have met such a great group of people.

Look forward to meet you all.

Hi there! Welcome to the board! :wave: I am ridiculously excited about the show too....my first Conchords show as well! I'm probably not sticking around for a meet and greet, as I will be with either my boyfriend or my mom, neither of whom are as crazy about the Conchords as I am. :D What time are you going to get there? Maybe we could all meet up to say hello before the show?

Bad news, kids....not going to the show after all. :tears: My bf couldn't get the night off and my mom bailed out on me at the last minute, so I ended up giving both my tickets to my friend and her brother, who are mega-geek fans like me. They are SUPER excited to go though, so it's all good. I'll get all the details from them and let y'all know what happened. :)

Oh no, Val! :( You didn't want to go by yourself?

Aww Val! I second what mockingbird said - you should go by yourself! You would've had a blast anyway! :cry:

I thought about it, but I really don't think I would have had much fun without someone else there to laugh with, you know? My friends are going to have an awesome time so even though I'm disappointed, I'm excited FOR them. :)

That was very unselfish of you, Val. :halo: I would have given the extra ticket to my friend and gone together.....

Do they come here? Tell them to come join if they don't- we need all the details we can get! :D

Awww. Val. I was looking so forward to meeting you. Are you
sure you won't change your mind. Bet you could find a ticket.
We may not sit next to one another but I'll hang out with you.

In fact, I am going to the Milwaukee show by myself. I found a
single ticket, awful seats, but who cares im in the room with
Bret & Jemaine for 2 heavenly hours. What about Milwaukee, we could
meet up there & hang out. There was a single ticket at the
thread for buy/sell tickets by someone named blammey. Take
a look, we'd be seated together. He/She had 2 tickets, I bought a
single and they were trying to get rid of the last ticket. Go take a
look, its for the 10pm show & then we can hang out for meet &
greet. Do you live north side, south side or burbs? I'm not far from
Ohare.

Let me know, k, think about Milwaukee I'd love to have someone to
hang out with.

Karen

Aww, Karen, you're so sweet! I'll think about Milwaukee for sure, but my work schedule may not allow it. I'll see. I am always looking to make new friends in the area though - I live in the suburbs but we should get together sometime anyway!

I hope you have a fabulous time tonight - if you meet the boys give 'em a big hug from me! :D

Just read a twitter from John Wesley Harding. He's heading to Chicago to play with Eugene tonight at the Conchords show. That should be fun.

Val I don't get it, why didn't you just ask your friend to go with you?
