Erois - you're coming from Chicago, yes?

Crazy idea, but you might want to look into flying into LA on Saturday (the flight is about $300 cheaper) and driving to Las Vegas. It's about a 4 1/2 hour drive. Hotels in LA are a lot cheaper, so depending on your ability to stay awake you could drive back early Sunday morning instead of getting a hotel in Las Vegas, have a sleep and still have time to explore hollywood before the LA show (assuming tickets ever come up).

Even if you got a hotel in Vegas St night you might still come up ahead then flying into Vegas (and you'd get 2 shows in).

Maybe I'll see you there 4everconchordsfan!


Happy Friday Flightys,

Viva Las Vegas Babies!

I had the same ticket purchase fiasco with ticketmaster as most of you. The availability kept coming up at $51 + fees with no indication of seat placement. I kept trying each time seats went up for sale. Finally (Wednes night) I was able to get a real seat, all of a sudden it said Orchestra 2, GG, I nearly fainted. I grabbed it right away. Then when I went back in for another seat it took 30 minutes or more before another Orchestra seat showed available. Ticketmaster is evil.

Eorious, Im flying in from Chicago also. I must be crazy, I'm marathoning on this trip. What a riot if we were on the same flights. Im flying into Vegas Friday after work, on United. Im gonna be beat, im working a really long day, then a 4 hr flight. Im still trying to work out how to get to LAX or SFO on Sunday. Monday, Berkeley show (no ticket or hotel yet) then fly home San Fran/Chicago Tues on a lousy UA connecting flight. Im flying out of SFO early early morning with connections arriving home late night Tues. then get up early to be at work Wednes morning. Yikees. All worth it for the privilege of Jem & Bret. I am very excited. So hoping for a meet n greet, but even if we dont get one, the experience of being in a room with them is just the happiest & best feeling EVER! Keep me posted on your progress with your air/hotel arrangements.

Have a great weekend everyone.

You're in fine company here 4everconchordsfan! will fly from Barcelona to San Francisco via London after working my early morning shift (early morning for me means late night for most.. I start 0345am). It's worth it :nod: .
But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

Where is eveyone staying in Las Vegas, has anyone found a cheap motel option?

It looks like most hotels/casinos in LV are already full for the 23rd or there are only $1000 a night suites left. I'd rather not drive back to LA right after the show.

Yep, sounds like General Admission, Standing Room Only. Yikes....not sure if I'd go for that. Course if I were there, standing for their show would be better than missing their show! :D :yawinkle:

I just noticed those tickets on there. The lack of a description about where the seats are is what worries me with those.

Why am I sitting here looking at FOTC tickets for Vegas and Berkley when I'm the other side of the country with no money? Sigh. :cry: That Philly show was one of the best nights of my life and while I'm sitting here bogged down in studying for my finals so I can graduate, I just keep wishing I could relive that night.

Keeping checking back, there are a ton of SRO tickets but seats keep coming up in the orchestra. I have an extra single row JJ tickets if you need one (I'm likely getting into Las Vegas right before the show)

My feeling on the Berkeley show is that those people who turn down their tickets to get rereleased will actually go to this one, since it's the finale. So probably gonna be real hard. :(

I've decided to not pursue it, so I'm not really checking much lately. So I hope someone takes over the reins. :D

But I suggest you continuously post on Craigslist (enough so that it doesn't get buried) and you might have some luck with searching on Twitter. And if you can live with a single ticket, try always searching that way on TM. I've seen quite a few singles only being rereleased.

Good luck, guys! I'll be there in spirit. :supz:

I was going to catch a little sun today but something is telling me to stay near a computer...just in case.

With my luck, more LA tickets will be rereleased on Thursday and/or Friday (when I'll be working and without computer access).

The tickets just got a little better for the show in San Diego. This morning all that was showing up was Section 10. I just checked again now and they have one available for LFLR, Row Q.
