We all hear the clock ticking and I feel the need to second what LC&LC, Caren and Bea said and felt:

Thanks to Marie & Jarkko for all their time, energy, patience and nerves they put into the organisation <3

I'm looking forward to meeting you again - let's have a great time in honor of Our Man!
I am all with you on this :D No praise can exaggerate the tremendous efforts that Jarkko and Marie went through to make this happen for us!

As others have said, the prices for this show are amazingly high, but in the frenzy of the presale one might forget to consider the relative quality of the seat being offered to you. From the seat map on the evenko presale page, it is evident that the best seats are all being sold at top price (and many of these are going to be tied into a VIP package, though not necessarily all of them). However, from my point of view at least, a large proportion of the seats being sold at the top price level are not all that great, especially on the floor. Although the very best seats are on the floor, this would only include the centre section of the first five or six rows, give or take. Nonetheless, it would appear that all of the seats in the first 30 or so rows are being sold at Price Level 1. The floor of the arena is not raked, so you do not have to be all that far from the stage before your view becomes obscured by people sitting in front of you. You can watch the video screens, of course, but then why spend so much for the seat? Also, if you are sitting in the front rows but only near the end of the row, you will have a poor sightline looking at the action on stage, and will not have a good view of the screens. If you agree with this perspective, several seats in the tiered sections 102 & 112, as well as in 101 & 113, would seem to offer much better value than all but the very best floor seats. I sat in section 113 for one of the Leonard Cohen concerts in 2012. It was a great seat -- and compared to today's price list, seems to have been a real bargain at $183!

Good morning everybody. A lot has happened while I was sleeping (badly, I'd like to add). Thanks to Marie for posting the information and answering so many questions by email.

I have been reading the information we have got - and also your emails that have arrived during the night - and would like to draw your attention to these points:

The links and other information will be posted in this thread at 10 am today, EDT

- maximum number of tickets per order is 8
- "Welcome to LC's Montreal Package" 235 CAD is not a ticket but a bonus that can be added to any concert ticket (at any price level)
- Preview to the Museum on Nov 6/7 is available only through the VIP and Welcome packages (the official opening is on Nov 9, I don't known if there are still tickets available).

The price table we got some days ago was broken. Here are the correct ticket prices:


REGULAR TICKETS

P1 $276.50
P2 $188.00
P3 $117.00
P4 $63.00
P5 $40.25

All prices listed are inclusive of tax and s/c. Handling fee of 5.75 CAD to be added. All prices are in CAD

Thank you MaryB. I am sorry I put my question in a way that could be misunderstood.

I meant at 10am EDT - where will the info be posted. Will the first post be altered with the additional infos or will there will be a new post?

Sorry again!

I'm thinking the first post will be altered, but the info will come also as a last post ????

Only Marie and Jarkko can answer that question and I'm sure they are extremely busy right now.

Sorry I can't help.....

As far as I can see the mentioned sections 102 & 112, as well as 101 & 113 are all "red" and therefore pricelevel 1 (same as the floor). please correct me if I am wrong!

The waiting room on the evenko site is open and I'm in line. I'm new to this so maybe I missed something but I didn't need a password to get in line, but I'm not buying a VIP package.

I think that you are correct, and that they are also sold at Price Level 1. I was simply saying that I believe they are better value (because they are tiered and still relatively close to the stage) than most of the seats on the floor. I do agree that the best seats are in the centre floor section close to the stage, but it seems that these seats are going to be difficult to acquire without paying astronomical VIP prices. Good luck!

I believe the evenko presale is separate from the forum presale, and probably with a different allotment of tickets.
