Thanks for the info --
Do you know if we will be required to enter the theater immediately after getting the tickets or can we "go back for another round boys"?

How cool is this????
I hope this will also be for Calgry on April 26. I was wondering about when we could get the tickets to avoid being late for the show. Since leonard always starts on time, showing up fashionably late is a definite mistake.
Thanks Again jarkko and Marie--for keeping us apprised of all these things. I have never been so 'in the know' in my life. My acquaintances think I am a little gaga for Leonard. I always say --if you think I'm bad you should read the threads on the files --I am a mere neophyte compared to the fans in that forum.

A HUGE thank you to AEG and Leonard's management! And also to Jarkko and Marie! From slinking in the pits of despair this morning....worried about Leonard...worried about cancellations....I have risen to being incredibly HAPPY! This is a perfectly wonderful solution for the will-call tickets and it is a way to give a little extra to Leonard's Forum fans.

With immense relief...thank you again! :D

Good news! If Vancouver is included I think that, for the first time in my life, I'll actually hit the merchandise stands. Lovin' the revised 'intertwined hearts' logo.

This seems like a really helpful/cool thing. I hope Columbia, MD will have such a "window." Thank you for all your efforts, Jarkko.

Oh thank you, everyone: Jarkko, Marie, Leonard's tour management. I will keep checking back, and hope that the NYC show will be included. Jarkko, again and again I appreciate the way that you hear and react to people's concerns on the forum.

We really are treated so special by Leonard and his group, his/their management, Marie, and Jarkko... and all others more peripherally involved. We're just never taken for granted. It's wonderful.

Thank you soooo much for this. Any word about the prices of the merchandise? I really am dying to get a tour poster, that is what I am looking for.

That is awesome! thanks... Hey BTW.. does anyone know why there is a obstructed view to the center sections in the 300 seats at Nokia?
I got perfect seats and now they say they are a obstructed view. I am shocked at this one. I am sooo looking forward to this show!

Well i got a answer from the venue that the obstructed view statement on my ticket only refers to the second row of each of those sections and is because of a hand railing. WHEW! ;-)

I don't know which venue you're referring to, A Brick in the Wall. When I discussed the issue with a ticket seller at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, she told me that people would be "escorted" directly into the theater on picking up their tickets, and would not be able to go back outside and come in later.
