Do you know if later general public ticket sales will also be will call? Why I'm asking: I'm just wondering if tickets will be available on the secondary market later if one decides to travel to another city at a later date and wants tickets. Thanks.

Travel insurance is essential. A couple of weeks ago I get a yearly insurance that covers the entire planet so I'd be prepared for any eventualities ;-)
The insurance I mentioned was for the actual concert tickets from Ticketmaster.

Musicmania,,yes, I knew you were talking about the actual ticket insurance.. some general insurance companies will cover all losses if unable to travel which is why I just said travel insurance.. either way, be insured :!: :!: :!: :D

I'm still nursing both the disappointment and financial loss of booking tickets for the Madison Square Garden concert on 23 October 2009 and being unable to attend. It seemed unfair that I couldn't even give them away.
I remember when I was booking for Las Vegas in 2010 there was an option to insure the tickets incase we couldn't make it. It was cheap enough and gave peace of mind incase something would have kept me away. Thankfully I was able to attend. As the concerts I'm hoping to go to are the end of November, beginning of December I will take the option to insure again. Better safe than sorry if we had a repeat of the big freeze!
Hey Gwen - I was heartened to read this - and just googled info - and seemed that the price is reasonable enough ($7 per ticket if you buy the insurance at the time of purchase - $15 if later).

BUT - *sigh* - the coverage applied for "reasons" for cancelling is rather restrictive - like getting into the "ACT OF GOD" territory - and it might be difficult to provide proof to satisfy in order to recover costs ...

What other reasons could there possibly be for missing a Leonard Cohen concert?! ;-)

I remember a friend of mine had insured her tickets from the LV shows and then couldn't afford the airfare and she claimed back the cost of her tickets no problem! Obviously they have gotten more strict since then. Good to see it covers "bad weather" for flights!

Just thought this was worth mentioning: I just bought tickets for Montreal, & Evenko offered electronic tickets, so I selected that, & I was able to print out my tickets! I thought they were supposed to be only "will-call". . .

Interesting! I just selected Will Call as that is what Marie had said and it suits me to collect there. Interesting no insurance option with Evenko or if there was I missed it. Of course it would take an act of G-d to keep me away so let's hope we have no "Big Freeze" in Ireland this November.

Did you buy a VIP package or a regular ticket?

Hi Marie,

I bought a VIP package - is that the reason I was able to print the tickets?

I think it must be. The only option I got on a regular ticket was Will Call.
