Not sure why the original didn't post, but here is the corection -----

I have Diamond package merchandise - NOT TICKETS - for re-distribution at cost for both Boston and Montreal.

Let me know

I must say I am delighted to be going, but would love not to go through this again when second dates are annouced!

Probably will not be presales for second dates. Glad you finally got your VIP tickets, L from M. I was wondering if you saw the message about the passwords since you were the first to ask about them. Hope that ticket is a good one since you really struggled for it.

It looks like if you want the pit in Boston you have to pay $500 for the diamond package, which is twice the cost of just plain tickets. But are there people on this forum who want to buy the additional "merchandise"? For how much? Enough to bring down the cost of the tickets to normal prices?
People in Europe are unable to buy VIP packages and none are being offered in Europe. So, we believe there will be a demand for merchandise. We hope to be able to facilitate the buying and selling on the Forum with the ceiling price bringing your costs down to what a regular ticket would cost in that section. No guarantees of any of this at this point, but there is hope.
Marie - I still can't get over how you are so "on top" of this very confusing pre-sale - a tip of the fedora well- deserved!

Do you think we will have notice before the 2nd dates go on sale Marie or will it be annoucement and instant sale?

I wish I could say that there will be some kind of notice, but at this point, I wouldn't count on it. Of course, if we hear anything, we'll let you know, even if it is only to tell you that a second date is coming and you should be at the ready.

Thanks Marie. Fingers crossed although I have to say whatever happens as it stands I am extremely happy that I am even going to Montreal. Now I think I'll stop hijacking this thread with posts about Montreal and VIP packages ;-)

Marie - yes it was somewhat stressful but I was lucky enough to get 3rd Row aisle! And never realy thought I would be able to scale down to regular prices by redistributing the merchandise......an unexpected bonus !

May I borrow your wand some day !

Those may be the best available now. You can ask it to give you the next-best seats instead. I think you can look at 3 sets of seats before you have to start over.

You could also try specifying the balcony and see what's available there. As I remember the theater, the balcony
starts in about the middle of the theater.
Hi, thanks rmura, I went ahead with the row m tickets. When I opened other tabs the best I could get was row z.!! I thought I had posted another message but it didnt send. So, once again, a big thank you to Jarkko, Marie et al for the fantastic hard work done for all of us.. it really is so so good of you. Roll on December (preceeded by Verona!). :D Catherine

Aha! I shall look for you in Boston, sir. I'm in row J, though, can't afford the up-fronts this go-round, alas.
I'll see you there Dan! :)

I did a quick thank you much earlier today, right after the Detroit presale. I took the day off from work to "spring-clean", forgetting last week that Monday was the presale. Only a little cleaning was completed, as I was totally mesmerized by the presales...in each time zone. Marie, I don't know how you did it. You were everywhere at all times. You had an answer, or would find one. You commiserated. You shared others joy. I can't even begin to realize the energy and adrenaline you used up today. Thank you so very much for every moment of "your" angst. You deserve a rest, and that glass of wine! ;-)

Many, many thanks to Jarkko, Marie, AEG, and of course, Leonard. As friends/followers/fans we are so thankful for the presale arrangements, and the ability to have the first opportunity of seat selections in various price ranges.

May your evening be peaceful and calm!
