A big thank you to Marie, Jarkko, AEG, everyone behind the scenes who brings these presales to fruition, and of course, Leonard. The lengths to which you all go for this forum family are much appreciated. Seattle and Portland - I'm on my way!

P.S. I love the new Ticketmaster "select your seat" format!

I scored two excellent aisle seats for the LA Nokia.
TM gave me a hard time about my Visa (perhaps a tad overused today :D ). So I easily switched to the second card I had pre-registered.
It went very smoothly.

Thank you again and again and again to Jarkko, Marie and everybody who worked on this pre-sale on our behalf.

I would like to add my thanks to Marie and Jarkko for all their hard work on our behalf. I can't imagine what it must have been like for them trying to cope with a wobbly forum and the never ending demands of and questions from forum members. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

I'll be seeing you in the VIP Pit!

By the time I could get in and collect the password, it was already seating in Row J -- 10 rows back if you don't count the Pit, and about 16 if you do. Which I bought, since half my family is going to want to go. But I won't be sitting with them :lol: -- I'll be first row in the pit! :razz:

Slipkin, probably sitting next to each other. You in the 300 section?

Probably logged in a little late for the Pit, but still quite glad with the results - Orchestra, Row 5 - 300's (center)

@surfergirl, I passed up those same row J seats (my internal dialogue: " to heck with it, let's see where the Diamond seats are"), and wound up Pit row 1 also... :D

When I last saw a show at Nokia (Neil Young), I was also front row, and there was nothing-- no security DMZ, nothing-- between my seat and the stage. I literally rested my cup o' beer on the stage! (pre-show, of course, I would not encroach on an artist's space so while he was on it). I hope it is the same set up,this time, but do not expect it due to the cameras likely being there.

Nope. Cameras are not there at the front.
They are strategically out of sight, same as at the similar theatre, Caesars Colosseum

@Old Ideas -- I was at that Neil Young show too -- October 2007. The acoustic set you could get away with drinks on the stage; the second half though, which ended with Tonight's the Night, was electric so there was more vibration. One of the best N.Y. shows I've been to! Last LC concert at the Nokia, I was first row Pit in the 500 section, so the only moveable object in front of me was a large, young security person, whom I politely asked to move since he was blocking my view. He complied.

Arlene, will you be in Seattle or Vancouver?

I, too, had trouble with my Visa on TM, and when I called was told they were "really cracking down on fraud", which is all well and good...unless I'm trying to buy tickets! LOL Fortunately, I, too, had a second one registered!

Very happy with my Seattle & Vancouver seats! THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!

So excited for this!! This will be my third time seeing Leonard. The first time was at WaMu theater and then at the theater in the clouds. I don't have the highest hopes for sound quality at Key arena but I'm hoping they can modify it to some degree for optimal sound.

I have two seats. FLR AA, Row 9, seats 6 & 7. Both for $300 total. This seems like a great deal compared to some of the seats in front of me. So looking forward to this!!!
