So, if the presale for the first Canadian cities will be "much later on March 11th", I wonder if that means I'll be up all night, or if I have to wait until tomorrow. Either way, I won't get much sleep. Less than an hour til I find out (if my math and time zones are right. Stupid Daylight Savings Time).

I'm aware of that. However, if you read all of his post you'll see that it says below:

- at the moment we do NOT have information about the pre-sale of European concerts

The original question posted was regarding presale information and there'll be no presale information this evening. Just dates.

That's right. We will have MANY European concerts listed but no pre-booking information. You will see that our friends in UK will be spoiled!! -- Today's list will go to the end of July.

I have tried to get tickets for the Nick Cave gig in the Castle from the official start of the ticket sale and all i got on the site was .... no tickets available for nick cave... not even a sold out thing or anything.... cheers!
No I don't think the presale will start then, but what do I know? Confetti says they'll be on public sale of Friday and he'll be right about that. If you want to be sure, then you'll have to stay up and see.
My signature is supposed to be funny!

Oops Jarkko beat me to it!

Margaret;

Sorry; I must be too excited to read properly. That link, by the way, won't work for another 48 minutes. It'll work as soon as the info is released. It's just a way to keep this forum from overloading, from what I understand.

Hey jarkko, before things get too crazy tonight, thanks for all of your help in this. Try to get some rest when all of the craziness is through.

If the Summer tour goes well, LC will probably be back in Winter for closed venues tour.

Do The Math

Everybody gets points based on their past participation on the forum. Highest scores get first crack at the Advance Ticket Sales.

Add:
100 points: for every year you have been a registered member of The Files.
10 points: for every post.
10 points for every Private Message you have sent.
100 points: if you are a moderator of this site
50 points: if you ever asked to be a moderator only of course Jarkko politely turned you down.
10,000 points: if you are an official IFC.
50 points: if you went to Hydra and said you climbed to the Monastary only you really didn't but spent the day in a darkened room nursing a hangover.
1000 points: for every time you've lied and claimed to really, really like Jazz Police.

Subtract:
1000 points: for every poem you have posted on The Files.
25,000 points: If you have ever had a screaming fit on the forum which ended in your apologizing to Leonard, Jarkko and the forum members for your unseemly behaviour.

andreigheorghe: I believe the tour will continue in August in Europe if everything goes well. However, we only have dates now up to July 29.
