It appears that some venues were sold out almost instantly -- or else the systems were too clogged to show tickets (over an hour and a half now). Somewhere back aways there was mention of possible additional shows. Will those have presale days too? Guess I'll try for the public sales, though it seems like a wild chance at best.

Thank you to everyone involved in this pre-sale arrangement. I purchased a pair of 7th row floor seats (at the $150 price) for Hamilton at 10am and am delighted. From what I see, good seats are still available now even.

I have been following Ticketmaster and scalper woes for many years and am convinced that is the way of the future. There will always be more demand than supply for some shows, and brokers will always exist (and let's remember that many a fan has been able to make their dreams come true by paying more than face value, so that can be a valuable service). But the rampant abuse of the on-line ticketing by home-based scalpers across the land who buy seats for every show using tricks and techniques the casual concert goer cannot compete against simply must stop. And until Ticketmaster steps in to do something, artists like Cohen who take the time and effort who find ways around it will have my never-ending respect. The fact that no fan membership fee was required is even classier. Two ticket limit+Will call pick-up only=thousands of satisfied music lovers.

Bravo everyone and enjoy the shows!

Hi!

For some reason, the TM site let me select pick up at any ticketmaster location, by accident and that is what I selected. Are my tickets still valid and good or will the system cancel the order as a result? Help!

And thanks!!!

I've been to over 20 concerts here in Detroit since Nov. 2006.

Trying to buy tickets today was the worst disgrace in my opinion. I screwed around for 17 mins. with that damn passcode before it finally worked. By then it was too little, too late.

It is not giving me anything on the top prices. And at last check, only balcony seats remained for like $65.

I know he sells fast and he is a popular guy. But I have a hard time buying that all 5,200 seats at The Fox went in less than an hour just due to the passcode from this site.

Guess I will keep trying today or hope for the best Friday.

And whatever this $ 550 VIP option is, it's apparently sold out as of today too for The Fox or they're not going to make it an option until Friday.

Sure would have been nice if things worked properly and according to plan.

It looks like some websites are selling tickets for a second, May 30 show at Wang Theater -- has this second show indeed been added? Will there be a pre-sale?

I was able to pull fourth row center balcony in Minneapolis an hour after they went up (I was in a meeting and had neglected to leave my wife the security code). I am wholly satisfied and extremely excited for this show. Thank you Jarkko and everyone else for this opportunity, that was one of the smoothest ticket sales I have experienced for a high demand show.

Dear Jarkko,

I was able to get 2 tickets as soon as the sale started. My daughter, an university student, had a course last semester solely on the poetry and songs of LC. So you can understand her excitement to be able to attend one of his concerts. Fortunately I had seen him the last time in Calgary and also once in the Netherlands.
We are very fortunate to have been able to secure tickets. Thanks Jarkko for a fantastic job well done

happy in Calgary

Jasperavenue in Edmonton - I think I just sent you an email. Have you gotten in to the ticketmaster site? If so, you enter the password in the white box on the right, after you enter how many tickets you want. You first must click on the ticketmaster link that Jarkko posted on the passwords chain.

Hope this helps.

I don't think it is a sham if everyone else was able to buy tickets, perhaps you did something wrong.
