I would love to participate in the presale, but i have no code to do so. How does one get a pre-sale ticket code? Figured it would be automatic to his fan list, but guess not....

Go to the thread on the North American Tour 2009 page that reads:

PRESALE PASSWORDS - UPDATE: OAKLAND PRESALE MARCH 19

viewtopic.php?f=32&t=13489

It has all the info you need. Good luck!

STROEBE,

Did you read my reply (just above) to your post?

The link to the presale information works, and so does the link to the presale itself at Ticketmaster. I was able to find tickets just a moment ago.

JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS POSTED FOR YOU!

Click on the link from my post just above.

In that post, click on the Ticketmaster link to buy tickets.

Type in your quantity and the password (without spaces) from the first link you went to.

Buy your tickets.

That's it!!!


And sorry, I promise not to post colored or oversized text in the future, but it seemed necessary this time!

Good to hear that so many finally got great tickets (have received also many emails confirming this).

We will have more good news soon, be sure to check the Files & Forum during this weekend (or early next week).

Thanks Jarkko, I got ORCHESTRA row b, center!!!I was even offered front row Y, 2 seats but decided that since I could save $50/ per seat and sit 2 rows behind.
Only glitch was that despite being registered with Ticketmaster and having bought tickets online for the 2 other LC shows at the Paramount, after I selected my ticket and TM showed my visa credit card, TM insisted that it needed to VERIFY my card with the issuer- I freaked out, since the screen was blank, so I clicked back space and there was my ticket again with the time ticking away. I called my credit card
issuer and screamed that time was of the essence- and they sent me to the bank's
site, gave me a temporary password and luckily I beat the clock. TM gave me 9 mins to complete my sale and I needed every minute of it. So dear fellow fans, make sure your card is verified prior to trying to buy a ticket.

is this another impediment to completing online fan presale. My BANK said that Ticket Master initiated this VERIFY , not the bank.

Thank you so much Jarkko, I was lost in the wilderness and now I have two Row H tickets AND I think I'm blogging, or posting or something.
I'm excited about it all.
Been loving L. Cohen 40 years or more & this will be
my first time to see him in his person. Very cool. 8)
Thanks so much for the help, you get a gold star!

Glad everyone's happy. I also checked today, even though I have pretty good seats for Tuesday (row bb). Row B came up for me today on the first try. Tried again and got row K. Too bad I couldn't afford to go twice, specially with these more expensive tickets, but it was a lot easier today than the first two days. Hope everyone got tickets that wanted them. :D
