Quote :

Tickets for David Jul 10th go on sale this friday may 8th at 10 am est the office, but there is a link to buy tickets at star tickets plus on the commongroundfest.com website. Those will be available starting at 9 est. He explained the way the tickets work. You can buy a special ticket that gets you an assigned seat 50 rows back from the stage. But GA is standing room only in front of the stage. Then there is a section for people who brought their own chairs behind that and then these 'assigned' seats. I said 'so if you want to be closest to the stage the best bet is just getting GA ticket' and he said 'yep, and then just get there early to hold your spot'.

Yay Michigan! I may be in Florida all summer, but its nice to see my home state getting some concert love. If this was closer to Rothbury I would probably consider it. Oh well, no big deal. Smile

haha dont tempt me. i almost think i need to either rent a RV and straight up travel the country during my summer ( because its obvious he isnt going to be staying on the west coast for any extended period of time..more like 3 shows 2 months apart) or plane hop around the country and try to bum rides and places to stay..lol

Come to the darkside we have COOKIES Razz
Oh and think of it this way-Lansing is only 3 hours from Valpo.....You came to Valpo-in a blizzard no less--I can guarantee we won't have a blizzard in July-may be hotter than hell-but you're used to that right????

wonder when tix go onsale? ive been buying them for like every show i remotely think i might attend. but then if i dont i can just sell the ticket. so far ive not sold any but VB..lol. and i exchanged MA and CT for VB so i dunno if that even counts!

thing is i have to prioritize. there are shows i have tickets for in IA and MT july 24 and 25. its not really economical to go to MI then home ( or wherever) and then fly all the way back to the states next door a week later u know..and even if there were shows in between in the area thats still a lot of nights hotel and a car to rent and doing all that traveling alone..so yeah id have to pass if thats the case.

I don't know.

I thought about taking my kids to this...so they don't have to wait til Sept...but then there's no way they could handle waiting in a GA line. So I guess they wait for Allegan. At least that one is assigned seats for them.

So in my email to them, I asked how many tickets will be available & also if they knew what time the show would be? The didn't quite answer my question about the amount of tickets
She did say the show should start about 8:30 or 9:00 but that is not confirmed & not concrete yet.
I emailed her back asking about the amount of tickets again.

okay so she is not going to answer me about the amount of tickets

My 2nd email to her
I have some friends that will not be able to buy them right when they go on sale, so that's why I asked about how many tickets will be sold for this.
We are wondering if you sell a certain amount? So we know how big of a hurry we need to be in to buy them.

Her reply
I’d love to tell you that you could take your time and wait, with the Festival being as large as it is (85,000+ people each year), but the reality of it is, I can never say for certain which shows will sell out and which are just solid sales all the way through.

tami i do that. i set it up to automatically take $100 out of my bank account each month and put it into an ING online savings account. my mom says i should limit myself to only going to shows if i have enough money in that fund for a plane ticket and all other costs. im like yeah right mom.. so thats what one show every 4 or 5 months?? i dont think so.lol

AI won't sell out and the best tickets aren't released until 2-3wks prior to the show. So go for David!! And it's cheaper!! LOL

Yeah I hear that LOL. I wanna go to AI simply to see Adam. But I'm only going to 1 show-at the end of the tour and I have a previous commitment the day of that concert so no waiting at the buses for me. I still want good seats-basically because I've been spoiled that way. But yeah-no matching clothes this time--that was a little wierd looking back LMAO.

God every new tour date being added is tempting for me. I don't really have the money right now, but dangit I can't wait until October (Perry) for another tour date! I think I'll just wait though to see what other dates David announces, for the second leg of the tour. Maybe then I'll start planning for another trip.

I'm so excited about this one!!!! It's exactly 1 hour from me so this is officially the closest he's come since the Idol tour. I'm so glad it's a Friday so I only have to use 1 vacation day. I like the idea of general admission. I think all my other festival shows are assigned seats.

I got an awesome surprise today. I won an award at work that comes with 3 extra paid vacation days!!! My co-workers were like, "oh, shit! that means she'll be seing 3 more david cook concerts." Laughing Thank goodness... I was burning through them pretty quickly. This brings me up to 28 days for the year. I never thought I would use them all on concerts but we'll see!

Hmmmmm... some of us will be in Akron when tickets go on sale. We will have to figure something out... well if that damn lottery is true I guess we don't need to be in line at 9 a.m.

Thanks! I think it is a lot more than normal companies. I started with 2 weeks but I've been there 7 years... actually to the date since today was my anniversary. 13 weeks is like unheard of around hear unless you count summer off for teachers. I hope they add some more west coast dates for you this summer!
