Got tix?

It looks like there are still dropping tikcets for several shows. So if you did not get any tickets, I would suggest you keep trying.

Also, have a look at the ANTI blog, which has some additional info on the ticket sales.

And I know you all want to let the world to know you have (not) succeeded in getting tickets. So, go ahead and shout it out in the comments...

I'm still waiting on news of a European tour...

Joe said...

Way to be proactive :)

pete lutz said...

Fourth row Knoxville!

K. Evans said...

Pit center left Knoxville!

Lisa G. said...

ORCH Row P 17 & 19 Knoxville!!!!!

J-Man said...

aargh...row W/Knoxville, but coulda been row P if i hadn't signed out of my acct in a different tab, trying to get better seats than what i had orig. oh well...happy to have tix to what will likely be my mom's 1st TW show!

Good luck to everyone today..........

SweetBlackMagic said...

k. evans...

You got pit center online? Amazing...good job. I'm in Floor Center R row V seats 2 and 4...which must be on the end since they apparently only have even numbers. Congrats to all...the Tickets Unlimited website is "different" to say the least...but at least it didn't completely crash like in the past.

Heat Miser said...

I got Center R Orchestra row B seats 2 & 4 for Knoxville. I don't see this row on the seating chart - anybody have an idea where these are?

Rachel said...

I got center, orchestra, row X... not too shabby. I clicked on it RIGHT at 9 am though, so I wonder how quickly this one sold out.

A said...

Anyone ever been to the Knoxville Civic Auditorium? I have row G Right Side and I'm just wondering what sort of line of sight I'll have to the stage.

SweetBlackMagic said...

heat miser...great seats! you're in the right section of the center seats...that's what Center R means...not Right Center. congrats!

pave9000 said...

left center row p. I'm just happy to have tickets!

SweetBlackMagic said...

still not sold out as of 9:34 EDT, but it's going fast. i actually graduated high school in this auditorium...lol. but i have no idea bout sight lines since i was on the stage. most places like this are very good in terms of not having "bad seats."

didgeridood said...

Row A Right Balcony, Front Row High, baby! Thanks Eyeball, for this site. These tickets were a b-day gift from my girlfriend, and your site kept her informed of all the changes! See me at the show and I'll buy you a beer, I'll be the one cheering my head off!

;-)

Jeff said...

how did you get pit seats? i logged on right at 9, and the best i could get was center right row y... i thought it would sell out quickly and then for shits and giggles checked in 15 minutes later to see if seats were still available, and would have gotten 2 rows better. oh well, he won't have to be seen up close to be loved, i'm sure the voice will fill up the place... can't wait!

koen van driessen said...

i'd love to get the tickets.. seems pretty easy, even from belgium. still not sold out. the only problem is that damn plane :)

dave said...

Got tix right at 9:00: Orchestra V-- Gotta make it rain!

Then for yuks, I just went back in @ 9:59, and tix are still available--I'm shocked! Not sold out after an hour? Maybe Knoxville is too remote for some people (we're driving down from Virginia...) but still, after the Orphans tour sold out in minutes, I expected this tour to do the same.

Congrats to all--see you in Knoxville! Thanks, Eyeball--this site is a huge service to Waits Nation.

Douglas said...

2 tix Atlanta. Woo-hoo!

Aaron said...

Phew, got 2 for Ohio.

Section MB-C, row I, seats 105-106

erter99 said...

I think Columbus is sold out as of immediately ... got 2 tix, front row loge C ...

rs said...

columbus was completely sold out by 10:03...but i got two floor far left!!!

frenchpress said...

I've got the shakes. Pit CCC for Atlanta.

J-Man said...

orch-RC row L for the ATL!!

let's get the summer groove on!!

thanks eyeball & cheers to the TW community, - RJ

K. Evans said...

Columbus - Floor 4, row P, seat 25.

As for how I got pit for Knoxville - I was logged in to the page about five minutes prior to 7am (here) and just kept re-doing the page with number of tickets and section until it finally let me through.

Charlie said...

I got seats in the LOGE A for Columbus. I've wanted to see a concert in the loge for a long time now. I have a lot of friends who work in the theatre industry and they all say that's actually one of the best places to be for a concert in terms of a theatre's acoustics and what-not. On the other hand, every single time I've ever been to Columbus, I've gotten horribly, horribly lost. Oh well, I'll find it somehow. See you guys there!

Arianna said...

Scored a Jacksonville ticket!

this is a dream come true!

Andrew Kirell said...

i got balcony section, row Y for Columbus. anyone have any idea how democratic the views are at the Ohio Theatre? i'm a little worried that sitting so far back is going to be a negative experience.

Logan said...

Front row center columbus, like orchestra pit center, row AAA, next I must conquer Tulsa!

erter99 said...

Ohio Theater is an old school movie theater, so I don't think there are any "bad seats," as they say. I think you'll be happy even back in the balcony ...

josh said...

2 for Ohio. Anyone care to help me intrepret these? They are orchastra, but how far back...I am clueless.

Sec- Floor 3 (I get)
Row- L ???
Seats 121-123

Shoot me an email to Joshroush@yahoo.com , and I would be forever greatful.

THANK YOU EYEBALLKID!!! Your site rocks.

Sam said...

2 Orchestra in Ohio!
Row M, Section 4.
Should be great!!!!!

Joe said...

Two tickets -third row floor. Columbus. Wahoo! Went back to check and everything was gone by 10:03

Da Weave said...

BALC CENTER L C 21 23

I got mine for the Knoxville show. My third time seeing TW, my wife's first. Never been to Knoxville and looking forward to that too. Any cool bars to check out there?

Thank's Eyeball Kid for pulling the info all together and making it easy.

Hoist that Rag!

OK HW

Alex Sobolev said...

Columbus, section 4 floor, row S! I went back to get more tickets after getting these, and it seemed that the show had already sold out.

Rich4art said...

Got SEC 3 Row D for Columbus. I am really surprised there are still good seats left for Atlanta. The Fox Theater is a great venue, but I can't make the show. Gonna try for B'ham tickets later!

Shawn Feeney said...

Got one for Columbus, ORCH. Coming from NY, now just need to find a place to crash that night.

Dany said...

I am from Toronto. I bought 2 tickets for Ohio show :) I checked - there was no problem to buy tickets for Knoxville event. I am very happy as I have never seen Tom alive...

Brian said...

Row X and AA in Atlanta (my friends got row AA.) I owe it all to you, Eyeball! Thanks for the heads up and these shows!

A Wanderer said...

Are you guys sure Columbus was sold out by 10:03 or so? It's not showing sold-out yet, though perhaps Ticketmaster does that. But who gives a crap, I GOT MY TICKETS FOR COLUMBUS!!!
Balcony, Section B Row G. I'm happy to be there. I've been to the theater before (on the floor though) to see the White Stripes. It's a cool place.
Anyway, that was my first time using TM and it scared the crap out of me...I'm so glad its over. Viva la Tom!

cappa said...

LOGE C, Row E, 101-103 Columbus

queendana said...

I just got two tickets for Atlanta!!!! LRB, row AA, seats 118-120. I don't care where I sit, I just can't believe I'm going to see him, and I don't even begrudge the fact that I'm going to be flying from Connecticut. WORTH IT.

!!!!

Matador said...

Columbus, Loge C, row A for me :)

Bad Town said...

Columbus here I come!

Logging on right at 10 EST got me two in the balcony, just like Louisville in 2006.

The Ohio Theatre has a great balcony ... not a bad seat to be had.

Matto the Hun said...

Got ATL tix at the Fox Theater

ORCH section Row CC (close to centre) about halfway back.

I tried for the $105 highest price tix first, but no dice. Kinda surprised didn't have a chance at those, I was in the tickets purchase right about when it flipped on.

I had a hard time with the scrambled letter crap though. Hate those blasted things.

Still, just glad to join the ranks of those with tickets, and still decent seats to boot.

I live 2 blocks from the Fox, if I couldn't go and I knew Tom was playing two blocks away, I think I'd have to slowly gauge my eyes out.

Dany said...

will they alow me to take camera inside and to take 1 picture?

Mark said...

I missed the Mule tour in 99 and the last tour in 06 despite all my efforts.

just got PIT tickets for Columbus and ORCH for Atlanta. I'm effing ecstatic.

many thanks to eyeball kid for keeping the site up to date and all the raindogs on the list!

Matto the Hun said...

For anyone going to ATL and hasn't seen this or is intersted; Fox Theater has a nifty seat locator chart thing-a-ma-bob

anonymous said...

i can't even curse i'm so angry. got to the credit card bit and they (ticketmaster) WOULDN'T let me go through with the purchase. was coming ALL the way from australia to see tom and there goes my chance. URRGHHH. tears have been shed already. you lucky buggers that got those OHIO tix! if ANYONE decides they want to sell a ticket (not some outrageous price obviously) god i would do anything. Us aussies will probably never ever get to see him. ok ok, im going to get a drink and wallow in my own self pity.

scott said...

jacksonville and knoxville baby I was shut out columbus. lets get ready and hope for st louis and phoenix

Rich4art said...

After reading all the comments, I see the the real fans all got tickets and, at that, great seats! I think big THANKS need be going to Mr. Waits. His efforts put those tickets in our hands and not in those of scalpers. THANKS TOM!

waytoblue said...

Pit DDD for Atlanta! I'm so glad he's performing at the Fox as opposed to the Tabernacle!

Lance M. said...

Close call. Got two for Columbus. Tickets were sold out in three minutes. Been waiting 15 years for this. MB-B H 22-24. Thought I heard a saxaphone, Im drunk on the moon! Wow!

Foobarred said...

Ochestra Section 1, Row F in Columbus!

Seems far to the right, does anyone know how the view is for that section close to the stage?

Aaron said...

I'd also like to know what the deal is with cameras at the Ohio Theatre?

My girlfriend is a photographer, would they care if she brought her camera? Or would we have to smuggle in a digital camera?

Alex Sobolev said...

Just to utilize all of the networking tools the internet has to offer; I just created a facebook event for the Columbus show. If you are on facebook and going to the june 28th show please add yourself to the event!

yourcodenameis:totti said...

i'm travelling to the states (from Norway) three days after the end of waits' tour. this really upsets me, as i might not get to see him in europe either. anyways, i'm glad you all got tickets. you deserve it!

Dany said...

Aaron,
I will take camera but if they won't allow to take it inside I will go to the parking lot and put it in the car.
By the way, can someone advise where to park (what intersection?) near Columbus Theatre at a resonable price?

Dany said...

Alex Sobolev
i'm russian too... :)

Robert said...

ughhhhhh Ticketmaster's phone line put me in an endless loop and I was shut out of Ohio at exactly 10am... Then I finally answer my friend's call and he's telling me he has front row seats and while on the line I pull up row X in the balcony but get rid of it because of what he's saying... then he sends me the email and it's row Y balcony... And to make things more fun he had no money in his account so I had to buy those 2 and couldn't get anything for my other friend who doesn't believe in credit cards or banks and the other who introduced me to Waits who's totally broke... at least I'm going I suppose though it's a 4-6 hour drive

2for2true said...

Knoxville: Center Left Row P - dead center...
Atlanta: LRA EE - dead center...

There are some great bars in downtown - a really nice one opened in Old City just recently - the Crown and Goose. It's an English style pub with great food.

I live in Knoxville and would be happy to anwwer questions about the venue, the city, hotels, etc...just let me know!

Robert said...

meant I was shut out online at exactly 10am.... but end of that venting, at least I do have tickets though would have been nice to share with 2 people who this would mean more to

shane said...

Got Floor 3 row Y for Columbus. Most of my friends got shut out.

There isn't really a bad seat in the Ohio Theatre. Thank the stars you got the seats.

Parking is right along the backside of the theater. Usually its 5 - 7 dollars...though they may inflate the prices for Mr. Waits.

Have a great time.

Wayne1234 said...

Ohio Theater. Right center Mezz. Row F. First waits show. driving from Canada. Anyone know ths venue.

Charles said...

ROW E seats 52-54 in Jacksonville Florida! YEAH!

Gentlemen of Braveness said...

St. Louis. Orch Pit. Third Row, aisle seats. Unreal!

pave9000 said...

Orchestra Row A in Mobile!!

Dany said...

Shane, thank for parking details.
Wayne1234, what time will you be leaving (Toronto?) for the show?

fist city said...

Orchestra row G in Houston!

Seth said...

Row L for Atlanta and R for Jacksonville! Sweet!

Magic Beard said...

Tix still on sale for ATL and JAX @ 11:15am EST

PEACE

J-Man said...

and tix for Knox avail

Amanda said...

Row G in Houston! God bless high speed internet.

shane said...

If you are facing the Ohio Theatre...to the left is another building then the street. Make a right on the street and go about 1 business and 1 hole in the wall bar and there is a parking garage that almost touches the Ohio Theatre...

just a little more detail because I was vague earlier...

Not really certain how many cars it holds.

Also...Columbus has the ComFest going on the weekend at Goodale Park which touches downtown on the other side of the Arena District. This is a FREE 3 day festival that is Fvcking awesome. Check that out if you are in town for those days. 5 stages of music, beer, art, it really is a good time and great local and national bands, blues, jazz, avant-garde, etc.

Wayne1234 said...

Concrats DANY.

Plan to leave Guelph Saturday morning around 5:30 - 6.

bluevelvetelvis said...

Go with best available if going through TicketMaster. I got tickets, but selected for too far up in the initial search and had to requery, thus pushing me to the back row of the Orchestra. Orch FF in Houston.

I am stoked I got tickets, but sad to think what I could have gotten if I hadn't run a limited query on first attempt.

rev said...

3rd row floor.
center.
Houston.

OMFG.

What do I wear!?!?

2for2true said...

I knew Knoxville would be a relatively slow seller....most locals have no idea who Tom is.

Kind of surprised Atlanta still has tickets, though. Guess this recession is hitting us raindogs too..

loubrown said...

Tried for Columbus, but seems like it sold out instantly. Luckily tried for knoxville and was able to get those. I dont understand the logic of how they release seats because I got Orch Row T at 10:40am. Knoxville may be three hours further for me to drive, but who cares. Time for a road trip!

frenchpress said...

i agree with bluevelvet elvis. start with 'best available' on TM. My boyfriend and i were both trying for atlanta. he was selecting the highest ticket price and it kept telling him none were available and i just left 'best available' on all and that's how we got pit.

shane said...

oh shit...

I was giving parking for the Palace Theater. Here is the Ohio Theatre:

heres the kicker, i live 2 streets away from FANNIN street.........

Wayne1234 said...

Fannin street is playing in my office right now.

Gleb said...

got front row tickets to the Jacksonville show. now to find a girl to come with me...

K. Evans said...

St. Louis - Fifth row centre! Use the phone number and keep holding, I didn't get through until 9:28 and still got a gem of a seat.

Houston - Orchestra L seat 14

My Visa is already crying.

francisalbertsinatra said...

gleb, i can dress up real sexy like for you, i mean im not a girl but it is waits, i guess i could do what it takes to see tommy...........enjoy....

Matto the Hun said...

@ frenchpress

Thanks for sharing that info on how you got Pit.

One would think that selecting the highest price and "Best Available" for the rest would give you the same odds as "Best AVailable" for everything.

One would think.

Thanks for the low down, I'll know better for Birmingham

Gleb said...

yeah rev, I was wondering if I should do a suit and tie, because this is an *event*. I can dress like a bum any other day of the week.

Noxfacta said...

Wayne1234/dany: Nice to know there are other Canadians mad enough to make the drive down to Ohio... ;)

And, Eyeball Kid: thanks a billion! You kept us well informed and it payed off!!

Hope all goes well for the European fans :)

bigrockcandymountain said...

Floor 3, Row R in Columbus!!!!!!!! Flying in from Chicago. Shoot, id've been happy just to get in the door. Does anybody from Columbus know if Used Kids and Bernie's Down Under are still around on High Street? Used to "live" at those places when I was in college. Be nice to be back in Columbus for a few days.

cdollaz said...

For Houston, I got Pit, Row 4, seats 111-112 and my buddy got Orchestra, Row A (true first row), seats 101-102 (the very center). I'm trying to figure out which seats are better. I am closer but off to the side and I may have to look up.

ezekielhubbard said...

Columbus: FLR 4 Row U, 17 & 19.
Hearing that it sold out in 3 minutes makes me savor my good fortune all the more.
These seats will be enjoyed.

Matt said...

Front Row Center in St. Louis and it's my hometown! OP03 Row 1! My heart is still pounding! I thought 8th row at the Ryman was amazing...

loubrown said...

It definitely is a dress as you like event. From going to the Akron show in 06 it runs the spectrum. There will be people dressed in suits and gowns, people dressed like Tom, and people in shorts and t-shirts with tattoos.

Gleb said...

i would need about 2 liters of bottom shelf gin, and you'd have to wear red stilettos. wouldn't hurt to shave either....or just a trade for your sister.

Spiros said...

I joust successfully bought AL tix...

shane said...

bigrockcandymountain...

Used Kids is still there. But if you remember World Records, that is its new location [a few doors down]. They seemed to have had a fire a few years ago and had to relocate.

The other is gone, I believe.

shane said...

actually...

Bernies Distillery is still alive and well. I misread.

K. Evans said...

I join the ranks of Canadians attending, but this Saskatchewan boy will be flying instead of driving.

This site is such a godsend, and it's contributed to making today such a memorable one.

lucy said...

Thanks eyeball kid for all the notics and links! The angel of dumb luck was looking out for me. I went to Knoxville tix site just to prepare for 10 a.m. sales, didn't realize tix had started selling 45 minutes earlier. Still I got two tix, Orchestra Right-Center Row S. I'm sure they're not the best, and friends tell me this venue has terrible acoustics, but I'm just glad to be in the door.

bigrockcandymountain said...

Shane, thanks for the info...yeah I remember "World Records"-that was up a flight of stairs I believe? Does Ron House still own the place?

Lord said...

Houston Pit Row 4. Oh My God.

Anyone have any ideas if Pit Row 4 is better than the first few rows of the Orchestra, if both are in the same general line of sight? Its not tucked under the stage right?

Raindog69 said...

Houston Row F. Yeah Baby!

Frida said...

I'm going to St. Louis, and I'm leaving on a plane!

Orchestra section 2, row M.

All the way from Mexico City!

I waited for years for this chance, and I still cannot believe it!!
Any hotel suggestions?!

shane said...

I was there last summer looking for albums and I believe I saw him behind the 'buying' counter...so...I think.

portly guy? comes his hair straight down? Brown hair? rugged face?

right?

John said...

Pit, Center Left, Row R for Atlanta. Thanks, Kid for spreading the word.

Thomas said...

I'll see Tom in Dallas.

Baron Lane said...

I'm in. See you in Dallas!

J-Man said...

FRONT ROW, B'HAM!!

so stoked, but i really REALLY need that that confirmation email to show up from the phone transaction.

hope everybody else gets the seats (or at least shows) they want.

PEACE

pave9000 said...

Knoxville (Row P), Mobile (Row A), and Birmingham (Row G) here I come!!

Matto the Hun said...

Birmingham row P

Well I'm done.

I'm I the only one who finds this exhausting. I feel like leaving work and going to bed now. (I can't... but I feel like I should)

After getting tix, I'm not sure what possible use this day could have.

halle said...

Woooo - Birmingham Row W!
Road trippin' from Durham, NC, baby!

waytoblue said...

I got 5th row floor for Birmingham. It was actually the 3rd ticket I pulled up...I ditched the first two. Is anyone familiar with this theater? I'm on the outer edge....just wondering how the view will be.

Matto the Hun said...

I meant "Am I the only one... "

from my previous comment.

See, that just proves i should go home.

Musashi said...

Hey Pave 9000 I too will be in Birmingham row G, center, and dead center in the middle of the center! See ya there. I'm driving from Boston then spending the 4th of July in New Orleans!

I'm exhausted now, I feel like I just gave birth...and I'm a guy.

Andrusko said...

Constellations are in line for me. Stuck on a business trip June 23-26 in Dallas. I'm from Minneapolis. Got ticket for the Dallas show. Free travel, hotel, food, etc. Just had to buy the ticket. Cannot wait!

Dave said...

Is this the complete US tour? Will Mr. Tom Waits be coming to the West Coast? How about Seattle? He really should play Seattle, that's where all the cool Tom Waits fans are...

bigrockcandymountain said...

Shane,

Yep, that's the guy. Thanks again.

And, of course, I'd like to echo the others here thanking Eyeball Kid for keeping us informed and running this, let's be honest, essential site. Cheers to all those with tix.

Is there going to be a post on where folks will be meeting pre-show in the various cities?

Maya said...

Dany said...

dany/Wayne1234

:)well, there is no other way to see Tom alive... He gives concerts not very often and it seems he doesn't like to do Canada ... Also there are so many Tom's fans in Russia (and his style is closer to Russian rather than American traditions...:))he refuses to meet :(

By the way, do you know our local The Lollipop People band from Brampton ON? If not, google it and listen the samples. Also I want to mention for all Tom's fans: there is an EXCELLENT british band Tiger Lillies. They visit Canada fron time to time.

Shane, thanks again for parking info.

2for2true said...

Just for laughts, I went to TM and kept trying for B'ham tickets, even though I can't go to the show. First pair I pulled up was on the floor, center, row u. Threw them out and pulled another 20 pair out....about 15 minutes later, I get row J center, on the isle..GREAT SEATS. Threw them back for some other lucky dog.

I'll never take the first pair again, unless they're in the pitt.

Now, I'm off to toast my great seats for the Knoxville and Atlanta shows.

2for2true said...

FYI, if you're traveling to Atlanta..

I just booked a room at the Marriott Renaissance with a AAA discount for only $107.00, just about a block or two away from the Fox. I stayed there for the Joe Jackson show three weeks ago, and it's a spectacular property with great amenities. Very close to the interstate, too.

jennie said...

Sixth row, B'ham. Far right, but that's OK, it's the SIXTH row!!!

Alabama Theatre is a gorgeous place, if you haven't been, check out their site. http://www.alabamatheatre.com/

I booked a room at the historic '20s Redmont Hotel, only five blocks away! http://www.theredmont.com/

John said...

yes! atlanta- orch row S, right on the center-left aisle. ah, this is gonna be sweet...

K. Evans said...

Tulsa - Level 1, Section B, Row B, Seat 1.

I think that's an incredible seat, but I can't seem to find a seating chart anywhere.

evan said...

calgary alberta canada. i will be at the houston show... flying all the way down... a god damn dream come true.

(had to break it into 4 lines to fit)

here is a seating chart for another show the Brady Theater is having, I am sure it will be similar/identical for tom.

tulsa: section B row C seats 6-7

st louis: ORO2 row AA seats 23-25

any locals know any nearby bars in tulsa or st louis for raindogs to congregate?

evan said...

ps... i can't believe there are still tickets available? come on people!

Real Gone said...

Tulsa: Level 1, Section C, Row 3! Can't breathe.

Switchboard said...

I don't have anything! Not even a head!

5 cent said...

Important Note for people waiting to buy Phoenix tickets!

Looks like they have just switched it to NOON Mountain Time instead of NOON pacific.

So thats just 33 min away!

Peter said...

4th row in Atlanta. I'll be flying down with my brother from Calgary, AB to see this show. Should be the greatest show of my life.

Real Gone said...

Ben: In walking distance to the Brady, I would suggest Sound Pony, Lola's or Caz's (the bar, not the restaurant). In very close driving distance, I recommend McNellie's.

Madolan said...

One ticket each to St. Louis, Columbus, and Knoxville. It's going to be one of the finest American road trips of my life.

beth_lynn said...

After screaming at TM from 10AM -10:25 EST (trying for Columbus), I decided to try my luck at Knox. Landed lwr. bal. ctr. At least I got them. I was surprised, since they had been on sale for a while by then.
Is anyone familiar with Knox? (I'm coming from Pittsburgh.)
Thanks, Eyeball Kid!

Jo said...

Let me just say i tried for 15 years. Never got to see him once (not that he tours all the time). I can't believe how well this system worked.
And now...we will be at the Ohio show (we are driving from Chicago). Seats Row S.

minuteman said...

Got two tix for Columbus thanks to my sister-in-law. It is a dream come true to finally see Tom!

Magazine Scenes said...

It looks lik Pheonix might be on sale at noon pacific time after all?
They are not on sale, yet it is noon in mountain standard time?

Uuugh.

john said...

It seems that the Phoenix tickets did not go on sale at noon MST. They must be sticking with the original noon PST.

2for2true said...

Beth_Lynn:

I live in Knoxville - apparently one of the few raindogs in this town. I'd be happy to help you or anyone else coming to Knoxville for the show with advice on hotels, restaurants and bars.

Arianna said...

Jacksonville tickets are still available as of 2:15pm est

O-Daddy said...

Columbus ticket holders...I highly recommend the Flatiron Cafe for a snack and a beverage before the show. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Ohio, and they've always had Tom on the juke. 129 E Nationwide Blvd, Cols 43215. And I think it's right next door to a Red Roof Inn.

jen said...

i got ohio! row g. now if only all the hotels downtown weren't booked.

many many thanks to the eyeball kid for the listings.

Mark said...

Phoenix is chaos. not on sale at scheduled time. ticketmaster is blaming the promoters.

jen said...

o-daddy, red roof as well as all other hotels in the area are booked up.

i have reservations near the airport - TAXI!!

Vaarbewijs said...

Me to waiting for European tour!

Baron Lane said...

Thanks for the details to help do this Kid! If there is a meet up before the show in Dallas let me know.

JohnHemlock said...

It figures the show I wanted is the ticketing disaster. Ugggghh.

njcajaa said...

Phoenix Tues - 6th Row!

Mark said...

Phoenix-10th row in the middle!!

good thing my boss wasn't here to see me doing this!!

Maya said...

After trying for Columbus, ended up getting Knoxville - long drive from NYC!!

JohnHemlock said...

I got tickets for both shows. Wed was sold out but someone must've abandoned their shopping cart cause I got seats.

Lovey said...

Phoenix now appears to be sold out. If so, it did it in roughly 4 minutes. Also, I had tickets, but it took them away before my 2 minutes were up. Sadness.

Matlock said...

TWO TIX TO PHOENIX, first night!
very difficult. was online and also called ticketmaster 10 minutes before they went on sale to get in the queue. none of my online attempts worked, but as i was talking to the rep, two tickets next to each other were simultaneously released...

eddieocho said...

12th row Phoenix. Both shows sold out in 4 minutes.

au·tism (ô'tĭz'əm) said...

scored 2 tickets, PHX. 2nd night for may 18th. sec a, row 10.

saw mr. waits in nashville for the orphans tour and all i can say, the man is amazing. can't wait to see him in my hometown. orpheum theater is the coolest place this side of the ryman auditorium.

Confetti Head said...

2 tix to El Paso row L seats 115-116!!! Woo hoo...one more thing marked off my "Things to do before I die" list!!!

P said...

Anyone else get locked out of the Phoenix tix?

Apparently 5 re-loads was too much...strange, it's never happened for any other show. Well done TM...thank you so much.

Magazine Scenes said...

GOT THEM.

Balcony-B row 2, seats 7-8.


I'm traveling from Portland, OR for the show :-D.

Travis said...

St Louis: Orchestra Pit 4, Seat 102. Front row center!

I'd be happy to get together beforehand to anyone going to the show here. Email me!

shelby said...

I'm happy to have the chance to post this here because I've been bursting at the seams for the last few hours. (Everyone I mention it to says, "Who's that?")
I scored 2 front-row center seats to the Tulsa show (section C; row 1)!

Matt said...

My wife and I were each in our separate offices, trying to get 3 tickets to either Phoenix or Tulsa. With the credit card and quantity restrictions I grabbed a second computer and focused on Phoenix, while she tried Tulsa, waiting to hear what I reported. I immediately got 2 Phoenix tickets, bought them, but couldn't get a third using the other account. Anyway, we now have the three tickets we need for Phoenix, but we accidentally also have 2 for Tulsa.

While I understand the ticketless policy is to prevent scalping and ensure fairness, it also forced me to make a decision on two tickets I can't use or return. Which doesn't seem fair either, really.

Has anyone heard anything about returns? I'd happily give up the convenience/service charges to let TM put them back in the system, which hurts no one, costs nothing, is technically feasible, and seems in line with Wait's attempt to make tickets available at face value to as many people as possible.

I know, caveat emptor. But stil...

Tina said...

@ lovey - I feel your pain...
but since im eurotrash anyway i shall wait for those dates :P

njcajaa said...

and Thank you Eyeball Kid for this site! Definitely calmed the nerves a bit - now ready for the NJ to Phoenix trip. Still in happy shock.

Real Gone said...

Shelby- I'll be right behind you. Can't wait. Have you heard whether the Tulsa show has sold out yet? Nice work on the front row.

walkingspanish said...

Got kicked off ticketmaster at the last second screamed a few choice words in my office and reloaded got floor seats in Phx. I am exhausted. For those of you who didnt get tickets. Check back daily. I got 8th row seats for the Orphans Louisville show that way. Dont give up!!!!

b-Zen said...

15th Row, 1st night Phoenix!
Now I can die, after the show of course.

Frida said...

I'm enjoying the adrenaline rush! Anybody going to the St. Louis concert who wants to meet up, email me at maybe_just_rex@hotmail.com.

Anybody here belong to the old raindog mailing list?

RAftw said...

I had three browsers open, synced to NIST...I clicked at 11:59:59 and missed the Tuesday show in Phx. I did however get two to Wednesday - BEST...B-DAY...EVER!

shelby said...

Real Gone - hope to see you there. My wife and I are coming in from Fayetteville and would not be averse to the idea of getting together with some like-minded people before the show. By the way, as of 3:40 CDT, tickets were still available for the Tulsa show.

AlbinoKoala said...

Got General Admission tix to dallas, and got 3rd row floor seats for Tulsa. Thanks Eyeball Kid! Your site makes me realize that im not the only one clogging up my brain with Tom Waits.

SweetBlackMagic said...

Definitely DO NOT give up for those cities using Ticket Master...they routinely hold back some tickets and release them as the show date gets closer.

AndrewB! said...

section A 19th row opening night, still dont believe it, flying out from the bay area, any good bars in phoenix to meet up at before the show?

A said...

Glad to see so many success stories! I scored far right, row G tickets for Knoxville. Anyone familiar with the Auditorium know if those are decent seats? I can't really get a good sense of the stage in relation to the seats. I know it doesn't matter because I'll be there regardless and I should just shutup and be happy I have tickets at all.

kage said...

Tulsa . . .

Level One, Section C, Row C, Seats 7 and 8!!!! YEAH!!!

First I could not believe that Tom was actually coming to my town, and now I have tickets dead center in the sixth row! This day could not get any better.


Wait, it can. I will also be going to Dallas!

Chris said...

2 tix for Phoenix (tues.). Section C, Row 22. Not great seats, but I'll be there! Hope the whole paperless system works ok, since I'll be driving 350 miles (from Hollywood)to be there.

Rasmus said...

At this point, I would like to give a HUGE thank you for all these updates. I got my tickets, thanks to this awesome blog! Woooohoooo!

GinaSuperCat said...

Well I wasn't about to f* about with trying for better so I took my first draw for Knoxville-- row S center, and lucked out for Atlanta--row B! [grin]


Cheers to all who got tickets, scanning the comments it looks like most were treated well...

Thanks EyeBallKid, for all you do...go team!

Scott said...

June 17 Phoenix 5th row balcony.
These were the best available 1 minute after they went on sale! Who wants to meet for drinks before/after the show?

Michael said...

Still can't believe he's coming to my hometown of El Paso. Got on the phone at 12:58 and snagged two in the 2nd row of the pit (row BBB). Still some balcony tickets available as of 15 minutes ago. If anyone's thinking of traveling to El Paso you won't be disappointed in the beautiful Plaza Theater.

Evilmnky said...

For the 1st time in 20 years, Tom Waits will play Dublin, Ireland this summer, and I will be in Canada.

Good job I managed to get orchestra seats for the Ohio gig! Only a short 12 hour drive from Montreal! :D

beth_lynn said...

2for2true,

Thanks for the reply.
I'm interested in what bars / hotels you can recommend. If email would be easier, just let me know.
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.
I'm interested in the recommended bars / hotels are near the Auditorium. If email works better, let me know.
Thanks!

oops, some trouble with my computer, there.

ldnearthesea said...

Took a day off work to be at my computer at 8 this morning, 10 central, to purchase a St. Louis ticket and scored by 8:06. I figured St. Louis was a good bet because it's a rather large venue with 4300 seats. I really wanted to see one of the Phoenix shows, and get two and perhaps bring a friend who wasn't sure she could make it. No dice as noon passed PDT. By 12:04 I wasn't getting onto the purchase page I needed, but a check back message on Ticketmaster. I'm glad I went with my instincts and pursued a St. Louis ticket. Flying to St. Louis from San Jose on the 25th of June, returning two days later.
Being that I missed opportunities to see Waits in '75 and '77, and didn't know he was at the Bridge Concert until the Monday morning after, it's about time I see the man live!

Bone Machine said...

I opted for balcony seats for the St. Louis show since I have a few ticket irons in the fire at the moment. This will be my fourth Tom Waits show and prior to 1999, that is four more times than I thought I would ever see the man.

waytoblue said...

I picked up a box seat tonight for Jacksonville. I was initially just going to do Atlanta and Birmingham but just found some friends are flying down from N.H. for that show.

I expected these shows to sell out this morning but apparently there are several seats still out there.

3rd row orchestra pit for Jacksonville. I'm pretty happy about that. I was there RIGHT when they went on sale.

Thanks for keeping everyone posted on all the information. I was following this and Anti-'s blog closely the past week or so.

It sounds like the experience of you guys in the US and Canada was way easier than the situation on the last European tour.

I was lucky enough to get tix for Berlin but it involved various wire transfers to German banks from the UK and a lot of nervous waiting until the tickets were in my hand.

Come on Tom - announce those European dates!!!

Bukowskiwaits said...

AIIEEE!! I got the crappiest seats in Columbus, but who cares, right? Saw him with my pops in 6th row Chi 2001, cried the whole time, ridiculously amazing, etc. So The Hub and I are driving in from Chi (as I see many others are) and would love to hang out with some other raindogs pre/postshow. I keep dreaming about how wicked it would be if he somehow added a Chi show. '06 I was on my honeymoon, and I literally almost rescheduled it. Can't wait for the Waits!

Bukowskiwaits said...

frida,
I used to be on the raindog mailing list, but honestly, I found a lot of people on there to be snotty elitist jerks, so I left. Believe me, I was disappointed, since Tom fans are such a strange and delightful brotherhood, generally speaking.

Chad said...

3 row knoxville. I can't believe Tom is coming here. If anybody has any questions about the Knox Area I would be happy to help. Also, set list predictions?
