Planning for the next tour

Postby t.nehpets » Sun Aug 06, 2006 11:49 pm

Hi all,

As I sit here listening to my download from the Toronto concert, I can't help be reminded about failed plans my wife and I had to see the shows in Berlin & Leipzig... had the airfare sorted out, hotels (hostels), etc... sadly, couldn't sort out the tix.

Next tour we want to do a "101" tour of our own. We figure we can get time off work to follow them for 4 or 5 shows - Europe of North America, doesn't really matter, we have passports and will travel :icon_wink .

My question to you is this, are there any resources to help with tickets?? Any chance the band could help if we got a bus full of people?

I went to 15 shows and never had a problem getting tickets, so I'm not really sure why you weren't able to find tickets. There are lots of resources...venue websites, ticketing agencies (such as Ticketmaster), ticket brokers, ebay, lots of people on this message board were selling tickets...if there's a will, there's always a way.

No. Seriously? No. Why should they give tickets to people just because they travel by bus?

Same here. Need xtra money to buy that exspensive merchandise. I just hope there will be a "next time" for Depeche Mode.

Season tickets?

We decided on making the trip a little too close to the show. Hence, the problem getting tickets. The ticket touts on eBay were too pricey by that point.

I'm not suggesting free tickets - just face value would be nice! DM should consider something like a "season ticket" for the next tour... it would certainly make following them on tour easier.

Aw, no fat chicks for Jedi... Yeah, if there's another tour, nothing, and I mean nothing... not tornadoes, blizzards, high winds, rain, flooding, illness, stress, job, or family will keep me from seeing them as many times as my bank account and credit card will allow. I will buy the over priced merchandise, meet as many fellow boarders as I can and travel any distance in my little Cavalier to see my favorite band and I will love every minute of it!!!!!!!!!
Words are very unnecessary...they can only do harm...
