OFFICIAL D+T @ DTE Thread (Pine Knob)

Woooooo!

Kinda weird they chose a bigger venue like Pine Knob though.

    I should be Pine Knob (DTE) come on now....

    I'm totally shocked we got a show. They seemed to be cool doing the larger venues so not surprised about that part. Gets more people in too. And selfish side of me is happy as it's easier to get tickets than if they did some small theater.

    This is the most random of the announcements, but good for Michigan! Last D+T show was 15 years ago?

    Can't believe they're selling lawn for this

    What I saw was 95 lower pavilion and 85 upper and I think 40 or 45 for lawn.

    Fair enough - Blossom was rumored in the rumors thread. It's the 2nd most random

    Meadow Brook would have been the perfect venue, but I'm just happy we get a show. Praying I can find some lower Pavilion for this. Don't want to be stuck anywhere near the lawn.

    Re: OFFICIAL D+T @ DTE Thread (Pine Knob)

    I'm curious on the turnout for this. Are people really gonna want to pay for lawn for these two guys playing acoustic? Obviously some will but just wonder if the lawn will only be half full. Didn't think there would be, but glad no ga pit.

    Re: OFFICIAL D+T @ DTE Thread (Pine Knob)

    Cool that Michigan gets a show (especially considering no West Coast) but I'm really surprised this isn't at Meadowbrook or Freedom Hill. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make this one, yet. I'm certainly not doing lawn for D&T and $100 (after fees) is a tough pill to swallow for upper pavilion. Hopefully there are decent lowers for the public on sale.

    I agree, I don't see DTE being anywhere close to sold out for the show. Venue is way too big for D+T.

    I'm guessing people will be very confused when it is just D+T all night long. In fact, I just spoke to a co worker and he said so they start it off and the rest of the band comes out later to play electric, lol.

    Re: OFFICIAL D+T @ DTE Thread (Pine Knob)

    If they had it at Pine Knob, they are obviously expecting a full show. I'm sure PAV will be completely sold out, and I think the lawn might even be pretty close to full as well. I'm sure if need be the local radio stations will give a bunch of stuff away, deals online, etc. I just can't imagine that if they wanted it at Pine Knob they didn't think it would sell at the very least more than the capacity of the next biggest venue, Meadowbrook. Freedom Hill would have been incredible, but tickets would have been even more impossible to get. I'm going to try for premium tickets I guess... It will suck if you aren't anywhere but the first 10-20 rows.

    Re: OFFICIAL D+T @ DTE Thread (Pine Knob)

    I think people will hear Dave Matthews and buy up lawn tickets.

    Normal tailgating/night out/ summer tradition.

    Then be surprised what actually happens (as others said)

    Or people will be excited it's the first D+T shows in Michigan and 15 years and want to go because it's a bucket list item....

    I don't see it selling out, however I do see a nice crowd out on the lawn, with a good amount of walk up sales if it's a beautiful day.

    Looks like there's no pit. Guess I'm not surprised because it's a D&T show. Although I didn't think about it when I went to go reserve tickets, because I am so used to pits. Kind of sucks because significantly less chance of getting pit tickets - probably cuts the number of tickets in the pit by 1/4 to go with assigned seating.

    I would guess the entire pit area of seats will be premium tickets

    There's no way 100% of the pit tickets go to the fan club.

    Let me rephrase.

    The seats in what would normally be the pit will be premium tickets and LN VIP or season ticket holders.

    If those tickets were available through the public on sale, the warehouse wouldn't be able to sell premium tickets.

    Some could be held back for the band/promoter etc and would be released the week of the show.

    But I highly doubt anyone is pulling seats in the front section in the public onsale. You're lucky to find lowers on the onsale.

    When I did VIP last year at Blossom, I was shocked to see so many Live Nation VIP vs Warehouse VIP ticket holders! When did that start happening and how did people obtain the Live Nation VIP tickets? Just curious!

    So just to confirm...

    Consider this order for selection in the regular event (any level prior to Gen Adm Lawn $40.50) if not selected for the Premium Ticket Package.]\

    clicking that means if you get denied for VIP you can still be confirmed for other SEATS but NOT Lawn. ? I want to be considered for SEATS only. So that should be checked, right?

    You contact a live nation vip rep. I know lots of people that purchase LN VIP for gorge and alpine.
