Re: *** Official Oklahoma 2020 ***

The real question in my mind is, does the band treat this like a true two night stand and not do repeats OR do they think that it is so small and expensive not many people will come for both nights and so they will repeat 8-12 songs.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing.

    I hope the reserved seating doesn't sell out and the casino has to eat a lot of the tickets/there are empty seats (I know it won't happen, but it would show the band and management not to do this type of show with that ticket price).

    Me either. Since the WH still shows that as the price, i assume that is correct and wasn't an error. insane.

    for $1600 (for 2) for a 2 night stay (plus $350 for crappy hotel), my wife and I might as well do Gorge or Mexico.

    Hopefully the do a fall tour and do OKC again or atleast go back to Dallas/Houston. If not, Arkansas will be my only show this year.

    I think everyone should email the warehouse (whtix@davematthewsband.com) inquiring about the "error in pricing" on the reserved seating, and confirm that it will be fixed before confirmations are up. I just sent my email.

    So you can opt out of $129 Pit, but if you select $129 pit and donít get it, you have to pay for the $350 reserved? How does that make any sense, shouldnít you be able to opt out of reserved?

    I think if you pick PIT, you wont get reserved since it is more expense.

    I read it as if you pick reserved, you may get PIT unless you opt out. If you pick PIT, that is your only option, and will get nothing if declined from PIT.

    Re: *** Official Oklahoma 2020 ***

    If you can’t opt out of reserved and pick pit, wouldn’t they just give you reserved if you don’t get pit? Seems a very Warehouse thing to do

    To me thats like you requesting lawn (the cheapest ticket) and them not giving you lawn but giving you reserved or pit (more expensive ticket).

    How did it work for Vegas? The reserved seats were more expensive there as well. If you didn't get pit, did they give you more expensive reserved seats?

    I think technically here pit is the "lower tier", so if you start with that, they won't move you "up" to the $349 seats.

    either way, fuck them. seriously. $349 for a ticket. I'm insulted.

    Guys, you can request pit only and only be selected for pit or nothing. They won't stick with the $350 uppers if you don't want them.

    I mean...$150 for a pit that small is kind of tempting. I havent been to any boyd-less shows yet but the idea of there only being 3000 people there is intriguing.

    Based on the picture on the last page, the pit doesn't look very small. 13 rows of chairs in the center section, so a little bigger than the Dallas pit.

    it's not the width/size of smirnoff though.

    I was there for turnpike last spring (RIP), but the pit was seated for that show.

    it's pretty big, just not smirnoff big.

    This pit will feel tiny compared to any amphitheater pit (save for Milwaukee).

    You will not get stuck with reserved seats if you select the Pit option on WH.

    I haven't missed a Texas show since 2002, and I'm taking a pass on this one (yeah, I know it's not Texas, but it's really what they're doing instead of Dallas-Houston) - agree completely, for the money I can do the Gorge, and that's exactly what I'm doing - booked flights last night.

    Warehouse responded to me:

    "The pricing for Durant, OK events is correct."


    that's it.

    So funny. Cosmo was normal pricing yet the same capacity really (Also they could have charged the $350 because Vegas, but didn't.)

    I know this is get laughed at but I'm actually kind of interested. Is this area real bad? Are there decent areas to stay nearby? I did a quick AirBnb look and it looked like there were affordable Lake Houses - is that a thing in this area?

    3K people at a casino sounds pretty fun, IMO.

    It's the middle of nowhere rural Oklahoma. The only draw of this place is the Casino. If you do go, just stay at the casino.

    I'm holding out for a Dallas show around ACL if that happens. I can't do pit with the group I want to go with this year and there is no way I'm paying $350 for tickets.
