    Lets give the WH a break here, they have only been doing this for 22 years, and its not like there are a bunch of examples out there of how to run a smooth fan club.

    i emailed warehouse for clarification as well, hopefully we can get a solid answer out of them, cuz aint no way I'm paying 350 a ticket unless it comes with a meet and greet and open bar.

    ok just got CLEAR confirmation. It's as we expected...

    "The ticket system flow order is the same as it is displayed on your Ticket Request page. For Durant >

    RSRVD - 1st
    PIT - 2nd
    If you select PIT as your first preference, our system will not try for RSRVD."


    whew.

    I put in a request for Pit. If they give me reserved and charge me $700 they will be hearing from and I will make them cancel the order and take them back.

    It clearly states: "Select your preferred ticket level in the dropdown below. If not selected for your first preference, you will then be considered for all levels that follow."

    The way they have this set up is Reserved and then Pit follows. If I select Pit and am declined Reserved does not follow that. This is the same thing as if I picked Lawn for Gorge. If I am declined for lawn they cannot then up charge me and put me in 205 at the higher price level that I didn't agree to pay for.

    Right now your options according to how they have set this up are:

    -Pick Reserved and if you are not approved for Reserved you could get approved for Pit.
    -Pick Reserved and then opt-out if you do not want standing only.
    -Pick Pit and you are not eligible for Reserved since you picked a lower price level.

    yes via email, and it makes perfect sense. they even broke it down and explained the order of tiers.

    the other email must have been someone stupid who didn't specifically look at the durant shows, since they ARE different than basically every other show, ever.

    The new motto for this thread seems to be working. Looks like except for the Gorge thread, this thread has the most views for the 2020 tour.

    I guess I didn't realize how big the "pit" is.

    hard to get a judge when you're there for a show and it's all seats...

    ...and especially when you didn't think you'd need to worry about how big the pit would be for a DAVE MATTHEWS BAND CONCERT somehow happening there.

    That first row of $350 seats sure looks like you're gonna have a disappointing view of pit asses.

    Would selecting 1 pit ticket increase my chances of confirmation over selecting 2 pit tickets?

    This whole thing has thrown me for a loop. As an Okie and a huge DMB fan the thought of a two night stand in my state initially had me all jazzed. But as I've looked deeper, it might just make more sense to find another show or two this year. I've gone to Denver the past two years and my wife and I loved it. If they were doing that again, it would actually be FAR cheaper for us to do those two shows even with airfare, etc. then it will be to do the two OK shows. And for me, the biggest issue is that Durant is almost a 3 hour drive from OKC, so it's not really a down and back type of deal. Then, once you are in Durant, you are absolutely in the middle of nowhere. The casino is a passable way to kill a few hours for sure, but it's not exactly the greatest location to try and make a weekend out of it. Looking closely, it's basically like deciding to take your vacation budget and use a nice chunk of it..... in Durant. Eh, not so sure about this.

    if going to the Durant shows wipes your vacation budget it's an easy decision IMO. no way.

    So Iíll bring this back up closer to the Durant shows but we might need a group effort to call Durant casino hotel to protest they keep their resort-style pool open through the show weekend. In past they have closed their pool down for season on the Tuesday after Labor Day which of course is before DMB weekend. Iíve been to their pool several times and must say itís pretty impressive for Durant, OK. Theyíve got a good separate adult pool with swim-up bar (but we be bringing drinks down from room), cabanas, etc. Even got palm trees around pool area to block view of cow pastures surrounding hotel. As people have mentioned, there is not much to do in/around Durant between shows so really hoping they extend their pool season. Letís team up on hotel management say mid-August!

    I'm really debating here... We are definitely doing the Gorge again this year which is only 2 1/2 weeks before this. I currently have order requests in since this show is only an hour away from our house but with the shows being so close together and having just gone to Gorge, is this really worth it?

    Also, doing this show means we are skipping Lumineers with Gregory Allen Isakov in Austin. I'm getting more and more tempted to just go to the Lumineeers and skip Choctaw. Opinions?
