Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

Ok, so the only way I can go this tour is if I can get Pit tickets at face value... (loooong back story, it is what it is). So, I've never tried for Pit tickets before because I didn't think I would like it. But having gotten a free upgrade N1 WPB thanks to VW, I realize now that it's the only way to go. And apparently the only way my husband will now agree to go. Anyway... I am not a WH member (nor do I plan to be)... how hard is it going to be to get pit tickets for ATL? I see the tix go on sale 10/19 or 10/26 depending on dates. Does that mean I pretty much need to be online at 12:01am 10/19?

It's a really nice venue. It has hosted many big names and I would guess they would go with general admission floor.

Much smaller than Philips by about 6K.

I would liken the size difference to the same between Lakewood and Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.

Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

Getting out after a show is the worst part about Gwinnett in my opinion. The parking itself is nice because (I believe) it's free and there are plenty of spaces in the lots and deck, but leaving the show can take a LONG time for whatever reason. Both of the shows I've seen there were good-sized crowds (Elton John and Foo Fighters), and I imagine this show will be no different.

But the venue is in a nice part of town, is relatively easy to access from the highway, and has great acoustics (at least from the floor, I've not sat in the bowl before). This show will be exactly 10 years to the date after my first DMB show, and I live in Metro Atlanta, so I can't imagine not going.

Smaller, more intimate than Philips. Better acoustics. Nicer part of town, but traffic getting out is tough. Agree with all of the posts above. Really looking forward to it.

Went to Atlanta in fall 2010. Got to meet and hang out with Justin aka BeaufordBuddy. Great times. Planned to go this year as well. Unfortunately being so close to Christmas and just married into a large family money will just be too tight. Cant wait for next summer.

Oh snap, you're right; 10 years since 12/11/02 at Philips. That was my 2nd show!

I didn't see this venue coming. Only times I've been there were an Incubus concert way back in like '04ish, and then my future brother-in-law's high school graduation about 4 years ago

But since I'm in Athens I do like that it's a significantly shorter drive for me than Atlanta!

I thought 85 plus the 13 was what the GA floor was going to run.

Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

Kinda pissed that this would end up in the middle of finals week, but lucky for me, I have no finals the day of nor the day after. Will suck however, that most people I know will probably not be able to make it due to exams. It's also nearly a 4 hour drive which is kinda lame as well

decisions, decisions...

I'm with you. I go to UF and have no Finals, but most of my DMB buddies do have Finals this day and I am contemplating the 6 hour drive from Gainesville. ...

Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

What are the chances I can drive up and scalp a pair of decent tickets for about $20/each? Is there a high demand for this show? I went on TM and it isn;t sold out, but I refuse to pay $80/each for upper-bowl tickets lol. I live in Gainesville, FL so it would be a long drive to take a chance, but in 2010 at Phillips Center in ATL, scalpers were practically handing tickets out. They couldn't get rid of them. Any advice is welcomed! Thanks.

Gonna try for pit tickets, doubt I'll get them without being a WH member or having a citi card. But hopefully someone on here can help me out if I can't get any. Worked at Phillips 2010.

Just so everyone knows: there is NO "check the box" option for WH tickets, per some info from the Fall tour thread. Currently on the fence, debating between WH and Citi presale.

As of right now, Gwinnett is the only venue on the band site without an opener named - which do you favor? Jimmy Cliff or The Lumineers?

I'm not familiar with Jimmy Cliff, but I REALLY hope it is the The Lumineers. They are one of my favorite bands right now.
