    Lumineers play Masquerade 10/19 so probably will announce right after that. They had to move from indoors to outdoors because it sold out so fast. Outdoors is not sold out yet which would explain delayed announcement.

    Of course, that is only one theory and we will probably get a completely different opener. But I am hoping for Lumineers.

    Do they tow?

    Praying you're correct. Everyone has always discouraged me from giving my money to the warehouse and with no Citi card i was afraid i'd be SOL. After being on the floor in Phillips 2 years ago, that's the only way I wanna see DMB indoors.

    Have never been towed so far. I'll make a run up there in the next week or so to check it out and see if there are any towing signs posted. I think the mexican place is open until at least 11ish, so you'd think you'd be fine parking in front of it.

    Benefit of Warehouse GA Floor, if you want to be as close as possible, there may be early entrance for Warehouse tickets.

    Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

    I live in Dunwoody (15 miles away) and work downtown, so just booked the Holiday Inn Gwinnett Place as it's less than a 1/4 mile walk to the venue (closer than some of the parking spaces). Don't want to deal with driving home after the show. Wife and I carpool so we'll easily get to the venue after work in the Peach Lane (I guess carpooling doesn't even help anymore). And then just head into town in the morning.

    Thanks man - let us know. It was a pain leaving there for a college hoops game last year. I would definitely try an alternative.

    Have you ever tried parking at the north end near Sugarloaf? - it looks like there's an escape route. I guess the problem there is the parking attendants not letting you go there if you arrive early.

    Are there any bars or anything close by and what's the tailgate situation? Just curious what pre-show activities to look forward to.

    Doing reserved 1 for all shows.

    The last thing I want is to end up on the floor and have people pushing through because "bro, my friend is right up there - see that dude in the DMB shirt? That's my friend". Yeah, I'm good on all that.

    Do Warehouse members still get on the floor earlier? If so, then I might do GA. Still might just try for some nice seats though.

    My wife will be 2 weeks away from her delivery date for the show, so seats are the only option for us. Just requested them. I will also be trying for some through ticketmaster, so I will most likely end up with an extra pair to sell for anyone interested.

    Agreed. Maybe it's me getting older, but I just don't feel like dealing with people like that. If there was a smaller "pit" in a sense, where I could park myself against the back rail but still be close, then I'd consider it. Fighting the entire floor on the other hand, not an option.

    Stubhub is really just a bulletin board, like eBay, where anyone can list any tickets (no need to prove you really have them) for any amount. So it's lots of speculators now who are confident they'll have tickets later and would like to "presale" them now before they even have them...get paid now and then buy the tickets later

    Reserved 1 for me. Have been in the pit for a few shows, and while being up there is cool...I hated being pushed and it always being packed by everyone passing wristbands to their friends. Plus, you have somewhere to rest your legs during the pre-concert/opener, and you can go to the restroom and not loose your spot.

    Gwinnett has season ticket holders just like any other venue so those people already bought their tickets and have them for sale.

    Don't even think about buying your tickets from that horrible place.

    Re: ** Duluth, GA 2012 **

    Requested 2 GA floor tickets.

    Looking forward to this and glad they're coming through again. Didn't have a great time at the Lakewood show this year as I was stuck in the lawn and had a hard time getting away from annoying people despite moving several times. Was a pretty weak setlist too. I'm stoked to see more of the AFTW songs live, so I know this will be a blast!

    Would have preferred Phillps though since I live and work in the city, can can walk to Phillips from my office.

    The general consensus is yes, but I haven't seen anything definitive. Plus seat confirmations won't be out for a while after requests are filled. The only info that we'll have is what price level we were confirmed for, no section info.

    Confirmations will say Floor or Reserve

    My bad; my interpretation was that there won't be any specific section/seat info when confirmations are posted, just the F/R1-3, and the charges.
