Default Chicago Announced

Foo announces Cubby Bear show tomorrow on sale . Boo!!! Make it first come first serve unannounced especially for the other ones coming up. Next one like this you can't sell tickets on their venue site. Even for this venue in Chicago the web server is going to crash. First come first serve for the next surprise show after Chicago.

No matter how they do it, it's going to be down to luck. There could certainly never be a true 'first come first serve' system when thousands will inevitably log on at the same time.

Fitting that the location of Dave's first concert should be the place to kick off the touring/promotion for an album that focuses on a cities musical history.

The venue site thru ticketweb can't handle the volume. I got thru for green day via ticketweb in 2011 for the Halloween show and that On sale the show was announced within an hour.

It's gonna be broadcast live though, so at least people who don't get tickets can still watch.

The UK shows were announced as they went on sale and people still struggled to get tickets. It's going to be hard no matter how they do it.

The Stones played at the Double Door in the 90s, (a 400 person venue) before the common use of the internet, and they announced it on the radio. If you were close to the venue, then that was the luck. They put a wristband on you that they put your name on after you gave them ID. The next day when you returned, your unmolested wristband and ID were required to get in.

If it could be a spontaneous announcement by the Stones before the real internet age, then I think it can be done nowadays.

Oh well... I am expecting zero tickets.

Well, it is what it is. It's just a shame to see negativity about this instead of excitement. If you get a ticket, you get a ticket and enjoy it. If you don't, unlucky, but you can watch it online.

So if they continue to do this in each city, we should look out for a NYC date on December 5th.

I went to that Green Day show too. I think it took like an hour to actually secure the tickets on ticketweb. The site was just dead.

I'm just assuming it's going to be in the same order as the album, but I'm not sure if we have confirmation on that yet.

That's if it follows the track listing and everything currently suggests it does.
