I'm not encouragong anyone to buy from a reseller, but tickets for this show were $295 with fees and there are some on Stubhub for $315 right now.

$20 over what you would have paid if you would have gotten them on the regular sale today. (And without the hassle).

Perhaps surprisingly this will be the first time they've played a proper show on NYE since 1995, and that was just an afternoon festival slot in Australia. They did an MTV special in 2003 but that was just playing a couple of songs in the studio, they've never done a full show over midnight before.

Be very interesting to see what they play, could get very loose if they go on for a long time after midnight!

Always find new years over rated and boring. This would be a dream to go to this. Very lucky and well jealous to anyone that is going to this. Yeah a Stream would be nice, instead of the rubbish we have to put up with on tv in the UK

You realise it'd be 8am in the UK? Are you gonna be getting up at that time on New Years day?

It is sponsored by CBS though, so there is a small chance it'll be broadcast in some way, probably radio is the most likely.

Yeah, someone should get on that.

On another note, I just remembered what happened the last time they played a small Vegas show. Gimme Stitches.

My flight is over $650. Hotels are ridiculous because it's NYE. Tickets to the show were $300. Yup. This will cost a couple grand.

So are you joining us?

What?! Keep your phone in your pocket and enjoy the show! Besides, no offense, but it's annoying to others (or maybe just me ).
