I don't recall it being such a challenge to pull presale tickets for the "Evening with" show at the Orpheum a few years back... Maybe there was a smaller allotment of tickets this time around. 

Nor was it so hard to pull presale tix for the Wang show, their last in Boston.  I got a pair first row behind the pit.

I saw them at Agannis in 2005 and it did suck as a venue. 

My least enjoyable Wilco show ever. 

I was there, too, and it was not a top Wilco show for me either. Jeff chastised the crowd at one point for getting up from their seats (to go to the bathroom or whatever) while the band was playing and singing their pretty poems. I felt like the audience-band connection was lost in the larger arena. Maybe their pretty poems (I remember Muzzle of Bees was one that night) do not translate to 7,000 seat arenas.

 

It was also the only time I have seen MMJ, who opened that show.

Remember that post by Diane/Wilco Me/Magnetized that was a rant from some guy, a music industry insider who said Wilco would never make any new fans? Or something to the effect that if you weren't already a Wilco fan, it wasn't going to happen? I think that guy was dead wrong. Great for the band! Sucky for anyone trying to get tickets.

The jig is up.

That was Bob Lefsetz. And I'm sorry, Carrie. It sounds like you're not having luck so far. Come to Norfolk! I'll pick you up tickets tomorrow morning at the box office. I'll even put you up in my messy apartment.

Yes, sadly, no luck for DC. Will try again tomorrow. Today I was thinking about how you wrote that you were going to buy a whole bunch of Norfolk tickets for whoever may want them, and thinking how freaking awesome that is. Seriously, who does that?! That is just so nice. I was going to try to make a surgical strike of the DC show-- since it's on a Sunday night and I could make it happen without really missing work. Would love to make it a two-fer if I can swing it. I'll be in touch, and thank you!

Never had a problem with a presale for Wilco. I think that the problem was clearly on their end thus the apology email from the band. Will try again today....

I think I just got tix on the floor for both nights in Atlanta. I think my fandom has officially gotten out of hand, as I now have to purchase airfare, arrange to stay with a friend in the ATL, and shuffle my work schedule.

So excited - got my Portland, ME tickets no problem this morning - sort of a trip down memory lane as the first time I ever saw Wilco was at the State back in '02 - nice to see the full band coming back (last time in Maine was '09) although Jeff solo and Tweedy (the band) have been here since...  HAPPY
