Do they still have ducks walking the red carpet at the Peabody?

Yup!
Why a duck?

They have a fountain in the lobby that ducks swim in at certain parts of the day.

They have this big ceremony where the ducks ride down the elevator (there's a cage on the roof), walk through the lobby, and jump into the fountain (and vice versa at the end of the day).

I think it all started decades ago when some hunters put their duck decoys in the fountain and everyone got a kick out of it.

BV, if you can arrange it....layover in Louisville, KY and drive 2.5 hrs to Nashville. Come to Louisville and sip a little bourbon with me.

How do those of you getting tickets from scalpers outside the stadium get around the fact that they could just be selling multiples of the same ticket print out? Do you make them walk you into the stadium? Thanks.

Walk to the gate no matter what type of ticket....that's the only way to 100% guarantee it is legit.

even "hard tickets" can be faked (happened to a buddy of mine at the Dead back in like 1991 - well before internet and high-quality/tech printers).

I'd even bet somebody has figured out how to "fake" digital tix that can be transferred to your phone.

Points are:

a) Never underestimate the power & determination of scumbags to rip you off (see: Ticketmaster).

b) Make the scalper go to the door w/ you (and be sure (s)he goes all the way up to the gate, not the old "I'll just wait back here" move)...a nice scalper will be happy to do it and should even smile and wave once you get in!!

In Germany 2017/18 it was officially 1275 EUR: the Pit-Ticket + some Merchandise (= StartMeUp-VIP-Package) - [iorr.org] - [web.archive.org] .

Ticketmaster UK had in 2018 also dynamic pricing: [iorr.org] - (Pit = £740 -> 940 US$).

Yeah, didn’t Germany also have, if I remember right, a high number of Lucky Dips that became pit tix, since fewer people bought the high-price pits?

I know in the States, on zip code, each venue seemed to have more or less LDs becoming pits, depending on the audience buying patterns. I dunno, these are just off the top perceptions. I could be wrong.

Yep, many LD became pit in Berlin last year (I think more than 100).

Its keeping them there once you start to try and get in that would be the kicker right? e.g. as soon as you go to scan they could be gone? Or are u saying hold on to the cash until you get scanned?

If a scalper at the venue won't take paypal('Goods and Services' not 'Friends and Family') I wouldn't bother.

If they are legit they have nothing to worry about and it gives the buyer some protection. Add in a few bucks to cover their fees and then even if they leave you have recourse if anything goes south.

If the Stones played the Royal Albert Hall I would be fine with the suite but at a stadium not a chance.

I was in Nashville three days ago for The Who. Nashville is anything but "smallish" anymore. It is absolutely exploding downtown. But, if you get a downtown hotel you can keep yourself fully entertained with musical history and bars and restaurants within walking distance. Any other attractions you might consider are a short drive away.

I was there the same night for the Hives, imagine my delight when both shows let out at the same time . . . eye rolling smiley

Nashville is definitely growing, but the downtown area is still very walkable, compared to some large cities. Downtown hotel prices are getting increasingly insane, unfortunately, but it's still a wonderful city to spend a few days in.

I love the Hives!

Sucks, but otherwise, you take your chances.

Scan - Beep - Hand Over Cash.

Arrive early...lines/crowds make the process more annoying for all parties involved.

good luck!

I saw them twice opening for the Stones in Stockholm '03 at the Globen and Stadion - up there with my favorite openers.
They're playing down at the small Fox theater in Pomona next Tuesday and I really want to go!!!

Well, for Amsterdam i first had a GA ticket. Then suddenly i read a post on IORR that PIT prices had dropped for Amsterdam. This was about one week for the gig. E 250 was a very good price. I could sell my GA ticket to a fan on IORR.
Also for Arnhem, PIT prices dropped about 2 weeks for the gig.

For Southampton i bought a PIT ticket immediately, even though it was expensive. i did not want to take chances there.

So, you could take a chance and wait. But,, prices might not drop, and you will miss a chance to get a ticket.
Hard to give advice, but i wish everyone good luck.

Do keep in mind though that the regular pit price of Amsterdam was face value 235 euro,quite a big difference with the US pricing of USD 500.

Well not sure of the currency exchange but I am seeing the "all in" price of 570 for a pit face value ticket.

For some reason, fees seem to be treated as an optional extra here!
