Vancouver's music scene is pretty dismal. Many live club venues have either closed permanently (Media Club, Dover Arms) or have closed then reopened as lame shadows of themselves (Yale, Railway Club) or are on the imminent chopping block (Fairview, Arts Club). All that's left are mostly dive bars near skid row (Pub 340, Ivanhoe, LanaLou's).

There ARE some smaller former movie theatre type venues that host many out of town bands like The Imperial, The Rickshaw, The Fox, and (my fave) The Rio in East Van, but for local bands, it's slim pickings.

I saw Andrew Loog Oldham introduce Charlie is My Darling, a bootleg of the movie (before it's official release) at the Rio. Very cool.

Dude I saw that too! Got him to sign one of my albums.

I had a really bad cold, took a neo citran and went anyway. Glad I did! I shoulda got him to sign an album, never thought of that. Which album?

Got him to sign Out of Our Heads. M

On a totally different note, man I'm so excited, my partner's dad just phoned me a short while ago and told me to get the best possible tickets I could procure and gave me his Amex info. He said it's my birthday present. Damn not even my own parents like me this much. Hoping to score pit in the Amex presale.

Good luck and happy birthday! My bday is today!

happy birthday fellow aquarian!

smileys with beer

Haha thanks but my birthday is in April, it'll be my 31st. I'm an Aries. I guess my partner's dad is thinking ahead. I think he just wants pit tix and knows I'm the most likely person to procure those for him. Whatever the reason, best gift ever.

I told my partner of 5 years if he doesn't want his dad to show him up in the gift giving department, he could always propose at a Stones show...hey, a girl can dream....

At the opener in Chicago last year, kid asked me if I could take a pic of him and his girl.
Then he whispered to me to make it a video as he was going to propose.
Was great!! I think she might still be crying cool smiley

I'm a music teacher, I put on a listening activity for my students and told them nobody is allowed to talk to me for 10 minutes. Do you think they have the courtesy to follow that? NO. All of them fail. I said GOOD DAY CHILDREN.

I'm actually in Halifax and looking at the Detroit show but can you tell me how you access the link for the LD's. I know it's only available via rollingstones.com but does it appear right at the start of the onsale?
Any advice is mucho appreciated.

I'm in, but too much money...
Pit package only. Nice rip off again.
What is face value for pit? 600 CA$?

Got through after about 15 minutes. Ended up getting tickets 4 rows up in the upper bowl, about $250 each. Lower bowl were $450. Figured I'll save a couple hundred and sit a bit higher up. Logged in again to check what was left for Amex and most are gone now, couple single seats in the upper bowl but still some 2,3 4 in a row in the lower bowl. I'm sure all Amex presales will be sold out soon.

It does.
Sometimes they lag a minute or three.. but typically right when the general sale starts. And yes, enter from their website, not reg waiting room, takes you to different waiting room and a dedicated Lucky Dip TM page.

My laptop won't let me log out of the browser so i can get tix on my phone. I sent such an angry email to my principal saying my piece of crap technology caused me to miss out on tix and i've been asking for months for a new one since i'm the only teacher on staff who didn't get one and now i'm really upset(he knows what the Stones mean to me)

He ran down to my room to apologize and phoned the district and started laying into them and i have a new laptop finally coming next week LOL my principal has never seen me angry so he was scared. Didn't get tix but i got a new laptop!

Cheapest seats I saw were just over $70. All the low priced ones seem to be gone. Still lots of opportunity through the stadium at $400+.

Got PIT 2 Keith's side at face value, was much easier to get than San Diego, was surprised there were both pits available, Had to have my credit card person on the phone to make sure it went through. Probably too many failed dings on the San Diego venue. We are really looking forward to Vancouver! Will try for Lucky Dips in San Diego.

a good friend took my advice & got front row of upper deck. good for the spectacle & more reasonably priced. i was about even with the small stage in seattle upstairs & it was great. also, not many going for those on presale so relatively easy to get.

I kept getting error messages because I would forget to click US instead of Canada for ticket delivery, and then I had to have my credit card on the phone to make the charge go through.

I managed to get a GA standing ticket yesterday, but when I randomly checked later on there were cheaper (Still nearly $600! eye popping smiley) pit tickets that weren't available when I first looked, which I would've preferred. I'm not from Canada, but does anyone know if it'll be possible to sell my ticket easily further down the line? Can I resell it through Ticketmaster? I am tempted to try and see if I can get a pit ticket instead of using my GA ticket, which I'd want to sell if I got a pit ticket.
