    Not too many dates listed yet....

    Got tix for Scranton.

    Hoping more shows added in July.

    Also his Live At Ronnie Scott's DVD is set to be released March 31st.

    Blu-Ray version has a 7 track set with the Big Town Playboys not on the standard DVD.

    Do you work for Ticketmaster? You just made me buy two Boston tickets, Gen Adm on the floor. I'll be sure to get as close as I can so I can hear that Marshall from the stage and see the five different ways he has invented for using his right hand on the guitar!

    I hate to hijack your thread, but...

    Anyone else hate doing business with Ticketmaster? Their website sucks. I followed the link from the OP, got me to the show, kind of, then try to find tix???? If it's sold out, tell me don't lead me to a dead link.

    Is it just me or do they never have tickets available, but are happy to refer you to their sister company that will scalp those same unavailable tickets for 2-4x face value.

    Then, of course there is the ever present, yet completely ridiculous "handling charge"....?????!!!!

    Thanks for letting me vent. It's been a long day.

    Nope-I just ran into the same nonsense when trying to get tickets for a recent Derek Trucks show in Cincinnati,madvek.Ticketmaster runs one of the biggest rackets going these days,IMHO.

    Think I read that they're going through an anti-trust investigation for pulling that same crap on the Bruce tickets when they went on sale...he was pretty upset about it according to the article. I bought tickets to John Prine through them a couple of weeks ago and have to say the surcharges have gotten a little out of hand...they might as well just hold a gun to your head.

    t'master are crooks, plain & simple... I got booted from the Springsteen page after selecting DC tickets and sh*tcanned to their T'master-owned scalper page.

    They're scum like the wall st. lowlifes and should be hauled before Congress just the same ... clear monopoly and anticompetitive conduct

    Anyone else noticing the wide difference in prices depending on the show?
    Some places you can get tickets for $38 or $45, the Park West Chicago tix are $90!!!!!!

    I passed on tix for the NYC show when i found out they were $66....

    He was here in Detroit a few years ago and I had to miss him because I allready had tickets for Roger Waters. Hope he comes back soon or I might have to run out to Cleveland for that show.

    If only hauling crooks before congress produced something more than 5 minutes of embarrassment....

    I caught the Chi Town prices as well. By the time you figure in the fees, you're looking at 200$ + for a general admission show for two people. That's a bit rough.

    Ticketshyster, I hate so much dealing with them. Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday for Chicago Park West. I was online at 10 sharp....nothing available. I tried for an hour and nothing. Finally called them and they said it was sold out.

    I've stood before at a concert years back right in front of JB right at his pedalboard obviously with earplugs seeing the master firsthand!

    The mix in Detroit was very poor. Very sub bass heavy. Hard to hear Jeffs guitar. Pino had left to tour with the Who. Drove all the way from Cleveland and it was disappointing. Saw him earlier that year at the HOB Vegas with Pino on bass Vinnie and Jason and it was unbelievable.

    But... Cleveland HOB 4/15 and I just scored a pair of tix on Ticketmaster!! Thanks for the heads up, OP. You should make the drive to Cleveland...the HOB here is a great place to see a show. Much better than Detroit Opera house. Standing general admission and you will be 5 feet from Jeff..easy to get close to stage... Great house sound system (Midas etc.)
