    I went on Ticketmaster thinking you could buy more than one ticket at a time (4 ticket limit), you could only buy 1 ticket at at time!! If you’re bringing someone else that person would be seated somewhere else! I’m bringing my f*ckin mother so hell no she’s not sitting somewhere else!

    I got the tickets (2 together) but I’m pissed because the sh*t was ridiculous!!

    Is there a dress code at any of the venues or can I wear jeans, tennis, t shirt and ball cap? Yeah… It’s an all day (night) affair, I want to be comfortable.

    So will LotusFlow3r.com have tix to all 3 shows on Tues.?? Or is the best bet to just go thru ticketmaster on Sun.??

    An evening like this requies a strategy–buy ticket; get rest; wear comfy shoes; bring bottled water; pace yourself; park close to venue; party all night long! 😉

    Where is the 177.00 coming from? All I see is the 77.00 price for the Conga Room listing.

    I now accept that I can’t make these gigs and for that I’m thankful…at least I don’t have the stress of trying to get my hands on tickets.
    I’ll look forward to the reviews and those that go have a beautiful night x

    Just called Conga and they said they would process my order at 12 noon on Sunday but call on Sunday to make sure……..very strange……….can I trust them???? I will keep my fingers crossed

  • howardbear
    Posted at 18:16h, 20 March

    That’s strange because they took my credit card info at about 11:30 AM and said that I could pick up the tickets after Sunday at noon

    If the above is true, conga is kinda shady. They raised the prices on the benefit show last minute as well.

    Dayum.

    Prince concert in LA, I’m just curious. Will these venues stick my handicapped ass way back in the last row of each section like they do in my Prince concerts I’ve been to at the Oakdale in Connecticut, Madsion Square Garden (the arena formerly known as the greatest in the world), Continental Arena was the only great seat I had for Prince, but only because the venue had been sued by the disabled for good reason! I don’t even expect to get one ticket, and I’m sure it’ll be in the nosebleeds, so I don’t believe Prince’s camp when they will blame it on the promoter, the promoter in turn blames it on the venue, the artist assumes no responsibility for this discrimination, it’s all a money scam so I’m just gonna go to LA to buy my medical marijuana instead of a Prince concert! 90 minutes? He played 3 hours at the Garden with the Revolution in ’86 for 25 dollars, this makes me sick, I ain’t even buyin’ his new album! Whenever any of you break your neck, god forbid, you’ll know how I feel, and I been a Prince fan since ’79, so it hurts twice as bad.
