You asked for the latest...
OK kidz, here follows that Area: 2 ticket information we promised you in the story we posted earlier today. BowieNet will have a ticket allocation for all of the dates on the tour, and this is how it'll work.
Many of you have noticed that MTV2, as the official sponsor of this event, will be first to offer a pre-sale on their site starting tomorrow morning. There is no reason why you shouldn't get your tickets via the MTV2 route if you feel so compelled. There will, in fact, be other pre-sale opportunities, including Front of the Line, for example, but if you're unsuccessful via these routes, please understand that this FRIDAY May 3rd is the first of three BOWIENET pre-sale days.
Tickets for the twelve shows that make up the tour will be made available to BowieNetters over each of the three BowieNet pre-sale days, and this Friday's pre-sale will concern itself with the following four shows. The pre-sale will last from 10:00am to 6:00pm for the local time of each of the venues. Please note the amount of tickets available per person:
JULY 31st - Holmdel, New Jersey - PNC Bank Center - 6 tickets per household
AUGUST 3rd - Boston, MA - Tweeter Center - 12 tickets per household
AUGUST 5th - Toronto, Canada - Molson Ampitheater - 12 tickets per household
AUGUST 6th - Detroit, Michigan - DTE Energy Music Center - 12 tickets per household
Tickets for these four dates will be available to BowieNetters in this Friday's BowieNet pre-sale only, and BowieNet access to these four shows will only last for that day. On Friday BowieNet will provide a link to Ticketmaster along with a password to access BowieNet pre-sells for these four shows only.
The tickets allocated specifically to BowieNet members are of equal quality (seating position) and quantity to the other pre-sale offers. Although other offers may get to go first, there is no disadvantage to BowieNet members. In fact, this is where you BowieNet Members have a distinct advantage, because you will not be competing with the general public for our allocation. These are first come, first serve, so let's see if you can break the Ticketmaster system on Friday morning at 10:00am sharp. };-)
Apart from the pre-sales that are being offered elsewhere, these shows will be available to BowieNet Members online BEFORE they are made available to the public. Since we are offering these tickets before they are on sale to the general public, our allocation is large enough for us to know that we will NOT sell out of tickets. We will be making several differently priced ticket types available at Ticketmaster, so everyone should be able to get what they are looking for.
The eight remaining shows will be made available via BowieNet pre-sales on Tuesday, May 7th and Wednesday, May 8th. However, it should be noted that the MTV2 pre-sale that starts tomorrow is for all twelve of the shows and runs Wednesday and Thursday through to midnight, you can double-check the MTV2 information at their site by going
Tickets will be subject to convenience and processing charges. Ticketmaster Canada will be a different website, but we will provide that link on Friday.
