Got tickets for the Portland Oregon gig, section 102, row R, seats 11 and 12. I've been a fan since i heard "Working Man" back in 1974, and they've been my favorite band since. But this time i'm taking my wife, who has never seen them in concert. I can't wait for her to feel the energy, the melodic tones flowing through her, and all the people moving in and around us, singing songs and just enjoying the experience. Worth every penny in my opinion. This could very well be their last tour and i was not going to miss it. So glad i get to experience this with my wife.

Quick question for those who've already see a show in their Clockwork Angels any of you know their set of songs they're going to play, other than songs from the new album?

Thanks, and wherever you are, have a great day.

Smiley, hope you get a chance to be at the Austin show. This Caravan just keeps thundering onward. That is a beautiful thing, indeed!

learning so much from your sharing, thank you all, patience is always hard, though Them Angels always seem to come through! They are working

#134 simon r I agree w/you too. I got lucky and got great seats right before the show twice last year. One of those times, I pulled up front row in front of Alex about a week before the Cleveland show. You just have to be patient and know how to play that ticketing game.

kjbird, I agree w/you too about the VIP seats....I like to know where I'm sitting ahead of time. 3 of the 4 shows I went to last year I was 7th row or closer....which are within the VIP that makes me reluctant to go VIP this time around. Why bother spending the money for VIP if you can get something comparable at regular price? If I could pick my VIP seat like on the Time Machine tour, I'd probably go the VIP route.

#132 - no worries...wait till the dust settles, you'll find some good ones.

#134 simon r - agree with you. Both shows i caught in 2011 were non-VIP, one was a last minute decision and i got center 16 rows back from a fellow RIABer. The other I got 4th row, Alex's side. They'll open up, just have to be patient at times. It is a headache, though, i'll admit. I cannot handle not knowing where my seat is, and knowing i can get decent ones at a reasonable price and know ahead of time where i'll be, is what keeps me from going VIP route.

just landed 2 tix - 9 rows up immediate stage right for Nashville! Due to me being vertically challenged I have no interest in sitting on the floor! Am 'happy as a leetle guhl!!!!!!!!!!'
#134 - Posted 1/23/13 @11:36AM by simon r

Stressful time for everyone all this presale stuff. I wouldnt panic too much-quite a few fans managed to get great seats days before a show or on night last yr. Of course if you want VIP you would have to strike lucky but it has been done- I got 3 rows from stage middle block in Glasgow in 2011 3 weeks before show at face value-no VIP last time UK.I usually buy general sale as soon as they are available-got great side seat lower level Geddy side in Vancouver in 2011 7 rows back level with row 2 on floor.
126-I think they will do either Gorge or White-they finished in 2011 there-just a case of whether tour will finish East or West this time-I have a hunch it will be East if NY Radio City is inc. I also think LA,Vegas,Toronto,NY will be added to these as they are favs of band.

I guess I shouldn't ask the obligatory "will the setlist change". With the same moaning voices asking for Losing It. YKWYA
