This had to be the worst fan club pre-sale ever! First they didn't even get the password out. Most if not all had to get it from other sources or just start guessing and hope something worked. Then when you finally got a chance to make a purchase all that was available were the $129 seats in the sections to the far sides of the stage. Did anyone get the $200 seats in the 300,400 or 500 sections which are the ones in the center of the theatre?? Oh if you wanted those seats you could have them for $540 a piece.haha!! really even if all the boys got back together and recreated the Lamb not sure if those prices are worth it more or less for this show. And finally if you notice those special bundle tickets were like 1/3 the price for the Europe shows what with that. This was totally inexcusable. Thanks for shutting out the real fans again!!!!!!!!

i'm wondering this question myself.I get the impression this was only for gold/platinum Am Ex card holders in the "Preferred seating" option for their pre-sale.

We did. For both Sunday and Monday. But I never got it to come up. My sister in NYC did. We were both trying at the same time and were on the phone while doing so. I did try for a single seat a few times and got one to come up in the 300 section Row SS, I believe (if I remember correctly), for Monday night.
Strange thing though, when my sister first got in (she guessed the password Scratch) she got 1st Mezz seats. Then after about 4 tries, she got the seats we took. She was working on getting Monday night while I was working on Sunday. After she got those seats for Monday, she switched to trying for Sunday with me. I wasn't having any lucky and then she got the same seats offered that she had gotten for Monday night, so we took them.
We are 17 rows back in Section 500 right on the aisle next to the 400 section.

thanks for the info, I'm glad to hear some fans got the $200 tix using "scratch".My 500s row YY's for $130 are about 30th row back I'm guessing depending on if they using the pit for seats or for the stage, with a big orchestra, not sure if the pit is seating or staging.still i'm not furious about it, though it was a poorly executed "fan" pre-sale where many scalpers got lucky. all they had to do is email us something a bit more challenging to type in and all would have something I'm thinking.
hey gladiator, things could have been worst!
no pre-sale at all.

This is what I did: For two days I left my computer on and on the page that said: "presale is starting on Feb. 6 at 10:am." And I kept checking back every hour on the PG site. The night before the presale I stayed up all night, and did housework and kept checking. Then, right at 10:am, nothing. So I went back to the PG site, and right at 10:am they said "presale is today, and the password is 'scratch'." so I jumped back to the other page, and clicked on the link to buy the ticket and lo and behold I got a great seat for only 75.00. I never thought that would happen.
So I went back on the PG site later and the site had crashed. So I had a feeling some people were going to get shut out.
But in 1992 I went to see a Genesis concert at the Oakland coliseum and I will always remember the crappy seat I got. I still can't really say that I saw Genesis, unless you count the giant screen I ended up having to watch.
But that was in their hayday, so I don't think I will see that type of performance from them again and I can see why Phill doesn't want to tour anymore. I missed my second chance to see them in their recent tour, because they skipped the northwest.
I'm sorry for all the people who didn't get good tickets, but I'm sure Peter will perform again, he is always touring and raising money for causes. There are also a lot of websites right now that have decent prices, what I have done over the years Is I got some really high powered binoculars. They get tiring after awhile to hold, the expensive ones I got because that type is hard to hold up for a long time.
Also that night I went to see Elton John, just happened to be on the same day, and I found out I also got a good seat where I could finally see. He dueted with Billy Joel, and the last song they did together (I was expecting it) was "piano man." It was awesome.
Post back and I might have info about the Hollywood Bowl. We should all meet up before the show.

We got (2) $199 tix in Row TT. Just started guessing the passwords, and got in with 'scratchmyback' at about 10:10 on Ssturdy morning.

I got two tickets to Radio Cty in Orch 3, row RR, seats 303 and 304 for the Sunday Night show using the presale. Guessed "Scratch my back" at about 10:30, which let us in to the TM site. The Orch 3 seats were the first tickets to come up so I guess we were very lucky. This pre-sale, as well as others over the last few years, makes me long for the days of Ticketron.
