Has anyone received them yet? I'm trying not to be impatient, but it's just a week away.

Still waiting for mine too. Thought they would have been sent out today.

You'll probably get the email three or four days before the performance.
It seems disorganized - but maybe they really don't have it decided before then.
Hang in there, and just make plans to arrive 2 to 3 ish at the venue.
The email WILL come eventually.

Jeepster, that's what I was hoping too. Seemed to me a few of the venues got them a week before.
Peregrine, I'm sure they have a reason, just can't figure it out. Hanging in there.

OK, got the email. Phew. Looks like once we are in, we are in for the duration. Hope they have really good appetizers.

Say hi to your lovely host for the day- Zack, for me!! He is a very kind person.
Have fun, and it is my sincerest wish that you get to meet Peter, up close and personal.

Thanks Lore, wish you could be there too. Will make a note to say hi to Zack. I like kind people.
Hope to meet Peter too. Especially, since I totally blew it at Radio City last year. Have a feeling there will be too many people at the Chicago soundcheck to get my hopes up. Plus he's probably getting tired from all the shows now. Have a friend from Michigan coming down to go with me, so I'm planning on having a great time whatever happens.

Zach is indeed awesome. Super nice, informative, and helpful.
The letters all said "no in and out" but many of the venues are allowing it. They did in Houston.
That said, I don't know why people would want to leave and come back. You might miss something! I had a fantastic time just chilling out with all the other Peter Gabriel fans, noshing on some good munchies, and staying out of the Houston heat.
As a surprise bonus, the folks in Houston got a chance to talk to Dickie Chappell, Peter's right-hand man. He's a gracious and ~fascinating~ man. We really loved chatting with him.
Those who have yet to see a show, you are in for a RARE TREAT! This tour is just amazing. Soak in every second of it!!

Zenrider-What do you mean you totally blew it at Radio City? I'm sure you told me the story, but I don't remember the details. I think there will be fewer of you at the sound check in Chicago, than there were in NYC! I'm at the waiting for the e-mail stage, since my show is coming up this Friday. No e-mail details yet, but it seems like most of the e-mails are identical for the shows.
