Wow, I managed to get tickets to "The Police"
Jumped on Ticketmaster at 1000, lucked out with a readable "verification" word (for once - usually they take me several tries), and got seats at the price I wanted. My hands were shaking something fierce but I managed to type in my info in time.

Is it really that competitive?
Sold out in about 30 seconds. This was the second show (they had to add one because of the demand).

see you in a week.
Nice, I just went through the same thing you did about a week ago getting AFI tickets in Vegas.
My friend wanted them so bad and I hooked him up with my best buy rewards code when they were doing the presale, but his only option was 1 ticket for $250, so he didn't buy. Good thing he managed to get them today.
I do agree that Sting can be a little "easy listening" at times, but he and the Police are amazing musicians. Definitely unique. I also love System of a Down, Angelite (The Bulgarian Women's Choir), Gustav Holst, Infected Mushroom, and the Black Dyke Mills Band so it's not as if my musical tastes are limited to soft rock.
I had a BestBuy presale code but I was off on a getaway at a B&B and decided (despite the presence of a computer with email) to AVOID the internet for a couple of days, which coincided with when I got the BestBuy email, so I missed out on that.
Tickets were $95 CA each, plus the "inconvenience" charges, so the total for the pair was $219 CA. Pretty pricy but I think it will be a good show, and The Police is the band my BF and I listened to the most when we first got together 10 years ago, so it's sortof our "thing".
I just wish they were coming closer around here, my dad and I would be going if they came to Chicago or something.
I'm probably going to bonnaroo with some friends, it's also headlining the police. It's a 4-day camping/music festival.
I was just looking at that today. I would kill to go, The Police, Tool, etc.
I'm looking into Lollapalooza too.
My friends are going to bonnaroo. For the drugs and the music. I can't go with my child on the way, but I know they will have a really good time.

WOHOOO Just bought my tickets for ACL Fest. I have been every year since 03, so this will be my 5th time going. It is a blast every time, they really know how to run a good festival and it is in a great city. I am pretty satisfied with the lineup this year, a lot better than last years and maybe on par with 2005's. If anyone else is thinking of going let me know, I'll show ya a good time around austin.
