Wow. That's some big news. Now we need some more dates (and preferable no more radio station festivals).

It was an awesome lineup before they announced Zwan, now it's freaking incedible.

More bands are coming, but none could be bigger then that.

Sign up to be an HFSdotComrade from the www.whfs.com website. They haven't sent out the presale emails yet so you may still be able to get in on it.

Can we really blame them? "Zwan" doesn't sell out a venue... "Zwan w/Billy Corgan" does.

Didn't it take like, less than two minutes for some of the Cali shows to sell out?

Yeah, but there's a big difference between the Glass House and the MCI Center. Most people don't know anything about Zwan.

I was wondering the same thing. It must be different types of seating since ticketmaster has ticket prices for the event listed as $29.99-$39.99.

dishpan
11-07-2002, 10:54 PM
theres floor tix and seats tix, thats why theres two different prices. also, theres a 4 ticket limit for the floor, and an 8 ticket limit total. hey how do we know if its gonna be the end stage setup or the center stage setup?

peabody
11-08-2002, 07:17 AM
has anyone gotten the presale stuff yet?

will they send it at like...9:54 or something?

i am torn between floor tickets and seats. :( i think seats would be better, i don't wanna stand around and wait for the other bands to finish or anything. hmm.

Doesn't look like we're gonna be able to openly tape:

"MCI CENTER - WASH,DC
NO CAMERAS/RECORDERS
99.1 WHFS PRESENTS
THE HFSMAS NUTCRACKER
DOORS OPEN AT 5:30PM
FRI DEC 13, 2002 7:00PM"

Well, if that's the case, then I'm not gonna bother to lug my DA-P1. And my video cameras are TOO good and too big to possibly even make it through security. Well, shit.

Others will just have to stealth it. I'm kinda ambivalent about Zwan in an arena, but I know I'll be there anyway.

I got mine. But I think I got mine because I was already signed up for the 9:30 Club newsletter (the HFS festival is advertised on the 9:30 Club website). I'll PM you.

but i don't know what to do!

i changed the cc# on my account for express ordering. and it still says it doesn't work!

wtf?

dishpan
11-08-2002, 08:49 AM
i dunno, try a different credit card if you have one, or maybe their express thing takes a while to update or something, so try entering everything manually at checkout instead of using the express feature.

i give up. i have class in a minute.

i'll try again later. or at the sale tomorrow. ugh.

seign
11-08-2002, 08:50 AM
Don't panic peabody. They won't sell out before tomorrow at 11am. You should have submitted your credit card info and set up an account before the tickets went on sale. I learned that the hard way myself the first time I used ticketmaster via the internet.

Use a different card and try tomorrow morning during the public on-sale. And I'm sure people will extras.

from that email I didn't get:

"Weíve arranged for a limited number of tickets to be made available to the well-connected (that means you!) They can be purchased in advance, starting Friday, November 8th, from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM, or while supplies last."

Haha.... I love stupid radio stations. "Secret passsword", eh? I don't live in the DC area and I had never heard of HFS until yesterday... but here I just ordered my two tickets easily. There was nothing "just for loyal HFS fans" about it. And it's not even 10:00am yet.

peabody
11-08-2002, 09:44 AM
dear ticketmaster,

the month of October in the year 2004 has not passed yet, no matter what you may think.

peabody
11-08-2002, 09:52 AM
when can i CALL and order tickets?

tomorrow?

dishpan
11-08-2002, 09:55 AM
yeah, tomorrow morning i guess. did you try *not* using the express checkout pb?
