    What about ordering by phone? It seems alot of PTers got tix last time around by calling a TM phone operator about 5 minutes before the onsale, chatting them up a bit, and then have them start looking at 11:59.

    Seems the phone operator's computers don't crash right away like they do everytime for us normal people.


    edit to add: Apparently there is a TM outlet at the Sam Goody in Glenwood. Anyone ever been? I didn't even think Sam Goody even still existed.

    Well, I guess we should call and verify that they indeed exist and have a working ticket machine. If so, I will be headed to glenwood next thurs as well.

    This won't be easy, so need to get creative.

    Not even going to bother trying to buy on the 'net. That's just an exercise in frustration. Think I found my secret LiveNation outlet.

    could be --but if they are assigning the confirmation numbers numerically I dont think its that high. Had a buddy get in the lottery as soon as it was announced and i just finished mine and we are about 52k apart.

    52k apart, but most probably ordered the max # of tickets, which is 8. so that's 400k ticket requests right there. Figure 1/4 of the seats go to Phish lottery, so there are really only 9,000 seats available through the lottery for the combined four nights.

    Between my wife and I, we requested 32 tickekts. (8*2*2).
    (We have several mailing addresses on our credit cards for such occassions.)

    buddy of mine got #4896XXX the morning of the release
    i got #4984xxx about 15 minutes ago

    Curios if there are different starting numbers for the different venues.....or if the whole second leg started from the same (seemingly random) number........but either way I dont think it matters too much--its a crap shoot at best.

    The ONLY nice thing about potentially being shut out of actually getting tickets, should it come to that is that you can hear shows *relatively* well from outside.

    I like phishshow's suggestion of calling TM 5 mintues prior and slow rolling them,

    "Sooooooo how you doing today maam?

    The boss treating you okay today?

    mmmmmmmmm?

    yeah, okay so I was thinking I could order........ some ahhhh, ticket.

    Tickets actually, because I don't want to have to go alone.

    God forbid!

    That would beeeeeeeeee embarrasing....

    PHISH AT RED ROCKS PLEASE."

    Been there done that.

    Conversation at 8:55 went something like:

    Yes, do you have Yankees tickets available for next Janaury 1 in Seattle?

    2 mintues pass...

    No? How about tickets to see the Beatles reunion show at the Garden?

    2 minutes pass...

    No? Can you double check the spelling? and so on...

    9AM finally rolls around and its time to ask for Phish tixs...

    Going to Jones Beach both nights. Worst venue there is. Horrible security lines, no beer inside, terrible sound. Oh and it's Lawng Giland.

    Ticket lottery for Red Rocks, Merriwether, and Saratoga.

    Let's all think positive thoughts about the maggots getting some RR tix.

    I feel good about this lottery though.
