With like 5 different threads I can't keep track of, I'm trying to get a handle on who's going where!

Wife and I are planning for just the two LA dates right now. But we might go for Bill Graham as well (or in place of Shrine) if there's many forumites there too.

And maybe we should coordinate where we're sitting at Greek Theater? Anything closer than the C seats seem good.

I am planning on attending all 3 shows. I'm going to try and persuade my wife to join me for The Greek show but it will depend on whether we can find someone to watch the studio for the days she'd be gone.

I'm looking at A or B for The Greek. It will ultimately depend on price.
I will also be transport-less in California and would definitely be up for sharing some driving or something if that was a plan for anyone? I'd be looking to drive up to San Francisco instead of fly. Then fly out, back to P-town.

C is the farthest I would like to go out but A sounds about perfect! gonna hit up all three shows but will pay the most for the greek.

as for the SF show, I wanna drive too over there but would love to rideshare as well.



EDIT: i know everybody already has seating preferences but I dont mind getting together with the rest of you.

Im gonna see how funds are with regards to how many I purchase, as I am currently going solo (gf is possibly tied up with work during that time). Currently gonna buy 2 per show just in case an extra ends up being needed.

RE: Greek, might end up in the South or North Terraces, if the prices aren't bad and I can get ones close to the B section that still have good sight lines. Or B or A. All depends on the cost.

I would like to attend all of them, but Dr. Leo Marvin has advised me, "baby steps".

Hey midwest folk, anyone give any thought to driving this thing? Sure it's time consuming and sounds just plain exhausting, but I think we could save some serious Chemical Cash if planned out correctly.

Chemical Route 66 Caravan, ASSEMBLE!!!



Seriously though, it's my goal to at least make it out for San Francisco.

Been doing the math on this!

Basically, flights are easier, and unless we get 5+ people in a vehicle, flights are cheaper too.

At 30 mpg average, taking the most direct route, it's going to be about $320 for gas, round trip. It's a 30 hour drive, you could either drive 3 days 2 nights for 10 hours of driving a day, or 2 days 1 night for 15 (oof) hours of driving a day. Gonna go for 2 days 1 night just to have the cheapest solution.

Round trip for 4 people = $80 in gas split per person, 2 nights of cheap $60 hotels ($30 per person if it's 2 to a room) and 4 days of food expenses (say $15 per person per day), would make it $200 per person total.

ORD-LAX flights are $212 round trip right now, and they'll probably get down to $130-$180 in February / March (flights are cheapest 3 months out). So, about the same or better price, for a 4 hour flight vs a 40 hour drive.

Now 5 people on the road trip would = $148, and 6 would = $133, which might beat out the flight prices. But you've got to consider the extra days off work, since the drive will take 2 days there and 2 days back.

Wife and I are still seriously considering a road trip - it's been a dream of hers to drive out west with no plans, maps or navigation, just find what we find by street signs alone until we hit the coast - but also that for us would have to be just a couples thing and we wouldn't be able to join in on a group trip out :/

I will be there for the Los Angeles shows and a good chance (not positive) the San Francisco show. Turns out on the SF date Inhave a family event in Los Angeles that I might be obligated to go to since it’s the first gathering since my dad passed away. Might be able to skip out early, in which case we will fly to San Francisco rather than drive.

Edited to add - looking at my calendar, my family event actually is morning after the SF show. Its going to be a tight squeeze but it may be doable. My husband may divorce me for bringing him on this wild goose chase, though!  :P

This (slightly disgruntled) Canadian is planning to attend all 3 (Yes, 3!) shows. It's the first time in a long time where I can plan ahead and have the money to attend.

Enjoyed - I was thinking the same thing for the trip from LA to SF in terms of shared driving.

Got them! I'm in A The left box. And on that box, I'm on the exact right corner

Section AR T 2!

For those having trouble doing the code thing, go to your email where your access code is located, now click on 'ticket access code'. You should now see your code! Took me a while to figure it out!

LOL, thanks dude! But what about the Journey! Nobody can put a price tag on the JOURNEY!!! For instance,  we could stop in Colorado for that Rocky Mountain High, and then make a pit-Stop in Vegas and gamble away our entire trip. Only to be saved by Nicolas Cage in dire need of some dank weed (which is all we have left). He agrees to get us to LA on his private plane, and we are sooo late to the Shrine show, we have to parachute down to the roof of the venue. Only to be greeted by security, but saved from arrest because Nic's cousin Sofia Coppola (Elektrobank girl) is there to escort us to backstage of the show. Just like the Movies!

You're right though, flying (even via multi-destination) is more affordable, and less taxing.

I too have family events around that time and I completely understand when family comes priority. I'm happy though to be dancing with you at the Shrine event. It's been along time. The only difference from that last show we went to is that ED IS BACK!

Damn any venue that has assigned seating, yet issues you a random seat in the section you choose.

It's important!
