Which ticket master number do you call? Does it matter? If you can, use the internet...it's very difficult to get through in a timely fashion via the phone From my experience, consider the phone hopeless. I would definately suggest going online. Use the phone while ordering online if you have to, b...

I'm going to get lynched for saying this here, but if you really want to go and you really want to sit in the seats and just can't afford it, then buy 6 tickets and sell 4 on ebay and use the profits to offset the cost for a pair for you. Although it may not be the loyal Parrothead way of doing it, ...

If you're looking to spend some time on the road, Jimmy's stop in Bristow, VA right outside of DC is a great venue to get stuck in traffic. You'll see plenty of the roads out here.

When we went to Nissan 3 years ago, we were in the middle of purchasing tickets from ticketmaster when the system crashed. Ticketmaster actually kept track of that and called a few hours later telling us that they had tickets available. I had the same thing happen to me. Because I was logged in whe...

ticket prices are pretty steep all across the board. My husband and I saw Billy Joel last week and our tickets were okay and they cost us over $85 each. So I'm thinking I'd pay $40 more to be super close to the stage to see Buffett. Paying $40 more to be at the ultimate tailgate party, with a ton o...

Yes, same here. We had a group anywhere from 15 to 20 since 1999 but ever since his Nissan shows moved to Thursdays a few years ago, a lot of people have dropped out. Those July 4th weekend shows were the best -a house full of out of town friends, fireworks on the Mall, and Buffett at Nissan. I've ...

Sadly, leaving the country on a whim is probably not going to happen. If you can tow Anguilla up into the Chesapeake Bay, let's talk.

After reading this I popped the DVD in the other night to see what you were talking about. Seeing that woman's reaction made me want to throw my drink at the TV. Not (just) because it was directed at Jimmy, but because of people like that in general. She probably treats everybody like that. Makes me...

I live less than 30 minutes from Nissan and yes parking is a nigtmare. If you are able, I would try to get there at least 4 hours ahead of time (less stress). And the widening of the roads should help but Nissan is bigger than Merriweather. I would rather have more tickets available. We got there l...

It's listed on the Nissan Pavilion website too. The Nissan website says the show is at 7:00 pm with gates opening at 5:30 pm and TicketMaster says 8:00 pm. What's up with that? If the show starts at 8:00, they should put 7:00 just so you have an extra 1 hour traffic allowance. Without exaggeration,...

Takes about 19k and him to offer a meet and greet for a charity. I will let you know how it goes when I meet him this year. It takes a LOT more than $19K just to get his attention, let alone show up! 8) Ohhhh, no wonder he never shows up when I ask him. I'm only paying him $18,999. Shoot... :lol: S...
