Metallica North American second leg. MSG Nov 14th!!!
Back to North America for Fall '09
European Summer Vacation, part 2,347 will end on August 2, so that can only mean one thing ... more dates in the U.S. and Canada! We just rocked Austin at SXSW and are super psyched that we'll be back in North America visiting our friends in the Fall as the World Magnetic Tour keeps rolling on. We had an amazing time on the last run in '08 and early '09 and we are so ready to do it again!

[QUOTE=Timmy®;3058237]Are you a member of the club? Do they mail the pre-sales tickets or do you have to pick them up at the box office?[/QUOTE]
I'm a member. Yes you have to pick them up at the box office. It's totally worth it. I had fan club tix for 2 out of the 3 shows.
[QUOTE=Timmy®;3058343]Thanks for the reply Supe. I wouldn't mid dropping $45 as long as I knew I'd be in the first half of the floor or first half of the first level.[/QUOTE]
It's a guarantee. You can choose GA or first level. And the fan club seat in the actual seats they are towards the middle sections so you are not in the corners. I had GA for the Nassau show, and Newark Night 1. Night 2 of Newark I was 9th row left of the fan club seats.

Can you do me a favor? Can you see if they have announced a pre-sale date for Montreal on September 19? I tried to get in the website but I didn't have a password. I want to make sure the Canadian concerts are included in the pre-sales. If so, I'll join.

September 19 Montreal, QC Bell Centre on sale April 1
Yep, April 1st is the Metclub pre sale for Sept 19th.
Its definitely worth it. I have a membership and bought 6 tickets to two of the shows in January (boston and first newark night). Both of those shows sold out right when they went on sale. Tickets that I bought were going for 4-5 times their face value.
I'd rather sign up for the fan club and pay an additional $7.5 a ticket (45/6) than get upper level seats.
Did you get tickets for either night in Montreal?[/QUOTE]
Yes, I got 2 tickets from the presale for first night Montreal. The Canadian sales were a little different than US sales. I didn't have to use my code, instead I had to logon to the club page to find the generic code everyone used. That means people could give the code to their friends. There was also someone selling the code on Ebay for ten bucks. I got in front of the stage, but a little further back than I might have wanted. Toward the back of the first level. Still, a lot better than I would have got in the public sale.
The good news is, the tickets are being mailed to me rather than pickup , so if I can't go I can sell them.
[QUOTE=LIDeadHead;3083219]For the record. At 10:00:11 AM this morning, no tickets were available for MSG. But for everyone's convience, ticketmaster now has the entire stadium available for an average of $300 a ticket.
Ticketmaster Now = Concert PSL's :steamin::steamin::steamin:[/QUOTE]
They just added a second show on Nov 15th, tickets are available...
I just read online that they are having a sale for tickets they held aside on monday for metallica club members. It wouldnt be a bad move to join the club for $40 and get pretty good seats at face value on monday.
The email I got said the 14th (sat.) show was the 2nd added show. That was sold out the moment they went "onsale". At 10:02 Ticketsnow had a TON of seats available. How is that even possible less then 2 minutes after they went onsale?
Anyway, I bought 2 nice nosebleeds for $173 for Sunday. :O
