As great as the above tour looks can't believe they would such an extensive tour of 14 shows in 35 days which covers the European festival season with lots of days off inbetween. Of course if they did i would go to at least 4 shows.

The official website could not possibly be slower, guess everyone trying to get their pre-sale codes. Took me damn near 15 minutes to get it. Try,page time out, try, page time out, etc

Always, always, always, always save that code elsewhere as soon as it's sent. The site always lags or goes down when tickets go on sale.

Yeah, that is why I tried getting it 2 hours in advance of the sale, I should have done it yesterday instead.

Ouch. :( Advice to all, copy your code and details in advance. The site is going incredibly slow.

Yup, that is the plan ... going with my son and the weekend date works best. Plus we can do "Vegas stuff" while there ... throwing my t-shirt money on black to see if I end up with 2 shirts.
Which means you'll come hang out with the rest of us at Maidenfans Vegas (TM)?

Most certainly .. Might have missed it, but is there an official Maidenfans hotel -- like Mandalay Bay? If not, perhaps we could pick one, I'd be happy to call and declare us a group and we might get some discount depending on how many rooms we get

I'm honestly not sure if there is or not - I'd say roll over to the official meetup thread and ask there.

Damn. Am I glad I decided to go presale route.

Those tickets disappeared in literally an instant that it took me to load the pages. I'm afraid there may not be much left for the general public come October 10.

Anyways, floor tickets secured for both Chicago and Tulsa. Now to only make time skip to February 26th...

So, question for anyone who has gotten floor tickets in the past.

Is the entire floor general admission? Because for Chicago, my tickets are for G3 floor, and in Tulsa they're G1 floor. And looking at the seating charts for each stadium, the floor does seem to be separated into multiple sections.

Are you gauranteed to be in that particular part of the floor, or is it first come first serve?
