got tickets for the 7pm set, figured that ought to be enough as the "2nd show" for stuff like this are typically repeated sets.

Out of curiosity though I went back to the ticket site and selected the 9pm show but it took me to the 7pm order site. Tried a couple times and same thing.

So maybe there is just ONE show with 2 sets ??

Reminder about tickets for the Dakota: all of those tickets in front of the stage on the main floor - tables and booths at the back - are reserved initially for Dakota "members" and dinner reservations which is why it appears they have been sold already (if you're a member and sign in to the ticket site those seats are currently available). At some point before the show - maybe a week or so - they will be released to everyone. Also, I've heard from friends that sometimes a well-timed, polite call to the box office will result in getting these primo seats released to us normal folk. It's a goofy system for sure, and one that makes it tougher for non-members to get the best seats, one of the few things about that place I'm not terribly fond of.

Not sure why tickets aren't available for the second show. Their calendar clearly indicates 2 shows on that date.

just called the box office and the gal there said there is only one show. But then I mentioned that on their calendar web page it indeed appears to be 2 shows (7pm and 9pm) however there is no way to order any tickets for show # 2.

Said she would inquire on her end and get the web site changed as need be....

I just checked and a handful of the previously reserved "primo" seats on the main floor are now showing as available, including a pair right on the edge of the stage in front.

they fixed the ticket ordering page so you can now buy tickets for the 9pm set

It's Olson. Who the hell cares? :p

well when tickets are $30/ea, it'd be nice to know if that gets you into both sets or not (sometimes it does)

As I predicted, a bunch of primo seats for the Olson show at the Dakota are now showing on the seat map as being available to the general public.

It also looks like the second show has been scrubbed - it's not listed on their calendar page anymore. You can select the second show on their ticketing site but it shows no seats available.

Why is this subject not in the OT section?

What, a founding member of the band can't be talked about here? Are you part of the same camp Icehaid is in or what?

Not much else going on on this site, so what else you going to talk about? Don't see any issues about it myself
