Hi all,

A long time lurker here who just registered.

I thought for sure the Chicago Park West show was sold out - but I was wrong. I just picked up 4 tix for the March 12 show.

Just an FYI.

Considering Chitown is a pretty good base for 'hawks fans, etc. I'm surpised this thing wasn't long sold out.

Color me very excited.

And colour me surprised! 2 mins ago I got my Jam Music weekly email thingy in my Inbox and it shows Olson/Louris as sold out!

Thru Ticketmaster. Went there out of the blue - was actually searching for ticket brokers in the Chicago area. Decided to do TM first and bam - there they were!

Looks like you have to be careful what you search under - there are 4 or 5 variations. Search under "Mark Olson & Gary Louris" for the Chi tix. Good luck to those without!

Under "search" I put in "Park West" - that's how the tix turned up for me...

I found them and ordered two tickets...but I have to convince my hubby about it. We have friends who live in Chicago area and it would be cool if we could go see them before the show.

I did that same search a couple days ago. It said "Find Tickets Now". I put in how many I wanted and after it searched for a while, it said it couldn't find any.

I just did it again and I got the same results :mad:

It also says this after it says my request is unavailable:

If you are unable to find tickets, be sure to check back often. As the date of the event nears, often times a limited number of tickets may be released.

Im sure the scalpers got most of them.

Sometimes a credit card has been rejected and tix mysteriously become available...it's been happening with the other bird band's NYC tix!

Well, I know in California scalping is legal. I bought tickets that way out there and boy they are expensive. One way to make a lot of money off of gulible fans.

I tried like nobody's business to get tickets to the Chicago show. It's my hometown - but I live in LA now. Now I'm flying all the way to Nashville for the weekend to see them instead. BALLS.

At least I'm getting to see them at all... what with all the bad noise about the hazy future of the band.
