    It's true, it's true, it's true!!! I can't believe it!

    I can't wait! I just hope the tickets aren't too expensive, and that they don't sell out too fast.

    OK....Who in California is willing to take in a 51yr old West Virginian and his wife, who is just as eager as he is to see this band finally????? Seriously, opening up in the USA is fantastic news and hopefully many more people here come to realize just how great of a band this truly is! Hopefully, later in 2012 a full tour is announced and my wife and I won't have to trek half-way across the country (and here we were thinking we'd have to move to Finland)<

    Yay! Happiness cometh to the faithful :) I'm happy for you getting finally the chance to see a Nw-show with all the bells and whistles they use in European arenas.

    It'll be a great show with pyros, fireworks and whatnot in a 6200+ seat theatre.

    Will it sell out? I think so. You'll see an invasion of people from all over the globe arriving in LA for this show like they did come to Finland for the previous Once and DPP album release shows.


    About tickets, this email from EnterTheVault which was sent to registered customers yesterday :

    It might be about something else, but many people on discussion boards suggest that this might be about the NIGHTWISH show in LA, so better check www.enterthevault.com on Friday.

    Even the Gibson Amphitheatre is a Live Nation venue, it's possible that enterthevault will have at least a limited amount of regular and vip tickets for pre-sale like they usually do. And if they do launch a pre-sale, I think the tickets for this show will be moving fast.

    Thanks for that Enigma.... keep an eye out- I've heard nothing from certain people but since they had to announce this due to a leak I don't think it will be this soon

    We've got to meet up!!!

    Oh man, I am so broke right now, but then again, I have nearly a year to pay it all off. But I definitely want a VIP ticket if they are available!

    As long as there are VIP tickets and I have a chance at one, I'm fine. ;)

    It said in the announcement that a full U.S. tour would not be until late '12, so if you don't want to wait that long, then I would say to come on out to L.A.!

    I would really like to plan a meet-up among the OSAers sometime among all of this. Gibson is located inside an amusement park called Universal Studios, so while it's not Disneyland, I think it's a good place to have a meet-up and have a little fun before the big show. :D

    Surprisingly the VIP tickets came on sale today already *click*

    but they seem to cost an arm and a leg :err: :loco: :bah:

    Universal City CA Door: tbd Show: TBD

    Tickets: $250.00 (+$25 service fee!) for
    General Admission PIT ticket / Pre-show party / Special VIP access

    From what I've been told by several different sources, these VIP tickets do not include a meet-and-greet, so I really don't see myself putting that kind of money out just so I can sit in a green room and eat stale pizza before the show. :lol:

    I'm sure regular tickets will be reasonable; I paid about $40-$50 for tickets to Maiden/Halford/Queensryche at the same venue, but this was 10 years ago and I had to end up selling the tickets. But either way, I'm sure that it won't be that much more expensive. I'm thinking at least $60-$100.

    OK, so I talked to the folks at Gibson yesterday and here's the scoop.

    First off, they don't even have any knowledge that this show is taking place. It's not even listed on their schedule yet. So these non-VIP "tickets" that are going for $400 that everyone's freaking out about are definitely from a ticket-scalping site. They confirmed this to me, and they also said that even the scalpers do not have tickets because they have not officially been sold yet; the prices listed are just what sites like this hope to get when the tickets do go onsale. They had no info about the VIP tickets being sold on Enter the Vault, or whether or not there would be any more VIP tickets sold either through their will call or through Ticketmaster (although from experience, I did buy VIP tickets through the box office for Stratovarius, so it's not entirely impossible that the same could happen here). Nor do they know yet when tickets will be going onsale via Ticketmaster. But needless to say, what they could confirm is that when this show does go onsale, most likely the price for good seats will not be in the $400 price range, as some of these sites have listed.

    It's very common that the people who answer the phone at a venue don't have a clue who'll be performing and when before the gig is announced to the public by the promoter and then listed in their schedule and on their website. The details and launch date of the marketing campaign are set in the contract between the promoter and the venue's marketing persons.

    In this case I think that EnterTheVault is selling the VIP tickets already, because of their connection with First Row Talent agency who represents Nw's management in the North American metal tour market. ETV has had advance VIP ticket sales for many tours arranged by FTR during the years. Obviously the regular tickets will go on sale later when ETV has used their advance sales period. At the beginnig of next month already - maybe???

    Figures, I talked to them on Friday night and when they looked up the event on LiveNation, they said there was nothing there. Their venue is affiliated with LiveNation, so I figured when they were telling me this, that they were correct. So now all the good seats are probably sold out. :(

    I even signed up for e-mail notification! What gives?!

    Sorry C I forgot to reply to your email. I won't be able to make it. I'm off to Kitee in December and then finland again in January (where in Finland I'm not told yet) so I'll have to stick to UK and FI shows :)

    I'm sure it will be epic though.

    That's too bad; the prices are pretty good for non-VIP tickets. I wish someone would come to the show so I could have someone to go with.

    I guess I could ask my friend again but if I could help out a fellow Nightwish fan instead, I would.

    We may just do that; a while back we were discussing bringing back our old OSA chats so maybe we can come and visit your chat room sometime?

    And yes, I understand the money situation. This show will put me back more than a few pennies myself, and I'm only traveling a 2-hour distance!

    Had to wait for my pay check, which kind of blows for having gotten really good seats, but not that big of a deal to me I am just happy to be going. Now to make travel plans.
