I like these guys fine, but are they really capable of filling Carnegie Hall?!

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2009 8:47 PM

Does this seem like an odd choice of venue for this band (or choice of band for this venue) to anyone else?

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2009 8:47 PM

carneige hall only holds 3,000 people so yeah, they should be able to. especially since they havent played a show in NYC for over a year.

Posted by jason | February 23, 2009 10:21 PM

Anyone know how much tickets cost?

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2009 10:24 PM

$30-$35. Before fees and taxes.

Lolla?

Chicago date suspiciously absent

does anyone know if there is a presale for this show?

Posted by brain | February 23, 2009 11:09 PM

Did anyone see them at the Tibet House benefit last year at Carnegie? They played 20-30 feet back from the front of the stage. Really awkward. As good as the acoustics are at Carnegie, this is not a good place for a rock band (although I suppose it beats Terminal 5, which has similar capacity).

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2009 11:22 PM

Saw them at Carnegie for the Tibet House concert last year and thought they sounded great. Didn't feel awkward at all.

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2009 11:30 PM

They did sound great at Carnegie, but I agree with 11:22 - it was awkward. The band was positioned at the back of the stage and as a result there was no connection with the crowd. Is it always this way at Carnegie or was that just a result of the set-up of the Tibet House benefit?

I think that's how it was when the Black Keys played there for Tibet too.

No Philly date??!?! WTF?!?!! Come on guys!

Acoustic! Even better!

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 8:48 AM

I wish there was a Philly show too...but I will take the show in NYC...did anyone come across a presale?

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 9:34 AM

if it's an acoustic show, i can guarantee you they're going to expand the bill with other similarly popular bands.

Posted by dan | February 24, 2009 9:56 AM

it is acoustic dan. check their website. jeez. not that hard. engage with the bands, not just blogs.

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 10:47 AM

just to let everyone know you can most likely go directly to the box office at carn hall and get tix without any bogus surcharges.

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 10:53 AM

From Wal-Mart to Carnegie. Classy!

philly =beruit 1980. they should just wall it off and drop prisoners there like escape from ny. what a POS city.

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 11:32 AM

Anyone know of a pre-sale?? I went to the carnegie website and there is no mention.

Posted by jd | February 24, 2009 11:44 AM

You know this has been bothering me for awhile. Companies like Live Nation and Ticketmaster have been taking advantage of customers for years. They never seem to be able to handle all the phone calls or people on the Internet trying to buy tickets and they have never upgraded to meet those needs completely. I remember when Pearl Jam upset a lot of fans by not touring because they refused to work with a company like Ticketmaster. I for one was upset with PJ because I wanted to see them live. I know understand their fight because I feel fans are getting raped by these companies by ticket fees. Last year alone I went to 20 shows. This year I already have 8 lined up. Yesterday I bought Keane tickets at the Tower in Philadelphia. The tickets are $32 dollars and the ticket fees from Live Nation are $15. That's almost half the ticket price. Not to mention you then have to pay for parking at these venues. Something needs to be done about these fees. I know it doesn't cost Live Nation $15 to mail and process my information for these tickets. We are in an economic crisis and the poor get poorer and the rich are getting richer. And now with Ticketmaster owning companies like TicketsNow, it throws a whole different wrench into the system. These CEO's are ripping off hard working people so they can sit back and take in the wealth. I would love protest some of these companies by not buying tickets, but then I miss out on some great bands. Something needs to be done.

Only thing you can do about it, 12:04, is stop going to shows.

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 12:16 PM

He should definitely stop going to shows if the ones he's going to are named Keane!

Posted by Anonymous | February 24, 2009 1:10 PM

Well you can say what you want to say about the concerts I go to, I don't care about that. Though I am going to a Band of Horses show, so should you stop going to concerts because I like BofH as well? Probably not, my point is that ticket companies are ripping people off. There are things you can do like talk to your local congress person and not allow mergers between Ticketmaster and Live Nation to happen or Ticketmaster be able to own Tickets Now. Going to the venue and buying tickets always help, but I have moved out of Philly and now have to resort to buying them online.

I hope they can come to Britain,

By the way I would like to thank the people doing this blog - it is really nice and helpful.

Posted by SJ | February 24, 2009 3:31 PM

So excited about this
And it is true that Carnegie charges convenience fees but not as ridiculous as TM, so this should be a lot of fun

Row H, sick!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:17 AM

Ugh. I opened another window to see what other tickets I could get, and it added 4 more tickets to my order. Now I have 6 tickets, Gah!

Posted by Cuse | February 27, 2009 11:18 AM

just got off the phone, all floor seats are gone
i'm glad to see they are actually selling off this place
this will be amazing!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:18 AM

It's going back to floor again. 20 minutes later and the tickets are BETTER. >:|

Posted by Cuse | February 27, 2009 11:20 AM

$41 is too much...would like to go but just saw them last year...have fun y'all! Hopefully I can score a cheap one outside!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:20 AM

Good for them. I think this may sell out rather quickly...

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:24 AM

I love that they have shows like this at Carnegie Hall, it's so beautiful... but getting tix is always a clusterfuck. Managed Row S, decent, but not as good as I hoped.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:27 AM

website working again but only upper level seats left
i actually was in the highest box once to see the Magnetic Fields and the sound is as good there as downstairs, so I'd say grab those tickets while you can

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:27 AM

Row E for Carnegie Hall right in the center! I cant wait!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:36 AM

Keep trying. I got first tier tickets, i think they are up to second tier now.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:38 AM

yeah they are mixing them up now, just remember that when it says center area usually is the back (where the double letters are) or in the balcony. either way the place is small and the show will be amazing

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:40 AM

You can hear a pin drop in that room. This is going to be amazing.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:43 AM

saw them for free two years ago, so no way in hell am i gonna pay to see them now, not after that show. ok see ya, just thought id share...

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 11:52 AM

Row H Orchestra. Not too shabby.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 12:13 PM

it would be amazing if they taped this show for a CD too, is that too much to ask?

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 12:19 PM

Ugh got Row S earlier, but now Row O is available. Or in other words... keep trying folks, better tix seem to be avail now.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 12:34 PM

The box office was an exercise in not losing it in public. The line for tickets was the same as the line for people buying tickets to tour the concert hall. People who stood there debating whether to go on the 2 o'clock or the 2:30 while those of us there for BoH were tearing our hair out, convinced the show would be sold out before we got up there. I got there at ten to 11, waited for probably 20 minutes, and ended up with Orchestra Left, Row Y. But, no extra charges!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 12:49 PM

At times like that it makes you wonder if it is worth saving the $6?

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 12:56 PM

^^
Despite the beautiful day today, I'm glad I went with the online option. Row H orch and no stress. Well worth the couple extra bucks!

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 1:13 PM

Look, I got revved up to give someone a beating and the stupid tourists didn't get it so you'd best not provoke me!

I don't know, it sounds like some people had just as stressful a time and/or worse seats with the surcharges, so I'm calling it good. Bottom line, there isn't a bad seat in that house in terms of sound and we're all going to get to see them do an acoustic set there, so it's all good.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2009 1:16 PM

Agreed, it is all good. No need to dish out any beatings today. Serenity now.
