Cue the mass panic when the preorder sells out and many people think the actual shows are sold out.

Damn. I just saw the shows are 18+. Tracy and I have to bring my 16 year old daughter since she lives with us now. This might be a huge issue. Checking on this now...

We are thinking of bringing our 16 year old son as well as our 20 year old daughter. If you find some helpful info, i would be grateful if you would share.

Thanks

Kind of guessed the dates and had made a reservation for 2/14 at the Hotel Indigo using my IHG points. Would love to see more than one show but my wife is not into the Truckers nor does she like GA venues. Our plan is to fly to Atlanta, drive to Athens, catch the show on the 14th and then spent two days in Atlanta. First time at the 40 Watt and seeing the Truckers there.

Send her to Atlanta. You stay in Athens for all 3 shows.

What happens between you & your wife stays between you & your wife but I respectfully suggest that you will be very disappointed w/ that arrangement once you experience homecoming. At the very least I suggest that if u see only one show you make it Saturday. But if I were you I'd consider other compromises like days in ATL & nites in Athens (the drive is no big deal off rush hours) or early nites in ATL followed by returning to Athens in time for DBT (the earliest they'll go on is 9:30 and it's usually after 10). Again, your family is yours but another thought is that any number of spouses/partners come to HC but don't attend all the shows.

At least as of earlier this morning the Marriott Courtyard had dropped its insane $300+/nite rate back to the more typical $180 range. I don't know how many rooms or for how long.

HeAthens Homecoming 2019 (2/13-2/16) OFFICIAL

Postby Zip Up to Michigan » Tue Oct 30, 2018 1:02 pm

Per DBT's Facebook page:

HeAthens Homecoming 2019!
Pre-sale 10/31 Noon, ET
https://drivebytruckers.shop.ticketstoday.com/
Y’all,
I have this weird trait where I can remember strange random things vividly.
Minute details of forgettable things, set list quirks from specific dates of random shows.
I saw Springsteen for the first time on 2/13/81.
First time I ever heard Pink Floyd's "Money" was sitting in back of Ann Coldiron’s Oldsmobile around the time of my 9th birthday on my way out to McGee Town Alabama. Etc.
I set foot in The 40 Watt Club for the first time on Feb. 13th 1994.
It was the first time I had ever been to Athens and I saw Counting Crows opening for Cracker that night.
(Show was SOLD OUT and I didn’t have a ticket, but they ended up letting us in anyway. Don’t try that shit now though).
The 25th Anniversary of that date corresponds with what is (probably) the 19th annual HeAthen’s Homecoming.
We’re going to celebrate that (and so much more) by having a special show on Wed. Feb. 13th 2019.
Adam’s House Cat headlining with the incomparable Jay Gonzalez opening.
It’ll be an early show with Jay playing at 9pm and AHC on by 10:30 so people can plan their late night festivities accordingly.
The AHC shows last month went fantastic and we just had to do it all once again.
(If you haven’t already done so, make sure you grab the yellow vinyl of “Town Burned Down”. It Kicks Ass!)
We’re thrilled to announce the lineup for this year’s HeAthen’s Homecoming at The Fabulous 40 Watt Club:
Thursday Feb. 14. - we’ll kick off our Valentine’s Celebration with Don Chambers opening . His new album is Fantastic! Don’t Miss.
Friday Feb. 15 - DBT will be joined by our dear friends from Portland Oregon: Eyelids. They opened for us last time we toured Europe and have a great new album.
Saturday Feb. 16 - we’ll have The Camp Amped Band kicking things off, followed by a special set by Linqua Franqa. She is totally Badass and we’re super excited to have her do her thing. (By day she is known around town as Athens / Clark County City Commissioner Mariah Parker and she’s a badass there also.)
Last year’s HH is a tough act to follow, but I think we’re up to the job and hope you’ll be there to help us make it all happen.
Now more than ever, Fight The Power and See You at The Rock and Roll Show.
Sincerely,
Patterson Hood (DBT’s)

So excited! Got an early green light, which is rare in my world.

Homecoming/Fans book info, pics, etc. coming this week or early next - bottom line is we hope to start pre-sales next week and begin shipping them out 12/1 from NC....start thinking of your Holiday gifts! :-)

Bonus is that this saves all of us husbands from shopping for Valentine Day Gifts: "Honey, we have 4 Day Heathens Homecoming Tickets, and a reservation at the Holiday Inn Express (with breakfast....) all downhill at 2 AM from The Fabulous 40 Watt ....in Athens, Georgia!" What more could a wife want?

Ummmm, to be left alone at home yet again? At least I hope so, 'cause that's what my wife's getting for Valentine's Day yet again. I'm pretty sure it's a good deal for her.

I booked an Airbnb shortly after the announcement yesterday. It was pretty cheap and is only 1.5 miles from the venue. This will be my first homecoming, and I'm doing it the right way (all four nights).

Don't sweat it. I brought my son when he was 13yo, and they had the same 18+ note.

The prospect of 4 nights with HeAthens in Athens for multiple rock shows is a bright beacon of light in a dark and scary world.

Can't wait to see ya'll there! (and at Mama's Boy the next morning).

Anyone have luck with the 4-day package? I can get individual nights into my cart, but not the 4-day. Sounds so much more convenient. I tried right at 12 EST, so I guess I'd be surprised if they were truly sold out, but you never know.

Nabbed a 4-nighter as well. Airbnb booked. Circumstances dictate that I fly solo this year but Emily already made me promise to FaceTime her into line. Bring on the Rock Show.
