Excuse my ignorance of time zone-related announcements, but I assume this means tickets will be on sale at 9 AM central time?

Flights are killing me from Buffalo. Add in a hotel or air b n b and I may not have a wife when i come home :D

Cheaper to drive and sleep in the back of my SUV. Just pretend I'm following the Dead around. Just don't stand near me by night 3.....
I tried but I could not. Stand in her way.
She stepped over me and was gone.

Have you tried looking at flights from other airports w/in driving distance from your location e.g. Toronto? I don't know your market but I do know that prices can vary considerably if you can widen your search even a little bit.

That's a good question. I was going to respond that it means 10 am in each time zone but i realized that I don't actually know why I think that so hopefully someone with specific knowledge can provide definitive info.

I'm so damn pumped about finally getting to see the Dexateens! Also, Wes has outdone himself with this year's poster.

Hopefully the band is still going in 20 years when I retire, because that will be the only time mid-February will be open for me to see them
And I knew when I woke up Rock N Roll would be here forever

Out of curiosity, what type of job do you have that would prevent you from taking two vacation dates in mid February? Personally I wouldn’t mind some March dates, like they’ve done in the past.

Excited to finally get the announcement and yeah, the poster is killer.

Not exactly thrilled about the openers but whatever. Not sure why there need to be two openers on Friday and Saturday. Makes for a long night of you want to be in the front half of the room.

Also very perplexed as to why there’s not a multi-night pass option. It doesn’t even have to be about the club/promoter losing out on money (last year the four night pass was significantly cheaper than buying all four separate), just charge the same amount and make the transaction/buying process that much easier. Let’s be honest, a huge chunk of the crowd, if not the majority, will be there all three nights.

Minor quibbles aside,I can’t wait! let the countdown begin!!!

My initial thought was that the Stiff Boys might be a new/renamed backing band JJ is playing with. I've seen him with the Jackmormons. Could also be a different band altogether, albeit one with very minor internet presence if that's the case.
All it takes is one wicked heart, a pile of money, and a chain of folks just doing their jobs

Confirmed. It's Jerry's band for that date. https://www.jerryjoseph.com/tour/

I’m a college professor in a theatre department, and we always have a show opening on or around that weekend. It’s the worst possible time for me to try to get away

I get it. Life gets in the way. Wife's birthday is Feb. 15 and mine's the 23rd, and she runs a small indy one-person bookstore, so that's been her traditional post-holiday breather (plus a Valentine's day combo) and the only "us time" of the year. So not that I couldn't go, just never proposed it.
But I'm finally going this year. And she wants me to: I'm turning 60 and looking forward to my first Homecoming.

No luck. Refreshed right at 10am and got the message "At this moment there are not enough tickets available to fulfill your request."

Yeah. I got 2 Saturdays, but by the time I finished checking out for those, Thursday and Friday were gone. Guess I'll try again on Friday.
