Rochester! I might go to that.

i just hope that i have the money for that show and after last night i almost never want to go to a seated show again. standing up rocking out to him against a rail only five feet away from the guys was one of the greatest experiences i have ever had.

actually the place has a seating chart so yea it's pretty much confirmed that it's seating. shit.

Yeah, it was a screwup by ArtistArena... the company that does Ben's fanclub ticketing.

It IS Hard Rock Live... not House Of Blues.




Meanwhile, I just want to say hooray for Ben, for FINALLY giving Florida some much needed love.



Ben has avoided Florida like the plague for over a decade.


With the exception of 1 small club show in Gainesville 2002, Ben has not performed a FULL HEADLINING SHOW anywhere in Florida since 1997, on the Whatever and Ever Amen Tour!


His other Florida appearances have been short sets, as just an opening act  (for Tori Amos 2003), (for John Mayer 2007), and a short set at the Langerado festival in the Everglades 2008.


It's made me crazy, living here in South Florida... as every time Ben tours, I cross my fingers and hope for a Florida show, to only get passed over again, and again, and again, and again....

I'm definitely going to Boca Raton and Orlando....   (Possibly Tampa too, but that's up in the air.)
