Since the Asheville show doesn't have its own thread and I don't have the setlist, I decided not to start one for this silly question...

At the Asheville show Ben said that Zak and Sara was inspired by a short story (or a collection of short stories by some author).  I couldn't quite make out what he said.

Does anyone know?
I know it's Pit.

The fan club presale starts Feb 25 at 3PM EST per the People's Front of Judea.

Thank you! I did not know there was a fan club presale until I read this thread. I just bought tickets :]

Took some front row center tickets today for the Boca Raton, FL show.  I am most happy.


The weird thing is, there was no announcement whatsoever about the Boca Raton presale from the fanclub... 

I just happened to check the ticketing link again for Orlando, when I saw that the Boca show was going onsale at 3pm...

There was no public announcement about the Nashville show either. They seem to be lagging.

I feel I may have to give in and buy a ticket to see this show since I missed Atlanta.  If they don't sell out.... the presale already has.

yea boz said he got a ticket on the far right as a fan club ticket. like one of the worst in the house almost. i'd rather sit on the balcony than have that. i'm going to try and get my dad to buy me a ticket tomorrow.

Well I wouldn't say worst in the house, it could definitely be worse I think.  But based off of the Ryman's seating chart I am way right of the stage and may have an obstructed view.  I'm usually very satisfied with the fan club pre-sale hook-up, this one was just not quite as sweet.

well personally for me i hate far seats. i'll take a seat in the back and be in the middle of those sections than rather the extreme far right or left of the building near the front. obstructed views suck.

Doesn't seem to look like there is going to be one, most likely since he was just here in October.

I should be at the Omaha and Des Moines shows.

I can't remember. He said it in Milwaukee in 2006. That's all I remember about it.
You have the set list from that show? It's missing.

Lamesauce. I've seen him 4 times (twice last year) and I'm itching to see him again!

Maybe he'll announce an Arizona date while I'm there for Spring Break.  ;D
