If anyone needs the code for the live nation presale it's loyalfan. I thought this venue would be floor only, but there's GA pit in front of the floor section for $75.

Where ae you guys finding tickets to this show? Can't get in!

No problem man! Glad to hear that some of you guys were able to grab them as well. We're going to have a blast in the pit!  :king:

Hell yes! I subscribed to Live Nation in 2006 for king, been dealing with their pointless emails every other day and was going to delete it this week.  Thankfully I didn't, I got the email at 11:19 am and immediately bought them. I was stressing about the tickets since the news of the tour hit.
See you there!!

6-7 hours.  Better off going to MD (less than 3 hours from my door in South NJ) or NYC (2 hours away).

BTW I'll be going to both of those shows.  I would love to do more but sadly I can't take too many days off from my 9-5.

I did not think this was possible!  This is a dream come true!  Just got my front row balcony seat for the Moore Theater in Seattle!  King has not played that venue since the 1988 THEM tour!

I've been a huge fan of KD since I was 13 years old when someone sold me the tapes of Them, Conspiracy, and The Eye around '90 or '91. I now have every CD of course.

But I have NEVER seen the King live. And I thought I'd NEVER get a chance to unless I moved to Europe.  Even though I am more into industrial/harsh electronic now than metal, I have never lost my love for KD/MF music.

Thank you to all who made this happen!

Would love to hear "The Trees Have Eyes" or "Follow the Wolf" from HoG in addition to "At The Graves", "Eye of the Witch", and "Sleepless Nights" which luckily seem to be show staples.  :icon_mrgreen:

Wanted orchestra seating, but I didn't get in until late on the first day of the pre-sale and already orchestra was sold out to the last row of the theater unless I wanted extreme angle side seats.  But front row lower balcony should be pretty epic!  Amazed it sold so fast, but it's been almost 10 years since a US tour so I guess I should not be surprised!

Wait, thought it was GA seating? I got tickets to it also from that site with the jacket, didn't give me an option for reserved seats. Where did you get tickets from?

Actually getting frustrated now! I don't get how you can get reserved seats, but these so called VIP tickets with the jackets are GA seats? Can anyone give more information about this? I called the venue and got a recording. I'd rather sit in the balcony than have to fight off a thousand kids trying to push their way up front. Yeah I don't care if I sound old, I'll mosh with anyone at a Slayer show, King is a different type of concert for me, and I don't want to spend all night pushing and shoving.

So any info would be really welcome right about now.

oKAY EXCITED AGAIN! Sorry for my crankiness, I have a wife with Asthma and COPD, and have to be careful what kind of crowd we have to deal with when going to these shows. I guess the VIP tickets (I assume) are in the orchestra section for my venue, which is a pretty small area kinda, so shouldn't have to deal too much with the pushing and shoving. I was thinking the whole bottom floor area was going to be GA, and then it would make for a bad time. So now I am uber excited once again and can't fucking wait for this show!  :king:

I'm new here, cannot wait for the Atlanta show.  Opening night!  Does anyone have ideas about what the set list will look like for this tour?  I read that they are bringing the full stage production, which is awesome, but I'm anxious about what songs will be performed.  I'm kind of ridiculously giddy about this concert right now, pardon by fanboy-ism.

I thought I saw someone say it would be similar to what they did in Europe last year. I have only watched a couple clips from those shows because I was waiting to see if they were coming here, so not sure exactly which songs they played. I don't want to know though, I would like to be surprised for this show.

I got my tickets for the Atlanta show this morning and I couldn't be happier. It's amazing that a couple of the shows, including Atlanta, are already close to selling out. Not that it comes as any surprise. Now, the wait begins...

Yeah they seemed to be going pretty quick here in Seattle also. I was contemplating getting some seats on top of the GA VIP tickets I got yesterday, but decided against it. Was shocked at how far back they already were for the five minutes I was looking. Hope it's sold out, King sure as shit deserves it!

YES!!! 9 years it's been since I've seen the King live!!!! I got my Dallas tix, bringing my two younger brothers this time. Anyone else going from here that want to hang during the show? Gonna try to hit up Priest the next night in Austin, if I can make it. I'm in the best shape of my life now, thanks to BJJ, so I got GA!! Bring it on youngsters, you're not getting past me at the front!!!!!!

I only found out about the VIP thing after I bought my ticket through the stgpresents.org site which uses tickets.com.  When I looked at the VIP page, I saw no mention at all of what kind of tickets I'd get since Seattle had only the first type of package available.  Since the venue tickets were assigned seats, I didn't trust I'd get proper tickets with the VIP package for Seattle. But now you're telling me there's going to be a special VIP section right in front of the stage?  Now I'm jealous. :)

But hey, like you said, I don't want a mosh either and having a guaranteed first row bird's eye view should be pretty cool, right?  I also got a parking deal on the ticket page so it cost me $60 total with parking and fees.  But I don't get the cool jacket! Oh well, I bought my first KD shirt to wear to the show, so if you see some guy with the "The Eye" shirt in the lower balcony, that's me!

You're lucky your wife likes KD too.  Mine just tolerates it and won't be going.  But there's still time to make a fan of my 3 year old. :)
