Just curious if even one fan on here was successful.

No but StubHub has gone down considerably from the $350 someone posted above.  I may bite the bullet now at $195.

FWIW I think I paid close to $100 per for floors (face) at Forest Hills last summer, while not MMJ, this is a pretty cool experience.

When are we going to get a serious tour announcement. Seems like it should be soon.

Not sure if this will work, but if anyone has an extra ticket, please let me know.

I live in Park Slope and free tomorrow night.

Haha, good call.  I didn't pull the trigger.  It's down to $120 now.

I was one of the lucky ones.  Scored a single ticket during the on-sale.  Looking forward 2 tonight.

Have a great show to all who got tix.

I called the venue and no tickets for sale at the door.

I'm still going to try to see if I can get one outside.

Unreal show.  The new album sounds amazing, and I'm excited to hear alot of it again live.  Jim actually made a full-on rock album.  And the 4 song encore were reworked songs from his previous albums to make them fit more with the tone of the new album.

Lots of guitar solo/jammy tunes or more alternative rock style tunes?

What did he play for the encore?
Was that cellphone policy strictly enforced? I assume we won't be getting any audio from this gig  :angry:

Encore was 4 songs:

Same Old Lie
Here in Spirit
A New Life
State of The Art

The tunes were much more jammy, but the solos were heavier, if that makes sense.

No Phones were strictly enforced.  Also, around 10:30, tickets became available again at the front door, so for those people seeing him in LA, don't give up

Wow, what a night! Not what I was expecting at all. I was envisioning the psychedelic/soul style of his previous solo albums but these songs were heavy! You know when MMJ get into that Sabbath/Danzig style of headbanger jams? There was plenty of that. Who knows how the recordings will sound but tonight was a pleasant surprise. Such a small venue too, easily the most intimate venue I've seen him play.

Very exciting!  I'm ready for a heavy, guitar filled solo Jim.  I liked the last two albums, but this one sounds more Jacket-like.  My DVR is set to record Colbert tonight.

Thanks for the reports.  I'm glad some of you guys got in hopefully without resorting to Stubhub.  I hate letting the brokers win, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.   And it would be a bigger loss to miss the show entirely.   I paid extra for a Johnny Brendas show in Philly when Regions just came out...... totally worth it.

I am so unbelievably happy with this album - it's perfect.  scorching crazy horse fuzz and distortion on many songs and Jim reworked much of EE into this arrangement to make those songs so much heavier and guitar driven - imagine if Radiohead had released Kid A first, and later released The bends and reworked Kid A materials to fit the sound of the Bends.  minds a blown!

great night - he looked really comfortable - there was a who's who of industry there to take it all in (Clinch, Fricke, Tucker and his wife Laura, and even Chris Long bobbing his head up in the mezzanine)
What's in here won't disappear

So who else is in the band? I read Seth was on bass. Dave on drums? Who is that second guitar?

Everything about this new album sounds great, now the 5 week wait!

Yea i'm getting pretty amped up for the new album/corresponding tour.
I personally loved his first two solo releases and if this one has more of a jacket feel then even better.
