This is awesome, but I'm a little upset they've only given us a week. I'm also not sure I like the idea of all tickets going on sale at once. Wish they'd say the price of the dream tickets too. But, This is still good news!!!

I agree. It IS short notice.

Wow!!!I just got the email too. I'm not sure what to think. I'm in shock. This is going to be a HUGE challenge. But it looks like we'll get our HCC preferential treatment, whatever that means, lol.

OMG! And with Steve Winwood! :045:

Haha, Ref, I know what you mean. I'm thinking Denver (especially if the concert was at Red Rocks, which it probably isn't) or maybe Texas or Arizona, but the Gorge would be nice...

I hope some Farmers will come to the Atlanta show, please let me know so we can say "Howdy!" Also I hope to go to the Charlotte show, fingers crossed...

The show here will be at a new ampitheatre on the north side of town which opens in May, it is a gorgeous venue.

Oh and BTW, remember hubby who was so pissy about Tom? Well, he's super excited and last night even DREAMED about going to the concert! (I think I've done my job well!)
