Florida is home base for TP/Heartbreakers, tons of TP fans there....no shocker.

If the Mac had taken in Bob Seeger their Michigan sales would be through the roof too.

Nah
Most Heartbreakers fans are so opposed to Mike joining the Mac. Everyone on a Heartbreaker page was saying how much Fleetwood Mac sucked. I get it, two different kinds of music. Central and Northern Florida maybe I would agree with your theory.

You cant even get any pre-sale seats together. ALL of those high priced tickets ARE SOLD OUT. When you check the arena for available tickets ONLY 4 remain (only 4 dots on the screen). And the reason they are still available is because they are single seats
Well, now that the full sale is up, there are literally entire sections of available seats in Sunrise, so... pre-sale might have done well because they limited it greatly?

Who knows. The picture you posted just shows the back of the arena. For tickets just going on sale, its a brisk sale so far. I just cant believe the prices. So much more expensive than On With The Show. I found my seats from 2013 and they are hundreds of dollars more

Good thing Lindsey won't be there then! The whole front row sitting and snoring.

Yeah, I mean here's one that shows the full floor and the other side sections. I'm just not convinced it's selling spectacularly well, especially considering the fact that the gray dots don't necessarily mean "seat sold." Even if I were going to see this tour, the last tour taught me it's smart to wait for the ticket drops, which inevitably come about a week out from the show date. It's nerve racking, but it was usually worth it.

Here's a link to the Sunrise page, if anyone is interested in seeing for themselves. I've looked at a few venues so far, and they all kind of look like this to some extent. I don't think it means they're not selling... I mean, people have almost a year to buy tickets in some cases.

I wish they made the Platinum seats a different color as they do the resale seats. I got all excited earlier thinking there was a 13th row center pair of seats at face value because they were blue like everything else. Nope, not so much.

For tickets that just went on sale, its pretty good IMHO. Stevie sold out arenas during 24k Gold tour and the first week of ticket sales had far fewer tickets sold.

Unhappy

Has Lindsey ever filled an arena? If I remember correctly his shows seem to always take place in casinos, wineries, school auditoriums, and tiny club type venues. Something tells me FM won’t be feeling any jealousy towards him and his “small machine” career any time in the future, honestly.

Well, since you asked, the rest of us were talking about price drops and available tickets at different venues when you rolled in with your snide remarks.

Yeah we talk about numbers because we have numbers. If the person you were a fan of had her kind of “numbers”, you’d probably be a “numbers person” too.
