What's New for March 1998

Tuesday, March 31, 1998:
PJ To Play TFC, "Wishlist" b-side: the new Rumor Pit confirms both of these. In News.

Boston and Dallas: Updated information on these ticket sales in Going Mobile. [Thanks to Matt Pfeffer and Shaun Hickson]

Ticket info: Full details for the Albuquerque sale; there's also an 8-ticket limit for the Missoula show, which is gonna guarantee that more scalpers than fans get tickets. Sheesh. Also, if you're buying Philly tickets, go check out the entry to see our advice about a possible second date being added. In Going Mobile. [Thanks to Jett and Chris Doerr]

Check out Caryn's tale about her trek to the DMW concert (with photos).

Monday, March 30, 1998:
On-Sale Dates Announced: In Going Mobile. [Thanks to Patrick Tremaglio, Brian Gebhardt, Ryan Chalberg, Chris Sieling, Daniel Cavazos, Amy, FC416, Adam Polson]

Regarding the third LA date, we've taken it off the calendar because it is not definite at this time; the LA tickets didn't sell as fast as expected, so they're re-evaluating whether to add that date, another additional CA date, or perhaps another San Diego date if needed. When we know, we'll post.

As for the second Seattle date, well, that's been in the Seattle entry for quite some time; it's just not on the calendar because it hasn't been announced and it will probably be based on demand for the first show.

Setlist and notes from last night's DMW show are in the Concert Chronology. Look for a longer review and photos later tonight (if Caryn doesn't fall asleep at her desk after catching a 6:30am flight home from LA).

Sunday, March 29, 1998:
Not in Our Name, Dead Man Walking: The Concert, L.A.
Ed and Jeff are confirmed to perform at the show AND will be included in the cybercast tonight. More info at the Not in Our Name site.

Note: Earlier today these sites were requesting a username and password. You should be able to access these now; be sure to clear your browser's cache. They have updated the web sites!
Saturday, March 28, 1998: MSG, E. Rutherford, Chicago, E. Troy and LA tickets on sale
Everything seems to have sold out by now, although we keep hearing random reports of single seats available via TM Online. *shrug*

However, it looks as though there will be a second Alpine Valley show; we have no information on the on-sale date, we know many of you in the area got shut out -- we will post that information as soon as it's available to us.

For those of you not participating in the ticket frenzy, why not check out the wonderful new sound files from the Australian shows:

Linked from each show's listing in the Concert Chronology.[Many thanks to our pal, the fabulous Olly Sharwood!]

Portland update: we've got a tentative on-sale date listed. You know where. =)

Missoula update: Lots of important information regarding the Missoula date, including special information about ticket sales for Eastern Washington fans; this involves a voucher system so if you're in the Spokane area, please do check out Going Mobile now. Also added a non-888 charge by phone number for the Canadians planning on going to this show. [Thanks to Kyle Kasman and Jack Long]

Second MSG Date Added: Meadowlands and MSG one sell out (though there may still be random single seats left) and a second MSG show added for 9/11 (and is probably sold out now).

Caryn is off to LA tonight to see the "Dead Man Walking" concert; look for setlists and reviews on Monday!

Friday, March 27, 1998: St. Louis tickets on sale @ 5pm CST
Anyone getting a little antsy with tix for a few shows going on sale today and tomorrow??? Here's a distraction, perhaps ... some new soundbytes, linked from each show's listing in the Concert Chronology:
  • "Push Me Pull Me" improv from Sydney 3/11/98
  • "The Real Me" intro to "I Got Shit" from Sydney 3/12/98 [Many thanks to our pal, the fabulous Olly Sharwood!]

    Missoula update: on-sale date in Going Mobile. [Thanks to Kyle Matteson]

    Philly update: Apparently the on-sale date will be announced on Monday at 5pm, according to Y100. [Thanks to Michael Stevick]

    Some new hints and tips added to the Road Trip Survival Guide. [Thanks to Alex Miller and Jean]

    Alpine Valley: got a reminder that the ticket prices for this venue include parking, which could explain why base price is so much higher than the other shows. [Thanks to Josh Jordan]

    Philly announcement did not happen today, for the record. [Thanks to John Reynolds]

    Atlanta and Pittsburgh: on-sale dates in Going Mobile. [Thanks to Chris Blackburn and Jason Niner]

  • Thursday, March 26, 1998
    Alpine Valley update: There will be a phone block for this show as well, outside of IN, IL and WI. Also, there's a discrepancy in the base ticket price; could be as high as $28.75 before "convenience charges." Plan accordingly. [Thanks to Dave Photenhauer]

    LA tix info: The ticket limit has changed from two tickets per show per person to a four ticket limit. [Thanks to ecg]

    Added some more questions to the 1998 Tour FAQ.

    On-sale info: We expect announcements of on-sale dates for Missoula and Philadelphia tomorrow. If these actually happen, check this page (or Going Mobile) for updates by noon PST. [Note: the announcements may not happen, we're just trying to give you as much warning as possible; however, these are announcements of on-sale dates, not the actual sales, so no need to panic yet] [Thanks to dave and Derek]

    Note about Chicago sales: The 15-minute block is not on all out-of-state calls; states in the "region" (such as NW Indiana) are not affected by this. If you're in a neighboring state, call the TM hotline you plan to call NOW and ask them. [Thanks to Matt Camp]

    Andrew McDougall has scanned nearly every poster from the New Zealand and Australia shows. See our memorabilia section. [Many thanks Andrew!]

    Wednesday, March 25, 1998
    MSG and E. Rutherford info: If you're planning on waiting on line for these tickets, check out Going Mobile for important info about wristbands and TM. [Thanks to Justin Luzier]

    LA Forum info: The 13th and 14th will be the first shows to go on sale, and "if" those sell out (HA! - in other words, what are they thinking, OF COURSE those shows will sell out!), then the 11th will go on sale.

    Disclaimer: Five Horizons is not responsible for getting you tickets to a show. We provide you with as much information as we possibly can, but then it's up to you to call the venue, call TM, visit the web site, etc. to get the information you personally need in order to buy tickets -- that's why we have as much info in Going Mobile as possible, to empower you individually to be able to get tickets. We're getting a little tired of the nasty email expecting us to do everything for some people.

    Tuesday, March 24, 1998
    On-Sale Mania Continues: Kansas City added to the list (check Going Mobile). [Thanks to Mike Baker]

    Also, we know you don't want to hear this, but the site will probably be down tomorrow morning while we move from slug to flashflood (that's the names of the servers). Hell, we don't want to hear it. But don't panic if you can't get to the site around 11am PST tomorrow. We're just getting so much traffic that our service provider needs to move us to our own server...

    On-Sale Date Mania: LA (two dates), St. Louis, MSG, E. Rutherford, and more details about the Chicago and E. Troy sales this Saturday: In Going Mobile. [Thanks to: Robert Bellarn, Darlene Patten, Susan Safren, John Reynolds, Aaron, Matt Jorgenson, Ronney, Andrew McArthur, Evan Jacobs]

    We've tried to list the appropriate time zones in Going Mobile, but if we didn't, assume that it's local time!

    Just in: Oliver Sharwood's review of night #2: Brisbane!

    And, in addition to the March Song of the Month, we've added an additional sound file: the intro to "Habit" from Maui 2/20/98 ... linked from that listing in the Concert Chronology.

    Saturday, March 21, 1998
    Yet another on-sale date: Albuquerque. In Going Mobile. [Thanks to justin]

    Also, I've color-coded the GM calendar so it's easier to see what shows have on-sale dates announced; unannounced shows are still blue, while those shows with on-sale dates are now green. Go look, you'll see. Hope this helps some.

    Two new links added to Essential PJ Web Resources. People clamoring for the 1998 setlist stats would be well advised to check this out.

    Wondering what's up with Song of the Month? Well, we just got our source tape in with the song we're doing. Look for it early next week; we promise to have April's song up much quicker (since we've already narrowed it down to two things!).

    A preliminary setlist from the first Brisbane show is in the '98 Concert Chronology). [Thanks to Alun, Tony F and Dave.] Apparently security was rather intense, including metal detectors, making things difficult for tapers.

    We are aware that there seem to be some, erm, discrepancies with a few of the Aussie setlists. And yeah, lots of people have sent in corrections -- the problem is, the corrections contradict each other! =) So, we're going to leave things the way we think they are, and wait for the tapes to give us the final word. But THANK YOU to everyone sending us info, especially the extremely excited Aussie contingent!! =)
