Announcement aftermath

No Filter Tour 2020

1 day after the anouncement, it’s all checking hotels and flights for the fans and waiting for the pre-sales!

NEWS: Ticketmaster has updated the presale dates: those seen yesterday, pointing to February 11 have been deleted. It’s only February 12 and 14 now!

Ahead of us is another 15 cities tour of the best band in the world you could possibly be a fan of. Seriously!
As before, they will (hopefully) keep their sound mixed with the guitars way up front. And as soon as Keith comes out of the backstage shadow, with his green Tele ready, and as soon as he hits the first chord and your ears ring, then you know what time it is! I speak from experience.

So go and get your ticktes!

Tickets go on general sale Friday, Feb. 14

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, February 12 at 10am local time through Thursday, February 13 at 10pm local time.

pacificsandiego.com says: The pre-sale passwords are as follows: MISSYOU for SDCCU Stadium; RESCUE for AEG; EMOTIONAL for Ticketmaster; SHATTER for participating radio stations; and IHEART for participating IHEART radio stations.

Don’t forget the LUCKY DIP tickets: these are cheap tickets (~ $60,-) which are sold pairwise. On the day of the gig you show your receipt and your ID card and get the pair. The lucky part: until then you don’t know, which seat you will have, i.e. where. Could be nosebleed of even the Pit or anything in between. That’s the deal. I love them!

Interview by Jim Kerr with Keith (q1043.iheart.com) – they also got a contest running with a quite impressive package (airfare, hotel, signed crew-jacket, meet&greet with M&K plus you introduce them to the crowd!)

Quick hurry for the hotels if you plan to travel – prices could rise around these dates… 😉
