    The Vic Theater is amazing, I saw Jonsi there in 2010 and it's still one of my favorite concert experiences from both the show I saw and the venue itself.

    My girlfriends sister lives fairly close to The Vic so I'm super excited to hopefully score tickets and come up to Chicago and not have to worry about booking a hotel or anything. Took tomorrow off in complete preparation for the massive amount of stress that will be trying to secure tickets.

    The Vic is a Chicago treasure and we've seen tons of shows there but it IS in The Land of No Parking and you DO have to know the secrets of scoping out a Good Spot. I highly recommend the elevated areas in front of the main floor bar on the left.

    Yeah I noticed that spot in a picture on google and have already mentally claimed that spot. Looks like pretty much the same type of prime spot we have at The Granada out here near KC. Assuming everyone is already going to bum rush the front of the stage I imagine it can't be TOO hard? If nothing else, and the entire venue is GA then I was going to shoot for front row balcony.

    The entire Vic is always GA. it's a pretty small main floor and the balcony, as mentioned, is really steep

    sometimes they do seating, and it seems like that might be the case for this show (i hope). thankfully, it's a short train ride from my place, and the area it's in has a lot of great shopping/dining. so if you're coming in from out of town, check out the stuff that's nearby!

    I grabbed 2 tickets. Thank goodness for my hi speed internet connection at work. See you all in Chicago!

    To all of you who didn't get tickets, don't worry. More will be available when they go on sale to the public. The same thing happened to me for the Wave Goodbye shows at the Aragon, but I got tickets a couple days later.

    I had the hardest time actually securing my tickets. It kept giving me the "not on sale" page and then FINALLY one of my like 50 windows I had open went through. I legit yelled "YES!!!!" super loud in apartment. Pretty sure everyone in the building heard me. Don't get too bummed, everyone who didn't get tickets. They've been opening the Ticketmaster presales up almost immediately after the HTDA presales sell out. I'd check back in a few minutes and I'm sure that presale will be live.

    they're already on sale through jam. click on the "on sale" button next to sold out. just got two. $11 more than it would have been through HTDA directly and no fancy shmancy tickets but at least i got them.

    Wasn't able to get the HTDA presale ones because the retarded store kept showing me a ticket, I'd hit BUY and then it told me I had nothing in my cart. Fuck's sake!
    I did get one through the etix/Jam mode so all is good but wow, that was intense and at times, hateful!

    I got in for the HTDA presale, selected my tickets and entered all my card info and after I hit purchase it said that the item was not available in the quantity I wanted. So unlike other ticket sites, once you get in the queue it doesn't save your spot. Someone must have snagged the tickets before I finished entering my info. Oh well, got the Jam presale right after. Just printed the tickets off at home.

    They really need to work on getting more tickets secured for these things. Only gonna get worse when the NIN pre-orders start up.

    Oh god I don't even wanna think about it... at least they are supposed to be arena shows. While smaller venues are quite nice, arenas mean more tickets.

    I'd like to think that Trent and Co would make Modlife adjust some things by the time the NIN tickets hit.

    true, when I saw Frank Black at the Vic and when I saw They Might Be Giants at the Vic, both had chairs on the main floor.

    Man, that went quicker than I expected, but I got mine. I noticed the presale link went up slightly before noon, although the tickets didn't show as available until that time. No problems selecting and checking out here.

    The Vic is a great venue, with the slope of the floor there's a good view from just about every place and I've never found it hard to get near the front even at a packed shows.
