I don't know, I'm just a bit confused with the paperless tickets, are they going to be emailed to us?

 

The term "paperless tickets" is a rather stupid one. Usually what happens with those is you go to the box office and show them your credit card that you used and they, wait for it, print off tickets for you on paper haha. But who knows how it'll work for this one. Every venue approaches it differently. My example was just my experience with paperless ticketing. So to answer your question, no, they won't be emailed to you.

Tried to call them today to no avail. Asked for will call, got redirected to a voice mail, left a message and got nothing. Called to ask about security and no one picked up (though it was around lunch time). I'll try again tomorrow. I'm giving up on my camera. It's brand new and I don't want security deciding to change the rules as we're going in. If anyone else can get through, let all of us know.

Nah, you're fine. It's a stupid term.

 

Does anyone know what the parking situation is like? Last time I was at UC was when Muse was there and I don't remember the price of parking or if we even paid for parking or where we parked for that matter...

If you all are worried about Will Call tickets I will trade my 300 level tickets straight up and you can have the tickets before that Monday. Seems reasonable.

 

As for parking, there are lots on Madison that probably cost $20-30. I would just pay that because venturing off in that area can get you into some bad neighborhoods. Traffic is pretty congested post-show.

The whole point of the will call tickets is to prevent the tickets from being scalped, which is why they have our names and information attached to them. Plus, most of the will call tickets are GA, so how is trading a GA ticket for a 300 level ticket "reasonable"? I'm not worried at all about not having a ticket, I have my ID, my credit card, and the confirmation email printed. If for some reason I don't have a ticket, they will have to take me out of there in a police car. The worry comes from when we can actually pick up our tickets.

Pretty sure he was being sarcastic.

Okay, so I got through to the box office, but I'm not sure I trust the woman I spoke to. First she said we'd be able to get Will Call GA tickets at 5 p.m. with the gates opening for the show at 5:30. Then she said we could pick up our tickets as early as 4:30. I explained that I bought them through Muse's presale, but I'm not 100% sure she knew what I was saying. :( Anyone else have luck getting through? I might try and call again just to see if they give me the same info...

Just talked to a lady at the Will Call office, explained that I got my ticket through the presale and that I just wanted to see when the office will open to pick them up. Got the magic time of...

 

11 am.

 

If that's true, then we should have plenty of time to get our tickets and keep our places in line.

What gate are we supposed to line up outside of? I don't want to be waiting outside of the wrong one only to find out there is a full line at the proper entrance.

Very excited for this. This is my third Muse concert, but the first in my hometown of Chicago. We have seated tickets, but are also Will Call. Like the rest of you, here's hoping the line is not too bad so we can get inside in time!

I remember there is a parking lot (more than one, actually) right next to the United Center, but I wouldn't drive if I could help it. Parking will most likely be like $25-$40 wherever you wind up, you'll have to contend with all that traffic leaving at once at the end of the night, and also they are expecting snow in the evening so that may further complicate things. I guess if you don't have a choice but to drive there maybe someone else can give you better instructions, but personally we are taking the CTA Blue Line and exiting at the Medical District stop. About a 0.5 mile walk from there.
