I'm going to guess based on other will call experiences.

I'm pretty sure the will call will be separate from the lineup, so I suppose you will arrive at the venue, go to the willcall, print your tickets and wait in line.

If you get there at 6:30 i'm sure it's fine but there might be a lineup at the willcall

 

Actually, my experience with this type of show is that it is not separate - everyone waits in line, goes up to the table, shows ID, gets ticket (which is really just a technicality only because NY State bars paperless shows), probably gets it scanned right there (or maybe not scanned at all), and goes right in. Otherwise, it makes it easier for the scalpers this is trying to prevent.

This is more what I was expecting. I don't think we will ever be "in control" of our tickets to prevent scalping. I figured if I get there a little after the doors open the initial rush of those who have been camped out will have died down.

 

I'm assuming there is no opening act and that Muse will come on sometime around 8:30 so getting there around 6:45 should give plenty of time.

Well I have been more than abused in an attempt to get a ticket. It has been rough, especially craigslist my lord what people!

If anyone has an extra ticket I live and work in NYC, and can be at the venue within an hour. I am very reliable and would be happy to pay asking price plus extra. Thanks for the consideration

i've still yet to attend a legit concert without an opening act, even when none was mentioned. i would expect someone to open.

 

it looks like the "club night" which is every friday night in the grand ballroom with doors at 10pm no longer has tickets available, so I am assuming they have canceled it for the Friday that muse will be there. if this is the case, i could imagine a very normal stage time of 9-9:30pm for muse.

 

i am hoping this is correct as I will be picking up my friend (and ticket holder) from JFK at 5pm. :LOL:

You may very well be right. I would assume the normal curfew of 11 will be in effect (although this is technically a "club" so maybe there are different rules).

 

I've definitely attended concerts without opening acts, Paul McCartney and Billy Joel come to mind, so it is not unheard of.

 

Regardless, I would love to fast forward to next week, these days are moving too slowly.

The Psycho tour had ID check, then step through to ticket collection (a print-out from a machine that reminded me of buying a train ticket from the guard on board) and bag-check all at doors, not before.

I went to a theater show with The Killers at the start of their last cycle - also one of these special kinda of smaller pre-release/release shows - and they didn't have an opener. Also Madonna and Springsteen in recent years have had no openers, and it's looking like U2 may not have any on their upcoming dates (well the tour starts in two weeks and no one has been announced).

interesting. has muse played without an opener? i can't remember a time in recent memory they have, but it doesn't mean it won't happen.

 

basically, i just want them to hold off until 9pm. :LOL:

are they really going to keep the club night on? that would mean doors for that at 10pm, limiting muse time and meaning they could go on early. really hope this isn't the case.

I've been to shows there where there was overlap with club night and other bands going on in the studio space, didn't affect either.

Look at the poster, Marlin Room, Balcony Lounge and Studio are only places that appear to have anything.

I doubt they could successfully have a Muse gig, clear it out and be ready for 10pm even if Muse went on at 8 with no opening act.

Given no Piano on Psycho tour, I'm guessing Sing for Absolution, Blackout, The Small Print, Thoughts of Dying a Atheist are fair options.

those are other things. the girls and boys club night is in the grand ballroom usually and according to the calendar, but hopefully it just happens later or in another part of the venue.

Pretty sure Blackout and Endlessly have never been played in the US before, or very rarely. Those would be pretty epic and long overdue.

I was there Saturday for The Used and club night was going on downstairs, you could hear the music a bit when it was quiet and you could feel the vibration but it really wasn't bad and that show got out at 11 so even though it's a club night it should be fine

win iHeartRadio tickets

 

Are you Muse's biggest fan?

 

Fill out survey from Q104.3 to win pair of tickets to iHeartRadio performance

 

When you click on the Muse link at the top of the page, it takes you to some appliance store's FB page. I'm thinking there's a hack....
