Probably not- I'll be in SoCal. Wasn't my favorite venue, anyway. But, if somehow I ended up visiting that area... I'd go.

I originally wanted to go to this one, but I ended up getting tickets for the Costa Mesa concerts.

Tried to get tickets, but it wasn't worth it to me to sit way back in row T. If I could have gotten closer I would have. It's hard to get on the computer these days, Mr. Forgetful shadows me all the time.

As I recall, the venue is pretty small and they had screens with a live-feed close-up video... so I don't think row T would have been that bad.

Indeed they do. They have closed-circuit feeds on screens far enough back that you can even get a good view of the show (on screens, of course, but still the show) from the gondolas up in the air on that wire (Disneyland used to call them "The Skyway").

Of course, to see the whole show you'd have to ride the gondolas over and over and over again, and I think it's like $3 a ride, and you'd still only see bits of the show because the concert venue is only on one end of the Skyway route. Row T is better.

One cool thing about Sacramento is the intense response to the line "This poodle is the governor of California" in the J-Simp interview.

Gave in, got the row T tickets. Meh. I would have held out, but don't see any other Northern California venues materializing so far.

Has anyone received their tickets for this yet? Because I haven't received mine and it's less than two weeks away.
