No honey, they don't.

I want the Beasties to play a benefit concert for ME!

I agree that the ticket price is high in these hard times, but it is a benefit show.

The venue is very small, with a capacity of 1,200. Consider the venue's size when deciding if the show is worth $75 plus fees.

I wish I lived in DC. I would pay $100 to see the Beastie Boys. They never come to where I live :(

Any chance they will do a Pauls Boutique show?

@Saber: Only in a world called Fantasyland.

I can't wait for the show. This could be one of the best of the Inauguration. And the 9:30 Club is my favorite venue!

The show is sold out. The ticket sale was a joke. I was on my computer and phone at 10am and couldn't get through. No Beastie Boys for me in my hometown. SUCKS!

Did any fans get tickets? Both my brother and I tried to buy via the web and we could not get by the first web page. We missed the Richmond show. We thought the 930 show was our second chance. :(

I had no luck either. If anyone has two extra tickets, PLEASE EMAIL ME at heder14a@yahoo.com. January 19 is my wife's birthday and she really wants to see BeasTie Boys and Sheryl Crow.

I want to know who got tickets because none of my friends or family did.

something smells fishy

Corruption in Washington? Never!

1:24 PM Shelly said...

No ticket for me :(

1:59 PM Hot Sauce said...

Sorry to those who didn't get tickets. You should voice your disappointment on Beastieboys.com, where the band might see it.

I got 2 tickets. Unfortunately I have people coming to town and needed 4, so I will let you guys know if I cannot use them.

I'm looking for tickets. Please email ginacat@merckle.com. Thanks!
