40 bucks a ticket? You can tell Beasties haven't played for a while. Most bands are charging half that for tickets because of the shitty economy.

I hope the fine people of Baltimore & Ashville enjoy the shows. I however will not being enjoying it. :(

these shows are not for fans,they're for the band. they won't be playing any new shit and that's what hte real fans care about

I agree that $40 seems high in this economy, but it is a club show. They could charge $200 a ticket and sell out.

My cousin in N.C. is going to explode when I tell him the news.

How can I get them to play my local club?

5:45 PM Triple Trouble said...

Hmm...I haven't seen them at a club ever. Hot Sauce, what's your opinion. Should I go?

5:56 PM Stunt D said...

Good luck to everyone who wants tickets!

@Triple Trouble: You're asking me? I dunno.

If you're asking if a club show is better than a venue show, I would say that the setting doesn't matter with the Beastie Boys. For me, great Beastie Boys shows are created by the audience. The best shows I've attended were packed with Beastie heads. The audience at these two upcoming shows will surely be mostly locals -- some who will be big fans, some who are casual fans, and some idiots yelling "Play 'Fight for Your Right'" Which is not unlike most Beastie Boys shows.

I bet tickets will be a bitch to get. I don't even try for tickets any more because the whole system is so corrupt.

8:43 PM Penny said...

Triple Trouble - YOU SHOULD GO!!!

10:22 PM Kevin said...

Are they going to wear Zubaz pants? I'd pay to see that!

4:07 PM Mike said...

FUCK THAT TICKET SYSTEM! IT WAS BULLSHIT! THE PAGE WOULDN'T LOAD!!

4:09 PM Scott B said...

Did anyone get through? I couldn't get the Rams head website to work at all.

I'm very disappointed.

4:13 PM Missy said...

I didn't get thru either. :(

4:16 PM Kelly said...

No luck. My bf is going to be mad. He put me in charge of getting the RH tickets. The ticketing site kept timing out on me.

4:22 PM Fittonia said...

It doesn't surprise me no one is getting through. Fixed! It's all fixed. Most of the tickets are probably in the hands of the venue staff.

4:26 PM Penny said...

Did anyone get through? I wonder if Triple Trouble got tickets. I hope so.

I'm sorry for all the disappointed fans!!!

4:36 PM Kurtis said...

My cousin said he didn't get tickets. He's really bummed about it. I'm bummed for him.

4:47 PM Caroline said...

I tried to buy Orange Peel tickets and had no luck. The first page would not load. I wish I knew the secret to getting tickets because I always get locked out.

4:53 PM Hot Sauce said...

Yo-yo, people! Rams Head tickets are available again. If you want them, GO NOW!

4:58 PM Kelly said...

Thank you sooo much!!! You saved my relationship. I saw your message and got tickets for me and my bf!! I'm psyched to see the Beasties!!

5:01 PM Triple Trouble said...

I GOT A TICKET!

5:22 PM Fittonia said...

I'm glad to hear some fans got tickets. How small are the two clubs?

5:34 PM Hot Sauce said...

Orange Peel's capacity is 900 standing. Rams Head's capacity is somewhere in the 1500-1700 range.

7:42 PM Emily said...

Congrats to the lucky people who got tickets!

12:08 PM Murks said...

Does anyone have an extra ticket to the show in Baltimore? Email me at murks43@yahoo.com. Will pay top $$$!

People are begging for tickets on Craigslist. It's pathetic.
