CalProg Tickets Go On Sale THIS Saturday April 10
« on: April 07, 2004, 09:14:51 am »
Yes, we got a late start getting the event under way due to extensive negotiations to bring you the strongest bill possible. I know that many of you had thought that CalProg might not come to fruition, but now that all systems are go, you've probably noticed that we've ramped up at a blazing pace.

Based on input from those who wish to attend, we have been made known that people want/need to make their summer plans soon in order to take full advantage of any travel "book-ahead" deals and to assure availability at their destination hotels, etc. In response, we at CalProg have decided not to offer tickets staggered by Tier over a 3
week period, but instead to offer all tickets starting this Saturday April 10 at 8:00am.

Tickets can only be purchased on-line using a credit card or a Pay-Pal account. There are 3 tiers of tickets:

Patron: $100 - Front row, center section. Includes special laminated pass with lanyard and unique commemorative gift.
Premium Seating: $65 - The next four rows, center section
Standard Seating: $55 - The remaining seats

There will be a $3.50 shipping and handling fee associated with each ORDER (not ticket).

Seats will be distributed in the order that orders are received. In other words, the earlier you buy, the closer you will be. There has been a great deal of buzz about this show, and it's anyone's guess as to how quickly tickets will go. Here's a couple of things to consider:

1) There's only 390 seats available (10 are used up by the sound system).
2) NearFest sold out in 30 minutes!
3) Neal Morse and his special touring band sold out this venue in November. Please talk to anyone who attended that show about the magic of the performance, and the family atmosphere in the audience.
4) This is a very strong bill. There are no "bar bands" (bands that you'll want to be sitting at the BAR instead of listening to)!

The lineup once again:

MIKE KENEALLY BAND
ENCHANT
IZZ
ERIK NORLANDER
NEAL MORSE

Thanks to everyone for being so patient with us, and for helping to support this very special music. Together we are ushering in the new age of progressive rock! Happy ticket hunting.

I don't know about you, is anyone gonna be buying a Premium ticket?
I wanna get one of those, but I don't wanna sit there all by myself!

Are the seats numbered? or is it first come-first serve?

Seats are numbered. And they will be distributed in the order orders are received. These seats are so close you'll be part of the show. Doug, John, Neal and Mike will all sweat on you, that's how close they are!

I meant that as a good thing.  ::)

Reminds me of a story, all you old time wrestling fans will appreciate this. I used to go to the wrestling matches in Chicago back in the early 80's, before the WWF took over everything. Anyway, one of our favs was The Baron (Baron von Raschke, who in reality was a dentist in Milwaukee, but I digress). Of course, the Baron's signature move was The Claw, a submission move that amounted to him putting his hand over the opponents face and squeezing until he slowly lost consciousness, like most of you who are still reading this story. Anyway, this particular day, we had seats right on the aisle where the wrestlers entered and exited, and as The Baron walked by, my buddy gave HIM the Claw, right on top of his head and wouldn't let go. When he finally relinquished his hold, he turned to the crowd (after clawing me of course) and screamed "I'VE GOT THE SWEAT OF THE BARON!", and all these kids were running up to us because they wanted to touch the Baron's sweat. True Story!

Jees PJ,
Sounds like its going to be a great event. I'd luv to be there. The price of the ticket is no problem. Its the return airfair from Australia that's the killer.

Hope its a huge success.
What, who me!
