Only if you want to sit wayyyyy back...front row is $425.00 (say what?), five rows back is $250.00 (excuse me?), eleven rows back $205.00 (really?), thirteen rows back $180.00 (come on now), Fifteen rows back $113.00, $64.00 for seats nineteen rows back (what's the point?) These decent seats are way inflated for Jackie tickets.
That is Washington, DC for you. Soaking people for money!
Could go to Lexington MA, Cary Hall on Sunday, December 15th for a 3:00 PM concert and have gotten front row seats for $89. Still decent one left at that price.
Or go to the Phoenix, AZ, Celebrity Theatre on Saturday, October 5th for an 8:00 PM concert and gotten front row seats for $95. Again, still some decent seats left.
Or check out Las Vegas, NV, Reynolds Hall on Sunday, October 13th for an 7:00 PM concert and gotten front row seats for $99. Still can get center 7th row seats for $99.
Or go to any number of other venues around the country.
Hell at $850 for two front row tickets you could fly to London RT for as low as $472 for two, have enough for a hotel room (as low as $16 a night) and be able to get two front row tickets for $268 to see The Phantom of the Opera. If my math is correct, a 3-night stay in London with flight and theater tickets for 2 could run you as low as $788. Ergo, you would spend $62 less. Pretty crazy.
But that is Washington, DC for you with those politicians, their aides, hanger-ons and lobbyists driving up the prices.
Cancelled, alas. concerts1.livenation.com/event/150056D6FE6F5E9B Found out via a refund notice from the parking reservation; I gather that the ticket, being also an online (or phone) purchase, will be refunded automatically. In-person refunds have to be obtained at the point-of-sale, from what I've read.
LiveNation did not provide any further explanation.
I guess one could say Jackie is not a big enough draw for Live Nation and the theater. Cheaper to cut bait than to get soaked with bigger losses. Too bad. But it is what it is.
Two cancellations for October at the beginning of the Debut tour with zilch info from Jackie's camp. Wonder what is going on?
Thanks to the "price it as high as people will pay" model of LiveNation and/or TicketMaster these days, the prices for good seats were crazy. That probably didn't help. But unless someone saw the seating charts shortly before the cancellation, we don't know if sales was the factor.
Rarely does anyone give a reason, and "Jackie's camp" is certainly not better about that than most. It may be that we'll see in the timeframe of cancellations, whether anything else came up instead. Or maybe not.
I wonder if her new songs aren't getting the interest that her old songs were. I want to see her in concert, but would much rather hear the older stuff than the Debut broadway songs.
If you check the set lists of recent concerts (assuming someone posted them), you'll see that she still sings a number of the older songs, although of course not all of them. And I think most people would like at least two or three on the new album (for example, Somewhere, Once Upon a December, and A Million Dreams), even if the rest are less to their taste.
rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner a couple of hours ago. Brandie and Sampson are sleeping on the loveseat. Phoenix is sleeping in on my bed. I am watching football and munching raw broccoli. Broccoli has lots of vitamin C. It is good for winter.

rickolsen: It was 38 degrees today. 40 years ago it would have been 0 or lower. We have less than 6 inches of snow on the ground. 40 years ago we would have had at least 4 feet. Michigan winters are vastly different from what they were in the 60's.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner awhile ago. Phoenix is sleeping on the couch. Sampson is in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat. I'm watching football. I made spaghetti today and I'm having some for supper with parmesan cheese. I like it.

rickolsen: I ordered my aftershave on ebay like I always do. Bay Rum. I like the smell of it. I had to go to the post office to pick it up. One bottle was leaking. I get 2 at a time. About half the bottle was gone. This is the only problem I have ever had with ebay.
Jan 28, 2020 17:29:06 GMT -5
rickolsen: I take it back. Once I got a bucket of cat litter and it had no handle. That wasn't ebay's fault. That was the shipper. Really my aftershave wasn't ebay's fault either. Shipping accidents sometimes happen. I still love ebay and will continue to use them.

rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.
Feb 1, 2020 13:33:56 GMT -5
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping on the love seat. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. I'm watching football. Almost all of our snow is melted away.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.

Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!
Feb 14, 2020 8:31:08 GMT -5
rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.
