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 when they asked for it. I just ate some chicken and noodles. I had a late lunch. I took a nap on the couch. Sampson woke me up so I gave them some gravy dinner. They are happy.

rickolsen: Living as a shutin with no local tv news I'm kind of sheltered from the world. I went out for food yesterday. There was very little traffic. Our 2 24 hr grocery stores are open from 8:00 to 10:00 now. The shelves are mostly bare.

rickolsen: Fortunately I have enough food for me and my cats for awhile. I don't need to go out again. I'm not afraid of getting the virus because I just don't come into contact with people. It's important to me that my cats are safe. They are.

rickolsen: Brandie has been hunting for several nights. She just caught another mouse. I can't find the mouse and she's back in the kitchen hunting. Maybe it got away from her. I saw it in her mouth. I don't think she would eat it. Mystery.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping on the love seat. Sampson is sleeping on my bed and Phoenix is sleeping on my dresser. I am watching football. We will have leaves on the trees in a couple of weeks. I feel good today. It is a good time of year.

rickolsen: I just saw a robin in my backyard. When you see a robin, in March, in Michigan you know spring is here. There will be leaves on the trees soon and it will get warmer. Robins don't like snow and the cold. Soon I can open my window and get some fresh air.

rickolsen: Tomorrow is trash day. I put my trash out today so I won't forget like I did last week. It is full to the brim. Two of my neighbors put their trash out today too. I don't know how I generate so much trash, but I do.

rickolsen: I have about 86 rolls of toilet paper and 40 rolls of paper towels I got on ebay a few months back. I always buy these 2 items in bulk on ebay. I hope Walmart gets some delivery trucks soon. Last time I was there the food shelves were almost empty.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner a little while ago. Prime Filet Chicken. Brandie is sleeping in the box on the diningroom table. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. I'm watching football and waiting for the trash truck to get here.

rickolsen: I think Spring is my favorite time of year. Winter is hard on people with depression because it gets dark so early. My cats are healthy, well fed, and happy. All is good in my world. I can't wait to open my window and get some fresh air.

rickolsen: The city makes me run my water 24/7 all winter to keep their water pipes from freezing. They just sent me notice I can turn off my water. That means no more cold weather. Yay! I hate cold weather.

rickolsen: I just saw a robin in my backyard again. Spring is really here. It will be mid 50's for the next week. That's a little chilly for a robin. They fly south when it gets in the 60's. I'm sure they can tolerate it for a week or so.

rickolsen: I just ate a beef and bean burrito I got at Walmart. Only $1 each. One burrito fills me up and they are so easy. Just pop one in the microwave for a couple of minutes and then enjoy. They are in the Deli section by the subs. Try them.

rickolsen: Has anyone else in the northern part of the country seen a robin? I don't know if they have robins in the west. I know they live from Michigan to Massachusetts.I think this robin will make a nest in my tree. I hope so.

bounderdriver: Minneapolis has had Robins for about 2 weeks.

seraphin: I saw my first robin yesterday here in Boston - also the woodpeckers are back in their usual territories.

rickolsen: I am so glad I ordered bulk toilet paper and paper towels from ebay. These seem to be the 2 things people are really hoarding. Order bulk from ebay and it's delivered right to your door.

rickolsen: Sampson is sleeping on the couch, but Phoenix and Brandie are awake. Phoenix is preening on the livingroom floor and Brandie is hunting in the kitchen. I don't know what she did with the last mouse she caught. I can't find it.
