    There's an interview in the KAT'S REPORT under Entertainment www.lasvegassun.com
    copied from Robin Leach www.vegasdeluxe.com where Pete and Rodger say they feel
    free this tour despite the loss of their two band mates.

    I put my request in for 2 tics in the upper VIP STUDIO LEVEL TABLES SEC. 201 area where I like to sit for the
    Shows in the JOINT...I'll know a bit later what my contact there comes up with.
    I prefer Table 4,5,6,7...............check out the seating chart.

    You can get an idea of the area at www.thejointlasvegas.com

    In the picture, you can see a small pic of the table seats and the floor below.
    In that shot, my guess is the table shown by that black pillar is Table 5...the stage is to the Right
    and not shown in the picture.

    I like being off the floor...the sound and view is real good up there, you have your own cocktail service,
    and restrooms...it's great.

    REASON I'M POSTING THIS....I'm getting 2 tickets and 'might' have the second one available. My regular
    guest has not confirmed she'll be able to make the gig.
    Demi Gongos, the host for that area, has not set ticket prices yet. The ARE more expensive than the floor seats.
    I'm guessing around $150-$200 each......we'll see.

    Check out the JOINT's website I posted...
    Depending on the Show, the floor can be reserved
    or general admission.
    The area I like can only be purchased via a host however,
    if all the table seats haven't been sold by showtime, you
    can get 'em at the JOINT box office the night of the Show.
    There are also boxes on the upper level at the very back.
    Call the JOINT for info on all the various seating options and
    prices.

    I don't believe TicketMaster has any access to the JOINT
    ticket sales. You buy from the JOINT box office.

    I'd better check.
    You click tickets for the who on the joint website and it takes you to ticketmaster.

    Hmmm okay then, I've never bought tickets via the website...
    The advantage to buying from the JOINT box office is...'if' you
    need any help/suggestions, they're very helpful AND...their
    service charge is cheaper than the overpriced TM rip off.
    Do what ya gotta do... I don't think tics for The WHO go on sale
    til next Friday for the general public.

    Call the 'Rock', ask for the JOINT box office 1.800.473.7625, they'll advise.
    If you want one of the STUDIO LEVEL VIP table seats, ask for Demi Gongos email or phone
    number....she's the gal you gotta buy from.

    Any broker will be more expensive than the JOINT's box office...
    some more than others. Their advantage is you can buy before
    the general public in many cases. The disadvantage is some of
    these guys charge double the price or more.
    Again, do what ya gotta do.

    Saw them in 1980 at Anaheim Stadium. A $10 ticket for nothing as it was the worst concert I've been to.
