Rush 2012 Clockwork Angels tour updates:
The first round of pre-sales for Rush's 2012 Clockwork Angels tour are beginning to wind down, with general ticket sales kicking off tomorrow and Saturday. The first round included 10 dates: Manchester, Philadelphia, Newark, Brooklyn, Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, Chicago, Anaheim and LA. Music Today fan pre-sales for all 10 of these dates closed yesterday at 5PM. As of this post VIP pre-sales for Detroit, Brooklyn, Boston and Anaheim are still open with the rest having sold out already. Various Live Nation, radio and venue pre-sales are still ongoing for most of the dates through this afternoon. General ticket sales for Manchester, Philadelphia, Newark, Brooklyn, Boston, Anaheim and LA begin tomorrow at 10AM (local venue time) with Chicago, Detroit, and Buffalo going on sale Saturday at 10AM. With the benefit of hindsight we now have a better picture of how the various pre-sales work this go-around. The Music Today fan pre-sales operated much as they have in the past with the one exception being that registration with the fan community on the Music Today website is no longer required. The big difference this year was with the VIP pre-sales, which are now conducted by VIPNation.com rather than Ticketmaster. With VIP Nation, you still get a guaranteed seat in the first 15 rows but you don't know the exact location of your ticket until you pick them up at the venue. The CITI, Live Nation and other pre-sales work much as they have in the past and typically require a password. The Live Nation password this time around is melody. For any other passwords, just check out the tour page, and for more details on how all the pre-sales work check out my ticket sales and pre-sales guide.
