Hey all! Just called Blackbyrd Music on Whyte and they only have 100 tix for sale....when asking buddy if there have been a lot of inquiries...he said yes. The lady at Red's said the Pixies will come on at about 11 pm.

Listen will probably have tickets too...I just talked to the guy, and he said he's TOLD he'll be selling them, but they haven't walked into the store just yet.

I'd like to know why some Red's people already know when the band hits the stage and the ones I call can't even tell me whether minors will be allowed at the show. I gotta figure out whether to get my brother a ticket or not.

Hey Crispy,
If you haven't already found out...the show is 'no minors'. Which I'm kind of happy about, they won't have the caged off area as per usual...but I guess kinda stinks for your brother...

My suggestion, don't know if it will work, but head to Red's many many hours before, hang out, go bowling or something, then head into the show. I believe they only ID at the outer doors.

As for the knowledge...well I asked for ticketing and it sounded like I got the concert director...if you ask the peons, I don't think they have all the details....

That's a good idea, getting him to go bowling first and just try to stick around. I'm sure he'll give it a shot. Actually, I guess he wouldn't have a wristband that way.

Ticketmaster is still a go at 9:30 am. Blackbyrd Music on Whyte Ave. opens at 10 am and has 100 tix.

I think your best bet is to hook it up online. Oh yeah, Red's themselves are also selling the tix and I believe, don't quote me on this, they are selling at 10 am as well.

I read in the Journal yesterday that some jackass on Ebay is selling the Brixton tix for over $200!

Only shitty thing about ticketmaster, the kids going to Aerosmith the same night, their tix go on sale Sat. mornin' as well, may slow the site down a bit. Hope not.

The show's no minors. I second the "who cares" as to who will be opening.

Carolyn, if Blackbyrd's out of your range, Listen (best music shop in town, you're not too old to appreciate that) is on 124 St./107 Ave. next to Popeye's. Freecloud usually has tickets for these shows too, it's across from Vic. Still, I'd try calling those places to make sure they'll have 'em. Red's will be selling for sure, they have 100 tickets available at 11:00 tomorrow morning, which is good. With that time stagger it gives the opportunity to get there if you're shut out elsewhere.

Hi gang,

I'm a first-time poster, and I've found this forum to be super helpful for ticket info & tips. I'm also jazzed by the camaraderie & esprit de corps among us Pixies fanatics - you've seen all the posts under the main Winnipeg page (group? section? I dunno - I don't normally use discussion groups. But this is special.), so 'nuff said.

Anyways, what are the pre- and post-show plans for the fans?

Heh, heh - to quote a memorable Girls Against Boys lyric, "I'd invite you back to my place for a drink / But I don't got a place". I'm flying in from way, way out of town & I'm unfamiliar with the 'legendary' West Ed. Mall - any decent pubs in or near the vicinity?

sadly no...west ed and the west end of edmonton is no good for pubbing. your best bet is to head out to whyte ave....centre of town....to various places, my haunt is the black dog...there iss obyrne's, the Strathcona, dingy hole in the wall, the Commie, Savoy.....
...but if you are cabbing...you're looking at a $40 cab ride....

...there is an Elephant and Castle in the mall.....

I'll tell ya who still lines up, I do! That's why I have no tickets - wrestling tickets went on sale at the same time and there was a sick lineup. My buddy and I got shut out at Ticketmaster, so we went to Red's to give it another shot. Well, there were lines formed at both the inside and outside doors; someone even came out to take a picture of the lineup. Then at 11:00 they opened the doors and it was a mad scramble to the ticket booth; even after spotting a friend and leapfrogging the better part of the line we got nothing. It must have been the guy three spots ahead of us in line, got the very last ones.

So yeah, bottom line: I don't have tickets. If any scalper is reading, you've got a sure sale right here. If anyone here is planning the trip with an extra ticket, you've got a free place to stay in Edmonton, and I'll keep you filled with quality Canadian beer. If that's not your thing, I'll hand-squeeze you a gallon of orange juice. Whatever, name it.

I'm pretty bummed.

Ah that sucks Crispy!

I am so stupid, I bought'em online and they said you could purchase 4 but I only bought 2, what a dummy....
Especially after what I hear I could get for them!
Just kidding but I hope you find some.

Here's my ticket buying experience for the Edmonton show. I wanted 2 tix for the Red's show and was only able to get 1. I tried online at 9:30am and got skunked. Then I called Reds ticket line at 11am from what I can tell I got the last ticket (cause they could only sell me 1 ticket even though i asked for 2) and this was around 11:05 so it took less than 5 minutes to sell the 100 tickets Reds had.

Also if the doors open at 7pm what time do you think The Pixies will hit the stage? I doubt I'll want to check out the opening band, but I definitely don't want to miss the pixies coming on stage. I'm thinking about showing up at around 7:30 to 8pm.
