Phish Wish: Sign the Petition to Get a Simulcast Scheduled

by -

If you’re like many people and in theory most people trying to get tickets today for the return of Phish at Hampton Coliseum in March, you probably got shut out. There’s a comment on Hidden Track at 10:04am saying that he was already screwed out of tickets, so it appears that the three-night run is officially ready to be let loose. Now we only have five months to five months to wait.

In the meantime, maybe we can try to get the band to allow the event to be shared by all of the fans across the country that have been eagerly awaiting the return of the band’s first notes. I highly doubt they’re going to come back with “Piper” like they did at Madison Square Garden in 2002. “The Curtain With” is a solid bet, and I tell you — I really want to see this band walk out on stage via webcast or simulcast or at least streaming audio webcast rather than see a text update from one of my Twitter friend’s saying “OMFG they opened with ______.”

I just got an email from a fan that put together a petition. I say we sign it.

Dear Phish and Red Light Management,

This morning, 10/18/08, thousands of Phish phans got shut out of tickets by ticketmaster. Please sign a deal to simulcast at theaters and/or other arenas, your March 6th comeback performance or the whole Hampton run. There are a lot of folks that have supported you guys for many years and should be a part of this landmark show. Just because they couldn’t enter a security check faster than others shouldn’t mean that they can’t enjoy these shows. I believe this would not only benefit the phans but would also help the city of Hampton by not having thousands of ticketless phans descending upon Hampton that weekend. We all want to share in the groove, so please make this happen!

Even Gadiel got shut out!

In the words of the Obamaniacs across the country, YES WE CAN!. YES WE CAN!

    I had a friend first in line at Ticketmaster outlet. Maybe it took thirty seconds to get the tickets up, but they were already sold out.

    I’m not really sure why your friend went to a TM outlet…the tix sales were only done via online and over the phone. It was specifically stated that tix would not be sold at outlets prior to the public on sale.

    I thought it was a nice touch from ticketmaster to show me where I could buy market price tickets (scalped tickets) from TicketsNow, a ticketmaster subside.

    Over thirty, born and raised in hampton & no tix. There should be a giant inflatable movie screen on lot so the show can be simulcast for all the kids who got shut out.

    Not happy about TM either. I did all the practicing and account setup ahead of time and had the atomic clock up as well. After struggling with the security check not loading, I got disconnected from the virtual queue after waiting about 5 mins… with nothing but an “error” message. Of course by then it was over.
