        This may be it for the US-I noticed for the DC announcement that it doesn't have
        Keep checking PaulMcCartney.com for further announcements

          It will be all for this leg I think

            Just picked up Hershey there other day. This will be 2 shows about an hour or so from home. Nice, after traveling the last couple of years to shows.

              WOO-HOO!!! Two shows close to home this summer!!!

              Man...I need a lottery ticket...fast!

                WixRocks!:WOO-HOO!!! Two shows close to home this summer!!!

                Man...I need a lottery ticket...fast!

                Must not be too far from me.
                Glad I decided tip pass on Philly for now.

                  I'm just a smidge outside Baltimore...so Philly and DC are a piece of cake...straight shot on 95 just change direction! I'll take the metro down for DC...wouldn't dare drive around Verizon Center.

                    I got a room at the Hotel Monaco-coming in from Jersey.
                    Nice hotel if anyone is looking and right across the street from Verizon

                      And here it is! Glad I passed on Hershey AND Cincinatti as well! I really gambled on that one! May try to grab 2 shows this summer! Cleveland and DC!

                        Purrfect for me....a Tuesday night and the smallish air conditioned Verizon Center FedEx Field was way too enormous and a very long walk to the metro station. What a very pleasant surprise Thank you to the tour promoters for scheduling this. Next on my agenda: to buy a ticket hoping to beat the ticket agencies!

                          My source for these shows said two shows, and it makes sense as it is the largest indoor market on this tour. If so, the second Minneapolis show was announced the day after the first so I would suspect the same in this case.

                            Two D.C. shows?

                              Wouldn't surprise me one bit...Paul had no problem selling out Nationals Park three years ago and Verizon Center is half its size.

                                Interesting. It would be inconvenient to hit shows on back to back nights in DC, but if it happens, I'm not sure how we could even consider not doing it.

                                  Same!

                                    From reading other's posts, buying a great presale ticket is going to be a frustrating experience. Are we competing with ticket agencies? Can't understand this. Better seats should be available I would think during a presale.
                                    I am retired so am able to spend the time getting frustrated with the website but someone who is at work can't spend a lot of time trying to purchase a ticket.

                                      Horrible presale this morning. Philadelphia was way easier Monday. But, that's also a city he visited less than a year ago and its double the size of Verizon Center...so I suppose all of that should be accounted for.

                                        did you manage to get anything? we completely struck out (for the first time, btw -- i've been to 8 paul shows and never had a problem with presales). nothing but VIP-priced tickets we can't afford, and one section with obstructed view.

                                          The presales were horrible for Milwaukee too! Absolutely nothing on the PM.com presale... then I tried the venue sale and there was absolutely nothing that I wanted... and it was even hard to get anything to come up that day! Finally, I nailed it and got exactly what I wanted during the general sale, so go figure! Keep trying!

                                            good to hear! i am definitely going to keep trying, since there's the amex presale and the regular sale. dumb ticketmaster isn't going to stop us from going to see paul!!
