      Well, this presale was a bust for me. 2000+ people ahead of me in line. Finally got in..TM error...got thrown out. Got right back in...no tickets available. Got back into TM..another 2000+ people in line...got in an hour later. All the VIP tickets are gone. How many people have this presale code? And what up with this TM “waiting room”? This is ridiculous and unacceptable. Almost as bad as verified fan. Guess I will try my luck on the general sale. Hoping they held back some VIP packs.

        Was trying to help friends of mine buy regular-priced tickets and TM was just a bear, it kept kicking them out once they got to the front of the "line."  I eventually was able to get tickets in my cart for them, but when I tried to log into my account, I got booted all the way out and lost the seats. Eventually I was able to get 4 different tix for them n the lower level using the Paul presale. (I can't buy anything with Amex thanks to that two-orders-for-the-whole-tour limit thing.   ) I didn't know about the seat-backs,  but hopefully they will be ok about that part. 

        If you have bleacher seats you can always rent the flimsy portable seat backs available at Lambeau that hook over the bleacher.

        I was confused by the AMEX 2 order limit as well. Not sure if they meant only two seperate orders irregardless of the venue, two shows, or two tickets??? But they let me buy 4 tickets so hopefully they don't cancel me! I'll raise hell if they do!

         

         

        It's 2 ORDERS for the ENTIRE 2019 tour, over ALL of your Amex cards that share your name and address, irregardless of the venue, show, etc. I checked on this when the first batch of 2019 shows went on sale and that's what they told me. I used it twice for a couple of those shows, so I don't want to try using it anymore and risk them canceling one of my ticket orders. So since you have used it once for Green Bay; you can use it one more time on this tour and then that's it.  And you can't use a Visa card to buy tix in an Amex presale, even if one is in your TM account. It doesn't show up when you are trying to checkout. 

        and thanks for the tip on the rentable backs for the bleacher seats. 

        Thanks for clarifying! That's sort of what I figured but, still, if you use the AMEX card(s) twice is there a total ticket limit? I haven't seen any reference to a total ticket limit across the 2 orders. Also, I better check to see which card I used for the UK shows!

          I think this is only for US shows in 2019.  And I think there probably is a total ticket limit but I am not sure what it is. I'm more annoyed about the whole Amex thing  because  I now can't shop the Amex presales anymore.  You would think they would be happy to take my money if I want to place more than 2 orders over the course of the tour! 

            TM just threw a whole bunch of VIP tickets up. In case anybody got shut out yesterday.

             

              I have been trying for several days, when I have time, to look for decent tickets that I can afford. Suddenly it is telling me that PAULFRESHENUPGREENBAY  is not the correct password. It worked earlier. Is there another password to use?????

                PAULFRESHENUPGREENBAY should still work, but make sure you don't have an Amex presale selected because it will probably want that code instead. There is also the Live Nation presale, code is CHILL. 

                But I just looked and there are basically no face value seats left at the moment (well, 2 singles are left lol). The Amex sale has a lot of seats - probably because many of us already used our quote of 2 Amex orders for the tour so can't use that sale. Although it appears those may be all singles. And there are VIP and platinum seats available.

                  I should add that there are also some seats for the laminate/lanyard presale (the "album preorder presale") that you would have been mailed a code for if you bought the laminate awhile back.

                    This is so strange. I had a lanyard code and the code from here. I got tickets on Thursday and didn’t have to enter any code.

                      VIP (and platinum) seats don't generally seem to require a code most of the time for this and past tours? Though sometimes early in the presale you might have to put a code just to get into the sale. (But if you are presented with a list of all the presales, if you deselect everything but the VIP you can usually get in.)For the non-VIP GB tix, when we were in the mess of trying to get a ticket it was hard to tell what was happening, but in "testing" it later I found if I went in without a code (fresh browser) and I clicked a 'locked' seat that asked for a code that same seat accepted both the lanyard and the Live Nation code.

                        Hello Everyone,

                        Extremely excited about Paul coming to Titletown! Not sure if anyone can help me on this, but prepare for a long winded sentimental story and ask for help, and I apologize in advance for all of it! Anyways, my name is Samuel Paul Mehlberg, guess where the middle name came from.... I'm 25 years old and my sister and I were blessed to live in a house that was constantly listening to the Beatles and Paul McCartney. The favorite Beatle always was Paul, hence my middle name. My family and I saw Paul last live in 2013 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, and it will forever be our favorite concert of all time, no matter what other shows we see, it was that amazing, unless of course seeing Paul in Lambeau tops it. As Green Bay natives and Packer fanatics, that is very possible to see our two passions merge on a single night. Anyways, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in November, 2010. My Mom fought her cancer for eight hard years with endless love and support from our immediate family (Dad, Sister, and Myself,) extended family and friends. Unfortunately, my Mom lost her battle to breast cancer this past May, and at times it feels the hole her death has left in our family is insurmountable. What I would love to do for my Dad, who lost the love of his life and his forever Beatles partner, is to try and get Paul to do some sort of meet and greet with my father while he's in town this upcoming June. I am not sure if anyone can help me here, but this would help a man who would never ask for a helping hand but could use one at this point in his life heal. The below piece is a speech I wrote for my Mother's funeral which was held at Calvary Lutheran Church in Green Bay, about a half mile north from Lambeau Field where we will see our idol perform six months from now. If anyone could help me try to get this in front of the right people, I would be forever in your debt. Thank you!

                        Hello Everyone,

                         

                        Thank you all for coming today. I’ve learned many life lessons throughout my 24 years from my parents. A lot of wisdom from my Mom, and mostly what buttons not to push to stay in the good graces of my Mother from my Dad; thanks for paving the way on that one Dad. One of the greatest gifts I’ve received from both my parents is a love for music. I’d like to share a few messages from some of our family favorites that I feel pertain to the amazing woman Lynne Mehlberg was and what has brought us all here today.

                         

                        The first song I’d like to reference is “Mother” by Pink Floyd. The song tells the story of a son confessing his fears to his mother, and his mother in turn building a “wall” to protect her baby boy. The final verse of the song comes from the “son” of the narrative and states “Mother did it need to be so high?” Believe me, I asked this very same question as a young, and mind you very dumb, teenager. As I’ve grown older, I began to cherish the “wall” that my Mom had built in order to protect me from all my pain and worries, and I also began to notice that my Mom had been a busy builder, as she had also built walls around each and every one of us here today. I’ve said it before, Lynne Mehlberg only knew one way to love, and that was with everything she had. We have all been comforted throughout our lives from the loving walls my Mom built around us, and for that I am eternally grateful.

                         

                        The next song was a personal favorite of my Mom’s for me, and that is “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynard. The morale of the song is around all the things a mother told her son around living a simple, yet fulfilling life. The mother in the song stresses to live life in the moment and seek love, not fame and fortune. While my family and I have never been “rich” in dollars and cents, we have been very wealthy in love, and this precedence was set as early as I can remember from both my parents. Never forget the blessings you all have in your lives, and if at times you find yourselves wanting, remember “Simple Man”, and the love of Lynne Mehlberg, and I believe you will all find yourselves fulfilled indeed.

                         

                        Moving on now to hallowed ground for the Mehlbergs, that being “the Beatles.” Growing up, my family did a lot of driving. Whether that was to hockey games all across the state, or to family vacations in Gulf Shores, Alabama. One consistent you could find on all those trips, in addition to just about any relaxing night at home or at the cabin, was “the Beatles.”

                         

                        I’d like to highlight three “Beatles” songs with you all today, the first being “Blackbird.” “Blackbird” tells the story of a song bird with broken wings which becomes healed and learns to fly again. My Mom has been nothing short of an angel to everyone’s life she touched. During my Mom’s nearly eight-year fight with cancer, her wings were unfairly damaged. I’m here to tell you that my Mom’s wings are now whole again, in heaven and in our hearts, and we can all leave here today knowing our angel will be with us every step of the way.

                        The second Beatle’s song I’d like to share is “Revolution.” After hearing the news that my Mom’s cancer had again progressed and that she was no longer eligible to receive treatment through her clinical trial, it became clear to me that the final chapter had begun. During this period, my outlet for coping became my house, which is nearing the end of its year-long remodel that has seen its fair share of blood, sweat, and tears. One long night as I attempted to occupy my heart and mind while working and finding solace in “the Beatles” over my speaker, “Revolution” came on. While it is a great song, I don’t think Meg, Dad, Mom or me would put it in any of our top five’s as far as “the Beatles” go; and yes we do in fact have these discussions, we’re super-fans and we are proud of it. “Revolution” talks about the troubles “the Beatles” faced during their day and how in the midst of that, everything is going to be “alright.” As I listened to the song, I stopped working and began to ponder the lyrics while applying them to everything that was troubling me, I was overwhelmed with a sense of calm. My Mom has always put everyone else’s needs and wants before her own, and just because she is no longer here with us on earth doesn’t mean that has changed. My Mom will still remind us that everything is going to be “alright”, just like in “Revolution.” To honor the beautiful woman my Mom, Lynne Mehlberg, was, we must all go forth from this day knowing everything is going to be alright.

                         

                        Lastly, the album Abbey Road is essentially a montage of short songs that play in succession. The second to last song on the album is titled “The End.” The final verse of the song states “And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make.” The love my family and I have felt over the last week has been amazing, and this full church today is testament to the love my Mom received throughout her life. My Mom’s love was powerful, and it was abundant. She loved everyone here today as she loved her own family. Let us all remember and cherish the woman my Mom was, and find solace in the fact that her love is still all around us.

                         

                        Thank you.

                         

                        Sam Mehlberg

                         

                         

                          My heartfelt condolences to you, Sam.  I also lost my wife and Paul concert companion almost 4 years ago.  Paul rarely does a meet and greet but the occasional show will have a charity auction with that as the prize.  If Green Bay turns out to be one of them it is likely to be noted here.  Your best option is to enjoy the concert together in your mother's memory and perhaps bring a sign in her honor, which is something I have done. If you are in the VIP section it might catch Paul's eye. wink

                            Hello Green Bay-goers!

                            Does anyone have the skinny on the VIP/soundcheck yet in terms of timing etc? I’ve only done soundcheck once before and I can’t remember how early they told us to be at the venue that time. I think it was around 4 but could be wrong. 

                             

                            Thanks!

                              4PM is the usual meeting time.  You should receive an email with instructions a few days before the show.

                                There was just a release of some "platinum" priced seats including several in row 2 of section B in front of stage ($775 without soundcheck).  Also sections  A and E, row 4 for $389.

                                  Just a comment on those looking for better tickets

                                  my first Macca concert was 1990 in Ames IA at the top row of the 55,000 capacity football stadium but I didn’t care as this is PAUL MCCARTNEY!! Have been to 6 more concerts since and going to 3 in a row (Madison ,Green Bay and Moline) and I can truthfully say I cannot really rank them as they are all outstanding!

                                    Bumpppppp...Weather forecast tomorrow is absoultely fabulous.

                                    Also, they will be selling special  commemorative Paul at Lambeau merchandise such as T-shirts, cheeseheads, etc.,  unlike at  other venues on this tour. I expect the demand may well out strip supply!

                                    Traffic coming from the south will probably be tough as there is construction along I-41 and the Green Bay Bellin marathon with 12k expected runners is also tomorrow and will close down some roads...Not sure if any in the vacinity of Lambeau will still be shut when the lots open at 4PM but just be forewarned.

                                      Cheeseheads, that's fun! Glad there will be good weather.  I have noticed city-specific t shirts at the shows I've seen so far.

                                        Hopefully they will also actually be serving cheese at the buffet unlike in Madison.

                                          True! There wasn't any.  Btw I see in the online store here that there is a Green Bay football jersey for sale so I'm sure that will be at the show

                                            True! There wasn't any.  Btw I see in the online store here that there is a Green Bay football jersey for sale so I'm sure that will be at the show

                                            Yes, I see the jerseys are $150-155!!! Yikes!!! We'll see what else they have at the stadium!
