bernie1cat:I just spoke to Janine at Outlands who handles the VIP cabanas....

YIKES!!!!!! I was greatly mistaken on the price of the cabanas! They are renting for $35,000! Yes, that is no mistake. I had heard that they rented for around $4500 thus my initial enthusiasm.

At that rate I think the cabana idea is out of reach. Sorry!

Yikes that is insane! thanks for checking on all that though!

Not sure if I will do Outside Lands, too many folks trying to get to the best spots I can imagine the chaos and getting smushed.

audi:I don't go to work for free.

Why should Paul?

YoungGerl:Outside Lands is a great festival...I'm so excited that Paul is playing it, and it's so cool that James is playing too!

In case anyone is curious, last year they announced the daily lineup on July 18, then released more tickets for sale (including single day tickets) on July 20 for the August 8-10 festival. Single day general admission tickets were $95 and single day VIP tickets were $210.

I love Outside Lands and have been there 3 out of the last 4 years, so if you have questions, let me know! I like it much better than Coachella, mainly because it's never blazing hot...but they also have a fantastic selection of food because they offer a "Taste of the Bay Area," and the majority of the food stands are from local San Francisco restaurants. Can't wait!

Thanks for the info! If I decide to go I may wait until they announce the day Paul is playing and get a ticket for just that day. Don't think I can take a whole weekend of being smushed in with thousands of other people. I wonder how fast the day tickets go.

WixRocks!:Despite not being able to go to NYC,

My DC tickets came today!

Great news!

I had been saving for quite a while when rumors started last year about a possible tour. I've always had the cheaper seats in the past and wanted to experience at least one show closer.

crazygina18:I wouldn't say the "rich", but those who are not terribly financially burdened. Obviously, to score a great floor ticket within the first 10 rows, you have to be able to fork out 15 grand easily.. even more money to pay out if you are going as a couple and buying a pair of tickets. It's quite frustrating and disappointing that just 6-7 years ago, these same seats were going for the standard $250 and some luck during ticket sales. Back then, I was just a high school/college student who couldn't afford that, and kept telling myself "one day". Now, that "one-day" is here, I can afford the $250 tickets, but it's still not going to get me a good up-front seat. I'm no less of a fan than those dishing out the thousands to get up close in front of the stage, but I simply cannot invest that money into one show with all my other expenses. It's almost a tease going to the shows and seeing everyone having a great time up front while they are interacting with Paul! I am quite happy for them, and they've worked hard to pay for those tickets, but I wish so badly I could partake in that enjoyment at just 1 concert in my lifetime!! I keep finding myself saying "one-day, I'll get VIP", but there's always that uncertainty..especially when you don't know if it's the last tour or not.. and the likihood of those VIP prices going up even more in the years to come, should Paul continue to tour!

I got 7th row for Paul's show in DC and paid no where near 15 grand, so not sure where that number is coming from. Each ticket was under 1000 too

I will honestly say though, I saved up a long time to get main floor tickets. Started saving as soon as rumors started about a possible tour this year.

I meant $1,500. Made a typo while writing that on my phone at work today, lol.
I usually save for Paul's tour also. Actually, I did save this year, what I could. With getting married, buying a house, and starting a new job all in one year, many would say I'm insane for going to see Paul the same summer of all of that! I'm dedicated and won't miss a tour in the states! But I'm pretty sure even just 1 show with $300 seats is going to make me struggle a bit this year! I just wish that all close floor seats were not part of the VIP packages.. like it was in 2002 and even up through the US Tour! I totally understand that you get the soundcheck and special privileges with some of the VIP tix, but blocking all close floor sections off to those price ranges is a bit extreme!

Gotcha about the 15 grand typo! ;)

Oh I understand what you are saying! That was me for a while last year when I got laid off from my job! I thankfully have a wonderful job that I really like, but yes, it gets tough when you have all those things happen at once.

RMartinez:I won't "save" for any concert.

It's a CONCERT, not some life experience you should have to save for months or years to experience!

Get real.

I "save" to buy a car.

I "save" to take my wife to Europe.

If I have to "save" to go to a concert by ANY artist, sorry, it ain't gonna happen.

Well if that's how it is for you, that's fine. I wanted to be able to sit up very close for at least one Paul concert in my lifetime, so I put money aside in my own little "Paul fund" now and then so I could do that. I don't usually spend a lot of money all at once, most of mine, that aren't for bills, food etc. is put aside for savings.
