September 28th-Charleston, IL
The Bandsintown app has listed a show at EIU on 9/28. Anybody else hear anything about this? I think it is the "Family Weekend" show but I am not sure. Not on the official list yet...

I have searched all over the internets. Does anyone know when tickets are going on sale?

I spoke with the ticket office at the EIU Student Union today. Unfortunately, this is part of their family weekend. Tickets are on sale to parents club members, students and employees right now. They do not have a date when the tickets will go on sale to the general public, although she speculated that it would be late August or early September.

I'm bummed out by this. Any parents club members out there who want to help a girl out?! :-)

Well it's late August. Nothing yet. Guess it's September.

Tickets on sale now to general public. Seat suck. Sad

Will be there, but in the 16th row, my worst for some time. Oh well, there will still be fun and I can't think of a better way to spend a couple of hours.

I tried logging in to the EIU site at midnight on Monday but it wasn't active yet. When I got on again at about 8:50 a.m. Monday I was able to get "single" tickets that were decent....so my sister, niece, and I will be in random seats in rows 3, 4 and 5 on Rick's side, and hubby will be alone over there in Tom country.

Camping at Fox Ridge State Park and visiting Lincoln's cabin will make an awesome weekend celebration for my niece's 14th birthday! That's how old I was when I saw my first Cheap Trick show, and this will already be her fourth!

We're so blessed to be able to keep the family tradition rocking!

Saturday, Sept. 28, my niece Julia turns 14. She has been a fan since she was a baby. The concert is her birthday party! She will be on Rick's side in row 4. Her favorite songs are "Clock Strikes 10" and "I Know What I Want."

If her favorite band surprised her with a birthday greeting or if her favorite guitar player tossed her a few extra picks, she would be on Cloud 9. Angel) Julia is a brunette beauty who will be flanked by her 'dream police' aunt (row 3) and uncle (row 5). We had to get single seats to get close!

The concert is not the only big event unfolding this weekend in the Land of Lincoln.

Do you have Dipping Cup Races in Wales, Darran?

Thanks, Sue!

I have a third-row Rick's side ticket, so unless there's another ban on flash photography, I should be able to get some legit pics and picks. I'm planning to give Rick something to aimAngel for.....
