I'll probably go to the concert. I've never been to a Timberwolf concert before. When I checked ticketmaster, the $15 tickets were giving you section 2 (front section center) in row FF, which I can assume is row 32... not bad for $15 bucks.

I was just at the Ohio State fair concert yesterday. He put up a great performance, and it was pretty fun to watch. Needless to say, you're in for a treat. ;)

Can you tell me whether he had a warm-up act? We bought tickets and then found out we'd be across town until 7:30. No big deal if he has a warm-up. Thanks.

If he had one at the State Fair, it doesn't necessarily mean that he'll have one at KI. Then again, I've been to hundreds of concerts and the only person who just did NOT have an opening act was Bruce Springstien. His concert, in turn, was almost 3 hours long.

Does anybody know if the $15 tickets are available for employees also?

Yes -- the more expensive tickets are for those who do not have a means of getting into the park.

Thank You very much. B)

I was at the concert three years ago and it was great! I might have to go again for just $15!

At the fair, he didn't exactly have an opening act on stage. There was a guy running around the venue messing with people in a civil way, and there was a clown on stilts after he left. The first guy was rather amusing, and definitely got the crowd loosened up. Though I'm pretty sure that there will be an opening act at KI. He had opening acts at KI during the Poodle Hat tour, so there's a good chance that there will be one there this year.

That's awesome. I wonder who gets to pick the coaster because he could not be a fan of coasters and choose like Fairly Odd Coaster. I'd want to ride The Beast with him.

I saw Weird Al at the Fraze in Kettering. I have seen him live over 15 times through the years. At the Fraze he started Amish Paradise and about 1/3 of the way through the song must have forgotten the words!! He said "You don't want to hear that song anyway" and screamed "Radio, Radio" and covered that song instead. Only time I've ever seen it happen.

He is an absolute riot and an outstanding musician in every right. I love his originals the most, but White and Nerdy just doesn't come across well live. Other than that it is a fantastic show and I'm looking forward to it.
