I didn't read anything either. Maybe they just won't have any support. Didn't have any last time, at least not where I saw them.

I have a question here, guys and gals. I have a general admission standing ticket for the wiltern. However, I'm not sure if GA means you  can go in the pit. Is the pit first come first serve?

Guess general admission is anywhere in the venue.

The entire downstairs floor of the venue is general admission, but there were a limited number of tickets sold for the pit at a higher price. Those who purchased pit tickets will be receiving wristbands from the venue on the night of the show which gives you access to the pit. They only do this for certain shows, but they don't say how many pit tickets were made available in the first place. For that reason, they sell out quickly. Other shows are on a first come first serve situation, if they give out wristbands at all. It all depends on the type of show. Since this isn't the first time they've played at this venue, they are well aware of how crazy it can get with people pushing and shoving their way up to the front. Having a limited capacity for the pit helps prevent things from getting out of hand. If you're general admission but not pit, you can either get to the venue early and end up on the first tier just above the pit, or you can try and take advantage of their VIP underground lounge which gets you early entry, so you won't have to wait outside in line all day, as well as a few other perks. Call Tim Harrington for VIP availability. (213)531-0588  :D

I'm not positive if you can text that number or not. I would assume that it's a landline because there is also an email address included for those who don't get through on the phone. I hope you can get through to him eventually. I know there are a limited number of passes for each event they do it at. He's the only contact that I know of who can make it happen. Good luck to all of you who are trying. Here is his email address. TimHarrington@livenation.com

It looks like they have the same perks except for the optional table reservation being Level 5 instead of Level 2.


The Wiltern Gold:

Premium VIP parking in our private underground garage, an hour before doors open to the general public, with exclusive access to the venue

Pre-Show access to the Wiltern Underground Lounge with complimentary catering by local Italian eatery Pasta Sisters, a private cash bar, and no waiting outside in line

Reserve a private table during the concert; enjoy an excellent eye-line to the stage, ample room to dance, and a dedicated server to take care of you! (Located on Level 2 directly above the PIT)

Wiltern Back Booth:

Reserve a private table during the concert; enjoy quality acoustics, easy in-an-out access to the main floor, and a dedicated server to take care of you! (Located on Level 5 directly behind the soundboard)

All packages subject to vary dependent on the show.


I think if you get through to anyone you can tell them what you're looking for and they'll help you choose the package best suited for your needs.

I tried contacting Tim Harrington he hasn't responded. On a side note someone in that location directly behind the soundboard could probably record a decent bootleg

I’m not going to the final tour, I recorded the last gig I went to and it was a good time but I’ve seen them 11 times since 2004. I consider myself lucky to have seen them that many times, the only thing I’m looking forward to now is Ville solo project and at some point warner brothers releasing b-sides and demos from the albums recorded under that label.

This.

Demos and whatever else that remains unreleased from the last four albums would be cool to have eventually. Just throw them up on iTunes and let us know they're there and be done with it. No remastering. No vinyl nonsense. No CDs in fancy packaging. No dozen different versions or limited editions with pointless and valueless extras. Nothing that we don't truly need and is designed and created only in an effort to pinch us of every penny we've got. Just the music.

However, I am still interested in what the setlist is going to be for the tour/final show. If they play something cool, I'll check it out on YouTube eventually and probably be disappointed because whatever it is doesn't sound like what I would hope it would sound like. Honestly, I'm more excited for CKY in the hopes that they play some stuff from their new album that they haven't played live yet.

Got 3 tickets for the Charlotte, NC show for like 230$.  Its gonna be a hell of a drive but well worth it for the farewell!

Hope they play Stigmata, Resurrection, Bleed Well, etc for US.  Cky might be cool if they play older material.

Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Unfortunately, my last HIM experience will be cut short due to unforeseen circumstances, and am now selling two GA tickets for the Anaheim show on Oct 27th at the house of blues. I'm asking for $500 for both or (LITERALLY) Best Offer. I know it's a huge stretch, but I wouldn't be doing this unless I had to :(

Also have 2 tickets for the Wiltern on October 26th, if I sell those, I will keep the Anaheim ones....I'm unable to find any tickets for The Wiltern Show, so I'm assuming it is sold out

It's a ridiculous offer I know I basically saw it Ticketmaster was charging per ticket and went on average they charge anywhere from 166 to 333 I really don't want to let them go I'm going to see if I can get a loan from someone somewhere to help me make rent for the month

We will see how this pans out

Gettting so close now I’m so excited to see the setlist I’m vowing not to moan about it after years of moaning and just enjoy the final shows. It feels like it’s came round so quick since that news in March and quite sad thinking in 2 months I will see them for the last ever time.

Feels like yesterday we were all tuning in to the radio to hear some news about a new album and here we are left with two months of HIM..  :'( I’m not ready to say goodbye, meh. A big chapter of my life is closing but it was a great one... its 12 years ago tomorrow since the first time I saw for the 1st time  *violin music plays*

Ouch, man. That really sucks. I hope you're able to figure out a solution where you can still go to at least one show and actually enjoy it. Are you part of any HIM groups on Facebook or anything? I'm not sure how active the HIM Collectors group is on there anymore, it's been a few years since I've been a part of it, but it was still fairly active even back then and besides places like Stubhub and Craigslist it's probably your best bet to try.
