I live about 10 minutes from the venue and about 25 minutes from the fire. It seems the fire is burning in an eastern direction at the moment. The Venue is to the west of the fire across the 5 and 405 Freeway. These things change quickly though!
Let's hope it all just lies down soon.

 :shock: Yes I'm concerned about the effect that the fire with have on this concert. I know that the fire will be more south of Irvine however the smoke will still be bad. I live in the irvine area mysef I go out my door and good luck trying to breath.http://

The show must go on!!!  By the way if anyone needs any tickets I have four in Loge 5 row 8 I'm pratically giving them away to the nicest person.

Lets all wish that this show does not get postponed . I really wanted to wish Scott a Happy D'day

Hang in there my fellow california neighbors.

Im sure the show will go on!! I heard on the news that the winds should die off by Tuesday evening, i believe. Hopefully, calm winds will give the fire unit the upperhand against those hellish flames!!! The only thing that would postpone the show would be the smoke, like VELVETSEEKER mentioned.

Wow!! :shock: That was a deal! I wonder why he was selling them that cheap?

I'm thinkin he thinks ga means pit no matter what and whoever bought those got themselves a pair of lawn tickets.

A lot of flames are dying off since the winds have calmed down! At this moment it seems that the fire department are worried about the hot spots.
I just heard on the news that they don't plan on having full containment until October 31st. So im hoping this wont effect the show in any way.

Looking to buy 2 PIT or lower Orchestra tickets.  If you have 2 (possibly even 1 extra) please PM me.

In case anyone needs really cheap tickets, someone on craiglist has Loge 7 for $20 each!  Prices will probably drop too... 

Ticketmaster also has their buy 1 get 1 free deal.  The password is 'lastfight', but these will be Terrace seats (last section of seats).

  :? I called the venue this morning and they said that they do not expect a cancellation due to the smoke/Fires
The women said that at this time the show goes on unless someone else decides to cancel. I sure wish I could know for deffinate so that my plans are set in stone.

As it looks now I may have to give four loge 5 tickets away. What a loss.. Since ticketmaster did not even come close to selling out for this show. I called Kroq to see if they had any news they replied it was up to the venue. I also told them that they should do a better job annoucing the show for this friday, because of all the empty seats. This is sad. Did the guys get to much exposure here this year or what???? I myself can never get enough. Maybe they should change the show date so that more tickets get sold and no one gets sick from the smoke . What do you think !!!
I'm going with friends we are sitting in orchestra.  So let me know what you think and if you know of anyone that would like to go for free.

The fires has nothing to due with the poor ticket sales.  Sure, KROQ and management in general could have done a better job promoting the show, but fact of the matter is, VR should not have scheduled an amphitheatre gig at this time.  Actually, KROQ did plenty of promoting their after-party with VR at the Rainbow!  VR should have stuck to large clubs/small theatres to create excitement.  It's better to sell out than to have at least half of the place empty as it is now. 

If management has any brain cells (which is highly debatable), they will use the fires as spin and move to a different (smaller) venue or cancel to save the band some face.  Don't get me wrong, I love VR as most everyone else on this board.  But in the grand scheme of things, VR does not have the "mass appeal" to constantly sell out places with 15,000+ seats.
