This morning I completed my request to see Madonna on any of her dates at BAM in September. Won't know until May 19th if I got a ticket, what date and which seat. But assuming I get a ticket, I'll be staying in Brooklyn for first time. I'll fly in at least the day before. I will probably use SuperShuttle as I'll probably have a carry-on. So I'm thinking either LGA or JFK? Looks like JFK is closer to Brooklyn, correct?
I plan to stay in Midtown if I get tickets to see Madonna so I can see some Broadway. Is it easy to get to Brooklyn from midtown? I dont want to stay in Brooklyn.
BAM is very easy to get to in terms of Brooklyn locations. Pretty much all of the train lines that run between Manhattan and Brooklyn stop near there, as well as the LIRR, so transit options are plentiful.
Yeah, I am totally confused. I thought you could only request for one show unless you were a Madonna legacy club member. Has that changed? I have just applied for one date, but I'd love to increase my chances if that was an option. I am a CITI card holder, so I guess that increases my chances.
Thanks, Jordan and Miles. Have they confirmed how they were going to select who got the tickets? I thought it was going to be like a lottery (with club members and CITI card holders first) and that it didn't matter when you registered as long as you did it before May 10.If it's not a lottery, then it seems unfair because they only announced a few shows at first and then announced several more after. So if you had put your initial request for the first shows, perhaps you also wanted more chances with the new dates added...and if re-submitting a new form with the additional dates puts you in the back of the queue, then that's not fair.
Thanks for that, Miles. Yeah, I didn't mean lottery as in cheap tickets like on Broadway, but that all requests would just be processed randomly no matter when you registered. Maybe I am going crazy but I seem to recall reading on one of the info pages about the tour that you didn't have to rush to register as long as you did it by May 10...which implied to me that when you submitted the form didn't affect the order of how it was processed. But that could just be my interpretation and maybe there was nothing like that mentioned. I'm just kicking myself for only submitting for one date and not fully understanding that I could submit for more dates. By chance, I was going to be in New York that week (to see Jake Gyllenhaal before his show closes), so I could have submitted extra dates for Madonna. I'm hoping my CITI card will at least give me a bit of an advantage. :)
I remember the language that you’re talking about but it seems to of been removed after demand was so astronomical.According to the website now:“Ticket requests will be confirmed in the following order, subject to ticket availability: ICON Fan Club Members as of October 30, 2011; Citi Cardmembers; Public Requests. All Citi Cardmember and Public Requests are reviewed by Verified Fan®. Each request will be fulfilled based on the best available option, pending availability.”I don’t know if I need to do anything to be a verified fan. I know I think I had to do some thing for Hamilton Doesn’t indicate that I need to do anything so I hope I don’t
Thank you, thank you! :)If only I didn't buy a ticket to see Beetlejuice that one night, I could have had an extra night to choose from. :)
I've been an Icon member since 2013 (and paid for Live Pass Access) so I missed the cut off for Legacy members who are pretty much guaranteed tickets. It sucks that I am now behind people with a Citibank card and lumped in with the unwashed masses. I am not hopeful I will get anything.
