    As long as there's no boxing super fights in Vegas (I'm looking at you Canelo/GGG), I'll make my return! Sources say that Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2 is in May.

    The early bird pass is just too good to pass up. But I don't know if I can do all three days again next year.

    I wonder why only Chicago early bird tickets are going on sale tomorrow. Last year, they did early bird passes for Denver and Chicago the same day.

    Their website says Denver dates coming soon, so they must be waiting to sell tickets until the dates are locked.

    I think it's interesting they're still at Douglas Park. I feel like there has been a good amount of grumbling recently about it and really thought this was the year they got kicked to the suburbs. I'm happy it's still in the city though.

    I have had zero issues with Douglas Park. Parking sucks but that's just expected when I go to the city.

    I actually find parking at Douglas way easier than at Humboldt. I prefer everything about Douglas, personally.

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    If tickets aren't crazy expensive by the time I get my first check at my job, I'd grab one.

    hello. Supporter

    Can't wait. Did Riot Chicago for the first time this year. Easily coming back next year and grabbing tickets tomorrow! What a blast

    I had so much fun last year. I only got to go Saturday, but it was such a treat. Still can't believe I got to see Death Cab and one of MCS's last shows.

    Yikes! From $100 to $130. Hopefully that means they got some big headliners.

    Bummed about the price increase, but I'm still going to go for it. I'm assuming this means the prices of the standard 3-day passes in May will also be increased.

    No GA 3 day passes available?

    The $129 passes sold out instantly. I was on right at 10am. They are up to $149 already.

    hello. Supporter

    That was crazy fast. Didn't get $130 but grabbed a $150.
    For anybody wondering, it came to about $175 after fees.

    I checked right at 10 AM also and same thing. I wonder how many they actually made available.

    I grabbed two for my brother and I and an extra one just in case. Every year I have a friend who wants to go but doesn't want to spend money for the final tier priced tickets.

    I got two at $129.
     
  25. just impulse bought two tickets, not sure yet whether I regret the decision.
