Man, almost Had Tix for the 11th, had them in my cart and then got BOOTED!!!! It was then down too the show that I wanted too get into the most (the same as every year) the 13th (THE BASH!!!) Did not have alot of confidence but as if I was getting paid back from all my line and sidewalk dues that I've paid as RedHead Fanatic "BAM"!!! 7 Minutes after 1 Iwas the proud owner of 2 Tix!!!! Am still going too try for Dinner Tix on the 11th but either way feel truely blessed and "LUCKY" too get into my favorite show on the 13th! Even though the system did have some flaws and the fact that about 10,000 people were all crashing the site at the same time just wanted too say thanks Sammy for listening too the "MAJORITY" and letting us have the oppurtunity too see you Rock the CaboWabo again!!!! None of us know how long your going too keep doing this, but as long as you drag your Ass up their on stage we're going too be with you painting it RED! Thanks for always having the fans in mind first! Peace brother!!!!!

This might have worked out better for everyone if the "powers that be" would have stuck to the original plan and stopped tweeking the already tweeked way of setting it up.
Something needed to be done differently. I guess the line "Be carefule what you wish for" is true.

10yr vet of attending B-Bash shows in cabo with no problems of spending the night with my redhead friends on the street to get FREE tickets! We book our trip a year in advance for this week just to see Sammy, This year we had 6 people going to cabo ( the first Sammy show for my daughter) but guess what? Do to the great new system and getting booted off 3 times after making it to the payment screen the 6 of us scored 2 tickets!!! Maybe had something to do with trying to get tickets while all of us were at work hoping not to get fired!! Going to be a great couple of months figuring out which 4 get their vacation ruined!!
This is one lifelong Sammy fan that hopes things are different for next year!!!

Anybody have a single ticket for the 13th? Been going to this for six years and I feel like odd man out, I will meet you in line if you have an extra ticket, please help.

march079's picture

I am wondering how to do a trade. I have 2 tix for the 11th and 2 tix for the 13th. I need 4 tickets for the 13th and would consider a trade??? I was thinking I'd just do it down there, but how do you do it when they are under the same name?

Harleymomma08's picture

Woohoo!!! I worked out a trade so I can see Sammy all 4 shows!! I just love my Redhead frends!!

kaplanguy40's picture

No the system was not FOOL proof,Sammy asked people to ONLY buy 2 tickets for 1 show ONLY,so other people can get tickets but their are some of you redheads that BRAG about getting tickets to more than 1 show I say that is GREEDY ,if the system was fool proof people would have not been able to buy tickets for more than 1 show,the computer should have been able to recogize your usename and see that you had purchased tickets already and not let you buy for another show.That is how it should have been.If I could sell my vacation package I would.

johnv071's picture

also I forgot in my excitement of getting tickets. My youngest son and his girlfriend will be going to Cabo, her first time and his second.The first for both seeing Sammy on 10/13. we were all so lucky to get tickets and it's going to be a great family reunion in cabo!!!!

Ed Violick's picture

It sad to hear about all the people not getting through. I feel a lot of dedicated redheads didn't get tickets. I was lucky enough to get all 4 nights. I never missed a show waiting on line. Hopefully the people who complained about waiting on line will complain as much next year about the ticket system. Bring back the line. See U in Cabo!

BammBamm87's picture

I am so appreciative that they did it this way. It sucks planning a vacation and then spending it in the street + getting shut out and not getting in. What a relief knowing I'll finally be able to see a show... guaranteed.

RRVICGO55's picture

I got tickets for 2 shows and I feel I am being greedy in a way as there are several that got none! We need to be grateful for what we have and stop complaining! You could have none! I planned on only going to at least one show but was fortunate to get tickets to 10/8 and 10/9 which is perfect as they are the weekend shows and the least amount of time I take off of work the better.

johnv071's picture

System worked great for me so I am very fortunate. It was very nerve racking not knowing if I was going to get tickets but everything worked out well. Now I can plan other activities in cabo and not have to worry about sleep or if I will get tickets. It's going to be a great bash this year.

mj8ball1's picture

I feel very lucky to have gotten tix to the 11th and 13th. It will be our first trip to Cabo. Now our trip will be complete. Look forward to meeting a bunch of new REDHEADS!!!!

webermic's picture

I agree ticket system no so good. I've been in Cabo for the past five years during this time and have not gone to one of his concerts yet. I thought being able to buy tickets on line would be easy but forget that. We to tried several times. Got to the point of paying and KICKED OUT. Oh well, there was 8 of us and I know at least 6 of us do not have tickets.

Valerie Vette Vincent's picture

You got tickets to 2 shows and are complaining? Wow! If everyone was like you then only 1/4 of the people who would be grateful to see just One show wouldn't get to. Apparently you are VERY special. Since it's your last show, maybe other more grateful people will get in next year.

harperjerri's picture

EPIC FAIL. After years of telling my friends how fun THIS week is in Cabo, I finally talked them into it. We are a group of five with flights paid for and room reservations at the Mar. WITH NO TICKETS!! to see any of the shows. It's a big ol' world out there with lots of other cities and cultures to experience. Why would we all meet HERE again if we have no chance after online ticket sales to see the shows? It's our last trip. We won't be back.

kaplanguy40's picture

I thought we was to buy 2 tickets to just 1 show so eveyone could have a chance to see a least 1 show,but I guess they have greedy people out there and do not care about the rest of us, that purchased tickets to more than just 1 show, now I have a trip booked to Cabo(for 6 months ahead of time) with NO TICKETS.BRING BACK THE OLD SYSTEM.

bradleyr051's picture

I definitely see the benefits of purchasing tix for the four shows as our trip to Cabo is a vacation and while Sammy and the shows are what bring us there, I must admit that having the extra hours on our hands will only enhance the Cabo experience for us.
I do sympathize with those people who enjoyed their time in those lineups, they are a fanatical breed and I admire that!
I hope that the new system won't keep those die hards away as I've met so many wonderful people that I would hate to see stay away this year because of the new system.
I was one of the lucky ones to get tix for all 4 shows and look forward to my time face down in Cabo!
Cheers to all the Redheads!
Remember it is what it is, so lets just make the best of it!

Yes, Warden, I think you are.

RACER-X's picture

I'll Be running to my room at the Mar de.. for refills!! I'm in the street this year... Happily!!
See you all there!!

south33's picture

OK, I got tix for all 4 shows and feel VERY fortunate. Connection issues and lord knows how many people trying to get to the same web address.........

I was there for the hurricane in 08. 14th in line and got kicked out at 2 A.M. It was one of the best times I've had in Cabo. Sleeping on the street, partying in a hurricane, with my Redhead buddies!!

I agree with Upfront, while I have met some jerks (Can count on 1 hand) I have met some of the coolest people while IN LINE ON THE STREET!!

Denise and Cary, Iowa Doug and Diane, KB, Gina Rose, Sherry and Rhea, Brando, Clegger, Aurora Mike, Dude, Jacque and Greg and God knows how many other people we know on sight. We love you guys and would have never met you if not for the dreaded "Line Time"!!

This whole system takes away from that experience. At least with line time, you earned your tickets and it wasn't left up to the whim of some computer. I feel for those that didn't get any tickets, please put it back the way it was.

See you all FDIC 10/08-10/15

Harleymomma08's picture

Don't get me wrong...I am glad I got tickets for 2 of the shows (maybe even 3 show - a friend was trying too), but it was so fustrating getting to the end, thinking you have 10/13 tickets in hand, and didn't like the information or Pay Pal didn't work or getting the kick-out of the system??
I am grateful for not having to sleep on the sidewalk...but I may for 1 night just to try and get dinner tickets for the 13th.

Congrats to everyone who got tickets for all 4 shows!! I can't wait to be face down in Cabo again!!

amis030's picture

Me too, and same with my mom. I was so excited, twice it dropped me. Dinner anyone? See ya in line my friends~

truck371's picture

I'm a little confused. I got an email confirmation from pay-pal, but nothing from redrockertickets. It said I got 2 tickets, but I haven't recieved any type of comfirmation from redrockertickets??? What does that mean????? HELP!!!!

Krakensole's picture

There is no solution that will make everyone happy to be honest. I am glad I got my tickets to the show. I am looking forward to the week in Cabo on the beach rather than the street.

kaplanguy40's picture

The new system SUCKED big time

truck371's picture

Got tix for the 13th. A little confused though...I recieved a receipt from pay-pal but not from red-rocker tickets. I went through all the steps and it said I got 2, but all I recieved via email is a pay-pal receipt. Does that mean I'm ok???? HELP!!!

hrcdave's picture

do line time and you would get in always worked for me and the and 498 other people

darleneh092's picture

Same thing happened to me too - I am so disappointed!

danasand's picture

I was kicked out of paypal twice. Tried for the 11th and again the 13th. I have paypal but had not used it before. Are they always trouble? If so I will get rid of it. 3 of us are going 2 of us will see one show. This is not better for us Sammy. We have always seen at least 3 shows a trip.I don't want to stand in the parking lot. So I guess I will stay at the hotel. I want from a CaboRat to a couch potato to a barfly. I have a feeling this trip will suck.

hrcdave's picture

the streak is broken no cabo for me this year hopefully next year sammy will sell tickets on a weekend or better yet not sell tickets at all or if he wants to sell tickets sell the dinner show tickets had no luck today for the 11 0r the 13 i really would like to see a poll on this subject because everyone i talk to likes it the way it was by a wide margin just my 55 cents

serbian76's picture

this was so BS, I was clicking to go to the second step to checkout and the next screen that comes up tells me that my cart was empty!!!!! WTF, absolute garbage, the site doesn't even list the show for the 13th anymore!!!

UpFrontFanatic's picture

this REDhead is grateful for the new system...I've spent too much time on the sidewalk. Met some great(and some not so great)folks over the years, but looking forward to the luxury I paid for on my vacation rather than the noise and dirt of the street(not to mention threats of hurricanes and rains that potentially flood). Ticketing system worked perfectly for me and a number of friends --thanks! \m/

The Warden's picture

Am I the only one who actually liked the system? Sure it wasn't perfect. But neither is flying down, paying for a hotel, sleeping on the street... and still not getting in!

amberd021's picture

I'm going to CABO in the FALL!!

Pay pal sucks!

ibrichjr's picture

4 for 4... got tix to all the shows. Not happy about this at all! Why you ask? Because I know of over two dozen close Cabo Family / Redhead members who could not "score" tix, not even for one show. Computer issues, web site shut down, or they were at work, yada yada yada, it does not matter. They won’t be standing next to me as we have done for years. I’ll still have a good time, as well as everyone else who was lucky to grab tix, but it won’t be the same.

We never had a problem getting tickets before… even when the rain chased the line sitters away. We still got in. We looked out not only for our friends and family, but for those Redheads – and newbies - we didn’t even know. The Mexican mafia and the resort folks who “bought” their tickets, though annoying, still did not bother us because for the most part everyone got in. Those of you who have never been to Cabo and stated that you did not go because you did not want to risk losing money and not get into a show, just don’t get it. You could have gotten in! My first year I went solo, not know anyone, or anything about the lines, and I still got in… to all of the shows! All I have to say to you is get a life… you just… and never will (ever)… get it.

The reality is, and this is my opinion, Sammy wanted to control the line issue… health department, as well as local police, seem to have been riding him about the lines. Could have easily gotten rid of that issue by not allowing lines to start until 5 or 6am, we saw it happen before and it worked. I also feel it is a money issue… why not cash in on hardcore fans which drive across country, or come from overseas, to see Sammy, the Wabos, and Chickenfoot. Make sense, base economics… right?

I’ll be pissed if I see people scalping tix above and beyond the cost… I have a feeling that may happen… this sux Sammy. I love ya, but I won’t have most of MY Redhead family around me as you play yet another great show. Kind of sad.

One last note… I won’t be drinking during the shows… you basically got me beer money out of the ticket cost.

patrickv005's picture

I got my tickets for the 13th. Woohoo!! Thanks to all the readheads who posted the info on the site through the last week to keep us informed. Thought I was going to get kicked off at the payment step but the refresh button worked for me.

Hillshooter's picture

I first want to say Yes I did get tickets for the 9th. And were going to rock with Sammy. But this has really been a frustrating experience. A group us already had bought airfare and lodging and were ready for standing in line and then I’m told by friends per your web site this is what the fans wanted. Someone please show how this works better than how it was in the past. If you wanted tickets bad enough you waited in a line and got to party to boot and meet other like people that are now life friends. What was this have a ticket in your check out have it at the last part of check out 3 of 3 and then have the dam ticketing site crash. There has to be better way Sammy. We love you. And this was a great big hassle. Everyone I talked to had it crash at least once. Please change it back or at least look at better way than this. Redheads speak up and tell them this was wrong. I’d love to hear from anyone that had a trouble free time of this. H.A.S.S.L.E. We’ll at least we know the money will go to a good place. This might be end of the fun as we knew it. Peace and I’ll see my brothers and sisters down there. Bummed too say the least. He who had the best connection wins. Boo Hiss. Sammy Please ask the crowd at the shows what they thought and go from there.

I had tickets for the 13th but kept getting kicked out or timed out. Very frustrating. Just hope we can get dinner tickets. It's our first time going to Cabo. We did get tickets for the 11th, which is great.

ARamosTX's picture

Does anyone know if there will be any tickets for sale prior to the show's, I thought I read that they were selling approx 500 and the occupancy is around 850?

Whew! We got tickets for the 11th and the 13th. Lucky! Looking forward to the shows!!! Peace!

Holy Crap! Do I feel lucky. I couldn't get tickets on the 11th from my home PC so I hauled donkey into work to get on a faster connection. Was able to get 'em for the 13th show. WHEW! I will see you guys down there.
