Post by hula girlzs »

Live here in Hawaii,been thinking about getting tickets to the Vegas show. With the cost of our air fare;hotel etc.etc. it will be big bucks...no whammys.So does anyone know of a possiable date or even if J.B will play Hawaii? Also if we do get to Vegas where to stay? Any tips? This will be our first time going out of state for a concert.Lots of nice people post here so not to worried once we get to Vegas.Because of the time diffrenceI dont know what that will do for me getting tickets. Well I will cross my fingers that someone has heard about Hawaii date ....

Since Jimmy was in Hawaii earlier this year, I wouldn't count on him going back really soon, though you never know. If you really want to see a show soon, I'd go to Vegas or San Diego.

I'm not going to Vegas, so I haven't paid much attention to the planning, but there are lots of folks going to the Oct 23rd show, and here's that thread: http://www.buffettnews.com/forum/viewto ... highlight=

If money is a big issue, you might consider the San Diego show. EVERYTHING will be cheaper there. The tradeoffs are: it's not Vegas, if you like to gamble, etc, and I think fewer people from here will be in San Diego.

As far as airfare, have you checked Hawaiian Air? I know they were running specials.

You can get to Vegas and stay in Vegas for a reasonable price. I know Hawaiian Air has some great rates to Vegas. If you look on expedia.com, you can find hotel rooms in vegas in all price ranges. The big expense is your tickets to the Vegas show. The good seats are going for $210 a piece (that's not a scalper price, that's the ticketmaster price). As much as I like Vegas, SchoolGirlHeart has a good point - San Diego may be cheaper. If you plan to go to Vegas, keep in mind that tickets go on sale Saturday at 10am Vegas time. As you know, you need to be at your computer at 7am your time to get the best seats. Hope you make it to Vegas. I will be there for the 23rd show. By the way, Caesars palace has a terrific Hawaiin restaurant. It is appropriately named 808 - I'm sure you recognize the area code. Good luck.

P.S. I got lost in Hilo several years ago. Went to the volcano, and tried to get back to my hotel the long way. I was not brave enough to try Saddle road at night. I love your island.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

All I can say,( from the inside scoop at M'Ville) is if any one is planning on being in Vegas that week (10/16-10/23) prepare to have the time of your life. They are calling it "Buffett Week". :pirate:

Key Largo Hotel has decent rates and will be hosting one of the preparties.

If you live in the islands...you get a locals rate to the mainland...

If you weren't able to get tickets on Saturday I know that several BNER'S including myself have extra tickets for the October 23rd show on the Ticket Exchange page for face value plus ticketmaster fees. At least you won't have to pay high prices from those darn scalpers!!!! :D
