    Got my tix on Saturday! Can’t wait!… And such an important cause too… My Brother lives in Stone Ridge and is being solicited to lease some of his land to the gas companies… So scary

    managed to snag a couple tix middle row B: evidently quick announcement – no pre-notification received for Egg members. (Hint- if ordering online- select ‘right front’ or ‘left front’, otherwise the
    ‘best available’ center options offered are already back to row N

  3. Mike says:

    Scored tix in the pitt, but with all those performers, I hope Natalie sings for more than just a half hour or so!

  4. Caroline MotherJudge says:

    And if you like this song, “Sally Ann,” you should see the Horseflies. They wrote it.

  5. Alice Smith Duncan says:

    If Ono cancelled, the $$ seems less realistic… why not drop it $25-50, and let more people attend (and ultimately raise more $$$ for the cause)?
