    I don't know about anyone else but I'm still hanging on to the release date of 11/2 given by Kevin Byrne on two separate occasions. When Nov. 2 comes and goes without a Storm, I will then look to the 9th and then the 16th.

    Your know your band is washed up when people come to see a phone more than they come to see you lol.

    also those of us not going are jealous, but have a good time ya'all. Free storms for those that attend? That'd be nice.

    The Fighters of Foo and QOTSA? Dude, I'm totally there. Only in LA man.......(or the OC in my scenario, lol).

    btw........Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters are far from being "washed up"..... but that's just me

    i'm a n00b here to crackberry, but i must chime in that i agree with hbcubs, those two bands are far from being washed up... but to each their own :-)

    and yeah, that would be sweet if the release is sooner than later....

    Hmm...this is pretty interesting. I guess we'll see some cool stuff come tomorrow night.

    Both bands rock, by the way.

    Not always. Launch parties can mean they just want to introduce the public to it...not let us get our hands on it!

    Release date doesn't seem likely this weekend...i mean, it takes at least a day to mail it and another day to get it into inventory/sales

    does anyone remember when training is supposed to be finished for verizon employees? I believe the date is definitely not by this week and indicates a likely 15th release...

    Wow - that's going to be one **** of a party. FF and QOTSA aren't washed up. I'm sure the crowd will be 50/50 though - there for the BB or the bands - LOL

    And to be fair, John Mayer shows have BB presence and he is NOT washed up either.

    FF and QoTSA are far from washed up...the Foo is one of the biggest selling bands of this era.

    This is good news anyway you slice it....the time is coming soon....

    So I'm guessing that a release date and price would HAVE to be announced at this thing tonight... it would be kinda stupid if they didn't.

    Ok I'm on the list but they don't let you bring a friend? I dunno if I wanna go by myself. Will it be worth it?

    So I just got a text stating that I won the ticket........however, in order to get in, you have to be one of the first 800 and show the winning text message.

    yes...you will be the hero who gets to tell all of us some good news!!!!

    Ehhh.... I have high expectations. I wanna leave with a Storm haha. I told my gf to text it too so she can try to go but it might be too late. It's lame how they don't let you bring a guest. I dunno if I wanna go by myself.

    I agree, I just got a text saying I won, I have to be there before 400 other people show up... hmmm... what's the likeliness of that happening??
    Plus no guest?! I really don't want to go alone

    You will probably get a free Storm -

    Wish they would have this in the NoVA area -

    I also "won" a ticket but am wondering, what are the chances of getting in? My husband didn't win a ticket (we both texted the number last night). BUT this morning, he texted my response and got the same auto message as me that he has to show that text and be one of the first 800 people to get in. Are they really going to turn away all those people?
