07:20 pm - NOT sold out
Even though the site says sold out, I went to Ticketmaster online and got my husband 2 tickets to see the Pogues on March 17th. (He's working in NYC that weekend, I'm stuck here in Iowa, no reason he shouldn't have fun though). I was going to get one of the other days and thought, hrm, let me see if there is ANYTHING available and there was no problem picking up tickets (except the price, owtch).

So before you look for scalpers or go another day, check Ticketmaster if you wanted to go on the 17th. (And don't kill me if somehow I bought the last two available or something.)

Cheers...
