    Goldstar https://www.goldstar.com has comp AXPONA tickets. There is a "service fee" of like 7$ per. Still cheaper then going to AXPONA's web site or door prices. If you haven't used Goldstar, sign up is free. The wife and I use Goldstar quite often to see shows at a much cheaper price.

    I know Saturday is usually the day we do dinner after the show but i would like to see her. Maybe we can make reservations at the steak place that's inside the hotel for 530 and still see her play if anyone is interested.

    On a side note, i picked up a gold pass this year.

    I would like to see Rickie as well. That will be worth staying late for.
  • erniejadeerniejade Posts: 5,327
    I am making a reservation for Sam and Harry's inside the Renaissance April 18th at 5:45 PM. It will not let me make a reservation for more then 10. I have 3 confirmed ( my wife, Mario and myself) who else would like to join us for dinner? If we have more then 10, someone will need to make a separate reservation.

    I figure eating at the restaurant on site will be easier to see Rickie's concert that starts at 8 PM.

    I did a quick perview of the exhibitors and I don't see Polk listed. Are they missing the opportunity to showcase their new Legend series and especially the L-800 SDA's to a large crowd in the Chicago-area? If so, I will be very disappointed if indeed this is the year I can finally make it down there, I was really hoping to be able to get ears on the new Legend SDA's in a proper set-up. I hope I am incorrect and just missed their name on the list of exhibitors. Anybody know?

    Neither Polk nor Marantz is on the exhibitor list on the Axpona website, but Classé is.

    If Polk doesn't have the L800s at Axpona it would be a serious oversight and epic marketing blunder.
