Pre-sales through the band’s Ten Club begin March 15 for established, dues-paying members. According to an announcement on the band’s Web site, registering and purchasing a membership now will not make you eligible for pre-sales. The only way to get in on the pre-sale is through, and you must pay for your tickets using a VISA or Mastercard.
