Thanks, Karissa! I'll just wait and hope I can get good tickets on EC's pre-sale!!
I'm not sure if or how it will affect the VIP for Eric but I know that Kenny fan club members do get first shot at the tickets. The website I think shows that most go on sale for them 11/29. Hopefully Eric's pre-sale will have a certain amount of pit/sandbar tickets too and not just the Kenny fc.
