No presale.

One group that BS absolutely refuses to acknowledge (unlike such bands as the GD, PJ, or U2) is his rabid fan base of diehards; you know, those of us who feel deprived if we got in to only three of the five Christmas shows.

No passwords, no fanclub or newletter presales, nada. They go on sale when they go on sale, i.e., the next two Saturdays for the US dates.....

There may not be for this tour, but on the last one VH1 had a pre-sale for his shows.

Consider:

it's to promote an album with 15 new songs

it's only one show per city, at least until spring of 2003

the prices that other major acts are charging for just the mediocre seats

I dunno. Is it worth it to go to an NFL playoff game when you could watch it on TV for free? Is it worth it to go to Paris and tour the Louvre when you can just look at a picture of the Mona Lisa in a book? Is it worth it to have sex with someone when you can just rent a porno intead?

As far as I know, there's no word at all on the Chicago date.
