    The show will include the usual skaters but one addition is Patrick Chan.

    If anyone knows the early booking code please post.

    IIRC, this is the first time Patrick has done CSOI. Exciting!

    There could be others in the "skaters to be named later" category :)

    On the SOI website it tells me that I can't purchase tickets until Dec. 7th - is there an early booking code?

    I assume you mean that the presale is only for selected venues? I don't see London on Ticketmaster. The Budweiser Gardens (previously John Labatt Centre) has their own box office, and they haven't announced a presale yet.

    It could just be a Ticketmaster presale.

    Same here. The code "PATRICK" is good until 11:59pm on Thursday, 6 December.

    All of the one ice tickets for Vancouver (Rogers Arena) are gone. Something called "Plaza Level" seating is listed as "limited." now gone, too.

    Glad to see Ashley's coming back for the 2013 tour. She was one of the highlights of the show this year. :)

    One change I need to do though...Remember to charge my camera's battery. I ended up w/a great seat last year and it wasn't until I'd pulled it out and was setting it up that I realized what I'd forgotten to do the night before. Got some great pics of Kurt, Shawn, Ashley and Cynthia and then when Kaitlyn and Andrew took the ice....

    I still can't believe I did that!!

    Try Skate, Patrick, Kurt and any other names of skaters. Go to your Victoria Arena site if they are not selling through ticket master.

    Has anyone been able to get presale tickets for the K-Rock Centre in Kingston? I am having no luck at all.

    IIRC, not all of the seats are available in the pre-sale. So those seats might not necessarily be gone; it's likely they won't be on sale until Friday.

    :eek: I always thought the point of pre-sale was to always have an advantage, but that's not the case if you want the special seats. Having had a skater land in my lap once, I avoid those seats like the plague.

    Buttle and Browning are incomparable. Nobody currently competing comes close.

    Just looking for tickets to the Vancouver show, Ticketmaster is offering a Stars on Ice Fan Club Premier Membership for $49.99 (I'm assuming that's per person)....I've never done this before, actually I've noticed it....it says you get a meet & greet an an exclusive gift at the show. Just wondering if anyone has done this before? Is it worth it? Is it just a handshake at the side of the ice or a more formal meeting? What's the gift? Any other benefits? Any info would be appreciated :)

    I did this last year in Toronto. It was fun. We got in early, got to watch the skaters warm up (no contact though), then we were taken to an area where we met the skaters (Cynthia and Joannie). They were seated at a table and you could get a photo with them and an autograph. The gift was a picture frame with a SOI logo. Mine went to Value Village pretty quick It was fun to do and we managed to have a few words with the skaters but couldn't really linger. We had a group of about 20 and it didn't last long. It's fun to do once if you haven't met a skater. I don't plan to do it again though. Been there, done that.
