Tears for Fears will be at Pechanga Casino and Resort on the 8th of October. Tickets for this show were available through Ticketmaster and some say through the venue (they may have a Ticketmaster box office on site like some – we’ve purchased tickets like that before and got great seats). However, as of right now, it looks like this show is sold out! Great for the band, not so cool for any fans that didn’t have time to get seats earlier. We are seeing a bit of chatter about the prices being higher than the $100 max market rate. Yeah, third party sellers…that’s the ugly part of it. If you can tolerate it for now, tickets are available via third party sites. You can email directly for info on how to navigate those.
Venue: The show will take place on site meaning the concert hall is inside. The entertainment center is adjacent to the comedy club on the northmost side of the building. If you have trouble walking, you may want to drive around to the north casino entrance door and that way you’re not so far from the venue. Some may snicker at that but if you have anxiety, show excitement nerves or any other situation that makes walking difficult (sometimes people come straight from a mere week of recovery after surgery to these shows) you’ll want to know how to do this in the most relaxing way. Your fellow travel fans are thinking of you. 😉
Address: 45000 Pechanga Parkway, Temecula, CA 92592
Accommodations: The venue’s resort notes that rooms are sold out during the show date range. Please call to make sure before booking elsewhere. You can check-in on the 7th but that’s the night of the TFF in AZ show. Checking in on the 8th just isn’t an option online. So, phone them (1-888-PECHANGA). Or, in order to save a little cash, we suggest staying at the Ramada Temecula and maybe set up a spa date there at the casino so you can enjoy the amazing things they have to offer and be nice a relaxed before the show. Expect to pay about $110 after taxes per night at the Ramada. In this case it’s good if travel fans are staying on site. We try to get a Cabana. If you are staying at the resort, get a Cabana if you’d like, reserve one in advance. Some of our best memories have been hanging out by the pool in one until a few hours before showtime.
Airfare: Delta has flights starting in the high 300s and going well up into 700s for LAX. It’s right in between L.A. and San Diego so, take your pick. Price will even out when you consider ground transportation. If you’re coming from the East Coast, fly into LAX because it’s easier to get a flight out of there to just about anywhere than it is to leave out of San Diego. That’s just personal experience. However, if you’re going to do Humphreys TFF show, then maybe San Diego is best. You can do a round trip ticket at a lower fee vs. leaving from two different airports. So, if you’re doing just one, i.e. Temecula, do LAX, if you’re doing both shows fly into San Diego. There are lots of combinations and ways to do this without spending too much but the safe bet is the above. Again, this is from experience. Geri mentioned using Ontario California’s airport for these shows. That’s something to seriously consider.
Meet and Greets/Fan Fun: No word on Meet and Greets. As you can see from the photo above, these things often happen at random. As far as fans hanging out, we’ve got about 10 travel fans confirmed in this area but several more are flying in because they like Humphreys’ venue and plan to attend that show as well. So, it’s a great opportunity to really live it up on these last few days of the tour. There’s something about the last few shows of Tears for Fears’ tours, there’s a magic that fills the air and anything can happen. Make it good!
