    Hi,
    It’s Sat Sept 23 10 pm and tickets for the Nov 6 tribute already Sold Out….
    Any chance of a 2nd concert being added?
    We had the deep pleasure of seeing Leonard’s last 2 tours (stunning and compelling) plus one in the 90’s, and though can’t afford a scalper’s sale, would love the opportunity to take in this tribute by such an amazing group of artists.
    Sad in Toronto….

      All I can tell you now is that the app isn’t available yet. There doesn’t seem to be a definite release date so far. As soon as the folks in charge set the date, I’ll post it.
