Sorry to sound like a grump but I'm not best pleased with the promotion to buy the new album via iTunes to get a pre-sale password for US shows :
1) Most of the true fans will have pre-ordered the album long before this offer came out and already have it now
2) We live in UK but go to US and other countries to see the shows but as it is exclusive to US iTunes we couldn't anyhow so if we want good seats we will end up paying a premium
3) It means that the fans in the category of 1 above will buy again from iTunes to get the pasword - my cynical mind wonders if this was the intention of the management espexially after the offer was advertised quite late in the day when fans have already bought or pre-ordered from elewhere? If so that sucks - I hope I'm wrong.
