  50. Andrew September 11, 2018 at 2:35 pm #

    Wow. Considering last time we saw the Wailers in town (at the Star Theater) there were less people than have already signed up for this contest, hopefully Portland can show them a more packed house this time! They put on a great show and I recommend all that are asking for free tickets to go anyway. Also, I’d like some free tickets :D

  51. MacKenzie September 11, 2018 at 4:03 pm #

    I can’t even imagine how cool this would be to take my best friend with me!

    The last time I saw the Wailers, the show was stopped just a couple of songs into their set because the building the show was in, almost collapsed. This would be a great make-up!

  55. Christine Skorjanc September 13, 2018 at 4:31 pm #

    This would be the best needed date night for me & my guy – been dealing with mom with dementia etc a breather out would be great

  56. Eliz September 13, 2018 at 5:59 pm #

    The honor of seeing these Legendary musicians locally is beyond words! Prepping for neurosurgery on failed back surgery. Could really use the chillin time. Please, PDX Pipeline!

  57. Jane E. Zweig September 13, 2018 at 7:43 pm #

    I love the Alladin, and to see The Wailers there would be perfect! I moved to Portland a year ago and love the music scene! PDX is great and so is Portland Monthly for info on where to go. I saw Bob Marley in Santa Barbara 25 ? years ago
    and was on my feet the entire concert. I’d love to do the same at The Wailers.

  58. Shasha September 14, 2018 at 3:21 pm #
