    AMES, Iowa- With the closing of the Sears Centre Arena on Oct. 1, the 2009 Chicago Invitational men’s basketball tournament (Nov. 27-28) has announced it has moved the event to the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavilion near downtown Chicago.

    Tickets already purchased over the phone or at Ticketmaster.com will be automatically credited. Tickets purchased at Ticketmaster retail outlets should be returned to the point of purchase.

    Iowa State will play St. Louis on Nov. 27 at 5 p.m. and will face either Notre Dame or Northwestern on Nov. 28 at 4:30 or 7 p.m. All games will be played at the UIC Pavilion. Liberty, Mississippi Valley State, Tennessee State and Kennesaw State will also participate in the tournament.

    Closing Oct. 1? Are you sure? I have Mannheim Steamroller tickets there for Nov. 20, and just called their box office - it's still on.

    I talked to ticketmaster and they refunded my tickets. Ticketmaster indicated the tickets for the UIC Pavilion would be on sale September 25.

    Thanks for the info. I hope I can get roughly the same tickets, had 1st row on the floor. My kids were really looking forward to it. If anyone is checking on hotels downtown, I checked last week. Friday night was $149.00 saturday jumped up to $399. Must be a bears game in town that weekend.

    I figured as soon as I posted that I might be wrong. Don't follow the bears much. Something must be going on downtown to drive the price up like that.

    The presale is good by invitation only I found out. You get 25% off all tickets if you have the password. Tickets for the general public go on sale on 9/25 at noon central time.

    Is there any chance that somebody might have this presale code?

    MBB tourney in Chicago (Nov. 27 & 28) -Moved

    At least for now, per Ticketmaster. Just got the e-mail below. I know there was some issues with the venue, but I thought it would get moved - not canceled.

    It's just four bucks (and I won't pursue it), but rather crappy Ticketmaster would get to keep that. I know it's not their fault the event was canceled, nor is it mine.

    Copied word for word what I got.

    Please do note the venue then, because I'd still like to go...if this thing is still taking place.

    I think when it was moved, Ticketmaster was no longer the holder of the tickets.
