Well, guys if you missed out on any of the Eddie Vedder Texas shows, you are in luck. Seems Ed has added two more dates to the tour in Texas, including adding a show in El Paso. Here's the email I got from the 10 Club:

Hello MARIO,
We are happy to announce that Eddie Vedder has added an El Paso, TX show and a second Houston, TX show to his 2012 solo tour:
April 17- El Paso, TX at Plaza Theater
April 23- Houston, TX at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts
(For a full list of tour dates, please visit:
Glen Hansard will open the shows.
A Ten Club ticket drawing will be held for all eligible members for a chance to purchase pre-sale tickets. 
- Only members active as of Sunday, February 5th at 3:59pm PST are eligible for this fan club pre-sale. 
- New memberships purchased after that date and time are not eligible for this pre-sale.
- Expired members who did not renew by the deadline, but are still within their grace period are not considered active members and are not eligible for this pre-sale. Your grace period applies to retaining seniority status only.
-You must use this email address when entering the contest otherwise your entry will be considered invalid:
NOTE: Drawing Limitations:
- We welcome all eligible members to enter the drawing regardless of whether or not you already have fan club pre-sale tickets to a different show on this tour.
-  You may enter for both shows.  However, if you are selected for both shows, please know you will automatically be charged for both.  Please do not enter for a show you are not prepared to pay for.
-All entrants will be notified of their drawing status regardless of whether or not their name was drawn for a pair tickets.  Please visit this link to follow the pre-sale status:
Step 1.
Click the link(s) below that corresponds to the show(s) you would like to attend. The link will direct you to a PayPal page where you will be asked to fill out a form.  This form is your drawing entry form.
Step 2. 
Fill out the form and click "review and continue".  Your card will not be charged.  However, by entering your credit card information, your card will be temporarily pre-authorized for the price of the pair of tickets. The funds will be held until the end of the drawing.
 ***Please read the Important Drawing Entry Form Info below before completing this step!
Step 3.
Review your order information and click "Pay Now". You will be given a receipt number and an authorization email from PayPal (please allow several hours for email delivery). 
Step 4. 
On Thursday, February 9th at 9AM PST, Ten Club will begin to conduct a drawing using our computerized random selection process for each show.  Once all names are selected, we will email drawing entrants notifying them if they have been selected or not. Please follow this link for live updates on the drawing status:
Step 5.
Ten Club will next complete the selected members ticket order by charging the credit card. For those who were not selected during the drawing, we will void the authorization releasing the funds back to the card.
Step 6.
Ten Club will email all selected members closer to the show date with further details and instructions on will call and early entry procedures. 
Step 7. 
Enjoy the show!
- When drawing names, we will be verifying eligible members using your Ten Club email address.  When filling out the PayPal form be sure to enter that email address associated with your Ten Club account, otherwise your entry will not be valid.
- If selected, for one or both shows, your card will be charged and you will be expected to attend the show(s). No Cancellations, Exchanges, or Name Transfers. Please do not enter for a show you are not certain you are able to attend.
-DO NOT use the "Bill Me Later" option at PayPal checkout.  Those using this payment method will be eliminated from the drawing.
- You are required to enter a billing name and address.  Tickets are not mailed in advance; this is only for billing purposes.  As always, the tickets will be under the fan club member’s name, not the credit card holders name.  
-For members with pre-existing PayPal accounts.  The email address associated with your PayPal account must match the email address associated with your Ten Club account, otherwise your entry will be eliminated. If those email addresses currently do not match, either check out as a guest or change your PayPal associated email address to the email address in your Ten Club account before submitting your order. 
- Updating your PayPal email address to your Ten Club email address after you’ve already entered the drawing will not make you eligible as the change will have taken place after PayPal has already submitted your entry to Ten Club.
-When entering the drawing you are only AUTHORIZING your card.  An authorization is a temporary freeze of funds.  It is not an actual charge.  If your name is selected in the drawing the authorization will become an actual charge.  However if your name is not selected, we will cancel the authorization releasing the funds back to your card.
