St. Louis 12/16

Sorry if there is already a thread on this - I couldn't find it.

Does anyone have any information on the Savis Center GA line?

Also, does anyone know when the doors will open to the arena?

Thanks for any information, or leading me to the thread.

You're right...the show is on the 14th.

My anniversary is on the 16th. Hopefully my wife doesn't see this thread.

Honestly, you could get anything in the Midwest in the middle of December.

However, we usually don't get big storms until after the New Year, so you should be alright. It will probably be cold (30-40), but could be much colder if a storm comes through.

Two years ago the day after Thanksgiving was 80 degrees.

Prepare for cold regardless of forecast. During the Elevation tour (November), I did the GA line (it sleeted), and that area of downtown is a wind tunnel. The weather is exacerbated by the buildings, etc. I don't think the temperature was too bad, but it was an endurance test for us.

And I'm looking for a GA for this show too if anyone has any leads!!!! Please?

I think ETS still has some GA's. 180 bucks though.

They are kind of the "official" broker that U2 allows to sell their tickets. They are able to charge more money because they include other services with the tickets, like a pre concert party and transportation to the event.

Here is the link for the St. Louis packages, click on Find Your Package:

http://secure.etstours.com/Tickets/T...NO#FindPackage

If you were just primarily looking for a GA ticket you'd want to go with the Bronze package.

That sounds like a fair deal. One concern though: if you have to pick up your ticket at the Nite Out party, that screws you up in the GA line, right? After all, the doors open at ~6 pm. Is it early enough to let you get back in line? I can't run the risk of losing my spot in line, since I intend to be near the front of it. Has anyone else out there done the ETS party thing?

You can wait in line all day, leave to go pick up your tickets, maybe have a little of the free food and drinks, then come back in line before the doors open. The only problem with this ETS party is it isn't within walking distance, you'd have to drive to get there. So you'd need to make sure you had a car or ride available.

So you could leave around 4, go get the tickets, hang out a bit, if you're back by 5 you wouldn't have any problems.

Yep, I noticed that party time after I posted. So I just bought one of the tickets through ETS. It pains me to pay that much, and tickets usually surface en masse near show date, but tickets are bringing significantly more on ebay and still rising.

I think they said they've got about 9 of the GA's left, if anyone else's interested.

So, who's got my back when I show up early in line without a ticket?

I emailed the Savvis Center with this idea
got a useless email that my suggestions was going ot be given to the proper person - who knows if enough of us email them maybe (doubtful but maybe)

In LA lots of people in GA didn't have tickets. They were holding spots in the GA line and the box office line. It worked out for some of them.
