My advice (though since this is a new season and the system could have changed, but I doubt it) would be to wait if you don't see a good seat Saturday. The production releases usually come within a few days of the show and often some good, and sometimes great seats pop.(I usually go this route, only buying a seat I really want early, passing on the mediocre in hopes of doing better later, it works more often than not, though not fool-proof). You just need to be vigilant checking TM a few times daily for released seats, especially the closer to show date. Of course this is an odd situation since there are only 19 days from on-sale to show, so they may drop more of the good seats right away than normal, so Saturday may produce some good seats. I jst hope its not too cold on May 20.

Rik Emmett, eh...Fight the Good Fight baby.

Hewson, I was able to crack the code for the password and got several hits for sec 7 mostly. Then got one for sec 1. So I'd say you were right about not giving up all the good seats in the presale. I didn't continue though cause I imagine you have to pay with an AMEX card. Wonder what happens if you try to pay with another card. Hate to do it and it lets you then they end up cancelling your order. Oh well, it was fun cracking the code just to see what kind of seats I would have got anyway. BTW, anyone know if they are gonna have an opening act? Guess we won't know till we get there. Nothing saying on the internet anywhere.

I could have told you the code, its the 800 # on the back of Amex cards, I always like to check, but like you said can't actually buy without the Amex card. I tried once to see what would happen, it specifically looks for an Amex card # or you can't complete the order.

I'm sure there's gonna be an oipening act, but no idea who. Nothing on Pollstar as of yet.

So I ended up in Sec 3 row 8. Didn't wait for Saturday tho. I ended up getting them on ebay thursday (my first time getting tics on ebay). Seller had 514 feedback with 100% positive so hopefully all will be well. Only paid 50 more than it would have cost me on ticketmaster anyway but I just have to sit in lower section at least once. It looks pretty awesome down there. Tried Saturday for the hell of it and the best hits I got were for sec's 4, 5 & 6. Weather keeps up like this then it shouldn't be too cold although I went with my wife in June 2 years ago and we froze. Being in the open reserved at the time didn't help much either.

Oh yeah, was wondering if there's a huge difference in the volume from being in sec 1 -3 versus say sec 7. The Who are the loudest band I've seen yet. The last time I was in 7 and it was loud. I've never worn any earplugs to any concert before but was debating whether to bring some just in case being that close.

I would say bring earplugs just to be safe, I always bring them to every show I go to these days, as soon as they hit the satge you can determine whether to "plug" them in.
In terms of difference in sound level, its not dramatic, but in 3 (or 1) depending on how they set up you could be in direct path of stacks if they set them up on the side.

Thanks to my newborn, I nodded off and missed the on sale, by the time I jumped on line, best I saw was sect 7. But it sounds like I didn't miss anything anyway (which I've come to expect). So I'll be doing my normal release search.

It hurts that they don't tour much up north of the border. Really wish I could go too. There's no Substitute.



As well, it would be nice if their new material showed up on an album that was... new. No more of this AC/DC style re-issuing with a few previously unreleased tracks. Yet I buy them anyway...

Nice....awesome seats...dead center. Can't get any better than that. Hey, if you feel like it, meet me outside entrance to sec3 around 7 and I'll buy you a beer. I'll be wearing a black "Alltel Racing" hat. Still can't find anything on the net about who opens for them. Really won't know till we're there I guess. Definitly won't be Plant again. I was thinking maybe Bryan Adams or something but who knows.

Not sure if I will be there by 7 or not, hafta take the wife to a 2:30 appointment in Beverly, so if traffic is bad, I might be a later arrival. Check back on this thread Thurs AM, and we'll try to arrange to meet, I'll have my wardrobe figured out by then.

Pollstar still only lists The Who, no other acts...maybe they'll hit stage at 7:30 and play a 3 plus hour set...probably not.

I'm gonna have on my Green Notre Dame football jersey, with #3 (Joe Montana, not Rick Mirer) on it. Hopefully if I'm there by 7PM I'll try to find you outside of sect. 3 entry. If not, enjoy the show.

Well, The Who totally rocked as usual and Real Good Looking Boy sounds pretty good live. Hewson, was great to finally meet up with you for a few. I didn't end up wearing any earplugs and wasn't nearly as deaf as the last time I saw them. I guess because of where I sat the large speakers hanging from the rafters were above me and the sound must have went over me. Zooropa, sorry about hijacking your thread, I don't have private messaging.
