well of course they don't actually have the tickets in hand just anticipating them prior to the presales and general sale which are this week with the general sale end of this week or on April 6th.

Yep! If you read the fine print under the area listed they say "possible upgrade" so likely they are listing the seats in the worst section so that they can "upgrade" the (stupid) buyer once the scalping websites have them in hand. Nice, right? GAs going for $975 each on one of those sites. You are better off bidding on the RED auction, at least some of the absurd price goes to charity. Oy!

I got two $95 seats in section 532 yesterday from the venue presale. I can't decide if I really want those, though. I'm taking my dad, and he doesn't want to do GA. I also can't afford really good seats. I'm just not excited about sitting in the upper level, especially for almost twice the price of GA. Makes no sense. I'm thinking about getting GA, not lining up, and just staying near the back of the field so I don't have to drag my dad into the crowd.

But yeah, I'm going. I'll be somewhere in the building. Of that much I am sure.

Why not get the "Lawn GA" tickets? Last time I check they were still available in the UVA Pre-Sale and they are only 30 bucks. The lawn is elevated so you will have a great view and it isn't all that much further back than being in the back of the GA field.

Yeah, I might think about that. The field section looks really far away, but I guess so is the back of the field. I've never been to the stadium before, so it's hard for me to visualize just how big the place is.

I might just keep my seats. I'm not sure I can convince my dad to stand for that many hours, anyway. He did GA with me in St. Louis last tour, and he was extremely cranky at the end of the night.

Hmmm....
I just picked up 2 from the Presale,...in section 108, row Q.
They look decent from the seating chart?....But I am new to the area, and have never been to the stadium,...so I really have no idea what to expect.....
