Title: $70 seats close to stage in lower level in Philly!! Go get 'em if you can!
Post by: dawnboo on January 11, 2017, 01:22:28 PM
Now that the initial frenzy is over, I can see seat maps for each venue with available tickets. I looked at Philly. ALERT!! There are actually some $70 seats in Sections 123 and 136 on the back corners of the stage. If you can't see a seat map, I think you could get those to come up by selecting lower level and $70 as your filters. I wish I had known before I dropped $280 on seats a section away.

You think those back corner seats will be good?
Looks like it from the map and we had similar seats at Madison Square Garden for I&E and they were great, but that stage setup was wide open with nothing blocking the view.
But the fact that they are so cheap makes me nervous that the way the stage will be setup for this show will make them not great seats. I wonder if there will be a big screen on the back of the stage that won't be very visible from those sections.

I was in those same back corner seats at MSG and they were great! I'm not sure about this show... I suspect they may be considered 'obstructed' or something like that. But since I am going to several shows, I would probably would have taken them to save myself some cash. But I'm sure our dear friends at Ticketmaster aren't going to let me exchange my tickets for cheaper ones!  ;)

Had those types of seats at Oracle for Springsteen and LOVED those seats!

That's what I am going after at Levi's stadium tomorrow then!

So to get those you advise to choose the "100 level" and the $70 price range? In the stadium I am going to?

I'm sorry -- I just saw this. Yes, that's what I would recommend. I hope you were able to get what you wanted!

I secured 2 Philly Section 110 for $70 each at 935am (EST) with WIRE Pre-Sale.  The filter wasn't giving me these ticket options, message kept saying no tickets available.  I stayed patient and kept releasing the 200 level tickets and the expensive lower levels when using Any Price/Best Available.  I suggest using the ticketmaster app, it was best option for me.  I think these are great value considering my friend only needed Philly and and was only able to get section 202 for $100 or $105 (can't remember) at 9am with Wire pre-sale.  I was striking out with Safari and Chrome and then switched to the app on my iphone and iPad.  I pulled much better tickers for Boston and Philly.

I noticed this on Tampa yesterday ... the $70 side-stage seats ... do you mean tell me that people at the end of the rows in the section furthest from the stage in the $70 section separated from the $280 by 10 feet and one aisle aren't getting a STEAL? I have a feeling I am going to end up kicking myself, but the WARNING spooked me without knowing what the stage looks like.

If I had dropped $280 for the seat next to the $70 section, I would be a nervous wreck. Someone is either getting a steal or ripped off.

I mean, those seats are literally a matter of feet above Red Zone on Edge's side! WTH????

You probably can't see the video screen from those seats. It's a decent trade off for the price difference.
