if you couldnt get presale tickets, the tickets go on sale to the general public at ten on saturday on ticketmaster. my advice to you is get on there right at ten and get best available. they go fast and alot of the time the more you search for tickets the worse they get!

Thanks, but I already know all that. Im ready for the big rush.


So floor seats are the best for getting up close to the stage?

And is it first come first serve with those seats?

Do you have to stand?

Will there be any of these tickets left for general sale?

Any help would be much appreciated.


Maybe Ill see you there...

i didn't do the presale this morning because i won't be in the country on july 3. i can't tell you how much it pains me to be missing this :bigcry:

this is why i'm so hoping to see them at MSG--it's really my only chance to see them this summer, outside of the today show.

i just noticed that they're doing the XL center (this is the new name for the civic center, yeah?) rather than the meadows (or the dodge center) like they did the last time.

i can't believe i'm not going :bigcry:

i have never had floor seats before but im guessing its your best chance to get up close instead of lower upper level (youll never get close to the stage all the way up there)

im pretty sure its first come first serve, obviously the sooner you get online to get tickets the better your chances are for getting good seats. sometimes if you wait a few mins someone "throws" back tickets they had holding into the pool to choose from and youll get those good seats. sometimes its a matter of luck but again if it were me id be online right at ten am.

i have seat numbers on my tickets so its not general admission and there will be seats to sit in (but really who will be sitting in their seats?? haha)

i really couldnt tell you what tickets will be left for general sale but im thinking there will still be a some good seats left from but since they go fast youre better off trying early.

for instance-- i was online right at ten am this morning for presale tickets. first search (i was on two computers) i got UPPER LEVEL SEATING! i searched again and got floor tickets.... then i searched on the other computer for a better section and kept getting lower level. i bought the floor seats i had. when i got home from work at 530 pm i searched online again for presale tickets with another code i had out of curiousity to see what was left and i got floor seats a few rows behind the section i got this morning, and i tried a few times getting the same exact tickets. i was surprised floor seats were still left.

so hope this info helps. i rambled on quite a bit..... haha what else is new

aww im sorry.... maybe there is a show you can go to at the end of the tour?? theres a boston show on nov 3rd. and yeah its the civic center. i saw them at the meadows when they were there and it was such a great atmosphere with the warm (too warm) weather and the pavilion being open, it was great but the PIT is general admission and im glad i have actual seats, i dont want to be stressed the day of the show trying to wait in line all day to get a good spot

i'm hoping to be able to go to east rutherford, NJ on october 26th to see them, because i go to college in PA, and boston is a bit too far from there :(. but i'm going to be living in europe all summer, so if the NJ tickets go onsale before mid-august, i'm screwed for that too...

PLEASE, god, say i'm going to MSG...

i guess at the very least i'll have the today show.

i saw them at the meadows too, and that was just TOO hot. i was on the flat part close to the stage as well, but i did have a seat. and then the time after that i went all the way up to mohegan sun, but i had pretty crappy seats. i don't even mind if i have bad seats at MSG, i just want to BE THERE!

Anyone going to Hartford show, please stop by!

I know there is already a thread for the Hartford CT XL Center show, but I cant find it.

Anyway, who else is going to the XL Center on July 3rd, what seats did you get, and will I see you there?

I got Section 7 Row F seats 9 and 10.

I got lower level sec 104 row E.
Are these at least decent? I've never been to a concert at the civic center so I'm wondering. It does say its full view but I'm still unsure.

^Im really not too sure but they sound pretty good
I got Section 7 Row F

I really think it doesnt matter where you sit, the show is gonna be awesome. Plus farther seats will have better sound as I will be in a pit full of people singing at the top of their lungs, so I wont even hear Chris most of the time.

Hey, a concert's a concert

Judging from the seat chart section 104 should be a great view!
