Not bad...just a bit in front of the sec 9 that is coming up now.
But for a presale, they seem pretty crappy to me.
If I'm gonna be that far back, I'd rather be elevated a bit on the lower level.

In the seating charts I've read there is another group of scetions behind section 4 (sections 6,7 and 8) before section 9. Also that row N = 14th row from front.

Anyone familiar with the venue. Does this sound right?

Actually looks like thats a different fllor plan. seems like rown sec 4 is 24th row

http://www.bankatlanticcenter.com/assets/events/mapENDSTAGE.jpg

All Seats run from right to left if sitting in seat, looking at the stage.
- For End Stage Concert Setup -
Front Floor (1&2) Rows run A-K. After row F, there is a row FF for disabled seating. There is no row "I" in either section. Each row is 22 seats wide.

Floor (3-5) Rows run A-M. There is no row "I" in any section. Each row is 14 seats wide.

cheers

The chart you linked is just the generic endstage setup.
That's not correct for this show.
The one I linked is what shows up on the presale page when you select your tix.
It's unique because they have 2 little 'runways' on each side of the stage.

Best seats for FLL when travelling with kids ?

I need three seats for FLL so no BestBuy for me.

I'm taking my 14 and 11 year old boys with me (ssh ! don't tell them :) ), and as they are vertically challenged, floor seats don't sound like a good idea, even if they are still there tomorrow morning.

I figure anything in 101-103 or 118-115 is about the best (again, if they come up), anyone know the arena and can comment ?

BTW, last tour had lawn tkts at the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa... wonderful cool evening, loved laying back on the lawn waiting for the main event... but it was too quiet !... apparently major noise abatement issues there... sheesh, if you can hear yourself sing along, it ain't loud enough !

Just got a decent seat; I guess I can't complain. I think they're better seats than the last time I saw them, section 102, row 1

Does anyone know if they tend to re-sell quickly? I'm only asking because some crazy emergency might come up and I won't be able to make it.

And I know this is probably not the place to do it, but screw Ticketmaster and their outrageous "convenience" fees! This ticket would have cost me less than $100 if it wasn't for all that extra crap they add on to make money for themselves!

Roll on November!

Sounds like excellent seats.

I got s105, but I guess as I needed three seats, that would explain why I'm quite a few rows back from the front, but still lower level, so happy enough with that.

All the fees are nuts, but it's a monopoly, nothing we can do about it but suck it up.

$349 for three seats.... no concessions for kids either :)

Tom, your kids are not going to want any concessions, 'cos the show is going to be that amazing. If I had kids, I'd be taking them too!

And KelKell, do you live in Central Florida? 'Cos it takes me about three hours to get to Sunrise. Right about now I am wishing I was still in college in Miami, just because of the convenience, lol.

My friend semi-pressured me to go to the BankAtlantic Center with him last week to see The Cure. That drive was a pain, but The Cure played one of the longest sets of any band I have ever seen live. I hope Coldplay gives them a run for their money and plays just as long! I can't believe I'm seeing them again. I'm trying to wrap my head around it.

I hope everyone going has fun. I know it's months away, but still..Have fun!
